Re: Thoughts on Moro's character?

Boring as sin. And I'd honestly put him down there with Super 17, the Evil Dragons, Lord Slug and #13 among the worst villains in the series. He functions more as a prop rather than an actual character. As other posters have point out, he feels more like a villain from on the old Z movies -- a lot o...

Re: Goten or Tien? Who was more mistreated in Super?

Tenshinhan and it's not even close. Goten was as one note as a character could be. He was the bog standard "child-like" character with zero intrigue or nuance and his only unique quirk was being one half of a gimmick character (Gotenks). Tenshinhan had a great background, one of the best character a...

Re: Anyone surprised the original run of Dragon Ball/DBZ/GT only lasted about 10 years?

I think the best direction for the franchise following the original manga was standalone stories here and there, rather than trying to have it continue being on-going like what GT did and what Super is currently doing. I think a continuation would have worked, but they clearly needed more time to p...

Re: What would be the breaking point Super would do that would make you feel like it jumped the shark?

If Super were to steer from its core focus on high fantasy martial arts and became something like a slice of life series, that I feel would be betraying what Dragon Ball represents. Retcons, fanservice, callbacks and homage are neutral narrative concepts that can work in the hands of a very talented...

Re: Anyone surprised the original run of Dragon Ball/DBZ/GT only lasted about 10 years?

A story should only last as long as the creator feels motivated to tell more stories. By the time the Majin Boo arc went in full swing, Toriyama was burned out as you could tell from the increasingly haphazard storytelling and rough looking art. He was done with Dragon Ball and ended it at the right...

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

Random and scattered thoughts of Chapter 67: - It's a shame that Majin Boo has no memory of his time as Grand Kaioshin. It could have served as an avenue for some significant character development. What a waste. - I wish Vegeta had accompanied Goku to Namek. Just to properly bookend the whole atonin...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/18/20!)

It may be frustrating to read Dragon Ball from beginning to end and see Vegeta end up happily ever after without some kind of comeuppance, but that's just the moral framework through which Dragon Ball operates. As long as a character strives for improvement or redemption, or gradually works up to i...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/18/20!)

YES! I'm not only who think that Vegeta's Majin phase has more holes in it that Swiss cheese. I hate Majin Vegeta and when I rewatched Dragon Ball Z two years ago I went into great detail about why I didn't like it: Coming off the Cell arc, I was hoping that Vegeta would have mellowed out. And it k...

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

All I want is for Super to move past EOZ. I just feel Super is really limiting itself from a creative storytelling standpoint from having the characters frozen in time.

Random and scattered thoughts of Chapter 66: - Absolutely stellar artwork and fight choreography from start to finish. Despite all of my grievances of the Toyotaro's writing, when it comes to artstyle and panelling, he always nails it. Special mention to the pages where Ultra Instinct Goku charges t...

Re: Super or GT poll

I voted neither. I like GT and Super in bits and pieces, but overall I find their existences just... unnecessary. I mean, yeah, it's more Dragon Ball content but it doesn't really do anything to develop the cast in ways that haven't been done before and done with much more subtlety and nuance. To me...
