Dragon Ball DAIMA

Toei Animation unveils new Dragon Ball anime for series’ 40th anniversary

Titled Dragon Ball DAIMA, the anime is an entirely new story developed by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama. A video shared to Toei Animation’s YouTube channel shows Toriyama’s legendary characters in a chibi-style.

The video was first shown to attendees during a panel held at the New York Comic Con on Thursday, October 12th, 2023.

A statement by Toriyama was posted on the Official Dragon Ball website, explaining the made-up word “DAIMA” (which translates into “evil”), and a bit of backstory on Goku’s new appearance.

Dragon Ball DAIMA is expected to air during the fall of 2024 when the original Dragon Ball manga turns 40.
