Totally called it if that's really the case, and I hope so. I don't think it's in Toyotaro's best interest to cover Broly if Toriyama himself wrote the story in its near-entirety. Hopefully it gets a passing mention though.

You're right that it's not a new form (Beerus even insinuates that it's just SSB with a different aura) but that doesn't exactly mean that the associated boost/aura is temporary; both Vegeta and Whis mention that the state represents an evolution of his power.

Would that render the "completed" Super Saiyan Blue obsolete? Well... yeah, it probably would. I wasn't a fan of it either, and as I've said previously, I think its inclusion is unnecessary in a manga that was already very specific about Blue's mechanics.

Still, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't uncannily similar to the aura shown in the film.

This sounds exciting. I wonder if the upcoming novel by Toriyama will give us more insight into this new arc. Toyotaro did say a long time ago in an interview that in the future, he'd be ahead of the anime rather than the way it is now:

Oof, I hope this means the comic doesn't skip over the Broli arc like it did the Golden Freeza arc. Maybe this one will take place before the Broli arc?

According to Herms, this new story takes place after the Broly movie. So I suppose this is kind of a continuation, despite being said as an '' original story ''? I believe it is possible that this story has supervision of Toriyama, after all will continue the events of the film

Maybe the anime also follows this story

If the story arc starting next chapter is supposed to be the new story from Toriyama post-Broly I think I'll pass and wait for the anime to catch up. If it's Toyotaro's own little thing I might check out the manga again, just to give him one more chance and see if with some more freedom he can finally put out something worthwhile.

I think that's what the implications of this are. Toyotaro will probably skip over the Broly story and maybe briefly summarize it at some point or something along those lines. (Similar to what he did with RoF) I don't know how else he could have something post-Broly this soon.

I really don't like what this means for the anime. If the manga is going ahead and going past Broly, the anime would be really far behind if they were to do a Broly retelling. I doubt they would want to be that far behind so I would imagine they wouldn't do a retelling but I really want one!

Didn't Toriyama say that Toyotaro was going to cover the Broly film in the manga? Did he lie or was he misinformed?

He never said that. People merely inferred it based on his statement that the manga would show something different than the anime and movie, but that doesn't directly communicate that there were ever any plans to adapt the film's story in the manga.

So, Super DB Heroes? :|

Ehhh...I'm kinda soured on that. I guess it could be ok as long as they don't go DBH all over it.

Retooling Brolli is one thing, making everything ever canon will be super convoluted.

Well this is all very peculiar. I certainly wasn't expecting to see Grand Supreme Kai again. :shock:

I'm just glad its not a Sadala arc. I really hope that arc is something Toriyama changed his mind on from back in 2016.

I built up so many expectations for Planet Salad back in 2016 I think I'd be ok if it was a dropped arc because there's no way my highest hopes for the arc would come true.

Could this arc be related to this new character from the Switch game ?

Where are people getting Dragon Ball Heroes from this? There is nothing about Dragon Ball Heroes mentioned.

The Galactic Patrol is the organization Jaco is part of and the prisoner can be anyone.

The real mystery is that is the Kai, Buu absorbed. I am intreresting to see how he is involved. Unless it is just a flashback explaining how he was involved with the so named prisoner.

Dang, so it does take place after the Broli arc. At the very least, I hope this means the Broli arc will be recreated in the next series. I'm also hoping looking forward to seeing how this arc pans out since it'll come out before any animated adaption.

Check the post above yours. The new Heroes game will introduce a new Galactic Patrol guy.

This could mean that the manga would be WAY ahead of the anime if they do a retelling, and I don't know if that is something that Toei wants.

I wouldn't get your hopes up. I'm going to keep my expectations extremely low for anything that Toyotaro puts together whether it be assisted by Toriyama or otherwise.

It wouldn't be the first time.
