I'm so happy that they went to this routine we could have spin off about Universe 6, Pride Trooper, Time Patrol Trunks and The Kamikaze Fireball. This is good news.

You agreed to a certain set of rules (twice) before joining.

Spouting baseless, antagonistic nonsense does not live up to these guidelines. If you do not agree with this, you do not have to post here.

It's not baseless as some fans obviously agree with that mindset, Karl Marx of Dragon Ball. So, you should stop trying to deny because that is evidently a thing.

I'm just gonna try to redirect and refocus things before we get out of hand.

I'm liking this news. More organized planning efforts are always good to see for a series like DB.

Dragon Ball's not dormant. We're still getting games announced on a regular basis and DB Heroes is still big in Japan, as far as I'm aware. There's almost certainly potential for another series (and I'm honestly surprised Super isn't continuing considering how obsessed everyone is with it), plus the series stood alone fine in the period without new media introduced regularly.

Dragon Ball has been becoming increasingly comparable to Star Wars. Despite the franchises’ dormancy, it retained its popularity, and its global stature is just now becoming obvious.

I just hope this means they don’t overly milk it on the animation side of things. I want more Dragon Ball indefinitely, but there is that risk if they get too ambitious.
I think with the right planning and people in charge, it can work. I love Dragon Ball and want nothing but the best for it. I just hope it will lead to great stories being told in the future.

A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.
