Fans of the Dragon Ball franchise can now look forward to watching a subtitled Dragon Ball Super on Crunchyroll, DAISUKI and AnimeLab. Toei Animation announced that it will begin on October 22. Although the anime premiered in Japan in summer 2015, it was not licensed to air in other countries. Toei Animation’s announcement means that anime fans in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and South Africa can now watch Dragon Ball Super legally.
On October 22, all three streaming sites will be simulcasting the 63rd episode, “Don’t Define Saiyan Cells! The Curtain Rises on Vegeta’s Intense Battle!!”, at the same time it premieres in Japan. They will also have all the episodes of the most recent story arc (starting with episode 47) available on the sites. The arc involves Future Trunks and Goku Black.
If you want to watch the series from the start, the earlier episodes will be released on Crunchyroll, DAISUKI and AnimeLab, ten episodes a week, starting on October 30.
Dragon Ball Super is the true sequel to
Dragon Ball Z. It takes place after the defeat of Majin Boo in the original storyline. Any events that occurred in Dragon Ball GT will be disregarded, as it was never established as canon. In fact, Dragon Ball GT was not written by the Dragon Ball franchise’s original creator, Akira Toriyama.
