Following the merger between Crunchyroll and Funimation, the former has seen some big titles from the latter arrive on its platform. While the original Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z arrived on Crunchyroll earlier this year, the original Japanese version just made landfall and fans are loving this iteration of Goku and the Z-Fighters. With Crunchyroll having all of Dragon Ball on its streaming service and taking part in the global release for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, it's a great time to be a fan of Goku and company.
The Dragon Boxes are a series of physical media discs that remastered the likes of the original Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, and the movies for the Shonen franchise, with many fans touting this as the best restoration of the series that was airing episodes throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
Here's what Crunchyroll had to say about the Japanese Subbed version of Dragon Ball Z hitting their streaming service:
"In addition to the dubbed version of Dragon Ball Z that was previously made available, fans can now watch all of the classic anime-adapting the action-packed manga by Akira Toriyama-in its original Japanese thanks to the launch of the subtitled version."
