Anime / Dragon Ball Super

Dragon Ball Super is another continuation of the Dragon Ball manga, taking place after the Majin Buu Saga but before the manga's Distant Finale. It is Anime First, with its plot framework and character designs handled by Akira Toriyama. The series started airing on July 5, 2015 in Japan.

Super begins with a retelling of the events of Battle Of Gods and Resurrection F, comprising the first twenty-seven episodes, before moving to a new story where Goku and the others must search for the Super Dragon Balls to participate in a tournament between universes to determine who acquires the Earth of Goku's world.

There are two separate English dubs, similar to how Dragon Ball Z had dubs by both FUNimation and The Ocean Group. FUNimation's dub is airing on Toonami in the United States, just as their dubs of previous series have. Meanwhile, Bang Zoom! Entertainment has dubbed Super for Asian markets; it is currently airing on the Toonami channel in Asia. Official subs are available for simulcast on Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and AnimeLab.

A manga adaptation is being serialized monthly in V-Jump, written by Toriyama and drawn by Toyotarō, who previously created the Dragonball Heroes spin-off manga Victory Mission. As Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F was adapted in V-Jump just prior to the start of Super, the manga skips from the Battle of Gods arc to the Champa arc.

Not to be confused with Super Dragon Ball Z, a video game made by Bandai Namco and published by Atari in the US, or Dragon Ball Super Z, an old, old series of fanfics about Future Trunks' timeline post-series.
