Viz “Dragon Ball Super” Manga Volume 1 English Promotional Video
Published by 25 April 2017, 2:39 PM EDT

Ahead of next week’s release, Viz has uploaded a promotional video in support of the first Dragon Ball Super manga volume’s English translation.

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-third chapter coming earlier this week in the magazine’s June 2017 issue; the chapter was published digitally in English the same day by Viz. 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; the first print volume is set for release 02 May 2017 followed by the second volume 05 December 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, and a home release set to begin in July.
