It's been months since we've seen the conclusion of the Dragon Ball Super anime series but since a new saga for the series just started in the manga, fans know that there's a possibility that new episodes based on that will eventually be adapted into anime. After releasing the first film, a new report from NATPE says that Toei Animation is planning to make new episodes for the series.
The National Association of Television Program Executives held an annual convention in Miami and World Screen was at NATPEMiami to cover news from foreign companies. According to the trade magazine, the news comes from Toei Animation, and it's about the future of Dragon Ball Super.
Here's what they said (via Comicbook.com): “The company is also making more episodes of Dragon Ball Super, a Japanese fantasy martial arts action series in the Dragon Ball media franchise that follows Goku in the aftermath of Majin Buu’s defeat and as God of Destruction Beerus awakens.”
It looks like Toei Animation has plans to release more episodes of Dragon Ball Super.
The next Dragon Ball Super episodes will probably adapt the manga's Galactic Patrol Prisoner arc which will introduce a new villain.
Here's the reported synopsis of the Galactic Patrol Prisoner arc:
“Shortly after the ToP and the events of DBS: Broly, Goku and Vegeta are training together when Bulma passes along a message from Mister Satan that a mysterious group has appeared at his house and is attempting to kidnap Buu. Goku and Vegeta go to investigate and indeed find a group loading the (still sleeping) Buu into a familiar-looking spaceship.”
Dragon Ball Super: Broly is now showing in theaters worldwide. Dragon Ball Super currently airs on Adult Swim during Toonami's Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m. It's also available to stream on Funimation and Amazon Video.
