>the author of the manga series explained years ago the manga never adapted the anime series, just the outline Toriyama does. Said author has been promoted to coproducer of the series, and is still doing his manga with Toriyama's help (corrections, drawnings, etc). On top that, the manga series has been marketed for months as the canonical continuation of the original canon DB manga (while similar statements about the anime series only connect it with the non canon DB/Z animes, which makes sense considering said series continued non canon plots from the DB/Z animes, such as Ginyu stealing Bulma's body in Planet Namek), this before and after the new successful 'Dragon Ball Super: Broly' movie was released, movie that only credits the DBS manga series as source, similar to how the only DBS series promoted in the last Jump Festa was the manga one, as the anime series stopped telling its own version of Toriyama's stories about a year ago and the company that used to produce it is busy with a promotional anime for a gacha videogame, Super Dragon Ball Heroes. The last hope for the fans of the anime is that this year of no content is a "small" hiatus, which wouldn't change any of the previously mentioned facts but at least would mean more content.
Can an anime fan tell me what's his official source for the manga being promotional and not canon?
