Dragon Ball Super: Plot
Dragon Ball Super is supposed to be a sequel to the original Dragon Ball franchise with its overall plot outline written by franchise creator Akira Toriyama. The manga is illustrated by Toyotarou, with story and editing by Toriyama, and began serialization in Shueisha’s Shonen manga magazine V Jump in June 2015.
The series chronicles the adventures of Goku during the ten-year time skip after the defeat of Majin Buu. Following a retelling of the events of the films Battle of Gods (2013) and Resurrection F(2015), where Goku attains the powers of a god, he must learn to use these newly discovered powers under the gods of his universe.
Six months after Goku defeated Majin Buu, he worked as a farmer to support his family, but their time of peace was short as this was when the God of Destruction, Beerus awoke after decades from his slumber. Beerus, along with his Angelassistant and teacher, Whis seeks a prophesized warrior known as the Super Saiyan God, threatening to destroy the Earth if he loses to him. Goku transforms into the Super Saiyan God with the help of Vegeta, Gohan, Goten, Trunks, and the unborn Pan in Videl’s womb. Goku battles Beerus but was trounced by him, but his efforts appease Beerus, and he spares the planet.
After the battle with Beerus, the story follows Universe 6 where Goku and Vegeta’s training is interrupted with the arrival of Champa and Vados. It is revealed that there are twelve universes in all, and Goku and Vegeta are from Universe Seven, and Champa is the God of Destruction of Universe 6.

The next part of Super following this takes place in Universe 6 with the Dragon team searching for the Super Dragon Balls.
