The popularity of the Dragon Ball Super saga has been massive since its first appearance on July 15, 2015. Furthermore, the Japanese animation television show promises a bigger story arc coming this February.
Goku, Vegeta and the rest of the gang might be the public’s favorite superheroes since the 90’s. That could be one reason that the kids and kids-at-heart love watching the all-new series.
To keep the excitement flowing, an executive at Shueisha spoke to Yahoo! Japan about the plans they have for this year. First, they explained the reason why Dragon Ball Super still mesmerizes the public.
The publisher stated that it is because of its legacy. Children of the 90’s who loves to watch Dragon Ball series might be parents now, so they would want to pass the interest into their children.
But more importantly, the avid viewers must be waiting for what’s bound to happen in the new anime show. According to Comic Book, Universal Saga will be the title of the new arc which will be out next month.
What to expect in the upcoming Dragon Ball Super episodes?
As per the outlet, the new story arc would focus on the new tournament. Read the synopsis below:
“At Goku’s request, the Omni-Kings’ ‘Tournament of Power’ martial arts tournament between universes now begins! …But this also proves to be the beginning of universal destruction. What awaits the victors of this tournament, and the vanquished…?! How will these intense team battles between the elites of each universe turn out…?!”
Since it stated that there will be a major tournament, the viewers might want to witness some rare and exciting Fusion of the characters.
To those who are not familiar of Fusion, Comic Book explained in another article that it is a process where two characters turned into one. There are ways of obtaining the Fusion technique: Namekian, Fusion Dance, Potara Earrings, EX-Fusion, Merge, and Possession. Meanwhile, the fans might want to witness a Fusion between these characters: Goku and Gohan, Cabba and Vegeta, Gohan and Super Buu, Future Trunks and Vegeta, and Raditz and Goku.
Dragon Ball Super airs on Crunchyroll Saturdays at 7:15 p.m. CST. Meanwhile, Toonami will begin airing the English dub on Adult Swim Saturdays at 11:30 p.m on January 7.
