A Dragon Ball Nerd: The Last Blog
What did I mean about ” Is it the end?”? Well, I want to discuss the end of Dragon Ball.
On January 31, 1996 the last episode of DBZ aired in Japan. Then we had Dragon Ball GT. Yes it’s a thing, get over it. and Yes Toriyama did have some say on the show. Regardless of the movies and video games. But After that, the world or even Toriyama did not think that Dragon Ball will return to TV.
Then, Battle of Gods happened. And we loved it. Then, we had Resurrection F. And it looked amazing.
Now, we have Dragon Ball Super. From 2015 to current, 87 episodes, 4 arcs completed, and the current Threat of the Universal Survival Battle Royal arc. And WE DB fans are loving and hating it.
The question is, will Dragon Ball Super end?
Well, yeah. But not soon. It will continue as long as the show makes money, and Bandi Namco are making sure of that. ( I’m taking about Dragon Ball Marketing!)
The better question is, “what is going to happen to the end of Z?”.
I’ll remind the nerds and to the other nerds teach them that Dragon Ball Super take place during the 10 year time gap between the defeat of Majin Buu ( Kid Buu) and the end of Z when Goku take his new pupil, Uub, and flies away.
Now with 4 arcs completed in Super and the fifth one reaching the rising action, Toei does not have alot of time left til the end of Z. So alot of fan are wondering that ” Will Super go beyond the end of Z?”.
I say yes. Mainly, because I agree with MasakoX’s and Geekdom101’s predictions that the show will. The biggest evidence for their predictions is the fact that Super is making money and that amount of world building Toriyama, Toyotarou, and Toie that has gone in the making of Super. Like the Gods of Destruction, the 12 universes, the Alternate Timelines, and of course the Space Exploration of GT can also be taken into account.
Where would they go with Super? I think that first that there is no logical way for the new world of Dragon Ball Super to continue with the GT timeline. Due to the impact of the Gods, we have to consider them two different continuities.
The other thing, mentioned both MasakoX and Geekdom101, that the possibility of a Dragon Ball Next Generation. Hell, if Naruto ( now Boruto) and Jojo can do this, so can Dragon Ball. How we accomplish this? We will need a couple things.
First, Vegeta and Goku have to go. They will be missed and never be forgotten, but we fans do need something fresh. Fans are have been complaining the Super is the Goku and Vegeta show. Also, if Goku and Vegeta continue to be in the show, that means they have to get stronger. Eventually, they’ll be too strong and the series will begin to dull.
Next, We need Goten, Trunks, Pan, Bra, and Uub ( and possibly other offspring of the Z fighters) to become the leads. Yup, not Gohan. He needs to become Grandpa Gohan.
Also, we need new lore. New arcs. Guess what? That has already been done. Ever heard of Dragon Ball Online and Dragon Ball Heros? They influenced Dragon Ball Xenoverse 1 and 2.
They’re Games made in Japan and released only in the east, that have new future continuities of Dragon, after the End of Z and also include the end of GT.
In those continuities ( mainly in Dragon Ball Online) , a lot has happened.
- Gohan published a book on Ki control and martial arts that brought Ki control and training to the Public.
- Tien and Krillin have opened up new Crane and Hermit Schools, respectively
- Trunks and Goten founded the School “The Kikoukenjutsu Sword School (気功剣術, Kikōkenjutsu; lit. “Energy Control Fencing”)
- Goku and Vegeta, nearing the end of their days, leave Earth and have their final battle.
- Majin Buu makes his own Waifu and had babies. Thus, the Majins are now a newly populated race in the Galaxy.
- and so much more.

So yeah, they have a lot to work with to make Dragon Ball the Next Generation. Please note, that this is just FAN Theory. To date, there is no official statement on the possibility of this so-called ” Dragon Ball: the Next Generation”. We are just entertaining the thought.
My final thoughts:
Even if Dragon Ball ends on the TV, it will never leave our hearts. The best examples are in the community Today. Team FoursStar, Geekdom101, Qaaman’s land, and the others, Fan-made Manga, and much more.
And Always: Support the Official Release!
So guys what do you think, should Dragon Ball end soon? Or Is the possibility of a next Generation Z fighters just too good to pass on?
