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

Overall decent to meh chapter I guess. Nice seeing these guys again after so long tho I can’t say I find this all too interesting when it’s just grunts with very little substance to them. Unfortunate Goten and Trunks have been shelved until further notice. They’re not very interesting characters but...

Re: Hit vs Dyspo was the most strategic fight in the series?

Most strategic? Maybe. Hit, 17, Kuririn, and Goku get their share of fights with more tactics or strategy involved than your average DB fight

Re: Am I The Only DB Fan Who Likes Jiren?

I would’ve appreciated Jiren more if he actually came across as a genuine superhero who just happens to be someone Goku has to fight. Unfortunately, the series decided to make him this brooding, trash talking loner with an extremely cliché backstory, and an even more cliché philosophy that essentia...

Re: Does DBS Have Replay Value Comparable To DB/DBZ?

I think it does to an extent. Most of it isn’t for me but FT Saga all the way until the end I’ve re-watched a few times. I can’t rewatch all of Z as Cell saga gets too boring way too fast. Early DB and most of RRA is pretty meh anime wise to me.

Re: Characters you like but everyone else hates

Jiren or Cauli qualify to an extent. Both have vocal hatedomes but are overall pretty popular characters

You’re not. He is a polarizing character but he is overall a pretty popular character introduced from Super

Re: When did you start liking Vegeta?

I loved him a lot on Namek. Very fun character there. I stopped liking him and became apathetic towards him after that though and I’ve had nothing but apathy for him ever since

Re: DB Anime Vs. Manga Goku: Whose Stronger/Tactical? Win A DeathBattle?

Anime Goku would destroy manga Goku. - Anime can perform SSBKKx10 in U6 arc. Later Goku is shown to be able to overpower Hit without KK, suggesting a x10 increase power-wise compared to his U6 arc strenght. - In the same range of time, manga Goku has just managed to get Perfected Blue, which is onl...

Re: When Will We Ever Get Out of the Boo Fight - End of Z Rift?!

Yeah, in terms of characterisation and aesthetics it's remained the same throughout the entirety of Super's run. Question is, if they do decide to go past EoZ, where do they take it from there? If they continue with the same stale formula except with older faces then what difference will there be? ...

Re: For those dissatisfied with Gohan in the Super anime, state your reasons here.

Unpopular opinion here, but I actually liked how Super handled Gohan. Yes, he was out of shape in RoF, couldn’t participate in the U6 tournament for plot reasons, was left out of Future Trunks’ arc for yet another plot reason (let’s be frank, Gohan would have completely changed the narrative in bot...

Re: Spies that Analyze us Fans for the Dragon Ball Room? [Question]

Feedback is important, but fandoms aren't monoliths and lately I've been wondering if the Dragon Room is only listening to the loudest voices in regards to the Brolli movie. It wasn't bad, the visuals were beautiful, but I would've liked something with more plot, adventure, and dialogue in addition...

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

I have to agree with this. I am still interested in this arc, as I think it has potential to be good, and I would want to wait until it’s over to fully judge it as a whole, but so far it’s feeling like a filler arc, and as you said it’s very fan-ficky. The slow pace also doesn’t help. The last two ...

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

This reads like fanfiction. When Toriyama writes Dragonball, he introduces a bunch of new shit, paying no reverence to the established lore. He, of course, tries to tie things in so that it makes sense, but he brings in new ideas. This is all really self-referential stuff with nothing new. Remember...

Anyone else bored of seeing just Goku and Vegeta fighting? Man I've really grown tired of them and their attacks, I hope Toyo has some other characters tag in DB as a whole nowadays I’m pretty bored wih just them. I also don’t care about the dynamic between the two either. I do enjoy watching Goku ...

I'm gonna have to agree with the notion that Beerus has always been a lazy fuck piece of GoD, consistent in portrayal throughout the manga. Trying to reconcile manga Beerus with his anime counterpart is like trying to reconcile manga Goku with anime Goku. Anime Goku is a bigger buffoon overall. On ...
