Spoilers will be talked about below, so please be sure to watch the latest episode before reading on! This review is based off of the dub version of Super that currently airs on Toonami.
Episode 107 was actually a wild one from start to finish, as Frost finally made his evil presence felt in the Tournament Of Power and a few more eliminations occurred! So without further padding, lets get right down into it with our review, shall we?
We open up Episode 107 with some details about why Frost entered the Tournament Of Power to begin with in form of a flash back. It turns out that due to his actions the last time we saw him episodes ago, he’s actually become a wanted criminal — similar to Frieza — throughout Universe 6. After being founded by Hit and taken to Champa, Frost seeks pardon from his crimes as his reward for helping Universe 6 wins. After a few back and forth between the two, Champa eventually grants Frost his request.
Back in the present we cut to the Omni-Kings up on their stands as they begin to keep track of everyone who has been eliminated. The Grand Minister then informs the little gods that only 34 fighters remain and the universe that are around are Universe, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 11. He even breaks down how many fighters are left for each universe with both Universe 6 and 7 having the edge with the most fighters, but mysteriously Universe 4 only has two known fighters out of four so far. Beerus suspects that this is another trick by Universe 4’s God Of Destruction — who was the same one behind the assassins that attacked Goku and Frieza episodes back, and the ones who fought against Roshi two episodes ago. Turns out he was right!
Suddenly a mysteriously blue fighter from Universe 4 appears and starts to pick a fight against Unvierse 11’s remaining 3 Pride Troopers of Top, Jiren and Dyspo. Dyspo goes at him and easily beats him with a massive Ki blast which rips a hole through the blue fighter of Universe 4. While screaming out in pain towards Dyspo about his near death state, causes Dyspo to walk up closer. This is nothing but a sneak attack as it turns out that the blue fighter is actually made out of liquid and can regenerate. He grows in size and traps Dyspo on the ground and is about to cut off the rabbit fighter’s ears off. That is is, until Jiren finally walks up to the blue fighter. Jiren doesn’t have to land a punch at all though, as Dyspo due to the distraction is finally free and escapes. The blue fighter charges at Jiren but Jiren simply lets out a shockwave that can be felt throughout the battlefield! He sends that blue fighter flying back into the stands, landing on his Unvierse 4 Supreme Kai’s hand as a tiny blob. Think Baby Groot.
Goku and everyone is in awe over Jiren’s immense power, but there’s no rest for them as the battle rages on. Roshi however, in his old and weak state after the last three fights, is resting away from everyone in secret. Well that is until Frost suddenly appears behind him and starts fighting the old Turtle Hermit. Frost is pure villain at this point and hates the fact that he can’t kill Roshi at all due to the tournament’s rules. So instead he starts beating the crap out of Roshi, — who tries to put up a decent fight but is no match. Roshi however, has a trick up his sleeve, it’s another Evil Containment Wave! He traps Frost in the green whirlwind and begins to send frost into the tiny sealing jar, but due to Roshi being too weak to fully handle the move he can’t trap Frost in it. Frost notices such a skill and the jar before him and doesn’t crush it or try to hurt Roshi too much. He has a plan now, and luckily he spots Vegeta standing off in the distance who he too shoots to get Vegeta’s attention. Vegeta is irate as we cut to a commercial break.
Once we’re back, Frost is still having his way with Roshi and is about to deliver a crippling blow when Vegeta swoops in for the save, leading to an unlikely paring. Roshi is too spent though to help out and instead it’s Vegeta against Frost until suddenly Magenta also appears to back up Frost. It becomes a handicap against Vegeta as Roshi watches on hapless. That is until Roshi has another idea to use the Evil Containment Wave on Frost and Magenta.
Frost however counters this second Evil Containment Wave from Roshi and seals Vegeta instead in the left over tiny sealing jar that was at his feat minutes ago! With Vegeta trapped, Frost begins to torture Roshi again with Death Beams, crippling Roshi entirely. However, before Roshi falls he throws a really small Ki beam out as desperation. It misses Frost and Magenta, however they were never the target, instead Roshi hit the tiny sealing jar, breaking it open and freeing Vegeta who’s pissed off at Frost. Frost panics and escapes leaving Magenta alone, who is swiftly eliminated. Roshi however is on the edge, like literally he’s by the edge of the arena and near a ring out himself, he apologizes to Vegeta for being a liability at this point and eliminates himself off the arena as he passes out. Back in the stands Tien and Krillian help Roshi with a sensu bean and Beerus pokes fun at the three of them for being the bald group of Universe 7. We end the episode with a cut to Goku as he faces off against the red fighter of Universe 2 — the one who would do the Sailor Moon transformations.
Finally, after weeks of asking, we get Frost in the tournament! It’s refreshing to actually see a true villain make his way in the tournament now. Cause up to this point, besides Frieza, we haven’t really seen villainous characters do things, almost everyone has either been a hero or someone in-between like Hit. So by having Frost, someone who would have actually killed Roshi if this was any other ordinary saga in Dragon Ball Super, appear it was refreshing and added more weight to the episode. The only thing I found weird was how we briefly only saw Champa in the episode, once in the flashback with Frost and then again when Valdos was trying to calm him down during the initial Grand Minster scenes. Would have been great to see him banter with his brother Beerus, over how Frost was behaving against Roshi. If anything though, it’s nice to see Beerus softening up to the Universe 7 team as the tournament progresses he seems to genuinely like having them around these days compared to how he use to be.
Still though, I’m waiting for Cabba and Frieza to finally make their entrances now. Also I’m curious as to why Frieza never showed up to do some underhanded ploy with Frost, like it was hinted at during the start of the Tournament Of Power. Maybe we’ll find out more next week?
