Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Well the translations are out of the new chapter 42. I gotta say that I loved that Freeza and #17 planned the entire situation with #17 hiding because nobody can sense his ki. This also makes a bit sense of Grand Priest, who in the anime and manga, announced that #17 was gone. It's also awesome tha...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Power levels aren't gonna give you immunity to technology that affects the nervous system. Goku and Vegeta aren't above getting caught off-guard or even outsped by an elite patrolman in their base forms. No idea why this needs to be said. Because people don't understand that power scaling is only d...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Talking about some spoilers confirmed.The way King Vegeta tried to get rid of Broly in the original Movie is much more logical. In the new Movie he just orders for Broly to be sent to a dangerous planet expecting he doesn't survive and lets Paragus go after him, instead of trying to get rid of them...

Re: Anyone Miss When the Arcs Used to Connect Swiftly?

I like the down time between the arcs. It gives the story more variety. I don't, because the arc just end up coming out of no where, with villains just randomly showing up or that Goku just gets bored and wants to fight. As opposed to the older arcs with a story or characterization reason to do the...

Re: Toyotaro needs to be let go/fired

Then there just is the inevitable where a series like DB that is mostly made up of anime casuals, you're going to have a lot of surface-thinking where momentary stimulation and memes become how promotion is decided among the majority. Not actual assessment; but people deemed as "hating" or "too neg...

Re: Toyotaro needs to be let go/fired

snip Honestly, God Vegeta looks god awful (no pun intended) And you kinda grasped what I think about Toyo's anatomy. It's too much realistic for something like Dragon Ball, while their faces are completely cartoonish And Evil Boo isn't a fair example, his body is distorted but that's because Toriya...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

If/when there's a new show I would love to see something akin to the look of this new movie. Obviously, I know it can't be the same level of quality as the movie but I feel like it's time for DB to move past the Super style & onto it's next evolution whether that's character design, color palate, o...

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

Roshi's point is complete bullshit because Jiren STILL beat him with raw power and speed. Which should be expected. The scaling in this scene isnt broken, contrary to what people claimed. For all Roshi's godlike skill, once Jiren decided that he had enough all he did was raise his stats.lol So it's...

You claim goku having ssj4 makes up for him being turned into child which did regress his character as well because he started acting like a kid in episode 7 specifically and you ignore the fact that super saiyan 4 was revealed in episode 34 when he was turned into a kid in episode 1 nearly 33 epis...

Eastern forums are just as upset. Where is your proof of this? Toyotaro is an employee. And hes doing a terrible job. 90% of the fan base have not been happy with his work since late Zamasu arc. There isnt much storyline to judge that on and most of the key events in the TOP arc are basically the s...

Re: Toyotaro needs to be let go/fired

*snip* There's a lot of truth to that, but I think a bigger part of the problem was the decision to have two different versions of the same story in the first place. Tribalism tends to be a natural occurrence in larger fanbases, and it's exacerbated in situations like this on both sides. That's not...

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

Why is it any time the manga is criticized someone always has to go to 'but the anime'. We're not talking about the anime. There is an entire thread comparing the anime to manga, go there. Because people tend to base their complaints on the manga, in accordance to the anime, but then often gloss ov...

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

I honestly think people are overreacting and missing the point of the scene. Why didn't Roshi show this level of resolve and ability during any arc in Dragonball Z? vs Raditz would have been a great time. Or are we to understand that Roshi has been training all this time and though power-level wise ...

Re: So how cool would it be if Broly “unlocks” his SSJ transformations within the movie?

I would actually like to see that. It would be like a cool reverse of what the series has for what we expect from the main characters. It would visually show him "learning" as he fights and his notorious "ki raising" thing he is known for, or if he is pushed to a corner, he transforms. What I hope f...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

I agree. One thing I loathe about Super (and modern stuff like TFC's intros) is the use of CG textures for backgrounds and CG elements. It clashes horribly and feels very UN-Dragon Ball to me, especially if you think back to the awesome painted backgrounds that were in use since the start. I absolu...

ANYWAYS...(I realize I'm getting a bit off topic) the style of this new movie is something I've been wanting to see for awhile now. Something that looks a little more traditional in terms of animation while also bringing in someone with a bit of a new take while not also being a drastic departure. ...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

I appreciate that there's more emphasis on non-Legendary Broly this time, as I've gotten rather sick on seeing the same urine-green-haired look from over the years, a form where he exhibits absolutely no character. You do realize he was a mind puppet until he transforms? When he does transform he a...

Would you guys like it if Toriyama boards some parts of the movies, like gags and some fights?

Re: How do you feel about Freeza being an ally?

As a chronic backstabber maybe, but not as an ally. If anything either Freeza fight him should be kept separate from Goku & Vegeta, or he is just in the background trying to get rid of them all from behind the scenes. I still want Freeza to be a threat, maybe an unpredictable one now, or work with t...

Re: Disregarding quality, are you happy Super existed

The worst part about Super to me is, the fact that its not a genuine sequel to Z. It was trying to correct the faults GT had intentionally, is more like Toei just found out DB is popular again after ROF and they rushed to get in on the hype, but had nothing really to contribute to the story, but jus...
