It would make us fans of the franchise very happy.
Dragon Ball is one of the most important entertainment franchises, which has managed, despite the years, to remain one of the largest in the sector. This is not for less, and it is that it is not only a popular series and now, but it was one of the great culprits of popularizing anime as a medium. For this reason, and despite the fact that today there are other more popular franchises, Akira Toriyama’s work is still held in high esteemconsidering it as one of the best anime ever.
This is especially important considering that we haven’t had any anime from this franchise for quite some time. Yes, the Dragon Ball Super manga is still active, and the movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero was released not long ago, but In itself we cannot say that there is any anime on broadcast.
Due to the latter, fans have been waiting for a long time for the return of Dragon Ball Super, in which they adapt the subsequent arcs of the manga, that is, those that come after the multiversal tournament, but it seems that it never arrives. Even so, now it seems that we can hope for the return of Dragon Ball as a series, although we still don’t know anything about Dragon Ball Super in particular.
Hope is the last thing you lose
Now, some statements have come out that can give us some hope in this regard, although of course, given that not an official confirmationWe must be as cautious as possible.
Specifically, we are referring to the fact that Chikashi Kubota, one of the animators of the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie, has expressed interest in working on a Dragon Ball remake, if Toei Animation itself is interested in the project. . This opens up a very interesting number of possibilities, because although for the sequel there is Dragon Ball Z Kai, a poorly cared remastering, the original Dragon Ball has never received similar treatmentand the reality is that the years weigh on him.
Chikashi Kubota revealed he’s interested in working on a Dragon Ball remake if Toei Animation ever decides to do one, he mentioned the same to SH Producer Norihiro Hayashida as well!

Even so, and although the project makes a lot of sense, we must be cautious, because we don’t know if he was referring to the entire franchise, and therefore to making a reboot, or simply talking about making a remake of the first series. Also, most likely this is just a personal wish, and not something you have discussed with your superiors.
