Dragon Ball Super: New Story Details Unveiled

Posted on June 17, 2015

The story of Dragon Ball Super has been very much a mystery lately, but in the up-coming issue of Shuiesha’s V-Jump magazine, the silence is broken! The first new details we have on the story according to the magazine and AnimeNewsNetwork are as follows:

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.

The magazine specifically mentions the story takes place shortly after the battle with Majin Buu and will contain plot elements that tie it to the recent Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ movie. Additionally, the characters Beerus and Whis will return from Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ as regular characters in the series.

We are left a little confused with Beerus and Whis involved, but for the most part, the setting of the series seems to start before the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie and likely transition to events after later on. In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Gohan and Videl are presumed to be married since they are having a child, so the fact Goten is looking for a present for his soon-to-be sister-in-law leads us to believe the Dragon Ball Super story starts prior to the events of the 2013 movie. Anime Games Online, of course, hopes to have the latest on Dragon Ball Super as more is released. The series begins on July 5 in Japan. No information has been released on an English version of Dragon Ball Super, dubbed or subtitled at this time, but if any news surfaces, we hope to let you know!
