Dragon Ball Super Manga Returns With New Arc in December

Nov 17, 2022 · 12


A new story arc for the Dragon Ball Super manga begins in December with the publication of Chapter 88.

According to an official magazine advertisement, presumably taken from Shueisha's V Jump, the Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 is due for release on Dec. 20. The chapter beings a brand-new arc, which serves as a direct prequel to the events of the anime film Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, which premiered earlier this year. This new arc evidently focuses heavily on the duo of Goten and Trunks, with Gohan and Piccolo also set to be key players.

Written by the legendary Akira Toriyama and illustrated by Toyotarou, Dragon Ball Super originally launched in 2015. The manga serves as a follow-up to Toriyama's original Dragon Ball manga, which ran for 519 chapters -- split across 42 volumes -- from 1984 to 1995. To date, Dragon Ball Super has published 87 chapters in V Jump, with the first 84 chapters being collected in 19 tankōbon volumes thus far.

Dragon Ball Super's New Arc Leads Into Super Hero

Like Dragon Ball before it, Dragon Ball Super received an anime adaptation which ran for a total of 131 episodes from 2015 to 2017. A feature film, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, premiered in theaters in 2018. It was followed up by a sequel, the aforementioned Super Hero, which bowed in Japan this past June before getting a worldwide release in August.

"The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku," the official synopsis for the recent feature reads. "Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves “Super Heroes”. They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan... What is the New Red Ribbon Army's objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!"

In addition to being the second film to carry the Dragon Ball Super branding, Super Hero is also the 21st Dragon Ball anime film overall. The film was a considerable box office success, earning $124.6 million worldwide to become the second-highest-grossing Dragon Ball movie ever, behind Broly. That said, Super Hero managed to topBroly in the United States.
