This year, BellaOnline's Anime section is celebrating "The Year of the Dragon Ball" in honor of The Year of the Dragon, by posting a new Dragon Ball-related article every other week during 2012. The ninth article for the celebration is a review of the Dragon Ball Z Dragon Box Five DVD box set. This set has been added to the Dragon Ball section of the Anime Shop, and the set is being featured as an "Editor's Recommendation" on the main page of the Anime site.
This week, I also posted a review of the Astro Boy Mini Set 2 DVD box set, the Blu-ray releases of Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and Paprika, as well as the Blu-ray/DVD combo release for Ponyo. I have added the Astro Boy box set to the Anime Shop, and it is also being featured as an "Editor's Recommendation" on the main page of the Anime site this week.
