Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

Odd comparison, but I always found the Nolan Batman trilogy VASTLY overrated. Begins is meh. Dark Knight is pretty good. Rises is terrible.

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

Personally not on board with the idea of "They've handled this classic character poorly so they should get rid of them". The just need to DO BETTER and stop humiliating the old cast. I'm not going to pick any minor characters like Goten, Chi Chi or any of the Tournament of Power nobodies because wha...

Re: Is Goku a hero in Super?

Even characters like that had motivations and things to fight for. Goku in Super doesn't really care about anything or anyone if it doesn't amuse his battle obsession . He's by no means heroic in Super. That is patently false. Goku on several occasions in Super has shown empathy to others, or at le...

Re: Is Goku a hero in Super?

DBS's version is not a hero in any modern understanding of the term. But he can be classed a hero like Achilles from Greek myth. Just a ridiculously OP warrior the story's about who's venerated by his peers. Even characters like that had motivations and things to fight for. Goku in Super doesn't re...

Re: Thoughts on Ribrianne?

She would have been great if she had only ACTUALLY BEEN A STRONG FIGHTER. All she does is get thrown around by universe 7's team a bit, not even forcing Goku or Vegeta to use ssj. Then in her final episode she transforms and literally gets one-shotted out. She was an overhyped time-waster. AND she ...

Re: What about Super disservice with characters like Goten, Trunks and Yamcha?

Yamcha is my favorite character and I despise how they've meme-ified him, but a thing I've noticed is at least people generally seem to agree that Yamcha deserved a spot on the universe 7 team. Poor fucking Buu though! I feel like I'm one of the only ones who even cares how badly he's shafted. Most ...

Obviously the writers couldn't handle the scope of a battle royale so I'd say absolutely.

Re: What, IYO, is Super's greatest achievement and detriment in its whole run.

Greatest, and probably only achievement: The introduction of some interesting new characters, most notably, Hit. Biggest Detriment? Easy: Squandering almost EVERY option to utilize their massive cast, including shafting even the new characters like Hit. Instead, the flanderized, boring, and overpowe...

Re: Let’s pretend that Hit actually was hiding in a pocket dimension, how does this change the narrative?

Hit's final stand against Jiren was not impressive. Maybe if he had ANY lasting effects on Jiren it could have been but nope. Hit's strategy could have been the reason Jiren was out of commission for so long afterward, but no. Jiren just breaks time for some bullshit reason and is only out of commis...

There's only three episodes left. Even if by some miracle those episodes are the greatest things ever, that won't change the fact that I hated a vast majority of the show.

Re: Let’s pretend that Hit actually was hiding in a pocket dimension, how does this change the narrative?

Don't bullshit me. Hit got one elimination (against someone I doubt most of you even remember the name of) in the whole tournament before (EXTREMELY PREDICTABLY) jobbing to Jiren. He also went out without leaving even a smidgen of real damage to him. That's it. You're lying to my goddamn face if yo...

Re: Mastered Ultra Instinct [Spoiler Discussion Thread]

Aesthetically, the new hair color utterly ruins it. The black hair was the main thing I liked about the design before. Toriyama's design that was shown is particularly uninspired and bland. Narratively, more pointless transformations that only exist to sell merchandise are fucking awful. Why does th...

Re: Let’s pretend that Hit actually was hiding in a pocket dimension, how does this change the narrative?

Thing is people joke about that theory, but I feel like the main reason it came about was because Hit's elimination was so poorly written and he went out with only one elimination on a fodder character. People found it hard to believe or didn't want to believe that was all there was to him. Ah yes ...

Re: Does Dragon Ball even feel like a story anymore?

Nah, none of these arcs even connect at all, and now the show is ending and very little of any importance has actually changed in the narrative. The show has no real plot reason to exist as of now, because the show always sets things up but has also done nothing with anything it set up. It's a nothi...

Re: Is it up to fans to headcanon how Goku and Vegeta can regain all their stamina in 20 seconds?

This is why Buu, because of his healing powers, objectively would have been a better choice for the tournament than Frieza from a writing standpoint. He could have done pretty much everything Frieza has done thus far, but also could have been a healer, essentially fixing the whole problem of charact...

No theories necessary. It's almost certainly just a random dude who just exists for the sake of the backstory.
