Dragon Ball Super on Toonami

Dragon Ball Super (52×30’), the first Dragon Ball television series to be produced in nearly 20 years, will make its pan-regional launch on Toonami, Turner’s kids brand dedicated to delivering the best superhero and action-adventure animation, in mid-2016.

The latest instalment of the classic franchise will have an exclusive first-run premiere on Toonami, which will also be its English-language world premiere. “This announcement is huge for fanboys and girls in Asia. Dragon Ball is undoubtedly the original and world’s biggest anime export, and is a cornerstone of our programming on Toonami,” said Mark Eyers, Chief Content Officer for Turner’s Kids Networks in Asia Pacific.

“Since the channel launched in 2012, Toonami has been airing episodes of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Z Kai, and to premiere Dragon Ball Super demonstrates the channel’s continued commitment to securing must-have and must-see content, first on Toonami,” Eyers added.

Reuniting the franchise’s iconic characters, Dragon Ball Super follows the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain earth’s fragile peace. Overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator, Akira Toriyama and produced with Fuji Television, Dragon Ball Super will draw on its historic past to create a bold, new universe welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers.

Introduced as a manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1984, Dragon Ball has evolved into a globally beloved brand. Seen around the world with over 230 million copies of its comic books sold, Dragon Ball is one of the most popular anime franchises of all time.

 

Series Synopsis:

The threat of Majin Buu has passed, and Goku and friends are finally living in peace. The day of Bulma’s birthday party arrives, everyone gets together again for the first time in ages. Then Beerus, the God of Destruction, appears. Goku gets his friends’ help to become the legendary Super Saiyan God, and gets into a fierce fight with Beerus, but he’s not quite as powerful as the God of Destruction. Beerus ends the fight, and informs Goku of a shocking fact. This universe where Goku and crew live is only one of 12. What’s more, each universe has its own God of Destruction, which means there might be opponents out there even stronger than Beerus! The story now moves into a new phase. Now the world of Dragon Ball reaches a new dimension that’s beyond imagination.
