The cover of Chapter 5

Dragon Ball Super (ドラゴンボール超, Doragon Bōru Sūpā) is a Japanese manga and sequel to the Dragon Ball Z anime and Dragon Ball manga. The manga is also being released in English by Viz Media.

A Dragon Ball Super anime is being produced alongside the manga. The manga is a serialized publication in V-Jump's monthly printing.


Akira Toriyama writes plot outlines which Toyotarō uses as a basis for the stories and Toriyama personally helps put the manga together. Toyotarō creates the dialogue and illustrations, expanding, adding, and changing elements from Toriyama's plan as he deems appropriate. Akira Toriyama believes Toyotarō's freedom to change the story makes the final product better.[1] Akira Toriyama also checks through all of Toyotarō's storyboards for the manga.[2][1]

Akira Toriyama has a very positive view of Toyotarō's manga, noting that Toyotarō is always accurate when drawing the manga, unlike with the anime where he always has to ask for things to be fixed,[2] and is grateful that Toyotarō is drawing the continuation of his story. He also believes that if the animators for the anime use Toyotarō's manga as a reference it will keep them on track.[1]
