The second volume’s dust jacket features a new cover illustration by Toyotarō with Universe 6 competitor Hit over top the Universe 6 team and a looming Son Goku. The back cover features Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta along with a doodle of the Pilaf trio painting the Jump Comics logo.
The included obi promotes the monthly release of Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine (where the Dragon Ball Super manga is serialized). Other products featured are the “Full Color” version of the manga release and the 30th anniversary “Super History Book”.
The title for the collected volume — 優勝宇宙、ついに決定！！ (Yūshō Uchū, Tsui ni Kettei!! or “The Winning Universe is Decided at Last!!”) — is taken directly from the thirteenth chapter‘s title.
The volume’s standard front cover is a desaturated version of the dust jacket’s front cover, while the back cover is a complementary illustration of Goku and the Universe 7 team atop a looming Hit.
The inside title page showcases super-deformed versions of Whis, Beerus, Goku, Vados, Champa, and Hit running around the tournament’s planet. Two pages of character profiles and a brief summary showcase the main competitors. The table of contents features the tournament song performance with Beerus and Champa on either side.
To fill out the necessary page count, Toyotarō supplies new drawings between chapters. These are mostly humorous, such as Frost applying the poison to his armored tip.
Comic content ends with the two-page bonus comic from the Jump Victory Carnival 2016 attendee booklet.
The volume wraps up with a two-page “Toyotarō-sensei‘s Super Anatomy!!!” interview, in which Toyotarō discusses his writing and drafting process under the guidance of original creator Akira Toriyama.
This collected volume has seen various international and translated releases:
The collected edition removes the splash text, title, and Toyotarō/Toriyama credits in the Jump Victory Carnival 2016 attendee booklet bonus comic.
As with most Dragon Ball products released, Akira Toriyama received an “Original Author” (原作 or gensaku) credit indicating his work and authorship of the original Dragon Ball series. Toyotarō is credited for the comic itself (漫画 or manga), stylized here as “Toyotarou”.
