Future Trunks Prepares To Square Off Against Black Goku In New "Dragon Ball Super" Arcs

In other Super doings, Satomi Kōrogi has joined the cast as Zen’ō, the Omni-king of all things

The Dragon Ball Super TV anime, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the anime version of Akira Toriyama's martial arts comedy action classic, is preparing to wrap up its Universe 6 Saga. Taking its place next month is a real potential fan-pleaser, a new Future Trunks story!



The series site hypes:

The “Future” Trunks Arc Starts!

On June 12, 2016, Dragon Ball Super shows a new storyline… With Goku and the gang having finished the tournament against Universe 6, Trunks returns from the future and appears before them.

It’s the start of the “‘Future’ Trunks Arc”, a new plot line with story and characters based an original draft by Akira Toriyama.

After he defeated Cell, Trunks’ future was supposed to be at peace, so why has he re-appeared in the present…?

What is this new enemy in the future…?

The hotly anticipated new chapter starts June 12.


And creator Akira Toriyama offers the comments 

Next up in Dragon Ball Super, adult Trunks will be putting in his first appearance in a long time! I put together this story based on a suggestion from the editorial office. Like last time, I write an outline of the entire plot, then the script writers break it up into episodes, expanding on things, changing things around, or adding in new bits as need be.

Despite being so strong, Trunks barely escapes from the future with his life.

The future was supposed to be at peace, so what in the world could have happened!?

And what about this foe too strong even for Trunks to handle, Black Goku!? (Well, you can probably imagine what he’s like just based off the name)

It’s the start of a battle that surpasses time and space, and drags in the God of Destruction, Kaiōshin, even the Omni-King! Many mysteries will be revealed!

There’s some confusing bits with time changing here and there, but just bear with me. It should definitely turn out to be a fun story!

Even I haven’t checked the final script yet.

Let’s enjoy this together (laughs)!!


In other Super doings, Satomi Kōrogi (Pokemon, Utena's ChuChu, various other mascots and animals, Blood Blockade Battlefront's Aligura) has joined the cast as Zen’ō, the Omni-king of all things, along with Masaya Takatsuka and Yūsei Oda as the two attendants, and Ryūzaburō Ōtomo as Super Shenlong.
