The Dragon Ball anime returns with Dragon Ball Super! The initial announcement by Toei Animation revealed the series would begin on a Sunday in July, but no specific date was mentioned. We at Anime Games Online had suspected it may be the first Sunday, July 5th and today a new scan from Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine confirms that to be true – the Dragon Ball Super anime begins July 5, 2015 in Japan at 9:00 AM (Japanese Standard Time)!
Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, is credited for the original story & character concepts for Dragon Ball Super. No details on the actual story, however, have been announced at this point in time except it will take place after the Majin Buu arc. Episodes of Dragon Ball Kai’s Majin Buu arc are currently airing in Japan and the series is expected to end this month.
FUNimation, the company behind Dragon Ball in North America, has not yet announced any information about an English version of Dragon Ball Super, dubbed or subtitled. If things go as we hope them to, there should be an official version of Dragon Ball Super on the web as soon as they air in Japan.
Dragon Ball Super will kick off with an opening titled “Chozetsu ☆ Dynamic!” (Chozetsu = Transcendence) by Japanese singer/songwriter Kazuya Yoshii. The ending theme will be by Japanese rock band Good Morning America and it will be titled “Hello Hello Hello”.
