What will happen to “Dragon Ball Daima” after the death of Akira Toriyama?

“Dragon Ball Daima”, the new anime that was going to arrive in 2024 coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the series. Unlike what happened with “Dragon Ball GT”, Toriyama was “deeply involved” in the project. He was in charge of both writing the story and designing his characters and vehicles. Although his chibi style raised some doubts in his presentation, the author defended the series in a letter to fans and claimed to be giving much more than usual to make it up to par.

Although it’s impossible for the series to be canceled given how far along it is in development, Toriyama promised that “Daima” would delve deeper into the mysteries of the world of “Dragon Ball.” Therefore, the big question here, regardless of the date, is whether he finished the script or if at least the author told someone about those unknowns that he wanted to unravel. Its quality or value within the saga could depend on this.

The final decision falls on Akio Iyoku, the editor-in-chief of “Dragon Ball”, who just a few months ago broke up with the publisher Shueisha (responsible for Weekly Shonen Jump magazine). Iyoku’s new publisher, Capsule Corporation Tokyo, has the rights to Goku and company outside of “Dragon Ball Super” and she will mark the future of the saga from now on.
