Re: 2018 Dragon Ball Heroes Promotional Anime Announced

DBH's Universe Survival and Prison Planet arcs that will be made into an PR Anime. The first episode's pre-screening will take place on July 1 at Ion Lake Town. And although it's a PR Anime they'll mash a few episodes together in order to extend its length.
I wanted to snag first post on this inevitable 1,000-page thread to note that we are truly in hell.
Ah, thread's been merged with the one in the Super section, so you no longer have first post here.
That's a shame.

If this is a series or even just a special I hope that Tomioka Atsuhiro is the series kousei. His work on Dragon Ball Super was great and if this series will be about Beet playing a game then he'll definitely be a great fit!

The other thread existed first and had far more replies, so I couldn't just close it. Unfortunately, at least with mod level tools, they automatically merge posts chronologically. There was no way to give him first post without deleting everything prior to his.

Trying to fit this into Super's timeline is an awful idea. Theyll have much more freedom if they just go wild with it as a spin off

Question. Did the scan say we’d cover the Universe Survival Arc and Prison Planet Arc or did it just say Universe Mission: Prison Planet Arc?
I called it that Gogeta, Bardock, and something Broly related would be in the movie before it was even announced that it was a Broly movie. 8)

Pretty sure just the Prison Planet arc. But for this to make sense to general audiences, some further clarification will need to be made about that world.

Not really. This is probably just intended for japanese audiences. We’ll probably go back to how Super was before it was added to Crunchyroll. The episodes will air in japan and by the next day, there will be illegal copies of the episode streamed on the internet with our boy herms or ken doing the translations for the subtitles.

Just because there's every chance it may not be officially released outside of Japan, doesn't mean that Toei won't cater for the casual audience.

Super's anime proved that.

My guess is that this anime will have an episode number equal to that of the number of chapters in the manga for the Prison Planet Saga (PPS) or since the PPS is under SDBH’S Universe Missions, the number of episodes could equal the number of Universe Missions we get for the PPS.

Each episode would range from 7 to 15 minutes. And the episodes will either be released weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly (but if its monthly, we should be getting some 24 minute episodes).

I rather if we get a normal run time for these episodes than just 7 minutes.

24-minute-long episodes is a must (actually, the more Heroes the better, or in this case, the longer). With opening and ending themes if possible too. Because all Heroes songs are amazing, so naturally the openings and endings wouldn't disappoint either (and we would get more animation, screenshots and etc).

This is a PR anime. Not a TV anime. Its likely that the episodes will be shorter than the normal tv anime

I actually can’t find any pr anime when i look up PR anime on google. Do you know where i can find some PR anime?

Just off the top of my head, the semi-recent '[ur=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ai_Tenchi_Muyo!l]Ai Tenchi Muyo![/url]' series would likely count. It was sponsored by Takahashi, Okayama in Japan, primarily to promote tourism for the city (though it was also made as the first Tenchi title in a while at the time too). It lasted 60 episodes, but 10 of those are recaps, and regardless, all of them are in the five minute range.

So even as a PR anime, we could end up getting a good handful of material, but especially if it's going to be a web thing rather than a TV airing, I wouldn't expect anything too grandiose in terms of run time per installment, at least is my guess.

Well, Dragon Ball Super manga is also a promotional material and it has more pages than Toriyama's manga back when it was being serialized. Maybe we get something more like a normal run eventually.

It was. You should read Yonku Productions tweet about this.
Why should I trust them?
You could also read Herms's tweets who is a member of the Kanzenshuu team.

That was his own opinion i think because he saw that it's apparently supposed to be a promotional anime, even though, as others have pointed out, Pokemon is also a promotional anime and it's been around for 20+ years.

Has anybody actually bothered to translate the announcement word for word? That would clear up some confusion. Has anybody asked Herms?
Herms has also translated it and said the exact same thing.

I wonder if Yamamuro will on the Heroes PR anime? I think he should considering he is not on the Super movie and needs something to do.
