Following a small tease in this month’s July 2017 issue of V-Jump magazine, Shueisha has revealed the cover art for the forthcoming third collected volume of the Dragon Ball Super manga:

Volume 3 of the Dragon Ball Super manga’s collected edition is due out in print in Japan 02 June 2017 for ¥400 spanning 208 pages. A digital release will follow 04 July 2017. The third volume is available for pre-order via CDJapan and Amazon Japan.

The first collected edition saw its release in April 2016 covering the series’ first nine chapters, one spin-off chapter, and a special interview between Toyotarō and original author Akira Toriyama. The second collected edition saw its release last November covering the next six chapters, one more spin-off chapter, and a special interview with Toyotarō. Since that volume’s release, an additional nine regular chapters have been serialized.

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-fourth chapter running this month in the magazine’s July 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 is now published digitally in English day-and-date with its Japanese print release. The company’s first English print volume was released 02 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, and a home release set to begin in July.
