Does this Guide say no one before Beers is FTL? [No]

Postby MisterGuyMan » Thu Dec 03, 2015 4:04 pm

Not sure if this has been discussed but I couldn't find it when I searched.

I saw this surfing the web today: https://plus.google.com/+Lonewolf3002-T ... CERqkg8N6E
It talks about the Dragonball Super Start Guide
Image

The blog says that the Dragonball Super Start Guide has the following excerpt:
Image
"The emergence of Beerus ! First character Z- fighters which can exceed the speed of light are met !"

Can anyone confirm either what that says or even how canon this is?

I think it was just a statement was just made for hyperbole. Just like how whenever there was a new villain introduced in the old DBZ movies, Toei would hype them up as "the strongest, fastest and most formidable foe yet" yadda, yadda, yadda.

I'll wait for the real translation. Even if this is true I ain't that surprised.

Well he was able to fly to another planet without taking years.

I mean no one before Beerus was FTL I could believe. Beerus' feats in Super are enough to classify him really high as he and Champa can casually fly FTL and destroy entire planets in a single blow. Then there's the universe thing which doesn't make sense entirely.

Not surprised. As always until Herms or someone on Kanzenshuu confirms something, then it might as well be taken with a grain of salt til we get an answer.

Whenever it mentions anything about the speed of light or the ability to destroy certain celestial objects, you can be more than 99,99% sure that it's fake.

Yep, though there are actually a few cases destruction wise where it's not made up and in a guidebook. No speed feats mentioned I think, but a couple DC feats have been mentioned in say the Daizenshuu.

To top it off, the sentences that mention Beerus aren't even coherent Japanese. Instead of the relevant word for "first", it uses a term that means the first letter in a word. It was obviously done via Google translate.

Thanks. Felt a little fishy if a guide from the summer made such a comment without getting picked up until now. I try not to judge either way on authenticity until I double check here.

Herms is the best.

OH MY GOD. I don't know which scenario is worse. Either this is just trolling or it was an honest mistake of copy-pasting the wrong things together.

Wow... that's just sad. To go to that much effort just to downplay an anime series.

Obviously the vibrator thing makes it even more believable that this is legit Dragon Ball.

Lonewolf3002 (the google plus blog of whom is where this post was made) is a notorious Superman fanboy who always participates in the debates of Goku Vs Superman with the intent to lowball Goku. He once even said that the boulders that Goku pushed at the start of dragonball were made of pumice (but even if it was pumice the boulder was much heavier than 40 tons anyway). I am not surprised that either him or one of the other Superman fanboys populating his blog fabricated this "guidebook note".

To be honest, it's dissapointing to see someone use Google Translate and put it in between a vibrator review just to prove he's right. It's sad to see a person willing to do that much for such a trivial goal.
