Dragon Ball Super’s manga kicked off a special prequel arc leading into the events of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero last year, and featuring a teenage Goten and Trunks in the starring role.

Dragon Ball Super’s manga has officially kickstarted the Super Hero arc of the franchise with its take on the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie. Chapter 91 picks up right around the events of the beginning of the feature film, but has already begun to reveal the smaller changes the manga will make in order to keep this a fresh experience for fans over the next year of releases. But this all begins with the release of Dragon Ball Super Chapter 91, that you can find for free through Viz Media’s digital Shonen Jump library:

What to Know for Dragon Ball Super’s Super Hero Arc
Dragon Ball Super manga Chapter 91 starts just like Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero does. Gone is the focus on Goten and Trunks as Piccolo and Gohan have taken the center stage against the main threats this time around. Dr. Hedo has been approached by the final remnants of the Red Ribbon Army, and is inspired to build heroic androids to fight against what has been deemed threats against the Earth like the “Demon King” Piccolo, Goku, and many of the usual Z Fighter allies.
There are already a few changes expanding on the material fans likely have already seen in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, and Dragon Ball Super Chapter 91 demonstrates how the manga will likely be able to further flesh out some of the moments in the movie fans might want to see more of. With the cliffhanger leading to the first major battle in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, soon we’ll see what th Dragon Ball Super manga does with this story.
