Dragon Ball Super - new animated project coming?

Dragon Ball Super - new animated project coming?
While the manga proceeds fast, from the point of view of animated projects Dragon Ball Super is stopped in 2018 with the conclusion of the narrative arc of the Tournament of Power which was followed by the excellent feature film Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Then no updates, but 2021 could be the return of Dragon Ball Super in animated form.

A clue directly from the official social networks

The official twitter profile of the franchise in fact thanked singer Kiyoshi Hikawa for his live performance of Limit-Break x Survivor (the second opening of the Dragon Ball Super anime) during the NHK channel broadcast during the evening of December 31st.

The message then greeted fans with a "goodbye" for a generic "Dragon Ball animated in 2021". It could have been a clue to a new project yet to be announced or more simply it refers to the return, in rerun, of Dragon Ball Super on Japanese broadcasters in February.

It should also be emphasized how these reruns are very rare in Japan and in most cases linked to the return of the series with new projects not specifically television but also film.



Dragon Ball Super, the manga and the anime

Dragon Ball Super narrates the events that occurred after the battle against Majin Buu and includes the following ten years until the end of Dragon Ball Z, thus positioning itself between the 288th and the 289th episode of the latter. It begins as a remake of the animated films Dragon Ball Z - The Battle of the Gods and Dragon Ball Z - The Resurrection of 'F', and then proceeds to tell original stories.

The anime consists of 131 episodes produced by Toei Animation and aired on Fuji Television while in Italy, in blocks of episodes, it was broadcast on Italia 1 dubbed in Italian between 2016 and 2019. Direct sequel to the series is the film, the 20th of the franchise, Dragon Ball Super: Broly released on February 28, 2019 thanks to Anime Factory.



The manga, which we remember is written by Akira Toriyama and drawn by Toyotaro, has instead reached the 14th volume, the first 12 have already been published in Italy by Edizioni Star Comics.

Here is the synopsis of the first volume:

Different time has passed since the great battle between Goku and Majin Buu, and now a new threat hangs over the world that has found peace again ... This time the enemy comes from the "Sixth Universe"! A whole new Dragon Ball begins, picking up the Saiyan adventures where they left off!
