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

I’m still not feeling this arc at all. It has some interesting moments, such as Vegeta’s recent interactions with the Elder Moori, and I wouldn’t define the story “bad” but something feels off to me. Maybe it’s the pacing, as the arc has been going on for a while now and it still feels like everythi...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

I wonder about this too. I was thinking that maybe Vegeta will actually just grow his Super Saiyan Blue form stronger to reach the level of power Goku achieves through UI? But then, that would make no sense because one would expect Goku’s Blue form to keep up and Vegeta has already achieved an highe...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

I think a retelling is very likely as it buys them time to get more stories ready and for pre-production. Honestly Toriyama should have already finished at least 2 stories since he wrote Broly, considering the script was finalised in June 2017. He’s basically had 2 whole years to think up new stori...

Re: Was Super Saiyan a mistake?

Realistically speaking a true martial artist like Tenshinan (who should have already tried to learn Kaioken but whatever) should be inspired by the incredible technique that is Ultra Instinct, which he saw with his own eyes during the Tournament of Power, and strive to achieve it or something simila...

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

Rumors say that the Super Namekian who got beat by Moro isn't dead, that could mean that he's gonna fuse with Piccolo and we'll have the Super Namekian God. I can't wait. I won't lie when I say that made me laugh harder than I thought I would. It reminds me of early speculation when the Universe 6 ...

Re: Was Gohan consistently training after the events of F?

I think that after the events of F Gohan at least trained himself back to physical shape. Not only did he lose his Gi in RoF, he also lost all his muscle mass, both of which he had back during the Zen Exhibition Match, even though he was still not at his best he could at least transform into a Super...

Re: Was Super Saiyan a mistake?

People always say that Super Saiyan was a mistake because it was the end for the likes of Tenshinan, Krillin and Yamcha to ever be relevant in the future, but I would say the end of those characters actually begun in the Saiyan arc (especially for Ten and Yamcha) and continued with Namek when Saiyan...

Re: Power level and weights

Power Levels also include physical strength and speed into the equation, and somebody carrying around weights of course won’t be able to move as fast and be as strong as he would be with no weights at all.

Re: Is it possible for Ultra Instinct Goku to turn Super Saiyan?

Ultra Instinct is a technique that lets the users’ body move on its own, so it should be compatible with every transformation in theory. Every instance in which Goku has achieved Ultra Instinct, so far, he was always in his normal state so I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a Super Saiyan Ultra ...

How come There's no More Toriyama/Toyo Interviews in the new Super Volumes? Either I'm wrong or did they stop doing those after the beginning of the T.O.P Saga ? I feel like this interviews helped a lot I was hoping for a new interview too. I wonder why they didn’t include one in this volume, becau...

Re: Why wasn't DB Kai a completely new animated series?

I would like to add that, as pointed out by other users, a reanimated version of Kai would have looked terrible at the time, not only due to how many shows Toei was producing at the time, but because they would have used the awful designs by Yamamuro, so I’m glad it wasn’t reanimated as I could enjo...

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

Goku and Vegeta are both very interesting characters in their own and I would never want them to be removed entirely from the story. What’s getting boring is the fact they are always together, and their dynamic is more or less always the same, which is why they absolutely need to be split apart or t...

Re: What is the darkest arc in the original run?

It seems like there’s no consensus here. I would argue that, in its own, each arc from the Piccolo Daimao one onwards has some darker elements than the others. I always considered the Androids arc (starting from Freeza coming to Earth up until Cell’s defeat) to be the “darkest”. Rationally, it proba...

Re: Is it Out of Character for Goku and Vegeta to spend 3 years in ROSAT just for a tournament?

I don’t think it was out of character, but it was such a meaningless plot point that I still don’t get what the hell went through Toriyama’s mind when he wrote that. Goku and Vegeta literally got out of the room unchanged, with only the anime having Goku mix Kaioken with Blue. That was all. It could...

Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

It is a little overrated because the awesome designs, animation and direction help elevate its script a lot. But compared to other Dragon Ball movies it’s still the best in my opinion, with Battle of Gods coming second. Of course if I were to compare the scripts I would put Battle of Gods above it a...

60 page Shintani art book is tempting. I may have to wait and see what's in that art book.

Still might go with Funi's just so I can have sub...

Re: I like Goku becoming a child again in GT

I wouldn’t have minded Goku becoming a child again if the story was actually executed well. Instead I remember that as a kid I was bored out of my mind during the hunt for the Black Star DBs arc, and I cringed really hard at how nerfed Goku was. I give GT the merit for trying something new and risky...

Anime Caulifla > Manga Caulifla Manga Kale > Anime Kale Anime Kefla >> Manga Kefla Anime wins this for me. Even if anime Kale is just a shameless Broly’s ripoff and is quite annoying, at least she still has somewhat of a character development. Manga Kale is still more interesting and a lot less anno...

Re: What's canon?

Dragon Ball Super is canonical, both the anime and manga.
Which continuity is considered the “more canonical” one is up to preference, I think.
Unfortunately this is very confusing, so I hope that in the future they will be able to have a better defined continuity.
