New Battle of Gods Clip
Over on Japanese iTunes, a new clip from Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, has gone up! It doesn't really show us anything we didn't already know, but it does show us how great the animation is, and a lot more of Bils' non-fighting attitude. You can view the clip for yourself here.
A brief synopsis of the trailer: Bils is sitting at his table after having just woken up, wearing his bathrobe. He uses some weird ability to see the past, by which he views Goku's final fight as a Super Saiyan against Frieza. Whis explains to him what happened, and Bils begins to ponder over the implications of 'Super Saiyan' as it really starts to sound familiar to him. He eventually figures it out, and is excited. The video then shifts to a different scene, where Goku has powered up to Super Saiyan 3 to fight with Bils. He rushes Bils with an attack, but Bils blocks it easily, and with a mere flick of his finger, sends Goku sliding across the planet. The flick alone does enough damage to knock the breath out of Goku, as well as make him bleed a little. Bils beckons Goku back, and Goku strikes again, attacking with a flurry of blows that Bils dodges easily and jumps behind Goku. Goku goes in for another punch that blows a hole in King Kai's planet, but the punch misses, and Bils re-appears from behind Goku, and knocks him out with a simple tap to the neck.
Keep in mind that this summary is based on a raw copy of the video (IE no subtitles), and I don't speak Japanese. Having seen the entire franchise prior to this in subtitled form and knowing the plot of the movie however, I'm able to decode what's going on at least this far.
It's amazing how much we're getting out of this movie before it's even officially released. I'm sort of going to miss it all once it's all said and done, but then there's the US release to wait for.
