Female Saiyan Caulifla Makes Her Debut in Dragon Ball Super

On this week’s Dragon Ball Super, a character we have been teased multiple times finally made her debut–a female Saiyan, now known as Caulifla, a pun on the word “Cauliflower”, keeping in tune with the theme of Saiyan names bearing those of vegetables.

Another female Saiyan character was first teased in the preview trailer for the “Universe Survival Arc” of Dragon Ball Super. She was shown for an instant in her base form before transforming into a buff and meaty Super Saiyan resembling a character we all know and love. The same scene, minus the base form, is also shown in the opening theme.

Caulifa’s character was officially introduced in the June edition of V-Jump, giving us more information about her, which you can read down below.

HERE COME A NEW SAIYAN!!!
The participation of a new, powerful warrior is introduced along with information about a thrilling, highly anticipated event!!

Main topic!! A female Saiyan at last!!!
A new Saiyan is confirmed to appear in “DB Super”!! Where does she come from? Universe 6? Universe 7? In any case, there’s no doubt we need to pay close attention to her!!!

Made Official by Akira Toriyama’s Character Sheet!!!
She’s supposed to be a Saiyan, but…
If you look closely at her lower back on the model sheet, she’s supposedly a Saiyan, but she has no tail!?

And the new Saiyan in the opening animation?!
There was already a female Saiyan revealed in the opening animation!!

Translated by our own DBEternity/nemurenatta.

Finally, on episode 88 of Dragon Ball Super, the character (and her name in the credits) officially debuted, revealed as a Saiyan from Universe 6, like Cabba. She also has an older brother, whose name is Rensou, a pun on the Japanese word for “spinach” (菠薐草, hourensou).

The V-Jump article makes her seem very important, so of course, we will keep an eye on Caulifla as the series progresses into the Tournament of Power.

Viz Media Uploads Official Trailer for “Dragon Ball Super” Manga

Earlier today, Viz Media uploaded an official trailer for their upcoming English-language release of the Dragon Ball Super manga adaptation to their YouTube channel. The trailer focuses on Goku’s battle with Beerus, the God of Destruction, although the first volume of the manga also features content from the Universe 6/Champa arc as well (as the manga skips the Resurrection ‘F’ arc of the anime in order to further advertise the television anime, it goes straight from the Battle of Gods arc to Champa).

Viz Media began releasing official chapters of Dragon Ball Super for free on their website back in June 2016 and has now caught up with the Japanese release, releasing the twenty-third chapter of the manga the same day it was released in V-Jump‘s June 2017 issue. While Viz continues to provide free digital chapters, it will also release print editions of the manga, beginning with volume one on May 2 and volume two on December 5, 2017.

Viz “Dragon Ball Super” Manga Vol.1 to Release May 2

Everyone (well, mostly everyone) has been waiting for it! The print edition of Dragon Ball Super, Vol.1 is now (and has been) available to preorder. With a release date of May 2, 2017, the 192 page paperback can be ordered on Amazon for just $9.99!

Goku’s adventure from the best-selling classic manga Dragon Ball continues in this new series written by Akira Toriyama himself!

Ever since Goku became Earth’s greatest hero and gathered the seven Dragon Balls to defeat the evil Boo, his life on Earth has grown a little dull. But new threats loom overhead, and Goku and his friends will have to defend the planet once again in this continuation of Akira Toriyama’s best-selling series, Dragon Ball!

Having defeated Boo, Goku is starting to get bored with his life on Earth. His wife, Chi-chi, wants him to get a job, but all he wants to do is train and fight stronger enemies. Elsewhere in the universe, the God of Destruction, Beerus, and his attendant Whis are traveling from planet to planet in search of food and entertainment. After blowing up some hapless victims, Beerus is reminded of a man from his dreams with the moniker “Super Saiyan God,” or something like that… The God of Destruction sets his sights on Earth to track down this mysterious man! Maybe this will give Goku something to do?

The Dragon Ball Super manga adaptation is illustrated by Toyotarō, who is also the author of Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission and his recent manga adaptation of Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F. The manga is released exclusively in Japan in Shueisha’s V-Jump, and now for the first time digitally in English by Viz Media. A print edition on the manga will be released in May 2017. The Dragon Ball Super TV series can also be viewed by way of simulcast on streaming services such as Crunchyroll and Daisuki, and in English on Toonami’s Adult Swim.
