    I'm confused is it the original dragon ball or dragon ball z the new chapters are going to be written for?

    Also DO WANT!

    I'm not really sure what to think of this.
    is it just DB/DBZ or something new?

    Assuming it means DBZ... that's pretty freaking awesome.

    They're two different series, except Z was the only one popular in the U.S.

    Actually no they are not. Only the anime continues as Z after the last touramenet with chi-chi. In the original manga it was always called dragon ball. They're was never a name change. The Anime dub hit before the translated manga chapters taking place after time skip were completed, thus when the next manga chapters started here in the US it was misnamed DBZ.

    Akira Toriyama had nothing to do with DBGT, it's not at all canon.

    Chances are, whatever Toriyama is writing might have something to do with Dragon Ball Online.

    Doesn't really matter to me which series it is. It atleast means eventually we'll get some new quality anime, instead of just rehash like DBKai.

    Even though I considered GT complete and utter crap (it was entirely too confusing, I prefer the original Dragon Ball series better, it was cuter and was more lighthearted), I think it can be considered somewhat canon. Toriyama did not write the story, but from what I've heard he strictly oversaw the production of the series so he did have something to do with the series, sorta.

    How much longer is he going to milk that cash cow of a crappy franchise to death? Isn't it time he retired the series for good and let it rest?
