Re: Should the Super manga and anime divert into completely different stories now?

BORUTO is doing something similar, with the anime using episodes between manga arcs to develop and explore characters, side characters and settings, while also changing parts of the arcs adapting the manga to fit with the differences: some characters reacting differently because they went through ch...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Granolah got the highest Power Level this side of the gods, but he's still very unskilled with it. Which fits the theme of the arc: Raw Power Is Not Everything. Which fits the "Jiren is a stronger fighter than Belmod but Belmod, as a GoD, had tricks that keep him about Jiren if it's not a straight f...

that's more about Beerus being tsundere and not wanting to praise Vegeta directly

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I think the problem comes from Beerus being the "end-game" enemy, thus "unsurpassable", while ALSO giving a reasonable degree of credibility as threats to previous enemies. If you keep going "this guy is a chump compared to Beerus" multiple times it kills the hype. So they had to find workarounds, f...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Frieza simply got insanely more powerful since the ToP which is said by the director himself. I must have missed that tidbit of info. Truly the movie doesn't do a good job at portraying that, but it DOES makes sense: Freeza went from Namek to Golden in 4 months, it makes sense he'd grow a lot in po...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

People forget Jiren is not a simple brute, either. Yeah, this is why Jiren is superior to Broly. Not only is he stronger, but he’s an infinitely superior fighter compared to Broly, who is just a brute. Super Broly's fight style evolved in the course of the battle, but yeah, he's mostly a brute forc...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Muten didn't use UI. He used his REGULAR SKILL. It's the whole point: he maximized his skill and managed to use it to defeat a stronger enemy, which is basically one of the point of martial arts. Because of his expertise and experience, Muten's techniques end up in the same direction as UI. That's a...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

while in the manga he didn't (stated quite a few times during the arc). Well, he did (technically) train by taming the Cell Juniors who were stated to all be as strong as they were in the Cell Arc. So with seven SS1-tier fighters. Explaining why he went from Cell Arc Piccolo tier to Universe Surviv...

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

In the anime continuity, which Heroes follows, Super Saiyan Rosé is Black's version of Super Saiyan. So, just like there are numbered Super Saiyan forms, there are also numbered Super Saiyan Rosé forms. I've been saying this for years, it's nice how Heroes finally did it. No, even in the anime Rosé...

So Base Vegetto BoG is SS3 Goku tier and Base Gogeta is Goku Blue tier
Also, in the manga Vegetto was able to inflict damages to Fused Zamasu in base.

Re: What are the things you like about DBS Anime?

Hype. The anime was really, REALLY good at selling HYPE moments and scenes. I mean, who would even think Kaiohken could be HYPE? Lots of Black Saga moments JIREN, who might be taken as boring by some, but he was sold as an invincible WALL and delivered Toppo goin GoD on Freeza's ass in general: HYPE...

As a SSG he thinks he can beat a powered up Beerus.
he was wrong. Thus I wouldn't use it as valid information.

Re: It’s literally such a SHAME how LAME and WASTED Videl became.

Videl got beaten to show Babidi's emissaries were utter bastards, by having them beat down the weakest of the characters

It wasn't because she was a woman, but because she was weak.

Re: It’s literally such a SHAME how LAME and WASTED Videl became.

In early Dragon Ball, martial artists were shown to be either immune to gunshots, or could easily catch them, i doubt Videl was weaker than pre 21th Budokai Goku or Bora. Sure she was weaker than pre-21Tenkaichi Goku. He started as massively superhuman even compared to most martial artists. Before ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

It's worth to note it might not have been Tori's intention to add the comparison in the movie, but a choice of the scriptwriter. Still, it was there and the movie is canon for both anime and manga. That said, I stand my theory: Jiren is a stronger MARTIAL ARTIST than Belmod and Beerus, but Gods of D...

I loved this episode But it does feel kinda dated to see Sign Goku when main continuity Goku already has access to the perfected form and is improving on it. yeah, but Main Continuity Goku is also wasting it by jobbing.
