Dragon Ball Super Announces Return To Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Goku has found himself in numerous fights to the death over the years as the star of the Dragon Ball franchise, but he may not have appeared in a weirder place than the Macy’s Day Parade, as Super Saiyan Blue Goku has been part of the spectacle for a few years now. Now, before the Thanksgiving Day parade in 2022, Toei Animation confirms that the “Goku balloon” will return to soar above the citizens below, as reporters and television personalities continue to struggle to pronounce “Super Saiyan”.

“Super Saiyan Blue” has been an important part of Dragon Ball Super since it first premiered during the fight the Z-Fighters had against the resurrected Frieza resurrection of F, with Goku and Vegeta realizing that they had to change the name after the failure of their original title, “Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan”. While transformations like the original Super Saiyan came about thanks to a combination of strength and rage, and Super Saiyan God came about thanks to a gathering of Saiyans, Super Saiyan Blue was a different story as reaching this level was just a matter of training seemed to be as far as fans know.

Dragon Ball: Super Saiyan Balloon

Toei Animation shared the big news that: Dragon Ball Super would once again return to the Macy’s Day Parade for its 96th Thanksgiving extravaganza, joining some other pop culture icons, though the anime’s showings are generally quite small compared to the other North American cartoon characters:

Super Saiyan Blue hasn’t been used nearly as much in the past during the present days of the Shonen franchise as Goku has continued to work on perfecting Ultra Instinct and Vegeta has dived into his latest transformation learned from the god of destruction Beerus, known as Ultra Ego. Currently, after the big battles that took place during the Granolah The Survivor Arc, the manga is on hiatus, although the news could come during the Jump Festa event this winter.

What other anime franchises do you want to see become part of the Macy’s Day Parade? Do you think the Goku balloon will ever be changed from Super Saiyan Blue to Ultra Instinct?
