Dragon Ball Daima: New Promotional Image Stirs Up Fan Frenzy

Dragon Ball Daima: New Promotional Image Stirs Up Fan Frenzy

The hype is real, folks! The highly anticipated anime series, “Dragon Ball Daima,” is set to premiere in the fall of 2024. While we don’t have an exact date yet, it’s safe to say that we’re less than six months away from the moment we’ve all been waiting for. However, the promotional efforts from Toei Animation have been, well, less than stellar.

It’s been nearly four months since the last official trailer for “Dragon Ball Daima” was released, featuring Goku in all his glory. Fans were led to believe that similar promotional content would be rolled out for the other characters. But alas, that hasn’t been the case, and Toei’s promotional actions have left much to be desired.

A New Image, But Not Much New to See

Feast your eyes on the latest promotional image for “Dragon Ball Daima” (courtesy of SupaChronicles). If you’re experiencing a sense of déjà vu, you’re not alone:

The situation with these “Dragon Ball Daima” images is equal parts amusing and immensely frustrating. Let’s dive into the most important aspects of this image, because there’s a lot to unpack:

  • First things first, while this is presented as a promotional image for “Dragon Ball Daima,” it doesn’t do the anime any favors. 😅
  • As many fans of Akira Toriyama’s work have pointed out, the image is essentially a collage of PNGs, featuring the infamous Goku with a staff. You know, the same Goku we’ve been seeing over and over again for who knows how many months. 💀
  • To add insult to injury, the Shenron model used in the image is from “Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.” So, it’s not like we’re getting an up-close look at the dragon in the new “Dragon Ball” anime. 😶

La nouvelle concernant Dragon Ball Daima n’a pas du tout le goût d’une nouvelle.

There is, however, one aspect of this “update” that can be considered somewhat relevant. “Dragon Ball Daima” is still slated for a fall 2024 release. This means that despite the unfortunate passing of Akira Toriyama and the scarcity of news about the anime, there’s been no change of course. 🤗

In all honesty, it’s baffling who at Toei Animation is greenlighting these decisions. The image is clearly just a way to keep “Dragon Ball Daima” from fading into obscurity, but is it really that hard to create a Key Visual like so many other anime do throughout the months to give the show a bit of freshness?

Don’t get me wrong, I have no doubt that as the premiere date draws closer, we’ll be inundated with promotional materials that are actually worthwhile. But until then, this whole situation remains a strange and perplexing move on Toei Animation’s part.

Stay tuned for more updates on “Dragon Ball Daima,” and here’s hoping that the next piece of promotional content is a bit more, well, new.
