Wew, looks like Super's break will be longer than expected.

Or maybe, this way they won't have to care about canon rules anymore and do whatever they like. Which also means, that GT is back, too. 8)

This is bad.


This is really really bad.


At least Super didn't try to draw attention to the fact it was complete cashgrab by actually having a some original story input, but basing an anime of a freaking video game? They're insane.

I'm actually surprised it's taken this long for that game to get an anime adaptation.


This could be cool? IF anything, it's the right way to take franchise since canon-DB, as far as I'm concerned, is fucking done (won't stop em milking that cow again and again).

I've never played any of the games, but the intros always looked kind of cool and it can be neat to see a show go batshit crazy on fanservice.

I mean, it certainly was a cashgrab.



And not a great one at that. At least Heroes is generally honest about just going fuck it with everything. "YA WANNA SEE GOHAN GO SSJ4?!! FUCK IT, WE'LL GIVE YOU GOHAN SSJ4!!!"

Happened to less popular series. I'm pretty sure they were eager to do it as soon as DBS ended, seeing how well Heroes sells.

I couldn't be any more happier about this, Bravo Toei :clap:

It's all Jiren's fault for being too strong as why we get this instead of more Super. No one left to fight. :)


At least this show will fit well with some of the stupidness from Super.

Oh I expect this to be some dumb, dumb shit. But considering the fact that, presumably, it's all non-canon stuff, this could be fun.

Just get writers who actually give a shit about the franchise and are willing to play around the DB world sandbox, and we could get something entertaining from this.


Just don't let this be another Super. Please.

This does sound very bad if we're looking at it as the game being turned into an anime but that may not be the case. They could just be taking the story arcs they made (hell's gate and the current Fu story) and work them into where Super left off.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

Will the fandom be able to handle seeing SSJ4 Goku vs SSB Goku? :lol:

Nah, it's their best chance to bring back Broly, Gogeta and SSJ4s back to the TV again. They won't waste it.

I want a link to an official statement.

It's not that I don't trust YounkouProd but I'd be more at ease with an official source/statement if possible.

Even if they do that, the show will be story based so things will unfold in a normal sequence, you most likely won't see random things like Kid Gohan from the fight against Raditz showing up.

If you thought Super split the fans up, wait till things thing gets an official announcement. I do hope everyone keeps a cool head and waits until we know more before jumping the gun either way. This could be really good or complete merchandise trash but we'll have to wait and see.

Maybe they're doing this cause Super isn't coming back as Toriyama may want to stick to movies moving forward.

It's most likely from V-Jump, it came out yesterday/today, we'll get a translation tommorow probably

If the story will be also set in Beat's Arcade World (and why wouldn't it, it's free advertisment), then there are no limits to which characters can appear.

One Issue I had with Super was the lack of meaningful content for the ammount of episodes we got, something I highly doubt this show (if true) will suffer from. With the ability to bring in elements from the entire DB lore, this should be the most heavy DB show when it comes to content.

I thought of this, and this is literally the worst thing Toei could possibly do.



Which probably means they'll do it.

It'll probably be a Yu-Gi-Oh type of thing
