For those of you eager to see Dragon Ball Super get on with its current arc, then your wish will soon be granted. After a lengthy recruitment period, Goku has finally finished rounding up warriors to defend Universe 7 in the Tournament of Power. The Omni-Kings are eager to get the contest underway, leaving Goku to train briefly with Gohan before his full squad must assemble. Legends like Piccolo and Master Roshi will populate just part of Goku’s team, but fans have now learned one of the team members will ultimately be a no-show. And, unsurprisingly, fans are not feeling the fighter’s absence.
Recently, Animmedia published a new set of episode synopses for Dragon Ball Super. It was there that a description of episode 92 was found, and the upcoming release will see Majin Buu removed from the Tournament of Power!
Why, you might be asking? Well, it comes down the the alien’s need for sleep.
You can read the synopsis of “Emergency! We Don’t Have All 10 Members!!” below:
“The tournament member Majin Buu ends up unable to participate. It turns out he's fallen asleep and definitely won't wake up again for about two months. Goku rushes to Buu.”
For those of you wondering who will take over Buu’s place, there is already an answer out there for fans. The synopsis for episode 93 confirms Goku will attempt to recruit Freeza for the team. After realizing Buu cannot be woken up, Goku goes against everyone’s wishes by asking Freeza to join the squad. He goes off to ask Fortuneteller Baba to resurrect the villain from Hell for just 24 hours.
So, yeah - what could possible go wrong with that plan?
