The debut of the new saga of Dragon Ball great brought the saga of Majin Buu, Goten and Trunks to the forefront of the narrative for the first time in a short period of time. Having the opportunity to tell a lighter and simpler story, Toyotaro decided to focus it on the character of Trunks, which is very different from what we've seen in the past.
That Future Tribes appeared during the Black Goku arc has nothing to do with its counterpart in the timeline that we know, which the author himself wanted to give a prominent place for several years. In the interview recently published on the series' official website, the mangaka, in which he discussed the motivations behind creating a superhero saga, also explained the main differences between the two two versions of Trunks appearing in the series.
“Trunks from the Future is a completely different character and that makes her difficult to draw. Their lives were completely different. I'd rather readers separate them. he's definitely different from Trunks from the future. Their tasks are in no way comparable", So Toyotaro brought up the subject, implicitly reaffirming the harsh existence of the future version of Trunks forced to go to Goku and Vegeta for help.
Besides, we've seen it Future Trunks' transformation into Super Saiyan 2, and also to another form achieved during the clash with Goku Black, but it is not yet clear if even the present-day Trunks are capable of reaching these stages. As always, let us know what you think in the comments.
In the same interview, Toyotaro revealed his favorite moment in the Granolah saga and finally we let you discover Mai's real age in Dragon Ball Super.
