The popular Toyotarō manga following the adventures of Goku and friends in Dragon Ball Super will be returning with a new arc.
The Z Fighters, consisting of Earth’s mightiest super-powered heroes, save the planet from intergalactic and terrestrial threats. The manga, published in Shueisha’s V Jump magazine, premiered in June 2015. Although it is based on the Dragon Ball Super anime, it also deviates depending on the storyline.
During its special January 2023 edition, which hit shelves Nov. 21, the Dragon Ball Official Site and V Jump announced the return of the Dragon Ball Super manga, which returns to the magazine during the February 2023 edition, hitting newsstands on Dec. 21.
Celebrating the 12th anniversary of Dragon Ball Heroes, the January edition features a special 12th anniversary Dragon Ball Heroes booklet, a lot of Dragon Ball information, as well as bonus cards of Gohan Beast, who was featured in the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie over the summer.
The film — which earned the number one spot at the box office when it premiered on June 11— grossed more than $86.5 million worldwide. Fans assumed the manga would be about the events of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, but it will instead share a prequel story featuring the teenage heroes Goten and Trunks. The boys are half human and half Saiyan. Goten is the youngest son of Goku and Chi-Chi, while Trunks is the son of Vegeta and Bulma.
Readers can catch up with their favorite heroes by reading the manga free online at Viz Media or through a subscription of V Jump.
