The much-awaited leaks of Dragon Ball Super Chapter 100 and… It was a disappointment. Fans were expecting a new arc to kick off since the manga had reached an important milestone.
In a recent video on the Bandai Spirits YouTube channel, manga editor Victory Uchida said that something unbelievable will happen in chapter 100, along with “crazy developments”. This made fans even more hyped for the chapter.
But according to the leaks from @DbsHype on Twitter, Dragon Ball Super chapter 100 merely marked the ending of the Super Hero arc, with no mention or even a tease for a new arc.
Unfortunately so, Super Hero Arc’s ending takes all of the chapter, no new story content or even a tease for next arc ☠️, so we’ll have to wait another month to see where manga will head now

Despite their disappointment, fans at least got to savor Gohan Beast in all his glory, with Toyotaro‘s beautifully drawn colored panels of the Saiyan unleashing his Special Beam Cannon to kill off Cell Max.

Fans on Twitter showered their praise on the manga author/illustrator, with some saying it was the only silver lining amongst the dark clouds of disappointment.
With a new arc coming up in the new year, fans are looking forward to Toyotaro’s evolved art quality in 2024!
About Dragon Ball:
Dragon Ball is a manga series by Akira Toriyama. It first began its serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1984.
The manga was later adapted into a multitude of animated series, movies, and games.
The franchise consists of five different anime series, about 21 animated movies, and around 10 games spanning various platforms, from Famicon to Playstation and Xbox.
Synopsis of the Dragon Ball anime:
The story of Dragon Ball follows the life of Son Goku, a monkey-tailed boy loosely based on the traditional Chinese folk tale Journey to the West, from his life and adventures as a child all the way up to being a grandfather.
During his life, he fights many battles and eventually becomes (arguably) the strongest martial artist in the universe. He is not without help, however: the comic boasts a large ensemble cast of martial artist heroes and villains which provide the conflict that drives the story.
