"Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Post by Ajay » Wed Jan 23, 2019 12:42 pm

Per the front page of the site.

A spotlight on various Toei properties by WorldScreen.com appears to reveal and confirm additional episodes of the Dragon Ball Super television series from Toei Animation:

The company is also making more episodes of Dragon Ball Super, a Japanese fantasy martial arts action series in the Dragon Ball media franchise that follows Goku in the aftermath of Majin Buu’s defeat and as God of Destruction Beerus awakens.

The spotlight comes during this week’s National Association of Television Program Executives’ event in Miami. WorldScreen.com has previously reported on various international licensing agreements for the Dragon Ball franchise, such as extensive Latin American deals.

It’s so Toei to just casually announce that Super is returning.

Oddly enough I actually would like them to start with a retelling of the movie this time. I think this is our only chance to see stuff that was initially part of the three hour long script they had to shorten.

Awesome, lets hope we continue the trend of superb animation set up in the Universal Survival arc, only with good character designs to back it up this time.

I actually want a retelling of Broly. Battle of Gods felt quite sluggish at times and Resurrection 'F' was paced pretty well, so they certainly didn't need anime adaptations, but Broly felt extremely rushed, kinda like reading one of Toyotaros earlier Super chapters. While I love Broly, it could definitely benefit from having a more fleshed out anime adaptation.

That's a weird announcement and how was this unspotted for two days?

I am disappointed by this news for 1 big reason. This could make collecting Super on home release near impossible in a reasonable life time. (Dragon Ball do not become One Piece, more episodes may deter fans. Like me)

Well, here we go! Given the cat's now out of the bag, I wonder when Toei will give their official announcement. I'd suspect we'll be seeing something (perhaps a press release, a la how Super was announced last time) before the end of January, especially if the speculation that the series will resume in April ends up being accurate.

Here’s round two. Let’s hope it has a better start than super originally did . :thumbup:

I expect a true announcement in a few days, probably during the FighterZ tournament as they said there will be an announcement to please all DB fans there.
Now all that’s left is to see if it will indeed happen in April. I’m quite sure it will, because if the rumours of a pre-production happening in October are true, then it would have 6 months and possibly even more of pre-production, which are enough to ensure the show has an healthy schedule unlike Super.
It seems like this will still be called Super: I wonder if they will add a subtitle, as they did for Kai, or if they will make a new logo, like the one featured in the movie (why was that even there?). I would certainly hope they will try to differentiate it a little from the first Super, especially if we consider this will most likely keep the whole aesthetic and designs for Broly as they certainly won’t be trashing the incredibly well-received, animation friendly designs from Shintani who was handpicked by Toriyama, and who worked for months on those designs with direct feedback from Toriyama himself.
I currently doubt they will want to retell Broly, as the movie is way too recent and falls under the Super’s name and they probably wouldn’t want to risk another poor reception from the fans from yet another movie retelling.
I also don’t think the Galactic Prisoner Arc from the manga will be animated because I feel like with Toyotaro being the writer of it, he probably hasn’t finalised the whole story yet and Toriyama still has lots of stories to tell, so I would hope he has already written a new one for the new Super.

"not true at this moment"
So this info wasn't supposed to come out until Toei put out an official press release.

Dragon Ball Super 2: Electric Boogaloo

Here's hoping we pick up with a recap that touches on the Broly movie and end of the ToP, and we pick up with how the Manga did with the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc. Very excited!

I am actually surprised they responded to this. And this fast. I was thinking they'd just let the thing run its course through social media and then just make the announcement however they planned. This kinda makes me think the official announcement is a long way away (at least a couple of months)
