Chougashuu cover

Chougashuu (超画集, Chōgashū; lit. "Super Art Collection") is a book of illustrations released in Japan on May 9, 2013.



1991 illustrations

The front cover features an artwork showing Goku firing a Kamehameha and which was first published in the 1990 Weekly Shōnen Jump #37; this illustration is also featured in Akira Toriyama - The World Special and Daizenshuu 1. The 240-page book contains a special poster and is composed of more than 400 illustrations drawn from 1985 to 2013,[1] including pictures that put the Dragon Ball characters in settings that were not present in the series and post-serialization illustrations. Like Daizenshuu 1, the illustrations range from battle poses to the Z Fighters playing baseball. Some of the new artwork content includes the Kanzenban cover illustrations, Akira Toriyama's Hoko×Tate drawing of Goku, Tōhoku earthquake/tsunami support image, and the Battle of Gods Super Collaboration Ticket drawing of Goku. The book ends with two special interviews with Akira Toriyama: the reprint of the Daizenshuu 1 interview ("Akira Toriyama Super Interview: Reprinted Edition") and an interview exclusive to the Chougashuu ("Akira Toriyama Super Interview: Latest Edition").
