The official Dragon Ball Super website has updated with a comment from Masako Nozawa (Son Goku, et al.) celebrating the series’ upcoming 100th episode milestone:
We hit 100 episodes in the blink of an eye! I was shocked when I heard about it! At this rate, we’ll probably reach 200 episodes in another eye-blink! Lately I’ve been receiving messages at my house from fans almost daily; it makes me so happy. Even when I’m out walking, people often tell me, “I watch the show each week” or “It’s so interesting”. My goal is for Dragon Ball Super to reach 700 episodes (7 for the number of Dragon Balls), so all you fans, please keep cheering me on.
By the official website’s count of 153 Dragon Ball television episodes, 291 Dragon Ball Z television episodes and two specials, 64 Dragon Ball GT television episodes and one special, 159 Dragon Ball Kai television episodes, and now 100 Dragon Ball Super television episodes, the series is up to 770 individual episodes aired.
Toshio Furukawa (Piccolo) took to Twitter with a doodle and brief comment of his own regarding the milestone:
Super‘s 100th episode is tomorrow! That’s fast! Super fast!
The Dragon Ball Super television series airs Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. on Fuji TV in Japan. The series now receives weekly simulcast streams on services such as Crunchyroll and Daisuki.
