Guess what "Dragon Balls" and Oreos have in common.
Both of them are round, you say? Yes, but there's more: Both of them have been loved by many people around the world for quite a long time!
"Dragon Ball" is a legendary anime with over 40 years of history. Oreo is a 110-year-old long-selling cookie brand.
Now, the internationally popular anime franchise and the iconic cookie brand are collaborating to celebrate and promote the latest "Dragon Ball" movie, "Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero."
For this collaboration, they've started selling special package versions of Oreo: Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Oreo Dragon Ball Pack Vanilla Cream 30 pieces (「ドラゴンボール超 スーパーヒーロー」オレオ ドラゴンボールパック バニラクリーム 30枚).
There are two types of these special packages. One of the designs has Goku firing his special Kamehameha energy attack. In another version, Goku is smiling confidently in a fighting pose.
This character in the white coat is Dr Hedo (Dr.ヘド). He's an important character in the movie. According to the press release, Dr Hedo is a genius scientist, hired by Magenta マゼンタ who is the president of Red Pharmaceuticals, the public face of the Red Ribbon Army.
He's still a mysterious character, but here's a small tip about him... He has a sweet tooth! Look at the screenshot from the new movie below.
It seems that Magenta and Dr Hedo are having a serious talk. However, if you look carefully, you can find something familiar in Dr Hedo’s hand. Yes, he is eating an Oreo cookie! In the movie, you will see many scenes where Dr Hedo eats Oreos. Fans of "Dragon Ball" (and Oreos?) might have fun finding out how many times Dr Hedo eats them in the movie.
These two new android characters are created by Dr Hedo. The upper one is Gamma 1 ガンマ１号 and the lower one is Gamma 2 ガンマ２号.
Although "Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero" is set to release on June 11 in Japan, the special collaboration version of Oreo is already available at supermarkets, convenience stores, and drug stores in Japan.
Note: You may need to use a proxy shopping service such as Buyee or White Rabbit Express if you'd like to have it shipped internationally.
