While fans may have been hoping for a sequel to the Dragon Ball Super anime, fans have many reasons to be excited about the release of Daima as it brings the franchise back to its roots. The most obvious point of comparison for many fans will be Dragon Ball GT, in which Goku also ages.

Dragon Ball: What does Daima mean for Dragon Ball Super?
While fans have many reasons to be excited about Daima, it naturally raises the question of what this announcement means for the return of the Dragon Ball: Super anime. The Dragon Ball Super anime officially ended in 2018 with the conclusion of the Tournament of Power. Technically, the series also continued with the release of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, but it was a completely different beast from the Dragon Ball Super anime that fans had come to expect. There are still two exciting manga seasons left for the series to adapt, so it seems strange that Super hasn’t returned yet.
Luckily for fans, Daima shouldn’t be taken as a sign that Super will never return. One thing that Daima’s trailer emphasizes is that the film is intended to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Dragon Ball. With the return of young Goku, it’s easy to see how Daima intends to honor the franchise’s entire legacy. Given this, it would make sense for Daima to be Dragon Ball’s big release in 2024, while Super’s hypothetical return would likely be considered more for a 2025 release. This would not only help Not only did Toei Animation have more time to bring Super back after the poor reception of the first anime, but it also gave the manga more room to breathe for a new arc, which could focus on the menace. Black Frieza’s remaining threat.
Whatever Daima means for Dragon Ball Super, there’s no denying this is an exciting announcement. With a trailer showcasing impressive animation and the return of young Goku, this anime series will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Dragon Ball in a big way. Dragon Ball : Daima was shaping up to be a worthy embodiment of the franchise’s enduring legacy.
