The new Dragon Ball Z TV series, Dragon Ball Super, could be up to 100 episodes if Toei Animation gets its way.
Spanish website, Mision Tokyo, posted some interesting new information they managed to gather about Dragon Ball Super.
They say Toei Animation has planned to make a minimum of 100 episodes for Dragon Ball Super. If things go well and the new Dragon Ball Z TV show is a success, they can increase this number.
Mision Tokyo also reports Japanese TV station, Fuji TV, plans to air Dragon Ball Super at 9am on Sundays. They note the target audience will still be for kids. The show might have the same style as the Buu saga and the recent Battle of Gods movie.
They also note Dragon Ball Super is expected to premiere on July 5th, 2015 in Japan. This is likely as July 5th is a Sunday and it was already officially announced the new show would air in the Summer.
The news about Dragon Ball Super lasting as long as 100 episodes should be treated as a rumor until Toei Animation makes an official announcement. Judging by how popular Dragon Ball Z is worldwide, the series is sure to have a lot of episodes. It’s been years since fans have been treated with new episodes and the demand is high.
