As revealed in this year’s 28th Weekly Shonen Jump; one month from today ‘Dragon Ball Super’ will be airing its first episode in Japan.
Quote from Anime News Network:
Dragon Ball Super will premiere on Fuji TV and other channels on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. This will be the first new Dragon Ball television series since Dragon Ball GT, which aired from 1996 to 1997. The story of the anime is set a few years after the defeat of Majin Buu, when the Earth has become peaceful once again.
Toriyama is credited as the original creator, as well as for “original story & character concepts.” Toei Animation‘s Kimitoshi Chioka (Hakaba Kitarō, Kamisama Kazoku) is the series director, and Naoko Sagawa (Yomiko Advertising, Inc.) and Atsushi Kido (Toei Animation) join Osamu Nozaki as producers. Kido entered Toei just as the company was animating the Dragon Ball Z anime’s Frieza arc. Masako Nozawa, the voice of Goku, Gohan, and Goten, is returning for the series.
A new film taking place after the Majin Buu Saga, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, premiered in Japan in April. The film will eventually screen in 74 countries worldwide. Funimationhosted the North American premiere of the film on April 11 in Los Angeles. The company plans to release the film in more theaters with an English dub this summer.
