This could potentially be classed as old news; however it’s been brought to our attention (thanks to listings on Amazon UK) that VIZ Media Europe will be publishing the English localised manga releases for Boruto: Naruto Next Generation and Dragon Ball Super.
As most manga (and anime) fans will already know both titles will further expand the timeline of each franchise; with Boruto: Naruto Next Generation focusing it’s attention on Naruto Uzumaki’s son Boruto Uzumaki and his exploits at becoming a shinobi along with friends Sarada and Mitsuki. Dragon Ball Super on the other hand expands the Dragon Ball Z story by seeing Goku attempting to become a Super Saiyan God and befriending the god of destruction known as Beerus. Dragon Ball Super has already been adapted into an anime series, with the series currently up to its seventy-seventh-episode; whereas an anime adaptation of the Boruto manga is expected to be released later this year.
In terms of release dates then VIZ Media Europe are planning to release the first volume of Boruto: Naruto Next Generation on the 20th April 2017, with a second volume to follow a few months later; whereas the first volume of Dragon Ball Super will be released on the 2nd May 2017.
