The January issue of Shueisha’s monthly V Jump magazine announced the main cast for the Dragon Ball Daima anime series on Tuesday. It also confirmed that Masako Nozawa will return to voice Son Goku.
Yoshitaka Yashima (animation director of Dragon Ball Super, Digimon franchise) and Aya Komaki (One Piece series director, episodes of Marie & Gali) are serving as series directors, Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru (Dragon Ball Z, Digimon series) is adapting Akira Toriyama’s character designs into animation and Yuuko Kakihara (Digimon Adventure tri. movies, 2022 Urusei Yatsura, Cells at Work!) is supervising and writing the series. Franchise creator Akira Toriyama is credited as the story and character designer for the new anime.

In the series, Goku, Vegeta, Bulma, and other characters throughout the series become younger than usual. However, this differs from the similar plot in the Dragon Ball GT anime, in which Goku reverts back to a child after the end of the original series. Although the title “Daima” has no meaning, the kanji can be understood as “Demon” in English.
The anime is scheduled to release in fall 2024.
The new entry in the franchise was announced at New York Comic Con on October 12, with Toriyama “participating further than his usual capacity” in the anime. More information will be announced during the next Dragon Ball game battle hour on January 27-28.
The Dragon Ball Super anime television series (pictured right) premiered in July 2015 and aired 131 episodes until March 2018. Funimation and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, while Funimation released the series on home video.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero opens in Japan in June 2022 and the United States that August. Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures screened the film in theaters worldwide. Screenings include the original Japanese audio with subtitles and dubbing, and the films are shown in 13 dubbed languages and 29 subtitled languages.
