“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,” Toriyama shared. “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.”
The new story arc will have Trunk, despite his level of power, coming back to the present time barely escaping the future alivea time when the Earth is supposed to be finally at peace. A new villain, called Black Goku, was also teased as perhaps the big villain of the arc. Moreover, Toriyama said that the arc will reveal many mysteries in the world of “Dragon Ball,” particularly in the history of Trunks.
“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!” Toriyama continued. “Even I haven’t checked the final script yet.”
“Let’s enjoy this together!”
