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

So let me get this straight: If your guys’ theory is correct.. Then Toei will adapt Super’s Anime version straight from the Manga as opposed to from Toriyama’s outline like before? But Toriyama will still be giving his outlines, but only to Toyotaro from now on and not anymore to Toei and its anima...

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

When it comes to DB, I don't think we're going to get something that will air for years on end like how the 3 original anime aired 500+ episodes non stop, but I also don't think we'll have to wait as long as something like Kitaro. Instead we'll probably get 50 or even 100 episodes every 3-4 years. ...

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

But, honestly, the only thing we know about the future of the anime is that there will be a movie. And it will be 100% written by Toriyama, which is why Toei haven’t already done one themselves. In that case, Moro will most likely be skipped and at best adapted in the future after the movie has air...

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

And what does this information say? That Toyotaro's gonna be the main man and his ideas are gonna be adapted? The Geekdom-vid appearently says TOEI hasn't gotten any new scripts from Toriyama, and basically therefore they have chosen to invest in other anime like DQ, Digimin for the time being, bec...

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

Given Geekdom's new information regarding the creative shift allegedly going down behind the scenes, I actually wouldn't be surprised if I was right in my earlier post when I speculated that maybe they're waiting for the manga to do it's thing so they can adapt it later.

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

One of the main aspects that created hype in the first half of Super was that basically nobody knew what was going to happen, as the manga was leaping behind. If the movie is planned let's say in summer 2021, when are they going to bring the animated version of Moro arc? I don't think knowing about...

The DB Jump YouTube channel has just uploaded the commercial aired at Jump Festa: https://t.co/pXIih5Tye7?amp=1 It honestly seems more and more like they are pushing the manga.

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

Now we have a different situation. The franchise knows more than ever how important Toriyamas name is and how much it sells. Back in the day with GT they were naieve thinking they could pull this one off without using his name. If Toriyama no longer wants to be actively involved with the franchise,...

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

The original author has authority by law over these things. This is in contrast to how in the US the original creator usually sells all of their rights to corporations. If the original creator doesn't like something in an adaption things can get very difficult for the adaptation team. This is why S...

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

In Japan the original creator maintains final say on projects and products. Shueisha still needs to ask Toriyama for permission, even if he might give them a lot of leeway. Shueisha is the ultimate rights holder (they're the ones who even created the Dragon Ball department). Toei holds the right fo...

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

As a mark of respect, they'll ask him, also because they still want to use his name (therefore they need permission), but practically at the end of the day Toriyama can't hold anything back concerning the production of a new DB-anime. I forgot exactly how it went but one of Toriyama's old editors m...

Re: Dragon Ball probably won't bother going past EoZ, or even close to it; it may very well just ignore it...

The story will probably never end. Although I'd wish Toriyama at least writes a 'proper conclusion' from his side when his involvement definitely ends. I don't think Toriyama's involvement will ever end as he'll most likely always be credit as a draft writer or supervisor due to his name recognitio...

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

You really think so? We have no idea if Toriyama was happy or not with Super’s anime. Fact is, he always talked well about the manga meanwhile he publicly criticized the anime. And guess what, currently Super is only alive in manga form, with Toriyama still helping with it. I doubt he cares much ab...

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

[ I feel like Toriyama lost trust in Toei after the disaster Super was, and has thus decided that in the future they will have to go back to adapting the manga as they did back in the 80s. Don't speak things you have no clue. As much I think Super is not good as it could be, it's far from being a d...

Re: What transformations and techniques would you like to see?

Sylver means completed UI without really mastering it, Goku cannot use it at will but he temporary achieves a limit-breaker state that surpasses the Gods. White could mean truely mastering UI (using it at will indefinitely) and becoming angel level. The angels have white hair as well so yes it's a r...

Re: Does the fact the DBS anime is not returning make you loose intrest in DB?

The animated aspect still adds main value to Dragon Ball as it filled the crib to give birth to its biggest success. It's one of the most typical shounen of all shounen anime. Reading a manga like Death Note non-animated or seeing it animated makes only a small difference in comparison with reading ...

No, since DBS didn't interest me in first place and i'm still watching DB/Z/GT and i'm on this forum for those series. Never was here for Super and never will be here for Super. I'm watching DB for almost 20 years now. Why would existence or lack of such thing as DBS had any impact on it? If i ever...

The final hope for DBS to return in 2020 has somehow faded with the announcement of the new Digimon anime, which will air on FUJI-tv in April. What does that mean in relation with your personal commitment to the franchise? Do you guys feel less invested and intrested now there hasn't been an anime f...

Indeed it seems Goku and the gang are getting the superhero- / Mickey Mouse- / Bugs Bunny-treatment. Because the franchise wants to stretch out the story indefinitely and make 'full advantage' of the available time period, characters seem to stay untouched by time. Eventually we'll "probably" go pas...
