Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Nothing in the latest 2ch thread about them. I'll check back one more.

Edit: nothing in the previous one either, nor at yonkou. I think they're fake, but I could be wrong.

Re: Is the Battle Royale format a good idea?

A Battle Royale can work fine. My problem is with the arena. Toei does not have the resources and time to fully animate the entire battle royale going on at an angle where we see the whole ring. I suggest as long as we're pulling stuff from The Hunger Games, to go full in and actually have the battl...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I think the ED's animation is a hint. I think Vegeta's going out third. I think he'll either lose to Brianne or defeat her and then lose to Jiren. His characterization this arc is too flimsy for him to have a big enough part to last till the end. I do think it'll be Gokû and Gohan at the finish. Th...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

It could be the opening animation's dragon ball number count instead. Even though it's hard to make out who has what number balls, Krillin is holding the one star ball there. That would at least conflict with the ending's count side by the opening Vegeta would be one of the last three remaining as o...

Re: Is kale too much like broly

Yes she is too much like Brolli, in battle. She's only herself when she's in base form, but whenever she transforms she becomes Brolli. They could've had her still go wild when she transforms without making her look like Brolli's twin sister copying his moves, looks, quotes, etc. Pull a ssj2 Gohan i...

Re: If at all, how did Linkin Park affect your experience with Dragon Ball (or anime overall)?

I'm familiar with Linkin Park, can't say I'm a fan, but I've heard their songs on the radio. They're ok, a bit too angsty for me, but it felt like it came from an honest place and now that I've recently learned the singer was battling depression I can understand it. In fact the radio is where I firs...

Re: Kale or Broly - the worse motivation

Neither motivation seems particularly Toriyama-esque. What do you mean by that? As for the topic both of them are terrible and I don't care for Kale or Broly. Neither one is that straightforward or gag-y. Brolli's motivation feels like what could've been a Toriyama-style joke motive of "Kakarr...

Re: Kale or Broly - the worse motivation

Brolli's motivation of "Kakarrotto's crying when we were babies drove me to madness!" is way more far-fetched than Kale's, but if you can roll with it, it can be fun in a don't-think-too-hard-about-it way. I don't think he was deserving of 3 movies, but the initial movie 8 was fine. It's p...

Re: Defining and Exploring Fandom in the Digital Age

Social media supplanting individually-created sites is the biggest change I've seen. There's a lot more sensitivity. People are more passionate about their favorite characters. Pre-social-media I don't recall fans referring to characters they like in family terms--you'll see characters getting calle...

Re: Does your enjoyment of Super lead you to not particpate in Discussions?

More than positive or negative, it's whether the episode was interesting to me or not. Subject matter I don't care about is boring to me and so I don't get myself involved in it so no posts.

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

Well, I like Caulifla. Kale was never gonna win any prizes from me because Brolli doesn't do much for me and she's just him with a fresh coat of paint. If she can somehow surpass that, that'd be nice. Please let that other form of hers from the magazine be an actual thing in the show. Other than tha...

If we ever get that time skip, yes. I think we'll see them both go super saiyan. Regarding that if.. Do you think the ending of z will be the ending of super as well? Depends on which higher ups think potentially stepping on GT's toes would hurt their bottom line. Technically they could continue Su...

Re: Why Do You Keep Watching Super?

Gokû and Vegeta. It's a boring answer, I know, but that's it. I do admit they were doing their best to make Vegeta a dull cardboard cut-out this arc, and that left me disappointed, but Gokû's still really interesting to watch and it's him that's keeping me coming back despite having little love for ...

Re: Do you think your age has anything to do with how you view Super?

My real life independent of Super has been a series of challenging times, two deaths, a brush with death of my own, and losses since around the time Super began. I do not think fondly on 2015/2016. I'm very tired right now and trying to move forward and figure out where to go from here. I do think ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

That's not good at all. That's the lowest rated episode to date. Not just that but it's also the first time we've had back to back 4% ratings (which only happened a few times as it is). The ratings for the actual Tournament have been worse than the preparation for it and people weren't too impresse...

Re: Super's added lore that you enjoy?

There's another saiyan planet! I just wish we'd get to see it.

Gokû Black, Zamasu, Gowasu. Rosé. All the anime only unique attacks he had.

Gokû and Vegeta studying together under Whis, then later spending three years training in the RoSaT. (Again I wish they'd shown more of this.)

Re: Will end of Z be retconed in Super?

I would like EoZ to be retconned, but I doubt it will. Uub is boring, I like EoZ Pan, but she gets abandoned by Gokû. Bra seemed cute, but is little more than a footnote. The only thing the kanzenban retcons is it unretires Vegeta, but what's the point if there's nothing that comes after.
