Warning: Spoiler for chapter #93 of Dragon Ball Supertrunk And Goten seems to be retconned into the events of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero long before they actually show up at the end of the original movie. It remains to be seen how they will actually get involved, but the Dragon Ball Super manga is setting the stage for young Saiyans to play a bigger role in the fight against the Red Ribbon than in the movie.
In Dragon Ball Super chapter #93 by writer Akira Toriyama, artist Toyotarou, translator Caleb Cook and letter writer Brandon Bovia, after Piccolo is awakened to his true potential by the Dragon Balls, Trunks sees Namekian fly. Go and call Goten to see him. . The two young Saiyans have been absent for the last few chapters of the manga, after having a full mini-preque to the film dedicated to them. With Piccolo secretly interfering with Red Ribbon’s plan to kidnap Pan, Goten and Trunks could play an important role.
Goten and Trunks will play a bigger role in the manga than in the movie
Although the manga doesn’t say what Trunks thought after seeing Piccolo fly away, it’s clear that he wanted Goten to meet him and bring his superhero watch because he felt something serious was about to happen. out implies that he might want to get in on the action. . The chapter ends with Piccolo going to kidnap Pan giving the impression that Trunks and Goten are somehow involved in the entire mission. The only caveat is that the manga is currently adapting moments from the movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, in which Trunks and Goten don’t appear until near the end.
While the manga has deviated from the original a few times, none have been as big as what this potential retcon is capable of. That said, an earlier chapter recast Krillin into a scene where he initially had nothing to do with anything. In the film, Magenta’s driver turns the car around after Dr. Hedo’s cyborg wasp flies right beside him. In the manga, the car starts spinning after Krillin shoots a wasp that’s parked on the windshield, startling the driver.
In the wasp scene, the manga barely changes the events that originally occurred in the film. In the upcoming scene with Goten and Trunks, it’s possible that the fake footage Piccolo shoots of Pan being captured will trick Goten and Trunks into taking up arms against the Red Ribbon, presumably after notifying Gohan. The manga also revises the silly reason why Bulma couldn’t reach Whis about bringing Goku and Vegeta to Earth, which sets a precedent for changing the manga’s story even more, as many fans have complained complain about the adaptation being too honest and almost embellished. has nothing to do with the story of the movie. Hope, Goten And trunk‘ incorporated into the original Seven Super Dragon Balls: Super Hero story will fix this problem.
