Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero was already released in theaters in Japan last June, and it's set to release around the world, starting this August. Rather than Goku and Vegeta, the shonen movie focuses more on Gohan and Piccolo as they battle the newly-revived criminal organization known as the Red Ribbon Army.
In a recent interview published on the official Dragon Ball website, Dragon Ball Super manga artist Toyotarou expressed his love of the movie while also sharing the lessons he learned from it.
"I went to watch it a number of times to learn as much as possible about Sensei's way of thinking and how he tells a story. I find that aspect fascinating and the way the story is put together is also very interesting. The jokes and their timing is hilarious. I feel like I still have a lot to learn if I want to be able to write jokes like that. So, I guess my favorite part of the movie is how much I've learned from it."
Toyotarou worked on the Dragon Ball Super manga with series creator Akira Toriyama, and it's good to know that the artist is learning a lot from his sensei.

The official synopsis for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero reads:
"The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves "Super Heroes". They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan... What is the New Red Ribbon Army's objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero."
