Dragon Ball Super English DUB Simulcast Announced By Funimation

Funimation has announced that they are producing an English dub of Dragon Ball Super to go with their English subtitled simulcast.



Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of Funimation said, “We are thrilled to continue our great partnership with Toei Animation. Like with the recent blockbuster Dragon Ball Z movies, having original creator Akira Toriyama passionately involved in ‘Dragon Ball Super’ is so wonderful to see and for fans to experience.”

Few weeks ago, fans were treated to their first taste of Dragon Ball Super simulcasting. Crunchyroll housed the first live premiere of a subbed Dragon Ball Super episode since its Japanese release in 2015. The critically acclaimed series is the first anime to join the franchise is nearly 20 years. Creator Akira Toriyama returned to his iconic series to give fans a new look into Son Goku’s life with the rest of his Z Fighter squad.

Currently, Funimation has plans to subtitle the entire Dragon Ball Super series before its English dub is released. Fans can watch episode 1-10 and 47-64 on FunimationNow. This Saturday, regular simulcasting will begin with episode 65 at 8:30 CT. In the coming weeks, episodes 11-46 will be subbed and uploaded to the site’s streaming platforms.

“We are delighted to introduce ‘Dragon Ball Super’ to a fantastic audience together with Funimation,” said Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation Inc. “’Dragon Ball Super’ encompasses everything fans love about Dragon Ball, while talking the mythology to a whole new level. Toei’s team of talented animators and creators have put their passion and imagination into this series.”

On Twitter, Christopher Sabat (the english voice of Vegeta) has been celebrating the English dub’s confirmation. The actor, told fans, “We’re back!” His profile also says, “Super Dub = Confirmed!!!!!!” so fans are hoping this means that Sabat will return to the recording booth. Other talent like Sean Schemmel, Terry Klassen, and more have yet to comment on the announcement.

        True, dub has always been better for Dragon ball and Naruto.

          “Dub is better for Naruto”
          Are you serious? That’s like saying the one piece dub is good.
          That’s like saying that all of coleen clinkenbeards characters do not sound alike.

          You’re a fucking moron if you think the dub for naruto is better than the original japanese.
          Naruto, when shippuuden came around, got a deeper voice in the subs.
          But in the dubs, he just sounded like the younger version.

          I am SO fucking tired of the dubs for ALL anime. The characters sound retarded.

      Sean Schemmel’s voice is infinitely better than that Japanese female voice of Goku.

        By “they” I meant Sabat.
        Because HE is the one that replaced the voice actors.
        Primarily the voice of Kid Goku and Kid/Teen Gohan.
        Also 18.
        With the same shitty actress: Coleen clinkenbeard.
        The person who voices Luffy… to an ear shattering degree.
        Because Sabat, and ONLY sabat, said that Nadolny (OG gohan/Kgoku) wasn’t good enough… and then replaced her with fucking CLINKENBEARD.
