New Dragon Ball series.

Post by TheDevilsCorpse » Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:06 am

Well, it seems we've moved past AF and on to Hoshi. lol Random people on forums have started talking about Dragon Ball Hoshi, a new series supposedly coming out soon in both manga and anime format. Wikipedia has been edited with this information, without a source. I suppose that's the downside to an encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Heres's the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Bal ... Ball_Hoshi And here is the text incase it gets removed:
Akira Toriyama is rumor to be making a new Dragon Ball series alongside mangaka Naho Ooishi, The creator of the 2008 Dragon Ball Z special "Yo! son goku and friends return". called, Dragon Ball Hoshi. Ooishi will be making a manga that continues the Z Manga past the Buu saga. It will have a newly designed Super Saiyan 4, and even a Super Saiyan 5. Akira Toriyama will be assisting her and backing off. The events in japan (earthquake, tsunami) slowed this down now Toriyama is taking care of that. It's rumor to be out later this year or early 2012.
Ah good times, cant wait to see how this plays out. xD Maybe next year Mike can really help Hoshi get its kick-start the same as he did for AF.

What does "Hoshi" even mean? Assuming it's not gibberish.

From what I gather, it means "star". That's of course assuming that it isn't one of those Japanese words with multiple meanings and you need to know which specific kanji are used.

Okay TheDevilsCorpse.
Either way this doesn't look legit in the least. Probably some guy trolling, but I could be wrong, even though I doubt it. On which other forums has this been talked about?

I dunno, I ran the title through Google and got a couple of different forums after a couple of pages. I know it was listed on DB Wikia's forum on the first page (go figure). Anyway, it isn't like I expect this to be real. I make clear references to it being similar to AF, just more modern, but I would be interested if something did come of it. I simply posted this so some people can have a laugh or two and keep up with what is trending in the "magical world of make-believe" for the fandom.

Oh yeah, I realized that, when you made a reference to the AF prank.

That Toriyama, he's totally a superhero. :P

(Also, you might want to change the topic title to something that doesn't suggest there's really a new series. :P)

Nah, its advertising 101: Draw people in by any means necessary...even if you have to mislead them a little. =P

I might half believe this if they didn't announce that there would be an anime alongside it. If DragonBall Hoshi even exists, they wouldn't announce an anime right off the bat.

I kind of like the idea of Toriyama working with Ooishi. If Hoshi did exist, those two should be the ones to start it.

The word "hoshi" is a generic space object in Japanese (a star or a planet).

"Dragon Ball: Generic Space Object" sounds like a good name for a spin-off set entirely on Namek.

All other obvious bullshit aside, I doubt Toriyama would even change Super Saiyan 4 anyway, considering he's stated that he really likes the design.

And "hoshii" means "to want"... See the resemblance?

"Hoshi" can also mean "wish," as in "Dragon Ball Wish [That This B.S. Was Real]."

Well, it's already been removed from Wikipedia. I thought about doing that last night, or at least adding a citation request...but couldn't be bothered. Anyway, this...

I'm not going to believe that a new DB series will be released until I see solid proof.

Until then, Shenanigans.

Probably fake. The fact that One Piece and Pretty Cure are Toei's big anime money-makers along with pointing out how Kai was doing so poorly that it died an early death aside; if there really was going to be a new DB series, we'd read about it on Japanese sites first.

Also, that Wiki page doesn't list any sources for this "Hoshi" series. In order to verify anything when it comes to news, you need to have a legitimate source and be able to reference to it.
