There are some spoilers in our Dragon Ball Super Episode 113 Review – Discussion
So the latest episode of Dragon Ball Super just aired and our warriors from Universe 7 continue to fight for their survival in the tournament of power.
Episode 113 picks up exactly where 112 left us last week. Caulifla and Goku have encountered each other on the field of battle and Caulifla has challenged Goku to fight her. In this episode we learn that Caulifla wants to learn how to transform into super saiyan 3 and wants to know it’s power. Goku unfortunately is yet to recover his stamina and must fight this in his base form.
Much of this episode is a fighthing one, it’s basically 20 minutes of solid action of a fight beteen Goku and Caulifla. At one point it is mentioned that this is a fight between two super saiyan 2 warriors as the two both take that form. The fight itself is actually quite impressive and we see Caulifla growing in power throughout its duration.
What is probably most important out of this episode are the comments from Champa, Whis, Beerus and rest in the stand. We hear Whis say that Caulifla is able to learn things quickly in the fight with Goku as it is causing her to unlock her hidden potential, which was always there but is only now becoming something awakened, this is why she has transformed so quick and possibly this might be the case for others in Universe 6. I consider Caulifla’s hidden strength a little similar to how Gohan was in DBZ. There’s just a lot of potential for this character to grow and I think Caulifla will be a big part of the show for some time.
The other major point in this episode was Goku’s brief Super Saiyan 3 transofrmation. Fans will know that this form does drain stamina a lot so he doesn’t maintain it long. But the animation here for this moment was spectacular and as a form that hasn’t been used much in this series, I was glad to see it in here again.
Towards the end of the episode we see Kale get called in by Goku to fight alongside Caulifa. Goku is somehow feeding off this fight and is slowly getting his stength back.
It is in the preview for next week at the end of this episode that got me most excited. We briefly see a new fighter emerge and it looks to be a fused Caulifla and Kale as we see the ring in the ear. I’m excited to see how strong they’ll be fused like that. I wonder how Goku will deal with something like that while also maintaining his stamina.
Overall this was a good episode. I love the Caulifla character in the show and I do enjoy her intereactions with Goku. I think there’s a lot more they can do with both these characters going forward, there’s a lot of potential for both of them.
