dragon ball is a franchise that has been one of the most well-known brands worldwide for almost 40 years. Akira Toriyama's work brings in billions of dollars in profits for Bandai Namco every year, and 2022 proved so profitable that Goku and his companions were able to surpass the revenues of other famous brands.

According to the latest data released by the company, which you can see at the bottom of the page along with guidance through the end of the fiscal year, Dragon Ball would have fetched a record 65.7 billion yen collected through the third quarter, becoming the first of the entire Bandai Namco, followed by Mobile Suit Gundam with 62.4 billion, while Eiichiro Oda's ONE PIECE took third place with 44.1 billion.

An extraordinary result, which, however, is not reflected in the goods where the mecha was invented by Yoshiyuki Tomino They're still unbeaten at 30.1 billion, and Oda's invented pirates are currently around 12.3. The forecasts, also given the worldwide success of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, are obvious 130 billion yen before the end of the yearan extraordinary result for the series that could grow in the following years thanks to the possible return of the anime.

Finally we remind you that Dragon Ball 1 was sold for 1200 dollars but turned out to be fake and we leave you a new figurine dedicated to Piccolo.
