IXN Transmedia conducted an interview with Adam Newman of Tamashii Nations at this year’s San Diego Comic Con and it reveals some excellent information about the future of the brand. Not all of the information is relevant to Dragon Ball or even exclusively Japanese properties, but the interview is well conducted and reveals quite a bit of insight into what Tamashii is thinking and where they hope to go in the future.
One aspect that stood out to me in the interview is that Adam mentions that Dragon Ball is “over all their number one line in Western markets” and that they’ve been listening to the result of surveys conducted on what Dragon Ball collectors want. Additionally, he says that they’re taking these surveys more seriously, now more than ever and they’ll be “going hard” on Dragon Ball next year!
Be sure to watch the interview in its entirety as he discusses Dragon Ball through out the entire video, with other properties in between.
Pretty exciting news to hear, especially considering the source!
