Goku Black’s New Dub Voice Revealed!
I think the one thing we all who are watching the Dragon Ball Super Dub is for the Future Trunks arc and the MOST important character – GOKU BLACK! Goku Black was one of the most bad ass villain we’ve received in the whole anime franchise and also someone who actually was fearsome. There was a real sense of dread and the face of Goku was just adding more fuel to the villain score.
The bad boy Goku personality was enough to attract many fans to increase the popularity of the show. Last night, Toonami put those fans at ease by debuting Goku Black’s new voice when the ‘Future Trunks’ arc kicked off.
So, if you need to listen to the voice a few more times, no worries. You can check out the performance below.
As you can see, Toonami aired Sean Schemmel’s new take on Goku Black last night when episode 47 aired. The dark installment saw the ‘Future Trunks’ arc get underway as audiences watched the hero’s world get wrecked by a mysterious villain. At first, Goku Black was kept in the shadows as he delivered a series of deadly attacks, but he could only stay hidden for so long.

Eventually, Goku Black had to come out to play, and his first speech to Trunks had fans feeling properly threatened.
“It’s about time, Saiyan,” Goku Black tells Trunks when the meet face-to-face. “You’ve been running around making messes for too long, and I want to choke the life from you. I can’t wait to watch you die.”
If you are familiar with Dragon Ball’s dub, then you know this is the first time the anime has shown off Goku Black. However, Schemmel has given performances of the baddie before for video games franchises like Xenoverse. In the past, fans were mixed with their reception of Goku Black because his dub used a very gruff voice. When he went Super Saiyan Rose, Goku Black adopted a British accent, but Dragon Ball Super is likely to make adjustments to that as the anime moves forward.
