Dragon Ball Super

Recommended Posts

Ok so with the success of Resurrection F Toei Animation has confirmed that in July this year we will be getting a new Dragon Ball TV Series!  :bringit::worshippy:  :smallbiggrin:

 

 

The story and characters will be developed by original manga author Akira Toriyama himself. The Story will follow the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain earth’s fragile peace. It is unknown if it if it will tie into Battle of Gods and Resurrection F at this time.

Sounds great. This should wipe Dragon Ball GT completely out of the series entirely. I'm wondering how many episodes and seasons its going to have. 9  new seasons maybe?

Question. Is Goku going to be the main character still?

 

From what little we know so far yes however its still very early.

 

I guess we'll see some new Super Saiyan transformations this series. I'm guessing SSJ4 is out of the question.  :P

I... Don't get it...

 

If Beerus is in it... has the movie happened? if so, why is Goku still a golden super saiya-jin?

 

I know they have mentioned that the last 2 movies were supposed to be "canon"... Ugh. My brain.

The problem is that we no nothing about where the series is starting from, my best guess is that it may be taking place between BoG and RoF or possible it may be a serialized version of the story from those movies with new plot lines mixed in. We wont know until tomorrow when the full trailer is released.

Ok this is a screen shot taken from the new Dragon Ball super website. From What we can see all the characters are wearing their Battle of Gods outfits. We also have two new characters a guy who looks like an overweight Beerus (possibley a God of Destruction from another universe) and a woman looks very similar to Whis (most likely she is the attendant and teacher of the new god).
 
With just this small amount of information I am guessing the movie takes place after Battle of Gods but before Resurrection F

Ok here's a rough traslation of the first chapter of the Dragon Ball Super Manga. The Story kicks off about two years after Goku beat Buu.

 

Basically. Goku imagines fighting Freeza/Cell/Boo while farming; Goten's off from school and is helping him out. Satan shows up and offers him money from the world peace prize (kind of sounds like the DB Earth equivalent of the Noble). Goku refuses at first (he wasn't the only one who fought Boo after all, and even Satan did his part), but finally agrees to accept some of the prize when Goten points out that with it, Chi Chi will probably allow him to stop farming and go off and train at Kaio's. Meanwhile, out in space Beerus is having a big meal prepared for him by the inhabitants of some planet scheduled for destruction (the idea apparently being that he'll spare the planet if he likes their food). The aliens poison the meal, but it doesn't work on Beerus. Ultimately Beerus destroys the planet as scheduled, but the name of one of the dishes (the "Soup Yasai Jinkot") rings a bell with him: it reminds him of the "Super Saiyan God" from his prophetic dream. Beerus and Whis decide to head back home, so that Beerus can try and remember better. Meanwhile, the Kaioshins are keeping tabs on Beerus: East Kaioshin notes that a planet has been wiped out, while Elder Kaioshin has an uneasy premonition. So, Goku seems set to head to Kaio's to train, while Beerus only knows of Super Saiyan God from his dream. In other words, all signs point to this being a prequel to (possibly an alternate version of) BoG.

 

A few more details:

 

Goten's off from school (since it's Sunday), and has brought his dad some bento. Goku has Goten drive the tractor while he eats the bento. Once it's finished, he turns into a Super Saiyan, then closes his eyes and imagines fighting Freeza/Cell/Pure Boo. While he does this, Goten drives off a cliff...so Goku saves Goten and the tractor (the tractor he throws back up to the top of the cliff). Goku says he's training in case someone strong like Boo ever turns up, but Chi Chi wants him to work (cue "mom's the real strongest in the universe" joke from Goten). Goten says grandpa Gyuumao is out of money, but Chi Chi thinks Goku ought to be able to get a job that would earn some money, like Mister Satan. Goku says he just likes to train.

And who should show up at that moment but Mister Satan himself (speak of the devil)? He wants Goku to have the 100 million zenny peace prize he received for beating Boo, since he doesn't feel he deserves it. Goku has to have it explained to him that 100 million zenny is 100,000 zenny one thousand times over. This freaks Goku out, and he doesn't want such an insane amount of money. Then of course he agrees when Goten points out that with the money, he wouldn't have to work and could just go to Kaio's to train. With the Beerus/Whis stuff...I think I already covered everything. Beerus isn't terribly upset that the aliens try and kill him with poison (he mostly just thinks they're stupid for believing poison would work on him). Yet he still destroys their planet anyway, something he matter-of-factly announces ahead of time after trying their "Soup Yasai Jinkot"(the aliens then try and shoot him, but obviously that doesn't work either)

Also we finally know the name of the chubby Beerus-looking guy from the promotional art. his name is Champ, a pun of Champagne.

A better look at the new God of Destruction Champa and his Attendant.

The plot sounds kind of boring, but a story has to get started somehow. :)

 

Well Dragon Ball's original beginning was rather humble too. They only had a pterosaur try to eat Bulma. Z had Goku visiting his friends while Raditz arrived. So having Goku doing farm work while Beerus destroys a planet is by far the most exiting kick-off to a series we've had.

 

Or we could start things off with an awesome fight then introduce a dragon we've never seen before and have it turn Goku into a kid by accident and then........GT!

News from Akira Toriyama himself.


 


“Dragon Ball Super†is a complete continuation of the Majin Buu story arc. It’s got a bit of post-battle aftermath, continues with the “Battle of Gods†arc where the God of Destruction Beerus appears and the “Revival of ‘F'†arc where Freeza comes back to life, and then, I’ve written a strange new story where they finally depart from this universe. They’re fighting against their neighbors, Universe 6! They’ll yell at me if I give away too many spoilers, so I’ll keep the rest a secret, but they’re chasing after giant Super Dragon Balls; I think things will unfold in a bright and simple way, that will be really fun and exciting!


 


Since it’s another universe, loads of new characters will turn up. I’ll do my best to draw the tons of character designs necessary, so I’m looking forward to this too.


You know, it suddenly occurs to me that somewhere along the line the Dragon Ball anime has become quite a huge story. Since I’m the guy who drew the thing, it’s a bit weird for me to say this, but when I first started out I never dreamed it would have a universe as a setting (laughs). Don’t worry though, it’s still going to be the same sort of easy-to-understand content as always. Please be sure to watch Dragon Ball Super on TV!

Opening is out!

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMShwUJKvB4

 

I find it rather... Meh.

 

Definitely not as catchy as Dragonball Z's 2 previous openings, and it not being Hironobu Kageyama just doesn't make it feel "Authentic".(Yeah I know GT didn't either. And feels even less authentic for it as well).

 

Animation looks good though.

I wonder if the whole series will be taking place before Battle of Gods? I really hope it will jump to a point after Resurrection of F.

 

According to what has been said, a bit of all 3. Aftermath of DBZ, BoG and seems to deal with RoF as well.

 

I hope it doesn't jump around too much.

 

Like maybe after an episode we get a "This is the part where you watch BoG. the next episode will continue afterwards."
