Back in April, we reported that the new Dragon Ball TV series Dragon Ball Super will debut in Japan this summer. Today we have the new TV series trailer, which gives us our first look at Goku. The trailer itself is in Japanese, but we have a translation of what Goku says in the footage, courtesy of Anime News Network. Take a look at the translated text below.
"Hey, I'm Goku. Crossing 18 years of time, it's time to enter a new series! Dragon Ball Super premieres in July! Everyone, please be sure to catch our new battles."
Toei Animation's Dragon Ball Super will be the first all-new Dragon Ball television series to be released in 18 years. Following the recent events of the hit feature film, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection of F, Dragon Ball Super will debut in Japan on July 5, 2015. Reuniting the franchise's iconic characters, Dragon Ball Super will follow the aftermath of Goku's fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain earth's fragile peace.
Overseen by Dragon Ball's original creator, Akira Toriyama and produced with Fuji Television, Dragon Ball Super will draw on its historic past to create a bold, new universe welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers. Introduced as a manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1984, Dragon Ball has evolved into a globally beloved brand. Seen in more than 70 countries, with over 230 million copies of its comic books sold, Dragon Ball remains one of the most popular anime series of all time. Take a look at the new trailer for Dragon Ball Super below, and stay tuned for more information.
