Dragon Ball’s Goku shows off his moves in an amazingly smooth stop-motion animation

An ordinary Goku action figure comes to life with Saiyan speed and agility in an incredibly well-animated stop-motion video.

dragon ball‘s Goku shows up in a new video from the stop-motion animation master on the Animist YouTube channel.

Animist’s latest work sees Goku practice some flips and spin kicks before smiling at the camera. Numerous others dragon ball characters can be seen in the background as they watch Saiyan’s martial arts exhibition, including Krillin and Piccolo, as well as the villains Frieza and Majin Buu. The star of one of the animator’s earlier videos, a figure of Vegeta in his usual Super Saiyan form, can also be seen. In addition to the animation itself, Animist also posted a lengthy production video showing all the meticulous effort and attention to detail that helped create the short clip.

More of the animator’s work can be seen on their YouTube channel. In addition to their latest video, they have produced several others dragon ball shorts, including an animation of Vegeta rehearsing his air combinations, and another short film looking back at a young Goku’s original adventure with Bulma. Animist has also produced stop-motion shorts based on a number of other Japanese anime, manga and video game series, including The legend of Zelda, Jujutsu Kaisen and Demon killer.

The new stop-motion video is reminiscent of the original teaser trailer for the next one dragon ball movie, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. The film was unveiled in 2021 with a short teaser video that similarly showed Goku getting warmed up before falling into his iconic fighting position. Super Hero will be the first film in the series to be fully CG-animated, as the film uses a unique shadow and animation style that attempts to replicate the look of Akira Toriyama’s hand-drawn art with polygonal 3D models. The film is scheduled to be released in Japan on April 22. An international release of Saiyan’s latest adventure has not yet been released, but the film’s producers have previously stated that they are working hard to bridge the gap between Super Hero‘s Japanese premiere and its western release were as short as possible.

Fans may also want to see more of Goku in the near future, as series producer Akio Iyoku recently teased that there might be more dragon ball anime in 2022 in addition to the new film. Iyoku did not announce anything concrete, but fans speculate that he may have teased the return of Dragon Ball Super anime, which ended its original broadcast in 2017. Since the anime went off the air, Dragon Ball Super manga has completed an entire arc, the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga, and is nearing the end of its current story, the Granolah the Survivor saga. Both arcs have not yet received an animated adaptation.
