posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Toonami Asia announced on Monday that it will premiere the Dragon Ball Super television anime series in Southeast Asia and India on January 21. The show will have a "sneak peek" preview airing of the first episode on December 17. The airing will be the series' international English dub premiere. Toonami Asia is streaming a clip from the first episode with an English dub, but the video is region-locked and is only viewable in Asia (except in Japan) and Australasia.
Bang Zoom! Entertainment confirmed on Monday that it is producing this English dub for Toonami Asia.
Toonami Asia had announced in November 2015 that it would show the "English-language world premiere" of Dragon Ball Super in Southeast Asia and India in mid-2016, but Toonami Asia's official Twitter account reported that it had no new information as of August.
Dragon Ball Super premiered in Japan in July 2015 on Fuji TV and other channels.
Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and AnimeLab began simulcasting the series in various regions starting on October 22 with the Future Trunks Arc (episodes 47-63). Funimation has licensed the series in North America, with an English dub planned.
Update: Bang Zoom! Entertainment confirmed on Monday that it is producing this English dub for Toonami Asia. Thanks, emory.
