Re: Everything Dragon Ball Super Did Right!

Slice of life, the soundtrack, the antagonists and new characters in general, and the overall storyline were done very, very well in Super. I loved the additions to the lore such as the Gods of Destruction, the Angels, UI, Time Rings, and the multiverse. I also think that the Future Trunks and ToP a...

Re: Why did Toei make their characters worse in DBS anime?

Personally, the only two points that bothered me were forgetting the Senzu and the Mafuba seal. The others were harmless gags imo and the writing for his character improved significantly in the Tournament of Power. I think it's weird to single out Chi-Chi as well.

Re: Johnny Yong Bosch Replaces Vic Mignogna as Broly.

The decision to redub the movie is a good one. If they're going to have a new actor, I appreciate the consistency. Probably just his lines right? I would assume so. On the other hand, they also redubbed some of Daman Mills' lines in the early ToP episodes with Chris Ayres on the home release and I ...

Re: How Would You Have Written Dragon Ball Super?

I will never understand why some people are disappointed that Goku Black was Zamasu. Like, that's what makes him unique in the first place. If he was just a version of Goku manipulated by Zamasu, he'd literally be a Turles clone. Just another bloodthirsty lower class Saiyan. But since he's an actua...

Re: What would be the breaking point Super would do that would make you feel like it jumped the shark?

If we're going by the TVTropes definition presented on the first page, I can't really think of anything that would make the show feel as if it "jumped the shark". However, there would be a few things that would get me to stop watching it. For one, if the manga (assuming the anime adapts it without a...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I think Jiren's a fine antagonist. A character that rarely speaks or is seen as stoic is often considered bland, as I've seen in many series beyond Dragon Ball. That’s not character development. It’s character assassination to justify his being around. He has literally NO reason to be chilling with ...

Re: My Dragon Ball Wishes for 2021

I wouldn't mind a Kai-esque version of DB to stall for time until Super can come back but I'm not sure if that's sacrilege around here. I definitely agree with this. They should've done this awhile ago if they knew Super would be off the air for a few years. I think what's preventing this is a lack...

It'd also be nice to get...

Re: Why has DB gone so crazy with new forms?

It's because ratings go through the roof when there is a new transformation and toys with new transformations sell well. They're just giving the people what they want. They can do the same without all that though, they sold DBZ merch for years when no new series were being produced. Kai got initial...

Re: Who is your favorite God of Destruction?

I am really baffled as to why Quitela is leading lol. I only voted for Beerus. I suppose Champa would be next. If we're going by design, Giin/Geene would be my second favorite behind Beerus.

Re: I can’t believe we still haven’t gotten a proper backstory on Beerus and Whis yet after all these years..

I really don’t think there’s any need to get the backstory of Beerus and Champa. What precedent is there for that in DB?

It’s not necessary and I would certainly not call the writers lazy for not including the backstories for supporting cast members.

Re: This is the greatest take on Jiren I have ever read

I always liked Jiren more for the contrast he had in terms of how his power was presented compared to previous villains. He was obsessed with being strong, much like certain sects of the franchise's fans. But much like fans obsessed with strength above all else, it leaves him hollow and unable to s...

Re: Was DBGT canon during its original airing?

I really don't think that Dragon Ball has any sort of concept of canon. However, GT featured characters from the movies, which as far as I'm aware, were fairly explicitly outside of the manga's continuity, so if GT was "canon" to anything, it was just Z.

Re: Should the Super manga and anime divert into completely different stories now?

I would prefer they follow the same basic storyline, but I wouldn't mind if there were a few differences between the anime and the manga as there have been in the previous arcs. I've found the anime to be generally better for that reason. I believe Toei will adapt the Moro arc their own way, hopeful...

Re: Why do some have a dislike of the climax of the Zamasu/Black arc?

I don't have an issue with the end of the arc, at least the anime version. I thought it was great that there was a villain too strong for any of the characters to defeat and so they had to rely on Zeno. As a bonus, we got to finally see why every one of the Gods was so scared of Zeno as opposed to j...

Re: If Dragonball gets a canon permanent ending again, will it be better than GT's ending?

It wouldn't take much for it to surpass GT's ending, personally speaking. Wasn't a fan of the whole merging with Shenron and then becoming some sort of immortal being thing. I hope that wouldn't be the direction they went in if they ever decided to "end" the story again.
