Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Plot-

Best Upcoming Anime 2022
Image Source: comicbook

The new Dragon Ball Super movies are going to be the second instalment in the movie franchise for this series. The first movie was titled Dragon Ball Super: Broly which brought back Boly from DBZ and followed up on what Frieza had said about causing troubles after his resurrection.

We have got the official confirmation that the new movie is going to be a sequel and will continue from where we left off in the previous movie. However, we need to keep in mind that Toei Animation has announced that there will be no direct connection to the first movie.

So the rumours that have been going around about Broly being back again may not be true to some extent. Since there has been no confirmation of the story or a trailer to give the fans a glimpse, there have been a lot of theories going around. The most plausible theory is the Moro Arc being covered in the Dragon Ball Movie 2022.

Although this is a logical idea, the production team will know better not to cram the whole Moro story into a two-hour film. The Moro was significantly longer and a second season is needed to beautifully craft the story for the viewers.

One thing that has been confirmed by Akira Toriyima himself is that we are going to get some exciting new visuals that have not been introduced in the franchise till now. 

We may also possibly get to see a whole new antagonist being introduced in Dragon Ball 2022 that has not appeared in the manga till now. The other major possibility remains of Granolah making an appearance in the anime movie.

We all know that Granolah has an interlinked destructive past with the Saiyans and a movie regarding that plot would serve as the perfect way to ease him into the storyline with his main arc coming up after the Moro saga.

Another character that we have to be on the lookout for is Trunks for the future. There is no reason to write off the possibility of time travel being involved again. 

This concludes our huge list of upcoming anime in 2022. Of course, the main focus is going to be on the Dragon Ball Super movie 2022 and it remains to be seen whether it can deliver according to the expectations of the fans.

With a lot of big titles releasing next year some of the movies and series like Ao Ashi and Jujutsu Kaisen may totally go under the radar.

The Jujutsu Kaisen Movie is also something to look forward to as it depicts the events that happened surrounding Yuta Okkotsu during his first year.

It also gives a demonstration of Suguru Geto’s strength and the two old friends were pitted against each other.

Besides Jujutsu Kaisen, viewers are definitely looking forward to the release of Ao Ashi to watch whether it can overtake Haikyuu in terms of fanbase and popularity.

The recent rise of sports anime indicates that titles like Blue Lock can also be animated in the near future. This is something that many fans have been waiting for after the huge success of Hajime no Ippo and Slam Dunk.
