The Dragon Ball phenomenon began in 1984, when Akira Toriyama’s famous manga was first published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. It swiftly became a leading title during its ten and a half years of publication. Since then, the manga’s success has gone from strength to strength, with an incredible 260 million copies sold worldwide. With Dragon Ball‘s ever-growing popularity, the series has expanded beyond manga to include animated series, films, games and merchandising. Produced by Toei Animation, the animated series began airing in 1986 and has since aired around the world.
Today, almost 40 years after the launch of the original manga, Dragon Ball continues to evolve ever further. Will you be checking out Dragon Ball on Crunchyroll? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to check out more anime news here.
