Following a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it tease last month in V-Jump, Amazon Japan has given a specific 04 September 2018 release date for the upcoming seventh collected volume of Toyotarō’s Dragon Ball Super manga.
The volume will pick up with the thirty-third chapter of the series. The series’ sixth collected volume saw its release in Japan last 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-eighth chapter coming tomorrow in the magazine’s September 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 was released in English from Viz earlier this month.
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 last month.
