Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' manga artist Toyotarō to launch manga on June 20

An image of Goku from Toyotarō's manga version of the upcoming Dragon Ball Super television anime series debuted on Thursday.

Toyotarō will launch the manga in the extra-large August issue of V Jump on June 20. Dragon Ball manga creator Akira Toriyama is credited with the manga's original story. Toyotarō previously drew the three-chapter manga adaptation of the recently released Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F (Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F') film.

Dragon Ball Super will premiere on Fuji TV and other channels in July on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. This will be the first new Dragon Ball television series since Dragon Ball GT, which aired from 1996 to 1997. The story of the anime is set a few years after the defeat of Majin Buu, when the Earth has become peaceful once again.

Toriyama is also credited as the original creator of the new anime, as well as for "original story & character concepts." Toei Animation's Kimitoshi Chioka (Hakaba Kitarō, Kamisama Kazoku) is the series director, and Naoko Sagawa (Yomiko Advertising, Inc.) and Atsushi Kido (Toei Animation) join Nozaki as producers. Kido entered Toei just as the company was animating the Dragon Ball Z anime's Frieza arc.

A new film taking place after the Majin Buu Saga, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F', premiered in Japan last month. The film will eventually screen in 74 countries worldwide. Funimation hosted the North American premiere of the film on April 11 in Los Angeles. The company plans to release the film in more theaters with an English dub this summer.

Update: Although V Jump is using this art of Goku by Toyotarō to promote the Dragon Ball Super manga, it also appeared in the Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F promotion. Thanks, garfield15
