A new Dragon Ball anime has been green-lit. The new series will be based upon the Dragon Ball: Episode of Bardock spin-off manga and will tell more of the history of Son Goku’s father the legendary Saiyan known as Bardock.

The spin-off manga was serialised back in August in the V Jump magazine and ran for 3 chapters. It is unknown what the difference between this  new anime series and the previous Dragon Ball: Bardock, the Father of Goku, OVA special will be as of posting.

    for a second I thought it was really new DBZ series.

    But its Dragon Ball.
    My question is: will it be like Dragon Ball classic or be like DBZ but with a different name and set around Bardock’s story?

    Thanks for breaking the news:)
