Dragon Ball Super is rated 7.4/10 and ranked #1980 with 750k members on MyAnimeList.
Let’s first answer if and when is dragon ball super season 2 coming out?
Toei Animation has not released any official date for Dragon Ball Super Season 2 as there are various reasons explaining the delay.
Firstly, the pandemic hit precisely when the first season ended, leaving the producers with the impossible renewal task. Secondly, the studio released the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly in December 2018, which spread out further episodes. Finally, the latest movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, was scheduled to release in April 2022, but it got postponed to 11th June 2022.
In a recent interview, Toei Animator Florence Jay had fans excited after stating, “I am excited about the new anime after Dragon Ball Super.” But this was lost in translation as he originally meant, “It remains to be seen if there is a second season of Dragon Ball Super.”
So, it’s unlikely that Dragon Ball Super Season 2 will come out soon. But if we were to make a prediction, the DBS Season 2 release date can be expected to drop in 2023.
DBS Season 2 trailer is yet to be revealed, but it’s expected Dragon Ball Super Season 2 will be shorter than season one, with a rumored 60 episodes to be in production.
On 29th November 2022, the show s’ official Twitter account tweeted the logo of the Dragon Ball Super Red Ribbon Army with a special announcement featuring the following day.
This update sent the Dragon Ball fandom a twist as many fans began wondering if the villain faction is set to make a return in Dragon Ball Super Season 2.
Unfortunately, fans were disappointed on 30th November 2022 as the official Twitter account announced a celebratory stream for the ‘DBS: Super Hero’ Blue-Ray release.
The announcement was followed by a short teaser featuring voice actors such as Toshio Furukawa, Hiroshi Kamiya, Kensuke Ohta, and Ryota Takeuchi standing in front of a life-sized Piccolo figurine. The reveal then panned to another life-sized figurine of Ultimate Gohan from the movie.
The teaser then showed the mangaka and team surrounded by what seemed like lots of new merchandise from the film. Moreover, Toriyama was sporting an official Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero jacket, designed using all the movie’s major characters.
The last time we saw the Red Ribbon Army was in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie, which featured androids Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. Members of the Red Ribbon Army were part of the Super Space-Time Tournament in two different teams but were defeated, and Aeos erased their respective timelines.
Dragon Ball Super Season one ended after the “Universal Survival Arc.” In the final episode, we saw our heroes fighting against Jiren. Frieza, Goku, and Android 17 manage to defeat him, but Frieza and Goku get eliminated. This leaves Android 17 as the winner of the Tournament of Power.
As the winner, he gets wishes from the super dragon balls to which he wishes back the destroyed world to be restored. This impresses the present and future Grand Zeno, who already knew the tournament’s outcome. As the episode concludes, we see our heroes leaving for their planets, vowing to meet and fight again.
Dragon Ball Super Season 2 will have many exciting plot points to bring out on the screen. It’s shown at the end of the first season that Goku can’t control his Ultra Instinct form. There is a real possibility he does some special training and eventually masters it in Dragon Ball Super Season 2.
The new season will also begin the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc, introducing a new villain in the form of a humanoid goat called Moro. He was released from the Galactic Prison after Grand Supreme Kai s’ seal broke during the destruction of Kid Buu. The prison break also released many influential prisoners who shall be forming minor characters to take on our fighters.
Dragon Ball Super Season 2 will focus on this storyline ending in 2020 in the Dragon Ball Super manga.
The Dragon Ball Super is directed by Kimitoshi Chioka. Toyotarou is the chief illustrator, while Bezerra Wendel is the Animation director.
