I'm of such mixed thoughts about the filters. I like the line art thickening machine, but I'm not a fan of the yellow tint on the colors - makes me think of Kai's green tint. The crushed black I feel could be done better by simply dropping Yamamuro's shading scheme. I saw a good example of it somewhere on Ajay's feed several days back.

I prefer spelling it Zamasu and Gowasu for the same reason - they're literally Japanese words like desu.

I'm also hoping they have something to cut away to so the animation doesn't come in danger of collapsing.

Also also worried about the theory of The Dragon Ball Room appealing to the loudest forces with the whole Brolli thing and the color scheme changing. None of that stuff was really my deal (I'd be somewhere else if it was). I want to hope they'll not totally ditch their home fanbase in Japan and what they like to instead pander solely to Funi's base in the U.S. If they're going to look internationally, please let them look at other countries too! Mexico, Canada, Europe, etc.

I like both the new color palette and the lines so basically I disagree 8) Doesn't matter if it's trying too hard, it simply works. The animation finally looks like it has at least a little bit of soul, depth, "weight" and boldness. And in this way yes it does make people think "it looks like cells!" because well, cells had all this soul/depth etc.

I'm glad Herms weighed in on the "Kaioshin vs. Hakaishin" thing. It'd been bothering me recently that I didn't really have any defensible reason for why I use "God of Destruction," but still go to "Kaioshin," "Kaio," "Zeno," or even "Kame-Sennin" when they have perfectly accurate, if somewhat cumbersome, translations.

"Kaioshin is at least a term Toriyama made up" is a little flimsy, but I'll take it!

Now if I could just marry up my preference for representing the full "ou" a la Hepburn romanization with the greater fandom recognition for Kunrei romanization, which I end up going to for proper nouns in Dragon Ball just out of convenience.

I'm 100% behind keeping "Zamasu" as opposed to "Zamas," especially since his name is based on a verb. If the greater internet can wrap its head around "desu," it can certainly handle the unstressed ending of this particular character's name.

You guys forgot to mention that Viz still uses Hercule! Why do they still use it!

The filter looks bad on the Supreme Kaioshin realm but it looks fine when we got to the tournament, so it should be fine. As for Dragon Rooms influence, it defintely seems that way they started in June I believe so they probably couldn't affect the Trunks arc much but this two month break and now all these suspicious things and a new pair of directors I think it is way to coincidental.
