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

Even if I prefer the anime and consider it to have prevalance over the manga due to its popularity, representation in videogames and merchandise, I would be okay if they outright said that, at least so far, the manga’s version of Super is the actual canonical one. But this isn’t the case and that Sh...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I wonder if maybe the next movie is set on Planet Sadala, with Vegeta having a major role and that’s why Horikawa is hyping it up. Toei/Shueisha and the DB Room for sure must know that there’s a high demand for Sadala and Yamoshi to be shown, so they may have pressured Toriyama into writing somethi...

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

So Goku can survive without eating? I thought he was referring about not eating at that moment, not for his whole stay in the chamber. But if he really stops eating it will be interesting to see. Will he lose weight and muscle mass, have some temporary mental side effects? His biology as a Saiyan m...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Just wait for the official announcement of whatever is next. It seems like this announcement is finally arriving soon. Now it will be interesting to see what this is about, and if it’s an anime or movie. I personally hope it will be an anime. Why can’t we get both a long-running anime and unrelated ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

If Goku ends up mastering UI for real in the current manga arc, then it would be weird not to adapt it. And if they are working on the next movie, then does it mean the manga’s story will be completely different due to the events of the GP arc? Then why would they even let Toyotaro draw a new story ...

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

What an incredible chapter. I loved this one. This is exactly the direction I wanted this arc to take. First of all, I am so happy Toyotaro decided to retire Moro’s crew from Earth and even give everyone 2 additional months! This, alone, is something I dearly missed in Super: the characters having s...

I like that new cover a lot, but I dislike how Toyotaro colors Goku’s gi with such a reddish color. Why isn’t he using the light orange Toriyama used?

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Honestly this sounds interesting. I never cared for DBE, never watched it because it looked like shit and know very well it’s a disaster of a movie but its existence doesn’t change my view on the franchise. A DB movie by Disney has the potential to be good. They will know very well they can’t get it...

Re: Has Moro Arc Base Goku/Vegeta Surpassed Everyone From DBZ?

I don’t think so, considering how Gohan was able to get to around Blue level if not higher in less than a day, after he got back to his Buu arc self, suggesting that Ultimate Gohan wasn’t many leagues below Super Saiyan Blue. Base Goku and Vegeta are of course stronger than they were at the end of B...

Re: PlayStation 5 and the future of DBZ games..

Xenoverse 3 will most likely come out on PS4 and PS5 too. The hopes for it are already high even if it were to only come to PS4, so I am not expecting the PS5 version to be anything too great except for the graphics of course. Of course on PS5 they could actually include bigger scenarios, with lots ...

I am still worried about the fighting system because it seems like it will be very repetitive. Hopef...

Re: dbs broly follows anime or manga?

I also see that there are three versions of the main continuity: film, anime and manga. I cannot think of another explanation why MSSB and SSBKK, for example, otherwise do not appear in Broly. The events in Super that do not occur in the films (U6, Zamasu, TOP) have actually happened in Toriyamas u...

https://i.imgur.com/DstdW2Z.png Is that image actually from the manga?

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

I am. Battle of Gods is such a wonderful addition to the franchise, that I can’t think of a Dragon Ball without it. Resurrection F is a story I still appreciate and find entertaining, despite the extremely bland direction, storyboard and art style from Yamamuro certainly not helping the movie. The l...

Re: Close to Toriyama but not Toriyama

Toriyama’s unwillingness to go after the end of his manga might also be because he does not want to write a new ending, as he may consider the one he wrote more than 20 years ago to be perfectly fine. And he also has no idea how to handle Uub and so prefers to keep the story as a midquel because it’...

Re: Close to Toriyama but not Toriyama

The problem is Dragon Ball's story was done 20 years ago. Characters arcs had ended, the story was over and characters grew up. When you add new adventures to an existing story it often feels tacked on, which is exactly what Super is. Characters like Vegeta had to regress for Super in order to let ...

I was wondering about what will be of Neo Namek. Can they even bring back the deceased Namekians? Didn’t Shenron already grant that wish once during the battle between Goku and Freeza? Getting rid of U7 Namekians for good would be a ballsy choice but it could benefit the story by removing another se...
