Longtime fans of the Dragon Ball series just went Super Saiyan. Toei Animation announced today that the famous franchise is getting its first new series in 18 years, Dragon Ball Super. The last iteration, Dragon Ball GT, ended in 1997, but the series has remained popular in syndication, leading to the remastered version of the Z series, Dragon Ball Z Kai, and two recent movies, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods and Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’. With the less-than-stellar response Dragon Ball GT received after creator Akira Toriyama left the series, it has long been rumored that he would return to create a new series called Dragon Ball AV. Although AV never came to fruition, it is exciting to hear that Toriyama is back to the series premiering in July, and that Super will pick up where Resurrection ‘F’ left off.
