It's only been two days since the awesome but teasingly short trailer for Akira Toryima's newest series, Dragon Ball Super, and already the studio behind the show, Toei Animation, is teasing us again!
Dragon Ball Super is the next chapter in Toriyama's Dragon Ball series, acting as a direct sequel to Dragon Ball Z.
The show takes place after DBZ and the most recent films, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, and Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'. Two characters from Battle of Gods, Beerus and Whis, will be appearing in the show.
But thanks to this new promotional poster, we know that they aren't the only new faces who will be making an appearance.
The two new characters are unnamed as of now, but they appear to be of the same species as Beerus and his trainer Whis.
Who Are They?
For now, it's unconfirmed, but it's likely that these two are gods from an alternate universe, or perhaps even a different section of the same universe, similar to how the DB universe has several Kais that rule a section of it; King Kai being the one Goku and his friends are the most familiar with, as he the Kai of the North Galaxy, where Earth resides.
But even more important than who they are, what are they here for? It's possible that they're simply relatives of Beerus and Whis, which is why they look so alike (maybe that's Whis' sister, or girlfriend?!).
But the summary might be the key to figuring out what these two mysterious deities are doing in DBS:
In a peaceful period following the events of Dragon Ball Z, a villain who may be even more powerful than Majin Buu and Frieza appears. Goku continues to attempt to maintain Earth's peace.
That villain "even more powerful than Majin Buu and Frieza" could very well be the Beerus lookalike, with the Whis lookalike being his right hand man...woman! If that's true, it's possible that he's even stronger than Beerus, as the cat-like warrior was defeated by Goku last time they fought.
Speaking of Beerus, the poster does nothing to reveal what side he's playing on. Beerus has always been a mysterious character to me; he tries to destroy Earth, fails, befriends its inhabitants, and yet still threatens to destroy Earth and defeat Goku. Though his hotheaded nature insists that he's all talk, he IS the God of Destruction.
I guess only time will tell us where Beerus and Whis lie, and who these mysterious characters are?
In the meantime,
Who Do You Think They Are?
Who are the new Dragon Ball Super characters?
