‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’ Announces Crunchyroll Release Date

Dragon Ball has gained legendary status as one of the most iconic anime franchises in history, with its manga’s legacy inspiring numerous sequels and film adaptations. While not included in the coveted “Anime’s Big Three” list (One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach), Dragon Ball has solidified its place as a timeless classic, spawning almost 30 movies. The latest addition to the franchise, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, continues to unravel the captivating tale of Dragon Ball, having achieved remarkable success at the box office during its debut last year, coupled with a glowing critics’ rating of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. After its physical release a few months ago, this action-packed anime film will now grace the screens of Crunchyroll on July 12, providing viewers with both subbed and dubbed formats for their enjoyment.

With a staggering global revenue of over $90 million, this anime film has secured its place as one of the most successful films within the Dragon Ball franchise. Beyond its triumphant theatrical run in Japan, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero triumphed in international cinemas, amassing $10.7 million in revenue on its opening day alone. Thanks to its exceptional box office performance, the film has risen to become the fourth highest-grossing anime film in the United States and Canada, with Pokémon: The First Movie firmly holding the top position.

This film’s achievement holds significant importance for the entire franchise, considering the mixed reception both at the box office and among critics for some of Dragon Ball’s previous film releases. However, despite occasional setbacks, Dragon Ball has consistently delivered outstanding series and movies, with Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero now joining the ranks of the highest-rated Dragon Ball films of all time alongside Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, Dragon Ball Z: Wrath Of The Dragon, and Dragon Ball: The Path To Power.
