The seventh volume’s dust jacket features an illustration by Toyotarō with various Gods of Destruction, led by Universe 7’s Beerus, popping out of the frame. Champa and a circular frame with various Kaiōshin are featured on the back cover.
The included obi promotes the Dragon Ball Official Site’s ongoing news posts, the then-forthcoming Dragon Ball Super: Broly theatrical film in December 2018, and monthly release of Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine (where the Dragon Ball Super manga is serialized).
Have you even been reading these books?!
I’ll do my best to make this a manga everyone will want to read…
The title for the collected volume — 宇宙サバイバル！力の大会開始！ (Uchū Sabaibaru! Chikara no Taikai Kaishi! or “Universe Survival! The Tournament of Power Begins!”) — is taken directly from the thirty-third 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 new, complementary illustration of various angels (roughly in the same position as their respective gods from the front cover, with two additional angels also pictured).
The inside title page showcases a sketch of Son Goku, while the table of contents features Gods of Destruction Beerus, Liquir, and Sidra.
To fill out the necessary page count, Toyotarō supplies new drawings between chapters, with this volume exclusively featuring team lineups (specifically the Universes 7, 9, and 6 teams). No bonus chapters are included (with the Jump Victory Carnival 2018 bonus chapter being the only non-collected material as of this volume’s publication). “Corrections Done by Toriyama-sensei Himself” make a reappearance from the the third and sixth collected volumes, with a brief showcase of character design and dialog adjustments.
This collected volume has seen various international and translated releases:
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”.
