Today I would like to share some interesting trivia about Dragon Ball Z!
Yes, it is THE most popular Anime in the world.
In case you had never heard of it, "Dragon Ball Z" was broadcast from 1989 to 1996 (in Japan), later broadcast around the world.
Author is Akira Toriyama and all his works are successful including Dragon Quest, Dr. Slump Arale chan.
There is a hidden message in the song that plays at the end of each episode?
You can hear mysterious words in the intro of "Dekoitobikiri ZENKAI Power!" That was running until September 1993.
When you listen to it normally, somebody talking not human-understandable language at beginning.
As a child, I thought it was some other language saying something so did not wonder what they are saying that much.
I couldn't hear what it was saying, it was kind of creepy, foreign language? Sound effect? It remained a mystery for a long time, but at one point the mystery was solved!
Now it turned out that the producer of the song recorded it to add some message behind the song.
When you Reverse Playback the song, we will be able to hear it (in Japanese, of course😉)
Here I got the source from YouTube someone added. You can check it out right now!

Did you hear that?
The weird voice, like a spell, was due to reverse play, not a curse or a foreign language, but playful.
[Well to make this song, Kenji Suzuki, Iketakeshi, Tokieda Tatsuhiro, Uchida Takashi, Yamamoto Kenji, Yanagi Hanae, and Nomura Takashi did their best.]
It was a special thanks to all the staffs who were involved in making the song.
It is saying in Japanese, so it might be kinda whatever to those who do not understand anyways, but knowing the trivia itself is kind of cool especially if you are a big fan of DBZ.
It looks like there is another message (same style) in the ending song of Dragon Ball Super as well.
If you are Interested, you can find out more about it.
That's it for today!
