Re: Endings

I'd prefer another arc like the Zamasu one than a battle royale, but the possibility of a ToP 2.0 arc is definitely there. We'll probably get 2 standard arcs after the Moro one before a tournament. If you take Broly and whatever new movie they're currently working on into account, that's 5 stories ...

Re: Endings

The TOP was a battle royale with 80 fighters, and universe ending stakes. How exactly are you supposed to top that? Instead of having 80 fighters, they can have 25 this time (5 per universe), allowing the 4 new universes to have fully developed characters instead of the cookie cutters we got in the...

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

I'd love to see a compelling character arc for Vegeta, but I would be disappointed if this is played as straight as some are proposing. I think a lot of fans are going to be disappointed with how things will turn out, as the chances of Vegeta doing everything himself are very low. He'll no doubt be...

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

I'm looking extremely forward to the climatic battle between Vegeta & Moro It feels weird to be excited for Vegeta when he always plays second fiddle but I hope all that finally ends. So far the arc has been really good (with a few missteps here and there), so hopefully they can keep the momentum u...

Re: Endings

Did anyone not believe Goku would defeat Piccolo at the 23rd TB? Based on the previous 2 tournaments, I think a lot of fans might've thought he'd lose again. I really can’t imagine what the point of another tournament would be. That would just be repetitive at this point. One thing they could do to...

Re: Endings

Is there anyway to give a proper finale to the Super era, that would still take place before the epilogue with Oob? I think there's 2 arcs that can end Super in a grand way. The first being a tournament between U7 and the 4 universes that didn't take part in the TOP. The second being a war between ...

Is that Cooler's Revenge cover art a Toei illustration or a Funimation pan? I forgot how nice it looked.
I think it's a close up to the first scene in which cooler attacks Goku after transforming.

Re: How do you ''see'' the forum?

Both kinds of topic are discussed so that's how I view it. Sometimes you've got a fun topic about who's your favorite character or arc, while other times topics that go deep into how a part of the franchise is produced.

While I'm usually the first one to say story is most important, it's important to remember that DB is a story about fighting so the qualities of the battles do matter quite a bit.
I know the fights are important, what makes them important however, are the stories connecting them together.

Re: Endings

While DB will find a way to pack in more characters, more fighting, more transformations, they're just all derive of things DB has already done and done much better. The problem isn't the fights and transformations as much as a lack of an engaging story to go with them. When we got a major fight in...

Re: Endings

I don't think that IF Super gets there, they will redo the ending of Z and make two versions of same event in anime continuity... The manga has 2 versions (I guess more like an extended version) so the possibility is there. Super has already mentioned Uub twice so we're going there, it's just a mat...

Re: If Naruto was a Dragonball character, how far would he go?

I could be wrong, but I think Naruto's author Masashi Kishimoto said that Naruto at the end of the manga was as strong as Nappa.

Re: Endings

GT for all its flaws provided a great ending. Not so much to GT itself but for the brand as a whole. It felt "final" while also leaving enough ambiguity for years worth of speculation. I feel that Super could easily recapture that, but we'll have to wait and see. That depends on Super going past EO...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I think the fact that Kai felt the need to cram in an opening montage about all the stuff that happened before Raditz came along, should be a solid indication that even Toei agrees that the first half of the series is important, even if it’s not as popular. Of course it's important, it's the first ...

Re: So Piccolo can suddenly sense SSJ Blue now??? Wtf

Didn't everyone start sensing Blue's power mid way through Super, despite it being established to not be possible ? There's definitely a lack of care when it comes to Super's writing, as it's constantly contradicting itself, even on things just established.

Re: Endings

The last thing you want is for a story to end with several lost plot threads that were never resolved or to have a story abruptly end or have an ending which is so jarringly tone deaf. I think another thing worth mentioning is timing. You could have an amazing ending, but it can lose a lot of its i...

This isn't exactly breaking the 4th wall, but Kefla (or was it Caulifla ?) saying it was great to be born a Saiyan due to their limitless potential compared to other races.

Re: The Baba Arc should be rolled into the RRA Arc

That would be much more sensible than the approach FUNi has taken with needlessly splitting up chunks of a larger arc that are supposed to go together as one whole like Namek or Cell. You've got things like the "Raditz" saga or the "Captain Ginyu" saga , each being 4-5 episodes each. It's over comp...

Gaffer Tape/MistareFusion’s method of splitting the manga into a total of 10 arcs should be the standard.
I don't know why that isn't the normal, default split as anything else is just splitting an arc into parts.
