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

Super's power-scaling generally makes no sense, so chances are there's no explanation. Roshi holds his own against Freeza's army even though he's Raditz-tier at best. Let's not forget: Tenshinhan trains everyday non-stop since the start of the series. Roshi spent years without any training and surp...

Re: Is there a reason for why the DBS Manga can’t become weekly?

Also keep in mind that the exact opposite just happened with Naruto 's successor manga: Boruto got moved from weekly serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump to monthly serialization in V-Jump just a couple months back. Just a minor nitpick: while Boruto indeed was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump , it ...

Re: Was a opportunity missed for Canonize the movie villains as characters of Universe 6?

No. Canon Broly was already stupid enough (and twice, if you count whatever was Kale). I could say that both Dr. Wheelo and Tullece share some traits with Goku Black and Zamasu, and Garlic Jr. shares his DB granted immortality with, again, Zamasu, but it would definitely be a stretch... right? You s...

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

Boruto also has the main writer of the Manga checking up EVERY episode to make sure they are coherent, especially in terms of characters motivations, abilities and setting. Ikemoto himself stated that the anime is as canon as the Manga because this. I know the producers and Ikemoto himself has stat...

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

If Toei did adaptate the manga, we would get something like the Boruto anime, just a bunch of fillers. (For record, I do found Boruto entertaining enough on its own, but it's a bit lackluster as a sequel) Boruto also has the main writer of the Manga checking up EVERY episode to make sure they are c...

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

it’s monthly and I don’t think I ever heard of an anime adapting a monthly manga. I think attack on titan has a similar page counting and it’s monthly. One punch man can be considering monthly too , but page count varies ... What is hard to heard is an anime who is not adapting a manga or a novel ....

snip Hit vs Dyspo was just a normal fight for the franchise standards, it just had some stupid explanation that is really convoluted.

Re: ToP Arc: The Worst and most boring Arc of Super so far?

I have to say that the fights, while certainly dabbling with some relatively new concepts in areas, could have stood to show some more diligence and accurate interpretation of its mechanics. One example would be Hyssop's glaciation of Vegeta's hand. Why couldn't exposure to such a frigid encasement...

Re: Which Would Be The Better Ultimate Saiyan Form? SSJ4 or PSSJB?

The monkey fur, eye liners and cholor scheme look ridiculous for SS4, i would go as far as to say it looks hideous. I share the same opinion with you. Well, except for the eye liners. They are cool. which of these two supremely powerful transformations do you think is the best to call the true ulti...

Re: ToP Arc: The Worst and most boring Arc of Super so far?

Repetitive storyboard and animation-wise. Shockwaves in the air; rapid-punching while the background rolls swiftly; people flying through 3 or more "mountains". This stuff is in every fight. C'mon guys, I'm not hating Super just because of it. It is extremely average and it pains me, since Dragon B...

Re: Just saw Kikuchi in Gamera

Ogon Batto (1966) : the subtitles are in spanish… But looking at the first 20 / 22 minutes we already have an essential idea of the music (Note the « hissing « pattern accompanying Ogon Batto's appearances on bats) I had some curiosity of watching this, now that I know Kikuchi was the composer, my ...

Re: After hearing the DBZ Kai: Buu Saga soundtracks in DB Super, did your opinion about them change?

I still think they are really bad. Most of the battle themes sound exactly the same with early Super stuff. Extremely forgettable.
While I don't like Sumitomo's score at all, ToP arc at least had some spirit

Re: Unreleased Kikuchi music not done by anyone else yet

Wow, the most interesting one is M1613, I never noticed it had those extra seconds. Awesome, thank you very much!

EDIT: This one is missing a few seconds. As heard on DB episode 32 and DBZ episode 43.
