Re: Where can Saiyan transformations go from here?

Yeah those don’t look that bad. Here’s another great example from artist Salvamakoto: https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/0b01937a-fbe0-4d3d-8b55-72d2f9b0968a/dc35o2e-e395af12-a93b-4614-a6c0-ac34d5e31dc3.png/v1/fill/w_1600,h_987,q_80,strp/goku_ssj_migatte_no_gokui_by_salvamakot...

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.

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

We already know that Digimon Adventure (2020) was going to last only 1 year, now we know how many episodes Digimon Adventure will do. 66 episodes. Source: https://www.toei-animation.com/catalog/digimon-adventure-2020/ Weird, this means it will possibly end in September 12th but this is assuming no ...

Re: Dr Slump and original Dragon Ball in top 10 list for most wanted reboot shows

But, frankly, if there is a Dragon Ball show which desperately needs a reboot that is Dragon Ball Super. If they could go back and have Shintani handle the designs from the start, trim it, fix the retellings (or not even retell the movies at all and continue from them) and mix it up with Toyotaro’s...

Professional woman here. We have different ideas, we also have stupid women, just like men also have stupid men. The idea is to find a non-stupid woman with different ideas. Like, hey, Kamatani Haruka is a cool woman (assuming she isn't an enby)! Lets ask her to direct a Dragon Ball story. To direc...

Re: Dr Slump and original Dragon Ball in top 10 list for most wanted reboot shows

I would love a Dragon Ball reboot with Shintani doing the designs and possibly striving to be as accurate as possible to Toriyama’s manga, including the various art-style shifts. At that point they might even go the distance and reboot DBZ too, all under the same name of just “Dragonball” like the 4...

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

At this point I would expect the anime to come back first before a new movie, because they will most likely want to adapt Moro before jumping into new stuff.

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

Let's see what kind of work people other than men can make! Again, what you are saying sounds as bad as saying “let only men work on DB because only men understand it”. It’s the same principle but reversed. It’s still sexist. There's absolutely nothing sexist about it. Nobody said it should be "wom...

[*]Women-creating the series. Toei Animation has access to plenty of female creators, lets see them have even more prominent roles in creating Dragon Ball ! Heck, let's see if any non-binary people are also on hand that can be involved more heavily in the creative process. Let's see what kind of wo...

God can’t possibly be above Rosè Black. The numbers would be more like: • SS Vegeta: 20 • SS Black: 15 • God Vegeta: 40 • Blue Vegeta: Range of 70 to 35 • Rose Black: 60 • Future Zamasu: 10 • Mastered Blue Goku: 80 • Merged Zamasu: 80 This would explain why Vegeta was able to have an upper hand on B...

This makes sense, but are we really sure it is like that with other franchises (at least, those you mentioned or generally Bandai Namco ones) ? Overall yes, especially with mainstream ones like Naruto and DB. I think it has to do with anime worldwide possibly being more popular, so they want as man...

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

I'd assume that's because the vast majority of merchandise tends to revolve around animated adaptations. The same holds true for shonen franchises outside of Dragon Ball - you wouldn't typically see figures/merch for One Piece, Naruto, Bleach etc. until it was adapted in the TV series and the packa...

Did people forget about the Future Trunks arc?

Instead he simply rushed in to fight Black and...

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

Let’s just admit that, unlike other Super antagonists/villains, Moro is the most generic and that’s why everyone keeps comparing him to other villains we already had. It’s very unfortunate. But there’s still some hope he can show more of his personality. For example, I remember him hinting at some ...
