After a long break, the Dragon Ball Super manga is back with a saga that combines the work of Toyotaro and Toriyama with the film TOEI Animation Dragon Ball Super: Superheroes. But how did the idea for this narrative arc, which puts Goku and Vegeta aside for the first time, come about?
Gas has been defeated, but the universe is not yet safe. Stronger than ever Frieza has returned majestically with a transformation capable of ridiculing Ultra Instinct and Ultra Ego. As the two Saiyans prepare for their toughest battle ever, the spotlight of the series is taken over by two characters who haven't yet made their own place in the series, Goten and Trunks.
About the new saga of dragon ball super manga, during an interview with the franchise's official website, author Toyotaro revealed some interesting background information. Master Toriyama's designated heir spoke about how the idea of such a saga was born and revealed that it has distant origins.
during one Meeting between Toriyama, Toyotaro and other employees it had been decided that Goku and Vegeta had been the protagonists for too long and that the story was taking too intergalactic a turn. As a result, it was decided that the new arc should be set on Earth, with Goten and Trunks as the protagonists. It stars Trunks, a character Toyotaro has wanted to write a side story about for years. However, the idea of making a superhero out of Vegeta's son came from Toriyama.
Toyotaro then pointed this out Differences between Trunks and Future Trunks, two characters who look almost alike but lead two completely opposite lives, one enjoyable and the other complicated. Eventually he provided some advances to Dragon Ball Super 89.
