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

They have most likely already realized how important Dragon Ball is, and that’s why they are taking so much time in preparing for the next big animated DB thing. I fully expect DB to return stronger than ever quality-wise. Toei is showing with Dragon Quest how they can make a great weekly show when ...

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

Quite a great chapter, but I’m getting used to such quality chapters as of lately, as Toyotaro’s on a long streak of awesome chapters. The art and panelling only keeps on improving, and I am so glad to say that not only is art no more an issue but I am actually looking forward to Toyotaro’s work eac...

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

I wouldn't expect a restart of the anime for a few years. Not unless every series' staff gets cannibalized. Call back in three years when Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken (2020) ends. I wouldn’t be too sure. They could use Digimon’s staff and take from DQ. The latter has also been promoted as a mix b...

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

Nice to have confirmation that the manga will continue after this arc. It was already quite obvious it was going to continue but at least it’s now confirmed. I am actually more interested in what’s coming next for the new arc than in the climax of the current one. And I am actually liking the climax...

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

It took Goku basically three hits to dominate Moro. He’s no threat whatsoever right now. It’s not even similar to what was happening with Cell when Gohan was toying around too much, because Ultra Instinct ensures that there’s no way Moro can try anything crazy without Goku immediately reacting. It w...

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

This is classic Goku. Remember that it’s the same guy who back on Namek was willing to leave the fight with Freeza cause he proved his superiority. And Freeza was still standing and had killed Krillin just a few minutes earlier. By Goku’s perspective, compared to Namek Freeza Moro is a nice guy. He ...

Re: What Inconsistencies &/or Retcons You Wished Were Never Made In Dragon Ball Super?

What bothers me is that the anime had to add some stuff which was later retconned by Toriyama himself, such as Freeza not knowing what fusion is. I also wished Ginyu was never brought back and that Freeza never killed Piccolo in Resurrection F. Actually I wished the retellings of the movies, which a...

Re: Perfect Ultra Instinct: Skinny vs. Swole?

Normal body is better and makes more sense.

It isn’t a transformation. Toyotaro in the ToP probably assumed that Toriyama had made it skinnier but actually he changed the muscle mass a bit when tracing/altering the SSG design so I suppose he intended it to be the same as the base form, muscles wise.

Please don’t mix up the anime with the manga, or we might as well begin to use examples from the old Toei movies too and that would do no good to the discussion.

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

Yeah, what would be the fun in seeing Goku just go for the kill? I get it that some do not like Moro. I don’t like him too. But it would be a terribly narrative if he had died this chapter just like that, and just because Goku is GP. What happened is much better and much more Dragon Ball. Also, Goku...

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

Funny how this is the most “Goku” Goku has been in years and yet people still complain, showing how much they don’t understand the character. As has already been pointed out, Goku doesn’t like to kill, especially not a defenseless opponent he’s already beaten up so easily. It’s also quite possible t...

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

I wonder if there’s the possibility that Moro could possibly be “redeemed” through becoming a God of Destruction and if Merus could be brought back to become his Angel.

I know this has been a fan theory for as long as this arc has been going on, but I wouldn’t mind such a development.

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

I think fighting as an Earthling means fighting to best someone, not to kill them. It means fighting as a martial artist. Seems like Goku wants to beat Moro into unconsciousness. I honestly wouldn’t mind it if Moro got redeemed. Maybe Goku could continuously beat him up over and over, even going as ...

Re: My apologies, Toyotaro

I will join in the praise: Toyotaro’s work as of lately has been spectacular . I am enjoying the manga a lot each month, and he’s on an incredible streak of awesome chapters. I have been very critical of his work in the past, and many times rightfully so. But after re-reading his manga a few times, ...

The art is, once again, unbelievably good. And Toriyama corrected a couple of drawings too! I saw some discussion about this on Twitter, but I'm not sure where this is coming from. What makes people think that there were Toriyama corrections? We got sketches and the Goku on the bottom has been very...

Another amazing chapter. The art is, once again, unbelievably good. And Toriyama corrected a couple of drawings too! Choreography was very good, too. I particularly liked the freeze move + uppercut Goku did to Moro. That was fantastic. As for the story, I wonder if Goku intends on sparing Moro after...

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

As expected Goku was calm in front of what just happened. I like how he says he has inherited the Galactic Patrol’s and Merus’ will. This may be the first time (canonically) that Goku fights not for his own sake but for the universe as well. This surprisingly fits very well with the fact that there’...

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

The reference isn’t as blatant as some are saying it is, but it’s definitely there. Toyotaro framed it similarly to invoke the same feelings, especially because attaining Ultra Instinct is the opposite of how Goku first went Super Saiyan (and most likely this way of achieving UI was Toriyama’s ideas...

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

Are we sure Merus is completely Toyo’s OC? The one thing we know that Toriyama came up for this arc was the Merus was an Angel. Perhaps everything else about Merus is all Toyo but at the very least I don’t think we can say that for certain. Considering how Toriyama came up with the whole “Merus is ...

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

Yeah the build up to this moment was always there from the beginning. In fact many of us knew that dropping this new lore about Angels disappearing when using their full power was a blatant Chekov gun. I actually didn’t expect this to be the trigger for Goku to finally reach the true Ultra Instinct ...
