Dragon Ball Super is drawing closer to its end, and fans across the world are celebrating the franchise in their own way. Cut to Latin America, where fans gathered to watch the penultimate episode live in stadiums, plazas, and parks across the country.
Although the fandom came out strong in support to celebrate the series, Toei Animation wasn’t keen on having any unauthorized streamings take place, making an official announcement on the subject via Twitter. However, formal negotiations for Ciudad Juárez’s screening were made, according to sources, which garnered over 9,000 people in attendance to watch Goku and Jiren go at it in the Tournament of Power.
It can only be assumed the crowd’s reaction after the episode swerved previously leaked information. Check out Toei’s statement and images of a few events below.

Embassy of Japan in Mexico sent a note to a Mexican governor regarding the public airing of Dragon Ball Super’s last two eps, asking to suspend it if its illegal because of Toei’s author rights.
