A whole new universe of adventures for Goku and friends...and then some!

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, although this dub appears to be silently cancelled as the dub stopped at the Universe 6 arc and has yet to air another episode. Official subs are available for simulcast on Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and AnimeLab.

After running for almost three years straight, it was revealed on January 18, 2018, that Super will conclude in April of the same year, after 131 episodes. It is unknown if Super will receive a continuation like in the case of Kai, but the show will be replaced by a special anniversary anime of GeGeGe no Kitaro. Meanwhile, the staff will likely be moved to the production of the next Dragon Ball movie.

Information on the manga serialization can be found here.

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.
