Updates for “Dragon Ball Super” episode 49 reveal that Future Trunks might kill Black Goku to avenge Bulma. This article might contain spoilers. So, read at your own risk.
The next episode is entitled as “A Message from the Future! Goku Black Invades!” Meanwhile, the YouTube preview bears the description “Black Goku tracks and follows Future Trunks to the current time period. Black Goku makes his way to Goku and Vegeta’s timeline!” as quoted.
Hall of Fame Magazine reports that the Future Trunks’ arc will also contain his fight with the villain. The previous episodes showed that Black killed his mother on their own timeline.
The outlet also stated that Future Trunks would fight the antagonist in his Super Saiyan form. However, he will later realize that Black is more formidable so he still needs to power up.
The report also revealed that Goku and Vegeta in Fusion form might defeat Black. But should they win against the nemesis, the arc might end abruptly.
The Future Trunks arc got higher ratings than expected, notes Attack of the Fanboy. So, “Dragon Ball Super” creators might do the other way around to prolong the exciting arc. Meanwhile, the show might also reveal Black’s identity as an Android.
On the other hand, Future Trunks’ voice actor Takeshi Kusao revealed how evil Black Goku is.
The Bitbag quotes him saying “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.”
“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,” he added.
In other news, Amazon Japan hinted that “Dragon Ball Super” would only have 72-100 episodes. The DVD/Blu-ray sets reveal three boxes.
The boxes include the first set the features episodes 37-48, the second one with episodes 49-60 and the last one with episodes 61-72. The Future Trunks’ arc finale is still unpredictable so it might last up to a hundred.
