Latest Dragon Ball Super news and updates will definitely excite the fans who have been waiting for it. Particularly because it has been recently revealed that the highly anticipated new arc will see the light of day on June 12, 2016.  As Kanzenshuu reported, an official announcement about the new arc has already been released and it reads:

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.

The new arc that includes the return of “Future Trunks” and the introduction of “Black Goku” has definitely sent fans into a frenzy. Speculations on what to expect have also surfaced on the internet. Many people were claiming that the upcoming plot will be darker that the previous ones.

“Considering the fact that Black Goku would be a big enough threat to involve the Gods of Destruction and the Omni King, there is a very big possibility that his actions are far more sinister than other enemies which emerged before him,” Enstarz reported. “Couple that with the fact that Future Trunks would seem to be returning as a much more mature character, and these speculations become a lot more plausible.”

Meanwhile, original author Akira Toriyama has also decided to break his silence as he dished on the latest arc, “Dragon Ball Super” news suggested.  In a new statement, Toriyama said:

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)!!
