I'm kinda surprised so many here like the idea of having Nazawa as Black Goku.

Personally I think she's great, but her voice really didn't suit Turles (or Bardock for that matter). I feel it has the same, "your mom trying to do a bad guy voice" effect that people criticize Linda Young's Frieza for.

Maybe because Black Goku actually IS Goku it might fit more, but I dunno. I just really don't buy Nozawa's sinister voice.
If Black is Goku than it's normal for Nozawa to voice him. Anyway, I like her evil voice only in Super she annoyed me a little.
I think it's better that we didn't get a new episode title list they probably don't want to spoil the interesting stuff.

He was someone already in the hands of the newspaper Newtype? There is no title and no one has released yet?

I want Beerus and Whis to take center stage. I want them being more active so we can have actual growing and interesting characters to play off of and develop. Just make Black as strong as they are so they can be involved. The two of them are far more interesting than Goku and Vegeta are right now. Hopefully Trunks gets to go see them.
Why Dragon Ball Consistency in something such as power levels matter!

I do think Beerus and Whis will be missing for most of the arc as Black Goku does something to them and that is why Zeno gets involved.

Not really "news," but Ken Ohtsuka, who works on the show, drew the mysteriously young, not dead Mai.

... And, he uses the word "deformed"; I'm not sure if that's an acknowledgement that there needs to be some explaining of why Mai is around, or if he's being self-critical of his work like any artist. :P It's probably the latter.

He's just saying it's not a great drawing. MORE IMPORTANTLY THOUGH 4 hours ago he tweeted that he's scheduled to work on a Super episode.

EDIT: Beaten, lol.

Haha I think it is the latter as well :P It matches with Ootsuka's personality. He also bought the Resurrection 'F' anime comic recently in order to study Yamamuro's designs, so it seems as though he is working to improve himself right now?

It seems he is coming back, nice! I suspected he would be, but it is good to get a confirmation.

Voice acting is a subjective matter so there is really no point in arguing about it. For me Nozawa was fantastic as Tullece and i am happy that she is voicing Black Gokuu and i fully believe she will do a great job.

Yup. He uses デフォルメ, which is often used to refer to caricature in manga. So yeah, definitely chibi! :thumbup:

So... People were theorizing that Trunks blue hair might be some kind of homenage to Bulma. She is indeed killed by Black and Trunks dye his hair, plausible maybe?

He was seen with Bulma with blue hair though.

How can you not be hyped for the next arc after that new trailer? My hype level is over 9,000...

This was the most obvious thing that was bound to happen. Anyone who resembles Goku, or is related to him in anyway (male wise), is played by her - well, except for Raditz. But who really remembers/cares about him?

I'm seeing it as no different than the interactions between Tullece and Goku. Save for the, "Join me or die, Kakarotto!" bit. I could still honestly care less about the concept of Goku Black. But I will admit, I do love Nozawa's chilling voice when she portrays sinister characters.

Was it confirmed that it is Future Goku who becomes evil? Because I thought that it might be possible that Black merges/fuses with present Goku, probably making Vegeta and Trunks the protagonists of this arc.
