Re: How were the Trio of Danger able to compete against Base Goku in the ToP?

I know that one of the most common answers is going to be "power scaling ruined by Toei" or something like that. But the fact is that one of the trio, Basil, was dominated by Mr. Buu, who is far weaker than SSJ3 Gotenks. Meanwhile, Base Goku is apparently (and I said apparently here) stronger than ...

Re: Gohan 's "main character" status and Toei's fascination

gohan would have worked as protagonist because he is popular although maybe it wouldn't have lasted long Toriyama said things didn't go that direction because he didn't feel that Gohan was interesting enough to take on such a role. I don't think he should've been pushed to the side like he's been i...

Re: Gohan 's "main character" status and Toei's fascination

gohan would have worked as protagonist because he is popular although maybe it wouldn't have lasted long Being popular and working as a protagonist are two different things. an important part of that is that the character is loved by the spectators or fans ... gohan just like goku we saw him grow a...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Goku vs Caulifla/Kale was better than Goku vs Kefla (even thought the latter was pretty good). I really liked how Goku was teaching them while beating their asses and how he manages to hold his own without transforming (right away) because he's just a better fighter. This fact is actually what made...

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

It's interesting to look back and see how often authors recycled material from before. Toyotaro does it a lot but Toriyama shouldn't be exempt from accusation as he's taken shortcuts himself. https://i.imgur.com/i1RihS4.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ut0Oym0.png https://i.imgur.com/208jpwQ.jpg https://i.i...

Re: So Piccolo can suddenly sense SSJ Blue now??? Wtf

The problem is... No such statement was ever made. We are completely left on our own to speculate.. For all we know, the writers have completely forgotten about the whole “God ki cannot be sensed by mortals thing”, and they just don’t give it a thought at all. Which is the worst case scenario, and ...

Re: So Piccolo can suddenly sense SSJ Blue now??? Wtf

That might suggest Piccolo became strong enough to sense Goku’s energy in SSGod and SSBlue forms, but he can’t do that with Goku moving at hyper-speed. The problem is... No such statement was ever made. We are completely left on our own to speculate.. For all we know, the writers have completely fo...

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

Wow. Look, I'm not even going to humor why it isn't remotely common for siblings - adult siblings - to threaten each other's lives with serious glares (regardless of whether they intend to actually kill each other) because one of them mispronounced a name. That's an irresponsible rejection of how r...
