Re: Dragon Ball should've ended at Cell

Fans make arguments that it should've ended with Namek or even after the 23rd Tenkaichi. The problem with ending it anywhere else besides the Buu arc is it leaves great concepts and plot points behind. If it ended with the 23rd Tenkaichi we wouldn't have gotten any of the great concepts and charact...

Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

Nah that is your own opinion broly movie is way more popular you are just in the small minority about this. I'm not talking about popularity. Broly made nearly 120 million $ at the box office so it's without question very popular. I'm saying that instead of just giving us the same thing we had in t...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Well, if the intention is just to pay attention to the visuals, or put it above all else, then there isn't really much to discuss about this movie. Like I said, "animation/visuals/fights" aren't/shouldn't (?) be above all else. I agree. the story should've gotten more care put into it and even bett...

Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

No. Broly is easily the best thing the franchise has ever produced. It's phenomenal in every category. Is it in the story category ? All it did was take 2 older movies and a TV special and mix them into one movie. It wasn't bad by any means but was that the best they could've done ? Wouldn't this k...

Re: "Evil Goku" In the Fandom

I do recall seeing a lot of 'Evil Gokuu' on people's wish-lists for storylines. Frankly, I'm not interested in those storylines and I think Toriyama was wise to create an 'Evil Gokuu' who was not Gokuu but an impostor. Similarly, I think that Tullece is also an interesting take on the concept with ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Cooler ...?

Perhaps it makes it more real (debatable, because no matter how much science you put into magic and superpowers, they are still made up BS), but that doesn't mean the story is the better for it if it slows the story to a crawl just to explain how things fictional things work. Don't let the tail wag...

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

- Pilaf and Shu. Their forced shenanigans partly destroyed my investment in Future Trunks Arc. I'm fine with Mai. She seems to be nice without those two around. - Kale and Caulifla. I just hate everything about them except designs. - Ribrianne. Her whole "love thing" annoys me to the point that I'v...

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

Freeza. He is the epitome of Toriyama's pandering to the peak of Z, always getting mentioned in arcs since then and now making a proper comeback in modern Dragon Ball. I'd rather Beerus or Zeno erase him from existence once and for all. Nope they won't be survives in the broly movie and broly will ...

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

Toriyama isn’t one to do solo antagonists. Its usually a duo of characters (Beerus and Whis, Vegeta and Nappa, Babidi and Buu, Shin and Kirito before we knew they were good) and other times has a villain or two that end up being a red herring for the actual villain of the arc. Also a lot of the tim...

Re: Regarding Freeza (spoilers for the upcoming movie)

I have zero problem with the wish and am a bit surprised people expected Freeza to be anything but a largely neutral presence now. Once you fight alongside Goku, you are never really a villain again. That's the rule. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with this tamer, more flexible Freeza i...

Re: The Future of Dragon Ball Super

Don't compare Naruto with Dragon ball. I don't see why not. Both have/had a weekly anime and monthly manga set after the events of the original series. Both are stretching the story for the sake of milking the cash cow instead of letting mangaka allow a conclusion to their franchise. DB is no excep...

Re: The Future of Dragon Ball Super

Nah end of z would be an arc and later explore other universes. A story like DB cannot continue indefinitely, it needs to have closure and they are only filling the gaps right now. Look at Naruto, they're trying to go beyond the ending with Boruto and it stinks. Don't compare Naruto with Dragon ball.

Re: The Future of Dragon Ball Super

I would like the main story with Goku & co. to end, close it up with the EoZ. They are milking the Toriyama cash cow as much as possible and it's ruining the series imo. Instead, I'd like the rest of the DB universe to be explored from different POVs and with a different cast. Nah end of z would be...

Re: Regarding Freeza (spoilers for the upcoming movie)

What doesn't add up is that Frieza basically threw away his first empire in order to TRY to get to be immortal. It was an important achievement to him. And now he wants to grew 5cm??? After having been killed two times???? No, it doesn't make sense, at all. It's dumb as hell. Anyhow, I don't think ...

Re: Regarding Freeza (spoilers for the upcoming movie)

Now that I’ve (reluctantly) read the spoilers for the upcoming movie, the big thing that I’m iffy about is what they apparently did with Freeza. So, apparently Freeza’s entire goal in Dragon Ball Super: Broly is to use the Dragon Balls to become five centimeters taller. Needless to say, that’s a pr...

The wish is stupid cause Frieza is not a gag character. The guy was the emperor of the universe, killed thousands of people and now wants to grow 5cm... I am sorry, but I am not a fan of this. Also, what is Frieza's plan after Broly kills Goku and Vegeta? Did he think they will be best friends... M...
