SOS From the Future! A Black New Enemy Appears!!
Future Trunks runs through his city which is now a flaming mess. The entire city is in dismay and is up in flames. He makes his way over to Bulma’s lab and they greet one another. It would appear that they haven’t seen each other in some time. Bulma then shows Trunks a container filled with a liquid of sorts. She explains that she has enough for a one-way trip. Trunks is shocked considering it took a full year just to collect the amount Bulma currently has. Bulma says that they need to take the chance regardless of how little or much she found.
Trunks is now ready to head off to Capsule Corp and Bulma wants to come with him because she wants to make sure that this liquid remains in good hands. Too many lives have been taken at the expense of making it. She also adds that Mai is waiting as well. Just as they are ready to leave, they are suddenly attacked by a black figure. All of the lab equipment is destroyed, and Bulma is killed! Trunks manages to escape this attack and promises to save this world no matter what.
Back in the present day timeline Goku reaches out to Piccolo to help him with his farming. He explains that in doing this they would be “training”, considering when he and Kuririn were children Kame Sennin had them doing this type of work all of the time! Piccolo is no fool. Goku then suggests that they have friendly competition between himself, Goten and Piccolo to see who can pick the most vegetables. Chi Chi then chimes in stating that she would like Goten to go study since he has a test this week.
Piccolo and Goku begin picking the vegetables and suddenly Kuririn arrives. He is surprised to see that Goku is there. He explains that Bulma told him that Vegeta went off training at Whis’ and Beerus’ place so he just figured he would be there as well. Goku, now distracted by the fact that he knows Vegeta is off training, quickly locks onto Vegeta’s ki and teleports over to Beerus’ place. Chi Chi then makes Kuririn take Goku’s place in order to finish the job he started.
Goku reaches Beerus’ planet and is made that Vegeta went there without him. Vegeta just calls him slow. Beerus turns to Goku and asks him for a gift, and Goku gives him some lettuce that he had been picking and coincidentally was carrying some at the time of his teleportation. Beerus takes a bite and is impressed! He does wonder, however, if this “lettuce” is really for that of a gift to a god.
Back in Future Trunks’ world Trunks makes it over to Mai’s place. He tells her what had happened to his mother (Bulma), specifically stating that “Black” now has the ability to sense ki. He shows Mai the canister filled with liquid and tells her that this should be enough energy to get them back to the past.
Back on Beerus’ planet, Goku and Vegeta take a break to eat some ramen. Beerus would much rather of had this as a gift rather than the lettuce Goku gave him earlier. Goku then wonders if she should bring some to the Omni-King the next time he sees him. Beerus becomes uneasy as hearing the name “Omni-King” alone freaks him out. Vegeta and Goku wonder what the issue is, and Whis then explains that the Omni-King is the most important person in the entire universe. Without the Omni-King, no one would exist. Goku then questions Whis about the Omni-Kings strength, and Whis simply states that judging people based on strength alone is a bad habit common of Saiyans. Beerus then jumps in and states that the Omni-King isn’t a fighter, but he is stronger than everyone. Whis notes that he has the power to wipe ANYTHING out in an instant. Furthermore, he states that there used to be a total of 18 universes, but the Omni-King destroyed six of them when he got just slightly offended. This is why everyone was nervous at the Universe 6 vs. Universe 7 tournament when Goku approached the Omni-King in the manner in which he did. Goku isn’t fazed by all of this information, in fact he is now even more excited for the next tournament.
Back in the future Main gives Trunks some canned food. Mai then tells him that what he was given to eat isn’t dog food! Times are clearly tough. A cat similar to Dr. Brief’s cat then approaches the two of them. Trunks then wonders if the cat will be able to survive on its own when they leave. Mai then says that cats simply forget the faces of their owners in around 3 days’ time. Trunks then offers up some of the food Mai had given him to her since he had eaten earlier. Mai is nervous that they only have enough fuel for a one-way trip, but Trunks notes that at this point the most important thing they can do is survive. This is their last hope. Either way, Bulma did hint at the fact that there would be a way for them to return home, but he just doesn’t know how as of yet. The next step is to head back to West City 17 years in the past to meet up with everyone as he did in the past.
Trunks suddenly senses Black’s ki so he and Mai rush off. Before you know it, the Black shadow figure appears. Against Trunks’ wishes, Mai then uses herself as a decoy so that Trunks can escape. She says that he is the one that must remain alive during this time of turmoil. Black then attacks Mai and she is sent flying! Trunks turns and runs to her. She too is now dead. Trunks then angrily looks up at the shadow who has been engulfed by smoke up to this point. The smoke then begins to clear and Black is revealed to look almost identical to Goku! “Black” Goku is shown wearing black and gray clothing, a red belt and one green earring. “Black” breaks his silence and says, “At long last…Today’s the day you die, Saiyan…!”
Next time on Dragon Ball Super…
