Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

Here's a fan fiction that I enjoyed a lot when I read it a few years back: Our Great Conscience, by KaviNasiga. It's set 25 years after Goku vanished in Dragon Ball GT, in a time where the people of a now-unified Earth worship Goku and Vegeta's descendants (Trunks, Pan, etc.) as gods, while their hu...

Re: Need help finding old AMVs

Wish I could help more, especially since I was big Dragon Ball AMV person myself a while back. But well, maybe others might be able to recognize the videos with more information. Do you remember the web sites you saw these videos on? Or the names/screen names of the people who made the videos? This ...

Re: The Anime's ToP or the Manga's ToP? Which one did you prefer?

Toyo's ToP taken alone without the anime as support is incredibly bland an boring and unnaturally fast. Introduces tons of characters and then proceeds to do nothing whatsoever with them Definitely agree. One of the great things about the anime version was that we got to learn quite a bit about the...

Re: The Anime's ToP or the Manga's ToP? Which one did you prefer?

Because it's quite likely that Toyotaro eliminated many characters so fast it's because they were already given focus in the anime, so he felt he could mostly skip them It's possible, but honestly, I suspect the real reason is that either Toyotaro or his editors didn't want to fall too behind the a...

Re: What do you think of the tone difference between Z and Super?

Well, the thing is that Super started out really as an action/comedy, which was likely due to the Battle of Gods film (and the Buu Saga before it) bringing back some of that early Dragon Ball humor. As the show progressed, however, it slowly slid back into the dramatic tone of the Z era, starting wi...

Re: The Anime's ToP or the Manga's ToP? Which one did you prefer?

I'd have to say the anime, honestly. It just had way more room to breathe, and we got to learn a lot about the fighters from the other universes. The manga ToP, on the other hand, felt like Toyotaro was in a hurry to get everybody knocked off, so he picked a small handful of the more powerful or sne...

I remember being pleasantly surprised to see that in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, the Ginyu Force had preceded Frieza, and after reading this chapter, it makes even more sense that they worked for King Cold first :lol:

Re: Do you think Super would have benefited by holding off on Super Saiyan Blue?

As much as I enjoyed the SSB reveal in Resurrection of F (and even more so the reveal that Vegeta had also learned to do it), I do agree that it's a pity Super Saiyan God didn't really get much of a moment to shine outside of Battle of Gods. I definitely think Toriyama and co. could have played a bi...

Re: Uub's role after EOZ

I don't think any series that transitioned to a new generation has ever had as much success as their predecessors. Boruto isn't as successful as Naruto. In some stories, Bruce Wayne retires and passes the torch to an older Robin or new, younger Batman but there's new comics, films, video games, etc...

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

Also, it's cool to think that Kid Buu actually had some god ki. He would need to have a mix of mortal and god since his ki could be sensed. Right, and maybe that's why Vegeta underestimated Kid Buu before Kid blew up Earth-- he could only sense a PART of Kid Buu's power. I did always find it weird ...

The OP thing is even more of a dumb reasoning because a) DB & OP are not competing. b) A TV show & a movie are non competing mediums. c) OP has it's own new arc starting in its tv series in July so why the hell would anyone think DBS got delayed for the OP movie :lol: Yeah... well, I'm not sure Gee...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Hmm, I'm curious... when Goku says that Piccolo Daimao's essence was transferred into Piccolo Jr., can we take that to mean Daimao's soul? "Essence" is somewhat vague, so I'm curious if the term used in the original Japanese dialogue can also be interpreted as "soul," or if it's similarly open to in...

I think I may be the only person in this entire fandom who thinks Jiren "The Grey" is a cool character.

The manga has had some gruesome moments in the recent Moro arc. As for the anime, I think Japan's censorship rules have become a little stricter in recent years, right?

I think I'm going to break the format here and pick a single character: Bulma.

It really shaped her portrayal in Dragon Ball Super, which is the series that I f...
