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.

And, it seems, this was also sent.

But there were apparently formal negotiations for the Ciudad Juárez screening.
