Nickelodeon Greece Acquires Rights to 'Dragon Ball Super'

Toei Animation Europe and VIZ Media Europe have announced the exciting news that Nickelodeon Greece has acquired the broadcast rights to Toei Animation's hit anime series Dragon Ball Super!

Set following the events in Dragon Ball Z, with Majin Buu defeated, Goku has taken a completely new role as...a radish farmer?! With Earth at peace, our heroes have settled into normal lives. But they can’t get too comfortable. Far away, a powerful destructive deity - the powerful God of Destruction, Beerus - awakens to a prophecy revealing his demise at the hands of an even more formidable being. When his search for the Saiyan God brings him to Earth, can Goku and his friends take on their strongest foe yet? The series will see Goku travel to other universes to face more powerful opponents as well as nearly unstoppable foes.

The anime is a sequel to Toriyama's original Dragon Ball manga and the Dragon Ball Z television series, and features the first new Dragon Ball storyline from original series creator Akira Toriyama in 18 years. The series was broadcast on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. on Fuji TV, running for 131 between July 5, 2015 – March 25, 2018. Dragon Ball Super also airs on Nickelodeon Israel. An animated film, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, is also in the works, and it will be the first film in the Dragon Ball franchise to be produced under the Dragon Ball Super title. The film will be released on December 14, 2018. It will be a continuation to the series that will act as a new arc.

Toei Animation Europe and VIZ Media Europe will also be hosting a exclusive panel presentation dedicated to the rapid growth of the anime in the licensing industry Brand Licensing Europe 2018 in London, UK.

The news follows Nickelodeon Russia announcing plans to premiere the anime Screechers Wild! in October 2018.
