‘Dragon Ball Super’ gets thankful update after creator Akira Toriyama’s passing left story in limbo

Recommended Posts


The news of Akira Toriyama’s passing sent shockwaves through the anime and manga community. Dragon Ball, his magnum opus, stood as a global phenomenon, and the future of its ongoing series, Dragon Ball Super, remained uncertain.


Following a period of understandable hesitation, Shueisha, the manga's publisher, officially confirmed Dragon Ball Super’s return. The exact date remains under wraps, but fans can expect the series to grace the pages of V Jump magazine once again.


The creative team behind Dragon Ball Super faces a unique challenge. Toyotarou, the series’ artist, previously received storyboards and plot points from Toriyama. How the narrative will continue without this direct guidance is a source of intrigue. It's possible Toyotarou will rely on existing notes or collaborate closely with editors to maintain the series' spirit.


This isn't the first time Dragon Ball has navigated the absence of its creator. Toriyama, known for his lighthearted approach, semi-retired after Dragon Ball Z. However, he continued to provide story concepts and character designs for Dragon Ball Super and its recent film, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.


So, what are your hopes for the future of Dragon Ball Super?
