Anime streaming service Daisuki has announced that they will be streaming the Dragon Ball Z TV series on their site to viewers in the United States and Canada.


Unlike FUNimation’s streaming arrangements with Hulu which feature the cropped/widescreen version from the company’s “season” orange bricks released from 2007-2009, Daisuki’s stream — currently of the first five Dragon Ball Z episodes — is exclusively in Japanese with English subtitles and in the series’ original 4:3 aspect ratio. The original Japanese-language title cards are also included, as well as the correct (first) animation for the opening theme, “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA”.

Big thanks to forumite NessMudkip for the heads-up!

    Your English is less important than our English.

    But seriously, you probably need to take it up with Manga UK and/or AB Groupe :).

    I’m betting Dragon Box considering the correct opening animation and title card.

    I’m not sure. The opening didn’t have the Japanese characters of the lyrics in the picture itself. It looks a little different than Dragon Box but looks damn good.
