"While I don't think Nozawa-san knows it yet, you can feel in your bones just how evil Black is... it's incredible," Trunks voice actor Takeshi Kusao said about Black Goku. "From your very first look at him, he's just bad to the bone. I'll only say one thing about the end of the new chapter's first episode, but this should say it all: it's enough to make you go 'there's no way they can win...'"
