Re: DBS treated Goten and Trunks really bad

Even if they do go to EOZ someday, the problem is Goten then just becomes another Gohan or Yamcha expy. EOZ Goten looks to be Gohan or Yamcha 2.0, and I don't think he would even do anything major not counting Gotenks.

Re: Shueisha, Twitter and DMCA

Maybe people should stop posting manga scans and extended clips of the anime then. It was always rather obvious people were getting away from too much.

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

Goku is the focus of this arc again? Man, when will they ever focus on one of the main characters who isn't the hero of the franchise for once.

They're going to make Baby canon, aren't they?

Hopefully they revamp his character a bit like Broly.

Re: Did Freeza ever say, "This is not even my final form" in canon?

So this is what I see: https://impossiblehq.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Final-Form.jpg Was this really not said in the old Season 3 Funimation dub from 1999? That's where I assume most of these lines become memes in the west because they feel like old dub lines Funimation would have had back in t...

Re: Everything Wrong with Dragon Ball Super

There's no problem with tournament arcs. DBZ had no real tournament arcs until the Boo arc and that was cut short but this is not DBZ.

The "new villain comes out of nowhere to challenge the heroes" is equally done to death, especially with all the old movies included. So I don't see the problem.

Re: Everything Wrong with Dragon Ball Super

Most of these things with the exception of a few are nitpicks, it's the same thing people used to complain about when the Boo saga was the last series. Like SSJ3, Super Saiyan kids, Fusion, Gohan's Ultimate form not amounting to much, etc. The only reason people don't talk about this as much anymore...

Re: Regarding the anime’s “return”

I think the scary thing is Masako Nozawa is 84 years old. Even if she lives to 100 or whatever, she may not remain healthy enough or have the vocal chords/strength to play Goku's role and all his screaming in a few years. While DB will certainly continue after she passes (sadly), I honestly wonder i...

Re: Everything Wrong with Dragon Ball Super

Super's real problem just starts from trivializing Super Saiyan God and Blue way too early in the series.

If they kept everyone around Boo saga strength for awhile most of Super's "problems" would be fixed.

Did Freeza ever say, "This is not even my final form" in canon?

I always see these meme images of Freeza online with, "This is not even my final form" as the dialogue, and I cannot recall, does he actually have that line in the episodes or is something the internet meme'd into reality? Either Japanese or dub line?

Re: Anyone surprised the original run of Dragon Ball/DBZ/GT only lasted about 10 years?

I honestly wonder if things would have been different if Toriyama wasn't burnt out by drawing the manga by 1995...and if he created Beerus/Whis way back then. Imagine if DBZ ended with Goku Vs. Beerus and it just stopped there (I dunno if GT would have still happened or not). Feels like the existenc...

Re: Goten or Tien? Who was more mistreated in Super?

It's weird how little Trunks/Goten do in Super. Kid Trunks at least gets some development in the Zamasu arc and interactions with his Future counterpart and the Pilaf gang, so he at least gets something. Tenshinhan got screwed out of at least one episode to himself in the TOP whereas everyone else i...

Re: What does Vegeta think of Krillin and the Humans?

Vegeta doesn't seem to care about Yamcha or Tenshinhan at all. Since they're so underpowered compared to him he just doesn't think of them I imagine. It's in the same manner he stopped caring about 18 even though she was the one to beat and humiliate him for the first time after he became Super Saiy...

Re: Why did Yamcha, Tien, Piccolo, and Chioatzu keep their bodies after death?

It's funny because in the anime Boo arc we see Krillin keep his body and pal around with King Kai even though he never met him before and never trained under him.

Why did Yamcha, Tien, Piccolo, and Chioatzu keep their bodies after death?

After the Saiyan saga why did they keep their bodies? We know Goku did as a special request from Kami when he brought his body to King Yemma to train with King Kai. Was it ever stated why Goku's friends got to keep their bodies after death? They weren't anything "special" so to speak in terms of the...

"Jumping the shark" doesn't always mean a series turns terrible, but does something the series that alienates fans who have been watching. Some examples include Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 6-7 (or even before that introducing Buffy's kid sister Dawn), Pokemon anime fans feel it jumped when Misty...

With any luck they've run out of hair colors for new Super Saiyan forms: - Blonde - Red - Blue - Silver - Green is for Broly/Kale so Goku won't get it - Rose is Goku Black only Besides that forms that change appearance entirely like SSJ3 and SSJ4 is something Toriyama has moved away from, so I also ...

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

Freeza becoming a good guy would be a big one for me. Given most of Goku's enemies become his friends I was fearing they were heading toward that route by the end of the TOP but thank god it didn't happen. Freeza is just as villainous as ever. Considering they haven't had him appear since the Broly ...

Anyone surprised the original run of Dragon Ball/DBZ/GT only lasted about 10 years?

The original Dragon Ball debuted in Japan on February 26, 1986. GT's final episode aired on November 19, 1997. That means the whole original run of the Dragon Ball anime through the end of GT only aired over the span of about 10 years in Japan from 1986 to 1997. While of course that's pretty "long" ...
