New Dragon Ball Series Premiering This Year
« on: May 01, 2015, 04:10:17 PM »
Yes, Dragon Ball fans, it's true. Prepare yourself for Dragon Ball Chou (a.k.a. Dragon Ball Super), it's a new series in the long running franchise, not sure if it'll be canon to Z or GT or both but it's coming and Akira Toriyama is returning to run the show. It may be premiering in Japan later this Summer and worldwide after that. See the confirm article here:

Perhaps or it could take place in the years between the time Kid Buu was defeated all the way to the final World Martial Arts Tournament in Z.

DB Kai is basically a reboot or remake for the new gen, not a new series. DB Chou will have new episodes, storylines, and characters. Basically Kai is for the audience who grew-up now, Chou is for us DB fans who once watch Dragon Ball and Z on Toonami or read the manga in the 90s.

IIRC.

GT is non-canon.

think i read somewhere the series goes something like this.

Dragon Ball -> Dragon ball Z/Kai -> Battle of gods -> Revival of F -> Dragonball Super


Though.. I'm not sure how excited I am for this.

I enjoyed battle of gods and the few videos i've seen of revival of F.

But SSJGod and SSJSS is purely stupid.  God is atleast passable because it resembles the full powered super saiyan.  but SSJSS. that name is garbage. the look is meh..

Since this is supposed to be canon. we'll probably see it again down the road.

I'd much rather see an adult Gotenks or Goku Jr/Vegeta Jr (even those goku and vegeta jr aren't technically canon).

So I was right after all, Dragon Ball Chou (Dragon Ball Super over here) is going to take place after the Kid Buu Saga but before Dragon Ball GT. Over 100 new episodes are planned starting July 2015.

"but before GT" meaning Toriyama is recognizing it as canon then?

It'll eventually be after those movies I presume but it should take place before the final World Martial Arts Tournament with Goku and Uub. Eventually we'll get to see how the present Trunks and Goten actually grown up. They say it'll have many new villains as well so we'll have to wait and see. Since Toei made GT without Toriyama's approval, now Toriyama would have to make this series so the event of the original would lead to GT (that is if he accept GT as canon to Z).

No one on the DB forums believes its canon.

They believe GT is non-canon simply because it makes no sense.

How does goku and vegeta go from SSJSS to depowered? where did the god powers go? 
I guess you can claim goku lost it when he became kid goku.  But that doesn't explain why vegeta can't be it.

That also doesn't explain why he had alot of trouble even reaching SSJ4.

IIRC. he did approve of the artwork and the story.  He just didn't write it. He oversaw the GT creation.
------------------------------
But I mean.  This is Akira Toriyama after all.  He did say that Pan couldn't go Super Saiyan because she lacked the blood to turn into it.. though as it turns out, Goku and Vegeta Jr. could go it.

I would think that maybe the God powers are just a temporary thing, perhaps Dragon Ball Super may shed some light on that.

That would be true for Battle of Gods because goku needed energy from multiple saiyans to become God.  can retcon it to say he needed pure good energy and when Baby was possessing others, it stopped this flow of pure good energy/ki.  or him being kid goku restricted him full access of it. for goku,

But from what I've read that in Revival of F. he "mastered" the god transformation which allowed him to reach SSJGSS (still a retarded name if you ask me)

Of course. the easiest way out of it is to so it's a movie. it's non-canon like all other dbz movies.

So yea we'll see when dbz super comes out.

This is how the new Goku will look like in the upcoming Dragon Ball Super manga by original artist Akira Toriyama. Hopefully the anime counterpart is similar. The manga will launch in the double-zied August issue of Shueisha’s V Jump.
