‘Dragon Ball Daima’ Anime Announced for Fall 2024
For fans, there was a huge announcement by the Dragon Ball special panel at New York Comic Con, which introduced a new anime called “Dragon Ball Daima”, planned for release in the fall of 2024. Toiei Animation had given us a thrilling teaser trailer too.
Akira Toriyama is the man who initiated it all and is credited in this sequel for the original work, story, and character design. Actually, this new series is entitled ‘Dragon Ball Daima’ and created especially for the 40th anniversary of the original manga work. Dragon Ball Super ended six year back in 2018, and the expectation is high.
Following the announcement, a comment from Toriyama appeared on screen:
“‘Daima’ is a made-up term… in English it would be something like ‘Evil.’ Due to a conspiracy, Goku and his friends are turned small. In order to fix things, they’ll head off to a new world! It’s a grand adventure with intense action in an unknown and mysterious new world. Since Goku has to make up for his petite size, he uses his Nyoibo (Power Pole) to fight, something not seen in a long time.
I came up with the story and settings, as well as a lot of the designs. I’m actually putting a lot more into this than usual. Things will unfold that close in on the mysteries of the Dragon Ball world. Hope you all enjoy these different-from-usual battles that are cute and powerful!”
Most interestingly, Toriyama stated that he is much more involved in this work than ever before – he is creating the story, scenery, and design of it. He led us on to think that he would unravel some of the mysteries of the Dragon Ball world. Be prepared for some incredibly adorable fights that you will never forget.
