Glénat Posts “Dragon Ball Super” Manga Chapter 1 French Translation
Published by 13 March 2017, 12:44 PM EDT

In promotion of their upcoming print release of the series’ first volume, Glénat has added their French translation of the Dragon Ball Super manga’s first chapter to their website.

The first collected volume hits French shelves 05 April 2017. Glénat had dabbled in various supplementary Dragon Ball material in recent history, including the 590 Quiz Book along with series such as Jaco the Galactic Patrolman and Dragon Ball SD.

The respective page in our “Manga Guide” has been updated with this release information.

The Dragon Ball Super “comicalization” 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’ twenty-second chapter coming next week in the magazine’s May 2017 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 in English, and will release their own collected print edition beginning in May 2017.

The Dragon Ball Super television series now receives weekly simulcast streams on services such as Crunchyroll and Daisuki. FUNimation has also announced their American distribution license for the series, with the English dub beginning earlier this year on Cartoon Network.

Thanks to Romain for the heads-up!
