Check out this awesome find from Japanator: apparently a group of fans in France (or perhaps Belgium? I'm not well-versed enough to be able to tell) held a funeral for Dragon Ball's Goku, who fell victim to the oldest curse of them all: mainstream marketing.

Actually, the “demise” is being attributed to both Hollywood and to Justin Chatwin himself, although it seems to me that if a character is beloved enough to hold a funeral for, he's not really “dead.” (Besides, spoiler alert! Goku doesn't die in the movie.)

It's still a pretty awesome idea, though, and the video is fun to watch with its soundtrack of Gary Jules' version of “Mad World” (from the Donnie Darko soundtrack). Check it out, and then tell me whether you'd attend such a funeral...and what you would wear to it.

I wonder if this is German or French?  Nice music as homage though.  I would have thought there would be female fans?

I'm thinking it's french. If you look at the flowers they say Notre Hero.

Which in French means Our Hero.

The title is says Hommage à la plus grande des Heros.

Which in English means Tribute to the Greatest of Heroes.

Miz: it's definitely French, but French is spoken in more countries than just France (particularly common in Belgium, and it's also one of the main languages of Switzerland), which is why I hesitated to assume that they were French fans. :)

From the video description, these guys are from France and it takes place in a city -Labege- near Toulouse (South-West of France, not very far from Spain).
Quick translation of what they say at the beginning in case of :
Guy holding the picture: "It's the Fox that killed him, not Cell but the Fox"
Off-screen voice: "Him and many others"
Guy holding the picture: "Never again, never again. For One Piece, Naruto and the others, never again. Please"

I think the [translated] quote in video said it best, "Goku didn't succumb to Freeza, Cell, or Buu, but he lost to Hollywood".

If I were to attend such a funeral, I would wear my Archer costume (actually if you research some of the pieces of his outfit, it's technically clothing that knights would wear over their armor to their Lord's funeral), to show that even heroes of other timelines wish to pay their respects too.
