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

It would be hilariously stupid for each of the involved companies to not want an on-going weekly TV show AND yearly movies to fully capitalize on the cash cow that DB has become. The fact that merchandising sells well doesn’t mean that “DB is set”, and everyone should be able to tell that if they ne...

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

Episode 13 is the first DB Heroes episode I found to be genuinely entertaining, and that’s mostly due to Shida’s insane 1 minutes and 11 seconds long cut. I also liked other stuff in the episode, such as the overall direction, storyboard and also things like Goku having finally flowy hair and the Pi...

Re: Backstory of Saiyans.

The Saiyan-Tsufuru war was never mentioned in the manga. It may belong in the bin alongside many other tidbits Toriyama gave during the years. King Vegeta being the 3rd king of the Saiyans was a tidbit I actually appreciated as it gives Saiyan’s history some more mystery which I like. Vegeta not tel...

Re: Do you think Super would have benefited by holding off on Super Saiyan Blue?

Again I point out that SSJ2 barely looks different from SSJ yet I never see people complain about that. That's because of how it was introduced and used. Ssj2 is mainly known for being used by Cell Games Gohan and Majin Vegeta. Their transformations and fights became classics in the franchise. The ...

I hope that while we are waiting all this time not only is Toei continuing to work on the next show behind the scenes, but Toriyama is also preparing a few new stories for the future (he should have had almost 2 years now since he completed Broly’s script and ToP’s outline) so that there can be mor...

Re: Do you think Super would have benefited by holding off on Super Saiyan Blue?

Honestly Blue should have never happened and they should have kept God as the strongest form until Ultra Instinct, with Vegeta at best getting Blue as his response to UI. But if I had to absolutely keep Blue, I would introduce it in the U6 arc. I would explain how the 3 years spent by Goku and Veget...

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

There are stories about moms being strong enough to move cars when their babies are in danger. Obviously they can't call on this strength whenever they want because it's such a reactionary, and specific circumstance that brought out such physical might. Same applies here. Under extremely stressful ...

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

Not sure how I feel about these new “canon backstories” considering some of the stuff Toriyama made up in recent years (Minus) but I'm cautiously optimistic This backstory stuff will most likely be on the same level of “canon” as the old Z fillers were (which were based upon Toriyama’s ideas he sen...

There is no defending the genki dama bit (but it was just a one time thing only, later UI activations were better developed and out of his control, UI activates in a much harder way than in the manga: being against the ropes) just like there is no defending Goku just activating UI at will like he w...

Re: What happened to Oob?

Why would Uub even have to take Goku’s main character spot. They could share it, as it’s happening right now with Vegeta or as happened in Z with Gohan.

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

TOEI randomly gave Goku UI, through being overcome by large amounts of energy. It was not good writing. While Toyotaro coherently continued Dragonball manga canon with principles from Toriyama's story. Goku looking back at a CERTAIN ASPECT of his teachings didn't make him look like an amateur. He w...

Re: When Will We Ever Get Out of the Boo Fight - End of Z Rift?!

Frankly, I find most of those aforementioned story concepts to be more engaging as a viewer than the ever escalating duopoly that's systematised Dragon Ball outside of the guest appearances and tournament arc concessions. Don't forget that the relationship between #18 and Krillin could be elaborate...

Re: So Vic Mignogna is going to Super World Con this weekend. Should I get my Broly Funko Pop signed or not?

Is an autograph really that important to you? Either way Vic won’t be voicing Broly anymore in the future, so maybe you should just wait and have the figure signed by Broly’s future VA. Frankly he’s not even the “real” Broly’s VA and the work he did on the new movie was nothing impressive. But that’...

Was there anything that said Toriyama didn't write this story? He tends to at least have the basic outline for it, as well as approve anything that happens in it. I apply the good and bad things to both of them rather than shoulder it on just Toyo. No. Toriyama is still credited for the story each ...

Re: A state higher than Ultra Instinct?

I didn't like the fact that they turned Ultra Instinct into a pseudo-transformation for Goku in the first place. This concept only serves to continually stack onto the already oversized pile of hair colour forms that exist. No one else besides Goku and maybe Vegeta is going to use them. I say let t...
