Viz’s seventeenth collected volume of the Dragon Ball Super manga will be released 06 December 2022, covering chapters 73-76 (a la its Japanese counterpart):
The battle between Granolah, Goku, and Vegeta continues on planet Cereal. With Granolah being the greatest warrior in the entire universe thanks to the power of the Dragon Balls, the two Saiyans struggle to hold their ground against their vengeful foe. Despite this battle being fueled by the lies and manipulation of the Heeters, Granolah’s burning drive for revenge has him convinced that this is a fight worth dying for! And that’s exactly what the Heeters were hoping for. Sensing something is amiss, Vegeta slowly puts the pieces together on why Granolah hates the Saiyans so much. But will he be able to figure out the truth in time? And will Granolah even be willing to listen?!
The volume is available for pre-order at Amazon at its $9.99 MSRP.
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’ eighty-first chapter recently hitting in the magazine’s April 2022 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, moving into its own original “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” and “Granolla the Survivor” arcs. Viz is currently releasing free digital chapters of the series, and began their own collected print edition back in 2017. The sixteenth volume is due out in August 2022 ahead of this newly-announced seventeenth volume in 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 2020.
