Fans are definitely looking forward to the new arc as suggested by recent Dragon Ball Super spoilers. According to rumors, the upcoming plot will involve a very powerful villain that will be a threat to all the universes.

Some reports are suggesting that his evil could still be prevented with the help of Future Trunks, who will reportedly travel back in time to warn Son Goku about Black Goku’s coming.  Several theories have started to circulate that not even Omni King, Whis and the Gods of Destructions will be powerful enough to stop him. How can Son Goku help defeat the villain?

“Dragon Ball Super episode 47 entitled ‘New Chapter! An Obscure Enemy Appears!’ with the subtitle ‘A New Development Begins! The Boy returns to our time!’ will be the start of a ‘new arc’ where two powerful characters are set to appear, Future Trunks and Black Goku,” Sportsrageuous reported.

“Another thing that will surely bring curiosity for the Dragon Ball fans is how Black Goku is related to Son Goku,” the report added. “There must be a deep connection between the two as their name obviously implies.”

Anime Live Reactions recently dished on the upcoming arc and claimed that contrary to his name, Black Goku will have white hair.

Meanwhile, original author Akira Toriyama has previously broken his silence to share more information about the new arc. 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 who is too strong even for Trunks to handle, Black Goku!? (Well, you can probably imagine what he’s like just based on 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 are 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)!!”
