Re: When Have You Ever Actively Rooted for a Villain/Antagonist in the Series?

What's impressive about Toriyama's writing is that even during battles with some of the absolute vilest villains, he can still conjure some small sympathy for them. It's mainly down to the push-pull dynamic of battles in the later half of the manga, where the heroes and villains take turn dominating...

Re: Do you think the Freeza thing will be resolved?

It was convenient for Freeza to be revived just in time for the Broly movie, as it gave casual movie-only audiences a sense of continuity. Each movie carries over major characters from the last. Beerus and Whis return in RoF in more minor roles, then Freeza does the same in Broly (with Beerus and Wh...

Re: Should non canon characters become canon?

Can you imagine the uproar if the exact opposite happens... Toriyama ends whatever "final" Super project with the Pilaf Gang unwittingly wishing to become old again while somehow wiping everyone's memories of the past however many years, leaving the door open for GT to be redeclared possibly-canon-i...

Re: Do you think the Freeza thing will be resolved?

Freeza coming back into any kind of main villain role or being killed off again would feel so pointless, though. He was obviously brought back to add another (permanent) element to Dragon World and its expanded cast. The only major misstep since his return was showing an on-screen planet attack at ...

Re: Next Dragon Ball Super Movie Idea

I'm also skeptical of Spider-Man: Somethingsomething Home . Yeah, it's nice that they're acknowledging the other Sony continuities, it's decent fanservice, but I'm not convinced that the movie's gonna be anything better than that. Tom Holland's Peter Parker has no connection to these past villains f...

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

I don't think it's bad. I like the contrast of Goku and Vegeta's Blue forms and the Heeters taking up a huge portion of the page. I sometimes like to predict what the reverse cover will be. I have a feeling it'll be the Saiyan Oozarus replacing the Heeters in the background, and maybe Bardock, Muezl...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I think Gohan Black, much like Goten Black, seems like a good alternative, but when you stop and think about it for 1 minute, you quickly realize it doesn't make sense. Zamasu switched bodies with Goku because Goku challenged him to a fight and completely humiliated, Bulma even notes that this whol...

Re: Which non-combatant character would you like to see throw hands?

It feels like everyone involved in Bra's creation either forgot or preferred to ignore the fact that she's half-Saiyan.

Which non-combatant character would you like to see throw hands?

As you may know, many powerful characters in Dragon Ball do not ever get to demonstrate their fighting skill on page or screen. Many of the mentor characters, especially. Here are a few I would be interested in seeing jump into a fray once in a while. If not in a major battle, maybe in a lighthearte...

Re: Is Trunks as beloved as Hercule in the Future?

This is a pretty interesting thread, actually. It hadn't really occurred to me that Trunks is the only other person besides Mr. Satan to successfully convince the people of Earth to donate to a Spirit Bomb, albeit he had an easier job considering that hardly anyone was left in his timeline. While Tr...

Re: Favorite Trunks design?

I like sharp and mature Trunks from the very end of the Cell arc. It's a shame that he goes back to looking short and boyish (and blue-haired, for reasons only Zamasu knows) in Super.

Re: Japanese vs English names

It's not how I spell or pronounce them either--I just imagine the Japanese voices saying the names and in my head, Nozawa says "Bejita" and "Piccoro" instead of "Vegeta" and "Piccolo" because that's just how it is. It is funny to think about the scenario you laid out, though. The best example that ...

Re: Japanese vs English names

A pretty recent development is that I pronounce the names in Japanese (in my mind) whenever discussing them. So, even though Vegeta is Vegeta, in my mind, I'd legitimately have it as "Bejita." I would caution that you're not being faithful at all with this kind of mindset. This is something I see s...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 11/22/21!)

Gotenks is truly a love-it-or-hate-it kind of character. I love how Gotenks deconstructs the old "Chosen One" and "Idiot Hero" tropes with how he was created specifically to defeat Majin Buu, but because Gotenks is an immature, egotistical fool who's far more concerned with showboating and looking ...

Re: Should non canon characters become canon?

If they decided to have Toriyama recreate Coola, I want to see him as a good guy. We never had a good guy in Freeza's race outside of Heroes. A lot of fanmade pitches I've seen for a Cooler reboot emphasise him being the black sheep of the clan, which I might be on board with if it's done well. Mak...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Manga Chapter 78 - Official Discussion Thread

One of the most economically-paced chapters we've had so far. Felt like almost twice the length of a normal chapter, though unfortunately that may say more about the pacing of past chapters. Excellent artwork, great action, funny gags. Can't fault it on its own. Stand outs have to be Macki and Oil p...

Re: GT vs Super

In terms of presentation (ie. art style, animation style, hand-painted cels), Dragon Ball GT feels more in-line with Dragon Ball Z, although that has to do with it being made on the tail-end of Z's original run when that style was predominant. But some of the people who prefer GT to Super, or who j...

I mostly agree with this, although the Red Ribbon connection feels more of natural story point to me, and less of a "Hey, everyone loved these guys, right? So let's bring them back!" But yes, all of the talk of Cooler, Janemba, etc. being made canon feels like the Dragon Ball fandom is setting a ce...

Re: Dragon Ball: The Breakers (PS4/Switch/Xbox One/Steam)

I'm hyped, it's about time we got something other than a plain fighting/action game. I love both genres but Dragon Ball has so much more to offer in gameplay variety. A survival horror game themed around Cell's rampages makes too much sense (plus it's nice to have him be the star attraction). Also c...
