Back in November is was revealed that Toonami Asia picked up the license for Dragon Ball Super marking this the first announcement of a release outside of Japan. With no definitive broadcast date announced at the time, earlier today the official Toonami India Twitter account revealed that Dragon Ball Super will begin airing “next month”.
This broadcast of Dragon Ball Super will be dubbed in English, however, it is still unclear which studio will be doing the dub. We do know, however, that FUNimation has no connection to this, but this does not mean that FUNimation won’t be dubbing Dragon Ball Super in the future. In this case the Asian Pacific Market will be getting a different English dub (yes there are multiple English dubs). We did reach out to Toonami Asia for more specific details regarding which studio will be doing the dub, but we have not yet heard back.
Toonami (Asia) is available in countries such as Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Pakistan, Maldives, and India. As such, this still indicates that the series will not be released in the United States; it is solely being marketed for the Asian Pacific Market.
