FUNimation’s Dragon Ball Super dub casting announced

It’s the moment we’ve been waiting for since FUNimation announced their new partnership with Toei Animation, first order of business being an English dub of Dragon Ball Super. The cast list is in at last, so let’s get right to it and run down those familiar names, as well as a few new ones.

  • Seán Schemmel as Goku
  • Christopher R. Sabat as Vegeta
  • Jason Douglas as Beerus
  • Ian Sinclair as Whis
  • Sonny Strait as Krillin
  • Kyle Hebert as Gohan
  • Monica Rial as Bulma
  • Christopher R. Sabat as Piccolo
  • Alexis Tipton as Trunks
  • Doc Morgan as Narrator
  • Kara Edwards as Goten
  • Cynthia Cranz as Chi-Chi
  • Meredith McCoy as Android 18
  • Chris Rager as Mr. Satan
  • Josh Martin as Buu
  • Seán Schemmel as King Kai
  • Christopher R. Sabat as Shenron
  • Kara Edwards as Videl
  • Christopher R. Sabat as Yamcha
  • John Burgmeier as Tien
  • Chris Cason as Shou
  • Mike McFarland as Roshi
  • Brina Palencia as Puar
  • Chuck Huber as Pilaf
  • Kyle Hebert as Ox-King
  • Brad Jackson as Oolong
  • Tia Ballard as Marron
  • Kent Williams as Kibito Kai
  • Kent Williams as Elder Kai
  • Justin Cook as Dende
  • Brina Palencia as Chiaotzu
  • Colleen Clinkenbeard as Mai

As the old faithfuls will have noticed, Seán Schemmel, Chris Sabat, Jason Douglas, Ian Sinclair and Sonny Strait are all back in their old beloved roles for the first time since the movie Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’. Toei and FUNimation’s license for Super only covers the US and Canada for now, but we’re sure the dub will be along for us other territories sometime in the very near future.

FunimationNow is also joining Crunchyroll, Daisuki and Anime Lab in streaming the series on its site. Having added episodes 1-10 and the full Future Trunks arc with English subtitles, the simulcast began on November 5th. The episodes in between (11-46) were to be made available once subtitling had been completed. While we in the UK can’t view the show on FunimationNow as per the limits of the partnership, Daisuki are streaming it across much of Europe, including Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland.

  1. Dragonball Z is another of those shows (just like Naruto) that I have not really started on, because of the enormous amount of episodes that are out for it. Still, I am not dismissing it, as maybe there will come a time that I will have somewhat more free time on my hands (miracles do happen 😂)

      My advice is if your gonna watch Naruto: Google the filler episodes list and skip them. You’ll have a much better experience and it may be a lot of work but it’s worth it, the story for Naruto is great, maybe even one of the best. 😊

      I don’t think I’ll ever properly catch up with Dragon Ball, but I’ve at least seen the whole Frieza arc 😆 Aw man, what a perfect villain.

  2. I am glad to see the original cast come back. I noticed that the original voice actress of 18 is back. I kind of like her voice compared to the Kai version.
