Fans waiting for more information on the upcoming anime TV series Dragon Ball Super get a breather, as new details of the story of the series' first episode have been revealed.
The revelation comes from the August issue of V-Jump magazine that Anime News Network accessed giving us just a hint and more of what is incoming for this Toei Animation's TV series, which has generated big interest among Dragon Ball fans.
We now know that the series will be taking place after the battle with Majin Buu.
The recently released movie, "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F" will play important part in the series' story, with the report confirming "plot elements" that are tied to the movie.
The return of Beerus and Whis characters has now been confirmed. These characters were seen in "Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods" and "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F" movies. Fans will see them as regular characters in the series. It must also be noted that a recent poster posted on the official website revealed Beerus and Whis characters. However, there were two more characters that resembled Beerus and Whis in the poster. There is no information on them yet.
Below is the preview of the first episode's story that the magazine revealed:
