DB made 14,5 billion yen for Toei last fiscal year, in comparsion - One Piece made "only" 8,5 billion yen :D

Dragon Ball is still king until they go on another 10 year break.

I remember before BOG people were saying DB was over rated and could never survive in today's anime world, I wonder what they think about this. :lol:

Which people you mean not from this fandom right? Could not believe they would say such harsh words to the series they like.

I read that One Piece (manga) profit is way bigger than DB (manga), is that right?

The internet in general but I doubt they were fans to begin with. You won't find them now. :lol:

talking about manga , I believe one piece sells 10-20 times more than dragon ball , that’s right
What’s first , the chicken or the egg?
Manga is the egg and anime is the chicken , you choose what’s first

DB doesn't have a weekly manga by Toriyama so it's not a fair comparison as DB's manga is monthly by Toyotaro.

You can still find them. I did, and most of the time it's by accident. When it comes to general discussions, most would claim that DBS isn't really worth your time unless you are really into the franchise and that even then you might not like it - this coming from people who have watched the show and after DBS concluded.

It's true that DBS has picke up a lot in the last year, but I wouldn't say it managed to win everyone over. I'd say FighterZ and movie info have ensured most of the positivism within the fandom.

I can only see the merch sales increasing next fiscal year, despite no show on the air this summer will continue to benefit from the immense Ultra Instinct Goku hype as that dies down towards the end of the year we get "filler" releases before the big movie in December. Now if they can hit the movie month harder then they did BoG/"F" they should make mint (on current evidence it looks like they might).
