Hey guys. Each and everyone of us is getting really excited as the Tournament of Power is drawing to a close. But, there’s a thing that makes fans more excited than seeing new power ups or fights. This thing is…well it’s not a thing but it is actually the confirmation of a power or an incident being canon.
Fans love it when something Dragon Ball Super is officially confirmed as canon. Akira Toriyama’s iconic franchise has lots of parts so getting a confirmation is a really big deal. Whatever the anime shows, it is confirmed by Toriyama at some point. Recently, two executives with Dragon Ball Super traveled to Barcelona for an annual anime convention. Hiroyuki Sakurada and Kimitoshi Chioka talked with the fans about how the behind-the-scenes work at Toei Animation goes.
During this time, they also confirmed a major thing about the anime. The entire thing was translated on social media in which the producer and director were asked if Toei has the power to change Toriyama’s drafts. The creator came back to Dragon Ball just for its ongoing anime, and the artist has given its team episode drafts. The fans have always wondered how much does Toei Animation actually change the anime from Toriyama’s original work to make Dragon Ball Super more exciting for the fans.
However, the duo of the show’s executives laughed off the idea. “Does Toei have power to change Toriyama’s draft?” Both laugh “Basically not” They might make requests, but “you can’t tell God to change.” According to the two, Toei doesn’t have the power to change any of the things from Toriyama’s story.
The executives said the studio may “make [change] requests” but “you can’t tell God to change.” As it’s time to reach for the conclusion, we have now confirmed that Toriyama’s authority is supreme when it comes to the anime. That’s it from me. I hope you enjoyed the post.
