“Dragon Ball Super” Manga Collected Edition Vol. 2 Announced
Published by 04 October 2016, 10:30 AM EDT

This week’s November 2016 issue of Saikyō Jump contains a brief announcement for an upcoming second collected edition of Toyotarō’s Dragon Ball Super manga. The second volume of this “legitimate sequel to Dragon Ball!” is due out this December, with no other specifics (date, price point, page count, etc.) detailed.


The first collected edition was announced back in February and saw its release in April covering the series’ first nine chapters, one spin-off chapter, and a special interview between Toyotarō and original author Akira Toriyama.

Since this volume’s release, another seven regular chapters and one more spin-off chapter have been released, with at least another two regular monthly chapters set to hit V-Jump by this second volume’s December release. The January 2017 issue of Saikyō Jump due out 02 December 2016 is also set to include a bonus booklet of comics, a large poster with a new illustration by Toyotarō, three Super Dragon Ball Heroes cards, stickers, and more.

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’ sixteenth chapter printed last month in the magazine’s November 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. Viz is currently releasing free digital chapters of the series, and will release their own collected print edition beginning in May 2017.

Following past appearances at Jump Victory Carnival in Japan, Toyotarō will make an appearance at New York Comic Con this weekend for autographs at the Bandai Namco Mobile Booth from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. on 08 October 2016.
