Welcome, Dragon Ball fans!!
I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
Universe 6 is back!!
What an entertaining episode!!
Dragon Ball Heroes episode 7 introduced us to the “Universal Conflict Arc.” We find ourselves investigating the events of what happened between Goku and Cumber’s fight in episode 6. Now, a brand-new story begins and new enemies emerge.
Today, I will breakdown episode 7 of Dragon Ball Heroes and give my analysis, as we enter the first episode of the new year.
So without further ado, let’s dive right in!
In the beginning of this episode, we see Vegeta, Future Trunks, Mai, and both versions of Xeno Goku and Vegeta arrived on Beerus’s planet.
Whis is among them.
Once Xeno Goku and Vegeta left, one of the Supreme Kais of Universe 6 came toward them with terrible news. He starts begging Vegeta and Future Trunks for his help.
Why would Universe 6 Supreme Kai want Vegeta and Trunks’s help?
Because something terrible is going on in Universe 6 that allowed the Supreme Kai to come asking for help.
As we go back to the future timeline, which is very different in comparison to the anime, we see Kale, Caulifla, Cabba, and Hit battle against a powerful twin duo.
Now, these two twins are both “Neo Machines." The female on the left is Kamin. The male on the right is Oren.
It was awesome seeing Caulifla, Kale, and Hit work together in order to fight the “Neo Machine” twins.
Keep in mind, this is after the “Tournament of Power.”
As we transition into this episode, we see both Caulifla and Kale team up to fight off Oren. Meanwhile, Hit was preoccupied and squared off against Kamin. Now, Kamin is so powerful, she’s able to size up to Hit by pushing him back. As the twins begin to rotate, Oren ends up fighting Hit. While Kamin swaps off to fight off both Kale and Caulifla.
The "Neo Machine" twins's facial appearance do resembles Baby in Dragon Ball GT. It's interesting to see how Dragon Ball Heroes corporates them in this episode. One of Kamin’s first targets was Kale, who knocked her out with one simple kick to the face.
For some reason, Hit is having a hard time handling Oren in this fight. He is unable to execute his “Time Skip,” which ends up being a complete failure. After Hit fails to execute his “Time Skip,” Oren manages to give him a headlock to slow him down.
I thought that this fight was very enjoyable.
Personally, I enjoyed seeing Hit getting the upper hand against Oren, while Caulifla fought Kamin.
I really enjoyed this episode!!
It allowed us to see what Universe 6 was capable of.
As Hit gets the upper hand over Oren, we see Kamin still fighting off both Caulifla and Kale. As Kale attempts to get up, Caulifla finally got the upper hand over Kamin. These two “Neo Machine” twins reminds me so much of both Android 17 and 18, which is mainly due to their chemistry, characteristics, and style.
As the Neo Machines rose up in the air, they don’t seemed to be too affected by what Caulifla, Kale, Hit, and Cabba did to them. Instantly, the Neo Machine twins managed to restore their health, which I thought was very cool.
With the Neo Machine twins fully healed up, this can be a serious problem for our heroes. It’s almost as if all the damage the twins took was completely gone. Furthermore, with their bodies having to be so unique, the twins healed up rather quickly.
As Kamin approached Caulifla, she uses this barrier explosion called “Crash Break” to push her back. As we see Oren approached Hit, he in turn used the same barrier explosion, but with a different name. The name of this move is called “Smash Break.” I thought the energy barrier blast was a nice touch.
These twins unleashed their fury on the Universe 6 warriors.
As the two Neo Machines were going to finish off the Universe 6 fighters, both Vegeta and Trunks arrived at the last second to save them.
Keep in mind.
This is the first time that Cabba, Kale, Caulifla, and Hit ever met Trunks. As the Neo Machine twins looked on, they don’t seem to be disgruntled or nervous at all. As Vegeta steps in, he instantly transformed into a Super Saiyan. Also, Trunks follow suit by pulling out his sword and transformed into a Super Saiyan as well.
This was a really cool moment to see father and son preparing to go up against a machine duo.
In a far away place, we see an unknown enemy who seems to be a leader. He looked on a cube as merged Zamasu walks over to speak with the individual about their evil plans. Their plan is to destroy all mortals who dare to challenge them. Furthermore, both Zamasu and this mysterious villain are planning to defeat the Omni-King.
Good luck with that!
I think these two goons are sending the Neo Machines to do their dirty work.
That is my best guess.
This version of Zamasu is known as “Punished Zamasu,” which I think is a really cool concept.
Back in the future timeline, it looks like both Trunks and Vegeta have the upper hand in this fight, for now. I think this scenario is good to have, especially after seeing what Vegeta and Trunks were capable of against Zamasu in Dragon Ball Super.
However, the Neo Machines are somewhat different. I love seeing them fight against our favorite heroes. The duration of this episode was a good length.
Overall, this episode was very enjoyable.
As of right now, there is no word of where Capsule Corp Goku is located. We don’t know what happened to Cumber. Right now, he is under the possession of Punished Zamasu. So given his status, Cumber is definitely alive. Hopefully he shows up sometime down the line.
We do know that Kelfa will make her appearance during this arc.
With the Neo Machines having the ability to heal themselves instantly, is that going to be a big problem against our heroes in the future?
Personally, I’m kind of glad that Goku was not involved in this episode. The reason why is because it would’ve been a typical battle of Goku fighting off the Neo Machine twins on his own.
I was so thrilled to see Hit being a huge factor in this episode. At some point, both Kale and Caulifla will fuse to fight off the Neo Machines and Zamasu very soon.
So there you have it, folks!
I hope you guys enjoyed this episode as much as I did.
I can’t wait to see what happens next in episode 8 to see how the storyline develops!!
