Genkidama Saves The World
I'm sure you all have heard about the devastating 8.9 earthquake that recently hit Japan. I have refrained from commenting on it on this blog, due to he fact that anything I say will probably be meaningless. However, I would like to encourage everyone reading this to donate money to a relief program, and here is a way that you can help, for free, without getting off the computer. Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama and Weekly Shounen Jump publisher Shueisha have posted a video on You Tube entitled "JAPAN EARTHQUAKE-"Genkidama" Saves the World!" The plan is that the little bit of advertising revenue generated through page views will all be donated towards relief programs. The Genkidama, as some readers may know, is the power-up Son Goku uses in the final volume of Dragon Ball, harnessing the ki of everyone on earth, to make a big fireball. The video has been posted in both English and Japanese, and the English version can be viewed here. Lets all give a little ki to help Japan, people!
