I can accept some degree of fanservice, but something like purple haired Mastered Ultra Instinct Super Saiyan would kinda jump the shark for me.

Re: Is Moro Really Dead/Gone???

He might have 'hidden' his Ki-essence inside the remains of the robot with his magic, so he could 'escape' unnoticed.
Maybe a little far fetched but not entirely impossible.

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

That was true of the original manga as well, the main goal was always to make money, not tell stories. The original manga maybe dured longer than originally planned because of its success. And Toriyama did include some fanservice he originally may not have planned. But it was still a clear story wr...

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

What is it promoting right now? Nothing, there is no anime, therefore it is no longer promotional. The manga used to come out after the anime, it didn't contain complete story arcs and was supplemental to the anime, but it's evolved into a stand alone thing that has complete story arcs contained wi...

Re: Thoughts on Moro's character?

We had several one dimensional 'i'm just evil'-type of villains in the past. Toriyama however seemed to write and depict them as menacing in the original manga. Moro came of as pretty menacing in the beginning, but he lacked that status in the latter part of the arc, apart from some 'better moments'...

But this doesn’t mean the manga is promotional. I'm afraid it is. It may not seem a very romantic idea, i agree, but we actually get new content because of promotional reasons in the first place . That's why we have different versions of the same continuity to begin with. From sales perspective, th...

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

Why couldn't a hypothetical adaptation be somewhere 'in between' a classic manga-anime adaptation and the manga and anime doing their own thing? Manga and anime were based on the same plot outline from 2015 onwards. Toyotaro however did use some of TOEIs concepts in his manga adaptation, that weren'...

Re: Who else here got into Dragon Ball with original series?

I meant the first time in CLASSIC OG DRAGON BALL. I put it in caps for emphasis. I dont care about his Z death. But to tell you the truth if you indeed meant that death I ALSO missed the episode back when it first aired! All right, now i gotcha. I should have known this, this is an original series ...

Well, to be really honest with you, when i first was watching the series, i believe i unintendedly missed that episo...

Re: Who else here got into Dragon Ball with original series?

Dragon Ball had not yet reached the popularity of later and now in the West. Not 1 or 2 episodes and the story ended. No, a long-term continuity with characters that evolved with it. I can't imagine what it would be like to start with DBZ. You really miss a lot of character building. Looking at DB ...

Re: Does Toriyama's subverting of power vs appearance gets old to you?

Same with Moro ... For a part.
His weakest form (old goat) was far menacing looking than the babyfaced 'fusion' of Moro and 7-3, which did not really look menacing at all.

Re: Is DBS Krillin On Par With Namek Freeza?

Even taking into account Gokus base power rose substantially during DBZ, it's possible, as stated by Beerus, he could still not defeat Freeza in his baseform during BOG. Let's assume in a best case scenario he is still slightly below Freeza at that point. Thereafter during ROF both Goku and Vegeta t...
