“Dragon Ball Super” International Licensing Updates: Asia & France
Published by 26 March 2016, 2:00 PM EDT

Last November, Toonami Asia announced their Dragon Ball Super English-language debut for the Asia Pacific region. While details have been sparse since the original announcement, the company’s official Twitter account recently replied to a fan’s inquiry about an expected timeframe for the dubbed presentation, pegging July/August as the expected launch:


Toonami Asia is currently available in markets including Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Pakistan, Maldives, and India. Though it is not yet clear which company will be producing this particular English dub, in all likelihood it will be a dub exclusive to these regions as has been done with previous series and films. Kanzenshuu has confirmed with FUNimation that the company is not involved with Toonami Asia’s presentation.

The ever-eagle-eyed WTK pointed out another licensing announcement: France will apparently receive the Dragon Ball Super TV series later in 2016, as per an entry on the Kazachok Licensing Forum’s official website.


Après plusieurs décennies d’attente interminable, Son Goku revient dans une toute nouvelle pour devenir encore et toujours plus fort ! La série arrivera en France fin 2016 !

After several decades of interminable waiting, Goku returns in a brand new series to become even stronger! The series will arrive on TV in France end of 2016!

Toei’s European website has maintained an entry for the Dragon Ball Super TV series throughout its Japanese broadcast.

Dragon Ball Super currently airs Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. on Fuji TV in Japan. The series’ thirty-sixth episode airs this weekend.

    So, once again various licensing shenanigans are tying Funimation’s hands on getting this out in North America. At the very least, Funimation should take the money they’re not spending on this and spend it on a license for Danganronpa 3.
