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

It's not because a story has been going on for very long and is partially working on nostalgia, automatically no additional good content can be made. Those reasons that are always put up are no exact science either. It's something personal and subjective. This might be your opinion, as you are enti...

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

They already pressured him for Broly’s movie as they sent him many ideas until he decided to go with Broly. They have to because the serie must go forward and if Toriyama is out of ideas they pitch him some until he writes something. The series doesn't HAVE to move forward. It could end rather than...

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

Which I already stated in the next reply. I don't equate popularity with nostalgia, not in this case at least. There's not enough of the old Broly in the new one to say they were banking on nostalgia. Same thing with Minus Bardock, even though here the old design is almost intact- he just feels so ...

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

While what he did with Broly might not be innovative, the fact that he practically rewrote his character to the point only the barest hint of the original remained kinda speaks against the nostalgia aspect. Toriyama flatout said Broly's popularity in Japan and overseas as a reason why his editor su...

Re: Most well developed characters in the franchise?

Same reason Batman repeatedly spares Joker. Goku may not have flat out announced he has a conscious code against killing, but he clearly has a principle of sorts by temperament. We've already discussed the differences between them. Most versions of Batman have a strict moral code against killing wh...

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

I think TOEI are overly secretive about things in general and very cryptic. The positive side is that the indication came from someone who is very near to TOEI. But i mean, this may be indicating 'something', but it's still very very vague. If they are still working on a new tv anime or a movie per...

Re: Most well developed characters in the franchise?

Goku keeps sparing him because he wants to keep fighting him, obviously. It must not have been that obvious because I don't remember Goku ever saying that :P . On Namek, Goku was willing to spare Freeza as long as he didn't show his face again. When he met Trunks, Goku told Trunks that he should've...

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

Rummshi learned of Zamasu's actions in the manga. He laments how the Destroyer of another universe had to step in to stop him and worries that the meeting organized by the Grand Priest might be about Zamasu. That was good of Toyotaro for at least having someone bring up Zamasu. Rummshi should know ...

Re: Most well developed characters in the franchise?

Goku may not have a set in stone code, but he's always been reluctant to kill, at least in his adult life. He tried to spare Frieza on Namek, so it's not really out of character for Goku to repeatedly spare him. I'm not sure what's the point of sparing Freeza after his third attempt at revenge. If ...

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

Again, my point is that there is no status quo change between arcs happening. Give someone Super, tell them a "Fun piece of trivia" that there are actually two Zenos when the first one shows up in the U6 arc, then skip over the Black arc, and your friend will have missed nothing. Because ultimately...

Re: Most well developed characters in the franchise?

Freeza had such great development. They turned him from one of the best pop culture villains ever and turned him into a Saturday Morning Cartoon villain. So he's Japanese Joker. Joker usually lives because Batman has a code against murder which the Z fighters have no problem with. In DB, the reason...

Re: The most perfect continuation of Dragon Ball manga (DB&DBZ anime)

Vegeta's entire arc was letting go of that insecurity and finally admitting Goku was better without it wounding his pride. Now the end to his story is fighting him to the death? That's some severe thematic dissonance. Age 801 Goku goes missing: realizing his death is imminent and wanting to settle ...

Re: The most perfect continuation of Dragon Ball manga (DB&DBZ anime)

I don't like them being equals. It's not Goku and Vegeta's story. If it's implied they died together in a fight, that undercuts the point of Vegeta's arc. It seems even odder that so much thematic importance be placed on a character not introduced until 1/3 of the way through the story. I agree Veg...

Re: The most perfect continuation of Dragon Ball manga (DB&DBZ anime)

If you can accept that in the original manga the events of Dragon Ball Super happened, I'm pretty sure you can accept that Dragon Ball Super also happened in Dragon Ball Online. The lack of mention doesn't mean something it's not there. Also because this is purely an out-universe issue. Well I don'...

Re: The most perfect continuation of Dragon Ball manga (DB&DBZ anime)

The best sequel of Dragon Ball is Dragon Ball Online. I wouldn't change anything about it, but I'd like to add to it concepts from I can't say I'm in favor of any of the three sequels but what I did like about Online is that nothing eventful happened to Goku between the Buu saga and his (last) deat...

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

Juju Kaisen is going to be made by TOHO (Godzilla etc), which is not the same as TOEI. It might be the case Kitaro will get replaced by still another anime made by TOEI, assuming TOEI wants to retain its classic one hour-block in the morning with One Piece.

Am I the only one that hopes they don't go the movie route. Movies are all style and no substance. Like the recent Broly one, it was visually stunning, sure, but we missed out on a lot of cool things like Raditz and Vegeta fighting and the fight that led to Bardock getting roughed up like that.

You're happy about it? I'm personally only looking forward to Dragonball continuing as movies. Actually I prefer it ends but if they feel the need to continue until it stops making money then I would choose a movie every few years over an anime. Toriyama's outlines apparently aren't very detailed s...

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

If Goku ends up mastering UI for real in the current manga arc, then it would be weird not to adapt it. And if they are working on the next movie, then does it mean the manga’s story will be completely different due to the events of the GP arc? Then why would they even let Toyotaro draw a new story...

For a while, I was bullied mercilessly for no reason other than I was small and shy.
