Dragon Ball Super: Broly's events are now firmly established in the chronology of the manga.

According to Screenrant, Chapter 93 of the Dragon Ball Super manga revealed that the recruitment of Broly by Frieza and the epic clash between the juggernaut and Goku and Vegeta took place not long after the Tournament of Power was over. This implies that the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga took place later, potentially resolving a reader controversy.


How Chapter 93 Connected With the Broly Movie

Chapter 93 sees a break in the Dragon Super manga's current storyline, which is adapting the events of the Dragon Ball Super: Super Movie. The most recent film was released in June 2022 and grossed over 13.8 billion yen worldwide. The plot switches away from Goku and Vegeta, focusing on the connection between Gohan and his instructor Piccolo. The wicked Red Ribbon Army, as well as one of the franchise's most iconic and lethal villains, make a return.

The manga's description of the events in the film remains pretty faithful, which has irritated some readers due to the recurrence. It does, however, change the problematic scene from Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero in which Goku criticizes Vegeta for meditating as a sort of training. Goku instead praises Vegeta's character development in the adaption.


Dragon Ball fans have more to look forward to than seeing the two most recent movies translated into the ongoing manga. Notably, new collectibles are now for preorder on Sideshow. Merchandise manufacturer Jimei Palace recently revealed limited edition figurines of Majin Buu and Kid Buu that come together as a set and retail for $800. Similarly, Tamashii Nations unveiled an epic statue that showcases Gohan's new powerful transformation from Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Selling for $110, the item will begin shipping sometime in November.

The twentieth movie in the long-running franchise, Dragon Ball Super: Broly premiered in December 2018 and serves as the reintroduction of the titular Saiyan to the canon, mainline story. Not only is it one of the highest-grossing anime films of all time -- alongside classics like Pokémon: The Movie 2000 and Yo-kai Watch: The Movie -- but Broly currently stands as the second most profitable movie in the Dragon Ball franchise as a whole with an impressive worldwide box office of 13.5 billion yen.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly stars Bin Shimada as Broly, Masako Nozawa as Goku, Ryō Horikawa as Vegeta and Ryūsei Nakao as Frieza. The film is available to rent through Amazon Prime Video.
