If you haven’t heard, there’s been a rash of issues going on with the anime world as of late. Not the least of which is that there has been a serious hack that has hurt or even crippled the development of certain animes. Leading to various serious delaying new episodes and premieres. The latest to fall to those delays was that of Dragon Ball Super, who was a little over a month away from the release of their next movie, Super Hero, in Japan.
After making the announcement of the delay, it was made clear that there wasn’t an immediate “new date for return” as is tradition when delays like this happen. And that, naturally, left the fanbase in a bit of a sticky wicket. Because if there’s no new release date, what have they to look forward to?
Well, on Twitter, one fan noticed that one of the animation team decided to put a positive spin on things to help ease tensions:
SUPER HERO Animation Director, Chikashi Kubota states that they’ll be using this extra time to improve the movie’s quality and asks everyone to look forward to it! https://t.co/zTW5cBZ8Jw

That indeed is a positive take on the matter. And it is true that if they have even the tiniest bit more time to work on the movie, they could make it look even better. The team had been dropping a lot of teasers as of late, mainly to show off the “3D anime” style that the film was attempting to use for the first time. As a result of that, it’s fair that they would want to polish that as much as possible before the release of the film in Japan and beyond.
The plot of Dragon Ball Super is that the Red Ribbon Army has returned, and is going after the Z-Fighters. Piccolo is ambushed by one of them, and they also kidnap Gohan’s daughter Pan. Others like Goku, Vegeta, Beerus, and even Broly are set to make an appearance as well.
We’ll let you know when the new release date is made known.
