The tragedy of Dragon Ball is happening again...
Couldn't the original author use a veto against this movie?
This is useless. Please stop!
Letting Hollywood do a movie from Naruto is already a mistake. I don't want to see another Dragon Ball tragedy!
It would be better if it was done in Japan.
After the Dragon Ball tragedy I'm really afraid for this movie! I think that's a bad idea!
I do agree with you. I guess we'll just have to wait and see...
