Fans are undoubtedly excited to see Android 17 again. It can be recalled that Android 17 was last seen in the Super Buu Saga in “Dragon Ball Z” where he was shown living as a park ranger after being revived by Vegeta’s wish. Android 17 used to be a villain in the series, but he transformed into a good guy and even helped Goku defeat Buu.
It is no secret that Android 17 is a powerful and formidable fighter. And with Universe 7 in danger, Goku has to look for the most capable of beings to help him. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that Android 17 would be on his list.
However, there is still a long way to go before Android 17 is reintroduced in episode 85. There are still episodes 82 to 84, with the first one airing on March 19. Episode 83 will then air on March 26 and, finally, episode 84 on April 2. That means episode 85 will not premiere until April 9.
And even though it may seem like a long wait, it may very well be worth it to see Goku gathering resources and recruiting reinforcements in order to save Universe 7. With a team consisting of Vegeta, Majin Buu, Krillin, Piccolo, Gohan, Tenshinhan, Master Roshi, Android 18 and Android 17, the Universe Survival Arc is definitely one to watch.
