In a blaze of Super Saiyan glory, Toei Animation announced today that the first Dragon Ball series in 18 years will be debuting in July. What?! I KNOW.

Titled Dragon Ball Super, the new show will take place some time after the events of the film Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection “F” as our hero Goku continues to protect the earth and his friends who dwell there. The best part? It's being spearheaded by series creator Akira Toriyama, meaning it will be the first cannon Dragon Ball show since Dragon Ball Z completed in 1996. This basically treats the polarizing Dragon Ball GT series (which did not involve Toriyama) like a bad fever dream — and we're ok with that.



We don't know a whole lot about the new series, but with the continued success of the franchise worldwide, there's little doubt that Dragon Ball Super will be powering up for Western audiences for all to enjoy. For right now, we'll just need to beat our heads on a wall for a half hour every night until July.
