Japan’s Toei Animation has announced plans for “Dragon Ball Super,” the company’s first new “Dragon Ball” TV anime series since “Dragon Ball GT” almost twenty years ago. The series’ original creator Akira Toriyama will oversee the project which Fuji TV is producing.
The story follows the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain earth’s fragile peace.
Fuji TV producer Osamu Nozaki says: “Toriyama has developed a plot that’s not only a dream come true for Dragon Ball’s millions of fans, but one that will foster in a new generation of viewers”.
Introduced as a manga in 1984, “Dragon Ball” has since evolved into a global brand playing in more than seventy countries.
“Dragon Ball Super” will debut in Japan in July 2015. The announcement comes in the wake of the success of feature film “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F”.
