The highly anticipated film opens April 18
It is confirmed today that four-member Japanese hardcore punk band Maximum The Hormone's 2008 song "F" will be featured in a battle scene of the upcoming anime film Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F (Resurrection of F). The song was originally released on July 9, 2008, as their double A-side 8th single with "Tsume Tsume Tsume." It ranked 2nd in the Oricon weekly single charts, becoming one of the most popular songs of the band. The motif of the song was actually Freeza from the Dragon Ball series and the title "F" was taken from the character.
"F" was initially released without a legal permission from the copyright owner, but Toriyama, who really loved the song, later recognized it officially. In the latest comment on Comic Natalie, Toriyama confirmed that the story of the new film was inspired by the song in return.
Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F is scheduled to be released in 2D and 3D (for the first time in the anime
series) in Japan on April 18, 2015.
