Re: If Super ends with ToP: Super = 1 single story arc?

There's absolutely no way that Super will end after this arc. This thing could be on life support on its last breath and TOEI would keep the machine plugged in so they can pump out whatever money is still left in it. This is their cash cow. They won't let it end unless they need to. Like Disney wit...

Re: Super Episode 91 (21 May 2017)

Oh my God SOMEONE ELSE WHO KNOWS WHAT FILLER IS! Things can be unnecessary and not be filler. Things can be padding without being filler. Filler is simply material that doesn't serve to progress a story in any measureable way. (ie. the poacher two-parter, and Yurin's existence as a character) I can...

Re: Super Episode 91 (21 May 2017)

This episode was awesome. Animation was great, plot was great, even transitions were great. Glad we're done with the filler.

I doubt Krillin and 18 actually quit, but if they do it would explain why Yamcha's been getting so much screen time.

Re: What If: Toriyama Retired?

I'm on the "he already has" train. It seems like the last DB project he was passionate about was the U6 arc, and with the Black and Universe Tourney arcs he seems to just be throwing random ideas at the writers.

I think so. It resolves and puts a bow on Vegeta's arc as a character.

Re: Team U7 Character expectations official scan

There's no reason the humans should be anywhere remotely near the cyborgs or Buu, let alone above them. I don't know why this bothers me so much, but it does. If the humans are suddenly amazing, why don't they just swap Buu out for Yamcha? If Roshi is a 4, Yamcha is definitely at least that. I'm pro...

Re: Beerus' secret about Planet Vegeta.

Vegeta or Zeno having a falling out with/killing Beerus would be a way to tidy up the story before EoZ.

Unless you want to just go with the "they ran out of food to try" route.

Re: Thoughts about the recruitment 'arc'

The Gohan and U6/U11 stuff was cool, the 17 and Krillin stuff was cool but dragged out, everything else didn't really need to be shown. Ten's dojo could've been a fun thing to show for a minute or two, but it did not need an entire episode complete with a filler villain. I think if this was going to...

Re: How come people want to rush the arc now?

For me it feels like a good chunk of these recruitment episodes have been filler. The U6 stuff is fine, but the U7 stuff feels like it's taking way longer than it should. For example, this newest episode could have been done in like 5 minutes, but they had to put in the filler villain and the mind c...

Re: So is Goku supposed to allow Roshi...

I get that it was supposed to be funny, but it just wasn't. It was really creepy. That on top of the fact that Roshi isn't even a hundreth as strong as anyone else on the team had me mad at the end of the episode. He was shoehorned into his arc for that . We could've gotten Dabura, or Gotenks, or Ya...

Re: What's everyone's thoughts on *SPOILER* ​coming back?

It better be for real. Most of the past 7 episodes, aside from the U6 stuff, has been filler, and not very great filler at that. I don't need to be teased more. The idea of Freeza having to cooperate with Goku is very interesting and in the spirit of Dragon Ball, so I hope it's true for that purpose...

Re: Who would you say are the 5 main characters in Dragon Ball?

Goku Gohan - We see his struggles growing up as a half-Saiyan hybrid, and he's integral to the plot/originally intended to replace Goku as protagonist. Vegeta - Goku's rival, and has the most character development in the series. Krillin - Goku's best friend, and is important in just about every arc ...

He doesn't even need the androids, does he? If he just injures and heals himself over and over and over, he would be actually unstoppable. Maybe too fast for Zeno to even know to erase.

Re: Question on which home media releases to buy for an "Authentic" Dub experience.

If by "Authentic" you mean the experience people watching DBZ on TV had, your best bet would probably be the edited VHS tapes. They have the "Stand by for Dragon Ball Z" intro and a bunch of commercials. If that's not feasible for you, the single DVDs. For the Ocean stuff, you pr...

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

I'm in love with the fact that 17 works to preserve wildlife. It works with what we know about him during his road-tripping, and maybe it indicates that a bit of 16's sentimentality towards animals rubbed off on him. It's good writing, I think. 17 should be able to beat the poachers with little effo...

Mr. Savage would be easy on the voice actors and would have been a pun/connection with Randy Savage. I like that alternative best.

Honestly, I don't care either way. "Bulla" is better because in all honesty, what person with a functioning brain knowingly names their child Bra? On the other hand, "Bra" is more accurate and I (usually) use whatever names are in the manga once I've seen them appear in the mang...
