Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Jiren specifically worked because he was the EXCEPTION, the one guy stronger than GoDs but unrelated to godly affairs. Broly kinda-sorta worked as his equivalent in U-7. Moro, I believe, has been used incorrectly: he would be easy to fix, just say him eating Vegeta's and Goku's divine ki increased h...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Opinion(all forms are supposed to be in their ToP time-frame unless otherwise specified): 0.02 = SSGod 0.1 = Normal Blue = Golden Frieza I subscribe to the "Blue is about 5x God" faction. I suppose "Complete Golden Frieza" might be slightly stronger than Normal Blue... but in the manga there is no s...

Perhaps. I kinda hope so, it's been a while since we got non-canon SS2 units.

"Poor depictions of women in media is okay if its financially successful, LOL"
it's capitalism, baby.
and I would argue DB doesn't do much of a good work depicting men, either.

Re: Why are they refusing to create a female main villain?

What's the issue in wanting DB to do better than is already doing? I've been asking this for a few years now. The old adage "if isn't broken, do not fix it". ESPECIALLY in something as formulaic as DB, which made its fortune on its being formulaic. Adding the so-called "female touch" and "female pr...

Dragon Ball is fine even without female authors.
Agreed. It's a Shonen manga. That should say enough.
"Shonen" is the TARGET, unrelated to the author's sex. I mean, half the success of Rumiko Takahashi are extremely popular shonen manga.

Space and time war arc announced for March.
the complete title is "New Space-time War".
"New" is integral part of the title, though I wonder what it does refer to as the old one?

Re: This is the greatest take on Jiren I have ever read

Jiren's solitude isn't out of fear of being BETRAYED. it's out of fear of LOSING PEOPLE He became strong so he wouldn't lose anything anymore, but also kept people away because even with his power he still did fear losing them if he were to get closer to them, be it by death or leaving him. Check hi...

Beerus thought a fusion between 17 and 18 would have been very strong, as they are twins and thus would have decent compatibility, so imagine how strong a fusion of the same person must be in that regard!
like, say, Super-17?

Re: This is the greatest take on Jiren I have ever read

His entire character is built around your 3rd bullet point, that he wanted to avenge his Master, but he gets betrayed by his friends/other students who betray him. Unless I misremember, which is possible, his master dies at the same time as some of his friends and when the others leave him. the par...

Re: The Super Re-Read

We know "Twin universes" have very similar evolution. But nowhere we were told "unrelated" universes couldn't have limited similarities. Thus the logical conclusion is that we were presented not with inconsistencies, but new information: "similarities can exists among different universes, but Twin U...

If Jiren really cared so much about reviving his master that's MANGA Jiren Which is a completely different character with a wildly different backstory. We never learned Anime Jiren's wish, which is probably for the better. I mean, I think in the anime it was heavily implied that he wanted to revive...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I like this hypothesis. And it can be reinforced by the fact both merging techniques were originally made for non-transforming races, resulting in "imperfect" transformation abilities after the merge.

Re: Is Super Saiyan Blue redundant?

Yeah, everything they did with Blue they could have done with God.

But God's design wasn't well received so they made Blue. You could easily replace Blue with God(or viceversa) and there wouldn't be any difference in the story

Goku pressing the buttom was a last resort and wasn't a deus ex machina.
Yes, it was. Literally AND theatrically: a Machine brings a God on the Stage so it can Resolve the Story.

The main twist is that while Dragon Ball is usually a Comedy, this narrative arc was instead a Tragedy.
