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

I get the feeling this arc just getting started. I like it. Its possibly my favourite arc of DBS. Wouldn't be saying much since the only arc I really like in DBS to any degree is the first one; but that could easily change - depending on how this one continues and ends. I was kind of hoping instead ...

Re: Things/concepts Toriyama/Toei ruined..

Death - Not only has its impact been diminished but so have both the drawback and permanence of death. It all started with Namek where new dragon balls were introduced, you know the ones that can revive a person ANY number of times... Sure that had a trade-off, but not for long since they "upgraded...

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

This new story is looking pretty good. Plus, we got an original villain for once! One with a pretty sweet design! My favourite part of this story arc so far is the possibility of removing DaiKaiohshin from Boo. I wonder what that will do! And whether or not he'll still be good if/when they do, since...

Re: Was God Ki a Mistake?

I don't think it was a mistake. It's a good concept that makes sense. And I like the introduction of the god of destruction too, it makes sense to have him as part of the balance of life. Where I think the god ki idea starts to get a little messy is, like OP said, it automatically makes Son Gokuh an...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

I'm not disappointed about the announcement of the bluray stuff. Not getting it or anything, I already own Dab, DBZ, & DBGT on DVD, but I'm not disappointed by the announcement. Super to me is already back via the manga and that's what's important imo lol

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

There's nothing that says he had to learn the same lesson from Whis. And that is my problem with it. There's no need for it. He didn't have to learn the same lesson over again, so why did they even do it at all is my question. Well, other than Toriyama forgetting he'd done it already. But that's as...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I know he learns it there, but what I'm saying is it wasn't the main lesson he learnt there. He learnt not only to sense ki but to hone his own ki. And the reason for teaching him that is to teach him about ki itself. Like you said, its something he didn't even know before going to the temple. Mr Po...

Also, clearing your mind and senses so to react to movement - instead of seeing and responding to that - bas...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

In Super? No he learns it from Whis in the Super manga too. That's why before going into this "ultra instinct" he remembers Whis telling him the same thing he told Vegeta earlier in the manga. He did that training with Whis, it isn't filler. Unless of course you mean his training at kami's temple is...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

So the manga will get a good 7 chapter jump before the TV show starts. I gotta say I'm not quite excited for the TV show coming back as I am for the next chapter to come. I usually prefer the show to the manga because it was always more entertaining for me but with DBS its different. The Super manga...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Nope! On Kaio's planet, in the manga, he learns kaioken which is a technique learnt through controlling one's own ki; in addition to this he learnt to control genki as well in learning the genki dama. No filler required to know that. He demonstrates this during his fight with Vegeta in the manga, an...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

He always shows improvement after training. Being calm and tranquil and quick is vague. The issue is you haven't shown the skills he possesses in Ultra Instinct were what he learned when he trained at Kami's. Yes, he trained at Kami's temple in the manga, but most of the training wasn't shown. I ge...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Even in the manga, he went to kami's temple - though it wasn't really shown - and he still displayed much improvement and new skills in the tournament matches against all his opponents leaving everyone to wonder "what kind of training has he received?" Plus, the DBS manga agrees that the training he...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

He got that far in the fight and was able to get into the position to be able to do something like that because of his hard work and the training he'd received over the years. A lot of time during that tournament was spent showing how much Son Gokuh had improved and demonstrating the skills he learn...

I definitely agree about what was done to Trunks' time line. I thought it ended perfectly after the fight vs Cell. What need was there, really, to mess with it again? You know, other than Trunks-fan-service....

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Oh these are fun. I hope nobody gets mad at me but I don't like ultra instinct. It's one thing for the design to be lazy, the designs in Super for new "transformations" have always been that way. But the thing I dislike most about 'ultra instinct' is its concept. It really all started when Whis was ...

Re: Is Dragon Ball Your Favorite Anime Ever?

I don't really watch anime. I got into Dragon Ball yrs ago when it was on TV, and I watched Digimon when I was a kid (although I've indulged quite a bit since Tri. came out). That's really about it. So I suppose that, yes, that would make Dragon Ball my "favourite anime." Lol

Re: What was the purpose of turning Goku back into a child in DBGT?

I noticed Son Gokuh is hungry a lot more in GT, and I always thought that his power took a toll on his small body and made him require more rest and upkeep than he used to. The Instantaneous Movement thing is obvious. How easy would it be to find the Black Star Dragon Balls if Son Gokuh could basica...

Re: Ranking the sagas of Dragonball

I tend to bunch the "arcs" or "sagas" - or whatever you wanna call em - into bigger chunks when I rank them. I like them as more overarching plots rather than neatly dividing each encounter and fight into segregated parts that make up a whole. 1) Middle of DB (Ep 29 - Ep 101) 2) Beginning of DB (Ep ...
