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

So pretty much everyone shows up except Goten & Trunks :( Also it seems like Goku is having trouble getting back to Earth but doesn’t he know instant transmission? looks like Goten and Trunks are protecting 17's island again. And Merus took Goku to a place where Moro couldn't find him, so he's prob...

The "new fusion" is probably 2 or more of Moro's minions fusing. Maybe the 3 girls? They were seen to fight as an unit in one of the previous chapters.
Honestly it being one of the villains makes a lot more sense to me.

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

I hope these spoilers are true. Yamcha and androids? Great! :D New techniques? Finally! I hope to see goten and trunks as well. These spoilers are always true but he injects a lot of his interpretation into them so they can be misleading. That being said these seem more straightforward than usual. ...

Re: Vegeta’s Spirit Control training on Yardrat is pretty much the ultimate potential unlock

Don’t see how that has anything to do with the content of this thread. But to answer your statement off topic, this time, Vegeta fans have far more of a reason to assume that Vegeta may finally surpass Goku legit this time (if Whis’ statement/revelation to Vegeta in episode 16 of Super is anything ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I don't know what counts as big hits with figures, but there's way more than that when considering merchandise. It might not even be actual toys. Pen-holders, t-shirts, sticker, various cards, slippers- anything with the DB logo. What counts is the over all sum I reckon. I do know that but there ac...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Those count too. I didn't split up the sum, I just recall the chart that came out a couple of months ago. I think Baggie even confirmed that sales are doing way better than they should considering there is no series. My point isn’t that they were doing badly just that there hasn’t been any real big...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Like it's been already stated, DBS merch sales are at an all time high without there being a series -> this is an ideal business situation. Max profit, minimal cost. Now they can focus on their other IPs like Digimon in order to increase merch sales there too. We could maybe see a series once sales...

I have a lot of other anime to watch at the moment. In fact I am following more series this season then I have in awhile but it still boggles the mind how poorly Toei and Bandai Namco treat their most profitable franchise. I guess we will only have video and mobile games retreading the same content ...

Re: Hosting a Q&A panel with Vic Mignogna

You aren’t just consuming media. You are helping to host him
at a con where most of his bad behavior was present in the past.

Anyone with an ounce of integrity would not host this panel. And shame on the con for hosting him.

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

I honestly don’t want Vegeta to get UI. I am kind of tired of him getting everything after Goku. I hope they continue with this individual paths for Vegeta and Goku.

Vegeta is never going to surpass Goku but let him have his own unique strengths and skills.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Personally I am fine with a movie too. That would be better than nothing And yes I know they said they “working” on a movie. But that is not substantial enough for me. I just want some type of official announcement to look forward to. A weekly series is of course more fun because there is constant n...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

So apparently they did a live dub of the manga champa arc instead of the Moro arc. Even that seems a bit anti climatic.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Yeah a panel of just Nozawa and Horikawa reading lines from the manga is cool but not something that needs to be a “big secret”. It’s also obviously only truly special for people who are actually there.


But at this point I wouldn’t put it past Toei and Bandai to hype up the fandom for nothing.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Of course there is no guarantee a new series or movie would be any good but at least it would be something to look forward to and discuss (debate) not the same old rehash of stuff over and over when it comes to figures and content coming to games. I guess there is Heroes and the manga. Heroes plot j...

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

While I don’t want Goku or Vegeta’s training to be wasted I also think either a solo Goku or Vegeta win would be a bit anti climatic at this point for me. Though I would love a Goku and Vegeta win with them having opposite strengths that complement each other as mentioned above. For all the time Gok...
