With that said, not only does Dragon Ball Super take place before Battle of Gods, which takes place 4 years after Buu’s defeat, but also before the Jump Super Anime Tour Special, which takes place just 2 years after the defeat of Buu.

“Dragon Ball Super” Licensed for Latin America, but Not by FOX

UPDATE: The normally credible website ANMTVLA has posted an apology revealing that they have shared inaccurate information. No rights acquisitions have been made by FOX at this time; however, it is already licensed in Latin America by Toei Animation’s branch in that territory.

Actualización: En un contacto con Toei Animation, fuimos informados que tanto Dragon Ball Super como Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold no serán distribuidas por FOX para América Latina. La empresa esclareció la situación mencionando que el estudio es apenas del distribuidor de la película Dragon Ball Z: La Resurrección de Freezer. La compañía destaco que estos animes si están licenciados y que despiertan interés en potenciales compradores.

El sitio ANMTVLA siempre tiene como prioridad llevar informaciones correctas para nuestros lectores, más en este caso hubo una pequeña confusión de parte de la fuente original. Pedimos disculpas por lo ocurrido.


In a conference with Toei Animation, we were informed that both Dragon Ball and Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold will not be distributed by Fox in Latin America. The company clarified the situation, mentioning that the studio is only the distributor for the movie Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F. The company stressed that these anime are licensed by them and that potential buyers have awakened an interest for them.

Our website, ANMTVLA, has always prioritized bringing only correct news to its readers, and especially in this case there was a small confusion with the original source. We apologise for what has occurred.

So, while it was incorrect that FOX would be bringing the show to Latin American countries, that does not mean it won’t be coming at all. Toei Animation’s Latin American subsidiary has already licensed both Super and Soul of Gold in that territory, meaning that this is still the first announcement for any foreign plans to release the series internationally, regardless of the lack of information and the confusion initially surrounding this event. This is the only the beginning, though, and we will keep you updated as developments occur.

You can read the original, incorrect post below. Please remember that this information was false and FOX has not acquired any type of rights to the series. The text has been crossed out to reflect this.

Argentinian company JPosters has revealed that Dragon Ball Super has been officially licensed by FOX for distribution in Latin American countries. No official date was announced, however. Dragon Ball Super is the first all-new Dragon Ball television series that is scheduled to make its debut in Japan on July 5. This is the first announcement for any foreign plans to release the series internationally.

Not Lisenced for Latin America - Dragon Ball Super

#‎OFICIAL / ¡La esperada DRAGON BALL SUPER llegará a Latinoamérica por Canal FOX!

A pocos días del estreno en Japón, el canal cerro un trato con Toei para así transmitir la serie en nuestro territorio.

Y no sólo eso, ya que también compro los derechos de LOS CABALLEROS DEL ZODIACO: ALMA DE ORO.

Aún no se sabe nada sobre la fecha de lanzamiento por estas pampas, pero lo cierto es que Goku y Aioria estarán en FOX muy pronto, y esperemos que con su doblaje original.


#Official! The highly anticipated DRAGON BALL SUPER will come to Latin America on FOX!

With only few days left before the Japanese premiere, the channel disclosed an agreement with Toei to transmit the series in our territory.

And not only that, it also bought the rights to SAINT SEIYA: SOUL OF GOLD.

We don’t yet know anything about the launch date in our land, but we do know for certain that Goku and Aioria [from Soul of Gold] will be on FOX very soon, and hopefully with their original dub cast.

Previewed “Resurrection ‘F'” Clip has Goku + Freeza Face off

The website Entertainment Weekly posted a short 02:27 video from the Dragon Ball Z 2015 English dubbed, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’. The clip shown from Resurrection ‘F’ showcases Goku and Freeza facing off for the first time since Freeza’s initial defeat back on planet Namek. Resurrection ‘F’ will be shown in English for the first time in LA, California on July 2 as part of a one day red carpet event, and will again be shown across theaters in North America beginning on August 4, and ending on August 12.

Dragon Ball Z: “Fukkatsu no ‘F’” (Revival of ‘F’ – Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ ) released in Japanese theaters on April 18, 2015. Unlike the previous film which had an alternative English title (Kami to Kami/Battle of Gods) this film currently does not have a supplementary English title listed on the movie poster. Resurrection ‘F’ is centered on the revival of Freeza. Toriyama stated that he, “deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal”, and he is writing it, “as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization.” Resurrection ‘F’ will be receiving its respective English dub this summer, as part of a limited theatrical run on beginning August 4 and ending on August 12. A subtitled world premiere of the film came to Los Angeles, California on April 11, 2015. “Revival of ‘F’ will be screening in 74 countries worldwide, which began with Hong Kong and Taiwan on May 21, 2015. A release in the Philippines is also scheduled, beginning on June 10.
