The entire Dragon Ball Saga is headed to Crunchyroll!

Crunchyroll, the ultimate home for anime worldwide, has announced the arrival of the Dragon Ball saga to its growing catalogue. The five famous TV series (over 800 episodes) will be available in the United Kingdom and France.

Dragon Ball Super (131 episodes) is already available with subtitles in the UK. The first series, Dragon Ball (153 episodes) is scheduled from 9th February in subtitled and dubbed versions. The other sequels will be available soon: Dragon Ball Z (291 episodes) from 1st March,  Dragon Ball GT (64 episodes) from 15th March, and Dragon Ball Z Kai (167 episodes) from 29th March.

The Dragon Ball phenomenon began in 1984, when Akira Toriyama’s famous manga was first published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. It swiftly became a leading title during its ten and a half years of publication. Since then, the manga’s success has gone from strength to strength, with an incredible 260 million copies sold worldwide. With Dragon Ball‘s ever-growing popularity, the series has expanded beyond manga to include animated series, films, games and merchandising. Produced by Toei Animation, the animated series began airing in 1986 and has since aired around the world.

Today, almost 40 years after the launch of the original manga, Dragon Ball continues to evolve ever further.
