Dragon Ball Super Manga Launches 'Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc' Next Month
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's January issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine announced on Wednesday that Toyotarō's Dragon Ball Super manga will launch a new "Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc" in the next issue on December 21. This month's chapter 42 finished the manga's version of the events of the Dragon Ball Super anime before introducing new characters for the new arc.
The middle of the 42nd chapter also included a brief and vague recap of the Dragon Ball Super: Broly film, suggesting that the manga will skip the events of the film.
Toyotarō launched the manga in V Jump magazine in June 2015 as an adaptation of the Dragon Ball Super anime, though the manga diverges from the anime in several ways. Viz Media is publishing the manga online as it debuts in Japan, and will publish the fourth compiled volume on January 1.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly had its world premiere event at Nippon Budokan on November 14, and will open in Japan on December 14. The English dub will have its world premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood on December 13, and then open in the United States and Canada on January 16. The film's story will take place after the Dragon Ball Super anime, and it will get a novel adaptation.
