Dragon Ball is no stranger to a good mashup video, but you would probably never guess that Fox's police procedural comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine would be a great source for some Dragon Ball mashup goodness. However, as you can see above, one fan of both Dragon Ball Super and Brooklyn Nine-Nine has found the perfect way to bring both shows together in one great mashup.
If you're not familiar: the video imitates Brooklyn Nine-Nine's opening credits sequence, which showcases each member of the 99th Precinct in a freeze-frame moment, while displaying the actor's name. Each moment is selected to highlight the respective characters' personalities and role in the squad.
The real genius of this mashup video is how its maker, Julius Estolano, frames each Dragon Ball Super character moment in the Brooklyn Nine-Nine style. You can tell Estolano is a true DBS fans, a she perfectly captures Goku's aloofness, Vegeta's exasperation, Piccolo's responsibility, Krillin's meekness, Whis' flamboyance, and Trunks' submissiveness. It works on both levels of the mashup, honoring both shows while creating something wonderfully novel by mixing them together.
Both Dragon Ball Super and Brooklyn Nine-Nine have seen some big upsets in 2018. DBS ended unexpectedly back in April, at the height of its popularity, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine was cut from Fox's slate of programs in May. However, both shows have managed to bounce back: Dragon Ball Super will release a highly-anticipated first movie in December, and it's expected to set up an entire new era of the anime series, continuing the DBS timeline. Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been saved by NBC, and will continue on that network. Both series have extremely passionate and fanbases, so it will be interesting to see how much crossover there is between those who are into both.
Dragon Ball Heroes is the new promotional anime series now streaming online in Japan. Dragon Ball Super: The Movie will be released in December. Dragon Ball Super airs its English Dubs Saturday nights on Cartoon Network's Toonami.
The first Dragon Ball Super film, now titled Dragon Ball Super: Broly, is set to release this December in Japan, and has released its first trailer. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and has been confirmed to feature a rebooted take on the famous raging Saiyan Broly. Not only does it aim to be the best film in the series, original creator Akira Toriyama will be contributing to the film's script and character designs. Fans will get their first look at the new film during the Dragon Ball North America Tour and San Diego Comic-Con as well.
