A Facebook leak of upcoming episode titles for Dragon Ball Super has revealed the name of Goku Black's Super Saiyan transformation: Super Saiyan Rose. This confirms the name of the pink Goku form that was shown in official artwork from Bandai a while back. The leak also claims that Episode 55, 56 and 57 will involve the Omni-King and feature a rematch between Son Goku and Goku Black.
Goku Black is the current antagonist of Dragon Ball. A being calling himself Son Goku (and looking identical to our hero), he showed up in Future Trunks timeline with a plan to eradicate humanity. He followed Trunks when he traveled back in time and managed to strand Trunks in the past before being pulled back to the future.
Dragon Ball Super is currently in the midst of the Future Trunks arc and the leaked episode titles show it is going full steam ahead. Episode 55's title is "I want to see Son Goku: a request from Zeno-Sama". Zeno is the "God of Everything" so whatever he's talking with Goku about is likely important. Episode 56 is called "The Rematch of Goku vs Black! Super Saiyan Rose Appears", which is pretty self explanatory. Goku Black is getting his power-up. Episode 57 follows, titled "Goku, Super Saiyan Blue". This indicates that Super Saiyan Rose will be too much to handle for Goku and he'll power up to his Blue state in response to Goku Black.
Episode 55 wil air on August 14 and episode 56 and 57 will air on August 21 and 28 respectively.
Looks like thinks are getting intense. What do you think of Goku Black's new transformation? Are you excited for the rematch?
