The release will mark about a year and a half since the sixth collected volume, no doubt due to the current bimonthly schedule of Saikyō Jump where Naho Ooishi’s “chibi” spin-off manga is serialized, as well as the series’ brief hiatus earlier this year. The seventh collected volume will pick up with Bulma, Kuririn, and Gohan’s trip to Namek and Freeza’s introduction in Dragon Ball SD chapter 59.
The January 2021 issue of Saikyō Jump (released earlier this month), contained the spin-off manga’s 68th chapter since its 2011/2012 reboot. In 2016, the series skipped ahead from the end of the 22nd Tenka’ichi Budōkai to the Saiyan arc. Other than brief absences in the January 2017 and November 2020 issues, Dragon Ball SD has run in each and every issue of Saikyō Jump since its 2011 debut throughout all of its format and release changes.
