'Dragon Ball Super' Promo Features New Characters

With just a little more than a week until its July 5 premiere, Fuji TV has debuted an extended promo spot for "Dragon Ball Super," introducing new characters from the franchise's first television anime in 18 years.

The series is set a few years after the defeat of the planet-destroying Majin Buu/Majin Boo, at a time when Earth is peaceful again. As revealed last week, "Dragon Ball Super" will contain plot elements that tie into the recent “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F'” movie; Whis and Beerus from “Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods” and “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’” will appear as regular characters.

“Dragon Ball” creator Akira Toriyama is credited with “original story and character concepts.”

Here's a translation of the promo, courtesy of Anime News Network:

Goku: Hey, I'm Goku.Goku: Crossing 18 years of time, it's time to enter a new series!!Goku: Since our battle with Majin Buu, some really incredible guys have shown up.
