These days, “Dragon Ball Super” updates are making the rounds on the Internet. Here is a new trailer from the series’ upcoming installment “Future Trunks Arc”, which features Future Trunks, Bulma, a new woman and the new rising threat “Black.”
Toei anime has released this preview online, featuring the June 12 pilot episode “SOS From the Future! A New Black Enemy Reveals Himself!” The promo drops hints on what the fans can expect from the approaching chapter. As communicated earlier by the franchise, the story won’t highlight any happy reunion. Rather, it goes far ahead in the future where the world is under horrifying threat from an emerging mysterious enemy described as “Black.”
Clips in this 30-second trailer show Future Trunks meeting the new woman whose image has been released earlier by the anime team, says iDigitalTimes. Bulma is tinkering with a new time machine that will help Trunks travel back in time to hire Goku to confront “Black.” The menacing and shady “Black” appears covered in flames (in his full form) after 26 seconds in the promo.
The preview further shows ruined cities and Trunks struggling to hold his own against the powerful adversary. Clearly exhausted with trying to fight “Black” even with his Super Saiyan form, Future Trunks enlists the help of Goku and Vegeta for which he might be fleeing to.
“Black” so far is a mystery for the fans. A few days back, creator Akira Toriyama hinted that the character’s full name is Goku Black. From the name, it’s been widely speculated that the new villain might be the evil side of Goku. As a fan spoiler, the franchise released a poster where a smirking Goku was featured. He was nowhere resembling the happy-go-lucky fan favorite character that we know, Tech Times reports.
Is Goku turning evil? Alternatively, he might not be evil at all. Well, it is tough to say which is which at this stage when everything is kept under wraps. The villain seen in the trailer appears to be some kind of monster rather than human, but looks can be deceiving.
The mystery attached to “Black Goku” remains to be revealed. “Dragon Ball Super” premieres on June 12.
