Today is the day Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is finally streamable somewhere. This film became the top-grossing Dragon Ball movie ever when it was released last year, hitting #1 at the box office last August. Very few anime movies to reach that milestone in the US. Now you can find out if it’s worthy of that hype, as long as you have a Crunchyroll subscription.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero was the largest Dragon Ball movie ever, at least in terms of ticket sales. It hit #1 at the box office when it was released in August of last year, the first Dragon Ball movie to do so and one of the rare anime movies to reach that milestone in the US. It’s been quite a wait since then, but Crunchyroll just announced they are finally making the movie streamable for anyone with a subscription.
Crunchyroll just announced its physical release schedule for March and it’s a noisy one. Three popular anime series have major releases that month, though thankfully not on the same days.
This weekend was a huge moment for anime that’s been a long time coming. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero opened in US theaters this weekend, and won. We don’t mean it just did good numbers. We mean it hit #1. For the first time ever, an anime movie will be the movie that news reports will be mentioning when they recap the box office receipts (oh right, Pokemon: The First Movie technically beat it…ah, fudge it, this was an honest anime movie with no weird edits, so if you ask me, it was the first).
The official trailer for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero made its premiere at the Comic-Con panel for the film a few hours ago. In attendance were both Piccolos, Toshio Furukawa (Japanese) and Christopher R. Sabat (English) alongside producer Norihiro Hayashida.
It will only be a few days until Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is released in Japan…but what about the rest of the world? Today we got answers regarding that…Crunchyroll has revealed the movie will hit US theaters August 19.
You want more information on the next Dragon Ball Super movie, you got it. Toei swears they’ll return to the TV series eventually, but for now, they’re keeping the franchise burning with movies. The latest, Super Hero, is nearly done and we’ll be getting it pretty soon.
Trunks and Goten are now teenagers in the movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. The last time we see them this grown was in GT which is not canon.
