The Tokyo Skytree + Viz North America Tour is a special promotional event that is running from November 1, 2018 until January 7, 2019 as a promotion for the twentieth overall Dragon Ball film, Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

Importance[]

During the event, the official canon history of the Dragon Ball franchise was revealed. The expose included a History of Dragon Ball timeline confirming the events of the Dragon Ball Super manga to be the "canon sequel" (正統続編, seitō zokuhen; Literally meaning "legitimate sequel") to Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball manga.[1][2]

  2. TwitterLogo @Herms98 (Todd Frankenship) on Twitter "This is the same wall display Viz translated, right? In which case it seems the Japanese phrasing for "canon sequel" is 正統続編, if that hadn't been established already. You could also translate it as "proper sequel" or "legitimate sequel". I think translating it as "canon sequel" is reasonable, if only because that's how those concepts are typically phrased in English these days. That is, it's not like Shueisha and/or Toei suddenly started using the word "canon". Rather, they said "this is a legit sequel" (in slightly fancy marketing copy language) and that got translated into English using the word "canon" because that's how English fandom talks. While GT is typically called a 続編, to my knowledge it's never been referred to as a 正統続編 the way Super is here."
