Black Goku might get a transformation in an upcoming episode of Dragon Ball Super. In English, people are calling this “Super Saiyan Pink,” but according to this Japanese TV anime listing (via Dragon Ball Sokuhou), it’s called “Super Saiyan Rose” (超サイヤ人ロゼ).

And for yet further proof, this is apparently leaked official art of Goku Black’s Super Saiyan Rose form.

Has it really come to this? A new hair color? Let me guess, Goku also gets stronger right? Toriyama isn’t even trying anymore and honestly, he doesn’t have to, fans will gobble this shit up and defend it to the death. I expect some mouth frothers to attack me for my blasphemous stance. But for the record, I love Dragonball Z. This? I don’t even want to think about it.

For those who do/can stomach this stuff, does Goku at least learn new moves or powers? Or is he still firin away Kamehamehas like it’s 1989?
