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

It's all marketing strategy. They have a movie literally a matter of weeks away from releasing internationally, if they announced Super's return to TV, that would dominate discussion, and they don't want that. DragonBall Super was announced 10 days after the premiere of ROF. Indeed. One could argue...

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

I'm convinced Super's coming back because of those inside sources mentioned in Ajay's video. I don't think they'd lie to him. Of course DB is coming back in some animated version. They would never have performed all these redesigns for one movie and then simply close the books. The questions remain...

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

So basically, outside of the movie, what we have to look forward to is... the manga? I guess? Which comes out monthly in short chapters and is a mixed bag at best. sigh And yeah, I get it, we weren't promised anything, but this is still incredibly disappointing. I think that's a healthy attitude. J...

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

2020 is an Olympic year for Tokyo and Japan, Goku is announced as mascot, maybe they'll do another movie to catch a broad international audience when Japan is in the spotlight? The anime will probably return, but it could be in 20xx, we haven't got the slightest clue when. I wouldn't focuss too much...

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

'Next project' is referring to the new manga arc, it doesn't state anything about a new anime. No, and that's why we dunno if it is only the manga. Right after Nozawa read these words of Toriyama, the new manga story was discussed in the Jump Festa panel. And it's in essence Toriyamas next work. So...

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

I still think there is no better promoter for the franchise than a long-running anime. The merchandising sales actually grew since the end of the anime, which at this point isn't really a good thing for the future of the show, since it gives them much less urgency to start a new tv run. That's beca...

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

Seeing things from their point commercially: if they can keep the franchise running for a while by 'only' giving us a manga, a movie once in a two years and more games ... who can blaim them? It costs a lot less while the earnings keep coming anyways. I still think there is no better promoter for th...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

I think the senzu bean-reference is to make the scene when Broly goes 'Ikari' look even more dramatic. Like 'how the hell are we ever gonna beat this guy? ' I mean, it could just show that he thought he was going to get beaten up or that the fight may get tough from here on out? Doesn't necessarily...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Watched a subbed video from the Vegeta Vs Broly fight. Broly is out of the water after Super Saiyan God Vegeta's blast. Vegeta then asks Goku ''Hey Kakarot, did you bring any senzu''? Did anybody else find this weird? Vegeta was winning up until this point, he didn't get any major beat down and the...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

That's fine, but not everyone is you so you should understand why people would want something better, less bland and overused. Original Broly was not one-dimensional and bland. He was a victim of his own power. And if you don't believe me, check the scene where Paragus actually put the circlet on h...

Super has really only had one true villain and that is zamasu.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Nope, in the contrary, that's exactly what makes this Broly intresting. WTF would we be with a mere copycat of a character we have seen in THREE movies already. Here’s a thought. They make an entirely new character instead of rehashing movie 8 which came out like 23 years ago purely for fanservice....

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

The blame is ultimately on Shueisha, Toei, & Bandai for overexaggerating one single trait when marketing or referring to Broly. Instead of focusing on his other antagonistic traits, his sadistic, cruel nature. Nope, in the contrary, that's exactly what makes this Broly intresting. WTF would we be w...

Re: Base form Goku (ToP) stronger than ritual SSG Goku?

If this is what you mean by 'linear and predictable', then in my opinion that does not mean much. If True Form Freeza did so well against Dyspo because it was predictable, why would not the same argument go for Blue Goku? Moreover, you totally contradict yourself here. You referred to Dyspos speed ...

Re: Base form Goku (ToP) stronger than ritual SSG Goku?

This isn't a matter of the strength/speed correlating linearly that's entirely not the point. When I said "linear", it was in reference to describing the way that Dyspo was fighting, his movements/attacks were described to be linear and predictable. That is why Freeza was able to do so well, becaus...

I’ve never felt that- Things like- it doesn’t match the narrative- are good reasons to disregard what is being directly told to us. Bad writing doesn’t decide canon, nor does the incredulity of the presented narrative. The universe being governed by a literal child - and no one doing anything about...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

We can't judge TOEI / Toriyama on something they didn't intend. This isn't classic Broly as he does not exists in Toriyamas universe. It's a brand new character with some characteristics of the old one and branded 'Broly' because of nostalgia. It's not a pizza and shouldn't be seen as one, it's anot...

Re: [spoilers] What do you think is the narrative reason for Beerus being kept ahead of Goku?

Even if Completed UI Goku surpassed Beerus shortly during that final push against Jiren, which remains a theoretical possibility, this doesn't mean Goku is stronger than Beerus. He only surpassed him very shorty in a form he hasn't truely mastered. And even if Goku masters Completed UI, Beerus can e...
