Re: Would the Universe 6 saga have worked as a movie?

I think one of the big problems with the arc is that it FELT like a DBZ movie (like a bojack type movie). In these movies there's always one plot point and a central bad guy that gets beat at the end. Which is exactly what happened here. There was a central tourney premise, filler characters who cou...

Re: Will GT Really Become "Lost" This Time?

Actually it's almost making sense. All they have to do is find a random reason for Goku and vegeta to never use the blue hair anymore (maybe it was honed into regular super saiyan energy or whatever), whis and beerus say we'll never see you again, and that's it. Goku fighting in normal form on par w...

Re: Why hasn't Super had any cultural impact at all?

no stakes (characters far stronger than anyone are sitting in the stands) How does this equate to no stakes? Not no stakes, but very little. There is much less of a sense of danger if the kind of "big bad" (I don't even know if you could call hit that), can be defeated in a single shot by 4 charact...

Re: Why hasn't Super had any cultural impact at all?

To quell the hype so much the series just had to be really mediocre to bad, which it was. Just remember the retelling of both movies because they didn't have the content and rushed. On top of that, remember episode 5 at the beginning of the series. Remember just the animation quality in general and ...

Re: ssgss Goku would be less then rage Vegeta..

it doesn't make sense unless you make something up. End of story it's a kids show people. Power levels make less sense than they did in DBZ and they really didn't make sense in DBZ. Let's calm down, Goku is meant to be weaker than beerus at this juncture story wise. No science or logic needed. That ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

Gonna do one of those, mainly for my own sake. The BoG and RoF arcs are based on the movies and not Super (mainly because I just watched them) Buu arc SSJ3 Vegito - 400 SSJ2 Vegito - 100 Super Vegito - 50 Gohan Buu - 17 Gohan - 10 SSJ3 Gotenks - 8 SSJ2 Gotenks - 2 SSJ Gotenks - 1 SSJ3 Goku - 1 Kid ...

Re: *Spoiler* Who do you think will appear after....

Honest? Dr. Gero. There's a lot of potential in an evil mastermind capable of building androids far far stronger than Freeza, and he has personal history with not only Goku, but Number 18 as well. Lots of room for good storytelling there. Are you joking? They already did that in GT and it would be ...

Re: Which Super Saiyan form did Gohan use against Dabra?

This latest episode (vegeta vs maggetta) of super showed us how toriyama and the saiyans think. It's strategy in where they are playing a game with babidi so they don't want to show their trump card until the end and God forbid if majin buu is born. That's a funnel through which you could view gohan...

Re: Wishing all the good people back to life?

Why do you have to bring religion into Dragon Ball? It's just evil people that do evil thing, i thought it was clear enough. Because a lot of religions say you're not good unless you follow their set of rules. Like christianity. Ekhm, you mean islam? I agree with Kuririn Fan, we don't need religion...

Wishing all the good people back to life?

Bulma wished all the "good" people back to life in the buu saga... What kind of cult clan bs is this? Bulma's the smartest character in the series she knows exactly what she's doing. How do you differentiate good from evil? Religion? My buddy's Jewish that means he's not coming back to life? There a...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

All these weird stretch theories are because the show is not doing its job.

Re: Beerus Did It -Overpowered Feats or Lazy Storytelling?

Well, as you can tell by my username and avatar, I love Beerus, and one of the reasons I love the character so much is because how much he contributes to the universe and making it feel larger than it is. I don't mind most of his contribution or feats like wrecking King Kai's planet, wiping out the...

Re: age progression

Man, I find it to be insulting for comparing Pokemon & DBZ. That too with age thing. I mean, at least with DBZ you have a TON of characters since heyday DragonBall times progressing naturally with various stages of life. Take Krillin for instance.

dragonball and dragonball z the characters aged and seemed like they continuously got older. Now in super, goku and bulma look like they did at the beginning of z and no one has the wrinkles they had during the buu saga (chi chi, bulma). Same thing with goten and trunks, their physical appearance ha...

SSJ goku > 4th frost > 3rd form frost = Base god goku > 4th form Frieza > 1st form Frieza > ssj gohan, gotenks, etc

And now piccolo is gonna do anything vs frost? This is really starting to show its a children's show and this thread shouldn't exist (a thread based on nonexistent logic)

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Power Level Discussion Thread

It's hard to believe bog vegeta ssj2 could be stronger than buuhan. He was told everyone he loves is dead before fusion and it didn't really make him that much stronger in the buu arc which makes sense. It felt like there were stakes and back then there always needed to be something drastic done to ...
