The highly-anticipated Dragon Ball Super anime series is set to premiere in Japan early next month. The new series reunites the franchise’s iconic characters, and the story takes place after Goku’s battle with Majin Buu and follows him as he attempts to maintain Earth’s peace.
The series is being overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator, Akira Toriyama, and produced with Fuji Television. It was previously stated that the new series “will draw on its historic past to create a bold, new universe welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers.”
Dragon Ball Super is the first Dragon Ball anime series in 18 years, and it will premiere in Japan on July 5th.
Here’s a translation from the Anime News Network:
Goku: Hey, I’m Goku.
Goku: Crossing 18 years of time, it’s time to enter a new series!!
Goku: Since our battle with Majin Buu, some really incredible guys have shown up. Their names are God of Destruction Beerus and Shanpa. I guess they’re gods…
Goku: I’m going to fight with Beerus and the others with all my strength, and get even stronger!
Goku: The broadcast for Dragon Ball Super will begin next time.
