The day we’ve all been waiting for has finally come. Dragon Ball Super is getting English Dubbed. The anime celebrates the 30th anniversary of the adaptation of Akira Toriyama’s martial arts comedy action classic will feature long-time franchise voice actors reprising their previous roles for Funimation’s English dub production, including Seán Schemmel (Goku), Christopher R. Sabat (Vegeta), Jason Douglas (Beerus), Ian Sinclair (Whis) and Sonny Strait (Krillin), who we’ve all grown to love as their respective characters.
It’s just not the same when you don’t have the original cast like Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F wasn’t as good since they couldn’t get the original voice of Freeza.
Reuniting the franchise’s iconic characters, “Dragon Ball Super” follows the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain Earth’s fragile peace. Overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator, Akira Toriyama, Dragon Ball Super draws on its thirty-year history to create a bold, new universe that is welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers.
“We are excited to welcome back our many friends and talented newcomers in making ‘Dragon Ball Super’ as special as it can be for fans across the U.S.” said Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation Inc. “Funimation has been a fantastic partner in shaping the series for English audiences.”
“We’re thrilled to reunite the original voice cast for our U.S. English dub production of ‘Dragon Ball Super’ with Toei,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of Funimation. “Dragon Ball fans – new and old- can look forward to the same great dub experience with ‘Dragon Ball Super’ that they have been enjoying for the past 18 years.” -Funimation
