Last week’s August 2018 issue of Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine includes a tiny splash announcing that the seventh collected volume of the Dragon Ball Super manga will release in Japan later this year in September. No precise date or chapter count is noted in the announcement.
The volume will pick up with the thirty-third chapter of the series. The series’ sixth collected volume saw its release in Japan earlier this month spanning chapters 29 to 32.
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-seventh chapter coming last week in the magazine’s August 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. Though the television series has completed its run, the manga continues onward telling its own version of the existing story. Viz is currently releasing free digital chapters of the series, and began their own collected print edition early last year. The third collected volume is due out in English from Viz in July 2018.
The Dragon Ball Super television series concluded in March 2018 with 131 total episodes. FUNimation owns the American distribution license for the series, with the English dub airing on Cartoon Network, and the home video release reaching its fourth box set this month.
