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

While nothing amazing I'm still enjoying the arc so far. Vegeta vs Moro was decent enough and there was some pretty good art through out the fight. Moro himself is okay as of right now and while he might not be the most original villain ever in DB I do appreciate how he's not yet another super buff ...

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

Outside of learning that Toriyama is working on something new this panel was pretty damn disappointing.

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

Even though I've been down on the manga for a while now I'm really liking this new arc so far. I'm glad Toyo is able to have a chance at making his own arc instead of adapting ones from the anime.

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

It's been a hot second since I've last posted on this fourm but I've caught up to the recent chapter. This and the previous chapter were just alright, overall I found Toyo's version TOP to be pretty mediocre. But even though I didn't care much for the manga TOP arc I am interested in this new one. A...

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

The manga still hasn't changed my mind that all this arc ever had going for it was the fights and nothing else. Sure the story might be more consistent in this version but I still find the contents of it to be pretty subpar. To sum it up I find both versions of this arc to be bad but for me the anim...

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

Yet another mediocre chapter this month and easily the worst one for me thus far. He's been really dropping the ball in regards to the climax so far. Things I disliked: .I'm not even a big fan of Vegeta but I feel like he deserved a better fight than what he got. Having most of the fight happen offs...

Re: Things that grind your gears

Well of course he was, he never did anything even remotely impressive, and FOUR of his teammates came of as being stronger than him, including that lame ass 17 that hadn't been seen since the Cell saga and somehow became SSB level. Gohan was a disapointing waste of screentime in the anime and never...

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

Assuming we got three chapters left in this arc I'm gonna take a guess about what I think will happen in each one of them. Next chapter will probably be the end of the Vegeta and Toppo fight as well as the start and end of the fight between Dyspo and 17. Also willing to bet that Toppo will go God an...

Re: Things that grind your gears

What's wrong with that? Freeza could reach SSJB level by training for just four months. If Freeza could get that strong in such a short time then why not Gohan? Gohan has been training for more than four months. If Freeza can be SSJB level then it only makes sense that Gohan is too. Also I'm pretty...

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

I've seen people say that Roshi = Jiren or Roshi > Hit in the strength discussion thread. I agree with the suspension of disbelief. I also had to suspend my disbelief a bit to believe that Gohan could improve at such a fast rate. Oh the strength thread, don't really go to that thread much but that'...

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

Don't think I've seen a single person complaining about Jiren and Roshi being even in regards to the fight so no clue were you go that from. From what I've seen most people are taking issue with Roshi being able to dodge so many of Jiren's attacks considering that even a suppressed Jiren should be m...

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

The reason why I don't post in this thread much anymore is due to the constant fighting that goes on. I've noticed that there are some posters in this thread who get pretty defensive when other posters don't speak well of the manga and will go after them. Not that there's anything wrong with wanting...

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

I think 2 chapters to the end of the tournament.. the reason is the 15 min stated at the beginning of this last chapter, and it seems that every chapters covers 5 min . So we have 10 min remaining aprox. September: toppo dyspo vegeta out October : final clash November: wishes and after tournament D...

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

Whelp can't say I was a very big fan of this chapter. My biggest issue was with Gohan vs Kefla, not with the powerscaling but with how Toyo handled the fight. Prior to this chapter I thought we might get a team up of 17 and Gohan against Kefla or hell even Roshi and Gohan vs Kefla, the possibility o...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Read the spoilers and boy they sure are something special I'll tell you what. I'm not even sure whatever explanation Toyo will give in the chapter such as Roshi having some kind of UI or Jiren suppressing himself will be satisfactory.

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

I'd say the only reason that the manga version of Jiren is somewhat better than the anime one is that he started off better. But as far as I'm concerned both versions are overall terrible and uninteresting. And as far as tournament antagonists go in this series Jiren is easily the worst of the bunch.

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

Dude, 17 is only ssj3 tier. He's no match for kefla...AT ALL. Kale alone..it's hard to gage her power but she's at least blue tier. Kefla was stated by Vados to possibly be as stronger then Jiren. 17 gets one shotted by kefla and it's not even close. Like I said before I don't doubt that Kefla is s...

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

It would be funny if Roshi becomes the Android 17 of the manga. Doubt that will happen but I would love it if it did end up happening. 17 is fodder compared to kefla though, 17 would get one shot by ssj god, much less kefla. And gohan strength remains to be seen. I was think ultimate gohan is as po...
