At the beginning of this I was hoping that Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ could beat the North American box office of the reviled Dragon Ball Evolution that dream fell short however not by much as Resurrection ‘F’ lost by only $1,300,000.00.

Considering the fact Resurection ‘F’ had far less screens showing the film as opposed to Evolution one could look at this as a victory in a sense. That being said regardless the relative strength of the film certainly shows a willingness of anime fans in general and Dragon Ball fans in particular to see the favorite franchises on the big screen. It’s unknown if we’ll see anything but major franchises but it as good sign of health for the anime industry regardless.
