Dragon Ball Super Super Hero has had a very long road to getting where it is now. Because first came the Dragon Ball Super anime that ended “too quickly” for fans after arguably the best arc ever via the Universal Survival Arc. Then, when had the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie which brought the fan-favorite character into the canon universe, and set a new record for Dragon Ball movies at the box office, and then…there was nothing. Until eventually Super Hero was announced and said to be something very special.
Not the least of which was that they were going to bring the Dragon Ball style into the realm of 3D, which they had technically done before via Dragon Ball FighterZ, but not in a full-on animation form like they were doing here. The film was supposed to release in April of this year in Japan, but...then a major hack at Toei Animation happened and it threw EVERYTHING for a loop. Making many wonder when the movie would arrive in not just Japan, but the West.
Well, now we have the answers to that. We already knew that Dragon Ball Super Super Hero was going to hit Japan next month, but now, Toei has announced that they’re going to be teaming up with Crunchyroll to release the next movie in the West starting in August.
So all in all, the delay is not too bad, and it means you’ll be able to enjoy more Dragon Ball soon enough. And that also means you can expect another months’ worth of teasers and other promotions to get you hyped for what is coming.
Now, as for whether this movie will lead to another anime being made…we don’t know that yet. But the success of Super Hero would surely trickle if things go a certain way!
