Anime News Network reports on preliminary details regarding the story for Dragon Ball Super, next month’s all-new television series, which will be revealed in this weekend’s August 2015 issue of V-Jump. A complete translation of the news is as follows (skipping item number two, which simply repeats previously-revealed information about the opening and ending themes):



Super SCOOP!! #1
Dragon Ball Super is set slightly after the showdown with Majin Boo!

Dragon Ball Super is a gem of an original story, from an original draft provided by manga author Akira Toriyama-sensei! This series is a super tale that depicts what happens “afterwards” to Goku and the gang following the titanic battle with Majin Boo, and links up with the movies Battle of Gods and Revival of “F”!!



Super SCOOP!! #3
Already well-known from the movies!? For the first time, Beerus and Whis join the fray in a TV series!!

The God of Destruction Beerus and his servant Whis have already cut quite a figure in the two latest movies, and now they’re set to appear as regular cast members for this TV series! Far stronger than the likes of Freeza, Cell, or Majin Boo, Beerus will run amok in the new series!?



Super SCOOP!! #4
The illustrious main cast will remain as-is!!

Masako Nozawa-san (voice of Son Goku) and the rest of the main cast are taking part in this series too! Deeply familiar with Dragon Ball, these actors and actresses will breathe new life into Goku and the gang!!



Super SCOOP!! #5
The first episode’s synopsis is available! Goku gets a job…?!

Following Majin Boo’s defeat, peaceful days have come. When Chi-Chi orders Goku to go earn some money, Goku gets the itch to train while he works. Meanwhile, Goten heads out on an adventure with Trunks to find a gift for his soon-to-be sister-in-law Videl!?



Super SCOOP!! #6
Super high-quality gorgeous visuals! The entire series is produced with new animation!!

This new series will be broadcast entirely with new footage, like with the movies or the openings and endings for Dragon Ball Kai! An overwhelming new Dragon Ball world is revealed!!



Super SCOOP!! #7
The comic adaptation by Toyotarō-sensei starts this issue!!

Comment From Toyotarō-sensei
“Getting to see a new DB anime series every week makes me too happy! With this comicalization, I want to make my own small contribution to the excitement, so everyone please check out the manga, too!”

The issue is also set to contain the first chapter of the Dragon Ball Super manga adaptation by Toyotarō.

The August 2015 issue of V-Jump officially hits shelves in Japan 20 June 2015 and is still available for pre-order via Amazon Japan.
