About Dragon Ball Super
Arguably the biggest and most influential anime franchise of the last several decades, Dragon Ball’s latest series continues the story from the wildly popular manga of the same name, and has been highly anticipated by U.S. fans as soon as the series was announced and started airing in Japan last year.
“We’re thrilled that this licensing partnership with Toei Animation means that Crunchyroll will provide American fans access to Dragon Ball Super,” said Crunchyroll Co-Founder and General Manager Kun Gao. “Crunchyroll has always strived to be a beacon for anime fans to watch the shows they love through safe and legal means, and now that Dragon Ball Super will become available on our platform, fans no longer have to resort to drastic means to find out how the story continues after decades of waiting for a reboot.”
“Crunchyroll has long been a valued partner and we’re excited to present Dragon Ball Super to its vibrant community,” said Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation Inc. “The amount of work and imagination that went into creating Dragon Ball Super is unprecedented and we appreciate the awesome contributions of Mr. Toriyama and our team at Toei.”
