If those three Frieza-like characters appear in the upcoming manga, I think I have an idea. Bardock becomes super saiyan and kills Frieza. Then after awhile those three show up and kill Bardock and destroy Planet Vegeta....

Anyone have any thought?

Amazon Japan's insane shipping prices are justified by insane shipping speed, so I got the August issue today. Here's a quick summary of the first chapter:

(Spoilers, obviously.)
Like the end of the TV special, Bardock tries to attack Freeza's ship in space. They have a short conversation where Freeza says he's sick of working with Saiyans, then he launches a blast to blow up Planet Vegeta. But instead of dying, Bardock wakes up in a bed on a planet that looks a lot like Planet Vegeta. He's being treated by some weird alien guys (look a little like Gure's race). Ipana, the village doctor, and his little son Berry. Bardock thinks the medicine being used to heal him is similar to the fluid in Medical Machines. Ipana says this is Planet Plant, so Bardock starts to wonder if he's in the past.

Two guys arrive in a spaceship and declare they're gonna conquer Planet Plant. Toobi (looks kind of like the beetle guy from the afterlife tournament), and Kyabira (bigger guy with a shark fin on his head). Bardock kills them, and all the villagers come to thank him, but he says he doesn't give a shit about them and flies away to hang out in a cave. Berry arrives at the cave with a basket of food, and Bardock acts like a dick to him, but eventually accepts it. Berry comes back again with food multiple times, and Bardock seems to be growing tolerant of him. Meanwhile, Chilled (Chirudo, member of Freeza's race) says it's been 10 days since they've heard from Toobi and Kyabira, so he decides to investigate Planet Plant himself.

My theory is that Bardock might've gone back 1,000 years, so he's going to turn out to be the legendary Super Saiyan. But the dialogue at Freeza's spaceship seems a lot different from the dialogue of that scene in the TV special, so maybe they're not necessarily trying to fit it into the series timeline like that.

I can't do scans right now, but I could try to post a few photos and other details when I get a chance.

I spoke too soon, because I just noticed the page before the manga starts says exactly that. There's a blurb that describes what the TV special was (broadcast 21 years ago, etc), then says this manga is a sequel to it. There's also a timeline describing the events of the TV special, and the final line of the timeline says, "However, Bardock lived!! You'll know the truth by reading this story!!" There's also a blurb that says Toriyama designed Chilled.

Anyway, here are some photos. Uploaded them to Imgur so my own bandwidth wouldn't get destroyed, so feel free to link them wherever else you want.

Here's the katakana for all the new character names, by the way. I don't know what most of the puns are, if anything.

Ipana: イパナ
Berry: ベリー
Kyabira: キャビラ
Toobi: トービ
Chilled: チルド

Could be caterpillar (キャタピラー) and beetle (ビートル). Kinda like those two guys from the Anoyoichi-Budokai, in the anime...

Toobi, or not Toobi, that is the question.

Ipana was also the name of a toothpaste apparently:

So this V-Jump manga is a direct sequel to the TV special, cool. I just thought she was going to do some random story that altered the events of the TV Special completely.

I'm not entirely convinced by those pages. For instance, the fight scene should look a lot more chaotic, yet sharp. And some panels.....I don't know. A bit iffy.


BUT, she's obviously doing her best and it's turning out great. :mrgreen:

This sounds a lot more interesting now.
Looks like Ooishi is the future of the franchise manga-wise.

Yup, from what I've seen up until now it's not bad looking and it's a lot more intriguing story wise than most DB related things to come out in the past few years, but I will have to see the whole chapter first to form a correct opinion.

Oh my gosh, I'm dying for Translations of these. I'm really into these alternate story lines.

Well, you know what I mean. If it's not from Toriyama, it's alternate to me.

Hmm... might be interesting. Does this get free shipping from Play-Asia?
