Funimation to Begin Streaming ‘Dragon Ball Z’ January 15

I may prefer the streamlined Dragon Ball Z Kai to FUNimation Entertainment’s earlier translations of Akira Toriyama’s classic, lightning-fast manga turned (occasionally painfully-long) anime, but it’s still very nice to see that the company is taking its original DBZ online for free. Beginning January 15 at 8:30 p.m., fans will be able to stream full episodes of the series at FUNimation’s official website and on Hulu in both subtitled and dubbed form thanks to an agreement with Japan’s Toei Animation.

Fans who spent untold hours of their life trudging through all of the nearly 300 DBZ episodes on Cartoon Network’s former Toonami programming block can rightfully bang their head against a wall in observance of this new convenience. Anime fans born after 1995, however, can simply catch up on some classic grunting/hair changing action at their leisure, as is their futuristic birthright (but the joke’s on them, have you seen the way they dress?).

There’s no official schedule announced just yet, but FUNimation also plans to stream Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Z Kai down the road. You futuristic kids better not take this for granted on your spaceship ride to school tomorrow.
