The official website for the Dragon Ball Super television anime series announced on Sunday that the Batten Showjo Tai female idol group (pictured at right) will perform the show's new ending theme song "Yokayoka Dance" ("yokayoka" means "It's fine" in Fukuoka dialect). The new song will premiere in July.
Stardust Promotion's Fukuoka branch represents the group. The group formed in June 2015 and made their major debut in April. The average age of its members is 14. "Yokayoka Dance" will be the group's second single.
Dragon Ball Super premiered in Japan in July 2015 on Fuji TV and other channels. Toonami Asia announced in November that it will show the "English-language world premiere" of Dragon Ball Super in Southeast Asia and India in mid-2016.
The anime entered the "Future Trunks Arc" in the show's 47th episode, which premiered on June 12. Original creator Akira Toriyama is plotting the story and designing the new characters for the arc, including Future Trunks' design. The arc's new enemy is called "Goku Black."
