It was announced a few days ago that Trunks will be returning in a new Dragon Ball Super saga starting this June. The show’s creator has now hinted on who the new villain will be.

Kanzenshuu translated comments that Akira Toriyama made about the new Dragon Ball Super saga. It sounds like we will finally see an evil version of Goku.

He 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)!!

The Trunks saga of Dragon Ball Super will be airing on June 12th which should be episode 47. Episode 44 is expected to give us some clues on what is to come. This week’s episode 43 looks like it will just be comedy/filler.
