It’s almost here! For all you Dragon Ball fans, it is time you cleared your schedule. In just over 24 hours, the English dub of Dragon Ball Super is set to debut, and fans all over the U.S. are anxiously awaiting for its premiere. Toonami will air the first episode of the acclaimed anime tomorrow night, and Adult Swim wants to celebrate. Over on Facebook, the popular program shared a new teaser for the show, and it has fans pumped.
The clip starts out with a voice over of Old Kai. The elder god is trembling as he announced that, “Lord Beerus the Destroyer has awoken!”
Fans then see Beerus in full-force as the purple God of Destruction goes about the universe causing chaos. However, he seems to be in search of something. Or, more rather, someone.
“I see him clearly, the ultimate fighter. His power will keep me suitably entertained,” Beerus says. “I will find him - this Super Saiyan God.”
For those fans who’ve kept up with Dragon Ball Super’s Japanese episodes, then they know just where the story is heading. Covering the ‘God of Destruction Beerus” saga, the first several episodes of Dragon Ball Super will find Goku facing off against the god. Unsure of who this Super Saiyan God is, Beerus seeks out Goku and Vegeta to test their skills, and a few action-packed battles come out as a result.
In February, a brand-new story arc of Dragon Ball Super is set to kick off in Japan with the ‘Universal Survival’ saga. You can check out the brief synopsis for it below:
“At Goku’s request, the Omni-Kings’ “Tournament of Power” martial arts tournament between universes now begins! …But this also proves to be the beginning of universal destruction. What awaits the victors of this tournament, and the vanquished…?! How will these intense team battles between the elites of each universe turn out…?!”
Shortly after the arc was announced, producer Shunki Hashizume had this to say about the impending saga. “Dragon Ball Super enters its new chapter, the “Universe Survival Arc”. As you can see from the main visual, it’ll be a full-throttle story where Goku and the rest of the Universe 7 warriors form a team to take on a tournament between universes!” he wrote.
