Last months issue of V-Jump revealed publisher Shueisha will be reprinting the Dragon Ball manga in full color! This months issue, through a special bonus item, previews pages of the manga in that vibrant color!
The first three volumes of the fully colored Dragon Ball manga, scheduled for a February 4th release, will cover the Saiyan Saga and be comprised of 17 chapters and 248 pages each! The Freeza Saga, planned for released on April 04, 2013, will be comprised of five volumes. The Cell Saga and Buu Saga are planned, but a release date has not yet been announced.
The manga will include a special interview with Akira Toriyama, who is said to clear up many mysteries in the Dragon Ball world.
The Saiyan Saga to Buu Saga, which many of you here on Saiyan Island’s equate to as Dragon Ball Z, will be released in a physical format in the same size as normal Jump manga. Shueisha plans to release the chapters before the Saiyan Saga, known to most of us as just Dragon Ball, at an unknown date in the future in digital only format.
All dates listed are for Japanese release. No word on if North America or Europe will be treated to the full color Dragon Ball manga.
