Re: “There is nothing to learn from Dragon Ball,” says Akira Toriyama’s editor, Kazuhiko Torishima

Bullshit. Even if Dragon Ball didn't try to revolutionize the medium, it did it through an EXCELLENT cast of main characters (the writing of characters like future/present Trunks), a not "in your face" story-telling full of subtleties and making the most coherent fights in terms of BP (from the saiy...

Re: Is anyone else dissapointed that Vegeta doesn’t get a new transformation?

We spent the first 300 chapters of the series without any new transformation, and I for one love to see the series expanding new concepts to give the characters a nice power up. Vegeta's spirit training is much better than simply let's say SSJ2 Blue (which is already that evolved SSJ form hi has sin...

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

Well yeah it's not that I don't see what you mean but with a big portion of the Fandom questioning how well Toyotaro can write a story (me included for some instances) I feel like the cool concept that Spirit is (even if it has been revealed before) will probably be short-lived. But hey, I would di...

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

Spirit has just been revealed to be a thing with minor references to the past (as in Z). What Vegeta learns will improve him as a fighter, but let's not forget his motivation for training on Yardrat in the first place. Fina a way to defeat Moro. Granted, this new move/power may not compare him to U...

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

Agreed. Although to be honest, even if Vegeta does, indeed, go forth with something that will rival Ultra Instinct, we lack a necessary background to it. What I mean is: we have been having this huge build-up to Ultra Instinct, as the pinnacle of power, that anything else should not even remotely a...

Re: Vegeta after Namek

What all did Vegeta claim to aspire for besides defeating Freeza? His expressed hope to Nappa of using the Dragon Balls to acquire immortality for the pleasure of engaging in "endless combat" is some of the best insight we have for his desires. Also, he described how he didn't wish to be subject to...

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

Between this chapter and the 2 pages extra chapter that explains why Moro and Freeza haven't collided, I think I'm recovering the faith in the DBS manga and Toyotarou. I missed the 2 extra pages. How moro didn't meet freeza? You'll find the news in this very page (not in the forums, in the main pag...

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

Very nice chapter all in all and much, much better than the last one. In fact, it goes as far as to retconn one of Piccolo's most controversial statement from the past chapter where he stated that SSJB Goku had turned stronger (it now seems it was just his personal impression and not meant to be tak...

Re: Toei was at their best when they did their own thing

for the manga the films are still canon at least FNF and Broly movie are FNF is only canon in the parts that doesn't contradict the manga, so the "beyond God" state from the movies doesn't exist in the FNF (skipped) adapted saga (we have to assume the first round between Goku and Freeza went with G...

-That something is explained does not mean that it makes sense and it was only explained recently that vegeta began to fight so no. it didn't happen in the battle of the gods and it didn't happen in fnf movie, it's something out of the ass An explanation only is invalid when it 100% contradicts oth...

Re: How were the Trio of Danger able to compete against Base Goku in the ToP?

He says that he can get stronger but without transformation or screaming like the Saiyans, it was quite clear that he does not do it by those means but he can get stronger ... I doesn't make much sense while he would say this and I was pretty convinced that he specifically said he couldn't, but it'...

it is because vegeta and piccolo are supposed to be feeling their current power Anime >>> Wiki In the anime Hit says that he can't increase his power anymore, which is the opposite of what he says in the manga. http://myanx.com/mangas-online/dragon-ball/capitulo-312/dragonball13.jpg No, Goku wasn't...

for 4 reasons -mainly because there has never been such a big wear of someone with such a silly excuse before in z in any case show me when something like this happened in the original manga.

Re: How were the Trio of Danger able to compete against Base Goku in the ToP?

Actually GoT went to shit because there was no consequences for actions. You fuck up you die in the land of GoT. Characters in the last seasons fucked up repeatedly by making risky pointless maneuvers that didn't benefit them at all but nothing bad happened to them. Everyone was upset because Arya,...

Re: How were the Trio of Danger able to compete against Base Goku in the ToP?

Because it's a story and despite popular belief the only thing that matters is that the narrative is interesting. Exact power levels don't matter, the scaling has always been nonsense even from the get go, and thank god or the show wouldn't be even vaguely exciting. If Goku punches Basil and he's O...

Okay, no, that's not what happened. Initially it was Goku vs. Future Zamasu, Goku got pushed back and cornered by Black and Zamasu. Black charged at Goku with the intention of hitting him, but his attack was parried by Trunks, who came out of nowhere. Black had no knowledge of Trunks coming in to s...

I can't remember a single time when SS2 Trunks fought Rosé Black, aside from that one time he came out of nowhere and parried Black's attack... which is followed by Black annihilating both Trunks and Goku with Rosé kamehameha. The very 1st round of the fight. Vegeta is dispatched pretty fast, and t...

Re: Toei was at its best, when it did their own thing

In terms of writting DBS is like DB:GT. Not exactly. Unlike GT, Super is actually fun to watch and has good fight scenes. GT on the other hand is the most boring thing to come out of the franchise, with the fights having little to no choreography. Well, the fight choreographies are not writting, th...
