Dragonball Super - Sinner (Demi-God?) by Rider4Z Dragonball Super - Sinner (Demi-God?) by Rider4Z
So if you follow my statuses you already should know I lost my shit with episode 61. Again, I know I'm critical of Dragonball Super because of my long term love of Dragonball Z, but I am not afraid to admit when they do something right. More than right, spectacular. I try to avoid all spoilers before watching the episodes, but my eyes accidentally crossed the title "The Super Power of Trunks", so I technically knew it was coming. What did surprise me in the very best possible way was how it was triggered. It was not due to some trope of losing a loved one, it was due to something much deeper. The core essence of who Trunks is was challenged. He is a protector. A guardian. His one mission in life has always been to ensure the survival of the human race. He did not choose this path. It was chosen for him, because he is the only one left of his time who can fight, regardless of whatever taboos some random god put on the act of time traveling.

"If that makes me a sinner, then SO BE IT!!"

So what do you guys think this transformation is? He's got the SSJBlue (god) aura underneath the gold, but his eyes are like the legendary super saiyan... Also I am SO glad they didn't make him ssj3. Would have been a cop out.

Future Trunks' Super Saiyan Rage is awesome when you first see it come to life. The entrance was so chilling it's cool. I love it.

Though I love the manga more, Trunks' part in the anime is incredible. He got to take on Goku Black and even the Merged Zamasu.

I would say you hit the nail on the head on describing what made this moment a real turning point for the Future Trunk's Arc.

Honestly this has to be the second best transformation moment in all of Dragonball, right after Gohan going Ssj2.

On the note of Trunks, what do you think of his portrayal in the TFS Abridged Dub and how does comepare to the Japanese and Original Dubs?

I got goosebump when Trunks fist crack into the ground and turned the berserk of a new SSJ form,
while step crushes the tile and a quote kinda similar from Gohan in Mystic form.

Trunks: I WILL KILL YOU!
Gohan: Fight you? No, I'M GONNA KILL YOU!

YESSSSSS OMG this is beyond awesome!!!! :happybounce: I think I've fainted. Clap Wow! WOOT- Emoticon 

I love the background, says so much!! I'm starting to love this arc a lot more now. I originally thought maybe he'd tap into SSJ3 with all that anger, or even a God because that whole thing about him being the reason for ALL of that happening... :kooloolimp...oh...:  I hope something epic happens with him and that it's not just a quick shot and he's down and out again... idk, we'll see though. Great job as always!!

Oh yeah, my heart was actually aching when Zamasu and Black were splurting out those words. I was like "Oh no, you didn't just say that, you son of a..!".
As you mentioned, that accusation offends the very core of what Trunks is and it's like telling him all the efforts and sufferings he went through were useless, and not only that, like they made everything worse.
It's just normal he'd have a shock in hearing that and react the way he did.
Even though technically the two Zamasu are correct, that's a very, very, very mean thing to say to someone who sacrificed everything and lost everything while trying to do good. I'm very angry at them. How could they!

I think that because of this, and other things that have happened, this will be the last time we see Future Trunks :( The time machine is gone, Bulma is driving the other one back home.. plus he will probably never ever want to meddle with time again after getting told off by both Beerus/Whis and these other two fools. :(

Unless they pull a Xenoverse on us and put him on Time Patrol for this exact reason, that is :P

Great job on the drawing :D have another favorite!

Yeah the idea that Trunks gave Bulma the time machine to take her, Vegeta and Goku back to the past is very unsettling to me. Trunks without the time machine is like Trunks without his sword.

I had goose bumps watching that scene, Trunks has so much (emotional) baggage and responsibility it's amazing he'd not be insane by now.
That makes him in such a admirable character, he somehow feels more "real" than all the others who seem to have trouble to take anything seriously.
But I guess a life of prosperity will do that.
And by the way, Trunks did the right thing by going back in time otherwise people would have died anyway no matter what.

This is not the ssj blue form , but I think he's half way there.
Some people are saying that he can't turn into a super saiyan god because he's a hybrid, but if that were true shouldn't he also be unable to turn into a super saiyan?
Despite his duality of blood he's still a super saiyan and not a super half saiyan.

Great art as usual from you.
