Dragon Ball Anime Returns to TV After 18 Years

The Manga and TV franchise Dragon Ball is returning to Television after 18 years in form of a TV show titled ‘Dragon Ball Super’.

The name has been inspired by the frequent use of the word ‘chou’ in Japanese and ‘Super’ in various other video games, commercials and others.

Dragon Ball Super is set to air in Japan in July however; the English release date is still unknown. The show Dragon Ball GT was last aired in 1996 and 1997. The voice of Goku, Gohan and Goten, Masako Nozawa hopes that the new series will continue the legacy of its ancestor show and prove to be up to the mark.

“I hope that this series will last a long time and have the same impact around the world as its predecessor.”

The new series will be an adaptation of the cult favorite magic balls, ape men, evil androids and wish-granting dragons’ tale written and created by Akira Toriyama.

Osamu Nozaki, Fuji TV producer said that the new villain will be stronger than the previous ones.

“As I read the plot [of the series] I’ve already received from Akira Toriyama, my dreams for this begin to expand. An enemy even stronger than Buu or Freeza may appear.”

Recently in April, a new film was released Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, the movie will be distributed all over the globe in 2015. Luckily for the fans this news is not unreal. Most people involved within the project are excited for the return and are talking openly about it.
