Why are you hoping that?
I feel bad for the cast since they're old now and DB most of the times consists of shouting, I kinda feel bad hearing Nozawa san shout so much despite her age....

Nosawa has said that she wants to be Goku untill she passes away.

Oh my god. Oh my god. OH. MY. GOD.

I...I'm at a total loss for words. I absolutely cannot believe this is happening. ~18 years has it been?!

I can't wait to find out what staff are involved. This is crazy.

The site is going to explode today.

A congratulations to the fanbase is in order :D

Who'd have thought we'd be getting another anime series?
Granted there had been a lot of speculation about the movies potentially opening the door for a new series, but that it would actually happen?
Unfuckingbelievable!
I think GT is going to be completely disregarded and we'll finally have some adventures in the other universes. I wonder, if Toriyama is still going to have it take place before Uub. We are going to end up with a lot of material between the Buu Arc and Uub, if that happens.

For me this is the first time I'll be experiencing an on-going DB series, so that's going to be interesting.

Unfortunately.

Myself, as well. I would have never bet on this happening.
Needless to say, this is huge news. I haven't been this excited about the series since I was a child.

Probably after. To what degree is unknown.

Read the English PR PDF. It says "Following the recent events of the hit feature film..." The English PR could be wrong, though. But after the popularity of the movie, it seems like they'd try to connect it to the TV series for disc sales, especially since the TV series is airing so soon.

I can't believe this! I did suspect it would be happening after learning about the 12 Universes in BoG, but after FnF, I doubted it was gonna happen and thought they would have kept going with movies. But this is amazing!
James Teal (Animerica 1996) wrote:When you think about it, there are a number of similarities between the Chinese-inspired Son Goku and that most American of superhero icons, Superman. Both are aliens sent to Earth shortly after birth to escape the destruction of their homeworlds; both possess super-strength, flight, super-speed, heightened senses and the ability to cast energy blasts. But the crucial difference between them lies not only in how they view the world, but in how the world views them.

Superman is, and always has been, a symbol for truth, justice, and upstanding moral fortitude–a role model and leader as much as a fighter. The more down-to-earth Goku has no illusions about being responsible for maintaining social order, or for setting some kind of moral example for the entire world. Goku is simply a martial artist who’s devoted his life toward perfecting his fighting skills and other abilities. Though never shy about risking his life to save either one person or the entire world, he just doesn’t believe that the balance of the world rests in any way on his shoulders, and he has no need to shape any part of it in his image. Goku is an idealist, and believes that there is some good in everyone, but he is unconcerned with the big picture of the world…unless it has to do with some kind of fight. Politics, society, law and order don’t have much bearing on his life, but he’s a man who knows right from wrong.

I really doubt that is supposed to imply, when the story is set. That is more like saying "there was this hit movie and after that we'll be airing this new series"

They talk about the story in the next paragraph:
"Reuniting the franchise's iconic characters, Dragon Ball Super will follow the aftermath of Goku's fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain Earth's fragile Peace."

Please tell me this connects to the movies? You can't bring in two canon movies and then contradict both with an new anime series.

All aboard the hype train!!
I can't say that I didn't see this coming though. The introduction of parallel universes was a red flag for me that something was coming.
GT can now be set in a separate universe because of that. Plus, Dragon Ball is probably TOEI's biggest cash cow.
Still, my hype levels are over 9000.
