Re: So what's Toriyama up to then?

The Zamasu arc is basically an arc about an evil Kai, we've never had something like that before for example. Wasn't there an evil Kai in AF ? Evil Goku is as fan fiction as you can get. The concept of Trunks going back in the past for help is basically what he did in the Cell arc. Vegetto was incl...

A Change of Heart

Throughout the run of Dragon Ball, there have been many characters that we've all as fans no doubt hated for one reason or another. Whether it was the overbearing nature of Chi Chi rubbing us the wrong way when we were kids, the cliched writing of Jiren, the attitude and power growth of Kale and Cau...

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

Why would Goku even spare Moro? This is a pure evil monster who wants to devour the entire universe and even challenged the Gods. Don't give me the "Goku doesn't want to kill people" argument, because he is more than willing to kill those that he perceives as beyond redemption. In the Future Trunks...

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

Is anyone else getting Freeza vibes? And not in the good way? Goku stomps him, asks Jaco if he's still on the death penalty in the GP, Jaco says yes, and that's when Goku says he's going to fight as an Earthling and Beerus says he has a bad feeling. Are they playing up the 'Goku will spare him' plot...

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Goku and Xeno Vegeta with their newest Limit Breaker form Vs Super Saiyan Blue Goku with Kaio-ken X20 and Super Saiyan Blue Evolution Vegeta. I would say the Super Saiyan 4's probably considering their power comes from God Trunks and SSB Vegeta and Goku. And apparently in the an...

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

Is anyone else as hyped about next month’s manga chapter as I am? I can hardly wait already, even though this month’s manga chapter has yet to come out officially tomorrow. I’m already stoked for the next! I just want to see the HISTORIC moment of Goku attaining and mastering the fully completed Ul...

Maybe Moro could be salvaged with charismatic voice acting. I wonder who would be up for the part?
Since people have been double down on the comparisons between Perfect Voro and Cell, I say they should put all their chips on the table and have Norio Wakamoto do it

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

For the most part GT didn't form entirely new arcs. As in, what makes the Golden Freeza arc in Super have anything to do with the Tournament of the Destroyers and what impact did the FT arc had on the next major arc, the ToP? One CAN make the argument that the FT introduced the idea and plot point ...

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

Still, as you said, Toriyama really is the only one who can nail down Dragon Ball. I wished he could have written himself, in detail, how Goku achieves Ultra Instinct in the tournament. Which kind of baffles me when people say Goku has "mastered" Omen. With the lessons he learned in the ToP, and th...

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

Esca becomes the new guardian of Earth, and Dende fuses with Piccolo. I would have predicted this if the spirit fission technique wasn't in Moro's endless arsenal of moves. I actually really like idea of Dende fusing with Piccolo. Though I really like Dende so I'd hate to see him go. But I could de...

Am I the only one that thinks Moro's abilities he got from 73 now being permanent because reasons...is fucking dumb? I thought it's only his own ability that's permanent (the backup he left in 73), but not the one he copies from other fighters (like from Vegeta or Piccolo) Correct me if I'm wrong. ...

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

This would be OK if it wasn't Freeza, one of the franchise's greatest villains. If you want a story where the villain isn't that big of a threat, then introduce someone new who fits that idea, not Freeza. The other issue is that it was following BOG. If you're going to follow up such a great movie,...

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

The Pilaf gang should've been removed, I'll give you that, but that's honestly the only negative I can think of. That may be enough to take away from what the movie does, which is fine, but it doesn't for me. I agree he was treated bad before RF, but the difference is that most of those were Toei o...

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

Battle of Gods and Broly are easily the best stories in all of modern Dragon Ball. It's no coincidence that Toriyama wrote them. BOG is a masterpiece, no arguments there, but Broly ? It included minus, one of the worst things to have the DB name, it turned Freeza into a joke, Broly's character was ...

Is it me, or is he poorly written after all and only served the purpose of training Goku for UI and introducing a non-Universe aligned Angel?

Yeah, I'm really not seeing that? Vegeta got knocked around some by literally THAT Moro that you're saying he backed up into 7-3, but he was fine??? He power drained THAT Moro and dunked on him. He was holding his own against a UI Omen+ level opponent and then you're saying add ssj3, maybe, level o...

No, that happened for other characters observing Vegeta. You understand that other people believing Vegeta did enough to redeem himself doesn't mean Vegeta thinks that, right?

I am genuinely envious of anyone who can actually feel enjoyment out of this arc. Really. I am. I am exhausted reading this arc just because of how little I care about anything going on. It's reaching fanfiction levels paralleling Super Dragon Ball Heroes now and I don't even know or care how it wil...

Goku was consistently screaming and powering up while in UI Omen.

Goku was consistently speaking, screaming, powering up w...
