Dragon Ball Super, a brand new television anime inspired by Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball manga, will premiere on Japanese television in July 2015. This will be the first new Dragon Ball television series since Dragon Ball GT, which aired from 1996 to 1997.

The story of the anime is set a few years after the defeat of Majin Buu, when the Earth has become peaceful once again.

Masako Nozawa, the voice of Goku, Gohan, and Goten, commented on the new anime, saying, “We’ve always used the word ‘chō’ (Super) with Dragon Ball in commercials, games and the like, but the fact that the series titled Dragon Ball Super is beginning is the best thing ever.”

Fuji TV producer Osamu Nozaki commented on the new series as well, saying, “As I read the plot [of the series] I’ve already received from Akira Toriyama, my dreams for this begin to expand. An enemy even stronger than Buu or Freeza may appear…”

Toriyama is credited as the original creator, as well as for “original story & character concepts.” Toei Animation’s Kimitoshi Chioka is the series director, and Naoko Sagawa and Atsushi Kido join Nozaki as producers. Kido entered Toei just as the company was animating the Dragon Ball Z anime’s Freeza arc.
