Before we get into the Universe Survival Arc in February, fans will be met with four light-hearted, non-story progressing episodes in January 2017. Gohan as Great Saiyaman will be the focus of the first three episodes. For the fourth, present day Goku and Krillin go to Master Roshi for training like old times.
Then, on February 5, the next story arc of Dragon Ball Super begins! To kick things off, it seems like a new half-Saiyan is coming soon as Bulma is pregnant! This shouldn’t be a spoiler to fans of the Dragon Ball Z anime as Bulma and Vegeta’s daughter, Bulla (also known as Bra), is shown around the age of 4 in episode 289 of the anime (and chapter 518 of the manga). Since Dragon Ball Super tells the story after Kid Buu’s defeat, but before the final episode/chapter of Dragon Ball Z, we’re getting to see the events that lead up to her initial appearance!
Based on Bulma being pregnant, in terms of the Dragon Ball timeline, this means it has been more than 5 years since Kid Buu’s defeat. Dragon Ball Z episode 289 takes place 10 years after Buu’s defeat, so Dragon Ball Super potentially has another 4-5 years of story events to cover.
Anyways, take a look at the Janaury 2017 schedule of Dragon Ball Super below along with the first episode in February.
