My only point really is that following Toyo's manga would be a terrible idea and that whatever chance there is of the current manga arc showing up in the anime, it's likely not "we adapt Toyo's manga every week like we did with Toriyama because that made Z so fun to watch".
Gotcha. Pretty much agree.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.

Fingers crossed Shintani and Nagamine stick around.
I can see Shintani staying but Nagamine on Twitter said that he may not come back to Dragon Ball.
Whaaa? Well that sucks he directed the hell out of Broly! That would be very disappointing.
It’s not official but he did say on Twitter that he wants to move on from having the last two years being hugely Dragon Ball production stuff.

I saw that, I do hope he comes back at some point. I hear Mr. Nakamura is likely to return, as the last work he was credited with was a One Piece episode which aired back in October.
Rumours are he then left to lead pre-production on the new Series of Super.

Dragonball just doesn't have the same excitement it once had in my opinion. Dragonball used to be a getaway from real life problems that I faced over the years, but not anymore and that makes me sad. Maybe I'm finally outgrowing the story, I don't know definitively.

The predictible plot maybe? Bad guy comes and the heroes beat him, or a tournament. Sure this franchise always had those plotlines but there was something exciting about the Z fighters facing a life or death fight from a threat from out of space for the first time, or finding out about an intergalactic tyrant who sells planets to the highest bidder being introduced, or a threat from the future. Maybe I'm being nostalgic but I know there is some element of truth to this. Goku went from a kid who only knew of Earth, did not know his origins and humans being able to challenge him in combat, to this God level fighter who is known throughout the multiverse. Where does he go from here?

I'm looking forward to new announcements and hopefully the new Anime returns, but honestly I won't be as hyped for it as I once was. I'll always follow it though.
Did you watch the new movie because I think it was a great film even though you may have not been hyped since Super ended?
I have seen it in theaters yes. I enjoyed the film. The animation was too notch.

We have known this since December but I still hope that Nagamine comes back to direct an episode or so in the future.

Thanks.

I'm actually looking forward to Dragonball project Z. Apparently it's an RPG game and it's open world.

So, do we have a date for Super return? Or is this still speculation?

It's basically sitting in limbo right now. An Italian dub VA confirmed it's coming & Toei's shown off the concepts to investors, so we're just waiting on an official announcement now.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.
TFS getting shafted from the Kai TFC dub is a great travesty.
GT sucks, get over it if you disagree.
We'll see what happens to Vic.
Um...Listen to Waterparks.
That is all.

I wanted to speak about one of the three problem I have with Dragon Ball the way the show feel disjointed so the continuity problem.

In fact about the continuity problems between the Dragon Ball Super arcs, a good way to improve DBS would have been to reintroduce the Tarble OVA after Battle of Gods for Abo and Cado linking that directly with the Freezer Arc Return where we would have saw Tagoma, Shisami and Sorbet ploting the revival of Frieza also Abo & Cado would have been the distraction for their troops to gather the Dragon Balls.

Then for the connection between F's return arch and Champa's arc the good twist would have been to leave the Earth destroyed and have Namekians Dragon Ball be used to undo Kibito and Shin fusion. By doing so the Super Dragon Balls would have been necessary to have a motivation for our Z-warrior.

Speaking of the next Arc why not make sure that Champa and Beerus have as a tournament manager a third universe here we would have the Universe 10 to monitor the tournament with Gowasu and Zamasu as well as the GoD and his angel. That way with Zamasu around this tournament would have trigger the next arc with Mirai Trunks.

Then The ToP and DBS Broly flow naturally after those five narrative arc as well as Moro I think.

And voila.

How you all would have feel if the overall narrative was like that ?

My first and second problem are Goku in some way and the SFX use in this new era Dragon Ball.

I agree. The dbs arcs feel too disconnected. Its like one arc happens. Then after some filler, you get an episode that happens a random ammount of time after that just jumps into something completely new I loved how the Saiyan Saga flowed into the Namek saga and the Namek saga into the Cell Saga. The Buu Saga being disconnected makes sense since the end of the Cell saga changed the status quo by killing off Goku for good AND the Buu Saga started with a major timeskip so it would make sense to be disconnected.

In DBS, the only arcs that connected were the U6 v U7 arc and the T.o.P arc. Otherwise, there was no real connect or overlap between arcs. I hope that changes.
I called it that Gogeta, Bardock, and something Broly related would be in the movie before it was even announced that it was a Broly movie. 8)

For DBS de only arcs that get connected to each others are Beerus arc, U6 vs U7 arc and the T.o.P. arc. But overall do you like my proposal ?

Beerus leading to Abo & Cado leading to Freezer leading to U6 vs U7 leading to Gattai Zamasu leading to Tournament of Power leading to DBS Broly leading to Moro.

Long story, short, I approve. Too bad Toriyama doesn’t plan ahead like that.

It's because Akira Toriyama is more a guy who improvise than plan unlike Eiichiro Oda.

First one happened months ago. It sounds like they genuinely didn't plan on the series continuing after the ToP and decided that they were actually going to take their damn time working on it for a while before rushing it to release.

Toei showing off concepts to investors also suggests they didn't intend on an immediate continuation; they were probably still brainstorming ideas for quite some time.
If this is the case, I wouldn't be surprised if a new season of Dragon Ball Super is announced to coincide with the original announcement (April 28th, 2015, I believe it was?), with the exception that it's going to start airing in autumn rather than summer.

It's been quite a time since the last I visited this thread and wow I expected to read thousand of pages regarding Super "return".

As a time after I heard from some friends that the anime might return in July, is that really true or we still waiting for an actual confirmation?

The second half of April was talked about earlier in the thread as when an official announcement might happen.

Personally I think the lack of new/recent posts in this thread is because of all the leaks leaked none of them are about the story. Once even general info about the next story arc is revealed or leaked then I expect this thread to really get going again.
