Dragon Ball Super is set to air in Japan in just a few short days on July 5th and new details on episode 1 have been revealed in the 31st issue of Shuiesha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine! In particular, those details are the episode title, timeline, and synopsis!
Dragon Ball Super episode 1 will be titled “Who Will the 100 Million Zenny Peace Reward Go To…?!” and it will take place six months after the battle with Majin Buu. The events of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods took place 4 years after the battle with Majin Buu, so one can assume Dragon Ball Super begins 3.5 years before Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. The synopsis for episode 1 thanks to Kanzenshuu is as follows:
With the Earth at peace, Goku earns money?!
Six months after the fierce battle with Majin Buu. While the days pass peacefully, Goku works tilling the soil like Chi-Chi had ordered him, while still finding time to train. Meanwhile, newly-weds Gohan and Videl are living happily, but…?!
Based on the scan from Jump magazine, it seems like Goten and Trunks may have a side story on a weekly basis, unrelated to the main story. That’s just our guess anyways as the magazine mentions:
Goten & Trunks This Week: What do they pick for a wedding gift?!
Goten wants to give Gohan a wedding present, and Trunks offers his advice! What item do they end up picking?!
No information has been released on an official English version of Dragon Ball Super, dubbed or subtitled at this time, but if any news surfaces, we hope to let you know right here on Saiyan Island!
