The Dragon Ball Super episode 53 is still days away from hitting the web but based on the teaser released, it seems like it is going to be an action-packed installment as Goku is about to go up against the new Kai, Zamasu, from Universe 10.
It can be recalled that back in the 52nd episode, Goku, Beerus and Whis went to Universe 10 to follow the power level they felt from Black Goku. The trio landed on a strange-looking planet where they met the Kaioshin, Zamasu.
Although his past is still unknown, fans are already speculating that based on his appearance, Zamasu is somehow related to the Supreme Kai from Universe 7, a comrade of Goku. Meanwhile, Goku and his companion would then realize that Zamasu?s ki is similar to Black, which is the exact reason why he would challenge the new character to a duel to verify the ki they felt.
Zamasu appears to be a formidable foe for Goku. There are predictions that the two will eventually team up to go against Black Goku. According to speculations, there is a possibility that Zamasu is also mad at Black for some reason, which will lead him to Goku?s side.
Meanwhile, another thing that fans should expect in the Dragon Ball Super episode 53 is the quest of Gohan to become stronger. Back in the previous installment, Future Trunks was surprised to see the Present Gohan completely different from the one he knew in the future. The one in the present time is weaker and domesticated compared to the hardcore trainer in the future.
As a result, there are speculations that the Future Trunks Arc signifies the start of Gohan training harder to become strong once more just like the time when he faced and defeated Cell alone. If that would be the case, it would open the possibility that Gohan is the one to defeat Black Goku.
How about you? Do you think Zamasu is indeed a bad guy? Or will he join Goku, Whis and Beerus in going after Black Goku? Do you think Gohan will become a force again in the series? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
The Dragon Ball Super episode 53 titled ?Reveal Black?s True Identity! Now, to the Kaioshin Realm of Universe 10? is not going to air this Sunday, July 24, instead it will be shown on July 31.
