What is the Dragon Ball Kakumei anime going to be about?

The Dragon Ball Kakumei is a doujinshi, which is a piece of fan-made work by the creator Reenko. It follows the story after the Tournament of Power, and the events which unfold between Goku and Beerus. It was when Universe 7 won the tournament and it led to Android 17 getting a chance at using the dragon balls to make a wish. This led to huge developments as the latter chose to restore the universes which were already erased.
