An upcoming Dragon Ball animated series, titled Dragon Ball Daima, has been announced at the New York City Comic Con (NYCC) in celebration of the franchise’s 40th anniversary.

Dragon Ball Daima will see a number of classic Dragon Ball Z characters like Goku, Vegeta, and Bulma transformed into children, similar to the way Goku became a child in Dragon Ball GT.

Dragon Ball creator, Akira Toriyama, is said to be heavily involved with the production of Daima, overseeing the original work, story, and character designs, so we won’t have to deal with some non-canon stuff – I’m looking at you, Dragon Ball GT.

With regards to its timeline, Dragon Ball Daima takes place between the events of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super. It fills the events that happened after the Z Fighters defeated Majin Buu and before the arrival of Beerus.

The English and Japanese cast are yet to be revealed.

Even Bulma actress Monia Rial and Whis actor Ian Sinclair were caught off guard when Daima was announced at NYCC. Iyoku confirmed that Bulma would be in it but answered “maybe” when asked about Whis.

The trailer showcased scenes of Goku and Vegeta transforming into younger versions of themselves as well as some of the cast in their chibi form.

Not much were told in terms of its plot, but the animation featured in the trailer is superb.
