    Dragon Ball GT is not canon, so there currently is no canonical continuation of the story after Goku flies away with Oob at the end of the original series.

    Therefore, I wonder what plans Toriyama has in the case that the story eventually goes beyond that point, and, more specifically, what plans he has for the new generation of heroes (Goten, Trunks, Pan, Bra, and Oob), if the story were to continue.

    What does everyone else say about this? Has Toriyama ever revealed his plans for if the series continues beyond the arrival of Oob?

    The only next gen will be oob

    Read end of z portion of the manga. Goten, trunks, bra and gohan give 0 fucks about fighting and pan who has interest (shes only 4 tho) gets left by goku to go train oob

    Use the other universes instead so simply using new characters introduced in Super and not the rubbish young characters on Earth.

    Had Toriyama actually cared and been a competent writer he could've made the new generation great and enjoyable.

    The worst decision of Toriyama's life was to just only mainly focus on Goku and Vegeta.

    Wasn't there an interview where he basically said he never planned ahead or looked at how it would affect previous chapters?

    I could have sworn I read that somewhere.

    In any case, yeah I doubt he's planning anything with the Next Generation really. I certainly don't think they'll ever surpass Goku and Vegeta.

    If Toriyama had wanted to do a next gen, Gohan would have taken his father's place. Goten and Trunks both have had easy lives and uninteresting backstories.

    Uh huh...*looks at Jojo's Bizarre Adventure*

    I wouldn't say worst for him because he gets butts in the seats but it could be more if he focused on the others too.

    This. He just ended the series on a "the adventures will never end" note, he never planned to actually use Pan and Oob as actual characters

    Since the entire main cast seems to be either not aging or getting younger, where's the rush?

    We could have discussed a future generation if Gohan was allowed to carry the mantle after the Cell Games. Toriyama is stuck on Goku, so as long as DB continues itll just be him and his hair going through the whole color spectrum for new amazing transformations.

    Toriyama was and will be a genius for ever . Part of his geniality was to not plan things in advance too far ,working under pressure and open to do fast changes on the plots .. as far as we know .
    It has not sense for him to start to plan now , it doesn’t matter if there’s no pressure at this moment . He and his assessor team are not taking any risk and they don’t have a big rush , it’s not a good combination for this kind of genius, but it’s better than nothing right ?
