Funimation Entertainment has partnered with Toei Animation to broadcast Akira Toriyama's "Dragon Ball Super" in the United States and Canada.
Work has begun on an English dub of the anime series, but fans can immediately watch subtitled episodes 1 to 10 and 47 to 64 on FunimationNow. New simulcast episodes, beginning with Episode 65, will launch today at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Episodes 11 to 46 will be available on FunimationNow once subtitling is complete.
The first new franchise storyline from Toriyam in 18 years, "Dragon Ball Super" is set after the defeat of Majin Buu, with Earth at peace, and Goku and his friends now settled into normal lives. However, Beerus, the mighty God of Destruction, awakes 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, Goku and his allies must face their strongest foe yet.
"We are thrilled to continue our great partnership with Toei Animation" Funimation CEO Gen Fukunaga said in a statement. "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."
