Re: Does the fact the DBS anime is not returning make you loose intrest in DB?

My interest is definitely lower considering the manga is monthly. The weekly anime brought much more enjoyment because there was more content and something to discuss every week. Right now I feel like how I felt during the 11 or so weeks of fillers we got between FT arc and US arc. I also feel less ...

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

Nice chapter. Not one of my favorites, but it had some interesting bits and I was happy to see Yamcha back to fighting. I guess it makes sense to involve him and Chaozu considering the threat Moro and the convicts pose. Although it’s weird that the Earth warriors are basically physically unchanged f...

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

Near as I can tell, the Vegetto incident seemed to involve Buu trying to use his own mass in order to manipulate his opponent's body from the inside-out. Babidi's magic is described as transmitting his thoughts into his victims. I admit both do share some similarities with respect to their emphasis...

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

This is a battle shonen. I can’t imagine any compelling scenario in which Babidi is a potent villain who kills fighters much stronger than him by making their veins explode. DB characters are protected by this kind of stuff, I would guess their Ki is so high it acts as a barrier for this kind of stu...

The so called "Rupturing Sorcery" that he used on Spopovich would be extremely dangerous to anyone who can't regenerate their entire body as it's described as causing the blood in the victim's body to violently convulse, causing their body to swell and tear itself apart. A high power level shouldn'...

Re: Why don’t we have a Guidebook so far for the show

They are probably waiting for Super to be fully over, so as not to write stuff that could be changed by future stories. Also most of the requests made here could surely be answered in the future by the show itself. And last but not least, Super has two main continuities which makes it confusionary. ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

I think I will wait a bit for reviews and to know, without spoilers, if the new story content of the game is worth buying the game for. Most of all, I’m interested in the longevity and if the extra stories are anything of substance that could interest me.

Re: How did Gohan get that much weaker between Z and Super?

I think Super retconned BoG Gohan to be already quite weakened, making his RoF self make more sense. It’s weird though that Gohan kept all his muscle mass after slacking off for 7 years, and could still go SS2, while in RoF he lost all his muscle and was barely able to transform. I guess during the...

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

I guess next chapter focus will be on those female prisoners who will face 18, Caulifla, and Kale... Or maybe they involve Universe 2 trio. - Vegeta's power up will be dissapointment, one time only, and not something as iconic, and as enduring as Shunkaido. And he will be back to his usual beams, a...

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

Honestly Super adapting the manga as a seasonal anime would be quite nice in my opinion. Surely there would be less complaints and it would finally feel like a cohesive product. Although it would be nice to still get some filler episode every once and then, or for the anime to add to the manga. I do...

Re: Can Any Saiyan Achieve SSJG/SSJB Under Angel Training?

Who knows. Goku and Vegeta were very advanced when they met Whis. The U6 Saiyans we know are very advanced too, and they are also very talented so it wouldn’t be a problem for them to learn about God Ki if they trained seriously under Whis. The same should apply to the half Saiyans. But the average ...

Yeah, it’s weird how it’s been paced so far. In fact I fully expect the next chapter to end with the Earth warriors about to fight Moro’s gang or Moro himself, while I think if this was paced like other arcs we would already get Goku and Vegeta joining the battlefield on the next chapter and startin...

I have recently re-read the entire Super’s manga, and I wanted to share a quick opinion while it’s fresh in my mind. First of all, I must say I remembered the art being worse.

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

I feel like Toriyama lost trust in Toei after the disaster Super was, and has thus decided that in the future they will have to go back to adapting the manga as they did back in the 80s. Honestly this could be a good decision, especially for those of us who seek a more consistent product between bo...

Re: If You Could Rewrite the Dragon Ball Manga, How Would You Do It?

When thinking about it, there’s nothing I would change as I like the manga as it is, even though it’s not perfect, but nothing is. I would just add more stuff to better expand the story where possible, like the Saiyan arc training - especially Gohan’s, to show more of his relationship with Piccolo. ...

Re: The most perfect continuation of Dragon Ball manga (DB&DBZ anime)

I don’t mind Super being a midquel, in fact the manga’s ending works well enough that I can’t think of a more fitting ending for it and Super’s stories wouldn’t fit with Uub around in my opinion. As for the most perfect continuation, it would be: - Wrath of the Dragon movie (perfectly fits with the ...

Re: Base Saiyajins in the Super manga

Trunks was compared to Cell Games Gohan, on the same form. So 2x Super Perfect Cell, and SS2 Buu arc levels. Meaning that since Buu arc, Goku and Vegeta probably haven’t improved too much aside from their God forms. But it’s possible that their base states are now closer to their SS stages, so that ...
