Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 Spoilers: Will Black Frieza be the main villain?
Shueisha, series creator Akira Toriyama, and artist Toyotarou are still keeping details of the upcoming arc under wraps, but based on what happened in the final chapter of the Granolah the Survivor Saga, it's likely that Frieza will be involved in the story.
It's still unclear if Frieza will be the main antagonist of the next Dragon Ball Super arc, but expect Goku and Vegeta to train harder to increase their chances of defeating the powerful villain's new transformation known as Black Frieza. As of Sept. 17, the official Dragon Ball website hasn't provided any details about the next Dragon Ball Super arc.
We could see other familiar characters like Broly and Jiren return but they will likely not become the villains of the next arc of Dragon Ball Super. Of course, fans want to see if Son Gohan's new "Beast Gohan" transformation from Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will debut in the manga series, and it would be spectacular to see Beast Gohan and Black Frieza fight.
Epicstream will update you with the latest information once Shueisha reveals plot details for the next arc, so stay tuned.
When will Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 be released?
The conclusion of Dragon Ball Super Chapter 87 revealed that the manga series will take an indefinite hiatus before the next arc begins. Shueisha hasn't announced an official release date for Chapter 88 yet, but don't expect a new chapter to arrive in September 2022.
Dragon Ball Super Chapter 88 is expected to release on October 20, 2022. This is based on monthly release dates of the previous manga chapters. As of Oct. 6, Shueisha hasn't officially confirmed an official release date, but expect the new arc to begin within a few months.
Over on Twitter, @DBSChronicles shared an English translation of the Dragon Ball Super INTERVAL SPECIAL feature article from V Jump's November issue, released on Sept. 20.
Shueisha is expected to share more details about the next Dragon Ball Super arc at Jump Festa this December. The series will also have a special exhibition at New York Comic Con (Oct. 6 to 9), so it's possible that Shueisha will reveal more details about the next arc during that event.
