Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

People actually thought this chapter proved Beerus > the rest? He clearly CAN'T finish Moro in a heartbeat, if that were the case he'd have done it before going to see the GP. The previous chapter was already pretty clear about how UI and Moro compare to Broly, Jiren, Zamasu There's a reason why we...

Re: Read this Gohan arc take on reddit. Whats your take on this?

but all the moments OP described where gohan did pretty well were "meaningless death matches", it's only against cell that he suddenly turns into a vegan hippy pacifist until a robot he never met tells him "hey gohan i like birds" and then dies, triggering gohan to go into school shooter mode and t...

Re: Super or GT poll

Toriyama bullshit his way through 90% of the DB with no plan. There are 2 things worth taking into account. 1- Toriyama did plan things out, such as planning Namek while writing the 23rd Tenkaichi arc, or going into the Buu arc knowing it would be the final one. 2- Although he didn't plan out as mu...

Re: Super or GT poll

Toriyama bullshit his way through 90% of the DB with no plan. Which is fine when he's the guy doing the writing and art himself on a consistent basis. It's not a very desirable quality for the kind of role he had on Super where he went Stan Lee.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Beerus was never weaker than him. Fans just assumed that, using their own headcanon. That’s all. Nowhere has it ever been officially stated that MUI Goku surpasses Beerus.. Someone didn't watch 110 then. I did.. Couldn’t find it.. Perhaps you need to watch it again. https://i.imgur.com/SGVz0Cs.jpg ...

If you see the spoilers of chapter #66, you will figure out that there are some characters that feel even more overpowered. Did they really retcon Beerus > UI? Beerus was never weaker than him.

Does anyone else feel Goku has gotten a little too overpowered with MUI?

Re: To those who think Goku doesn’t care about Chi Chi, why didn’t he offer her to the old Kaioshin?

Goku obviously cares, though the second time he tries to make the deal he does add that Chi-Chi will kill him if he does that to her.

Re: Super Saiyan Rosé - The Anime's interpretation (Compared to the Manga's)

Black is a God occupying Goku's body, so, if he went Super Saiyan he'd naturally use God ki resulting in an altered SS. This is in line with SSGSS being just SS with a different ki source/power running through it.

Beerus has already been Roshi'd so there's no need for a rematch.

Re: Should fans write for official products ?

This would apply to all IP. Technological advances, medical advances and entertainment/art advances--all advancements belong to the people. So if you created or worked hard for something, someone who just sits around has the right to share the profits with you ? It's easy to be entitled to the prof...

Re: Should fans write for official products ?

Fans getting to officially write a product is is just like anything, it can be good, bad or anything in-between. Dragon Ball is pretty consistently shit at it save a few jokes from the Yamcha manga.

Re: Dragon Ball Lore

No one was talking about the appeal of the character, we're saying that a backstory for the important characters is essential for the story itself in general (this is storytelling 101). Nobody here ever said that a detailed backstory is needed for a character to liked. And yet Dragon Ball breaks th...

Re: Dragon Ball Lore

It negates the point that a backstory is essential. What is far more essential is what the character wants and what they are willing to do to get it. Precisely. Goku worked as a protagonist with a single sentence of backstory total for six arcs which amounts to nearly half of the original run conte...

Jiren is the only one who can fight (and beat) them unless Goku gets UI out again. All the rest? Useless.

Re: Dragon Ball Lore

I think backstory can be fun. I enjoy some flashbacks but backstory isn't nearly as essential as story. Freeza's backstory with the Saiyans and Vegeta is interesting, but that's not the primary reason he's so well remembered or why it feels so good when he gets what was coming to him. He spends mos...

Re: Dragon Ball Lore

Speaking of fantasy writers and how they dealt with world-building, Sapkowski is a fun example of one as he never drew or even thought about the geography of the Witcherverse' map. Sure, he'd say "Vizima is south of Kovir" and use statements like "it takes x amount days or weeks to get someplace" bu...
