Episode Summary

Trunks is image training by himself on the lake near Capsule Corporation. He pictures himself fighting Black, but cannot envision any way of winning. Inside the laboratory, Dr. Brief says that they have finally stored up enough time machine fuel for a round-way trip. Pilaf wanders in and starts messing around with the time machine’s emergency restart program, and Bulma is impressed when she sees he has actually managed to improve it. She wonders who Pilaf reallyis, but he insists he is simply an ordinary kid. Either way, the time machine is almost ready to go!

Mai and Shuu watch Trunks as he continues his image training. When Shuu explains the concept of image training to Mai, she tries it out for herself… but ends up fantasizing about kissing Trunks instead. Suddenly, something crashes down to Earth: Whis, Beerus, and Goku have returned. Whis claims that Beerus and Goku’s noisy arguing prevented him from moderating his speed properly, but Beerus accuses him of crashing on purpose. They explain what they have learned to Trunks, who wonders if perhaps Zamasu disguises himself as Black, or uses his divine powers to shape-shift.

Whatever the case may be, Zamasu and Black’s ki is simply too close to be a coincidence. And yet, while Black had extremely evil ki, Zamasu’s ki is not so evil. What’s more, Zamasu did not know Goku, while Black did. So while they may be similar, it is hard to concretely connect them… right now. But perhaps Zamasu will come to think dangerous thoughts in the future.

Still, Goku continues to maintain that Zamasu did not seem that evil to him. Having sparred with the guy, Goku thinks he has the best grasp of his personality. Hearing how Goku fought a Kaiōshin and even a God of Destruction, Trunks starts thinking that Goku on his own should be more than enough to defeat Black. As Trunks wonders if they even need his help at all, Vegeta asks for a moment with his son: he is going to give him some training!

Over in the Kaiōshin Realm of Universe 10, Gowasu tries out Zamasu’s latest cup of tea, and finds it a bit off-flavor. Is it the fault of the tea leaves, or… is something the matter with Zamasu? But there are other concerns: a new race of mortals has popped up on the planet Babari, and Gowasu wants to see what will become of them. At present they are extremely primitive and violent, and Zamasu suggests exterminating them right now. Gowasu is taken aback: that sort of thing is the job of Gods of Destruction! Instead, he simply wants to observe the state of the Babarians 1,000 years in the future, to see if they will have become more civilized by then.

Gowasu retrieves the Time Rings, which he explains are for traveling to and from the future. But never to the past! That is impossible… and even if possible, is strictly forbidden, since changing history is always dangerous. He tells Zamasu about the differently colored Time Rings in the box: those were born when history was changed, creating parallel worlds. In fact, a new ring was created just a few years ago, apparently the result of “some idiot” creating a parallel world.

Before they take off to the future, Gowasu warns Zamasu that only Kaiōshin are qualified to use the Time Rings. As such, an apprentice like him cannot go… so Gowasu says that he is now officially promoted to being a full-fledged Kaiōshin! He hands Zamasu one of his green Potara earrings, telling him to be careful putting it on. Otherwise, they will end up permanently fused together into a single Kaiōshin, something neither seems too anxious to do at the moment. Arriving in the future, they see that the Babarians have developed a certain degree of culture but remain violent, and Zamasu thinks to himself that the universe will never be at peace so long as mortals are around.

Back on Earth, Trunks and Vegeta prepare to train. Trunks remembers the last time they trained together, in the Room of Spirit and Time. He tells Vegeta not to hold back, and to use the same Super Saiyan 3 form as Goku. Vegeta laughs at this idea, and instead becomes Super Saiyan Blue. Trunks is shocked that he can no longer sense Vegeta’s ki, yet still feels overwhelming pressure. He realizes that this is the sort of divine ki Goku must have used to fight Beerus with. Seeing Trunks’ hesitancy, Vegeta gives him a handicap: if he manages to land even a single blow, he “wins”.

Trunks turns into the extremely buff form he used against Cell, which Vegeta dismisses as being too slow. However, Trunks quickly reverts to a faster form and tries to land a punch, and Vegeta realizes Trunks was just trying to put him off guard by showing him the other transformation. He awards Trunks 30 points! Overwhelmed by his father’s strength, Trunks again thinks that he is not needed: surely Goku and Vegeta can defeat Black. There is no need for him to grow stronger…

Sensing his son’s thoughts, Vegeta rebukes him: is defeating Black his only goal? He needs to look ahead, to new enemies that might appear. As an inheritor of Saiyan blood, and as Vegeta’s son, Trunks should never accept losing to anybody! He should aim to be the strongest in the universe! Bulma and Goku happen to be passing by, and Bulma gets worried when she sees Vegeta being so hard on Trunks, but Goku explains that this is just how Saiyans do things. With Vegeta distracted, Trunks manages to land a punch. He passes the test! The sparring match ends, with Trunks declaring he will surpass both Vegeta and Black. He bows and thanks his father.

Back on Beerus’ planet, Whis is preparing dinner when a call comes in over his staff. Whis is busy, so Beerus answers it… and is shocked to see it’s a call from the Omni-King! It seems he wants to meet with Goku…

Next Time:
“Hey, I Wanna Meet Son Goku — A Summons from the Omni-King!”

Episode Notes

  • Planet Babari’s name (ババリ星; babari-sei) is likely taken from the word “barbarian”, a being who is perceived to be uncivilized or primitive.
    バーバリアン (ba·a·ba·ri·a·n)  ›  ババリ (ba·ba·ri)
