Japanese Title: スーパードラゴンボールヒーローズ
A promotional anime for the Dragon Ball Heroes game. The series will show the Prison Planet arc from the Universe Mission.
What do you expect from a Dragon Ball anime? I usually think of a very powerful villain that will force Goku and the rest to push their limits so they can win and save the day. Which means awesome battles, colorful characters, and maybe something that resembles a plot to give meaning to the fights. Super Dragon Ball Heroes has all that and something extra: it’s short (10-minutes per episode) and is not part of the canon universe (I am guessing here, but it’s a pretty safe bet). That means you can enjoy it without fussing about the details. It’s a promotional anime based on a super-popular smartphone game and it doesn’t even hide its purpose: you can read the words ‘promotional anime’ on the top right of the screen along with the game’s logo. That doesn’t mean that the anime is second-rate. The animation is very Dragon Ball, as is the catchy opening theme.
In a nutshell: Trunks is lost. Goku, Vegeta, and Mai have to go to a weird planet called Prison Planet to find him. The arch-villain Fu has gathered the greatest warriors from across realities to fight for a chance to escape. To do that, they must gather 7 special dragon balls.
If you are a Dragon Ball fan, this is a no-brainer. At least, you will have some fun watching characters from the DB universe fighting each other.
