“Dragon Ball Super” Twitter Countdown: 1 Day
Published by 04 July 2015, 11:24 AM EDT

The official Twitter account for Dragon Ball Super has started a daily countdown leading up to the series’ debut 05 July 2015. With one day to go until the premiere, a series of posts sum up the excitement:


At last, tomorrow morning at 9! There’s one day until broadcast begins! Apart from some areas, you’ll be able to give card battle a try through the data broadcast! There are prizes too, so by all means, check it out in real-time! (S)

“Data broadcast” refers to the data channel that is broadcast along the program itself in Japanese digital terrestrial TV, accessible via the “d” button on the remote control. It can contain program information, interactive content such as live quizzes, and even playable games, as it will here.

The twitter account later followed up this post with a brief summary of the episode:


From 9 a.m. tomorrow, July 5th, Dragon Ball Super episode 1 will air on Fuji TV and affiliates! Some time has passed on Earth since the fierce battle with Majin Boo. Goku has passed the days farming on orders from Chi-Chi, while also sneaking off to train. Meanwhile, Mr. Satan receives an award for world peace, but…

Finally, the account delivers something that has been hinted at, but not stated outright until now: Akira Toriyama’s involvement in choosing the series title:


Come to think of it… although we haven’t used it as a topic yet, the title Dragon Ball Super is, of course, Toriyama-sensei‘s! When we saw these letters on the cover of the thick plot Sensei gave us, we got super-excited! There should be some super things waiting for us. By all means, please watch it tomorrow! (S)

Dragon Ball Super, which begins airing 05 July 2015 on Fuji TV, 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. 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 beginning back in the August 2015 issue.
