Continuing onward from the previous eight chapters, Viz has added their English translation of the Dragon Ball Super manga’s ninth chapter to their website.
The respective page in our “Manga Guide” has been updated with this release information.
While the Dragon Ball Super television series has been licensed for certain international territories, no announcement has been made for North America.
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.
