As part of another round of interest in the Dragon Ball franchise — primarily tied in with the then-upcoming new film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods — a new series of guide books was announced for 2013: the four Chōzenshū. The books were revealed to be refreshed versions of the previously-released Daizenshuu from the 1990s, also packed with additional information and reference material from the various productions created since the prior books’ release. As a complement to the Chōzenshū, one additional book was also announced: the Chōgashū, which would be a new illustration and artwork collection.
The final Chōzenshū (#4, “Super Encyclopedia”) and the Chōgashū (“Super Art Collection”) are available today (09 May 2013) in Japan. Our own Julian / SaiyaJedi already has them in-hand and has begun the documentation process. Stay tuned for our regular overview pages for the books in our “Databook Guide” — we will have complete breakdowns of both books in the coming days.
For those of you that need that quick-hit to your information-bloodstream, here are a few key details:
Both books are available today (09 May 2013). Chōzenshū 4: Super Encyclopedia runs ¥2,300 and can be purchased online at CDJapan and Amazon Japan. The Chōgashū runs ¥3,800 and can also be purchased online at CDJapan and Amazon Japan.
