Fans of the anime series Dragon Ball were invited to take part of a Guinness World Records attempt on the opening day of San Diego Comic-Con.
The event held by Bandai and Toei Animation was to celebrate the start of the 2019 Dragon Ball World Adventure tour. The record they were trying to break was to be the largest gathering of people that perform the super energy attack called the Kamehameha together.
The tour will be at SDCC from the 18th to the 21st this month, and then will go to seven other locations around the world. During their time at SDCC, they will have a sticker rally, animated GIF photo booth, collectibles, exclusives, and lots more.
In the show, you need to have the seven Dragon Balls to summon Shenron to grant the wish. So, the tour travelling to seven locations makes sense, since the Dragon Balls are scattered all over and need to be collected.
Everyone gathered on the terrace at the Marriott Marina on Wednesday, July 17 for the record attempt. It was led by the English voice actor of the character Goku, Sean Schemmel (DC Super Friends), and there was a Guinness World Records representative on-site to supervise.
A moment forever captured in history. We did it!!! Thank you for everyone who joined us to help set THE official record for the largest gathering of a Kamehameha attack ever at 786 people!! pic.twitter.com/symqr93sGN

With 786 people doing the Kamehameha together, they successfully broke the previous record of 250 people. Congratulations!
