Having heard about our live experiments at Anime Boston, The Chibi Project was invited to Nan Desu Kan 2004 to run Anime Unscripted and conduct a live Chibi Project experiment.

Fans of The Chibi Project had been asking for us to take on Dragonball Z for a while. This seemed like a good time.

A fan from the audience videotaped the experiment while PatrickD started cutting. The first cut was in the crotch area moving up to the chest. The first piece to come off was part of the green costume around his waist. With the front cut through completely, it just fell off. From there, cuts were made into his chest. Cutting into the chest wasn't doing much. Moving the Dremel back to the crotch, it didn't take long for the leg to come off.

With one leg missing, his waist was the next target. Made with rather thick plastic, it took a bit of effort but eventually loosened up and fell off.

The audience cheered as each limb came off. With time for the panel running short and the Dremel battery running low, it was time to wrap this up. The grand finale was his neck. Just a quick slice and his head popped off and rolled around on the table.

With the head falling to the table, the test was over. The fan who videotaped this experiment grabbed the green waist piece and returned to the audience. The extra heads and dragonballs that were included with the figure were tossed into the audience. The Chibi Project has kept all other pieces to display at future convention appearances.
