Shueisha’s monthly V Jump magazine’s January issue, which was released on Nov 21, 2023, announced the main staff members that are involved in the upcoming Dragon Ball Daima anime.
Aya Komaki along with Yoshitaka Yashima will serve as the directors, with Yuuko Kakihara in charge of the series script. It has also been confirmed that Katusyoshi Nakatsuru will handle the character designs.
Moreover, it was also revealed that Masako Nozawa will return to voice Goku.
Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama overlooked the the story and designed the characters for the upcoming anime.
Dragon Ball Daima is set to release in Fall 2024. The exact date is yet to be revealed.
Dragon Ball Daima is stated to be an original anime with the plot revolving around Z characters along with the Supreme Kai who were turned into children by a nemesis.
Though the plot shares similarities with Dragon Ball GT, it is said to be very different from it.
Rumors had previously surfaced that a new Dragon Ball web anime series will be announced at NYCC this year and that its plot would involve Goku and Kaioshin (Supreme Kai) who are turned into kids by a demon and they subsequently travel different realms and planets, battling new enemies, in a bid to regain their original form.
Dragon Ball is a Japanese media franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. The initial manga, written and illustrated by Toriyama, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1984 to 1995, with the 519 individual chapters collected into 42 tankōbon volumes by its publisher Shueisha.
Toriyama’s manga was adapted and divided into two anime series produced by Toei Animation: Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, which together were broadcast in Japan from 1986 to 1996. Additionally, the studio has developed 21 animated feature films and three television specials, as well as two anime sequel series titled Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super.
Twenty animated theatrical films based on the Dragon Ball series have been released in Japan. The most recent films, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods (2013), Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ (2015), Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018), and Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero (2022), were produced as full-length feature films and were given stand-alone theatrical releases. They’ve also been the first movies to have original creator Akira Toriyama deeply involved in their production.
