Dragon Ball Super is seventy-seven episodes old now, which is more than the now “officially denounced” Dragon Ball GT with 64 episodes can boast of. Let us take a look at the preview of Episode 78, and see what it has in store for us.
We find that it will feature the highly anticipated clash of the 12 universes called “Tournament of Power.” Omni-King/ Zen-oh sama has reserved a seat for the first battle and is expected to be ruthless with whoever loses a fight.
Toei Animation is about to start a new arc with “Dragon Ball Super” episode 77 known as the “Universal Survival” saga. A preview for the new arc premiere was recently presented, and it highlights a deeply bored Goku who will persistently request for an inter-universe martial arts tournament.

It turns out that watching the “Tournament of Power” is not the only reason why Zen-oh sama is in attendance. The Gods of every universe will be mortified to learn that the king of the 12 universes has decided to punish whichever God will lose their battles by wiping out their world.
It has also been teased that Goku’s universe is up for the first battle and will have to face Universe 9. Upon learning what Omni-King has in mind as punishment, Goku will try to build an alliance with the best fighters possible.
According to the episode preview, Goku will reach out to Gohan. However, the latter hesitates to go with him to the Tournament of Power. Despite the possibility that Vegeta could skip the event, reports suggest that he will still join Goku in the end and so will Krillin.
In this cover picture, we actually get to see who the 10 fighters would be. Among the usual and obvious choices for the fighters, there are two faces which strike utmost confusion. One of them is Master Roshi – one who is powerful, but is no match for the likes of Goku and Vegeta. The other is Android 17.
Another interesting point to be considered is we see “Killer clown” as one of the fighters in this “Tournament of Power”. And guess what, he is the God of Destruction of another universe.

At last, we come to the most exciting part we see in the promo for the Universe Survival arc and also in the opening music of Episode 77. Female Broly. Fans might remember Broly as the Legendary Super Saiyan from the movies.
Here we find a woman transforming into the pupil-less, green-haired, Legendary Super Saiyan. Only time will tell what more we’ll have to be excited about.
