At long last, it looks like Dragon Ball Super is ready to get its current arc moving. The ‘Universal Survival’ storyline debuted back in February, and Toei Animation is just starting to ramp up its action. With Universe 7 hanging in the balance, Goku has put together a top-tier team of fighters who can represent their home at the Tournament of Power. And, now, it looks like Beerus is getting ready to pull some weight around with his subordinates.
Earlier today, Weekly Shonen Jump released a new episode synopsis for Dragon Ball Super. The summary covers episode 95 which is set to debut on June 25th. You can read the synopsis for “The Time Has Come! To the World of Void, Where the Universes' Fates Will Be Decided!!” below:
“It's almost time for the Tournament of Power! Goku and co. head for the World of Void!! The Tournament of Power is finally about to begin. Goku and co. head to the World of Void, site of the battle stage! Before they battle against the toughest warriors from other universes, Beerus announces his strategy!! What in the world could this strategy be?!
Omni-Kings This Week: relaxing before the opening of the Tournament of Power! The Omni-Kings are spending the remaining time until the tournament taking it easy! As they relax, the gods from the universes with the top four highest levels (the ones exempted from the tournament) assemble before them!!”
Looking at the synopsis, it seems like Beerus has been biding his time while Goku finds fighters to create a battle strategy. As a God of Destruction, Beerus knows how the Omni-Kings think better than anyone on Universe 7, so he may have insight to how the deity may switch up his tournament’s rules.
So far, there is one prevailing fan-theory which suggests Beerus might have a heads up on the event. The story arc has put a major focus on the multiverse’s twin pairs. Universes 6 and 7 are twins, leading some to think the Omni-King may change his rules at the last minute to pair up competitors. If Universe 7 were able to pair its Super Saiyans with Universe 6, the rest of the multiverse would surely struggle to keep its ground. And, if the two universes then had to duke it out after everyone else was eliminated, fans wouldn’t be upset at that either.
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?"
