Dragon Ball may have ended its season, but that doesn’t mean Toei Animation is over with expanding the Dragon Ball franchise. Today, Dragon Ball Heroes is reported to be the next anime adaptation in DB ecosystem, and here’s what you need to know.
Yonkou Productions, a well-known Dragon Ball leaker/enthusiast, share the news via Twitter. Official reports regarding the source state that a representative from Weekly Shonen Jump dropped a hint and was later picked up and reported by Yonkou Productions, which got the Dragon Ball fanbase buzzing.
“DBH’s [Dragon Ball Heroes] Universe Survival and Prison Planet arcs [will] be made into an RP Anime,” says @YonkouProd. Hence, if the report ends up to be true (since we haven’t received any confirmation from Toei Animation, as of yet), then we are up for another Dragon Ball anime experience.
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.
