Dragon Ball Super hung up the television towel when its anime shuddered, but the manga is going strong. Thanks to a little sneak-peek at chapter 60, fans can see what the newest update of Dragon Ball Super will look like, and it will focus on Ultra Instinct. After all, Goku has to show off the fruits of his training, but this altered take on the form isn't what many fans expected to see.

Recently, the official team behind Dragon Ball Super put out a slew of drafts from chapter 60. The piece, which will be released later this month, will follow Goku as the fighter takes on Moro. The baddie is still determined to consume Earth, but Ultra Instinct Sign Goku plans to keep Moro away from his goal.

The drafts, which can be seen below, show Goku in the first tier of Ultra Instinct... but he is far from calm. When the form was first introduced during the Tournament of Power, the mysterious boost was all about serenity. Much like Whis said, Ultra Instinct is a form that can only be reached when your thoughts no longer impact your fighting; You simply dodge and retaliate on pure instinct. This means that Goku had to have a clear mind when powered up, but that doesn't appear to be the case now.

Goku did enough training with the angel Merus to unlock Ultra Instinct Sign at will, but he cannot go any further. This chapter shows Goku raging despite using the Ultra Instinct Sign form. He is shown screaming while powering up his chi, leaving fans a little confused as to why the show of machismo was needed. For many, the point of Ultra Instinct counters to such behavior, so we are left to wonder how this new chapter will explain Goku's surprising actions. It could be that rage is the thing which empties the hero's mind, and if that is the case, then there's a big storm coming for Moro. Yikes!
