We just have to see if that source "Based on the story after the Buu Arc" is trustworthy.
All the stuff about being set after Buu with character designs and plot ideas by Toriyama and a potential enemy stronger than Buu and Freeza is in Toei's release.
All right.
The hype is real. :D

Also, this means GT finally becomes non canon, right? Halleluiah today is a great day! :lol:

I wonder if they mean AFTER the Buu Arc, as in after Uub, or after the Buu Arc in the same sense as Battle of Gods and Resurrection F have been set after Buu's defeat...

Is this the 12 universe material? Can I finally have Makaio(shin)? I could have used another small tidbit of information here. xD

It would be kinda funny, and REALLY STUPID, if this series contradicts the movies xD

After RF I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt here, hopefully they do not cheap out.

Good point. I assumed it was after Uub.

I hope it is, so that we can FINALLY get more stuff about how Goku trained Uub.

If this series does well, we might also finally get a decent Remake.
Not Kai. Completely new animation that covers the whole manga (not just Z) without filler.

Seriously though, Funimation better fucking simulcast this series. It was bullshit that they couldn't do it with the first run of Kai, and while I kind of understand it with The Final Chapters due to the Japanese versus International version stuff, it has still been annoying.

...And on another note entirely, unless this takes place before Resurrection 'F', I'm not really sure how a new enemy "stronger than Freeza or Buu" is actually supposed to be a threat at this point.

One thing you should all brace yourselves for - the violence is going to be super tame. Modern Japanese censors aren't going to allow anything near what was prevalent in the 90s series.

Probably about Gods and multiverse like how BoG teased it? (wishful thinking)

You think they will do two series side by side? I guess if a new Dragon Ball series can get made that's written by Toriyama, anything is possible

I wonder if Toyotarō will be creating a manga for this, it seems obvious that he would. Let's hope so.
