Re: Everything Dragon Ball Super Did Right!

Again, why should Dragon Ball Super want to do these things? There are more ways to create engagement in a story than to hang the threat of death over everyone; why is the threat of death specifically the default understanding of what creates enjoyable suspense in a story? They do not have to want....

Re: Everything Dragon Ball Super Did Right!

To say this again (we already did this whole exchange as recently as the complementing 'What's Wrong with Super' thread), you know (and probably always knew) that everything will be okay in the end for all of Dragon Ball generally , so this is a weak criticism; it's the nature of the beast when a) ...

Re: Everything Dragon Ball Super Did Right!

-I might be one of the few fans who was glad of the time period Toriyama chose. I always prefer a story be left alone when it ends so I'll take a midquel than a full-fledged sequel that changes the ending. I guess it gives some comfort that whatever happens it'll revert back to the status quo of th...

Re: Everything Wrong with Dragon Ball Super

The whole '' Goku's show '' thing. If people complain about the lack of activity of the DBS support cast or the excessive focus on Goku, have they even stopped to think about the GT? Goku is at the top and no one even comes close. Even Vegeta can only manage to stay with him in the last arc. Goten,...

Re: Everything Dragon Ball Super Did Right!

For the manga, certainly, I think the theme-work is strong and consistent for the 3 main arcs we've had so far - Toyotarou has a talent for taking the themes of each arc and turning them over in ways that expose different facets and, when the work is at its strongest, also uses them to showcase cha...

Re: Everything Dragon Ball Super Did Right!

However Present Trunks doesn't have this issue, he enjoys fighting and training even when there is peace time. It is only in EOZ that he quits training and fighting for unknown reason. Although the reason is now known it is their family that stops him. He is still a kid though, a spoiled kid, who s...

Re: Everything Dragon Ball Super Did Right!

1. Introduced female SSJs for the first time in actual show, not just video games. Execution is different topic, but at least we got them after many years. 2. Except for RoF and pre-ToP episodes, Gohan was done right. The same applies to GT Gohan as well. Argue how much you want, but much beloved Ce...

Re: Isn't the Super Saiyan transformation just a rip-off of Launch's gimmick?

Interesting theory although super saiyan hair color was changed to make drawing easier, as for manga artist you only have to draw outlines instead of filling it with black. I don't think it has anything to do with Lunch.

Re: Everything Wrong with Dragon Ball Super

Same here. After seeing BOG I thought things could only get better, as not only was it a great movie, it opened the door to all kinds of new possibilities. That amazing movie was unfortunately followed by Minus and RF, then a rushed Super announcement soon after RF's debut. It was then I knew BOG w...

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

the difference is that both are in the same "group" ssj ... and since the ssj god as such is only to obtain "god ki" that any race can have with a training ... it was explained that goku and vegeta trained this as they explains it They really are not. SSJ God has nothing to do with actual SSJ besid...

Buu's Fury (GBA) - Being able to fuse anywhere, collecting the exhibits or just wandering around wrecking criminals. It's joyful to spend time with this gem of a game. This game is so great and polished. The only problem i have with it is difficulty, it's way too easy. While first LoG game was too ...

Re: Kanzenshuu's favorite arcs. UPDATE: The results

If he was intended to be sympathetic than the anime failed so hard. He was obviously meant to be disliked so i guess he was executed right if we look at him from such perspective? You can tell he was written to be annoying with his contant "ningen" talk and narcissistic monologues. You can't feel e...

Why didn't he suggest it with super buu? It seems that none of them knew what was going to happen ... since Goku went with the idea ...

What if Shadow Dragons were created from the overuse of the Super Dragonballs? What would they be like and how powerful would they be? If we assume that size of dragon balls have anything to do with amount of negative energy they can keep, then obviously those dragons would one shot everything in f...

I don't think the dub version's bad, though some of the lines make it very obvious that this is the same guy who plays Master Roshi. As for adding the Oozaru filter, my guess is consistency? They have deep filtered voices in the dub, no reason Baby shouldn't. If something, this is inconsistency. Hi...

Does anyone know if Baby has any special interactions with the characters in the game yet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHND2cJwrf8 Tbh it's kinda disappointing. Has few dialogues with Gohan or Trunks that are more one-sided (no one really recognizes him). Most interesting part is probably mocki...

Re: Everything Wrong with Dragon Ball Super

Super is simply unoriginal. They play too safe being afraid to change anything about most of main cast, change their designs or even actually age them. Goten and Trunks actually look even younger than in Buu saga despite 6 years time gap. Transformations? Basically everything is either lazy recolor ...
