"Dragon Ball Super" episode 71 is titled "Goku Dies! Assassination Order That Must Be Performed." Apparently, the assassin's target will be none other than Goku. Will the assassin be successful in his mission? If future episodes are to be considered, the answer to this question will become clear.
A Powerful Assassin Will Target Goku
The assassin who will be given the task of killing Goku in "Dragon Ball Super" episode 71 is Hit. An alternate translation of episode 71's title is "Death To Goku! A Hit-Job That Can't Be Refused." Hit is a powerful killing machine who uses murderous techniques that made him successful in his job as an assassin. This episode could feature Goku's end.
It can be recalled that during their last fight, Hit was actually not using the full extent of his powers. He was not permitted to kill anyone in the tournament called Universe 6 vs Universe 7 where he and Goku had their first battle. Therefore, if he is only allowed to kill Goku in that tournament, he probably could have done so. This might happen in "Dragon Ball Super" episode 71.
Goku Will Face A Legendary Killer From Universe 8
Following episode 71 is "Dragon Ball Super" episode 72. This episode will have the title "Counter Attack" An Invisible Assassination Skill." It is slated for airing on Dec. 25. It will follow the events that happened in episode 71 and will feature the assassin's technique and skills in performing his job.
For those who do not know, Hit is a legendary killer who lives in Universe 6. He is called "Hit, the Infallible." This assassin is a humanoid who is very muscular, with purple skin and extremely dangerous. He is an honorable fighter who is also known for his bravery. Hit has a reputation of holding back his powers if his enemy is weak. So, will he not hold his powers back anymore when he meets Goku again?
