Hit is a killer and was nowhere near his maximum in the tournament. Goku will lose easily.

I reckon TOEI will put Goku back in his RoF gi at some point, if only to make up some excuse for him to use Super Saiyan 3 and sell toys of that outfit with that form.

I personally believe the only reason they ever took him and Vegeta out of that outfit was for Vegetto.

Now that's over, they should put him back in it.

Wait....let me get this right.

The episode on December 18th is that a one off episode? An arc? Is it the start if an arc? Is it a Toriyama or Toei arc?

Are the episodes on December 4th and the 11th the filler episodes?

The episode on the 18th could be a one off, but I reckon it'll be the start of an anime only arc.

Yeah I think they've hyped it up a bit too much to be stand alone. Probably a couple of episodes to tide us over until January.

Toyotaro mentioned that the manga would be ahead of the anime soon and that would seem impossible if this Assassination arc was a canon one so I'm guessing filler yeah.

A mini-arc for the anime only, I guess.

He was thinking he could win with his kaioken, but this is a very dangerous technique.

It's not any person who can travel between universes. It's suspicious that Hit's employer could send him to U7. I guess it could be Whis testing Goku, but who knows, this might be interesting.

This has huge potential and would be a waste by Toei if they did not create it into an arc.

Goku in general is much stronger thanks to fighting Black, Future Zamasu, and Merged Zamasu and we saw him used the Kaioken last episode.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.

Hit looks a bit like Cell.

So Gohan has to beat him

How do we know that this a filler arc or not? I think it's possible that the new information was posted earlier than expected. I think the idea of Goku being dead for other fighters to take on Hit and the new characters is a good idea. Besides Goku will likely be wish back by the Namek Dragon Balls anyways since we know that he is still alive at the end of DBZ. My theory could be that someone has made Hit stronger or Hit will kill Goku off guard. It would also be the first time that Goku's death was not a result of sacrificing himself in the main timeline.

I feel like it'll be foreshadowing the next arc, like the person who sent Hit is the next arc's villain. Like ho the time travel fuel was seen in the filler episodes before the Black Arc.

Sure, the actual content may differ but the title does say that.

It seems Herms chose not to compromise, it might be a good call since we don't really know what will happen.

That doesn't mean Goku die, it's just Hit's order.

I agree. Right now it's an interesring-er premise than the Potafu arc. Imo Toei delivered on that (I thought it was better then the U6 arc in all honesty) so quite confident they can deliver this!
