Dragon Ball Super fans are highly-anticipating the release of the next manga chapter as the Granolah the Survivor arc continues to build up the tension for the big fight between Granolah and Goku and Vegeta. A sneak peek for Chapter 71 was recently shared, and the update reveals that Goku's Ultra Instinct form needs an upgrade.
It turns out that Ultra Instinct is more sophisticated than what the manga previously showed us. The powerful form has varying levels of how Ultra Instinct is used, and the power source isn't the same for all. Right now, Goku is using Ultra Instinct in the most inefficient way, and Whis is training him to do much better.
Whis says if Goku’s heart/mind were stable, his body could move on its own regardless of his form. If Goku can manage UI in his regular state, it’ll take care of his stamina problem. Then he can save the transformed version of UI as a trump card. pic.twitter.com/NLRO0ywvyR— Todd Blankenship (@Herms98) April 14, 2021
According to the Chapter 71 panels shared by Todd Blankenship on Twitter, Whis asks Goku the biggest difference between him and the angels. Goku asks, "A halo?", but Whis says, "No, it's how angels are always in the Ultra Instinct state. Goku shouldn't need to transform to do it." The translations went on to say that Whis tells Goku that if his heart/mind were stable, his body could move on its own regardless of his form, and if Goku can manage Ultra Instinct in his regular state, it'll fix his stamina issue. Then he can save the transformed version of UI as the last resort.
