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).
Top releases of each month to look forward too:
September: DBS Son Goku FES!! Stage 8 (sculpted by Hiroyuki Nakazawa) PROTOTYPE FINAL VERSION
October: DBS WCD Vol.2: Goku vs Jiren, #17 & Super Shenron (assumed sculpted by Hiroyuki Nakazawa)
November: DBGT Kamehameha x10 Son Goku (sculpted by Satoshi Suzuki)
December: DBS Movie Ichiban Kuji Prize A Super Saiyan Broly Full Power, Prize D SSGSS Son Goku (sculptors currently unknown)
Ultimate Soldier I Anger Broly (assumed sculpted by Hiroyuki Nakazawa)

I have no idea. Probably the same person who designed the other covers.

I really hatebtye shading in these, along with these stupid highlights. They's re both just put there at random. Like the rest though, it's detailed enough, even though I prefer other artstyles

Just google Dragon ball Super dvds. There are 44 of them with these 2 being the last.

You could go through this account but it'll take you awhile so it's easier to google them.

To say that Dragon Ball Super only ended a few months ago and we have these games still going and a movie on the way, this really surprises me.

Activity has plummeted. It's at its lowest now since 2006.
