The next three episode titles have been leaked early for Dragon Ball Kai — here is a quick run-down of what to expect in the upcoming weeks:
Episode 054 – April 25, 2010
“Goku Vanishes in Space… Super Warriors, Return to Life!”
Episode 055 – May 2, 2010
“That’s Earth, Papa… Freeza and his Father Strike Back”
Episode 056 – May 9, 2010
“I’ll Defeat Freeza! Another Super Saiyan”
As you can see, the series is jumping straight from Freeza’s demise on Planet Namek to his arrival on Earth. This is great to see, since it follows suit with the manga, but it also means we get to say goodbye to the Garlic Jr. arc. No matter how you feel about this change, it does appear that we will indeed be seeing Trunks in episode 55. Just as a reference, Trunks did not appear in Dragon Ball Z until episode 119. Also, although nothing official has been stated yet, many Japanese sources are indicating that Takeshi Kusao will in fact be reprising his role as Trunks in Kai. This is not really all too surprising, considering he is still voicing Trunks in all of the recent video games, but I will feel even better once it is officially announced.
