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

Please don’t mix up the anime with the manga, or we might as well begin to use examples from the old Toei movies too and that would do no good to the discussion.

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

Yeah, what would be the fun in seeing Goku just go for the kill? I get it that some do not like Moro. I don’t like him too. But it would be a terribly narrative if he had died this chapter just like that, and just because Goku is GP. What happened is much better and much more Dragon Ball. Also, Goku...

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

Funny how this is the most “Goku” Goku has been in years and yet people still complain, showing how much they don’t understand the character. As has already been pointed out, Goku doesn’t like to kill, especially not a defenseless opponent he’s already beaten up so easily. It’s also quite possible t...

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

I wonder if there’s the possibility that Moro could possibly be “redeemed” through becoming a God of Destruction and if Merus could be brought back to become his Angel.

I know this has been a fan theory for as long as this arc has been going on, but I wouldn’t mind such a development.

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

I think fighting as an Earthling means fighting to best someone, not to kill them. It means fighting as a martial artist. Seems like Goku wants to beat Moro into unconsciousness. I honestly wouldn’t mind it if Moro got redeemed. Maybe Goku could continuously beat him up over and over, even going as ...

Re: My apologies, Toyotaro

I will join in the praise: Toyotaro’s work as of lately has been spectacular . I am enjoying the manga a lot each month, and he’s on an incredible streak of awesome chapters. I have been very critical of his work in the past, and many times rightfully so. But after re-reading his manga a few times, ...

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

The art is, once again, unbelievably good. And Toriyama corrected a couple of drawings too! I saw some discussion about this on Twitter, but I'm not sure where this is coming from. What makes people think that there were Toriyama corrections? We got sketches and the Goku on the bottom has been very...

Another amazing chapter. The art is, once again, unbelievably good. And Toriyama corrected a couple of drawings too! Choreography was very good, too. I particularly liked the freeze move + uppercut Goku did to Moro. That was fantastic. As for the story, I wonder if Goku intends on sparing Moro after...

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

As expected Goku was calm in front of what just happened. I like how he says he has inherited the Galactic Patrol’s and Merus’ will. This may be the first time (canonically) that Goku fights not for his own sake but for the universe as well. This surprisingly fits very well with the fact that there’...

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

The reference isn’t as blatant as some are saying it is, but it’s definitely there. Toyotaro framed it similarly to invoke the same feelings, especially because attaining Ultra Instinct is the opposite of how Goku first went Super Saiyan (and most likely this way of achieving UI was Toriyama’s ideas...

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

Are we sure Merus is completely Toyo’s OC? The one thing we know that Toriyama came up for this arc was the Merus was an Angel. Perhaps everything else about Merus is all Toyo but at the very least I don’t think we can say that for certain. Considering how Toriyama came up with the whole “Merus is ...

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

Yeah the build up to this moment was always there from the beginning. In fact many of us knew that dropping this new lore about Angels disappearing when using their full power was a blatant Chekov gun. I actually didn’t expect this to be the trigger for Goku to finally reach the true Ultra Instinct ...

I wonder what will happen now that Goku masters Ultra Instinct once and for all. Even Merus said that no one would be able to stand against Ultra Instinct Goku, and now we have confirmation that Angels are basically programmed to disappear into nothingness as soon as they get serious about fighting ...

Before it turns out he actually did, if this ever is true, I would like to take the chance to say that I fully believe that Toriyama was quite involved with this chapter. That’s because he was the one who wrote that Merus is an Angel, so it’s possible he also wrote all of his story as his involvemen...

What a wonderful chapter. Toyotaro has been on an incredible streak recently! (Even art-wise!) I haven’t had chills by reading/watching a new Dragon Ball story ever since episode 131 of Super. I really liked how Toyotaro handled Merus’ story. Really really well done stuff. This chapter’s dialogue wa...

I have been saying that this would have happened for months. It was blatantly foreshadowed. No surprise at all, there, just that I thought it wouldn’t have happened this soon as I was expecting a dragged on finale like we got for Future Trunks arc, especially for this arc which is the slowest ever. ...

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

Seems like it’s heading towards Goku attaining Ultra Instinct somehow. Although it’s surely not going to be this straightforward. Someone between Merus or Goku will probably get his neck grabbed. I could see this ending with Moro getting Merus’ power and with Ultra Instinct Goku and Vegeta teaming u...

Re: Where can Saiyan transformations go from here?

Hopefully nowhere. And hopefully they won’t introduce new ones with new colors like orange or violet, just for the sake of having a Super Saiyan form for every color. They have probably already exhausted the hair changes, so I don’t think we need more forms like 3 or 4 either. Therefore I hope futur...

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

The only hint we have of something happening in 2021 comes from Toei’s last annual report:

Considering they said a movie was in the works, it’s possible that the release will be 2021.
