Turner Secures Dragon Ball Super for Several Asian Territories


The return of Akira Toriyama’s iconic Dragon Ball franchise was incredibly successful, despite many of the original series’ fans being old enough to be the fathers of its newer followers. So it only stands to reason that broadcasters will be jumping at the chance to bring the franchise to different territories, and the winners in this case is Turner Broadcasting, whose ongoing campaign to expand their presence in the Asian market includes nabbing the broadcast rights for the 52 x 30 series for their Toonami channel. Turner is planning to launch the series in mid-2016, with an eye towards South and South East Asia.

According to the Toonami announcement: “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”.
