Dragon Ball Super fans, this is not a drill. After a long wait, it finally looks like the ‘Universal Survival’ arc is about to ramp up its action. The new saga may have kicked off in February, but Toei Animation has taken its sweet time setting up the high-stakes tournament. However, thanks to some new episode titles, fans have learned Dragon Ball Super intends to see the Tournament of Power begin in just a few episodes.
Over in Japan, the most recent issue of Newtype Magazine gave fans a heads up about Dragon Ball Super’s schedule. The publication released episode titles 95-97, and they confirm the Tournament of Power is just about to get started. You can check out the new episode titles below:
- The Wickedest! The Evilest! Freeza Runs Wild!!
- The Time Has Come! To the World of Void, Where the Universes' Fates Will Be Decided!!
- Survive! The Curtain Finally Opens on the 'Tournament of Power'!!
Next week, episode 95 will follow up with Freeza as the villain goes up against a gang of assassin who’ve been sent for him. Dragon Ball Super’s last episode ended with Freeza transforming into his Golden state, and the villain is ready to shed lots of blood now that his power has been restored for the Omni-King’s tournament.
Once Freeza finishes the assassins, it will be time for Dragon Ball Super to open the Tournament of Power. Episode 96 will see Universe 7 and the rest of the competing multiverse arrive at the event’s arena. Then, after any opening ceremonies get finished, Dragon Ball Super will head into the tournament with episodes 97 and 98. So far, no title has been attached to the anime’s latter episode, but Newtype does say episode 98 will air on July 9th.
The synopsis of Dragon Ball Super's current saga can be read here:
"According to an invitation that Goku gets, Zen-Oh (Omni King) is starting a martial arts tournament between all the universes called "Chikara no Taikai" (Tournament of Power). But it is the beginning of universal destruction. Something awaits the winners and losers of this tournament. What will become of this fierce team battle between each universe's elite warriors?"
