A completely new TV anime series from the Dragon Ball franchise titled Dragon Ball Super was announced by Toei Animation today. The series will feature an original story by Akira Toriyama, the creator of the initial Dragon Ball manga. Dragon Ball Super will premiere in Summer 2015 on Fuji TV and will air weekly.

The story will take place chronologically after the Majin Buu Saga arc, which is currently airing in a remastered version that adheres more to the original manga. Titled Dragon Ball Kai, the TV anime began airing in April 2014 and will complete in June 2015, just prior to Dragon Ball Super. This series is a continuation of the original Dragon Ball reboot, also titled Dragon Ball Kai, which aired between April 2009 and March 2011.

Cast
Gokuu Son: Masako Nozawa (reprise)

Staff
Original Story: Akira Toriyama
Director: Kimitoshi Chioka (Kamisama Kazoku)
Studio: Toei Animation
Production: Fuji TV, Yomiko Advertising, Toei Animation

The previously announced and 15th Dragon Ball Z movie Fukkatsu no F premiered in theaters on April 18.

Why would that mean that? Toei has more than enough animators and unlike most they get paid decently

Well I heared rumours that Digimon Tri would take the spot of DBZ Kai 2014 after it ends,but you're right Toei has more than enough animators.Guess we'll have to wait until May then.

holy fuck...

I mean, I'm excited, but... is this really a good idea? I feel as if the Dragon Ball style simply won't hold up now as it did back then. Don't most people nowadays only rate DBZ highly due to nostalgia? Can't say I've seen a single person who watched DBZ after already being fairly familiar with the anime medium and actually loved it.

I won't be watching this until it's dubbed anyway.

So it says it will be after the Majin Buu saga... so this will likely follow the BoG / FnF movie storylines...

I think they plan to flesh out the movies in episode form which would be kind of cool and go on from there. But yeah, this is the biggest anime news of the year... or decade (for me).
