“Dragon Ball Super” to get an Official Manga Adaptation



Akira Toriyama’s sequel series to the highly popular Dragon Ball Z gets even better.

Though we still do not know a whole lot about what the series will feature outside of the two theatrical films over the past couple years, perhaps the most exciting aspect of DBS is that it not only will be considered canon with the rest of the manga and majority of the anime series, but also that it is being written by original creator Akira Toriyama himself. 

V-Jump is set to run the manga most likely along the series release this July in Japan. No word on when we will be getting an English sub/dub on the anime or a translation for the manga, but sources close to us tell us “sooner than you think”, whenever that is. Take a look at the Shonen Gamez translation below:

Dragon Ball Super is the first Dragon Ball Series to debut on television in over 18 years and plans to overwrite the events of DBGT as DBS takes places just after the events of Majin Buu’s defeat (and after this years Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’). 

The news of a new series broke a few weeks ago in April, and fans have been hyped ever since, practically begging for more information on what is to come of their beloved franchise.

We broke down what to expect of the series, as most events in DBGT can be completely ignored or discredited due to no canon tie-in, but the sheer fact that Dragon Ball Super will have a manga adaptation promises to appease the die-hard fans that tend to discredit any manga that isn’t based on manga.
