In a post on Twitter today, European publisher Glénat announced their forthcoming French translation of Toyotarō’s Dragon Ball Super manga, with the first collected volume hitting 05 April 2017.

Glénat had dabbled in various supplementary Dragon Ball material in recent history, including the 590 Quiz Book along with series such as Jaco the Galactic Patrolman and Dragon Ball SD.

The Dragon Ball Super manga began in June 2015 as a promotional tie-in for the television series. The manga runs monthly in Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine, with the series’ seventeenth chapter printed last month in the magazine’s December 2016 issue. Illustrated by “Toyotarō” (in all likelihood, a second pen-name used by Dragon Ball AF fan manga author and illustrator “Toyble”), the Dragon Ball Super manga covered the Battle of Gods re-telling, skipped the Resurrection ‘F’ re-telling, and “charged ahead” to the Champa arc to act as further promotion for the television series. The first collected edition was released last April, with the second collected edition set for release this December.

Viz is currently releasing free digital chapters of the series translated into English, and will release their own collected print edition beginning in May 2017.

Thanks to Romain for the heads-up!
