Hello! I am Kitahata, the editor-in-chief at MANGA.TOKYO. I live in Japan and turn press releases from Japanese companies into articles that are easy for those outside of Japan to understand. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
The opening theme will be ‘move on! Ibara Michi’ by GRANRODEO. The single will come out on 2 August 2017. The artist of the ending was announced to be Luck Life. The opening was used in the new trailer:
Son Goku and Douji Konzen’s new character style and staff information were also revealed. The pre-screening was announced to be held on 17 June 2017 with Toshihiko Seki (voice of Genjo Sanzo), Soichiro Hoshi (Son Goku), Hiroaki Hirata (Sha Gojyo), and Akira Ishida (Cho Hakkai) as guests.
As the broadcasting date comes closer, we will get more information on the anime.
The nephew of Kanzeon Bosatsu. He has a high status among the heavenly people, but his work was mainly to sort documents, of which he got tired quite soon. He then meets Son Goku by chance. Kenren and Tenpo also influence his life and change it.
Born from a rock egg on Kakayama mountain, Son Goku is an ungodly creature, neither a human nor a yokai. He was brought before Kanzeon Bosatsu because of the Konparume, which are said to be a good source for luck. He is an innocent boy with a lot of energy, getting excited over anything.
General of Heaven’s Western Army. He is a brat that just was turned into a general, overflows with courage, looks over his friends and is liked by his subordinates. Since he doesn’t like hiding behind pretty words, he doesn’t always show the respect that is needed, even to his superior, the Dragon King.
Heaven’s Field Marshal. Because he is an excellent soldier, the Dragon King puts him at the top, but in spite of his status, he works mainly as an adjutant. He is known to be kind of a nerd and always acts in his own time. He hates cleaning up, so his place is always a mess. He often brings back stuff from the lower world.
