Dragon Ball Z has joined Navratri festivities in India this year.
Durga Puja is currently being celebrated in various parts of India. Dragon Ball Z joined the celebration when Panch Mandir Durga Puja pandal at Harmu, Ranchi, Jharkhand, revealed a large figurine of Broly from the world-famous anime series.
The figurine was really well done and filled every viewer with an appreciation for the artisan. There was an iconic Dragon ball saiyan’s hairstyle, and Broly ferocious stature left the fan of the series in awe.
Meanwhile, Broly was standing high and might. The organizers also took care of the fans of MCU and DC Universes with Spiderman and Batman figurines.
It might surprise some people how suddenly this anime has taken favour of viewers in India. 3 years ago, the franchise released a movie Dragon Ball Super–Broly on 29th March in India, and it did better than expected.
But still, it doesn’t seem this was the sole reason for the series’ popularity. There was once a time when the Dragon Ball series was a sensation among fans in India, but unfortunately, it was taken off air in 2009 along with many great animes.
Though on 22nd May 2022, Dragon Ball returned on Cartoon Network India, triggering the old fans and igniting the new fans all around the country, with the Hindi dub its reach grew larger, and hence Dragon Ball came stronger than expected in India, stirring focus of other channels like Sony Yay who has brought Naruto back!
Following the television series there was another movie, Dragon Ball–Super Hero, released on 26th August 2022 in India. With all this amazing line-up for anime fans, the Otaku revolution has begun!
