TOEI Prepping Dragon Ball Super for Spain and Italy

Despite the initial rocky start, Dragon Ball Super has proven to be every bit the series continuation that fans wanted.

Turner Secures Dragon Ball Super for Several Asian Territories

The return of Akira Toriyama’s iconic Dragon Ball franchise was incredibly successful, despite many of the original series’ fans being old enough to be the fathers of its newer followers.

New 30-Second TV Spot for Dragon Ball Super

A new 30 second TV Spot has been released for Dragon Ball Super, featuring Battle of Gods’ Beerus and what seems to be another God of Destruction, Champa.

New Dragon Ball Series in the Works

With Fukkatsu no F proving to be an impressive commercial success, plus a recent spate of Dragon Ball videogames, it’s not surprising that Toei has suddenly expressed an interest to revive the anime itself.

New Preview for Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope

We’ve already posted a blog entry about the fan made film Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope a few weeks ago (or a couple of months ago?) but news about the live-action adaptation of The History of Trunks were few and far in between, and it’s easy to get the impression that the project has went the way of the do-do, like so many other attempts to add another D to Akira Toriyama’s iconic 2D ...

New Dragon Ball Z Movie Scheduled for 2015

Despite the ending (won’t spoil anything, but it’s pretty much a cop-off), the latest Dragon Ball Z anime movie, Battle of Gods, still managed to do well in terms of profit and fan reception, probably owing to the fact that Toriyama has had a more active input and it effectively retconned a large part of the universally maligned GT away. So it’s not surprising that they are willing to give ...
