Dragon Ball Super Episode 51-53 Review
So in episode 50 of dragon ball super our Goku fought Goku Black, The time portal that opened when trunks traveled back in time was beginning to close and when it closed it sucked Black Goku back and so Black Goku once again ended up in future but before going he destroyed the time machine through which trunks came to past. This made everyone think that now they can’t do anything. However Bulma remembers that when last time trunks came they found another time machine through which cell came and so she finds that and then gets to the job of repairing it.
Beerus and Whis on the other hand had a pretty good idea about Black’s identity and they informed everyone that there is one Kai in Universe 10 who has the same Ki as Black, However they are not sure that he is the right person. Vegeta goes to train alone while Goku goes to Universe 10 with Beerus and Whis. Trunks meets “Kid Mai” and remembers that its the same Mai and tells her how he met Mai in future and what happened to her.
Trunks then decides to visits Gohan since Gohan was his master. Piccolo told him that Gohan left the world of martial arts and now is a scholar he was not surprised because he knew that was Gohan’s dream. Although when he met Gohan he was pretty surprised by how Gohan looks as an adult compared to his time.
And i think that difference had a huge impact on him, although trunks who was fighting with black the whole time in his timeline thinks that if Black didn’t appeared he would have lived peaceful life with Bulma and Mai. Which helps him to remind him one thing that he was forgotten a long time ago because of fighting with Black and that was his goal – “For what he was fighting? and for who he was fighting?”
Meeting with Gohan got trunks motivated and cheered up. Now coming to the latest episode of Dragon Ball Super i.e Dragon Ball Super Episode 53, regarding that i said earlier that the prediction we did in the last review is on the right track and this new episode proved it. In the last review i mentioned that Goku Black is actually an evil version of Kaioshin who hates humans. Because he mentioned to trunks that i have came to correct the mistakes made by god. So basically Black is like dragon ball version of Kira from death note who think he is doing right but its actually wrong.
Now that Beerus, Whis and Goku went to Universe 10 to meet that Kaioshin who has the same Ki as Black is actually the same person as Black Goku although the episode stated that he is little different from Black, but i am 100% sure that Zamasu is Black all we have to wait for how Black Goku (Zamasu) from trunks timeline got the body of Goku?We will find out in the future episodes of Dragon ball super. But lets now compare the personality of Black and Zamasu.
Zamasu is the well mannered guy with royal and elite dignity but unlike any other Kaioshin he has cold attitude towards humans in short he don’t like humans at all. According to him humans are the creatures that destroy nature and are at war every time. They kill each other and are on constant fight with each other, they are selfish and don’t give a damn about world peace.
So he asks his master the Kaioshin he is training under “Are humans really worth protecting?”what i am trying to say is that Zamasu has the same thinking as black and has a really cold heart towards human beings. Although he is not really evil as black but it becomes clear that he tries to hold his emotions because he is still a dignified elite Kaioshin and he is still under training. Also the way he speaks is somewhat similar to how Black speaks, its sort of dignified and royal way of speaking that you only hear from the mouth of people who are born elite.
When Beerus, Whis and Goku arrived they told them some guy with time ring showed up and he was not a Kaioshin and his face just looked like Goku. Zamasu and his master brought the briefcase in which all the time rings are stored, to show them to Beerus to confirm that time ring are not stolen. But since Black was from future, it must have been possible that Zamasu must have stolen the ring. To prove my point all the time rings were kept in brief case in a location that only Zamasu and his master knows. His master is just like the other Kaioshin we know so its impossible for him to steal the ring. Zamasu who hates humans must have killed him in future trunks timeline and stole the ring.
Goku challenges Zamasu to see that he has the same ki as black or not, In that fight Beerus, Whis and Goku all figure out that he has the same ki as black but it was somewhat different. The cold attitude and anger he showed towards Goku the entire episode, was enough to prove that he hates humans (he thinks Goku as human not a saiyan). Beerus and Whis become confirmed that Zamasu is Black but were unable to figure out the difference in the ki of Zamasu and Black. Thanks to that Goku now thinks that Zamasu is not Black.
From here it is just my personal opinion but as i mentioned that – “Although he (Zamasu) is not really evil as black but it becomes clear that he tries to hold his emotions because he is still a dignified elite Kaioshin and he is still under training.” But what will happen when he will unleash all his rage towards humans? i think that because he is controlling his emotions his ki is similar but little different than black and once he no longer needs to do it his ki will completely become like black.
Goku said that “He was pretty strong for a kaioshin, generally he must be on the same level as beerus” and since Toriyama mentioned that Black is the villain that will surpass even Whis, Beerus and Omni king, Goku’s brief description of Zamasu makes it even more possible that Zamasu must be Black. On top of that after sparing with Goku, at the end of the episode he made conclusion that humans are dangerous and he also said that – “Son Goku, I will never forget you!” with an anger on his face. They way he talked to Goku the entire episode also made it clear that he didn’t like him and just thought him as an eyesore.
The final point which proves Zamasu is Black is the similarities between the physique of Goku Black and Zamasu. Goku Black and Zamasu both are slim and has similar physique also the color of the dress and shoes they wear is same and the way they speak is also same.
Anyways in today’s episode we got enough proofs to prove that Zamasu is Goku Black. Now we only have to wait and see how he became Black and how he was able to get Goku’s body.
