Write the conversation you want to be having instead of a nothing-post angry about people discussing news less than twelve hours old. Nothing is ever keeping a topic locked to one particular conversation.

Re: What’s everyone’s opinion on how the manga has so far handled the Universe Survival arc compared to the anime?

I understand its not the point of the arc, but what is the reason for introducing more than 80 characters (including the GoDs, etc. of each universe) for? To present an obstacle for the protagonists, as I said. The minor fighters aren't needed for characterization purposes, they're needed to contri...

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

I'm 50/50 on it. Of all of Dragon Ball 's forays with raunchy humor, Bulma trading on her sexuality bothers me the least. She's usually offering something pretty tame, it fits her personality, and she's a pretty multi-faceted character outside of it. It's also never used to titillate the actual audi...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Count one more in for the sentiments above: While Toyotaro's paneling is weak compared to Toriyama's, it's hardly a knock comparing him to an absolute master of the craft. I do find his art style pleasing, and of the high-profile Dragon Ball doujinshi authors, with the possible exception of the much...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Threaa

I know I’m a little late to comment on chapter 35, but I have to say, I don’t think the way the tournament has been progressing in the manga so far is really any better than it how it went in the anime around this point. For all the complaints about how U7 and U6 hogged up most of the eliminations,...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Hell, even that entire idea doesn't make any sense, because by the time we're introduced to Zamasu, his base form is already capable of owning SS2 Trunks easily, which really shouldn't happen if Zenkai's don't work on Goku and Vegeta at all. The manga went out of its way to explain that Black's pow...

Re: Why hasn't Toriyama paid his taxes yet?

Anyone who knows how society works knows that unless the wealthy carry the tax burden the working class will suffer and society eill collapse. That's a somewhat perverse view of how a society should function. It's not up to a selected few to pay taxes for everyone. If taxes are to exist (and they d...

Re: Is Goku a hero in Super?

He's the same Toriyama protagonist we have in almost all his stories: a largely selfish person who, though their own drive and a basically good-natured outlook toward the world, manages to draw others toward them and provide momentum for some measure of good. It's the same thing every time (not that...

Re: Do you prefer “human” or “mortal” for the non-deities?

"Ningen" can translate as the specific "human"... and also the more general "person/people." It doesn't necessarily have the connotations that the English word "human" has -- as in, referring to our species specifically. When someone says "humans" i...

Re: How do you think the first two arcs of Super would have been received without the movies?

It’s impossible to answer this thoughtfully without acknowledging that, without the movies, there’s no way those episodes would have come out the way they did, or within the timeframe they did. You’re asking us to imagine the reception for a very poor batch of episodes while removing the key factor ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Yeah I shared a similar idea in a discord chat a while ago. I thought it would've been interesting to see Hit, a 1000 year old assassin, be pushed to his limits to use his most fatal techniques on such a fearsome foe. Jiren tanking his assassination attempt could lead to Jiren to start taking the t...

Re: Super's Manga vs Super's Anime Discussion

It makes less sense because Freeza has already fucked over his team, and some of the main cast are fully aware of it. If the endgame is that Freeza is brought back to life because of how well he performed in Universe 7, then it's not going to feel earned because he already unnecessarily crippled hi...

Re: I believe Whis is the new favorite character of Akira

I think it would be safe to say that Toriyama has great fun with anything involving Beerus, Whis and Freeza, among the contemporary Dragon Ball cast.

That's episode 16. Episode 15 is the Mr. Satan episode.

Re: What, IYO, is Super's greatest achievement and detriment in its whole run.

Greatest achievements: The destruction of Future Trunks' timeline (maybe its sole iconic scene prior to the finale), bringing Freeza back permanently and making him a reluctant ally. I couldn't have predicted either at the beginning of the series, and they're pure Toriyama. Just thinking about them...
