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

I see people derogatorily comparing a hypothetical fight between the Earth fighters and Moro's scouting party to Resurrection F and how insubstantial the fight between Gohan and co. and Freeza's army was, and while it's probably foolhardy to argue for or against a fight that hasn't happened yet and ...

Re: Gohan vs. Dyspo or Gohan vs. Kefla: Who was the better final opponent for Gohan in the ToP?

Of the two, Kefla by far. The anime's depiction of Dyspo as one of Universe 11's big three was all tell and no show; he was simply never an intimidating presence, nor an effective foil for Gohan. He was, to his very end, a nothing character. With Kefla, there was at least promise in the idea of her,...

Re: Do you think Super would have benefited by holding off on Super Saiyan Blue?

Honestly Blue should have never happened and they should have kept God as the strongest form until Ultra Instinct. Can't second this enough. Every single story beat that involves Blue could be substituted for God with practically zero issue. Its only function in its debut was to establish Goku and ...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I assume this was done as a compromise to satiate the requests for young Goku from the original Dragon Ball... so either ArcSys aren't allowing characters who can't fly, or Bandai Namco believe that GT's brand recognition is stronger than Dragon Ball's. The former is a poor excuse - other video game...

Re: The biasness against Toei is unreal!

I feel like in any circle that isn't the Dragon Ball fandom, blaming the quality of the final product of a movie/show on the person who wrote its treatment is a completely baffling thing to do. I'll admit to finding Toei's initial concept of a larger-than-life, justice-loving Jiren a lot more entert...

Re: About Gohan in the TOP

(to borrow your parlance - *snip*) Yup, yup and double yup. Honestly, I don't blame you forgetting about the dangling threads from Gohan's setup during the recruitment material. With how many other characters of note from that section of the arc got eliminated so unceremoniously - Kuririn, Nigrissh...

Re: About Gohan in the TOP

Super hasn't been about Gohan at all. Since Battle of Gods, this has pretty transparently been a story about Goku, Vegeta, and Beerus. As such, the Tournament of Power was always going to be either another step along, or the culmination of, Goku and Vegeta's rivalry with Beerus and tutelage under W...

Re: Has Vegeta been a good character as of recently? I think not.

After absolutely loving his characterisation for the first 67 episodes of the show, this arc has made Vegeta near-intolerable to me. At this juncture it feels like neither Toriyama or the week-to-week writers have anything interesting for him to do. Which, y'know, would be fine - he's had four arcs ...

Fanfics I wrote when I was 7

Hello! Firstly, some context. Last summer I got a new computer, and only recently got the disk space to move over all the files from my old one. With every new PC upgrade I move my old documents folder into my new one, which always leads to me digging through the endless pit of documents folders to ...

Re: Does anyone wish the "red" form of SSG never existed?

Super Saiyan God is probably my favourite transformation in the whole series. The name alone bares so much weight; the increasing complexity in design and widening gaps in power were such a notorious aspect of the later Super Saiyan forms, and now we have a new one? And it's a "God"? Throughout the ...

Re: Universe 6 tournament combatants?

I mean, from the outset Universe 7 is almost definitely going to be represented by either the five Saiyans OR you have the kids fused, with Piccolo being the fifth fighter. It's going to be one or the other. Almost definitely. BUT! But. If we're talking ideal choices? ...well, I mean, okay, Goku and...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

As it stands, I don't find the simplicity of this design comparable to Super Saiyan God's or Golden Freeza's, so the notion that people are hypocrites for liking those but not this is a bit baffling to me. Super Saiyan God's simplicity worked because it undermined the deific nature of the title. Gol...
