The art from the cover is basically the art for the title page of the final chapter of the manga. Looks great either way.

Seeing as this comes out tomorrow, I thought it'd be a good idea to bump this so we have a single place to discuss the book's content, rather than scattering it across several threads.

As we saw in the DB Super sub-forum, some people already have their copies.

I heard Togashi, Sorachi, Araki, Murata and Inoue drew pictures for the anniversary and had comments. I'm excited to see all of them! Obata is doing one too, that will be interesting

I hope those are the 1st things translated tbh lol

Ooooh, really? We've had other artists do renditions of the series before for a previous anniversary (it seems to be a fairly regular thing for fellow manga artists to do for major title anniversaries, actually), I hope this is true and we get to see them pretty soon.

I made a topic some time ago but Murata actually livestreamed his drawing. It was of SSJ Goku and 4th form Freeza when they fought on Namek. He said that he wasn't good at drawing Goku and here I am looking it live, going like "you're insane" :lol:

Oda, Kishimoto, Kubo and "others" are drawing as well.

I'm really hoping two of the 'others' are Masakazu Katsura and Nobuhiro Watsuki. Katsura seems like an obvious in, given he and Toriyama's friendship and collaborations (...did...their new thing that was supposed to be coming out ever actually come out yet?), but Watsuki never did one the first time around sadly, so I dunno if I'll be that lucky this time either.

I'd also be curious to see what Hiro Mashima might do, or even Natsuki Takaya, but the latter one is definitely a long shot.

I'm hoping for Watsuki and Katsura ones as well. I hope whatever long comments get translated.

Well, this account is tweeting the pics, hopefully Herms or kei17 or someone can translate the comments if they have the time; Togashi's Goku is interesting https://twitter.com/Animeland_mag

Oh wow. XD That Gokû drawing is something else.

Even though Oda's Yamcha has Luffy!Face, it's still an interesting character pick.

And of course Food Wars guy drew 18. XD

Togashi actually drew something? Isn't that like one of the signs of the apocalypse? :P

Do we know if there are more pictures in there, or is just those six?

Togashi is alive?! :lol: Waiting for HxH comeback since ever!
I love how dark his Goku is. Maybe a reflection of Gon's future...

By the way, this is interesting:

There's more. GojitaAF showed 4 more, one of them looks like Kid Goku in the 1st chapter by Inoue. Murata's is shown too and its great

Ok I found a video with them all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ew6RO21iuxs

Timestamps are 10:34, 14:15 and 18:21; Sorachi drew the Bardock at 14:17 I think and the last one is Nobuhiro Watsuki's.

Sorachi drew Bardock?! I was expecting Yamcha coming from him.
Seems to be a perfect book for a Dragon Ball fan. But a shame it won't be translated.

I was expecting that too lol. Oda did a Yamcha however. I recognize Tetsuo Hara too, his SSJ Goku looks like Raoh a bit.
