It won’t be much longer now until the newest Dragon Ball film, Resurrection ‘F,’ opens in theaters across Japan on April 18. That means it’s high time for the advertising to begin. On March 24 the first TV spot aired, giving us a glimpse of what’s to come and a little more fighting and characters than shown in the previous trailer. You can see for yourself in the video below, but rest assured that it’s chock-full of all the tea sipping and long discussions about the feelings that the series is famous for.

In the quick trailer we can see the Ginyu Force and a butt-load of other Frieza followers go to war against Goku and friends, presented in a fast-paced montage including:


▼ Krillin, whom we can look forward to dying

▼ Piccolo dusting off his makankosappo (special beam cannon)

▼ Gohan sporting a new look

▼ And Master Roshi, during whose scene we find that Momoiro Clover Z is performing the theme song rather than the previously mentioned Maximum the Hormone

If you blinked during that, you might be asking “Where’s Vegeta?” especially since he was said to play a major part in this film. Perhaps they wanted to downplay those rumors by putting him in the trailer for about a tenth of a second.

Also making an appearance is the God of Destruction Beerus from the previous film.

In addition we can see Jaco the Galactic Patrolman from Akira Toriyama’s spin-off prequel series to Dragon Ball. His inclusion was announced earlier this month.

And finally we are treated to a little tussle between Goku and Frieza with a quick peek and his golden form.

Viewers of the commercial had this to say:

Where’s Yamcha?
Jaco’s in it, but he’s probably only loosely connected to the plot.
Wasn’t Maximum the Hormone supposed to be doing the battle song?
Is Master Roshi really strong enough to fight a mob of Fireza’s people?
As usual, I want to see it.

There certainly are a lot of questions triggered by this quick TV spot, but those will have to wait until April 18 when Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ is released in Japan.
