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

I wonder if Vegeta’s alternate path to Goku will have something to do with the “controlling Oozaru in base form” ability Broly has. It would definitely be fitting, especially for someone like Vegeta who had full control as an Oozaru.

I don’t think they will make SS4 canon though.

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

Goku being confronted directly with the sins of his biological father would be interesting. He shouldn’t care much and has already said that Saiyans got what they deserved, but it would be interesting nonetheless to have someone point out to him the terror his father generated. It’s even more ironic...

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

I am so happy to see that Granola is connected to the Saiyans and that his race was exterminated by their hands. A villain with a backstory like this was bound to happen someday, and it’s a perfectly fine backstory. I wonder how Granola was able to escape from the genocide, and if he will confuse Go...

Saiyan arc continues to dunk on the anime industry

💪
It has really stood the test of time.
It still amazes me how great it is every time I either re-read or re-watch it. It’s such an incredible arc.

Re: Kanzenshuu's favorite arcs. UPDATE: The results

I just saw this thread. Nice idea. I will add my picks (only Manga arcs): S. Saiyan, Freeza, 23rd Budokai A. 21st Budokai, Broly, Battle of Gods (Movie) B. Androids, Buu, 22nd Budokai, Champa C. Red Ribbon Army, Pilaf, Universal Survival D. Piccolo Daimao, Future Trunks E. Galactic Patrol Prisoner, ...

Re: What would be the breaking point Super would do that would make you feel like it jumped the shark?

There’s no breaking point. If it ceases to entertain me and becomes boring for too long, without anything interesting in prospect, then I would probably quit. That doesn’t mean I would never read/watch anything new but I probably wouldn’t be involved at all in discussing it on only forums. And it al...

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

Am I the only one who hopes to see Broly back in this arc?
I would be incredibly happy if in the next chapter we saw Goku training with him on Vampa.
Considering how this time the story is based on a Toriyama’s draft once again, I really hope he will include Lemo, Cheelai and Broly.

Re: How Would You Have Written Dragon Ball Super?

I don't get why people wanted the number of fighters in the ToP to get reduced. Why cut out the guys that haven't had a good fight in years? It was nice seeing them fight again. I would've made the ToP 34 hours long instead of 48 minutes. That time limit was beyond stupid, up there with Freeza's 5 ...

Re: How Would You Have Written Dragon Ball Super?

With the manga as my basis, there would not be much I would change (I don’t think I could have done a better job than Toyotaro at expanding Toriyama’s outlines) but there’s definitely stuff I would add or borrow from the anime. For starters, I would have it begin straight from U6 arc, and I would ex...

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

Toriyama gets angry when his work is treated badly, same as with Evolution. I never said he didn’t care about the anime, but he probably shifted his interest toward the manga more when he saw how bad the anime was and how difficult it was for him to control it. Supervising a weekly anime is much har...

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

Toriyama purposefully chose Broly among many ideas thrown at him because he found a way to make him work. He wasn’t forced. Heck, he even watched tue old Broli movies to make sure he could write a familiar Broly. This time around, among all the ideas, it’s possible that Toriyama found Baby to be the...

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

The mental gymnastics to call a 45 pages per chapter manga similar to Shingeki no Kyojin, Akatsuki no Yona and many many others irrelevant is fascinating to watch. Sure, we're just assuming things and V-Jump barely has manga in it right? Somehow ignoring a full plot with storyboards done is somethi...

Re: Would you be interested in a Dragon Ball prequel series?

I am not sure I would want a whole serie like that, but I would like a lot to see mini-episodes (a la Pokemon Generations or Pokemon Twilight Wings, or a la Super DB Heroes ) or TV specials set in the past, or exploring moments we never saw.

Of course they could produce an episodic anime like that.

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

I don’t know about whether or not choosing Gogeta over Vegetto in the Future Trunks arc would have been the best choice. Zamasu’s delusion that Gods are better than mortals is one of the main points of his character. Having Goku and Vegeta smack his face by using the very same tools that in Zamasu’s...

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

I hope they don't animate the first 3 arcs of Super from the manga, or if they do I want them to keep their own art style and just adapt the various plot points. I don't like how bulky some of the characters in the manga look (especially Zamasu). It just makes them look more generic. I prefer how Z...

Re: What is the best format for Dragon Ball Super moving forward?

My wildest wish is for the anime of Super to be rebooted as an adaptation of the manga, from U6 arc, while considering all the 3 movies by Toriyama as the canonical ones (so they wouldn’t get reanimated). This way we could finally have a consistent story to be consumed in both ways, and it would be...

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

The movie is supposedly canonizing none other than Baby Vegeta. The cherry on the cake being that Broly gets Super Saiyan 4 and fuses with Goku to make what the source calls “Goly” though it’s uncertain if he’s just making up a name or not. If it was true, maybe in Japanese it would be “Gori” which...
