There has been a rumor polluting the internet that since Battle of Gods was so successful, Akira Toriyama is going to be working on a new Dragon Ball Series with 200+ episodes. This is just pollution, and is false information. On Kanzenshuu’s latest podcast it is fully explained as to why this is false information. Although many of you may be disappointed, the picture that has been polluting the internet with hopes of a new Dragon Ball series has been confirmed to be FALSE.
Here is a statement from Kanzenshuu:
This podcast episode is about using critical thinking skills to debunk rumors. There was no press conference, Akira Toriyama would not personally animate anything, and no new series is coming! Join us in the fight against bad Dragon Ball information.
Full credit goes to Kanzenshuu for always being so informative. Make sure to listen to their latest podcast to clear up any other questions one may have.
