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

Putting the current chapter/arc aside for a moment, I wouldn't say all atonement is selfish. If the final goal is other-directed at all, you're not necessarily thinking about personal relief in that instance (even if personal relief happens to be the result). Vegeta's sacrifice against Boo was emot...

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

I still really don't buy that, but let's say that's the case, it completely invalidates all the time Toyotaro has spent dangling Vegeta's work on Yardrat in front of us. Forget insulting Vegeta fans, why would he waste all that time writing and paneling and drawing to have the result of that effort...

Re: Anyone still hopes for Goku and Vegeta to make themselves scarce for an arc, or two?

Like that you are simply tired of them, and just want someone else, anyone, being in the center of attention? This was pretty much the case for the Moro arc. I, of course, loved it! They were featured heavily at the start of the arc and the end and I'm fine with that because the middle was Earthlin...

Re: So is this whole Moro arc basically the, "Garlic Jr. saga" of Super?

It doesn't feel like Toriyama is that involved honestly. There's so much obligatory fan service. Toyotaro said a number of the ideas presented here are his, and when it comes to fan service, Toriyama just gave us Broly. You can't get more fan service than that. Ehh.. Still. He's never been one to w...

Re: Possibility of Piccolo becoming relevant again (pfffffttt)...

Toriyama seems keen on a set formula ever since the events of ROF took place. You may have the occasional guest star and a B-list set of fighters try to aid them but ultimately the only ones with a written journey of their training and exploits in Super are Goku and Vegeta. Frankly, it's been one o...

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

Vegeta has the power to sneeze Piccolo out of existence, the Namekian already knows how utterly outclassed he is and that’s why he was also forced out of the U6 Tournament by Vegeta. He has no tool to fight Vegeta, so replying to that would have been just stupid. Not like Vegeta would just kill him...

Not sure if anyone else has cited this yet but does Vegeta's remark to Piccolo about having the power to forcibly remove his fusion partners irk anyone else?

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

Nail's purpose was just to facilitate their meeting Guru and to help Piccolo stall Freeza. That's it. Bringing him back serves no purpose. What do you mean? New Namek needs all the powerful fighters it can get. Nail would be a great Guardian for the planet. The man's potential was crazy, being Giny...

Re: Does anyone else think Super Saiyan Blue looks tacky?

I remember way back when after BOG was released, fans had theorized that Vegeta undergoing the SSJG ritual would result in his eyes, hair, and aura turning blue instead of red like with Goku to show that SSJG's color varied among individual Saiyans. It was actually pretty awesome at the time and le...

Re: At first I didn't care, but now I really wish for Toei to animate Moro arc...

It's a good arc and judging by the pacing so far, it could easily have 15+ episodes. There's no reason to skip it, if the anime ever comes back. The story is already laid down for them. I usually choose anime over manga too. Animation, voice acting and music makes all the difference to me. Talking ...

Re: So is this whole Moro arc basically the, "Garlic Jr. saga" of Super?

Nah, Garlic Jr. was actually fun. Moro is dreadfully boring and well past its expiration date. I like both! They each add something a little different that other villains don't. Garlic Jr. being literally immortal and having ties to Kami and past Kamis. And Moro being a threatening magic user. I li...

Re: Why isn't Piccolo as strong or even stronger than Android 17 currently is?

Honestly, how strong characters get in Dragon Ball is to the whims of the plot and pure convenience from Toriyama. All Toei and Toyotaro have done is take that mindset and stretch the liberty of it to such an absurd degree. This, of course, is the real answer. But the other things you said are more...

Re: Why don’t we have a Guidebook so far for the show

I have this feeling that a guidebook would only introduce more confusion into things. Everything is already confusing enough. There's not even a single canon anymore. There would inevitably be errors in such a production just due to the web of information (both conflicting and conjoining) scattered ...

Re: How did Gohan get that much weaker between Z and Super?

I've often said that I feel like they forgot they made Piccolo stronger than a Super Saiyan in the Cell saga. The fact that Dabura dismissed him, the fact that Frost was considered too much for him, struggling against Shisami/Tagoma. He gets a raw deal. As for Gohan, he got lazy and didn't train. T...

I wish they would create a new evolved form for Super Saiyan 4. Like Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Evolution. I'm still a fan of Super Saiyan Primal, which someone coined over in on the DBS boards.

Re: Is Spirit Control now the "catch-all" for the strange unexplained DB techniques?

Se the above. In the manga, I don't believe it was ever said ki control is necessary for Blue. The rest is really just head canon since it was never said anywhere, manga or anime, that keeping your ki in your body gives you god ki. How else do you explain, when in the mange they go MSSB, a form whi...

Re: Is Spirit Control now the "catch-all" for the strange unexplained DB techniques?

Spirit Control is _JUST_ Ki Control with another name. That's it But if that's the case, why is this all new to Vegeta? Because it's a different APPLICATION of Ki Manipulation. He'd probably have similar issues in learning Mafuuba or Tenshinhan's four-arms technique. That's how it should be explain...

Whereas I've always thought that the old one was a bit overdesigned and kind of ugly. I lik...

Re: Is Spirit Control now the "catch-all" for the strange unexplained DB techniques?

This! The idea that Spirit Control is the same is Ki Control is utter bullshit. They should’ve left that quote out in the manga, since it was totally unneccesary and causes way more confusion than clarification. They are clearly not the same. Since “Ki control” is exactly what Vegeta has learned fr...
