Originally created by artist Akira Toriyama in 1984 in manga format, the eventual anime adaptation as “Dragon Ball” and “Dragon Ball Z” garnered worldwide popularity, and multiple spinoff movies, video games, comics, and more. The new series, titled “Dragon Ball Super”, will follow the story of the two recent movies, “Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Dogs”, and “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F”.
The debut of “Dragon Ball Super” will mark the first new anime entry in the Dragon Ball franchise since “Dragon Ball GT” in 1996!
