Re: Toyotaro needs to be let go/fired

You are aware that Toyotaro gets direct feedback and approval on his drafts from Toriyama, right? He's not just some renegade writer doing whatever he wants. If you just don't like the direction or details of how both of them are handling the manga's story, fine, but Toyotaro's committed no narrativ...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

There is? I can't recall any instance of it being without lightning. There's a few odd panels here and there, usually when the character is either drawn at an extreme distance, momentarily powered down, or something like that. You could probably count the number of such panels on one hand. Not even...

Re: Can SSJ Grade Forms 2 & 3 Be Stacked On Top Of FPSSJ?

I don't think so. I believe they get replaced with the capacity for Super Saiyan 2 instead, because the 'Grade' forms are just flawed attempts at tapping into that same reserve of "beyond Super Saiyan" power. Mastering the initial SS1 form is laying the proper groundwork to transcend it pr...

Re: The case of Tenshinhan origin ???

Tenshinhan having a "godlike" trait doesn't make him switch categories and count as an actual lower god now instead of an Earthling. Goku and Vegeta have "godlike" traits now too ever since training under Whis, but that doesn't make switch from being Saiyans to being gods.

Re: Does Androids being stronger than Super Saiyans ruin the believability of they Cell arc?

Rather than get too caught up in the exact whys and hows, I prefer to think of it along more thematic lines. Freeza was the strongest natural being. The Androids and Cell were the strongest beings born from science and technology. Majin Boo was the strongest being born from magic. Now we also have t...

Re: Do Super Saiyan Multipliers Matter

The official multipliers are still a thing, and while the folks in charge don't go to great lengths to spotlight them or write the story around them, they do still subtly acknowledge them on occasion. I know there's been a few offhand mentions in DBS, at least one where Goku went SS2 and was said to...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

In my personal opinion I think they should keep continuing even if it takes another 10 years to finish. I agree. I'd much rather see them cover the Majin Boo arc at whatever slower, steadier, accommodating pace they need, and likewise release it through whatever channels they need... than to not do...

Re: How powerful was Salza, Neiz, and Dore really?

On top of all that... I mean, it's Gohan we're talking about here.

The more of a power advantage he has over an enemy, the less likely he is to win.

Re: How powerful was Salza, Neiz, and Dore really?

The official power levels for them work fine, because they weren't really as much of a threat as they seemed to be. Daizenshuu 6 points out that "Goku definitely can't lose with the three of them as his opponents," suggesting he was playing around and trying to give them a chance to leave ...

How strong was Dabura compared to the Super Saiyans at the time? I'm trying out this experimental thing where Gohan was Super Saiyan 1 in the manga (because he was drawn as one, 'nuff said) and Super Saiyan 2 in the anime (because Toei added extra stuff to say he was) , but Dabra's power is the sam...

Re: Is Old Kaioshin's warning about abusing the DBS canon?

Putting aside "there is no canon" for now... yes, Elder Kaioshin did give a vague warning about over-using the Dragon Balls in the original manga. Although at that point he only spoke in a general "it's not right to mess with the natural order of things" sense. It wasn't until GT...

Well I don't know about anyone else, but "the length of Boo's headtacle indicates his strength" is DEFINITELY part of my head-canon now.

Another little tidbit I'm curious about, and yes, it's related to a dumb strength "debate" that refuses to die. Dabra's little bio in Daizenshuu #7's character guide says his battle power is "equal to Cell's." What Japanese term for "equal" is used there? Is it the same...

Re: 2 Brolys

Alternate skins would be the most sensible option. Broli's main fighting forms, specifically his big LSS state, are still more or less the same, and even his outfits are still mostly similar. That's how I'd expect him to show up in Xenoverse sooner or later, as a new skin/outfit for standard Broli, ...

Re: Do you prefer SSJB or SSJ4?

Like others have said, it's Super Saiyan 4 for me and it's not even close. It has so much more obvious creativity in its design, and far more meaning behind it in regard to both Goku himself and the general lore. Super Saiyan Blue could have been something special like Super Saiyan God before it, ha...
