Shueisha and Viz Media have been releasing chapter of Dragon Ball Super manga series by Akira Toriyama and Toyotarou once a month, and after Chapter 73 was released in June 2021, fans are excited to find out how the next chapter will continue the Granolah the Survivor saga.
Granolah the Survivor saga is a revenge-driven story about Granolah, the lone survivor of the Cerealian race who has a mission to kill Frieza to avenge the extermination of his race. In Chapter 73, we saw Goku and Granolah's intense fight, but in the upcoming chapter, it's Vegeta's turn to show the lone Cerealian survivor that the Saiyans have what it takes to take down the Strongest Warrior in the Universe

Update: Dragon Ball Super Chapter 74 has already been released. You can check out the detailed recap of the Vegeta vs. Granolah fight here.
After Goku is taken down thanks to Granolah's secret technique, Vegeta steps in to fight the Cerealian warrior. The Saiyan Prince brings out his savage side and tells Granolah that the "tribe that's about to go exctinct are the Cerealians".
Earlier this week, Shueisha released the first preview for Dragon Ball Super Chapter 74, which showed a sketch from a page showing the Vegeta vs. Granolah fight. The Saiyan Prince makes it clear that Freeza is a common enemy of the Saiyans and Granolah, but the lone Cerealian survivor doesn't seem to be phased by what Vegeta said.

The official Dragon Ball website shared another sneak peek of Dragon Ball Super Chapter 74, giving us an early look at the first few pages showcasing the Vegeta vs. Granolah fight. Vegeta and Granolah appears to have a short conversation perhaps about the past of the Saiyans, Cerealians, and Freeza, before getting into an explosive fight.
You can check out the preview through the official announcement from the official Twitter page below:
Based on the previews revealed so far, Vegeta tries to talk some sense into Granolah in his signature ruthless way, and he threatens him by saying that his clone body tricks won't work like they did on Goku.
Meanwhile, the Sugarians of Planet Cereal are trying to stay distant before another explosive fight jumps off. At the time of this writing, we still don't know how this chapter will conclude.
Chapter 74 is another action-packed chapter showcasing both Vegeta and Granolah's powers. According to a leaker from Reddit, the entire Chapter 74 wil show Vegeta and Granolah fighting in various environments in planet Cereal, around the river, waterfall, and lake. Meanwhile, Goku recovers consciousness and sees Vegeta and Granolah fighting. For the most part of the fight, Granolah has the upper-hand as he is able to land powerful blows to Vegeta's body, even breaking the Saiyan Prince's armor, causing him to bleed from his mouth.
However, in the final pages of the chapter, Vegeta transforms into a form resembling Goku's Super Saiyan 3 from Dragon Ball Z - without eyebrows, and there are columns of flames surrounding him. "The God of Destruction taught me this," according to an unoffiical English translation. Recent leaks on social media have revealed what Vegeta's new form will look like.
According to an English translation by DBSChronicles, right before Vegeta unleashes his new form, he tells Granolah, "The blood of the Saiyan warrior race boils in my veins", and Granolah looks terrified at the sight of Vegeta's transformation.
Some fans have already shared their own illustration of Vegeta's "God of Destruction" form. Check out this art by LeftStyleArts:
There's no official name for Vegeta's new form yet, but many are calling it "God of Destruction" form.
Knowing how the shonen series prolong fights, it's unlikely that we will see Granolah taken down, but if Vegeta attempts to finish him off, it's likely that Goku will interfere to save Granolah after realizing that he's not actually evil. It would also be interesting to see Freeza show up in this arc but I doubt it will happen anytime soon.
