Dragon Ball Super (ドラゴンボールスーパー; Doragon Bōru Sūpā; commonly abbreviated as DBS) is a recent installment in the Dragon Ball franchise, set between Dragon Ball Z episodes 288-289 (between chapter 518-519 manga) is an anime and manga series which began airing on July 5, 2015.[1][2] It is the first Dragon Ball television series featuring a new storyline in 18 years since the final episode of Dragon Ball GT in 1997.

A Dragon Ball Super manga is being produced alongside the anime. The series is developed by Toei, in a similar process to the Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT animes. The series plot takes place after the Majin Buu Saga, in between the ten year gap towards the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament.

Overview

Dragon Ball Super Opening Logo

Akira Toriyama writes the plot outline, and then a team of writers creates the script, expanding, adding, and changing elements from Toriyama's plan as they deem appropriate.[10] They also sometimes decide not to include things from Toriyama's outline.[11] The original suggestions for some of the storylines come from the editorial office, then Toriyama writes the outlines.[12] However, Toriyama has seemingly complained about the anime's quality at points.[13]

The series' plot begins showing the aftermath of the Majin Buu Saga, then proceeds to retell and alter the stories of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ as new story arcs. The next part of Super following this takes place in the Universe 6 with the Z Fighters searching for the Super Dragon Balls.[14]

Story

In a peaceful period following the defeat of Kid Buu, Goku continues to attempt to maintain Earth's peace despite being forced by Chi-Chi to work on their radish farm. Gohan and Videl are married while Krillin has become a police officer.[15] The God of Destruction Beerus prophesizes of a Super Saiyan God and upon waking begins a search for the figure. The search leads him to King Kai's planet where he outclasses Super Saiyan 3 Goku, before turning his eyes to Vegeta on Earth. Beerus enjoyed his time on Earth until he was angered by the ungenerous Majin Buu for not sharing his pudding. The Z-Fighters team up to take out Beerus but his power was too much for them.

Before Beerus could destroy the Earth, Goku intervenes and requests for more time to seek out the Super Saiyan God. Goku uses the Dragon Balls to summon Shenron and learns that a ritual is performed to make the Super Saiyan God. After achieving this state, Goku begins another battle with Beerus. In the end result of Beerus winning, Beerus leaves to go back to his planet and sleep. Sorbet and the rest of the Third Stellar Region are failing to find Dragons Balls and the empire crumbling so they set out to revive Frieza. After Frieza has been revived, he seeks revenge on Goku and trains for four months. During this time, Goku and Vegeta are being trained by Whis to grow stronger in their base.

Frieza has returned to Earth and brings an army of one thousand soldiers. His army has been defeated by some Z-Fighters. Goku and Vegeta eventually realize Frieza is alive and reach Earth. Goku and Vegeta combat Frieza in his Golden Form using Super Saiyan Blue. Frieza destroys the Earth as a last ditch effort to escape the wrath of Vegeta, however, Whis, Beerus, Goku and some few others survive. Whis alters time and sends Goku five minutes into the past to finish off Frieza before he can destroy the Earth. Gohan starts training with Piccolo to get even more stronger and protect his loved ones and Goku and Vegeta resume their training.

Goku and Vegeta's training is interrupted once again with the arrival of Champa and Vados. It is revealed that there are twelve universes in all, and Goku and Vegeta are of Universe Seven, and Champa is the God of Destruction of Universe 6. Upon being stunned by the delicacies of Earth, Champa and Beerus arranges a five-member team Tenkaichi tournament of Universe Six and Seven. If Champa wins, he will swap the Earth of Universe 7 with the extinct Earth of his universe. If Beerus wins, he will obtain the six Super Dragon Balls Champa has been secretly collecting throughout the two universes. Team Universe 7, consisting of Goku, Vegeta, PiccoloMajin Buu and the mysterious Monaka fight off against Team Universe 6, FrostHitBotamoCabba and Auta Magetta. Team Universe 7 wins and as Champa is about to incur his wrath against his opponents, Zen-Oh, the Omni-King appears and says that he has been observing the event, and hopes to set up a similar tournament, with contestants from all twelve universes. The Omni-King leaves, and Beerus utilizes the Super Dragon Balls to resurrect Universe Six's planet Earth along with its inhabitants.

After that event, Goku, Vegeta, GotenTrunks and Monaka are stranded on an outer space adventure, where Goku faces off against Copy-Vegeta. Some time later, Future Trunks uses his time machine to escape from his dystopian timeline, where Future Bulma and millions have perished from the mysterious threat known as Goku Black. Arriving in the present, Trunks reunites with the Z-Fighters and meets Beerus and Whis. Goku Black invades their timeline to seek Trunks, and ends up fighting with Goku. However, a distortion pulls him back to Future Trunks' timeline. Realizing that Black was using a mystical artifact known as the Time Ring, which only belongs to the Supreme Kais, along with Goku, Beerus & Whis travel to Universe 10, to apprehend Gowasu, who has the Time Rings, and his apprentice Zamasu, who possesses identical ki to Black. Zamasu distrusts all mortal beings because of constantly getting into war, however, there is nothing he can do about it. After he is easily defeated by Goku, Zamasu thinks that the power of the mortals are going unchecked and reveals his hatred for them.

Zeno summons Goku to his palace, where they meet Grand Priest. Zeno declares that he wants to be Goku's friend and gives him a button that will summon him if needed. Using another time machine, Goku, Vegeta and Future Trunks head into the future and are shocked to see Black with another counterpart of Zamasu. They get defeated and head back to the past. Zamasu's beliefs of mortal extinction is strengthened after he sees more violence and the two universe tournament. He confronts Zuno and forces him to tell him about the Super Dragon Balls and Goku. Supreme Kai informs of this event to the Z-Fighters. Beerus, Goku, Whis & Supreme Kai head to Universe 10 where they witness Zamasu assassinating Gowasu in order to steal the Time Ring. Whis uses his Temporal Do-Over technique to undo the effect, and Beerus destroys Zamasu. Goku, Vegeta & Future Trunks head back to the future where they see that Goku Black and Zamasu are still present. Black reveals that he is indeed Zamasu. Before Future Trunks created a new timeline by going to the past, in the original timeline, Zamasu still met Goku, assassinated Gowasu, stole his Time Ring, and used the Super Dragon Balls to swap bodies with Goku and later kills him. He uses the Ring to travel to the timeline of Future Trunks and seeks a new ally, this timeline's version of Zamasu. They wreak havoc on multiple planets and reach to Earth, continuing their Zero Mortals Plan.

Trunks attains a new mysterious transformation, while a beaten Goku and Vegeta return to the past. Goku learns the Evil Containment Wave so that he can seal Zamasu away while Vegeta trains in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. They return to the future and later, Gowasu and Supreme Kai joins in to stop the evil acts. After Future Zamasu is driven to a corner, Goku Black decide to utilize their contingency plan, and they fuse to become Fusion Zamasu. Goku and Vegeta use Gowasu and Supreme Kai's Potara Earrings to fuse and become Vegito, and a ferocious battle ensues. However, because of the time limit and physical constraints caused by the Potara Fusion, Goku and Vegeta defuse. Future Trunks steps in as Zamasu is being overwhelmed by the imbalance of his spiritual and physical state and uses the energy of Goku, Vegeta and all the living beings in the planet, to slice Zamasu up, who is forced to abandon his physical body, and tries to become the manifestation of justice itself, absorbing the cosmos. Goku uses Omni-King's button which summons Future Zen-Oh, who destroys the timeline. The surviving fighters escape to the past. Future Trunks and Goku return to the timeline back again, and they take Future Zeno to the main timeline's Zen-Oh, and they become playmates. Future Trunks and Future Mai decide to live in the new alternate timeline that Whis created after he went to warn Future Beerus about Zamasu and they bid a heartful final farewell to the Z-Fighters.
