The upcoming episode, which bears the title “A Message from the Future! Goku Black Invades!” will also show the battle between Future Trunks and the antagonist, notes Yibada. The full synopsis will be revealed soon.

On the other hand, Attack of the Fanboy reported that “Dragon Ball Super” gained ratings because of Black Goku. Notably, the show got 8.4 rating which is the highest rate so far, according to the website.

This lead to the expectation that the Japanese anime series would deliver higher ratings because of the new villain. Fans may have to watch out and find the real identity of Black Goku, which is believed to be an Android from the Future Trunks’ timeline.

“You can feel in your bones just how evil Black is… it’s incredible. From your very first look at him, he’s just bad to the bone,” Future Trunks’ voice actor Takeshi Kusao said, quotes TheBitBag. “I’ll only say one thing about the end of the new chapter’s first episode, but this should say it all: it’s enough to make you go ‘there’s no way they can win.”

The Future Trunks arc which began on episode 47 focuses on his arrival and how they will fight against Black Goku. “Dragon Ball Super” episode 49 will be aired on Sunday, June 26, on Fuji TV
