Over the weekend, anime fans in Latin America gathered to watch Dragon Ball Super’s 130th episode streamed in stadiums, plazas and parks.

The Dragon Ball Super TV anime will come to an end for the time being. However, a Dragon Ball Super movie will hit theaters later this year in Japan.

Toei Animation sent out an official statement regarding these stream events, saying that it had not authorized these public watch parties.
