After Dragon Ball Super ended its run recently, fans have taken a hit as they would have to wait until the Dragon Ball Super movie later this year before they can consume any new Dragon Ball stories. Thankfully, Toei Animation and Funimation have previously confirmed that the franchise is far from over, and now, fans would be glad to hear that they're pushing licensing for the popular anime franchise this year.

Funimation has announced that they're planning for a major licensing push for Dragon Ball, as well as many other of their major series, Action Figure Insider reports. The source went on to say that Funimation had executed 55 agreements for products "including collectibles, apparel, toys, games, drinkware, costumes and accessories...specifically, bath & beauty, collectibles of all types, toys, mobile and video games, tabletop games, consumables and costumes."

Dragon Ball Super is available for streaming on Crunchyroll Saturdays at 7:15 p.m. CST. Toonami still airs the English dub of Dragon Ball Super on Adult Swim Saturdays at 9:30 p.m. It's also available to stream on FunimationNOW and Amazon. The upcoming Dragon Ball Super film will be released on December 14.
