Re: Does anyone find post-Trunks Bulma annoying?

Her character has been pretty consistent throughout the various arcs and series. And actually, I think she's the only major character that Super hasn't ruined yet.

Re: Forget about Gohan, what remains are only memories

It really is best to forget about Gohan, indeed. This last episode confirmed that once and for all. He gets zero worthwhile dialogue and doesn't even contribute anything entertaining. All he is now is an average goofy, doting father character. Total waste and it would probably be best if he just doe...

Re: What did you think of the Champa arc?

Most of my criticisms have already been stated so I'll just say I'd rate it 5.5/10. I really enjoyed episodes 28-30 and most of the other build up, but I thought the tournament itself was very poor. Multiple episodes of Vegeta fighting some Mega Man boss character and then coaching some random kid-t...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

It has to be spelled "Cabe", "Cabbe" or "Cabbay" to accurately convey the pronunciation in English. It can't be "Cabba" and retain the long vowel "a" sound at the end of the word. "Cabbe" makes the most sense. It's still close enough to the original word to get the naming pun by looking at it.

Re: Dragon Ball Super OP single announced!

Anyone know how fluent in English the artist is? Anywhere close to Horikawa's level? I don't think he speaks it, but he sings really well in English. Check out "Bulb" by The Yellow Monkey. He didn't write the lyrics for "Chozetzu Dynamic" so he wouldn't be the one to translate it anyway. Hopefully,...

Re: Who is your least favorite Dragon Ball composer?

I've never heard any of the dub soundtracks post-Faulconer so I guess I can't comment on this as a whole. But from what I know, Sumitomo's work is the worst by far. Six episodes into Super and there hasn't been a single memorable track aside from maybe Beerus' cor anglais theme because the bloody th...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

Yeah, it's strange but at the same time there's no mention of any kind of Battle Royal between Beers and everyone else. Besides, the summary begins with describing the Vegeta-Bulma stuff and we know there's no way for it to take even half an episode. My bet would be that episode 7 ends with Beers s...

Re: Anyone else not give a shit about the canon?

Yeah, I don't really get the fascination with this subject. DB isn't like UC Gundam with dozens of spinoffs and sidestories to consider. It used to be fun to discuss which of the 13 movies could logically fit in with the events shown in the original story, but beyond that...? The anime TV series jus...

Re: Time for a New Narrator for "Super"?

Nah. No way. As a narrator, he still sounds fine to me. He still sounds like the familiar narrator we've always had, just older. I don't think any potential benefits of getting an exciting new narrator would trump the nostalgia, familiarity and authenticity we get from hearing Yanami. The Kaio role,...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

In a way, we should enjoy the fact that they're not spoiling anything. For sure. They're doing the right thing. I don't think revealing anything more would create more interest than there is. With a movie, you kind of have to tell people what it's about and that requires more details to be shown. B...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

I'll repeat this again, why do people assume Goku can't simply go plain old SSJ? Is he mandatorily required to draw god level powers to transform? Exactly. And based on his outfit, it surely doesn't look like he's in the midst of a serious battle that would require him to go full power. Nothing sho...

Yeah, anime industry doesn't work like that and Dragon Ball is not special. It kinda is. But yea, I doubt Toei is planning for anything more than 26 episodes or so from the get-go. They may decide to do more (not as in a second season, but just continuing to push forth episodes) depending on views ...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

100 episodes for an original (not based on existing manga) series? Yeah...I don't see that happening. And it probably wouldn't be very good either. There's always the possibility for a continuation after a season off, but I expect they only have a 26 episode initial run planned.

Re: Trans/Gay/Bi-sexual villians

I just thought of a way a trans character might be/might have been able to fit into the context of Dragon Ball. It would have been something early on back when Goku still had difficulty determining sex. In that context, Goku would consider a transgender person to be quite fascinating. And it's abou...

Uh.... no.... if that were the case, then why were Bulma and Yamucha stated to be a couple?

Do you think it's time Toriyama became more progressive and introduce villains such as these. I remember in Rurouni Kenshin one of the members of the Jupen Gatina looked female but was in fact a male who was a cross dresser. Why can't we have something like this in DB ? Similarly, YES we got Genera...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

Not sure why anyone would expect more violence. It's airing in the same timeslot as Kai and you've seen what they've done with Kai. The movies have been tame as well so I don't even think that makes any difference at this point.

Re: Fusions Revisited in Dragon Ball Super

Gotenks is guaranteed and I think there's a pretty good chance we'll see SSG Gogeta. With the whole "teamwork" thing going on between the two and Goku no longer being portrayed as on a level above Vegeta, it seems like an obvious development at some point. Probably just depends on if there is a seri...
