Funimation’s continuing to work on bringing out the Dragon Ball Super anime series on home video (and Toonami) and we’re just pining for more new episodes in the future. Until then, however, we’re getting to revisit everything on home video and now the Dragon Ball Super: Part Nine release set is scheduled for an October 8th, 2019 debut. With that coming up soon, Funimation has a new trailer to highlight what’s involved with it, which includes the clean opening and closings as well as a new bonus with Dragon Ball Super: Twitter Q&A with Sarah Wiedenheft and Dawn Bennett video.
Toei Animation is animating the series that comes from a story concept from Akira Toriyama. The debut of the series marks the first new series for the property in eighteen years. The show is being broadcast in Asia, Germany, and elsewhere through various agreements set up.
The cast includes Masako Nozawa as Son Goku, Son Gohan and Son Goten, Ryo Horikawa as Vegeta, Hiromi Tsuru as Bulma, Takeshi Kusao as Trunks, Mayumi Tanaka as Krillin, Masaharu Satou as Kame-Sen’nin, Toshio Furukawa as Piccolo, Naoko Watanabe as Chi-Chi, Yuko Minaguchi as Videl, Unshou Ishizuka as Mr. Satan, Kôzô Shioya as Majin Buu, Kouichi Yamadera as God of Destruction Beerus and Masakazu Morita as Whis.
Plot Concept: The Tournament of Power rages on. The 2nd Universe’s warriors of love are out for blood, Frieza makes his move, and Goku’s attention turns to Jiren. Unflinching resolve faces immeasurable power, as Saiyan and Pride Trooper test each other’s capabilities. But when Goku’s stamina starts to dwindle, can Instinct save him? Time is winding down, fighters are falling out, and the battles are heating up!
