■About DRAGON BALL
The Dragon Ball phenomenon began in 1984 when Japan’s well-known manga from Akira Toriyama premiered in Shueisha’s “Weekly Shonen Jump” – becoming a top ranked title throughout its 10 and a half years of publication. Since then, the manga’s popularity has continued to grow with an astonishing record of 260 million copies sold worldwide and counting. And with Dragon Ball’s ever-increasing popularity, it has expanded beyond manga to include TV animation, movies, games, and merchandising.
Dragon Ball’s popularity kept its momentum, and in 2013, the release of its serial movies was restarted for the first time in 17 years to much acclaim. Then in 2015, the author Akira Toriyama started the series “Dragon Ball Super.” In 2022, the movie “Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO” was released, earning not only the number 1 spot at the Japanese box office in its first weekend, but also number 1 at the worldwide box office in its first week. In the fall of 2024, on the 40th anniversary of Dragon Ball’s serialization, a new series will make its global release, making its mark in the history of Dragon Ball, which has continued to evolve to aim for greater heights!
