'Dragon Ball Super' Manga Reveals Touching Android 17 Moment

Android 17 has made a huge impression on fans ever since he entered into the Tournament of Power on Dragon Ball Super, but one moment has been expanded in the manga run for the series and had made fans love Android 17 all over again.

When Goku approached Android 17 about joining Universe 7's team for the Tournament, fans heard about 17's motivation to lead a nice family life. But in the manga, fans were treated to an extra bit of motivation.

As Goku attempts to recruit Android 17, 17 eventually agrees because he says he owes Krillin a huge debt. Why? Because when Krillin wished to remove the bomb from Android 18's chest, he wished to remove Android 17's as well.

The Tournament of Power has brought out a new side of Android 17. A more human character than the one seen in Dragon Ball Z, the now more mature 17 cares for his family and outwardly shows his care for his sister.

He recently also had his best episode in the series yet as he was the only one to parse out Universe 3's Aniraza's weakness and jumped through a large energy blast before punching the giant in the face. But this was unfortunately driven by the fact that Android 18 had been eliminated in the tournament after saving her brother from falling.

Dragon Ball Super's "Universal Survival" arc is part of the recent simulcast agreement that sites like Crunchyroll and Funimation have scored. DragonBall Super airs on Crunchyroll Saturday evenings at 7:15 p.m. CST. Adult Swim airs the English dub during its Toonami block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m, and is now available to stream on FunimationNOW and Amazon Video.

If you want to catch up with the English dub, the first 39 episodes of Dragon Ball Super are now available to stream on FunimationNOW, Crunchyroll's VRV service, and available to purchase on Amazon Video. The 39 episodes span the full range of what has aired in the North America and covers the "Battle of Gods" arc, "Revival of F" arc, and the most recently ended "Universe 6" arc.


There is also currently a new Dragon Ball film in the works for 2018. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and potentially the story of the very first Super Saiyan God.Not only does it aim to be the best film in the series, original creator Akira Toriyama will be contributing to the film's script and new character designs.
