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

... Right... Doesn't basically every critical discussion here end up going more or less the same way, just people's unsubstantiated opinions on what they think is good or bad? There's a lot of context in my post where I explain my point. But let me distill it. Binary discussions that come down to "...

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

I mean... I know this forum in general is primarily concerned with discussion of the storylines and so on, but it's fair to want to discuss the art as well, as in-depth as anyone wants That's why I specified it to my interests. Most people don't engage with art on a sophisticated level (and that's ...

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

I think Toyotaro gets too much flack for his anatomy issues. He's drawing a cartoon, not an anatomy textbook. There are plenty of issues you can nitpick in the DBS manga (and the original manga), but most of them are not distracting unless you're looking for them. Often, the neck issues are how Toy...

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

It's an interesting thought. I never looked at it that way. I can definitely see your post justified the most where Perfect Cell loses his marbles when he finds out there is a a stronger being. He wanted to flaunt his vanity because he was perfect. Sorry, I tend to ramble when I see a point that re...

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

If I remember correctly, Cell was looking for a challenger worthy of his power. The interesting thing about Perfect Cell to me is that this isn’t really his character, or at least not all there is to it. Perfect Cell is essentially totally different from the previous 2 forms (I’ll get into the diff...

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

Hi All, Longtime viewer/reader of this forum but finally registered. Welcome. Like many here I would LOVE to see Gohan/Piccolo and the other Z Fighters step up and contribute to a win, instead of the Goku & Vegeta show, but still have really enjoyed how they've all been involved lately. I think if ...

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

Okay, but what does being saved because they couldn't do it themselves teach any of the cast? What's the point of this when the arc devoted so much time to Goku and Vegeta's individual growths? Wouldn't this undercut all that and render the entire arc pointless because this was always an option? Mo...

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

So, exactly what happened in the Boo arc with Gohan, Goten and Trunks. No. The Buu Arc balanced an entire cast of characters, made all of those characters have substantial growth and then concluded the series with the wrap-up of the character arc of "Z"'s most compelling character in Vegeta. World'...

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

What if Whis and Merus orchestrated this so that Moro could absorb Merus' power? Moro copies Merus' power, which would technically give him an Angel's powerset(and the rules to go along with it.) So once Moro uses his newfound Angel power, he is in violation of the Angel code, and Daishinkan has hi...

I get it. The point is this is supposed to be bleak and their darkest hour. I get it already. But how much longer is this going to keep going? It's been this way for months. For months we've seen that Moro is stronger than everyone and is toying with them, and that everyone is out of their depth wit...

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

This would be OK if it wasn't Freeza, one of the franchise's greatest villains. If you want a story where the villain isn't that big of a threat, then introduce someone new who fits that idea, not Freeza. The other issue is that it was following BOG. If you're going to follow up such a great movie,...

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

Resurrection F is what I prefer Super to be, actually. Only Toriyama would make a dragonball story where the main bad guy is treated as a complete joke by EVERY character involved because they know Goku and Vegeta are leagues beyond him. Then there's the fact that Beerus and Whis are there too and c...

Ik this is DragonBall, but I must say that I'm glad we haven't received any sequel trilogy level of disasters for DB..... Yet... TLJ and TROS (okay TFA was always mediocre for me even as a copy of ANH) are just on a level of bad on their own. I suppose people just don't know what 'bad' or 'good' tr...

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

People tend to place too much emphasis on things being new, rather than things being well-executed. I know that I prefer new experiences to revisiting old ones, hence why I hate Disney's Star Wars, or Marvel movies. But in this overemphasis of "new" we tend to ignore the well-constructed, and well-e...

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

Toriyama ? he's the main one holding this franchise back. As far as I can see, his contribution should've ended with BOG. Complete nonsense. Dragonball had been without Toriyama since the manga ended and until Battle of Gods. During that time, all they were able to create is derivative drivel and t...

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

I think Dragonball* needs to take a cue from DC* and stop trying to make Goku’s dad super special. Note 1: lets be honest here, this larger franchise is shallow as fuck and has absolutely no artistic integrity. Toriyama wont rein them in, and Shueisha only cares about the bottom line. Note 2: specif...

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

So this story beat has already occurred. What makes this an asspull is the fact there was no indication Moro could just eat people to absorb them. You're, again, arguing different points than the thing you quoted. It doesn't matter if it resembles what happened previously. What matters is the train...
