Dragon Ball Super finally goten and trunks aged in the latest new anime release, and now these older versions of Dragon Ball Super: Superhero will also finally come to the manga with the next big arc of the series! There were some complaints about that Dragon Ball Super fans have had on the series that includes not only the fact that other fan favorites were pushed aside in favor of more Goku and Vegeta-focused arcs, but Goten and Trunks remained the same age despite how long they had been on the series to this point.
Dragon Ball Super has announced the next big arc for the manga release of the series as it prepares to return from a hiatus next month, revealing that Goten and Trunks will be starring. But the exciting thing about this new arc is the fact that it’s a lot like seen in Dragon Ball Super: Superhero, teenage Goten and Trunks also come to the manga. This means that we also move forward in time with the story of the manga.
What will Teenage Goten and Trunks do in Dragon Ball Super?
Dragon Ball Super kicks off its next big arc on December 21 in Japan (and likely December 20 for fans in North America), and that means it’s finally returning from its hiatus with Chapter 88 of the series. Dubbed the “Super Hero” arc, it was revealed that the teenage Goten and Trunks will play central roles in it and become superheroes in their own right. It is very likely that this ties in with the events of the Dragon Ball Super: Superhero feature film, but Dragon Ball’s official website hasn’t revealed that yet.

While it’s been teased that those behind the Dragon Ball franchise consider the anime and manga timelines to be two different entities, fans are still trying to figure out where the exclusive manga arcs like the Granolah the Survivor and Galactic Patrol Prisoner end up. the general canon. Perhaps this will help things along.
