What to expect from a potential Dragon Ball Kakumei Anime adaptation?

Dragon Ball Kakumei anime adaptation is in the works and it was confirmed by its creator Reenko a few weeks ago. Reenko shared a visual on Twitter that presented a first look at Goku and Beerus. The doujinshi which is potentially going to receive an anime adaptation is going to be a project that will be completely undertaken by underdogs and amateur creators, without any assistance from any major studio.

What can we expect from the plot of the Dragon Ball Kakumei anime?

The Dragon Ball Kakumei is a doujinshi, which is a fan-made work by Reenko. It picks up after the Tournament of Power and the events that transpire between Goku and Beerus. It was when Universe 7 won the tournament, allowing Android 17 to use the dragon balls to make a wish.

This resulted in massive changes when the latter chose to restore the universes that had already been obliterated. Additionally, the six universes destroyed by Zeno which were restored, also brought back Universe 19, a region which has been manifested with powerful warriors who are strong enough to defeat Zeno and the angels.

The Dragon Ball Kakumei anime will follow the same plot as the manga. Although it is experimental and premature, it will not succeed in the manga and will not attempt to take over the tale in any way. Furthermore, the characters were influenced by Shintani, the original Character Designer of the Dragon Ball Super Broly film. As of now, only the first chapter of the manga is slated to be adapted into an anime.

Is the Dragon Ball Kakumei anime an original manga release?

The Dragon Ball Kakumei anime is not an original manga by Akira Toriyama. Neither has it been published in Viz Media or Shueisha, nor does it run on V Jump.

  • It is basically a doujinshi, which can be translated as a non-canon story of sorts generally written and created, as well as structured, by fans.
  • The doujinshi was canceled after the third chapter a few years ago, but the step to undertake a Dragon Ball Kakumei anime adaptation might also lead to a revitalization of the manga once again.

What will the characters of Dragon Ball Kakumei anime look like?

As we are aware the Dragon Ball Kakumei is inspired by the works of Shintani and his designs for the Dragon Ball Super Broly movie, Reenko has also announced that Poisson Labo will be taking over the entirety of the animation for the first episode. This will be experimental in nature and further episodes will be based on the performance of the same.

Poisson Labo has been associated with Dragon Ball Kakumei for a while now. He has remained a critically acclaimed artist and designer by Reenko, and thus the latter believes that he will be the right person for the role of animating the series.

  • The characters in the manga however differ from the visuals, which also raised several concerns among fans.
  • But Reenko and the team went on to justify this statement by saying that such complex and complicated detailing of characters like the manga is not feasible for their team without any assistance or guidance from a major studio.

When will Dragon Ball Kakumei anime be released?

As of currently, no release dates for the Dragon Ball Kakumei anime adaptation have been announced. However, Reenko recently announced that it is simply the first episode that is in the works. Because this is a solo project undertaken by the artist Poisson Labo, it is planned to be released near the end of 2023.

Reenko also stated that their rumored online anime adaption is not the same as this project, which is exclusive and independent in nature.

Conclusion

Fans are excited about the incoming of the Dragon Ball Kakumei anime, primarily due to the fact that it doesn’t obsess much with shipping and character exaggeration. What it basically does is that it domesticates the expectations from a doujinshi and puts it into a standard perspective, thereby making the entire plot seem very natural and not distinct and distant from the original.
