The Dragon Ball World Adventure feature at Comic-Con International in San Diego is setting its sight on the world record, bringing fans of the popular franchise together for the world's largest Kamehameha.
The 2019 Dragon Ball World Adventure will open with a special Guinness World Records attempt to become the largest gathering of people simultaneously performing the iconic energy attack, a trademark of the series' main character Goku. Fans will gather for the attempt on Wednesday, July 17 at 3:30 p.m. on the Marriott Marina Terrace at the Marriott Marquis San Diego.
The first 1,000 aspiring Saiyans to arrive at the Marriott will receive a special scouter that they can wear while attempting the record. From the amount of people expected to show, power levels should absolutely exceed 9000. Participants will be led in the attempt by actor Sean Schemmel, the voice of Goku in the Dragon Ball anime's English dub. Guinness World Records will be onsite to supervise and validate the record attempt.
Co-sponsored and presented jointly by Bandai and Toei Animation, the 2019 Dragon Ball World Adventure will then continue at Comic-Con from July 18-21 and will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Attractions will include interactive kiosks featuring the latest Dragon Ball video game titles, a photo booth that loops poses into an animated GIF and a "sticker rally" to exchange stickers for various pieces of merchandise.
Following Comic-Con, World Adventure will travel to seven additional locations around the world including stops in New York City; Mexico City, Mexico; Cologne, Germany; Barcelona, Spain; Shanghai, China; Hong Kong, China; and Tokyo, Japan.
