Dragon Ball Super season 1 concluded with the Universal Survival Saga and now fans are wondering when Toei Animation plans on returning. While no timeline has been provided yet, they do have ample material from which they could glean inspiration.
According to the manga, Season 2 will follow two story arcs – Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga and Moro Arc – where Goku and Vegeta face an extremely powerful wizard who drains planets of life force, representing their biggest challenge since Frieza himself.
Season 2 will feature more antagonists from Universe 7, such as Beerus the God of Destruction who will attempt to destroy Goku. Meanwhile, members of the Red Ribbon Army who survived Goku’s assault may seek revenge against him and his allies.
Tien Shinhan (Tian Jin Fan in Japanese animation and Shinto in Harmony Gold dub) joins the Red Ribbon Army as an antagonist, rival to Master Roshi, and attempts to kill Goku and the other students of Planet Vegeta; he is defeated by Nappa however, and trained under King Kai until revived by Namekian Dragon Balls and revived back into life again, whereupon he joins his Red Ribbon Army allies, such as Doctor Gero (dokutagero or Dokuta Gero) together seek revenge against Goku.
Dragon Ball Super is one of the world’s most beloved anime series ever created, having run for an unprecedented 131 episodes and followed by a movie adaptation. It enjoys worldwide fan support and is widely considered among the greatest action shonen anime titles available today.
Though Dragon Ball Super ended in 2018, there are signs that season 2 may return. According to reports, creator Akira Toriyama is working on new chapters for season two as well as movement at Shueisha Publishing which publishes it.
The new episodes will likely follow the manga after the Universal Survival Saga and include both Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga and The Moro Arc – featuring Moro, designed by current Dragon Ball Super artist Toyotarou. This arc takes place several years prior to Broly movie and introduces an entirely new villain into the story.
After the Tournament of Power arc has concluded, Goku and his friends will continue their adventures against new foes such as Beerus – God of Destruction – including their efforts to overcome him and defeat them in this highly exciting and captivating story arc. It promises to provide fans with plenty of entertainment!
Dragon Ball Super’s inaugural season was an enormous hit, becoming Japan’s highest-grossing anime series and giving rise to one of its highest-grossing animated films ever released in Japan. Since then, there has been much speculation regarding a second season.
According to reliable Twitter leakers @DBSChronicles and @DBSHype, Dragon Ball Super Season 2 will pick up where Universe Survival Saga left off, following the Z fighters through an exciting battle against Cell. Furthermore, according to these sources Akira Toriyama himself will be involved with this project and therefore fans are anxiously waiting to hear more details on its sequel.
However, any information regarding an anime should be treated with caution until there is an official announcement from Toei Animation. Until that occurs, it would be prudent not to get too excited.
One of the first indications of Dragon Ball Super Season 2 came from an interview conducted with an animator from Toei Animation and posted to their website, appearing to confirm its sequel. Later it became evident that this information may have been misinterpreted or simply was an urban legend.
