Re: Does the Super Manga feel incomplete?

The manga is just promotional material, canon but unnecessary at the end.

Re: Broly’s power increase in this movie explained (Spoilers)

Broly was already that strong, his power didn't come out until he started fighting. Also assuming it's following the original movie, Broly is the most gifted saiyan of all time, by a colossal margin. It's not like Broly getting stronger is an asspull, it's an old meme because it's an old concept.

Re: Dragon Ball needs a New Generation?

Goku is arguably more iconic than Dragon Ball itself. He is by far the most loved character in the show. It's not like Naruto where many fans had their favorite characters other than the MC. Many Naruto fans liked Kakashi, Sasuke, Itachi etc over Naruto himself (tons of viewers disliked Naruto as we...

Re: DBZ had better choreographed fights with more martial arts compared to Super...

Yes and No. Super's best was better than Z's best. Super's worst however was far worse than Z's worse. Z was more consistent overall.

With that being said, Goku vs Jiren might be the best fight in entire Dragon Ball.

Re: Why a next generation series should be a PRIORITY

Dragon Ball has no end goal, the show can practically continue forever. DB is all about enjoying the adventure. If you feel you're getting tired of the DB characters, trying watching another show DB without Goku is not DB. Goku is Dragon Ball. Goku is more important to Dragon Ball than Naruto was to...

Re: Why have a "no-killing" rule in the ToP?

Same reason killing isn't allowed in any tournament. Murderers would always win regardless of skills.

Re: Super possibly losing its timeslot or going on hiatus in March?

Super is NOT ending. It's the biggest money making media franchise in Japan right now. Super ending will massively dent or erase all those revenue, which would make zero sense financially. No anime/manga based show is making as much money as Super, not even One Piece. Super is making 2x the money o...

Super's ratings aren't declining alone, all others are declining too. Nothing to do with Super itself. TV is dying in Japan

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

It's already been brought up, but it's only natural that ratings are going down since TV is dying. But does it have to die so fast during DBS' lifetime ? Also, we don't know how successful streaming sites are in Japan to say how TV is being replaced. That ranking chart looks somewhat better. TV rat...

Re: Would you like to see Toppo and Dyspo getting eliminated by Jiren?

Jiren is far more heroic than Goku could ever be, he's the closest to Superman in Dragon Ball. It will be completely out of character for Jiren to do something so stupid. Not even Frieza is that dumb, and he's as evil as it gets.

Re: So what is the consensus on Jiren as a character?

I am interested in his concept

As for character, Jiren is neither a character nor he has one. He's more of a plot device, pretty cool though. I wasn't expecting anything deep and wasn't disappointed, he did what he was meant for

Seems like many people didn't get my point. I am not questioning why the tournament exists.

What is the point of Universal Survival arc?

I know we got to see all 12 universes and a bunch of new characters, but we already know what would happen at EoZ. Universe 7 isn't getting erased, or even if it is they will come back with any asspull necessary. The other universes will possibly also be restored with Super Dragon Ball. So basically...

Re: Is the composition of the Universe Survival arc terrible?

The only gripe I have is how useless this arc is. It is supposed to have the most tension in Dragon Ball history due to threat of multiverse erasure, but we already know nothing would happen to U7. Nobody is fearing the fate of Goku and Vegeta, there is zero tension. At least we lost something in Fu...

Re: Theories & Ideas On The Origin of Zen'ō

My wacky theory is that Zeno isn't the ultimate God. The Ultimate God is divided into three gods, Zeno King of Gods of Destruction, Zuno King of Gods of Knowledge (Kaios), and, Zalama King of Gods of Creation (Kaioshins). And once these 3 combine together, The Ultimate God Zeluma will be reborn. Yo...

Re: Dragon Ball Sales- Bandai Namco 2017 revenue (and 2018 forecast)

The only anime comparable to Pokemon outside Japan in Dragon Ball. Everything else (including Naruto, yes) is insect in comparison. This is an objective fact based on sales figures, gross revenue and ratings.

Re: Will Gohan reach a new level?

Gohan won't be getting anything new, he's no longer a main character. How many episodes has he been on Super outside the current tournament? He will again go back to studying after this.

Let Gohan go, he won't be a badass fighter. As of now, he's the best he could be
