On 12 October 2023, Toei Animation officially announced at New York Comic Con that production was underway on an all-new TV series for the Dragon Ball franchise — Dragon Ball Daima — which is slated for a Fall 2024 debut. The series’ story and characters are being developed by original manga author Akira Toriyama. Yoshitaka Yashima and Aya Komaki were brought on-board to direct, while veteran animator Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru is set to return as character designer. A teaser trailer was released alongside the announcement at the convention’s “Dragon Ball Special Panel” moderated by Monica Rial (English voice of Bulma).

In addition to the teaser trailer, franchise executive producer Akio Iyoku shared a written message from Akira Toriyama:

Hello. I’m Akira Toriyama.

I’m currently working on a new Dragon Ball. The Title is “Dragon Ball DAIMA”.

“DAIMA” is a made-up term, which in Japanese characters would be “大魔” or in English would be something like “Evil.”

Due to a conspiracy, Goku and his friends are turned small. In order to fix things, they’ll head off to a new world! It’s a grand adventure with intense action in an unknown and mysterious world.

Since Goku has to make up for his petite size, he uses his Nyoibo (Power Pole) to fight, something not seen in a long time.

I came up with the story and settings, as well as a lot of the designs. I’m actually putting a lot more into this than usual!

Things will unfold that close in on the mysteries of the Dragon Ball world. Hope you enjoy these different-from-usual battles that are cute and powerful!!
