‘Dragon Ball Super’ Episode 65 Preview Shows One-Sided Battle, Rumored Episode 66, 67, 68 Leaks False?

Dragon Ball Super Episode 65 promises a lot of action, and if the episode’s preview is any indication, this is exactly what fans of the long-running anime series will get. After a grand clash of power in Episode 64, the villains of the current arc, Zamasu and Black Goku, have finally used their potara earrings to fuse with each other, forming a Super Saiyan White-esque god being that seems to hold overwhelming power. Thus, if classic Dragon Ball tropes are to be considered, a similarly fused warrior will soon emerge from the heroes’ side.

Episode 64 brought back a lot of what fans truly love about the Dragon Ball. There was a lot of humor, a lot of intense power-ups, and most of all, a lot of classic inhuman beat-downs. Future Trunks had his moment, temporarily sealing away Zamasu, while Son Goku and Vegeta continue their respective battles. By the end of the episode, the villains opted to fuse, creating a godlike being that is most likely the most powerful enemy the Z fighters have yet to face.

The merged form of Zamasu and Black Goku, whose name still remains a mystery for now, will undoubtedly hold immense power. In the brief preview from Episode 65, titled “Final Retribution?! The Supreme God’s Ultimate POWER,” the godlike fused villain was depicted laying waste on both the land and the Z fighters seemingly without any problem. With this in mind, numerous fans are speculating that the only way the Z fighters can beat the villain would be to conduct a fusion themselves.

Rumors of the return of a fused fighter, possibly Vegito, have been emerging frequently among Dragon Ball fans in recent weeks. Vegito was last seen in the final arcs of the much-loved Dragon Ball Z series, and the character’s brief appearance, together with its overwhelming power and strength, have made it iconic among DB fans. Thus, it is not surprising that Dragon Ball fans are speculating that the powerful fighter would make an appearance in DBS once more.

While the next few episodes of Dragon Ball Super would undoubtedly prove to be the most intense in the entire series to date, the actual progression of the plot for the next few weeks is still pretty much open for speculation. This, unfortunately, has caused a number of rumors to start about the alleged contents of Episode 66, 67 and 68.

These rumors state that Episode 66, allegedly titled “One Last, Great Comeback! Here’s Vegito!” would feature the return of the popular fused Z fighter. Unfortunately for the heroes, however, rumors state that the fused fighter would not be able to match up against Zamasu and Black Goku. This would, in turn, result in the return of the Omni-King, who would personally intervene and defeat the villains once and for all.

In a number of ways, these rumored events do make sense. If any, the return of Vegito is something that has been speculated by fans for a very long time. Summoning the Omni-King to address the Zamasu-Black Goku threat has also been a point that numerous Dragon Ball fans have speculated, especially since Son Goku quite literally has a direct line to the God of the Universe. As much as these speculations are interesting, however, it might be a bit too early to consider these rumored leaks as legitimate.

According to the ever-reliable GojiitaAF, currently one of the most reputed sources for Dragon Ball leaks, no information has been released about the titles of the next month’s episodes. So far, the last update on GojiitaAF’s official Facebook page simply shows a post about Episode 65’s preview.

One thing that is interesting, however, is the fact that GojiitaAF has also stated in a post last October 30 that the leaks for Episode 65 to 68 would be revealed sometime between November 5 to 8. These leaks usually contain the official titles of the episodes, together with a brief summary of the events that the episode would hold.

For now, it is safe to say that the events of the next few weeks are still pretty much open for speculation, as there has been no official release in NewType or any other reputable Japanese anime magazines. Leaks from Japanese TV guides, which usually print out the titles of anime episodes for the coming month, remain absent for November.

Despite the lack of leaks, however, one thing is sure. Events are escalating fast in Dragon Ball Super, and the current Future Trunks arc is quickly shaping up to be one of, if not the, most engaging and most high-stakes Dragon Ball stories in decades. If any, Dragon Ball Super Episode 65 would surely be yet another high point in the already stellar anime series.
