Yeah Dragonball outperformed One Piece in Japan for the last two years. One Piece has been their #1 anime for decades so the question is if Dragonball could continuing performing that well or drop over time. I don't think it will once Toriyama decides to retire. Toriyama's apparently only writing brief outlines and occasionally needs helps coming up with ideas so I don't know how long that could last.
Hmm, didn't dragon ball overtake one piece at the most popular point, or was that only when you combine all markets, both inside and outside Japan?

If One Piece isn't more popular than Dragon Ball then why did Toei do this?

Toei. did. not. postpone. Super. because. of. One. Piece.


I think this thread has served its purpose at this point. The relevant information is throughout this thread. Beyond that, bizarre interpretations of said info are propagating, and that's not beneficial to anyone.

We'll unlock this thread once there's something worth talking about again.
