Dragon Ball Super is teasing a deeper look into Bardock’s past with an early look at the manga’s next chapter! The Granolah the Survivor arc has reached its climax with its latest chapters as Goku is left to fight against Gas all alone as he tries to figure out a path to victory somehow. There are many mysteries as to what will happen in the current fight, but there are many more as to what happened with Gas’ fight with another notable figure in the past. After first being introduced to the arc in previous chapters, there are still many gaps in Bardock’s role in Granolah and Gas’ past.
Bardock and Gas are touted to have fought in the past following Bardock’s saving of Granolah during Cereal’s destruction, but it has yet to be revealed just how Bardock was able to clench the victory here. At the same time, Gas has been having flashbacks to this fight as he’s seemingly been affected by it ever since. It seems like we’ll finally get more of this fight between the two way back when as the next chapter of the series is titled “Bardock vs. Gas” and that hopefully means we’ll get to see their fight actually play out in full.
The roughs are out for DBS ch.82, “Bardock vs Gas”. Goku teleports all over the place as he battles Gas, locking in familiar ki such as the Galactic Patrol mooks and the U6 tournament personnel. Gas is not amused. https://t.co/g7EGeI2fT2 pic.twitter.com/ZPozHIVh2Z
There have been many questions raised about the nature of Bardock’s power from the past as it was revealed that Gas had enough power to rival even Frieza. That was before he was wished to be the strongest in the universe, and before we got to see the full extent of his awakened power unleashed in the previous chapters. If he had even a bit of this power in the fight against Bardock, it not only makes one question how Bardock was able to beat Gas, but beat him to the extent that Gas still carries the weight of that loss in a significant way to the present day.
This could be a reveal of a hidden power, or some kind of trick that could help Goku in his current fight with Gas. Either way, the title alone makes Chapter 82 of Dragon Ball Super all the more intriguing. But what do you think? What are you hoping to see in the next chapter? What do you want to see from the fight between Bardock and Gas? Are you hoping it shows an even deeper part of Bardock’s past? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
