There’s no denying that Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball is one of the most popular anime and manga series of all time, and even after thousands of episodes of the series, the show has not lost its popularity among its viewers. However, fans who have been watching the series since the first time it was aired would feel that the show has changed immensely.

This is because the series would feature Goku and his friends on an adventure, collecting the seven Dragon Orbs, and showcasing classic martial arts. However, the series soon transitioned from showcasing martial arts to fighting alien life forms, who are hell-bent on destroying Earth. However, ever since Toei Animation announced Dragon Ball DAIMA,  a new anime series that is all set to showcase adventures like the original show.

Dragon Ball DAIMA Wins Back OG Fans

The newly announced Dragon Ball DAIMA has won the fandom of the series all over again, as they had grown bored of watching similar content over and over again. The show is set to showcase the kid versions of the entire cast, and Akira Toriyama has played a major role in the anime series’ production, which has set the fans’ minds at ease. The show which is set to release in the fall of 2024 is going to celebrate the legacy of the series and showcase our favorite Z-fighters in a new avatar.

A new trailer, released by Toei Animation Japan, that features glimpses of Son Goku from the upcoming show has got the fans excited, as they share positive comments in the video.

“Watch all the loud haters start praising it once it comes out lol. As someone who grew up with the OG Dragon Ball (not Z) manga, this is gonna be nostalgic af!”

“Man, it’s so surreal seeing Toriyama’s modern style being used in a Dragon Ball animation.”

“seems like some good down to earth dragon ball a good breath of fresh air from how massive the scale of dbs has gotten.”

“I wish we could’ve gotten the moro and granolah arcs animated soon but i don’t mind a “back to basics” series focused more on lore and martial arts choreography than ki attacks.”

“With this new installment of Dragon Ball, I think that Akira Toriyama finally made that story of turning Goku and his friends into children and taking a trip through the universe a reality as he had planned at the beginning with Dragon Ball GT, but now better structured with everything new that Akira has created. Dragon Ball Daima looks very very good!👌”

The upcoming show is set to mark the 40th anniversary of the phenomenally popular series, but there’s an advantage that the upcoming show has over DBS, it would dethrone the current favorite series.

Dragon Ball DAIMA‘s Unique Advantage Over DBS

Even though DBS received a warm welcome because it was the original successor to Z, the question remains how the show will conclude? DBS is set a decade in the future that takes place between Majin Buu’s defeat and the final chapter of Dragon Ball Z. Hence, the show’s conclusion always remains a mystery to the viewers of the show.

However, Dragon Ball DAIMA, on the other hand, doesn’t fall under this category, as it is meant to be a standalone story. The upcoming series will have its own story and have its ending, which makes it easier to satisfy the viewers with its ending. This gives the upcoming show, an upper hand over DBS, and if everything aligns correctly, it’ll become the new popular series in the franchise.

Dragon Ball DAIMA doesn’t have a release date, but it’ll be released in the Fall of 2024.
