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

...Is it so unthinkable that Goku would be intrigued by Moro's power? Unthinkable? Of course not. Intrigued? Sure. But impressed by his potential, impressed so much that he finds it a waste to kill such an evil being, intrigued so much so as to lament that if only Moro weren't an evil wizard and tr...

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

Even the argument that he doesn’t train and can wield that much power doesn’t work for me because he literally has magic. [...] There is a reason he got where he was without training and I don’t see what is so impressive about it. This. Moro is an ancient sorcerer or Wizard or something. The story ...

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

I feel like this discussion is sort of skirting the issue that Dragon Ball has never really been about "how much energy a body can naturally sustain" until Ultra Instinct was introduced, and how the notion of being impressed by a stat like "theoretical Ki maximum" is neither something these characte...

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

Just read the chapter. It's preposterous how much of a copy of the Cell Arc this is. I'm disappointed and honestly this doesn't feel like Toyotarõ. Sure the dude copied a bunch of panels from the manga, some plot was reminiscent but nothing like this. In a few pages he summarized the latter bit of ...

Re: A Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc Rewrite - The Outline (Almost Done)

I'm keeping it as is, for now, though I tend to agree with what you're saying, it also sort of works into my "Goku gets too pissed off to maintain UI," thing I've got going, because... I think this arc is too early for Goku to be AT-WILL mastering Ultra Instinct, so... I get what you're saying, but...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

Not joining whatever the above argument is, just adding my own two cents: Oh, riiiiiight, it's not titled Goku, the Earthling because of any sort of referential, self-reflection, deeper-thinking on Goku's part, or of the series' in general... it's titled Goku, the Earthling because this mother f**ke...

Re: A Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc Rewrite - The Outline (Almost Done)

This is way way better than what we got. Bearing in mind, my outline is a purely derivative effort, because the arc really did start off very well, I thought, and had a lot of potential, and even throughout, all the way through to the end, the original, official story had a handful of very resonant...

Re: A Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc Rewrite - The Outline (Almost Done)

Ah, I forgot to add Vegeta knocking Omega/7-3 out of Moro, but you can easily imagine that happening before the sealing and Final Kamehameha.

I'll edit it in properly tomorrow.

Re: A Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc Rewrite - The Outline (WIP, Lengthy)

Added the Denouement spoiler. Pretty much done now, I just have to truly wrap things up and give a sense of where the arc would theoretically go from here.

You get a good sense of the way my rewrite is going to end quite differently than the official manga.

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

Personally, I'm shocked to see so many people who hated the spoilers turning around almost or entirely 180 after reading the real chapter and saying that, overall, they really liked it? It... didn't really change any of the garbage that we saw in the spoilers? It doubled-down, in fact, on some of wh...

Re: A Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc Rewrite - The Outline (WIP, Lengthy)

I honestly would've preferred this. Seriously, I felt Merus's death was not written well, especially after the whole planet merge. What a waste of a character. Wait, why are Moro's fallen soldiers on the battlefield? Shouldn't they be in prison? No, no Moro still wishes the Galactic Prison destroye...

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

They are definitely going to have to nerf UI now. If there is a movie I can see Goku maybe winning a major fight with UI but they can’t have him always rely on that. The villains are going to have to be overpowered too The procession of new transformations was way too soon I'm almost wondering if G...

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

I miss the days when Goku would look at Baby running for his life and come to the obvious conclusion that letting someone like that live would just put everyone in the same situation they just barely got out of, before blasting him into the sun. I'm still holding out a slim sliver of hope, I don't ...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

The arc finally found a narrative theme, I guess. And it's the most superficial thing I think I've ever seen. :(

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

I've read the summary. In all honesty, and this is just my opinion, but I hate almost every single thing about it. I fully stand by what I said earlier that the spoilers we had already seen are terrible and... without getting into spoilers about the rest of it, personally, I think the whole chapter ...

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

Neither Beerus nor Whis are going to do anything. They are entirely pointless and irrelevant in Super at this point, which grates on me.

Maybe I'll get proven wrong, but I very highly doubt it.

Re: A Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc Rewrite - The Outline (WIP, Lengthy)

It's pretty good, but I think it's a little too complex for DB standards, especially the setup before Namek. I should amend "the setup" to make clear that not all of that is supposed to happen on panel/on screen. As it stands right now, "the setup" is more like notes to myself of stuff I wanted to ...
