The 'Universal Survival' arc is underway on Dragon Ball Super, and the long-winding story has only just started. Earlier this month, fans watched as Goku spurred the Omni-Kings to prepare a multiverse martial arts tournament, and the carefree hero discovered the request came with a hefty price. All the universes are mandated to participate in the affair, but each losing team with see their homes obliterated. This week, the saga will continue with Mr. Buu fighting a Universe 9 warrior, but Gohan is set to follow after the pink alien's battle. Now, fans have finally learned a bit more about the half-Saiyan's fight thanks to Weekly Shonen Jump.
In the recent issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, fans were treated to a synopsis for episode 80 of Dragon Ball Super. John Blankenship took the time to translate the description for English-speaking fans, and you can read it below. So, of course, spoilers!
"Gohan is blinded! His battle against the Venomous Lavenda begins!!
Universe 7 is pumped after their victory in the first round! Moving on to the second round, Gohan is up against the Universe 9 warrior Lavenda. Blinded by Lavenda's poison, Gohan cannot read Lavenda's ki and seems to be in for a tough fight!!
