Toei Animation has recently signed a deal with ABC Australia and its ABC ME network, which will see the hit anime action series Dragon Ball Super made available for Australian fans. The show used to be accessible to Australian viewers only through Crunchyroll and AnimeLab, and on DVD via Madman but the ABC ME deal provides a new broadcast option.
ABC ME has already started airing Dragon Ball Super last November 3, and will continue to roll out English-dubbed episodes. The show will also be made available via the ABC ME app, and will be a highlight of the network’s holiday programming event ABC’s January Best Fest.
“We are excited to bring Dragon Ball Super on television to our extensive Australian fanbase,” said Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation Inc. “The development is just the latest in a whirlwind year for Dragon Ball Super. The series has expanded its reach into multiple new territories around the world, while Dragon Ball as a whole continues to be one of the world’s most recognizable entertainment brands. We look forward to embarking on a successful relationship with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and maintaining our international momentum.”
