Contest Time- Dragonball Z x4 and Afro Samurai
By Marc | March 22nd, 2009

Time for our first contest.
This time we have a few prizes to give away.

2 copies of Dragonball Z Season Eight
1 copy of Dragonball Z Double Feature- Super Android 13/Bojack Unbound (DVD version)
1 copy of Dragonball Z Triple Feature- Broly Triple Feature (DVD version)
1 copy of Afro Samurai Resurrection- Directors Cut (DVD version)
This contest we will make a smidge harder than the easiest thing possible.

Name your favorite fight from any anime, comic, cartoon, movie, or videogame and why.

My favorite five answers will get to choose their prize in order (number 1 gets whatever they want, 2, 3, and 4 get to choose from what’s left by their turn, and 5 gets the last item). If I see any that I think deserve a prize past that, I may add a prize or two to the list.

If you are under 18 please include an email address for a guardian and be aware that Afro Samurai will only be awarded on the guardians permission.
