New Arc Sees Majin Buu Get Kidnapped in ‘Dragon Ball Super’

Published

Majin Buu

Dragon Ball Super’s manga amazed fans lately when it continued beyond where the anime series had ended (and also the events of Dragon Ball Super: Broly), and begun a brand-new arc.

But this new arc got off as equally surprising of a start as things kick off in full when Majin Buu has kidnapped by the Galactic Patrol.

In the newest chapter of this manga, the Tournament of Power finishes and a brand new arc of the series begins some time after the events of the Universe Survival arc and Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Goku and Vegeta are training like usual, and they get a surprise distress call from Mr. Satan, who states that Majin Buu has been kidnapped. Some strange soldiers are then seen placing a sleeping Buu (who is presumably asleep by the Universe Survival arc) inside a ship.

When Goku and Vegeta arrive, they immediately start fighting the soldiers but strange new technology can stun them, and they are loaded onto the ship as well. After being awakened by Jaco, it is revealed that it is the members of the Galactic Patrol who always wanted to grab Majin Buu. Goku and Vegeta were assumed to help in this situation, and it ends up that the Galactic Patrol needs Majin Buu for a particular purpose… .to get the sleeping Great Kaioshin within him.

A “dastardly criminal” has broken out of one of their prisons, and the Patrol needs the support of this Great Kaioshin to capture him. It is not clear as to why they especially require the Great Kaioshin, but fans are glued into the manga to see exactly how they intend to divide him out of Majin Buu. And more importantly, the question of what could occur if he is separated.

Dragon Ball Super currently airs its English dub on Adult Swim throughout the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 11:00 p.m. It’s also readily available to flow on Funimation and Amazon Video. The Japanese language launch of this series is done, and accessible to flow on FunimationNOW, VRV, and Crunchyroll. The manga has commented which could now be read for free thanks to Viz Media.

‘Dragon Ball Super’ Gives Gohan Massive Super Power Boost

Gohan

Dragon Ball Super is placing the piêcs up to the Tournament of Power, and Gohan the final pieces of the puzzle, which has been training to come back to his previous strength.

Not only did Gohan come back to his Mystic form, but the newest episode saw Gohan get a significant power boost going to the Tournaments of Power as he fought at full power against his dad.

Gohan quickly learned during the Zeno Expo his current lack of training meant he wasn’t prepared for the Tournament of Power. Training with ‘Piccolo’ for the last few hours had brought him back into his Mystic Gohan state, which had been the level of power he had at his most powerful during the Majin Buu saga. But when challenging his father, he received a power boost.

Much like the other recruits to the Universe 7 team, Goku challenges Gohan to check his power going in. And he tries to give Goku a run for his money. Not only was Gohan more powerful, but his intelligent has lead to some impressive fighting strategies which will boost his power in battles more so.

But the more literal power boost comes in just how nice Gohan battles against Goku’s full strength. Though he balances pretty well with Super Saiyan Goku, Gohan goes beyond this (and possibly even further ) to match with Goku’s now godlike strength. Gohan is not defeated until Goku uses Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken, which is an impressive showing to the same character who fought to keep his Super Saiyan form active during the Resurrection F arc.

Dragon Ball Super currently airs its English dub on Adult Swim during the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 11:00 p.m… The Japanese language launch of this series is done, and accessible to stream on FunimationNOW, VRV, and Crunchyroll.

You may catch up with all the English dub fairly easily too. The first 65 episodes of Dragon Ball Super are currently available to stream on FunimationNOW, VRV, also available to buy on Amazon Video too. The 65 episodes span the full range of what’s aired in North America and cover the “Battle of God” arc, “Revival of F” arc, the “Universe 6” arc, also bringing the series up to the climax of this “Future Trunks” arc.

‘Dragon Ball Super’ Reveals Shocking Elimination of Jiren

Published

jiren

Dragon Ball Super’s Tournament of Power happened so differently in the manga than it did from the anime series, and one of the significant differences is the way that Universe 7 finally defeated Jiren.

Though Jiren’s elimination finally leads to the same result and involves the same core characters, it shocked fans by just how unexpectedly and differently it happened.

Goku and Jiren

In the anime series, Jiren had to fight against a team of Goku, Freeza, and Android 17 during the final moments of the Tournament of Power. With Goku and Freeza working together in an unprecedented way, both of them manage to push Jiren out of the arena after a big struggle that almost ended with their defeat altogether.

However, Jiren did not get to struggle so much in the manga. Taking place of that final teamwork between Freeza and Goku is instead a final push from Goku and Vegeta. After Vegeta is defeated, Goku is almost eliminated as well as he and Jiren struggled on the edge of the tournament stage. It is here that Freeza mounts another comeback in the anime and fires a Death Ball in Jiren.

Jiren can grab and knock it away, astonishingly, but this was just a distraction for Freeza, who uses power tackle fully to knock Jiren, Goku, and himself out of the stage, leave Android 17 as the sole winner. Though this happens in the anime, it is a solo push from Freeza that really does Jiren in at the end. Goku can hold him back, and this is something which didn’t happen in the anime’s final battle.

Jiren

In the anime, Jiren mounts a far more remarkable final effort as he easily bats Freeza, Goku, and Android 17 away. It is their determination and trust in one another that eventually wins, and Jiren recognizes that himself. While Jiren ends up feeling the same from the manga as well, his final battle from the anime seemed more bombastic. Though this may be more of restraint from the moderate than anything.

What did you think about Jiren’s new elimination? Let me know your opinion by comments below!

Dragon Ball Super: Broly formally releases in Japan this December, so fans will be able to see more of Super Saiyan Blue Goku in action. Funimation will soon be bringing the movie to theatres in the USA on January 16th. Dragon Ball Super currently airs its English dub on Adult Swim throughout the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m. It’s also readily available to flow on Funimation and Amazon Video.

‘Dragon Ball Super’ Reveals Pesky Tournament of Power Plot Hole

Published

Dragon Ball Super is a lot used to plot holes, but fans understand that the series will circle back to address those gaps every now and again. It seems that the Tournament of Power is becoming such a revision. And readers are delighted to view Android 17 set his self-sacrificial goals directly.

As it turns out, the android isn’t quite as suicidal as fans believed. And the former baddie just schooled Krillin about it.

For those people who are caught up on the Tournament of Power, then they’ll know how it ends. The contest has high stakes as the destiny of the multiverse is dependent on it. Therefore Team 7 is taking it so seriously. Thus, Android 17 chose to detonate himself while battling Jiren to give his comrades an opening. But the Dragon Ball Super manga showed the real strategy Android 17 had in mind the whole time.

Chapter 42 sees Android 17 win the Tournament of Power after it’s revealed that he didn’t explode himself. Having kept hidden, the fighter won the event after Freeza and Goku outed themselves to beat Jiren. Everyone was shocked but fans wondered since the anime revealed this twist Android 17 didn’t get noticed. The response to that falls down to the fighter’s ki… or lack of it.

“Surprising indeed. We could not sense him, therefore we could not have known he yet lived,” that the Grand Priest explains before Tien confirms androids do not have ki. It does not take long for Krillin to ask Android 17 the way he survived the explosion in the first place, and also the hero laid out his plan from the beginning.

“As though I would ever do such a thing. Besides, I lost that function quite a long time ago. You are the person who wished away the bomb installed in me. Remember, Krillin,” Android 17 explains.

After reminding Krillin he has to babysit his kids, Android 17 goes on to live out his Tournament of Power wish by reviving all of the universes that got annihilated. It may have taken some time, but anime fans finally got a definitive explanation as to why Zeno did not notice the Team 7 fighter managed to fly beneath the radar after supposedly dying, and Android 17 did not hold back his explanation when question his so-called suicide assignment.

Are you happy this got cleared up? Let me know your opinion by comments below!

‘Dragon Ball Super: Broly’ Reveals Fantastic ‘Dragon Ball Z’ Broly Fight Callback

Published

Dragon Ball Super

Dragon Ball Super: Broly won’t just bring Broly and Gogeta to the series canon officially, fans have noticed a few other references to Dragon Ball’s franchise beyond past make it into the movie.

A brand new promo for the movie at Japan teases that one big call back, Goku’s final Miracle Blow against Broly might just be making it in the movie as well.

There is a moment toward the end of the newest promo which sees a fully powered Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta dashing forward with a ki infused punch. This really is one of 3 things. It could only be a cool punch, it might be a reference to Goku’s famous Dragon Fist, or it could be the exact same ki infused Miracle Blow Goku uses to defeat Broly in Dragon Ball Z: BrolyThe Legendary Super Saiyan.

Fans would appreciate any of those 3 items, as the battle between Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta and Full Super Power Broly will surely be an excellent adventure for them either way, but it will go the extra mile if this is indeed a Miracle Blow and a mạjor call to Broly’s original appearance in the franchise. Fans also have spotted similar moments calling back to other significant events at the franchise, so this could make a lot of sense.

There’s evidence indicating it could be Dragon Fist as well, as the Miracle Blow has been with the left hand of Goku rather than his right. Fans will surely be delighted to see that the movement once again, which could be fan service icing on the cake in a movie already packed to the brim with a ton of references and callbacks. Even if it’s just a cool punch, it will most likely be in between tons of other fast and cool punches.

Fans will see what this movement is soon enough as Dragon Ball Super: Broly officially releases in Japan not long from now on. Funimation will soon be bringing the movie to theatres in the USA on January 16th. You can read its own synopsis below:

“Here is the story of a new Super Saiyan…Realizing the universes still have a lot more powerful people yet to see, Goku spends his days training to achieve even greater heights. And one day, “Goku and Vegeta” are confronted by a Super Saiyan called ‘Broly‘ who they’ve never faced before. The Super Saiyan was supposed to have been almost completely wiped out from the devastation of ‘Planet Vegeta‘ (formerly known as Planet Plant), so what is this one doing on the Earth? This encounter between both Saiyans who’ve followed absolutely different destinies turns to a stupendous fight, with Freeza (back from Hell) getting caught up in the mix.”

New ‘Dragon Ball Super’ Arc Has Shares First-Look At Its Big Villain

Published

Dragon Ball Super

There are a few days away for Dragon Ball Super from having its first movie go live. The franchise will hit theatres in Japan this December to follow up the Tournament of Power. But, there’s another story coming for Goku, and fans just simply got a first-look at its big villain.

For those unaware, Dragon Ball Super is coming through manga these days. With the blessings of creator Akira Toriyama behind it, the show has only kicked off a brand-new arc that no anime has ever touched before. Of course, this usually means a new villain is going to be brought to canon, and the baddie looks like none other fans have seen.

Well, if you believed Cell was weird, just wait till you meet the series’ recent troublemaker.

Let’s see the image below:

As you can see, the first-look proves that the new villain of Dragon Ball Super is far from human. In fact, the renegade prisoner seems to be some type of ram hybrid covered in blue fur, so this unnamed villain has curly horn protruding from its head, along with his narrowed red eyes look really unfriendly. The villain completes his appearance with a long white beard and flowing cloak, providing him a bulky frame next to notorious baddies such as Kid Buu.

There’s very little information on who this new character is so far, but fans do know he is powerful. The manga lately delved into its new Galactic Patrol Prisoner‘ arc, and it was there Goku learned about the hybrid. It turns out that the villain has escaped custody from the force, prompting the Galactic Patrol to take Mr. Buu in hopes of getting the baddie in control. But it seems just like Goku will force to take on this villain some point soon, leaving fans quite curious about the hybrid power levels.

So, are you excited to find out more about this new villain? Let me know in the comments below!

New Super Saiyan Blue Has Drops in ‘Dragon Ball Super: Broly’

Published

Super Saiyan

Dragon Ball Super: Broly will officially hit Japan this December, and now anticipation for the movie is heating up as fans wait to find out who wins between Goku, Vegeta, and Broly.

Fans are definitely expecting the scope of the battle scenes from the new movie, and also a new picture of Super Saiyan Blue Goku in action teases a bit more of what to expect.

@AnimeAjay notes on Twitter that the picture is probably the work of animator Hiroyuki Itai inside the new art style of the movie. Fans have noticed how pronounce Goku’s nose seems in this new picture, and @AnimeAjay features it to Itai’s propensity to draw bigger noses. The fan split over Goku’s more pronounced nose has caused such a split among fans, that even @AnimeAjay provided a new take on what Goku could look like in the picture with an “adjusted” nose.

Although the nose seems to be drawing attention today, it’s easy to concentrate on such a thing when fans can just pour over one picture. When Goku debuts his Super Saiyan Blue type in the final movie, it will most certainly be in the center of an intense fight with Broly. Fans will have so many other things to maintain their attention, and at such a fast pace, that the nose of Goku might not be just as much of a bother as fans believe it’s here.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly officially debuts in Japan this December, so fans will be able to see more of Super Saiyan Blue Goku in action soon.  On January 16th, “Funimation” will be bringing the movie to theatres in the USA, and fans are only waiting to learn which theatres the movie will launch in. You can read its own synopsis below:
