Published by 31 May 2015, 9:37 AM EDT

Staff member Hikari wrote on the composer’s official blog this week that Norihito Sumitomo will return to musical composition duties for the upcoming Dragon Ball Super TV series.

Sumitomo began with Dragon Ball in 2013 with the score to the theatrical film Battle of Gods. He returned for the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai in 2014 following the removal of Kenji Yamamoto’s music, and again for the 2015 film Revival of “F”.

Back in February, staff member Hikari provided an extensive blog post documenting the recording session for the Revival of “F” musical score.

Dragon Ball Super is the first all-new TV series for the franchise in 18 years. The story and characters will be developed by original manga author Akira Toriyama, will star veteran voice actress Masako Nozawa, and will be directed by Kimitoshi Chioka. While an exact start date has not yet been officially unveiled, it is likely that Super will begin its broadcast run starting 05 July 2015, taking over the Dragon Ball Kai time slot on Fuji TV. The series will, “…follow the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Boo, as he attempts to maintain earth’s fragile peace.”A manga adaptation from “Toyotarō” will run each month in V-Jump starting in June.
