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

Vegeta has no fear of going to Hell. He fully accepted he was going to go there in the Buu arc, and still does not consider himself worthy of anything else.

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

I wouldn’t mind if Vegeta too was there to wipe out Cerealians as that would give him an even stronger connection with Granola. I disagree with this idea. Vegeta's issue, as presented in this chapter, is that he feels some measure of guilt for the atrocities committed by his people. It's an irratio...

I wonder if the Saiyans who killed Granola's race were Vegeta, Nappa, and Raditz.

It would be cool to see Nappa and Raditz again in a flashback.
Very likely not since one of the saiyans was Bardock.

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

I like the plot. I hate the presentation. There are so many contrivances and "as you know..."s going on that my writer brain is going insane. There are better ways to deliver information to viewers/readers. I was also very impressed that Toyotaro is so willing to introduce new lore that changes our ...

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

I will be nitpicking here but why does Granola look so much like a human? Like, how are we supposed to believe that this guy isn't from earth? What a silly nitpick. It’s not terribly weird that humans tend to conceptualists humanoid aliens. What you’re doing is a genre critique, and not a terribly ...

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

You’re all overestimating how effective the shock collar is. Unless that collar is as powerful as Gogeta is, the reason it kept Broly in check was because he deeply cared for his father and was obedient to him.

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

Man, I don't even know why they created the other universes concept, DBH has done far more with the other universes that the main series did. Yes, having random characters from other universes show up to fight in pointless battles is very thought-intensive and shows how creative these writers are! ...

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

Maybe I don’t pay enough attention to discourse here, but that oozaru in Granola’s nightmare has Bardock’s scar in the same place Bardock has it. If the big reveal is that Goku’s father ruined this guy’s life, that has the potential to be very hackneyed and trite. I believe that was just an easter ...

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

As for the Broly film, it was about the contrast between Goku, Vegeta, Broly and their fathers -- specifically in how their parenthood influenced the juxtaposition between Broly's imprisonment and Goku's freedom, even though Goku and Vegeta were ultimately unaware of their fathers' influence (which...

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

1. Because when Toriyama designs a silly fat man with a Santa beard, clearly “imposing” was what he had in mind. Look, this shit is subjective, but I will say there’s nothing that’s more un-Toriyama than a villain getting jacked, with an edgy aura, saying edgy lines and it not being played for a jo...

toppo's design was that of a fat man in tights .. they really improved it making it look more imposing incidentally .. it is the way it appears in games and in the heroes manga so many like it 1.

Also, interesting bit about angels being perpetually in Ultra Instinct. Their white hair made this obvious since the form was first revealed, but nice to have confirmation, I guess. This would also explain why using this technique gave Beerus such a huge edge over the other GoDs during the exhibitio...

No need to be rude. It was an honest mistake. Not being rude, my man. You were surprised nobody was talking about an uninteresting point, when there was more meaty things to talk about. What discussion can come from pointing out that there was a continuity error? It's just a fun fact/trivia. Not so...

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

Ok I know this new chapter is out and everyone is talking about Granolah and UI Goku, but we have a plot hole on our hands that I don't think anyone has mentioned until now. So in chapter 67 Goku takes Esca Back to New Namek and uses Porunga to revive everyone killed by Moro and his men. And we kno...

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

Good to see them following up on Vegeta being a good potential GoD. Hopefully it isn't that shitty thing from the anime with the edgelord aura, tattoo and muscles. Ugh. What a way to ruin Toppo's design. Anyway, I won't really comment much on this. It's off to a more interesting start than the Moro ...

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

My foolish hope is that they just do a straight adaptation, not unlike what DBKai/DBZKai purports to be. I can do without the anime muddying things up with its nonsense. I agree, but I think it's unlikely to happen without additional scenes. The (already fillerish) Earth invasion segment is practic...

I don't think things will be as different as they were before, but rather they'll add to what's in the manga, such as extended scenes, fights, flashbacks, etc...
