Dragon ball Evolution Apology Letter
This was the apology letter written by the writer of Dragon ball evolution : (Source – ANN)
“I knew that it would eventually come down to this one day. Dragon Ball : Evolution marked a very painful creative point in my life. To have something with my name on it as the writer be so globally reviled is gut wrenching. To receive hate mail from all over the world is heartbreaking. I spent so many years trying to deflect the blame, but at the end of the day it all comes down to the written word on pa
ge and I take full responsibility for what was such a disappointment to so many fans. I did the best I could, but at the end of the day, I ‘dropped the dragon ball.’
I went into the project chasing after a big payday, not as a fan of the franchise but as a businessman taking on an assignment. I have learned that when you go into a creative endeavor without passion you come out with sub-optimal results, and sometimes flat out garbage. So I’m not blaming anyone for Dragon Ball but myself. As a fanboy of other series, I know what it’s like to have something you love and anticipate be so disappointing.
To all the Dragon Ball fans out there, I sincerely apologize. I hope I can make it up to you by creating something really cool and entertaining that you will like and that is also something I am passionate about. That’s the only work I do now.”
The dragon ball evolution movie came out in the year 2009 and after 7 years he apologised for the movie, Well certainly the movie didn’t stick to the original created by Akira Toriyama and created a different world of Dragon ball which was an utter failure. So i can’t say anything about the apology letter written by Ben Ramsey, all i can say that at least its good that he apologized, even though he is late but apologising to hundreds and thousands of fans who sent hate mails to him is not an easy thing to do!
