  3. Have the right holders lost their passion for DB ?

Besides the Battle of Gods and Broly movies, it seems like the majority of projects we've gotten in this revival lack the passion present in the original run.

Resurrection F had little to no energy and was very dull, Super's anime suffered from terrible production and writing, Super's manga is just big fights and power ups without any of the story components that made DB what it is, Animation wise we've been stuck for 3 years with 10 minute monthly episodes of Heroes with the laziest of writing and minimal production value, and the next major project since Broly is a slice of life CGI movie that looks worse than ps2 cutscenes.

How did DB go from a franchise of top priority for everyone involved in the 80s and 90s to whatever it's become today ? What makes things even worse is how well other franchises are being handled by the very same right holders. I bring this up because the common belief is that there either isn't enough money or talent, however this doesn't seem to apply to other franchise, which leaves a lack of interest as the only logical reason to why the franchise has hit this new low.

People are nostalgic about db, this means that Toei doesn't even have to try in order to sell them product.
