This volume was included as a separate, promotional pack-in alongside the January 2017 issue of Saikyō Jump in Japan, released 02 December 2016. That same day, the series’ second collected edition (covering chapters 10-15) was also released. The series’ nineteenth chapter would be released a couple weeks later in the February 2017 issue of V-Jump.
The title for the collected volume — 神と神 (Kami to Kami or “God and God”) — is taken directly from the fourth chapter‘s title, and originally from the 2013 theatrical film‘s title (which was adapted into a separate English title of “Battle of Gods”).
The table of contents includes a stylized dragon leaning atop the chapter listing (the same as seen in the first collected volume), followed a chibi-fied collection of characters (also reused from the first collected volume).
Following the four chapters, a four-page “Dragon Ball Super Information” column previews the manga’s first and second collected editions, the Universe 6 vs. 7 tournament, the then-new Future Trunks arc, as well as briefly mentioning the Dragon Ball Heroes and Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 video games. This “Information” section is labeled as spanning pages 72-75, with page 74 specifically (and somewhat strangely) also sectioned out as its own “V-Jump News” section.
- The four chapters presented in this volume were originally serialized in the June 2015 through September 2015 issues of Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine on a monthly basis.
