Re: In terms of pure potential, this is my scale for the following Saiyans

Okay, where would you put Future Trunks, Pan, Bulla, Goten and Kid Trunks? Might as well get a complete list going.

Re: Characters you wish were completely removed from Super/sequels

Goku and Vegeta. The main issue with the series is that the power jumps are so ridiculous and no one can keep up because these two leave everyone else in the dust thanks in part to the plot's obsession to up the ante with bigger and bigger power level numbers. After having 12 universes fight in a to...

Re: Who would have been more useful in the future timeline: Krillin or Piccolo

In a fight? Neither. They're both below the Androids and even if they could get stronger they'd tire out first. HOWEVER that doesn't mean either would be useless in stopping the Androids. Krillin honestly could probably have talked them round. I know that 17 and 18 were meant to be super evil, but t...

Re: Disregarding quality, are you happy Super existed

Super gave us: [*]Yamcha Baseball Episode which is easily the most fun episode Dragonball's ever had. Yes, including the driving one. [*]Krillin focus episodes which I greatly appreciated. Wish the ToP had treated him a little better though [*]A fun dynamic with Frieza for a little bit that made him...

Re: I'm happy that the last 3 fighters were not all saiyans

It's just nice to see something different once in a while. Pre tournament I doubt many guessed 17 would not only outlast Gohan but also Vegeta and even be the last man standing. I was expecting Frieza to make it to the final three alongside the no brainer Goku, but I couldn't decide if it was going ...

Re: What do you wish was done differently now that Super is over?

I have a lot of ideas but something I've been playing with lately is the idea of removing Gohan and Tenshinhan from the Tournament of Power and replacing them with Videl and Chi-Chi. I think the character interactions would've been more fun and those two are so played out that their mere presence i...

Re: So What Was the Point of the Tournament of Power Arc?

Zeno has agreed not to erase all of existence due to the selflessness of 17's wish? The reward is everything doesn't get destroyed I guess. We got a bunch more characters and universes to explore and I guess we see there's still more mountains to climb for Goku to reach the top. Jiren's too strong f...

Re: What do you wish was done differently now that Super is over?

- More episodes and moments that are slice of life. My favorite parts of Super have been the lives of the cast like baseball, Vegeta's family vacation etc. - Make Frost a good Freeza. He was only really unique when he was percieved as a hero, then was kind of boring when he turned into Freeza Lite....

Re: Do you think 17 will continue being a major character or go back into obscurity?

I think 17 will be more involved with the gang than he has been now he's formed a good friendship with Goku and...bizarrely one with Frieza too. He actually gels well with the majority of the cast and I hope he's kept around even if it's just for slice of life episodes as there's plenty of potential...

Re: What do you wish was done differently now that Super is over?

Don't bother with the retellings. BoG's retelling was honestly awful, and whilst RoF gave us some fun Ginyu and Tagoma action for variation, it's ultimately pointless if the end result is the same. Monaka was such a pointless plot point too, since Beerus was already Goku's goal he didn't need Monaka...

Re: Is Freeza a top 5 most important character in DB-DBZ-DBS?

That's a tough ask... Obviously Goku, Bulma, Vegeta, Gohan, Future Trunks, Piccolo and Krillin are all important characters...I'm not sure where to place Frieza within that despite him now being important in three canon arcs. Goku, Vegeta and Future Trunks/Bulma are the cause for a lot of the arcs h...

Re: What I think Super lacks in comparaison to Z

Yeah, I think it's a bit unfair to say the connection between arcs is a bad thing. Early DBZ is a great example: Raditz comes to Earth to look for his brother Goku dies fighting him Piccolo tells Raditz about the Dragonballs to taunt him Vegeta and Nappa overhear about the balls, they're coming to E...

Re: Your thoughts on the Tournament of Power compared to the Dragon World's other arcs

Second best arc in Super for me, but it's by far the one with the most unrealised potential. There feels like actual stakes are involved, something that the Champa arc was sorely lacking, and even to an extent the Goku Black Arc. Unlike previous arcs I have no idea what's going to happen week to wee...

Re: i think Akira's time is over with the Dragonball series

As to the claim that Dragon Ball can't be good without Toriyama, I'd just like to point people towards the Bardock special. I can point to GT and even Boruto to who say it can be good without him. I don't see how Boruto proves anything considering it's not the same series. Not only that but many fa...

I just want to say that Akyon, I hope you remember that it wa specifically said that if goku held back, The universes would be destroyed right there and then.

It's worth noting I would have preferred Tenshinhan to also have got a straight up win against said Sniper prior to Frost eliminating him. The draw seemed weird since all Tenshinhan had to do was keep a clone on the stage and he'd technically still be in...

Re: How do you feel about the reveal that Android 17 is still alive?

Android 17 is my favourite fighter in the ToP, but I feel him surviving here cheapens everything about his shock 'sacrifice'. 17 went above and beyond, but at this point I do feel like this may be favouritism since narratively there's no reason for him to remain and he may even take away from Frieza...
