We are less than a week away from Dragon Ball Super…! Even with the various new productions over the last decade, nothing comes close to fandom’s excitement over this new TV series. Whereas with a movie we know everything about it within an hour or two of watching it, with a TV series it’s a week-to-week guessing game. What will happen next?! This is our last episode before the new series begins, and our hype cannot possibly be contained!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0383! VegettoEX and Hujio discuss “Dragon Ball Super” as we sit less than a week out from its debut. Where in the timeline will it take place, and how will this new story affect the other recent productions? Will “Battle of Gods” still “happen” in the overall story? Tons of news and thoughts from you wrap up the show!

This week’s issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump (2015 #31), released today in Japan, contains a small promotional section dedicated to the first episode of Dragon Ball Super, which is set to debut in mere days on 05 July 2015.

The page unveils the first episode’s title, along with a brief synopsis, setting the time frame of the series as six months following the battle with Majin Buu (which would place it in November of Age 774 going with the timeline established up to this point):

第1話「平和の報酬1億ゼニーは誰の手に!?」

平和になった地球で悟空があ金を稼ぐ!?
魔人ブウとの激闘から半年。平和な時が流れる地球で、悟空はチチの言いつけで荒れ地を耕す仕事をしながら隙を見つけて修業する日々をおくっていた。その一方、結婚したての悟飯とビーデルは幸せな日々を過ごすが…!?


Episode #1, “Who Will the 100 Million Zenny Peace Reward Go To…?!”

With the Earth at peace, Goku earns money?!
Six months after the fierce battle with Majin Buu. While the days pass peacefully, Goku works tilling the soil like Chi-Chi had ordered him, while still finding time to train. Meanwhile, newly-weds Gohan and Videl are living happily, but…?!

This new synopsis notes that Gohan and Videl are newly weds, which contradicts the initial plot unveiled in the August 2015 issue of V-Jump, where Videl is referred to as Goten’s “soon-to-be sister-in-law”, implying the two were not yet married. This would seem to help confirm that Gohan and Videl were indeed married by the time Battle of Gods rolls around, as the film occurs four years (Age 778) after the battle with Majin Buu (Age 774).

The page also includes a small section covering what Goten and Trunks will be up to this week, lending to the intriguing possibility of the two having weekly side-adventures non-critical to the series’ main overarching plot:

今週の悟天&トランクス — 結婚祝いに選んだのは!?
悟飯に結婚祝いを贈ろうとする悟天と、その相談を受けたトランクス!ふたりの選んだ品は!?


Goten & Trunks This Week: What do they pick for a wedding gift?!
Goten wants to give Gohan a wedding present, and Trunks offers his advice! What item do they end up picking?!

The official Twitter account for Dragon Ball Super has started a daily countdown leading up to the series’ debut 05 July 2015. Today’s entry, with six days to go until the premiere, teases a shot from the ending theme song:

「ドラゴンボール超」放送開始の7月5日まであと6日!今日はとっておきの1枚。エンディングのラストカット!!!「これ、出していいの?」と何回も確認しちゃいましたー。(S)


There are 6 days until the Dragon Ball Super broadcast begins on July 5th! Here’s the picture we’ve been saving for today. The ending’s last cut!!! We made sure [with the staff] a bunch of times: “Is it really OK to put this out there?” (S)

Good Morning America will provide the series’ ending theme, “Hello Hello Hello” (ハローハローハロー), which will see a CD single release in Japan 12 August 2015. Good Morning America contributed the song “Dear Zarathustra” as the first closing theme to the Majin Buu arc of Dragon Ball Kai for its Japanese broadcast (and third closing theme overall).

The story for Revival of “F”, which opened nationwide in Japan 18 April 2015 in 2D and IMAX 3D, was crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama, who stated he wrote it, “…as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization,” and that while it would, “…of course be a continuation of the previous Battle of Gods,” he has also, “…deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal.” Tadayoshi Yamamuro, who worked for many years as character designer and animation supervisor on the Dragon Ball franchise, served as the film’s director and animation supervisor. Norihito Sumitomo has returned from Battle of Gods and the Majin Buu arc of Dragon Ball Kai for musical composition duties. Momoiro Clover Z contributed “Vow of ‘Z'” as the film’s main theme alongside Maximum the Hormone, whose “F” is used during the film.

The film has been announced for distribution in 74 countries.

In addition to a few new clips, the preview trailer showcases Beerus and Whis interacting with two new characters: Champa, and an as-of-yet unidentified new character.
