Continuing onward from the previous chapters, Viz has added their English translation of the Dragon Ball Super manga’s twenty-second chapter to their website, continuing the “Future Trunks arc” of the manga. As of this chapter, Viz is completely caught up with the original serialization in Japan; chapter 22 was released back on 21 March 2017 in the May 2017 issue of V-Jump.
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 earlier last month 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, 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.
