Dragon Ball Super Manga Adaptation


The July 2015 issue of V-Jump announced a forthcoming manga adaptation of the 2015 TV series, Dragon Ball Super, to be illustrated by Toyotarō (of Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission and the introductory manga adaptation of Revival of “F”). The manga adaptation would be published on a monthly basis beginning with the August 2015 issue of V-Jump.

Within the August 2015 issue of V-Jump, as part of a feature on the upcoming TV series, Toyotarō stated:

Getting to see a new DB anime series every week makes me too happy! With this comicalization, I want to make my own small contribution to the excitement, so everyone please check out the manga, too!

The Dragon Ball Super manga adaptation began receiving collected manga volumes from Shueisha and V-Jump in April 2016. Viz began publishing their English translation of the Dragon Ball Super manga — available for free, digitally, on their website — in June 2016, with a print edition beginning in May 2017.
