Relive Goku and Jiren’s First Fight in ‘Dragon Ball Super’ Part 9, Now on Blu-ray

     October 31, 2019


Dragon Ball Super brought us some great moments — Master Roshi overcoming his pervy nature, a temporary team-up between Frieza and Frost, and even the hearty Ribrianne — but the real treat of the latest anime series is the clash between Goku vs Jiren. Now, with Part Nine available on Blu-ray through Funimation, you can relive the earliest moments of their confrontation before the final all-out battle.

Episodes 105 – 117 of the hit series feature the earliest skirmish between the two powerhouses, which forces Goku to go Super Saiyan Blue (aka Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan) with Kaioken x20, ultimately resorting to the Spirit Bomb … but that’s still not good enough. It’ll take Goku achieving Ultra Instinct to go toe to toe with Jiren the Gray. This series of episodes is also great for fans of Saiyans in general since Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Cabba, Kale, Caulifla, and their merged Kefla form go all-out. And as a bonus, the Androids go up against the remaining 2nd Universe Maiden Warriors, offering up a little something for everyone in the latest FUNimation release.

Dragon Ball Super – Part Nine

The Tournament of Power rages on. The 2nd Universe’s warriors of love are out for blood, Frieza makes his move, and Goku’s attention turns to Jiren. Unflinching resolve faces immeasurable power, as Saiyan and Pride Trooper test each other’s capabilities. But when Goku’s stamina starts to dwindle, can Instinct save him?


Time is winding down, fighters are falling out, and the battles are heating up!

For the uninitiated, FUNimation is a U.S. company known for their dubs and domestic distribution of Japanese anime. So all of the reviews you’re about to check out are for the dub version of each anime, though some Blu-rays/DVDs have a Japanese audio option as there are some exceptions to the rule. Below, you’ll find the official synopsis for each movie and series, along with a link to pick up your own copy at FUNimation’s online store, should you want to. Sometimes, it’ll be an easy thing to suggest you buy it, other times, it’ll be just as easy to go in the other direction.
