Spoilers from the draft pages…

Whilst most of the main spoilers for Dragon Ball Super 78 haven’t yet been circulated online, the opening storyboard for the upcoming chapter has been shared by the official website.

Giving fans a brief preview of the upcoming chapter, the Dragon Ball Super blog post opens with a brief introduction to where we are currently at in the story.

“Chapter 77 saw the mysteries surrounding the horrific attack on Planet Cereal 40 years ago finally revealed, and it turns out that it was none other than Goku’s father, Bardock, who had saved a young Granolah. A more devastating revelation, though, was that it was actually Elec, the leader of the shadowy Heeters organization and the one who has been pulling the strings behind Granolah and Goku & Vegeta’s clash, who had slain Granolah’s mother!!” – Dragon Ball Super 78 Sneak Peak, via website.

Chapter 78 in the series will “see the Heeters play their hand” and if they have “succeeded in unlocking the power of the Dragon Balls, but what will their wish be…?!”

The new Dragon Ball Super movie…

Fans of the iconic series are also looking forward to the release of a new Dragon Ball Super movie, titled ‘Super Hero’.

Original author Akira Toriyama will again be at the helm, but very few details on either the storyline or production have been shared.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is scheduled to release in Japanese theatres in 2022; however, neither a specific date nor international launch window has been shared.

“I really shouldn’t talk too much about the plot yet, but be prepared for some extreme and entertaining bouts, which may feature an unexpected character.” – Akira Toriyama, via Dragon Ball Official.

Toriyama would also clarify that the team will be “charting through some unexplored territory in terms of the visual aesthetics” so prepare for some amazing-looking fight sequences.
