Shueisha’s official book database and online retailers have updated with a listing for the second collected print edition of Yoshitaka Nagayama’s Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission, due out 02 May 2018.

The volume will retail for ¥400 (plus tax), will run 192 pages, and is available to pre-order on CDJapan and Amazon Japan.

The series’ first collected volume was released almost exactly one year prior, covering the series’ first five chapters along with bonus material.

A sequel/continuation from and initially a replacement for the previous Dragon Ball Heroes Super Charisma Mission! manga series, Dark Demon Realm Mission began in the September 2016 issue of Shueisha’s Saikyō Jump magazine telling a new story set in the Super Dragon Ball Heroes world with Time Patrol Trunks, Chronoa, and more. The series’ tenth chapter was serialized in the March 2018 issue earlier this year, which simultaneously marked it as the “End of Part 1” while the table of contents listed it as the “final chapter”.

Nagayama’s original Charisma Mission series debuted with a special Rookie Charisma Mission Episode 0 in the December 2013 issue of Saikyō Jump, then ran in earnest from the July 2014 to July 2016 issues. In it, Engineer Yoshito, Battle Navigator Tsubasa, and Battle Princess Momo illustrate the various features of the game in comedic ways. With the cancellation of Katsuki Hirose‘s Dragon Ball Discross Divine Power God MAX!! spin-off manga series (due to the Discross arcade game’s official discontinuation), Nagayama returned with Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Charisma Mission!! in the March 2017 issue, which has been running alongside Dark Demon Realm Mission.

Saikyō Jump currently serializes five Dragon Ball spin-off series: Dragon Ball SD, the Dragon Ball GT anime comic, Dragon Ball Fusions the MANGA!!, Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission, and Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Charisma Mission!! Thus far, Naho Ooishi‘s Dragon Ball SD is the only other Saikyō Jump series receiving a collected print (and digital) release.
