WTF Dragon Ball SUPER! no seriously DBZ is getting a sequel anime

Eighteen years after the end of Dragon Ball GT, a new Dragon Ball series is set to debut this summer. Titled Dragon Ball Chou (meaning Super), series creator Akira Toriyama will return to run the show.

The news is a bombshell for fans of the series, both in Japan and in the States. Dragon Ball Z, the sequel to the original Dragon Ball, is one of the most recognizable animes in the world, spawning movies, video games, and merchandise to the point of ubiquity. Recent movies like Battle of Gods and Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' , which hits theaters earlier this month, have only stoked the series' popularity.



Update 1:30pm ET: In an official statement released by Toei Animation, the Japanese voice actress for Goku, Masako Nozawa, expressed excitement for the new project. "I've used the word 'cho' (super) in so many commercials, games, and other media, it is fantastic that the long-awaited Dragon Ball Super will finally begin," she said. "I hope that this series will last a long time and have the same impact around the world as its predecessor."
After all of the fake rumors. It's actually happening. A new entry in the DBverse airing in July.

I wonder if it's just going to end up being a reattempt at GT with a different plot and characters?

Pretty much my exact response. more then likely this is probably because of how well the movies did (in Japan).

I'm even more shocked that it's Akira that's going to be handling it.

I was like "cool" until I saw its set to take place after GT. If it was set to take place after DBZ and retcon GT from existence I'd be alot more excited

It's set to take place after Z, specifically the Majin Saga. In other words, it happens at a similar time as the Battle of the Gods and Return of F movies. There's actually potential for it to render GT non-canon, since it takes place before the 28th Martial Arts tournament, which is when Uub shows up after the 10 year timeskip at the very end of DBZ.

edit- never mind, it seems there's no official word on when it takes place yet. I just misread the article I was reading about it. I sincerely hope it renders GT non-canon though.

Here is the article I was reading, which has this full translated statement:

Quote:
Toei Animation Begins Production on Dragon Ball Super
Drawn From a Plot By The Brand’s Original Creator, Dragon Ball Super Is The First New Series In
Eighteen Years

TOKYO (April 28, 2015) – Toei Animation has announced production on Dragon Ball Super (Japanese title; tentative for English release), the first all-new Dragon Ball television series to be released in 18 years. Following the recent events of the hit feature film, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, Dragon Ball Super will debut in Japan in July 2015.

Reuniting the franchise’s iconic characters, Dragon Ball Super will follow the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain earth’s fragile peace. Overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator, Akira Toriyama and produced with Fuji Television, Dragon Ball Super will draw on its historic past to create a bold, new universe welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers.

Introduced as a manga in Weekly Shonen Jump (published from SHUEISHA Inc.) in 1984, Dragon Ball has evolved into a globally beloved brand. Seen in more than 70 countries, with over 230 million copies of its comic books sold, Dragon Ball remains one of the most popular anime series of all time.

“Having loved Dragon Ball since childhood, it is very exciting to be a part of this project,” said Osamu Nozaki, producer for Fuji Television. “Mr. Toriyama has developed a plot that’s not only a dream come true for Dragon Ball‘s millions of fans, but one that will foster in a new generation of viewers.”

“When I joined Toei Animation, one of my first assignments saw me working on the production of Dragon Ball Z,” said Atsushi Kido, producer for Toei Animation. “While there for only a short period of time, being a part of the series left a lasting impression. We look forward to carrying on Dragon Ball‘s tremendous legacy, bringing audiences a brand new Dragon Ball with the same sense of heart and commitment that went into past Dragon Ball productions.”

“I’ve used the word ‘cho’ (super) in so many commercials, games and other media, it is fantastic that the long awaited Dragon Ball Super will finally begin,” said Masako Nozawa, Japanese voice actress of Dragon Ball’s Son Goku, Son Gohan and Son Goten. “I hope that this series will last a long time and have the same impact around the world as its predecessor.”
edit2- Oh wait I'm dumb.

I knew I wasn't pulling that Majin Buu information out of nowhere.

I'll probably watch it out of curiosity since I've been rewatching DBZ in the form of a clipshow but I don't really expect much out of it in terms of quality.

When you get down to the details of it, DBZ is an anime about people screaming at eachother until one somehow outdoes the other by some arbitrary measure of power where the villains were capable of destroying planets about 3 story arcs ago.

Toriyama didn't want to have series run as long as it did initially. But he was pressured to keep extending the cash cow's life for as long as possible until it became the undead horse we know and 'love'.

Which is why they made DBZ Kai or whatever and cut out all the retarded filler for a much more streamlined story.

GT kinda flopped since Toriyama's involvement was so minimal compared to previous projects and it showed. That being said even though I greatly prefer reading a manga over watching anime any day I'll still give DBSuper a shot.
