Dragon Ball Super episode 120 aired today and it was a better one than the previous episode. You know how this goes, if you haven’t seen the episode and you don’t want to get spoiled, do not read beyond this first paragraph. So let.s begin.
The episode centers around the fight between Universe 7 and 3. It starts off tame, with the two Zenos noting that since more and more fighters are dropping out, the Tournament of Power is almost over. However, good old Grand Priest is there to tell them that, since we are in the final stages, the fights should in fact get better.
We then cut to the Universe 3 Supreme Kai and God of Destruction, who give the green light to their fighters to get serious. And of course, instead of going after Universe 11, they go after Universe 7, because none of these idiots seem to realize what happens when you do that. Ugh, anyhow, the robots of Universe 3 actually seem to be stronger than most of us thought and actually give Universe 7 a run for their money.
Viara is the first fighter of that Universe to get eliminated in this round and it’s all up to Panchia, Koitsukai and Bollarator, led by Paparoni to end the fight. The first 3 merge into an even bigger robot called Koichiarator (these names are so annoying).
Anyhow, this robot actually proves to be very strong and Gohan, who decided he actually wants to be useful and fight someone alone without Piccolo, steps in in order to allow Goku and Vegeta to recover their stamina. However, Koichiarator is more than capable of holding his own and Goku and Vegeta step in.
This proves to serve as decoy move to allow Gohan to gather enough energy, which he does, and fires a very strong blast towards Koichiarator which seems to eliminate him…up until we see Paparoni appear with what seems to be Koichiarator in the background, announcing his ultimate move, which judging by the preview, seems to be merging with Koichiarator himself.
All in all a better episode than the previous one, though not up to 118 levels of good. I was a bit surprised that Universe 3 lasted more than one episode in the fight with Universe 7, but I’m guessing they’re holding the 7-11 fight for next year. I actually liked the gimmick of Universe 3, much more than Universe 4 or others (you know, Universe 2). With 10 minutes to go, it seems it’s going to become intense. Either that or we get another rushed ending like the Future Trunks saga.
