The ninth volume’s dust jacket features an illustration by Toyotarō with Son Goku fighting against Jiren. On the back cover, No. 17 extends a hand toward Freeza while Hit sulks on the side.
The included obi promotes the Dragon Ball Super: Broly Film Anime Comic set for release that May, as well as the recently-begun “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” arc exclusive to the manga.
The title for the collected volume — 決着と結末 (Ketchaku to Ketsumatsu or “Battle’s End and Aftermath”) — is taken directly from the forty-second 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 an alternate version featuring Vegeta taking on Jiren.
The inside title page showcases a sketch of Son Goku and Vegeta, while the table of contents features the angels Awamo, Souwa, and Camparri.
To fill out the necessary page count, Toyotarō supplies new drawings between chapters, with this volume featuring the Universe 11 team lineup, Gogeta noting to Broli that their story has been skipped, and the Macareni siblings being led off in Galactic Patrol handcuffs. Though two additional pages worth of content are added into chapter 42, no interviews or supplemental chapters are included.
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; gensaku) credit indicating his work and authorship of the original Dragon Ball series. Toyotarō is credited for the comic itself (漫画; manga), stylized here as “Toyotarou”.
