Warning: Dragon Ball Super and One Piece spoilers ahead
As reported last week, both One Piece and Dragon Ball Super are getting 1-hour specials in October. In One Piece, Luffy will take on Sanji on October 1.
Then, on October 8, Dragon Ball Super fans Jiren The Gray from Universe 11 will battle our hero Son Goku! It is then Goku will take his power to new heights and reveal his new transformation! The name is unknown, but Goku’s eyes become silver as he is surrounded by both majestic blue AND fiery red aura!
It is worth noting the Dragon Ball and one Piece specials will not be crossovers, instead it seems they will be two episodes from each anime series aired back-to-back. The purpose for this is unclear as the specials air from 9 AM to 10 AM in Japan. That’s the same time One Piece and Dragon Ball Super air in Japan on a normal basis. In other words, there will not be an episode of Dragon Ball Super on the week of the One Piece special and there will not be an episode of One Piece the week of the Dragon Ball Super special. Our guess the reason for the special is these (Luffy vs Sanji and Goku vs Jiren)are major fights in each respective series so they are being highlighted with specials.
