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

I am still feeling that this arc is just very average. It’s played very safely and adds little to nothing to the plot. I am waiting each month for this arc to have something more substantial and every month I come back deluded, I have realised that at this point it’s unlikely for this arc to be anyt...

Re: To me, Ultra Instinct feels like it came out of nowhere

Ultra Instinct was a concept since DB. Toyotaro's manga touched upon it and even TOEI's director stated it was a concept from way back when. No, it wasn’t. Toyotaro trying to shoehorn it into the various teachings Goku received doesn’t retroactively make Ultra Instinct something that was always imp...

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

This whole “DB is aimed to kids” talk was always nonsense and I bet everyone who went to watch the movie in theatres realised it. It also doesn’t help how the nostalgia stuff they keep including is obviously aimed to long time fans, who coincidentally are also the ones who wanted Broly and Gogeta to...

Re: Which Story Arc or Movie did Goku Character Best and Why?

It’s definitely the Saiyan arc for me, no doubt about it. There Goku was actually very central to the plot and was the driving force of it. Ever since Raditz stepped on Earth it was all about Goku, which is why I believe this arc did Goku the best as it’s the story in which Goku is the most protagon...

Re: When Did The "Legendary" Super Saiyan Form Become A Joke?

When Goten and Trunks achieved it that easily it already felt like a very easy transformation to do, but we also have to consider those are sons of Goku and Vegeta and I didn’t need Toriyama’s S-Cells explanation to understand that it seems like Saiyans do indeed inherit strength from their parents....

Re: Dragon Ball should've ended at Cell

Cell arc feels conclusive enough to be a good ending, although it would have been a rather pessimistic ending for a serie such as Dragon Ball. The Buu arc also had proper closure to Vegeta’s character and the actual ending we got with Goku going off to train Uub is very fitting as a wrap-up of Goku’...

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

This franchise fatigue theory sounds dumb, no offence. If this was the case they wouldn’t have been airing One Piece non stop for so many years. And Super has barely been on TV for 3 years. That’s not much. Not when the original run from DB to DBGT lasted for many more years. One of the main reason...

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

Although 2uper is going to happen sooner or later, maybe Toei and everyone else involved decided it might be best for the franchise to take breaks every few years to avoid franchise fatigue. Super 0.1 is still getting new dubbed episodes internationally and is overall still fresh in fans' minds. Ma...

Re: To me, Ultra Instinct feels like it came out of nowhere

They even go out of their way to remind you right there in the chapter itself with just a few of the countless times it's been broug...

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

Actually, Dragon Ball is a huge export item for TOEI to both Americas and Europe and you can thank US for airing the show late and starting the revival of Dragon Ball with DBZ Budokai in 2002 at first, as Dragon Ball slowly ''died'' with the end of DBGT and Dr. Slump remake that ran after and now t...

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

Theoretically for a show as big as Super is they should have no problems finding a new timeslot for it (even if it is a temporary one until Kitaro ends). Some people were speculating about Super possibly taking a Saturday evening time slot in the “golden time”, in a timeslot where One Piece used to...

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

While it would be weird for them to announce a new show this late, and with Shida confirmed to be returning to Super Dragon Ball Heroes (which would be a weird choice as they could move him to Super), I think there’s still a chance for there to be a surprise late announcement. As Baggie pointed out ...

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

I would like to point out how Toei’s financial report, despite being scheduled to come out on May 14th, might actually come 1 or 2 days later (at least, that’s what usually happens).
It will be surely out by May 16th as that’s the day when they have a meeting.

Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

What if Saiyans were exactly the same as Earthlings except for their tails and ability to go Oozaru? Which means no Zenkai boosts, no genetically fast improvement the more they fight, no Super Saiyan transformations, and in turn that Goku wouldn’t have a genetical advantage over the other characters...
