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 ...

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

Majin Boo Saga Trailer Okay this hyped me. Very well made trailer, graphics are looking more polished although the backgrounds still don’t look that good and the shading is a bit off at some points. 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? Goku looks kinda creepy there lol No. There's too much shading (Toriyama hated that & partly invented the Super Saiyan form as to not need to shade Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Trunks, Goten, etc's hair at points), the face is weird, & ...

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 ...

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

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...

I wonder if one can literally fly off during a battle and get chased by the enemy. It’s always been something I wanted to do in a DB game, to fly off to other places to change scenarios. The closest we've ever gotten to that was Budokai 2 & 3 including the changing locations in some of the stages w...

Re: Is being attracted to a Dragon Ball character considered weird?

Well in my country we had memes saying “There are those who masturbated to Android 18 and those who lie” and it was universally accepted that everyone had some fantasy about her during their childhood/teenage years. Having had a crush on cartoon characters is perfectly normal in my opinion, and it’s...

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

It’s funny how this chapter’s dialogue about how Goku achieved Ultra Instinct fits better with the anime than the manga.
So much for the “Ultra Instinct is the culmination of every teaching Goku received” thing the manga had going on.

The chapter’s out on Manga Plus. This was quite a slow one, again. But it’s nice to see Krillin and Gohan involved too, though I don’t get why Krillin wouldn’t bring 18 along considering how good she is. Also it would be nice if Tenshinan and Yamcha joined but it seems like they will be left out of ...

Re: You are put in charge of the entire Dragon Ball Franchise what you do ?

I would: - Bring back Dragon Ball on air as a weekly TV show, with Naohiro Shintani as character designer, keeping Broly’s movie lineart filter and colors. This show would be set after the end of the manga, with stories written by Toriyama who I would make more involved in the writing. To keep Super...

Re: dbs broly follows anime or manga?

Well the movie was said to be the next story of the events happening on the anime by Toriyama himself. The fact Goku didn’t use Kaioken doesn’t really change things, considering how it’s a technique. Does Goku not using the Genkidama also make it not canon? Also Toyotaro, when depicting Broly’s even...

Had Paragus electrified Broly a few more times, even just once like for example to show Freeza the method to calm Broly, the...
