Dragon Ball Super‘s Universe Survival arc is without a doubt the biggest arc in the series, and one fan awesomely re-imagined a Universe Survival arc spin of one of the biggest Dragon Ball Zarcs, the Namek saga.
YouTube user Daolin released a special animation placing Dragon Ball Z within Dragon Ball Super‘s anime opening for the Universe Survival arc. The animation and characters of the Namek saga fit so well with Kiyoshi Hikawa’s “Limit-Break x Survivor” that you could easily imagine it being a theme for Dragon Ball Z itself.
There are creative replacements for the number of characters in the original opening, so you’ll get cool spins like highlighting Freeza’s many forms, notable Saiyan soldiers, the Ginyu Force, and Goku fighting Freeza in place of the Goku and Jiren fight in the original opening is just many of the inspired choices here.
Dragon Ball Super is currently airing its English dub on Adult Swim during the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m. It is also available to stream on Funimation and Amazon Video. The Japanese language release of the series is complete and available to stream on Funimation, VRV, and Crunchyroll.
If you want to catch up with the English dub, the first 52 episodes of Dragon Ball Super are now available to stream on Funimation now, VRV, and available to purchase on Amazon Video as well. The 52 episodes span the full range of what has aired in North America and cover the “Battle of Gods” arc, “Revival of F” arc, the “Universe 6” arc, and bringing the series right up to the current TV airings of the “Future Trunks” arc.
The first Dragon Ball Super film, now titled Dragon Ball Super: Broly, is set to release this December in Japan and has released its first trailer. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the “origins of Goku’s power,” and has been confirmed to feature a rebooted take on the famous raging Saiyan Broly. The series will get a major makeover when its first film drops, and fans can thank Naohiro Shintani for that.
The beloved animator was brought in by Toei Animation to oversee the movie and was approved by series creator Akira Toriyama. He’ll be contributing to the film’s script and character designs. Fans will get their first look at the new film during the Dragon Ball North America Tour and San Diego Comic-Con, as well.
