Japanese “Dragon Ball Super” Manga Collected Edition Vol. 11 Releasing in December 2019
Published by 18 October 2019, 9:49 AM EDT

Shueisha and online retailers have listed an 04 December 2019 release date for the eleventh collected volume of Toyotarō’s Dragon Ball Super manga series, which will retail for ¥440 (+ tax) in print. The volume will pick up with the forty-ninth chapter of the series; the tenth collected volume saw its release in Japan back in August spanning chapters 45-48.

The volume will release the same day alongside the collected volume release of the Dragon Ball GT anime comic.

The Dragon Ball Super “comicalization” began in June 2015, initially just ahead of the television series, and running both ahead and behind the series at various points. The manga runs monthly in Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine, with the series’ fifty-third chapter coming next week in the magazine’s December 2019 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, “speeding up the excitement of the TV anime even more”. Though the television series has completed its run, the manga continues onward, entering its own original “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” arc. Viz is currently releasing free digital chapters of the series, and began their own collected print edition back in 2017. The seventh collected volume is due from Viz this December.

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 having just wrapped its broadcast on Cartoon Network, and the home video release reaching its tenth and final box set in January 2020.
