Official Gohan Beast Art Hints at the Anticipated Return of Dragon Ball Super

It's been on hiatus since the passing of creator Akira Toriyama

While the Dragon Ball Super manga still has yet to return, following the passing of creator Akira Toriyama, a glimmer of hope has emerged.

New artwork featuring Gohan’s powerful “Beast” form has been released, courtesy of Toyotarou, the artist behind the manga. This exciting reveal serves as a bridge during the hiatus and fuels anticipation for the series’ return.

Toyotarou, who previously collaborated with Toriyama on various Dragon Ball projects, is seen by many as the chosen successor to carry the torch. The new artwork is part of a special project intended to keep fans engaged until the manga resumes.

Gohan Beast, first introduced in the 2022 anime movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is Gohan’s strongest transformation to date. It awakens after a near-fatal attack on Piccolo, mirroring the iconic sacrifice Piccolo made for a young Gohan in the “Saiyan Saga” of Dragon Ball Z.

The CG-animated Super Hero movie is a treat for longtime fans, packed with references to classic storylines and answers to burning questions. The Red Ribbon Army returns as the main villain, seeking revenge on Goku and his friends.

Super Hero breaks tradition by pushing Goku and Vegeta to the side. Instead, Piccolo, Gohan, and even his daughter Pan take center stage, showcasing their power and growth.

While the Dragon Ball Super manga adapted the superhero story, it expands on elements like the relationship between Trunks and Mai. The epilogue arc truly shines, featuring Gohan testing his newfound power against his father and other Saiyans.

The final chapter of the current arc serves as an unintentional goodbye from Toriyama. It features Piccolo waving goodbye to the reader alongside Goku, Gohan, and Pan.

There’s no official word on the manga’s return date, but the official website confirms that Dragon Ball Super will eventually resume with a new story arc. This news, coupled with the new artwork, offers a hopeful outlook for the future of the series.
