Hundreds of People Are Set to Converge on Aotea Square to Simultaneously 'Scream like Goku'

When most folks scream, they're not powering up their life force, or ki, in battle. Most folks aren't Dragon Ball Z's Goku, however. If you're a fan of the anime, you've probably wished you were at least once or twice, and bunch of gatherings at New Zealand public spaces will let you scream out your non earth-saving frustrations.

Yes, 'Scream like Goku' sessions are a real thing, and they're exactly what they sound like — which, we're certain will be loud. Starting in New York last weekDragon Ball Z aficionados have been amassing around famous landmarks and letting their voices be heard. We'll let you decide whether they're endeavouring to fend off Frieza, trying to become a Super Saiyan, celebrating the against Majin Buu, or just yelling their love (or all of the above).

A host of other US sites are slated to follow, as well as Singapore — and Australian Dragon Ball Z fans have been quick to jump into the mix. The session down under took place over the weekend at the Sydney Opera House. Auckland has its turn at Aotea Centre on October 10. Over 600 people have rsvp'd for the Facebook event while another 2900 have expressed their interest.

Dressing up is encouraged, even if you just throw on something orange. If you're not sure how you should be screaming, let this build up some inspiration. Even if you're not a Dragon Ball Z fan, screaming at the top of your lungs with hundreds of other people is bound to be cathartic.
