With followers all over the world, the Dragon Ball franchise by Akira Toriyama is undoubtedly one of the most well-known animes. Dragon Ball fans can finally view every episode of the series online, with the exception of Dragon Ball Z Kai, which, let’s face it, isn’t really considered to be a separate program.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the plot, the Dragon Ball franchise centers on the exploits of Son Goku, who is first seen as an orphan with a monkey’s tail and unusual martial arts abilities.
Goku defends the universe by preventing people from assembling the seven titular Dragon Balls with the aid of allies including Bulma, Krillin, and Master Roshi. The Eternal Dragon Shenron, who can grant any request when called upon, can be summoned by combining the Dragon Balls.
As the anime progresses, we discover more about Goku and his background (it turns out he’s basically a more bumbling Superman) and watch as he pushes himself to achieve greater levels of strength. And it doesn’t stop with Goku; later, we learn about his sons Gohan and Goten and their own experiences.
One of the first anime franchises to have a really global influence is Dragon Ball, which gives it a certain distinction. It’s thrilling, entertaining, and has some fantastic tales that have delighted fans for years. Here is how to stream each of the Dragon Ball franchise’s shows without further ado.
Dragon Ball, which had its first episode aired in 1986, continued for three years and 153 episodes. The franchise’s main protagonists are first introduced in the first season (and some antagonists later become protagonists). Since this is where it all started, fans of the franchise will enjoy watching the show with nostalgia.
As of March 15, 2022, you may watch every episode of Dragon Ball on Crunchyroll. The program was previously solely available on Funimation, but since the libraries of the two anime streaming platforms have been combined, fans now have unprecedented access to the complete canon of Dragon Ball stories in one place.
Dragon Ball Z
Despite the original series’ immense influence, most people associate Dragon Ball with Dragon Ball Z. The program had 291 episodes and several specials by the time it concluded in 1996. Due to the revelation that Goku is actually an alien warrior who was taken to Earth as an infant, Dragon Ball Z repositions the franchise away from its fantasy roots and gives it a more sci-fi feel.
Goku’s kid, Gohan, and the Saiyans, Goku’s race, are introduced in the first episode of the series, which starts five years after Dragon Ball. Speaking of Saiyans, Vegeta, the ruthless antihero and Goku’s greatest foe/best friend, is without a doubt the anime series Dragon Ball Z’s biggest breakout star. Crunchyroll now offers to stream Dragon Ball Z.
Dragon Ball GT
Dragon Ball GT is a difficult game. Because GT isn’t based on an Akira Toriyama manga, some fans believe it should not be regarded canonical to the Dragon Ball series. This dispute continues among fans. The series centers on a magically aged Goku, his fearless granddaughter Pan, and a variety of their allies and foes.
When it was first broadcast between 1996 and 1997, Dragon Ball GT was not well regarded, but it has subsequently grown tremendously in popularity. The introduction of the Super Saiyan 4 form, which is arguably the most divisive aspect of the fandom with as many supporters as opponents, was one significant contribution that GT contributed to the franchise. Crunchyroll is now streaming Dragon Ball GT.
Dragon Ball Super
18 years after the conclusion of Dragon Ball GT, the most recent season of Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Super, debuted in 2015. The series picks up several years after the conclusion of Dragon Ball Z and disregards the preceding program.
The series significantly broadens the universe of the film series by introducing characters like Beerus the God of Destruction and showing a number of other universes, each with formidable combatants who can compete with our heroes.
Despite being relatively young, Dragon Ball Super has gained a lot of fan support and has been praised for its superior animation and striking new designs. On Crunchyroll, you can watch the Japanese dub of Dragon Ball Super with English subtitles.
