Right now at New York Comedian Con, Toei Animation introduced a brand-new Dragon Ball anime sequence coming subsequent fall.

The brand new anime’s identify is Dragon Ball Daima. In contrast to the Dragon Ball Tremendous anime, Dragon Ball Daima (the latter phrase loosely interprets to “huge” or “giant” in Japanese) seems to be a chibi-stylized anime that follows Goku and Vegeta’s adventures within the Dragon Ball world. Going off screenshots of the present making the rounds on Twitter, Daima seems to rework all of DBZ’s characters into itty bitty variations of themselves à la Dragon Ball GT. However not like with the reviled GT, sequence creator Akira Toriyama is closely concerned with the manufacturing strategy of the brand new present.

“There are some issues I can’t say however one factor I can inform you is [in] this manufacturing Akira Toriyama has been deeply concerned past his ordinary capability overseeing the unique work, story, character design, and extra,” government producer Akio Iyoku mentioned. “Moreover, [Toriyama] has deliberate fully new episodes for the storyline so please sit up for the beginning of the sequence.

Regardless of being pretty tight-lipped on particulars relating to Toriyama’s degree of involvement in Daima, Iyoku revealed that the sequence’ identify was determined days earlier than its world premiere at NYCC and that Toriyama “meticulously” crafted numerous parts of the present, together with the design of varied characters like Bulma, automobiles, and monster designs.

Right here’s Dragon Ball Daima’s trailer.

Going off the trailer, Daima does seem like a refreshing entry within the long-running anime sequence. Of us like myself who lengthy for the lovable rounded designs of early Dragon Ball characters will get a kick out of seeing those self same designs return for characters like Android 18, Krillin, and Bulma. The present’s animation, which seemed an terrible lot just like the 2D animated section at the beginning of Dragon Ball Tremendous: Tremendous Hero, seemed freaking superior too. Goku even will get his trusty Energy Pole again, which is all the time a plus in my ebook.
