After the debut of the latest franchise-related film by Dragon Ball Super Naohiro Shintani, who brought back the character of Bardak and Broly, has gained some popularity within the dedicated community. According to various sources, the designer would also play the same role in the much-rumored super sequel.

It seems that the move from TOEI animation Totally upset the artistic style of the anime in DB Super: Broly wasn't dictated by experiment, but rather by a careful plan to revive the franchise in more modern ways. In fact, Shintani seems to have worked together back in 2017 on the occasion of the TOEI event Dragon Ball Z: The Real 4D.

As you can see from the video attached at the top of the page, it appears the famous animator personally animated the clip in 2D, or at least provided the character design. If that were the case, Shintani would not only have worked on the franchise prior to the movie's debut in November 2018, but would have been personally involved in creating the new character designs. Consequently, we cannot rule out that Naohiro Shintani's participation in the franchise is part of TOEI Animation's long plan to entrust the new generation of the brand to their hands, rather than their hands Tadayoshi Yamamuro. Also, who knows that this video can only be a reference to the new visual formula that should be accompanied Dragon Ball Super 2 in the next month.

As for you, what do you think of the role of Shintani instead? Let us know what you think about this with a comment below.
