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

This sounds like headcanon, where was it ever stated that Goku got his ideal of self-improvement from Grampa Gohan? Either way, Goku wouldnt have any interest in martial arts at all if he didnt have any natural urge for combat (which stems from his Saiyan genetics) And none of this has anything to ...

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

Jiren in both versions doesn't really interact with Goku until a 3rd into the arc. Hell, Jiren has no real connection to Goku at all, the only reason he even fights him is because Belmod told him to. Their fight is hardly the "heart" of the ToP story, and if it was then its a really weak one. Jiren...

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

King Vegeta is the entire reason why the plot of the film even happens, so more focus on him makes sense narratively, especially with how this relates to Paragus since that's who he has his grudge with. "Vegeta doesn't give a shit about his parents", which is completely irrelevant to how much of a ...

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

Characters should appear for a purpose, to advance a theme or to play off of someone else or to serve as a good setup/punchline for a joke. They shouldn't be included because of some arbitrary fan quota of appearances. More Bardock, Gine and King Vegeta add nothing: their kids flat out tell us, the...

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

. You lose nothing of substantive worth by removing the entire Ginyu Force section. Aside from the Ginyu Force being a lot of fun. And showing had bad things were that Vegeta teamed up with Gohan and Kuririn And show how much stronger Goku had gotten since his fight with Vegeta on earth. Point one ...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

And the writing for excluding Goku kept getting worse. Cell arc was the worst example of this... a heart virus was used to get Goku to be out the story. He just had a titanic battle with Freeza and somehow we have to believe a virus stops him in his tracks. Lmao. Nah, that's fine. Power doesn't mak...

Goku should have just arrived during the Freeza fight, yes. You lose nothing of substantive worth by removing the entire Ginyu Force section.

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

The worst application of it was on Namek where Goku arrives and is almost immediately taken out again until he can basically repeat the same beat, again. It's one of the factors that contributes the Ginyu Force feeling very superfluous to the story. It is filler (not in the sense that the term has ...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

. It's much better at being an ensemble show than Dragon Ball is. Dragon Ball isn’t an ensemble show. So there’s that. Goku's the clear main character but there's multiple arcs where he's not even really a participant until the very end. Toriyama tries to show off the supporting cast often and even...

Does anyone have the quote about Goku fighting intentionally at low stamina to cheat UI out?
You mean the quote where Roshi asks if Goku is trying to awaken UI when fighting the Saiyan girls fatigued?
That's the one

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

My problem is Toriyama didn't go far enough in intentionally shit posting people. Those were easily the most fun parts of the movie and they were too far from one another. I wanna see Krillin out-doing Blue Vegeta, SS Gohan getting knocked out by a stray pebble,...

Or let a series that ended its manga in 1995 and its anime in 1997 die... Silly Masenko, nothing ever ends. Not sure what you mean by this. Maybe not changing rules, but retcons to some parts (Beerus ordering to destroy Planet Vegeta, Potara one hour fusion limit etc.) And power levels were very in...

So it's delayed? Well hopefully for a good cut like Goku vs Hearts was from sometime back.

and since I don't think anyone else has said it yet.

NICE!
