That's what I'm getting from Google Translate. Is this what they were planning to announce on Piccolo Day? :think: There are articles about it all over Google. Give us a second...

Oh no. Oh no. Oh no. Oh no. Oh yes.

Story and character ideas will be done by Toriyama Akira. He's already submitted a plot to the producer, and an enemy "even stronger than Buu and Freeza may appear."

The story takes place after the Majin Buu arc.

It's real. Hold on to your panties.

If it's really a new anime or any kind of new animation I will be very happy. Get ready because a storm is coming.

Here's Famistu's report on it. Doesn't look like it says anything new:
http://www.famitsu.com/news/201504/28077773.html
So it seems like this is what'll be taking DBKai's timeslot, come July. When you look at the shit-storm that one 90 minute movie made, just thinking about a full series makes me shake with fear and excitement. Personally, I prefer movies, but I'm open to whatever this brings us.

The Dragon Ball juggernaut is unreal. Four years ago, we thought the franchise was burying itself. :shock: Now it's back and going at it with the best of them.

EDIT: And it's up on the 30th Anniversary website!

Like, ummm.... er, what?!
I would like to write comment in distinguished fashion,
but WHAT THE HELL!!!

Is this real? I was thinking that after Kai Buu arc, maybe they will air some special or something... I wonder if it is after Buu arc in the Movieverse in the gap before Budokai, or if it is a sequel to Z?

Is that a DB-themed supermarket?

Is this...for real? Almost always the mere idea of a new Dragon Ball anime/manga continuation is merely a joke or misconception commonly found in the youtube community. Is this for once...real?

Was this more than the resurrection of F? Did they just opt to completely revive the franchise with a new series? Are we still going to be getting movies too? WTF is going on anymore?

Are we sure it's a new series or just the original Dragon Ball kaified?
Cuz i'm seeing way too many images of pre-Z stuff like Desert Bandit Yamcha and Tienshinan's sensei.

Even if it were just this, i would be delighted. :)

I uh...I'm having trouble processing this as a real thing and not some prank. I'm not sure what my reaction is.

...I wonder if Toei will actually let Funimation simulcast this.

The source does say it's about the story after the Buu arc.
