Volume Introduction by Toyotarō

JP
I really love a certain “magic kingdom”. I often watch that “magic kingdom”‘s movies, too. I just can’t resist that feeling of happiness.

It’d be nice if there’s a Dragon Ball Land, too, one day…

Volume Contents

The title for the collected volume — 孫悟空覚醒の”兆” (Son Gokū Kakusei no “Kizashi” or “‘Sign’ of Son Goku’s Awakening”) — is taken directly from the thirty-ninth chapter’s title.

The volume’s standard front cover is a desaturated version of the dust jacket’s front cover, while the back cover is an alternate version featuring Son Gohan and Videl instead of Son Goku and Kuririn.

The inside title page showcases a sketch of Son Goku and Vegeta, while the table of contents features Gods of Destruction Rumoosh, Vermoud, and Geen.

To fill out the necessary page count, Toyotarō supplies new drawings between chapters, with this volume exclusively featuring team lineups (specifically the Universes 2, 3, 4, and 10 teams). The Jump Victory Carnival 2018 bonus chapter is included following chapter 40. “Corrections Done by Toriyama-sensei Himself” make a reappearance, with a single showcase of Jiren character design adjustments, while a two-page interview between Toyotarō and Akira Toriyama is also included. The volume wraps-up with a two-page preview of the “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” arc.
