Crunchyroll had been news for DBZ fans as they dropped fresh dubbed and subbed Dragon Ball content into their streaming library.
Funimation and Crunchyroll merger
Those with a Funimation subscription noticed messaging popping up about Funinatiom merging with Crunchyroll. Earlier today, Crunchyroll updated their fans and followers on the details with the merger. As Comic Book reminds us, AT&T previously made the move to purchase Funimation from Sony as an easy way to expand their anime library. This resulted in several Funimation titles being moved to Crunchyroll.
It was a few hours ago that Crunchyroll took to social media to announce some massive news. Several fresh subbed and dubbed Dragon Ball titles were dropping into their streaming library. The best part of the news? They were dropping TODAY.
We’re powering up even more! The Dragon Ball Z English dub, plus the English sub and dub of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT, comes to Crunchyroll TODAY!

New Dragon Ball content drops in
Dragon Ball is a massive anime with a huge fan base. There are several different series and movies that branch off from the original Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball Super has held the title as the most popularly streamed series on Crunchyroll for a while. Sadly, it was the only Dragon Ball content available for fans of the franchise. This, however, had changed according to Crunchyroll’s big announcement. Turns out, the streaming service dropped several fresh subbed and dubbed shows including Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball, and Dragon Ball GT.
The merger deal between Funimation and Crunchyroll means fans of DBZ shouldn’t have to worry about the titles leaving the streaming library. In fact, they should remain available so long as the merger deal holds.
Will Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero be available on Crunchyroll?
One big question fans of DBZ have is simple, will Crunchyroll pick up the new Dragon Ball movie after it becomes available? As we’ve previously reported, there is a new movie called Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. The movie is a month away from dropping in Japan. It is expected to drop into the U.S. during the summer.
There was a time when binging episodes of Dragon Ball, in order, was incredibly difficult. Episodes of this series would play on Cartoon Network at night (sometimes multiple times a week). But, it was still difficult to catch the episodes in order. Streaming services such as Crunchyroll and Funimation have made it easier than ever to binge on anime.
