Episode 98 of the “Dragon Ball Super” anime series is promising to be a blast, as chaos looms on the horizon.

According to the official synopsis of the episode titled “All in Vain! The Universe in Despair!” Son Goku’s team will be pitted against the other universes. “As soon as the Tournament of Power begins, Universe 7 is immediately surrounded and put under siege by the rest of the Universes in a massive coordinated attack. Will Universe 7 manage to escape this ambush?” read the synopsis released by the Weekly Shonen Jump and reported by Blasting News.

Furthermore, Son Goku will find himself alone, separated from the rest of his teammates. He will also need to face a grave predicament. The synopsis added that “8 strong warriors from other Universes” will surround the hero in the next episode. However, “Despite the beleaguered situation, the superhero will still find the opportunity to smile confidently.”

Meanwhile, tension against the team of Goku reportedly started from the speculations that they are to blame for the Omni-King Zen-Oh’s threat to destroy all the universes. His allies from Universe 7 include Gohan, Vegeta, Piccolo, Tien Shinhan, Android 18, Krillin, Android 17, Master Roshi, and Frieza. All of them will have to fulfill a tall order of defending themselves from a myriad of opponents.

Moreover, Goku’s biggest ally for the massive battle could very well be Vegeta. This is based on the trailer where Goku said that he and Vegeta “are gonna settle things with Universe 9!”

In other “Dragon Ball” news, Trunk’s addition to “Dragon Ball Fighter Z” beefed up the game’s roster. Jump magazine reportedly confirmed the inclusion of the fan-favorite.

The publication did not give any further details about Trunks’ in-game abilities. However, he will likely come armed with his ever reliable sword.

“Dragon Ball Super” episode 98 airs on July 9. Fans outside of Japan can watch it via online streaming on Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and AnimeLab.
