I’ve already made Trunks three or four years ago, but because I simply love Trunks, I wanted to make him again. And if I’m making him again, why not go Super Saiyan?
Trunks is a very unique character in Dragonball: he’s a swordsman, and he has a lot of things that other characters don’t have. I think there’s still a lot to uncover and reveal about this character.
So first and foremost, I tried to think about how I can express Trunks in a new way.
My approach to expressing his denim jacket, for example, was a big part of bringing something new and fresh to the design.
