In the coming weeks, fans of Dragon Ball Super can expect to see plenty of thrilling fights. The anime recently kicked off a new arc known as the 'Universal Survival' saga, and the storyline is off to a hot start. Last week, fans saw Goku throw his universe under the bus after he petitioned the Omni-Kings to hold the dangerous martial arts events. With all of the universes at stake, episode 79 of Dragon Ball Super will usher in the anime's first match-up between Universe 7 and 9, and it will feature some very familiar faces.
Over in Weekly Shonen Jump, the publication gifted fans with a synopsis of the episode, and it will see fighters like Goku, Gohan, and Majin Buu fight new foes.
You can check out the full translation from Todd Blankenship below:
