Re: Unpopular Opinion: The power scaling in Super is fine and makes some sense

While I don't agree that the SEG's statement on the potara was a literal power level times power level equation, the guides do mean much, in fact they are required for some details that were not apparent within the manga or anime. We need the guides to answer frequently asked questions and to aid i...

Re: Unpopular Opinion: The power scaling in Super is fine and makes some sense

Super exciting guide states it. A guide doesn't mean much. If you need a guide books to do homework with to explain the lore of the show that it couldn't explain itself, then the lore of the show must not have been very solid to begin with, and it certainly isn't as solid as some folk would like to...

Re: Dragon Ball Super's writing - a thought experiment

Super hasn't done anything nearly as silly as your scenario. Not even close to it. Yes it would be weird. Because raditz, even way back at the start of Z, was a worse fighter than either Goku or Piccolo. The only reason he dominated then was because his number was bigger and that's it. If Raditz cam...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

It's best not to judge based off an episode title (though some of you will anyway. It's just in your nature) But even if Kafla is that strong is shouldn't be a surprise. Fusion is stupidly broken. Remember when SSJ Vegetto ROFL stomped Buuhan, The combo of Majin Buu, Piccolo, Ultimate Gohan, and SSJ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

They evolved differently (which is more of events being different than rules being different regardless). That doesn't mean their "powers" work differently. That goes beyond simple evolution. You're basically telling us to not think about it because they're from a different universe. Why? How? What...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

The Universe 6 Kaioshin straight up says that the Saiyans in his universe have undergone a different evolution than the Universe 7 Saiyans in episode 37. Whether the argument is about the SSJ transformation or not, I don't know how much clearer you can get that these saiyans are different. Well the...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Shhhh. Don't mention this. It's too logical. What's logical is that being from a different Universe means they can function differently. None of your bias matters in this case. Sorry, but that excuse is just a lazy way to justify bad writing. And I'm not sure where people are getting this "differen...

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

It's not enough time thanks to the really dumb decision to start the show so soon AND making it weekly instead of seasonal. Wouldn't filler episodes with really low production value and staff give the main staff and content enough time to get on track ? It might give them a big of help, yes, it's m...

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

Wouldn't getting rid of some of their lesser successful projects lead to better results ? They probably do want that like we do but based on how far and few between those scenes are, there are clearly still issues preventing them from getting to that. No. Toei can't just become "Dragonball the anim...

Toei is one of the biggest animation companies in Japan while DB is one of the biggest franchises, How can they not find the $$$ to hire anyone else ? He just told you that it wasn't a money issue. You can't use money to buy time and you certainly can't use it to buy more staff that simply isn't th...

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

This is a great example of Super being inconsistent, so people who think Super is consistent should really sit down and think about this because one episode with Jiren it relies on power levels and the next with Caulifla and Goku tries to rely on skill and tactics. There's no consistency. While the...

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

Them doing it because of hybrid genetics is essentially what the story, Toriyama, and Daizenshuu said so what's the issue here? I don't know anymore to be quite honest, this is why I don't like to do paragraph long debates, because I lose track easily. I am not a smart man. If the series explains s...

It was in one of the Daizenshuu 4. Here's the insert: The tailless second generation are super ultra child prodigies. Saiyan genes have an extraordinarily good compatibility with Earthling blood. Because of this, when the two races are mixed together children with formidable power are born. Particu...

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

Officially, Goten and Trunks got Super Saiyan easily because they're tailless hybrids. Which actually relates to the U6 Saiyans who evolved to not to have tails. It was also stated that as Saiyans get stronger, their tails naturally stop growing since they don't need them anymore. In short, Saiyans...

They only reason I'm applying real world logic of kids to fictional kids of the same age group its because Trunks and Goten act exactly like that, highly emotional immature children taking everything to seriously. Trunks and Goten attained SSJ off-screen yes, but nothing suggest it was any differen...

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

I'd rather have the Z's "Tatatatatas" Than the Supers. But the examples i posted was just an indication of which repeated framed actions I prefer.

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

Z fights had the impact frame like...most collisions, thus creates weight to the blows. Z fights also displayed blood / battle damage which adds further tension. Some Super fights have been pretty good but they JUST DON'T LAST LONG ENOUGH. Like others have said...it's just "tatatatatata" with that ...

Oh you're free to not like them as much as you like. I won't fault anyone for not liking characters. Within reason. But I see the point of easily obtaining SSJ as one of the main points for dislike. That's what I'm arguing. If you're upset at their screen time or not being interesting enough for you...
