After 18 years, “Dragon Ball Z” is making a huge comeback. Several reports claim that the sequel to one of the most popular anime series in the world is happening soon.
According to Inquistr, the “Dragon Ball Z” sequel called “Dragon Ball Super” is set to premiere on July. It was mentioned that the original voice actors for Goku, Gohn, Goten and Masako Nozawa will be returning, together with the original writer Akira Toriyama. The now 78-year-old voice talent was said to be very excited to be working on the “Dragon Ball” sequel.
“I hope that this series will last a long time and have the same impact around the world as its predecessor,” she said.
As the website pointed out, the return of “Dragon Ball” is pretty much historic, given that it will become one of the first anime series to have a sequel after such a long hiatus.
The synopsis of “Dragon Ball Super” was said to revolve around what happened to the cast after “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F”. It could be assumed that the series will take place five to 10 years after the “Dragon Ball Z” series finale. According to Scoopla TV, the sequel would follow Goku’s adventure in trying to keep peace on Earth after his epic battle with Majin Buu.
The sequel will reportedly air in Japan at 9am on Sundays beginning this July. It is, however, yet to be confirmed as to when the English version will air. English-speaking fans, however, could rest assured that the show will be coming their way sooner rather than later.
