Although the Japanese animated television series "Dragon Ball Super" has ended, the franchise still lives on. While waiting for the release of the upcoming movie, some fans have been re-watching episodes of the anime. Others are just keeping their eyes on specific details and leaks about the movie.

But there is good news for fans of Goku and the Z-fighters who are located in the United States and Canada. The cast will be having their first live "Dragon Ball" tour, which means that there is no need to travel all the way to Japan anymore just to have a meet and greet with Goku. Last month, Toei Animation announced that they are planning to introduce the live tour. It appears their plan is now finalized as the tour kicks-off in July of this year.


What can we expect from the tour?

Where are the tour locations

Toei Animation will be hitting seven different cities, each symbolizing the seven Dragon Balls. They will visit one city at a time starting with San Diego in July of this year, which is just in time for the San Diego Comic Con.

Aside from that, the "Dragon Ball" live tour will also be coming to Washington D.C. and Toronto in August. Meanwhile, fans of the anime in Portland will see them in September. On the other hand, New York City fans will get the chance to see Goku and his friends live in October.

As of this writing, these are the only locations announced. The company said they will announce the remaining locations and dates in the near future.


What fans will see in the tour

The tour will feature rare, never seen before content. Each stop on the calendar will be customized for every city they will visit. The official website of the "Dragon Ball" tour states there will be exclusive items during the tour and everyone will get a one-of-a-kind experience.

However, other information about the tour has not been released as of yet. Fans will have to wait for the official announcement of the exact date, time, and venue.

Among the sponsors that will be part of the tour are Dragon Ball Super Card Game, Tamashii Nations, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Bandai Shokugan, Dragon Ball Legends, and more. This means that fans can grab amazing items from the stops in the United States and Canada.


The tour is a good way to excite fans about the upcoming film, "Dragon Ball Super: The Movie," which will be released in December of 2018. Apart from that, there is a huge possibility that Toei Animation has more projects on the horizon, especially since they already created a separate department for the franchise earlier this year.
