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

Also Goku tried to kill Fused Zamasu with the hakai. Having trained with Beerus, Goku would know that hakai is a killing move that destroys the target completely, down to their soul. He had no problem destroying Zamasu and depriving him of an afterlife (not even the chance to reincarnate himself li...

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

Frieza practically killed himself after Goku told him to receed the path of evil. Piccolo Daimao was killed in a struggle to survive in an actual fight. Cell shown some battle tendency directly straight from Goku himself. For Buu, after the entire Earth genocide, Goku wished for reincarnation giving...

Why would Goku even spare Moro?
Is not for MORO, is a thing about the death penalty from Galactic Patrol.
Goku refuse to kill a stunned defenseless opponent.

Re: Has Super's reputation softened or hardened since it ended?

The trend I spot is a general lack of interest. YouTube is not exactly the best platform to get an honest metric : kids are not prone to produce meaningfull videos and critics should be exagerated to grab attention. The new generations are also VERY low on attention span: if you'll mind Demon Slayer...

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

It's OBVIOUS what happen. Goku should KILL Moro, but refuse and decide to do a fair duel, like earthling does (we does?). Beerus had a bad feeling about (in other terms: he want for Goku to end the battle right now, but Goku do the Goku thing). He give a sentzu to Moro (checkov gun of Crilin), they ...

Checklist. There's Goku. Let's have other people do something with henchmen. Goku struggle at the start. Goku training. A sparring partner die, Goku morph. Vegeta did something? mkay. But not essential. Space! Space opponent! A criminal that destroy planets! The opponent change three times or more. ...

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

Mumble... mastering UI is such an essential plot point (and whatever consequences there will be for Merus obliteration) that this arc will be quite surely animated - if not by episodes by a movie. I hate such fragmentation... It's strange to notice how you could have entirely removed Red&Blue, start...

Re: Should there be Dragon Ball light novels?

Well, Dragon Ball Gaiden: Tensei-shitara Yamcha Datta Ken was not written by Toriyama and was an isekai that could have been great in novel format too (as many LN ARE isekai after all). Light novels can break the continuity and explore the universe horizontally, something that the strict manga conti...

Re: How would you feel about a villianous team?

Even my example of the Ginyu Force fight broke down into 1vs1 duels. I think Toyotaro actually did this the best we've seen in the series with the Earthlings in the Moro arc. Each fighter had unique opponents and fought in different locations and each fight evolved in unique ways into a "part 2" of...

Re: How would you feel about a villianous team?

With the show focusing on 2 characters alone, a villain team will end in a serie of 1vs1 duels. So, probably this will never happen. In a more lucky universe where kids where not such in love with Vegeta, and you had a normal power level evolution, the Z fighters could have specialized and fought ag...

DBZ early part was a good action shonen,

What does that even mean? They’re both shonen.
Early DB was more a kodomo or a gag manga than a shonen.
DBZ is definitely an action shonen.

Re: Has Whis Been Mostly Suppressed Throughout The Story?

I think he was actually a plot tool that no one figured out he could have a recurring role, so his abstract "strenght" had to be suppressed somehow.
He does probably never fight for real.

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

If Frieza had to appear in the spine he should have long before, and probably Broly will be not there (why do a movie retell? It will be a movie spoiler on his own). Also, spines are not actual hints on any manga lenght, some ended abruptly (like BT'X did, if my memory serves me well) before the pan...

Rewatching Super after a while

I'm watching Super again after a while, 5 episodes at once. I found the serie a bit more engaging this time, forgetting everything I knew from DBZ tension, and I had to say it work very fine as a light hearted shonen. It's obviously aimed to kids that doesn't care a lot for subtle plots or strict co...

Re: The Ultimate Idea! What if there was a special room/time dimension..

So, everyone get boosted, everyone become the best himself, and how you can proceed with the story? Easy: come with someone that's stronger than this. So, the effect is null. You seems to forget that the whole purpose of DB is to tell a story. Not to increase level of fictional characters (that's ju...

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

"Gay" evildoers come from ancient eastern myth of eunuchs. They are not modern day gays depictions and SURELY is not a political issue. Kefka of Final Fantasy 6, for example, was a similar character. A gay individual CAN BE evil, wtf, gays are not angels. Well, they also depict gays with POWER, some...

Re: DB is not better than DBZ

I don't have any complain on DBZ and having a grown up Goku being involved in serious contexts was appropriate. My only complain is how the whole thing get rushed just after Goku character arc ended. I mean: it was quite obvious to me that the whole thing should have ended there, at least on Goku pa...

Re: Forced Spirit Fission (transformation)

Ultra Instinct it's more like a state of deep conscious focusing - there is some martial art myth about a mind condition where you move more by muscular memory than actual conscious reaction - a kinda "alpha waves" state. So, I think "condition" is the right word to describe it. Oh, well, now I have...
