    this is where the series is going to go, but it does not begins that way, the first episode is clearly before meating bills and the freezer resurrection

      The Second as well, but if you see the clip of the third episode at the end of the second, you’ll see that it starts exactly where Battle of Gods did, Goku is training at Kaio and with the blue outfit and its Bulmas birthday.. so it’ll catch up eventually..

      • UltimateDeadpool

        yes but this time the birthday is on a cruise ship. and that’s the odd thing about it, whe wil just need to watch the show for more answers.

        P.S Does somebody know how mutch episodes dragon ball super will have?

        • MajinRob

          It confirmed to have at least 100 episodes, but that could be extended.

      As I said right upwards, it looks like the series will recton some of the ” timeline ” placements of the movies and OVAs. Clearly only a few days have passed since Episode 1 and this is six months after Buu’s defeat. Not 4 years.

      So BoG movie : useless.

  • MadMike

    All in all it begins before the “Battle of Gods” – I wonder how they’ll do the “jump”. At least I hope they will have a jump, otherwise the “BoG” film is for naught.

    • Oncle SamGaming

      Well apparently that’s the case. Because episode 1 stated six months only have passed since Buu’s defeat, and like 5 days later Goku goes training and the next day Beerus comes and Bulma has her birthday party. Seems like Akira wants to make right on the fact that the kids should have changed physically if four years had really past.

      But I just wonder now how he will justify Pan’s new birthday and the fact that this means that they won’t be able to reference Tarble since he’s not been to Earth yet … ( the OVA he is in takes place two years after Buu ).

      Seriously, anime dudes … get your stories right.

    I recently watched through the Buu saga again, and I’m on the last couple episodes, and I forgot that these took place 10 years after Buu died. So, I’m confused, are they retconning these last few episodes or what? Did these last few episodes not occur in the manga and are they simply filler? I’m jumping the gun in posting right now since I haven’t actually finished watching these episodes, but perhaps there’s enough ambiguity that it’ll allow for this new series to fit into all that. I don’t know, I’m just thinking out loud. Well, typing.

    • Floyd Norman

      No 🙂 They are based between Post Buu saga and Uub appearing.

      Goten and Trunks are still kids in Super 🙂

      Which that Goku has already achieved SSJGSSJ when he fights Uub 🙂

  • Hunter

    Its bullshit. Have none of you watch DBGT? he acheived SS4 not god. When fighing Kid vegita why did he not use the god powers? the creator has gone senile. DBGT was set 10 years after the buu saga so where does the bottle of the got fit into this?.

    • Hunter = FRUITCAKE

      dude you’re retarded. DBGT isn’t even a part of DBZ…
      it’s not even a part of the dragon ball series -.-
