Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is now making its way into theaters around the world. In fact, after its premiere in Mexico and Latin America it has become an instant success, but they are not the only countries excited by this event. Fans in Israel are celebrating in a big way, as they have come together to breaking the world record for the most people performing a Kamehameha at once.
As reported by The Jerusalem Post, 974 participants gathered at the Central City theater in Isreal for a special screening of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. It was here that they were led by Goku’s voice actor in the Hebrew dub, Avi Meir, and Gohan’s voice actor, Uri Har Lev in the huge Kamehameha wave. They officially broke the record held by fans who attended San Diego Comic-Con in 2019, which had 784 fans participating in the movement. You can see a clip of the action below, as seen by @DBSChronicles on Twitter:
