Dragon Ball Super Anime Starts 'Future Trunks Arc' In June
posted on by Kyle Hallmark
The official website of the Dragon Ball Super television anime series revealed on Monday that the series will begin a "Future Trunks Arc" on June 12. Original creator Akira Toriyama is plotting the story and designing the new characters for the arc, including Future Trunks' design (below).
The new arc follows the conclusion of the "God of Destruction Champa" arc. After the end of the fight between universes six and seven, Goku and friends encounter Future Trunks once more. The website asks, "Why has Future Trunks returned to the present again after defeating Cell and attaining peace?" and "Who will be the future's new enemy?"
Toriyama teased in a comment that the new enemy will be called "Goku Black." He also teased that the arc will involve both the Gods of Destruction and the Supreme Kai.
Akira Toriyama is credited as the original creator, as well as for "original story & character concepts." Toei Animation's Kimitoshi Chioka (Hakaba Kitarō, Kamisama Kazoku) is the series director, and Naoko Sagawa (Yomiko Advertising, Inc.) and Atsushi Kido (Toei Animation) join Osamu Nozaki as producers. Kido entered Toei just as the company was animating the Dragon Ball Z anime's Frieza arc.
