Re: The villain who killed Jiren's Master

I have read on Dragon Ball wiki that it was a demon who killed Jiren's parents, but I couldn't find any source. If it's really a demon, then it could easily be written as a powerful and malevolent entity and definitely a future villain (not sure if it's enough to carry an entire arc though). Is it ...

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

First of all: I absolutely love the cover for this volume. And I am glad we are finally getting the DBS manga in full color. But I don’t agree with their choice of not keeping the normal Super Saiyan color from the full color version of Toriyama’s manga, and I also do not like how they draw everyone...

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

Merus will return for sure. Realistically Buu too should get involved but it’s possible he won’t fight anymore. If I had to write the arc’s ending myself, I would write Merus’ intervention to be important but he would be stopped by Whis or Daishinkan before taking out Moro for good, then Buu would r...

Re: Was Vegeta virgin before Bulma?

It’s possible he had some fun with some “Cheelai” from Freeza’s forces. I doubt he ever raped when conquering Planets, because we have to remember that the universe has only 28 Planets with intelligent life, and it’s possible most of those were already enslaved by Freeza through different methods l...

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

But Goku was always involved in this conflict from the start, even if at first he was being in Vegeta’s shadow the plot still had Goku as central as Vegeta and Merus. About Merus, he will most likely have to return in this very arc to complete his character arc and I expect that to be over once he f...

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

Really, what would be the point in Gohan and Piccolo defeating him? It would have added absolutely nothing to the story, it would have been just fanservice. Which is fine?! The entire franchise hinges on fanservice, they are not even subtle about this. It would just been satisfying to see, is all. ...

So I did some digging and found the raw version of the chapter I mentioned earlier (excuse my shitty MS Paint tier circle): https://i.imgur.com/qP6nKMm.png Viz somewhat erroneously translated this line as "a sign of Goku awakening to Ultra Instinct", but the original Japanese text has Whis straight...

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

I quite liked this chapter. Goku zipping around Saganbo at super fast speed to the point he was invisibile to everyone but Jaco and Moro was the highlight for me. It was a very cool way to hype up Goku’s new power. Also I don’t mind it at all that Goku has now control of Ultra Instinct Omen and has ...

Re: Manga 'retcons'(?)

I have no problems with Gohan knowing Taiyoken or Goku the Mafuuba. Those “retcons” (they aren’t retcons in my opinion) served the story. So what if Goku was the one remembering the Mafuuba and not Piccolo? It was a way to advance the plot faster, as having Piccolo conveniently be there to suggest i...

Re: i remember reading somewhere

The rumor was that Toei wanted to recast Goku for Battle of Gods, they asked Toriyama and he was against it. That’s just it. I have no idea who spread it and if it’s true or not.

Re: Should the series introduce God forms for other races?

Yep. Never too late to give Piccolo something interesting. There's the red-eyed transformation for Namekusejins established by Dragon Ball Online. Since absolutely no information was provided, it could easily be his god form. I don't know if I would want Earthlings with such transformation. Just gi...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

Seems like people confuse their personal tastes and preferences and disliking of Super with creative bankruptcy. No. Modern Dragon Ball is not creatively bankrupt. It offered much, and still has much to offer. Maybe we can say that modern Dragon Ball often relies too much on nostalgia - but we could...

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

Yeah there’s no way they will let Toyotaro go even after Super ends. He will most likely get to draw a long running sequel or spin-off.

And I too think Toriyama will end Super with a final movie.

Re: SSGSS Evolution is a Disgustingly Bad, Ugly Transformation

I phrased it uncorrectly. I meant that they only use his barebones outlines + his movies, which are actually full scripts. Actually we don’t even know how barebones the outlines are but surely they aren’t as deep as the actual stories which came out of them. Basically I bet that when Toriyama has t...

Re: SSGSS Evolution is a Disgustingly Bad, Ugly Transformation

The movie clearly was written to fit both continuities and there’s a simple reason: because Toriyama bases his stories on his outlines, not on the anime or manga. This way he’s sure not to mess with any of those continuities, and it’s easier work for him. (...) By keeping only the barebones - which...

Re: Manga statements on SSJ forms

The only multiplier which can be understood from the manga is Super Saiyan’s 50x multiplier. Kaioken x20 didn’t work on a Freeza using 50% of his full power, so it’s easy to figure out 40x wouldn’t have been enough and so the next number is 50x which made Goku on par with Freeza’s 100% before his st...

Re: SSGSS Evolution is a Disgustingly Bad, Ugly Transformation

Because SSBKK doesn't exist in the manga, and CSSB doesnt exist in the anime. So by including neither in the movie, the film could fit in both contintuies. That doesn't make sense at all. If that were the case, then it really should've been the other way around. If Goku and Vegeta had stronger form...
