Despite only offering the Japanese dub, fans have reported Crunchyroll’s Dragon Ball movie collection consists of the old Funimation remasters and not Toei Animation’s updated edition.

“Despite being sub only, these use the old Funimation remasters rather than the newer Toei ones,” Twitter user @AnimeAjay claimed. “So you get subpar audio quality and overly contrasty and saturate visuals. I wonder if DBS Broly will be tinted green too when they get there lol.”
