Dragon Ball fans everywhere just received the biggest gift of the holiday season. Toei Animation Inc., Funimation Entertainment and Adult Swim have announced their partnership to bring Dragon Ball Super to TV audiences starting in January.
Dragon Ball Super is the first new storyline in more than 18 years from original creator Akira Toriyama and the Dragon Ball franchise, which was first introduced to the U.S. more than 20 years ago. Adult Swim will begin airing the U.S. English dub of Season 1 of the series during the Toonami block starting on January 7, 2017.
Dragon Ball Super is more than the latest adventure in the Dragon Ball saga. With Majin Buu defeated, Goku has taken a completely new role as…a radish farmer?! With Earth at peace, our heroes have settled into normal lives.
But they can’t get too comfortable. Far away, the powerful God of Destruction, Beerus, awakens to a prophecy revealing his demise at the hands of an even more formidable being. When his search for the Saiyan God brings him to Earth, can Goku and his friends take on their strongest foe yet?
