Macy’s has partnered with Funimation to bring Japanese Anime to New York. Thursday it was announced that Dragon Ball Super’s Saiyan superstar Goku will have his very own balloon. Anime fandom is excited to see a beloved character in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.
The balloon will be modeled after the Godlike Super Saiyan Blue Form. This form first appeared in the Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F film. Although the amount of power that is inside of Goku is beyond comparison in some circles, this time he will be filled with Helium.
