Published by 22 January 2023, 3:31 PM EST

The ninth collected volume of Dragon Ball SD is on its way from Shueisha, with a catalog entry noting an 03 March 2023 release date, clocking in at 192 pages and running at ¥748 + tax.

The release will mark just under a year since the eighth collected volume. The ninth collected volume should pick up from Piccolo’s battle with Freeza in Dragon Ball SD chapter 79.

Dragon Ball SD was a stalwart of Saikyō Jump dating back to its original debut issue, adapting events from the original story in humorous new ways with “chibi” or “super deformed” (the titular “SD”) styled characters. After the original four quarterly issues of the magazine and SD covering four distinct time periods, the magazine shifted to a monthly release and SD reverted back to the proper beginning of the series with a continuous storyline. In 2016, the series skipped ahead from the end of the 22nd Tenka’ichi Budōkai to the Saiyan arc. In conjunction with Saikyō Jump‘s big format refresh in 2021, Dragon Ball SD was moved out of the magazine to a digital-only series on the company’s official YouTube channel; the series briefly returned to print in the August 2022 issue for a special chapter promoting the theatrical film Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.

Dragon Ball SD is not available in English, though it does currently see a release in certain territories such as Germany and France.
