Does db-super take place before the movies (BOG, ROF)?

Well the official announcement said the series takes place after the battle with kid buu. Does that mean we won't get to see any god characters?

I'd like to give an answer with some sort of depth, but the simple fact is that we just don't know yet. There are a dozen or so statements that can be interpreted in a couple of different ways and there hasn't been any clarification yet. So all I can do is suggest that you wait and see what tomorrow's Super trailer (depending on content) or the first chapter in this month's V-Jump (on the 20th) have to offer on the matter.

According to what was posted on the official Dragon Ball Super Twitter page, it seems rather likely that it's going to take place after Revival of F.
7月放送開始の新シリーズ「ドラゴンボール超」はTVアニメ初の鳥山明オリジナル原案!長い眠りから目覚めた破壊の神ビルスとの出会いや、かつて「宇宙の帝王」と恐れられたフリーザの復活に加え、更なる謎の人物も登場…?(S)

The new TV series “Dragon Ball Super” by Akira Toriyama begins in July! After meeting with the God of Destruction; Beerus, who had awakened from his sleep, and after the revival of the dreaded “Emperor of the Universe”; Freeza, a new mysterious person appears …?

Yes, but one can still argue whether that's meant to be interpreted in an in-universe manner or an out of universe one. Especially with all the other blanket statements like those about it it being set after Buu (with no other specific mentions) that are constantly confusing people and causing this topic to be brought up fairly often.

Definitely hard to tell at this point, but I sure do hope it comes after FnF.

We'll all find out in two days. Official preview up on Sunday.
"Dragon Ball once became a thing of the past to me, but after that, I got angry about the live action movie, re-wrote an entire movie script, and now I'm complaining about the quality of the new TV anime. It seems Dragon Ball has grown on me so much that I can't leave it alone." - Akira Toriyama on Dragon Ball Super

I remember when the first FnF trailer came out, I was hyped. I'm really looking forward to seeing who this new character is going to be!

Well...no.

And if it was this, it would be a very stupid decision by Toei, in terms of marketing and budget.

It would make very little sense to have the new series take place before the recent movies with new characters added. I can say with the utmost certainty that this will follow Resurrection F at the least.

I'm starting to get the feeling that the last chapter of the manga is going to be completely retconned into nonexistence, and maybe Uub as well. Would be a shame if that were the case.

Was it not said that the opponents in Super would be stronger than Freeza? That would have to mean that it takes place after the movies.

Yeah since they most likely meant Freeza in ROF and not pre-ROF Freeza. I doubt the movie will take place before Battle of Gods since we are getting a major villain this time around. I think a year after ROF and four years before 28th Tenkachi Budokai or after the 28th Tenkachi Budokai are still possible.

The EoZ shouldn't be retconned or changed as the majority of fans want Uub to be a character. I don't really see why would be any good if Toriyama decided to keep the Saiyan centrism and exclude Uub knowing about his huge potential. I think he introduced Freeza's prodigy thing to generate a reasoning for Uub to grow to SSGSS Goku's/Vegeta's level with simple training.

All the hints seem to suggest that Super takes place at least after ROF and BOG, but as fadeddreams5 said, we'll find out on Sunday.

I don't want to lose child!Pan, child!Bra, and Goten's EoZ design though. :cry: I mean, I'll deal if it happens, but I don't want it to happen.

Well there are Beerus and Whis in teaser and for some reason Goku transforms in SSJ, the normal one....But since BoG and RoF are cannon it probably takes place after it...

We don't know if Goku turning into a normal SSJ is legit what the episode is going to be like though. Don't forget they re-made Gohan powering up to Ultimate in BoG. In the trailer for BoG, Gohan actually turns into a SSJ.

Well he does work on the field and punching the ground to plant a seed in SSJ already makes no sense, so you could be right...

I heard it's taking place before rof,
"After defeating Majin Buu, life is peaceful once again. Ordered by Chi-chi to earn money, Goku works even as he wants to train even more. Meanwhile, Goten, about to become a brother-in-law to Videl, sets out on a journey with Trunks to find her a present. "
[*]Gohan still isn't married.
[*] bulma doesn't have the rof movie hairstyle
[*]No whis symbol on their cloths.
[*]Everyone resembles battle gods version.

Didn't Whis just draw the symbol as a joke while training with them?

You'd figure they would eventually switch to clean clothes rather than ones that were doodled on.
