Before there was Freeza, before there was Piccolo, there was the imp Emperor Pilaf and his minions, trenchcoat wearing woman Mai and dog ninja Shu. Now, there's speculation that the 2013 Dragon Ball Z anime movie might be going back to the earliest bits of the series with a return of these comical antagonists.
Then at the 29th Tokyo Prize Figure Fair, a set of six 7cm movie figures boasted the mandatory Goku and Vegeta, three mystery figures, and Pilaf, Mai and Shu.
It's been stated that new movie will take place between Dragon Ball manga chapters 517 and 518, in the 10 year timeskip after Goku defeats Buu, before before the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament.
Do you think Pilaf and company will be in the movie for more than a brief cameo?
