Dragon Ball Super‘s manga is currently in the middle of one of its more exciting arcs in years, as the “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” arc has introduced a powerful new villain in the form of Planet-Eater Moro as well as brought back some key elements of Dragon Ball Z‘s “Namek Saga.” More than that, though, Moro’s frighteningly powerful sorcery has resulted in Goku and Vegeta’s Super Saiyan abilities being shut down and then stolen by Moro!
This detail about Moro’s powers allowing him to shut down all of Goku and Vegeta’s current power boosters has set the stage for the “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” arc to be a major Dragon Ball game-changer by the time it finishes. Now, we’re starting to get hints that’s indeed the case, as the first tease about the arc to follow “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” is already getting fans imaginations going!
Right now, given the wide landscape that the Dragon Ball franchise is occupying, the words “super fanservicy” could mean just about anything. The manga is setting the stage for a major shift in the Saiyan power structure; the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie has already provided a pathway to a new Saiyan transformation; and the Dragon Ball Heroes promo anime has been been nothing *but* fan service moments.
Out of all of that, if we had to guess: “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” could end with Goku and Vegeta having to follow the past by sacrificing their Super Saiyan Godly ki to seal away the villain’s magic. That could lead to the next arc bringing Broly back into the main series, as Broly has already unlocked the Super Saiyan 4 method of transformation and power. That would indeed be a “super fanservicy” occurrence, as fans have been waiting for SSJ4 to be made canon for years now.
What are you hoping to see?
