Dragon Ball Daima: Leaks, trailer, 2024 web anime details & everything we know
Dragon Ball is set to return in the form of a new streaming web anime called Dragon Ball Daima and it’ll be borrowing some elements from GT. Here’s everything we know right now.
A new Dragon Ball series called Dragon Ball Daima was revealed at New York Comic Con, much to the chagrin of those who expected a return of Dragon Ball Super.
Despite two movies having been released since the end of Dragon Ball Super’s anime run, with the manga picking up the story, DB is set to move onto a new series that will be streamed in fall 2024.
This is big news for Dragon Ball GT fans, because ‘Daima’ will be incorporating some of that spin-off’s ideas, only this time with Akira Toriyama’s involvement.
What is Dragon Ball Daima?
Dragon Ball Daima will be a new web anime that’s separate from Dragon Ball Super and Toriyama is overseeing its production.
According to insider Geekdom101, Legendary DBZ Japanese animator and character creator, Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru is also involved with the series. Notably, he designed Super Sayian 4, although there is no confirmation the form will return in Dragon Ball Daima.
It’s currently not known where it will debut in Japan or if an English dub is already in the works, so we’ll be sure to keep you posted. However, it’s been confirmed that the series will debut in 2024.
Currently, there have been a few contradicting reports about the episode length and how long the season will be, but more info is expected to be announced soon.
What will Dragon Ball Daima be about?
According to insider Geekdom101, the series will be called Dragon Ball Daima, and it will revolve around Goku and Kaiōshin being turned into kids by a demon and will need to work together to become adults again.
The duo will then go to different realms and planets to battle new enemies. A couple of others join their party: a girl and a boy armed with a sword and a gun.
Although this does sound very much like GT, it will not be a recreation of that series. Instead, certain ideas are being borrowed, so don’t expect Omega Shenron, Super Android 17, Baby Vegeta, and SSJ4 Gogeta to show up.
The first trailer was shown to attendees at New York Comic Con. In the teaser, a mysterious new character appeared to use a wish with the Dragon Balls to turn Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, Krillin and the rest of the cast into children, confirming some leaked details.
More information is expected to be revealed in the coming weeks and months, so keep it locked to Dexerto for all the latest.
