So good! In Japan, KFC is teaming up with the new Dragon Ball Z anime film, offering DBZ goodies when you order special meal deals. But that's not all.

As previously mentioned (here, here and here), Japanese KFCs usually have Colonel Sanders statues out front. And now, at seven locations across Japan, the Colonel is dressed as Dragon Ball character Goku and holding one of the seven starred Dragon Balls.

For example, Japanese website Fun! spotted the four-starred ball in Tokyo's Ebisu. Other locations include Fukuoka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Sendai, Osaka, and Okinawa. See all seven and ask the Colonel to grant you a lifetime of free fried chicken!

Screw chicken, it's the seasoning it's all about!

Ed: No, it's not photoshopped we actually do have a pretty popular spice blend named Vegeta..

Second ed: Actually Vegeta the spice predates DBZ for many a decades and it was allegedly so popular and sought after that it was maybe the only thing people were willing to smuggle out of Yugoslavia, the country that brought you.. the Yugo, and which managed not to collapse like other eastern countries only by allowing so much smuggling in from Italy and Hungary..
