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

Goku was consistently screaming and powering up while in UI Omen. I fail to see why people keep saying stuff like "Toyotarou doesn't understand the principle of this form of this form" when Toei was the very first to butcher the form concept. Goku was consistently speaking, screaming, powering up w...

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

Omen wasn't stronger than Moro. Moro was stronger the entire time. I have a feeling that Toyotaro doesn't understand UI at all. The way he writes Goku when he's using it, both based on how expressive and chatty he is, and now just turning UI into an all out brawler form like SSB is supposed to be......

Re: Dragon Ball Lore

It's by definition impossible to not bring personal feelings and bias into the equation when it comes to art. Art is by its very natural personal and emotional. I'm not really the type to call film and television "art", so maybe that's why I don't think of them so subjectively. Where do you get thi...

Favorite "non-climax" fight

When I say non-climax, I mean none of the big tentpole battles of the franchise like Goku vs Frieza, Gohan vs Cell, basically the big battles of the franchise that the arc wasn't building to. And why is this battle a favorite? This doesn't have to be limited to just any of the in-series or canon fig...

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

What seems really stupid is to keep bringing stronger than GoDs characters and have Beerus fishing like he is too cool for school. This is the 3rd enemy that is said to have surpassed the GoDs. He couldn't take part vs Jiren, ok; Broly's growth was gradual so it was okay for him to not take it seri...

Re: Who is a Mary Sue in Drago Ball.

That;s a really good point. Can't believe that went over my head. May have to give the movie a second watch. Z-Broly did have a love of black comedy. The absurdity of a 8 (9?) foot tall goliath using Goku's torso as a trampoline still makes me giggle during rewatches. Shame we didn't see more of th...

Re: Endings

Or, I dunno, it was a popular movie so of course it would gather interest based on name brand recognition and not because there was an actual need or desire to explore Bueller's world and life? The closest we've seen to what you want is Dragon Ball Heroes. Which is hot garbage so... Why tune in to ...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

I'd argue that Pokemon is the biggest example in ABED's favor. It keeps trying to expand its lore and Pokemon and it's honestly fucking awful for it. Pokemon is stale. Another example is current Star Wars. It has a lore and powers it tried to expand with the new trilogy. It fell on its face and suck...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

It is what you said. "He's old and he don't look like Elder Kai" Right...that's not me saying that Gowasu should look like Elder Kai. That's me saying that he doesn't look like Elder Kai... Almost like there's a reason he doesn't... Because Toriyama liked to create original designs back then and no...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

Gowasu had a more unique design than Shin. He's old and he don't look like Elder Kai so why does Zamasu have to look like Shin? It is what you said.

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

I'm so happy you gave that any consideration. Nope, you don't do that. Disappointing, but not surprising. Because that's a copout. Or you're just incapable of listening. But not in this case. As evidence shows there was never a need for Zamasu to look anything vaguely like Shin. It doesn't have to ...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

Kid Buu is the same as Super Buu except he's a kid. That would be a foolish thing to say. Calling someone "kid" despite not being it. "Mentally" maybe? Arguably. Though the only difference to me between Buu and Super Buu is that the latter can talk. Did you ever see anyone criticize Bardock by sayi...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

Creativity isn't coming up with something out of thin air. It's usually recombining existing elements. Toriyama's work is often taking archetypes, stock characters, genre tropes, and putting them in a blender with his weird sensibilities. You are 100 percent correct. I would like to point to anothe...

God, your ignorance on something this simple is incredibly funny. I'm beginning to believe that the reason he isn't getting it is BECAUSE it's simple and there's something in that premise that isn't registering. Similar to how Toriyama likes simple concepts and reverses. IE strong characters being ...
