Shueisha has listed an 04 December 2020 release date for the fourteenth 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 sixty-first chapter of the series.
While the volume is available for pre-order on Amazon Japan, the current listing does not necessarily provide international shipping; this arbitrary restriction has occurred with previous releases, and historically has been lifted closer to the volume’s actual release date.
Shueisha will also release the first collected volume of Yoshitaka Nagayama’s Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Big Bang Mission!!! manga series that same day.
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’ sixty-fifth chapter coming last week in the magazine’s December 2020 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 eleventh collected volume is due out 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 wrapped its broadcast on Cartoon Network, and the home video release reaching its tenth and final box set back in January.
