The Dragon Ball franchise is like a super powered cockroach. No matter how many bombs, bullets, or kamehameha waves you use to try and destroy it, the nearly forty-year old saga refuses to lower it’s true power levels.
And why should it?
After stirring heavy interest from fresh-faced kids to middle-aged fanboys alike, Toei Animation has announced that it will not only release a new Dragon Ball Super film this winter, but has also commissioned a new full-fledged series entitled Dragon Ball Heroes. That’s right. Double the Dragon Ball!
The new anime is based off of a DBZ arcade game, Super Dragon Ball Heroes. The series will also be a short one with an undetermined episode count. It will also be released as a “PR piece” to help promote a new DB video game dropping this year in Japan.
DBH's Universe Survival and Prison Planet arcs that will be made into an RP Anime. The first episode's pre-screening will take place on July 1 at Ion Lake Town. And although it's a PR Anime they'll mash a few episodes together in order to extend its length.
