A new listing on Amazon Japan pegs the fifth collected volume of the Dragon Ball Super manga for release on 02 March 2018.
The fifth volume should pick up with the series’ 25th chapter. Though the listing is currently only for a digital version, this follows Amazon Japan’s recent listing for the digital edition of Dragon Ball SD‘s fifth volume, whose full print and digital release was revealed shortly thereafter by Shueisha.
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’ thirty-second chapter due this Saturday in the magazine’s March 2018 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 began their own collected print edition earlier this year. The third collected volume is due out in English from Viz in July 2018, while the fourth collected volume was released by Shueisha in Japan last month.
The Dragon Ball Super television series airs Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. on Fuji TV in Japan. The series now receives weekly simulcast streams on services such as Crunchyroll. FUNimation has also announced their American streaming and distribution license for the series, with the English dub beginning earlier this year on Cartoon Network, while the home video release also kicked off this summer.
