I know you all have been waiting for Dragon Ball Super’s return in 2019 and we finally have some great news. Super’s coming your way later this year, and we’ll be discussing that below in this post.
Before we begin, I want to let you all know that there will be a bunch of spoilers from Super, and the Broly movie as well. If you don’t want to get spoiled, I suggest you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started!
The first thing on everyone’s mind will probably be when exactly Dragon Ball Super is coming back? The answer to that question is July 2019. Sources such as AnimeAjay, Geekdom101, and YonkouProductions have already confirmed this news yesterday. They’re all legit sources, so yes Super is definitely heading back in July 2019.
The show has been in production since late September – early October 2018. This certainly makes up for a healthy schedule. Compared to Super 2015 which had just 2 months of pre-production time, this is certainly a lot. We’ve got over 8 months of production time for Dragon Ball Super 2019, and that goes to say that Toei is going to make this thing as good as it can get.
The reason why Super had to go off-air in the first place is that the staff was overworked and the poor production meant that everyone was suffering towards the end. The Broly movie certainly paved the way for this to happen, and Dragon Ball Super 2019 will certainly be back in full force later on this year.
As far as the staff information on Dragon Ball Super 2019 goes, you’ll be happy to know that Naohiro Shintani is going to be the new character designser for the show. We’ve already seen what he can do in the Broly movie, and I’m glad Yamamuro won’t be back as the Character designer.
I’d definitely like to see him return to Key Animation duties, but as a character designer, he wasn’t appealing at all. The Series Director will likely be Ryuta Nakamura. However, Tatsuya Nagamine is not going to return alongside him. Nagamine recently delivered Dragon Ball Super: Broly, and has decided to take a break after this.
We don’t know who the Animation Supervisors will be on the show, but I expect to see some of Takeo Ide, Yuya Takahashi, Naoki Tate, Manabe, and maybe Shimanuki and even Yamamuro? Norihito Sumimoto is set to return to Super 2019 for the musical score.
The first arc of the show is not confirmed yet, but we’ve heard that the Broly arc will not be animated. That certainly means we’ll start with the Moro arc in the anime in July 2019, and I cannot be more excited for it to begin finally! According to Geekdom, an unofficial update of July 7, 2019, has been put forward. However, we don’t know if that’s true or not.
