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

I've waited for months to give an opinion on this arc, just to see where it was going...Gotta say, so far I'm having a hard time to get into it. The premise is ok for the most part aside from a few nitpicks and contrivances, but Moro has to be the blandest attempt at an antagonist. So far, he's just...

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

Besides, I hate the idea of an entire arc solely being the result of some invincible manchild’s own personal amusement, with none of the characters being able to do anything about it. I personally can’t stand stories like that. That just makes it seem incredibly frustrating and needlessly cruel. I ...

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

You didn't see how Freeza used Frost to eliminate U9? He also used Tien and Krillian as sacrifices to gain Frost trust too. This demonstrated Freeza's devious persona. Kale wasting Uni's etc... Even Hit was better developed in the manga. Overcoming his weakness of relying on time skip and actually ...

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

I think you should save this comment for when the TOP for the manga is actually finished. It's possible you may eat your words after next chapter. Yeah even if this ends up being the most amazing chapter in existence, it wouldn't suddenly make them eat their words when the rest of the arc is crap. ...

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

If Dragonball Multiverse did it, that's good enough reason to never ever even entertain the idea of doing it. Before someone tries to "gotcha" me with the whole concept of a multiverse, well that's just a stupid point. The way the official material handles other universes is so drastically differen...

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

Personally, I thought there was more conceptual intrigue in the U6 Namekians than a modernist interpretation of the Broly archetype -- one which we're getting in yet another movie focused on the actual character anyway. We know very little about the Universe 6 Namekians or their development as a so...

Re: Anime Jiren Vs. Manga Jiren: Which Do You Prefer And Why?

When it comes to backstory, I find that Anime Jiren's does a lot more to inform his character and overall fits better with what the moral is of his story. In the anime, Jiren is the driving force of his origin, the one who becomes the centre of events that would mold the man he would eventually bec...

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

Not really the same. Cabba called Kale a 'Demon Saiyan', while the card seems to used demon as a general term, not a title. The usage is the same and it's too convenient to be called a coincidence. A Saiyan said to be called a demon, and a "demon" Saiyan. M8 Broly called himself a demon. They're de...

I know. Still doesn't make the retcon sit any better with me. As a matter of fact, now that I think about it, i don't think that retcon was created for Zamasu as it never came up in the anime, which tells me that was something Toyotaro chose to do for Merged Zamasu...which amounted to nothing becau...

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

Well, the reason the potara one was particularly stupid is because both versions(manga and anime) have the plot point of Kibitokai using the dragonballs to defuse. Everyone in their right mind assumed that this was setting up for Vegito's return, which would make a lot of sense in order for Vegito ...

Re: Between Goku, Vegeta & Gohan Who Do You Think Has Received The Most Amount Of Undeserved Power-Ups/Transformations?

Gohan, without question.lol I think Goku and Vegeta put in more than enough work to earn whatever forms they have aside from UI for Goku and Majin Power up/Ssj2(?). I'm not counting the power ups Goku got in Dragonball because most of them were largely insignificant increases in comparison to his Z ...

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

Hmm, I like this explanation and it's pretty consistent with what we knew already about ki leakage and stamina drain - concepts that were in DBZ for Super Saiyan Grades. Stamina drain is not just exclusive to SSJ3, but to every form. All forms have their own stamina drain but SSJ3 had the worst whi...

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

completed ssjg doesn't have an aura or anything. It's sealead energy. That's why it doesn't make any sense he would have stamina problems after Vegeta said Goku mastered the form and uses it at 100%. I agree. I think that the whole stamina drain is a trope that should've been dropped after ssj3. Th...

Thoughts on this? https://img.fireden.net/a/image/1537/64/1537640739321.png I thought the whole point of "mastered" ssgss was to seal the aura...Now I'm confused.

Re: Anime Jiren Vs. Manga Jiren: Which Do You Prefer And Why?

Manga Jiren by far. Toyotaro actually capitalized on his concept by making him a much more heroic character than Goku and adding pathos to his past. I appreciate the dramatic ironies inherent in his character, both in his very mission (which humanizes him) and in his goals. He's not a good characte...

Re: Anime Jiren Vs. Manga Jiren: Which Do You Prefer And Why?

You realize all those are cheap gimmicks because the animators didn't want to/have the necessary resources to come up with anything more compelling, right? It was one of the biggest cop outs from the animation team that I've ever seen. I agree to an extent, but it DID something. No one in the serie...

Toyo's Bardock doesn't look that bad. https://dragonball.news/news_images/toyotarou201810_01.jpg I really like this. I think it's my favorite Toyotaro drawing. It's one of the few pics from him in a non standard pose where the proportions and anatomy are spot on. No weird Toyo necks, no limp arms o...
