Re: Which Goku Return/Power Increase is Your Favorite In the Original Series? (not Including Transformations)

I personally like the ones where Goku's power increase seems more natural and earned. My favorite two have to be: 1. 23 Tenkaichi Budokai 2. Touchdown on Namek I prefer Goku's attitude in Dragon Ball, mainly for the setting, because he was also allowed to be playful with his power increase and showo...

Re: If you were a Saiyan, what path would you go through to get stronger?

I'd buck the trend and not bother to get strong at all, but instead become a brilliant scientist :lol: Ocean Bardock would be proud. I'd first get trained by all the Earthen masters I could, maybe even Tien and Yamcha if I could convince them. Learning Earth based techniques gives a basic basis for...

Re: What Inconsistencies &/or Retcons You Wished Were Never Made In Dragon Ball Super?

When it comes to inconsistencies I'd say a large chunk of the anime (like 80% of it) and decent portion of the manga (like 40%). As far as retcons go, nothing legitimately bothers me more than Dragon Ball Minus. It's one of the worst pieces of content to ever come out of the franchise, if not, THE ...

Re: What Would It Take For Krillin, Tien, Piccolo, and Yamcha to Catch up to Goku and Vegeta in a Satisfying Way?

Piccolo just needs his potential unleashed by old Kai, then he can train to re-attain Godly Ki(as Kami, they gain Godly Ki though it isn't that much, enough to be able to sense Godly Ki at least) Kami being fused back with Piccolo should give him the possibility of gaining Godly Ki easier than it n...

Re: Perfect Ultra Instinct: Skinny vs. Swole?

It shouldn't be a form so it shouldn't change his body at all. Boiling this concept down to a transformation is another misstep for Super. IMO, just like with my opinion for SSG and SSB, I think the eyes and aura should be what's changed and emphasized. Maybe a slight discoloring to the edges of the...

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

Pretty sure that Goku saying “let me fight him as an Earthling from here on” means that he will use the Mafuba (a unique technique invented by an Earthling (Master Mutaito) to defeat to powerful non-Earthling (Piccolo Daimao)) and seal Moro up (he is pure evil after all) instead of killing him. Wow...

Re: What Inconsistencies &/or Retcons You Wished Were Never Made In Dragon Ball Super?

My #1 thing is the loss of Saiyan Beyond God and the perfect chance to streamline Saiyan transformations, but Grimlock posted most of the other stuff I dislike. • One Kaioshin per Universe . • Lazy and senseless. It's five Kaioshins, that's how it must be (although, to be fair, this is a problem sha...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

People do know that these aren't real characters and that their words are actually coming from the author, right? That isn't always the case. Even DB has enough sophistication with its characters that they make statements and act on their own limited information. What a character says isn't there j...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Beerus is still the measuring stick. I knew this already but the latest chapter is hammering this home. He's nonplussed by Goku's fight with Moro, nonplussed by UI Goku really. Broly was said to be maybe stronger than Beerus while Jiren definitely was stronger than Belmod without his Limit Breaker....

Re: The Vegeta redevelopment and Moro arc highlights why the story staying in U7 is causing it to suffer

I'd enjoy some one-shot/mini-series spin-offs telling us about the lives and maybe some independent adventures of some of the other heroes, like the Humans. I think events have passed them by far too much for them to justifiably take up much space in the main storyline, for however long that contin...

New Broly, has a personality and isn’t some overpowering muscle headed idiot. The guy knew when he was gonna lose and was about to go out in style.
True, but that's because he has no personality at all once he starts fighting.

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

I don't see a lot of defense videos like I do of GT nor do I see a lot of critique videos like I do of GT. It seems to get a general consensus of a 7 out of 10 and thats where I place it as well. I think its softened a little due to the nature of nostalgia and the fact that its been off air for 2 a...

Re: How old is Gohan in each arc/film?

Hmm I actually went and checked Gohan’s birthday episode and Chi Chi does indeed say he turned 11 in the subs. There’s even 11 birthday candles on his birthday cake. My mistake. So it was the original Japanese anime that fucked up his age not Funimation. TBF, it makes more sense to me this way. The...

Re: How old is Gohan in each arc/film?

He’s 16 in the Buu saga. Not 18. Funimation royally fucked up by saying he was 11 in the Cell Games and calling High School aged Gohan “Adult Gohan” It wasnt all Funimation's fault. Toei added an extra year for Goku being in space, so Gohan was 10. Also I could've sworn the sub said he was 11 at on...

Re: There's always room for more strong guys in other universes

Maybe it's time for reboot... Er, no. Just look at how muddled DC and Marvel have become overtime due to reboots. Even back when there was only 1 reboot, things were still a mess. If anything, maybe release an official book or something that adds in certain retons that have happened over the years,...

That R word, but if anything needs one, its DB. They could flesh out so much even as early as pre Raditz-DB.

Re: Should the next arc focus on old characters/z fighters or new characters?

I always think of how good Gon and Killua of HxH are written which makes me lament the handling of Goten and Trunks. If Vegeta does visit Sadala, I'd rather he take these two for a Saiyan history lesson of sorts/adventure, rather than Goku. I don't think it's a fair comparison, as Gon and Killua ar...
