Dragon Ball Super English Dub Arrives at Crunchyroll

The dub for the entire Dragon Ball Super anime series has just joined Crunchyroll.

The anime started in July 2015 and concluded in March 2018, consisting of 131 episodes. Its English dub first became available through Funimation’s streaming service in late 2016. The dub also aired on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim cartoon block, starting in early 2017. Though Funimation bought Crunchyroll, it wasn’t until now that the dub became available on the CR streaming service. Fans in America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa are currently able to watch the dub, and its availability will extend to more places later on.

Dragon Ball Super is part of the bigger Dragon Ball franchise, which includes Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT. Its next part, the upcoming anime Dragon Ball Daima, is scheduled to debut later this year.

The anime movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero came out in 2022, and together Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures put it in movie theaters around the globe, including in North America.

VIZ Media publishes the original Dragon Ball Super manga by Akira Toriyama and Toyotarou, and gave this description for its plot:

Having defeated Boo, Goku is starting to get bored with his life on Earth. His wife, Chi-chi, wants him to get a job, but all he wants to do is train and fight stronger enemies. Elsewhere in the universe, the God of Destruction, Beerus, and his attendant Whis are traveling from planet to planet in search of food and entertainment. After blowing up some hapless victims, Beerus is reminded of a man from his dreams with the moniker “Super Saiyan God,” or something like that… The God of Destruction sets his sights on Earth to track down this mysterious man! Maybe this will give Goku something to do?
