Dragon Ball Super is an anime that debuted in the summer of 2015, which is the squeal to the hit anime Dragon Ball Z. Dragon Ball Super takes place in the 10-year time skip that happens between Goku killing Kid Buu with the spirit bomb and Goku fighting Uub (Majin Buu’s reincarnation).
The Future Trunks arc is the fourth of the five arcs that take place in this anime. This arc takes place right after the universe 6 tournament arc. At the very end of the final episode of the universe 6 tournament arc, after the end credits, where they put the next episode preview, they show a destroyed city, it’s raining, and a flash of lightning shows future Trunks. We haven’t seen Future Trunks since the end of the Cell arc from Dragon Ball Z. Trunks time travels to the past so we can get Goku and his dad, Vegeta to come to the future because the enemy of his timeline is killing everyone on earth, and his name is Goku Black, also known as “Black”.
This is the arc that gave me one of my top favorite villains in Dragon Ball. Goku Black is an amazing character. He brought us an evil Saiyan that fans wanted for years! He also mastered Super Saiyan (in the manga) and created his own level being Super Saiyan Rosé. This arc also gave some amazing moments (*SPOILERS*) like bringing Future Trucks into Super, it gave us Goku Black and Zamasu, a father/son Galik Gun from Trunks and Vegeta. An amazing rage moment from Goku where he fights seriously. It also brought us another throwback moments when they brought back the potara earrings and gave us Vegeto, and also Super Saiyan Blue Vegeto.
I absolutely love this arc, this is my second favorite arc in all of Dragon Ball Super. The animation and art for this whole arc was amazing, it was great to see Future Trunks again and get the 3 Saiyans fighting together, not to mention all the fantastic moments through this arc, and all the new moves and attacks were stunning.
I would highly recommend this arc to any Dragon Ball fan. The art and animation are an 8/10 and the story itself is an 8/10. I have to give this arc an 8/10.
My question for today is an old school kind of question. If you could have any power which power would you pick? Healing factor? Have Ki/Chakra/Nen? Flight? Let me know!
And as always, have a great day!
