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

With these two comparisons in mind? I don't think so. Also, Vegeta exclusively uses "Evolved" Blue against Moro in Volume 13. You're right, I didn't remember the back cover with Vegetto and I actually never noticed this subtle difference in Blue's tone in these two volumes (5 and 13), nice catch. A...

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

Volume 17 cover (better quality): https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FFBhaVFakAAAq5l?format=jpg&name=small Love this cover. Is there too much stuff going on the cover? Maybe, but I don't see it as inherently bad. All the characters are beautifully drawn and I liked the focus on the Heeters. In these recen...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

We know from various interviews now that they hold group meetings to review several ideas for each film (one ended up being Broly ) and manga arc (we ended up with Moro and Granolla). Who's to say some of those ideas weren't "explore another universe" and such? I'd say it's actually more likely tha...

Re: Do you think the Freeza thing will be resolved?

Freeza coming back into any kind of main villain role or being killed off again would feel so pointless, though. He was obviously brought back to add another (permanent) element to Dragon World and its expanded cast. The only major misstep since his return was showing an on-screen planet attack at ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Manga Chapter 78 - Official Discussion Thread

Good chapter, but I really can't see a way to extend this arc any further. The battle with Gas should conclude in Cereal, and Elec should get his second wish granted which should hopefully spice things up. I don't see a way for Freeza to enter the plot at this point, but I hope I'm wrong. Mostly I’...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Manga Chapter 78 - Official Discussion Thread

"GaS HaS nO ChArAcTeR DePtH" It's Dragon Ball, people, none of the villians have depth. Vegeta was just a bad guy who wanted to rule the universe for no reason; his character wasn't given any depth until after his villian arc ended. Freeza was also a bad guy who wanted to rule the universe for no r...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Manga Chapter 78 - Official Discussion Thread

So Bardock defeated Gas, but Gas and Elec didn't discover that Granolah and Monaito were alive until years later. I think this may already be hinting at how their fight unfolded. It will likely be shown at some point later, but it is possible that Bardock has somehow tricked Gas, despite the fact th...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Manga Chapter 78 - Official Discussion Thread

IIRC, Toriyama mentioned in a interview that Bardock is in the upper ranks as far as low class warriors go. But he is not able to become a mid class warrior So yeah, I guess he must be strong for the standard of a low class Saiyan. We don't know the extent of this strength, but Gas doesn't look that...

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

The pacing feels the same to me, but we get all 4 chapters combined at the end of the month instead 4 small weekly chapters like we did with the original manga. Try reading the original manga one chapter per week, see how it feels. I prefer one big chapter at the end of the month, like American sup...

Re: People who have managed to have extremely low contact with the manga.

It's the opposite for me, I think I never fully watched the DBZ anime. After reading the original manga, I think I just can't stand the pacing compared to the source material (even ignoring the fillers). I can also feel more impact and be more immersed in the story with some scenes in the manga than...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I don't think Gas is stronger than Freeza, at least not at the moment. Elec plans to have Granolah and Goku/Vegeta kill each other (and he believes the Saiyans are the only ones capable of beating Granolah after his power up), so Gas isn't at that level yet. I also believe that Elec is manipulating ...

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

Granolah is a 50-year-old man, stubborn and hot headed. He openly told Monaito that he was going to take down Frieza and his goons, so regardless of his concerns I doubt the Namekian would be able to prevent Granolah from performing whatever job he wants. And knowing that, it seems especially a bad ...

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

The Heeters appearance in the past is also somewhat forced, seems to be there to justify a whole of chapter of Gas vs Bardock; which is my prediction for the next chapter. The Heeters' connection with the destruction of Granolah's planet had already been revealed at the beginning of the arc. First ...

I also think this will backfire. By telling the truth, Monaito wanted to stop the fight and prevent Granolah from killing himself and killing Goku and Vegeta. But knowing he's been working for decades for the same group that plotted his race's extinction (and his mother's death) will likely make him...

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

We still haven't seen Granolah's reaction after the whole story has been told, but I hope the chapter addresses why Monaito didn't tell him this before. It's easily possible to guess why (especially now that we know Monaito is aware of the Heeters' participation behind the scenes), but it would be g...

I hope the Heeters changed visually during the years and weren't dread wearing pirate guys looking same for decades. During chapter 69 we got a glimpse of their (younger) visuals at the time of the massacre. Not sure how they will be portrayed in this chapter, probably something similar https://zjc...

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

I like Granolah, but I hope he dies at the end of this arc. It was his choice to sacrifice his entire life in exchange for power, so I hope he suffers the consequences in the end. A bittersweet ending would suit him. Somehow he would avenge his race by defeating the Heeters or Freeza (which were mai...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

I get they're probably holding back the big character sheets for Jump Festa, but it feels a bit tone deaf to showcase Karin and Dende at something as big as NYCC. Honestly, from the statements I doubt that we will even see anything big at Jump Festa except for new character sheets. It's only 2 mont...

I mean, yeah, you can say that Vegeta's development is largely complete in DB, and what we're seeing in Super isn't necessarily pivotal or groundbreaking for his character (in terms of totally changing his status quo), but I still I think it's a facet worth exploring in his character. Except for the...
