Where does Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero fit into the manga canon?

Producer of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Akio Iyoku had the opportunity to respond on where the narrative fits into the manga’s canon.

Until then, the only concrete information is that it is a continuation of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, taking place a few months later.

‎”Between this movie and the publication of Toyotaro-sensei’s manga, we currently have two lines of ‎‎Dragon Ball Super‎‎ in progress. For starters, the writing happened ‎‎purely as a sequel to Dragon Ball Super: Broly. We wanted to meet the expectations of everyone who’s been stuck on Dragon Ball so far, along the lines of, ‘It would be cool for that to happen.’ Or, ‘I hope this character appears.’

explained to V-Jump.

‎”And in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump, we have the ongoing story of Goku and Vegeta. We will see new strong enemies appear, and new arcs will emerge, and events will continue to progress. ‎‎Of course, Toriyama diligently oversees the manga’s story, so it’s like we have these events running in parallel‎‎. In terms of timeline placement, we try not to build things too strictly – we would like to leave some margins, to allow for a greater degree of freedom.”‎

Dragon Ball Super: Superhero is available in Japanese cinemas. The film will also arrive in the rest of the world (including Brazil) on August 18, thanks to Crunchyroll.

With their capes swinging, Gama 1 and Gama 2 can be seen striking some amazing poses! Also, there are some new original characters that we’ll have to wait and find out more about, no matter how difficult that might be!

The plot takes place after the events of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, where Broly, until then known as the legendary Super Saiyan, was eventually defeated by Gogeta. Now, he spends his days on the alien planet he calls home.
