Re: The main reason why Goku, and Vegeta are so stale now personalitywise...

And from day 1 Goku is an example the Flat-Character arc. He's not designed by nature to go through any significant change at all. Goku does not have a flat-character arc by any definition of the term, and a character does not need to be "designed by nature to go through significant change" to deve...

Re: The main reason why Goku, and Vegeta are so stale now personalitywise...

You can't expect further character development from characters that already completed their arcs in 90s. Any new change would have resulted in the loss of what made them so iconic. And from day 1 Goku is an example the Flat-Character arc. He's not designed by nature to go through any significant ch...

A transformation has never made me lose interest in a villain faster than Moro's most recent.

Re: The main reason why Goku, and Vegeta are so stale now personalitywise...

I see their characterization in Battle of Gods less as character development and more the end result of their development. I feel like you could even make the argument that BoG is a character study of Goku. Beerus forces him to confront the notion that there will always be someone better in a manner...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Scenario: Goku doesn't train his tail enough for the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai and Kuririn ends up fighting Tenshinhan.

Given Ten's at least spoken with Muten Roshi by this point, does he still reform? Or was Goku that final push he needed?

Re: When should the rematch Goku vs Beerus take place?

If it happens at all, I suppose the end of the modern series would make the most sense. It's what kicked off Dragon Ball Super, after all. That said, if Goku and Beerus do get a rematch, I hope Goku loses. I think that would be a more poignant ending, especially if Goku uses that loss as greater mot...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I'm so sick of Goku's Turtle School Gi and Vegeta's Cell arc armor. Their RoF redesigns were a step in the right direction and I'll never forgive the injustice they were done.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Bra will get absorbed, but because she's Vegetto's kid, she naturally inherited the ability to protect herself from being assimilated into Buu. So, while everyone on the outside is celebrating their victory (well, as much as they can given the casualties), she's going to destroy Buu from the inside...

Re: How much do you think Gine impacted the Story ?

Gine's basically just an answer to a trivia question. There's no real meat to her character, and I can't say she adds anything meaningful to Goku or the greater Dragon Ball mythos.

Re: Is it possible that Future Goku didn't keep his body ?

The original manga goes out of its way to establish why Goku keeps his body both times he dies in the main timeline, which I feel is enough reason to believe he doesn't keep it when he dies of the Heart Virus. The first time he keeps it is specifically because God wants him to train with Kaio. The s...

Re: Which character in which saga would you say is the best written character in the Franchise?

Tenshinhan in the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai has always stood out as a very well written arc to me. The fact so much is done with Tenshinhan’s character in so little time always impresses me.

I’m also a big fan of Goku’s characterization in the Saiyan & Freeza arcs.

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

The idea that Goku and Freeza having no pre-established relationship being a bad thing is just ridiculous to me, as it completely ignores all the dialogue between Goku & Freeza during their fight– dialogue that develops a very discenerable and easy to understand dynamic between the two characters th...

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

My reading of Goku not eating is that training with Merus is making Goku more divine, suggesting that he’ll probably have some degree of control on Ultra Instinct sooner rather than later.

But I doubt it’ll be something that sticks if that’s the case. Goku not eating just feels wrong.

God, Universe 13 is one of the worst ones too. This is going to be miserable. I just want to get back to the tournament, but the fact the battle royale is STILL going means there’s still such a long way there.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

It seems that Vegeta has polarizing, contradictory examples of being both a prideful prince, and a clear coward. He does, because Toriyama had just made the decision to keep him around instead of leaving him a dead villain. Once Vegeta got resurrected, his personality had to change to be a regular ...
