Dragon Ball Super episode 47 entitled “New Chapter! An Obscure Enemy Appears!” with subtitle “A New Development Begins! The Boy returns to our time!” will be the start of the ‘new arc’ where two powerful characters are set to appear, Future Trunks and Black Goku. Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball Super, announced that the ‘new arc’ will be launched on June 12, 2016.
Black Goku is said to be from the Universe 6 and about 20 to 50 years from Future Trunks’ timeline. He resembles the physical appearance of Son Goku but with white hairs. Black Goku will be a threat to all the universes and Omni King, Whis and the Gods of Destruction will be joining forces to fight him.
“With the threat of the Androids resolved, a new menace threatens the world of the future! A man suddenly appears and goes on a rampage, driving humanity to the brink of extinction. Future Trunks resists but even the power of a Super Saiyan is no match for this man called ‘Black’. Future Bulma resolves to ask help from Goku and Vegeta in the world of the past. After taking half a year to gather enough fuel for a one-way trip in the time machine, the formidable foe ‘Black’ bars Bulma and Trunks’ way!”
Aside from Adult Trunks and Black Goku, another character is set to appear in Dragon Ball Super episode 47, Mai. According to Dragon Ball Super Wikia, Mai is Emperor Pilaf’s female minion. In the ‘Future Trunks Arc’, Mai will be fighting together with the Adult Trunks. Recalling in the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Pilaf and his henchmen made a wish to Shenron to bring them back to their childhood.
