Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Behind The Scenes

Now that Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Extended Edition has been released (on Blu-Ray/DVD!), FUNimation is starting to release a few promo videos designed to further entice fans to get one off the shelves. The latest one is a behind the scenes featurette showing the voice actors for Goku and Beerus doing their work.

Of course, since the scene they chose to feature consists of Goku and Beerus having a shouting match, you’ll get to see the voice actors scream at each other off the top of their lungs as well. It’s honestly an entertaining scene even though you kind of worry about their vocal chords (they’re professionals, kids. Don’t try it at home.)
