Thanks to support from fans, one Dragon Ball Super voice actress thinks it'll keep going for some time yet.
In a recent interview, Goku's voice actress Masako Nozawa teased fans with some fun news about the franchise's run. To hype Dragon Ball Super's 100th episode which aired on July 23rd, Nozawa said, “If things go like this, it seems the 200th episode will come so quickly!"
The 80-year-old continued to give Dragon Ball Super fans even more good news as she said she's enjoyed her time making the new anime.
“These days, I am very happy that I have received many messages from the fans almost every day," Nozawa said. "Even when I walk outside, people say to me like, 'I watch it every week,' or 'It's exciting.”
Nozawa's ancedotes stress the Dragon Ball Super series is going well. Fans are entrenched in the Tournament of Power following the exciting Zamasu and Goku Black arcs. As a result of Dragon Ball Super's success, fans will seemingly get to see a lot more of Goku. However, Nozawa may be a bit too confident about how long Dragon Ball Super will run.
“Based on the number of the Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Super is aiming to reach its 700th episode. Fans of the series, I look forwarding to your ongoing support,” Nozawa teased.
The entire Dragon Ball franchise has over 770 episodes in total now, which means the series could finish with roughly 1370 episodes if Nozawa is right. For those counting, that total is more than One Piece, so here's to hoping Nozawa and Dragon Ball Super fans get their wish of another 600 episodes granted.
The synopsis of Dragon Ball Super's current saga can be read here:
