When it comes to Dragon Ball, there are few people in the world who know Piccolo like Toshio Furukawa. The actor has overseen the character since the anime got underway, and he’s still minding the Namekian to this day. It won’t be long before the voice actor revisits Piccolo on the big screen courtesy of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. And now, a new interview has Furukawa breaking his silence on Piccolo and his new form.
The chat was posted on the official Dragon Ball website recently, and it is there Furukawa opened up about Piccolo’s next big role. It was there the actor was asked about his Potential Unleashed form, and of course, the actor said he was thrilled to see Piccolo get a boost even if it took him a while to see it for himself.
“The first time we recorded, the visuals were all just line drawings, so I couldn’t really tell that he looked any different. Afterward, they added in the colors and I got a better feel for how Piccolo would change,” Furukawa admitted.
“Piccolo hasn’t really had any transformations per se throughout the series, so I was quite happy that he finally got one. Fans were very apt to notice Piccolo’s changes too, weren’t they? They really do pay close attention.”

Of course, Furukawa is certainly right with his observation. As soon as Dragon Ball Super outed Piccolo’s new form with a poster, fans were quick to analyze it online. Now, all eyes are on the Namekian as Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero prepares to go live next month. Netizens are eager to learn how Piccolo taps into this power which seems so similar to Gohan’s Ultimate form. And of course, they’re sure the boost will gift Piccolo an array of epic new attacks.
