I'm going to laugh if the manga is all we have to go on for so long, that by the time the anime returns, whatever outline Toriyama writes ends up completely invalidating one of Toyo's arcs because he's already forgotten it

What was the series anniversary?
January 2018 was the Kitaro series anniversary.

Anyways, yeah, April is less likely now but not completely out of the question. As mentioned Kitaro was announced in January and if April is the date of the return they could just be waiting until the movie comes out in more countries to make the announcement.
I'd set expectations on one of the following months to be safe though....
October 2019, January 2020, April 2020.
Hopefully we don't have to wait that long.

Do Toei even care about stuff like that? But they did announced Super after Resurrection 'F' came out here in the states, so it isn't impossible.

What the fuck, I woke up expecting to see reaction to the return of the show. I'm never listening to people who pretend they are in the know again.

Well, the merchandising sales actually grew in spite of no anime airing, so they're likely in no hurry for the next season.

That Toriyama quote is absolutely beautiful.

-openly and politely calls adult dragon ball fans manchildren (he's right tho)
-says that dragon ball is "nothing but fighting"
-A little bit of casual sexism thrown in



Toriyama never change my man.

EDIT:Does anyone else get the impression that the new work he's talking about isn't Dragonball related?

You can tell he'd love to do a none fighting focused arc like the first in the series. But the fans would hate it. I wouldn't, do it for me Toriyama

Yeah, it comes off as a little depressing, like he still loves his baby but he's forced into something he doesn't really like. You can see he kinda gets comfort from being involved with the narrative and doing designs but he just doesn't care about the action one bit.

yeah it's a series trapped by its popularity really.

A lot of not-fighting and too little emphasis on Goku?
Namek and Android arcs didn't have much fighting? Really?

There isn't a period on Namek where you could watch four consecutive episodes without someone getting into a fight. The over emphasis on Goku in Super has been a source of complaint and led to the Tournament of Power.

The only real lull in the Android saga was the period after 18 embarrassed Vegeta and then Piccolo fought 17. Although I can't remember if Piccolo had a skirmish with Imperfect Cell before that
