After the Granolah the Survivor Saga concluded in the the latest Dragon Ball Super manga chapter, fans of the popular shonen franchise are wondering when the next arc will begin and when the next chapter will be released. Publisher Shueisha, creator Akira Toriyama, and artist Toyotarou haven't revealed much details about the next Dragon Ball Super manga chapter and the next arc yet, fans already have some expectations about what will come next for Goku, Vegeta, and the rest of the Z-Fighters.
Unfortunately, it's already confirmed that the next Dragon Ball Super chapter is not coming in November 2022, so one of the biggest questions manga readers are asking now is "When is Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 coming?"
Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 Release Date Prediction
When Dragon Ball Super Chapter 87 was released in August 2022, the publisher noted that the shonen manga series by Akira Toriyama and Toyotarou will be taking a short hiatus before the next arc will begin. As expected, Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 was not released in September 2022, and while some fans speculated that the next chapter will be released in November 2022, there were no previews and leaks that typically indicate that a new chapter is coming soon.
Since Shueisha hasn't revealed any details about Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 or next arc, it's hard to say when exactly when the next chapter will be officially released, but the hiatus will likely only last for a few months, so our prediction is that Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 will come out by December 2022 or Q1 2023.
What will Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 be about?
Since Dragon Ball Super Chapter 87 was released in August 2022, fans have been speculating that the next arc will involve Frieza. The iconic villain made a surprising return in Chapter 87, ultimately taking down Gas and Elec of the villainous Heeter Force in Planet Cereal. He also revealed that he was able to unlock his most powerful transformation yet, Black Frieza, thanks to the mysterious room where he's able to squeeze 10 years of training in a short period of time.
At the end of Chapter 87, Whis tells Goku and Vegeta that the Strongest Warrior in the universe might have "emerged elsewhere in our universe."
Fans are wondering if Goku and Vegeta will be able to train enough, so that they could become powerful enough to defeat Black Frieza, or if there will be another villain involved in the next arc. Some fans are speculating that the next arc might be called Black Frieza Arc, but at the time of this writing, Shueisha, Akira Toriyama, and Toyotarou haven't shared any details about the next arc, but we will update this article once we get the latest scoop about the next Dragon Ball Super manga chapter.
