Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

What if Vegeta acquired immortality on Namek before the dragon disappeared? How would the fight with Freeza and the following arcs play out?

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

Everyone is like "they'll definitely continue Dragon Ball forever, it's so lucrative and profitable" like they didn't take a 26 break between GT and Battle of Gods. Shockingly, Dragon Ball is multiple times more profitable now than it was in the 90s due to all the merchandise, videogames, Heroes an...

Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

What if God never cut Goku's tail? How would the 23rd TB and Saiyan arcs differ if he had access to Oozaru? I assume nothing would change about the 23rd TB besides Goku being marginally stronger but in the Saiyan arc, this would dissuade Vegeta from turning Oozaru himself.

Re: Goku Black coming from Original Future timeline

I think it makes sense, as far as we are able to understand. The only two issues is the wasted opportunity for Goku Black to be Zamasu from the actual original timeline (the one Cell comes from), and that in the manga, "one day passes in the present, one day passes in the future", which is not true...

Re: Goku Black coming from Original Future timeline

It's a time loop in the anime and time loops are supposed to be inherently paradoxical. It depends on whether or not you consider if Super's time travel fits with the established time travel of the original series. In the manga, the progression follows more logically the original series but where it...

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

Good chapter, but I really can't see a way to extend this arc any further. The battle with Gas should conclude in Cereal, and Elec should get his second wish granted which should hopefully spice things up. I don't see a way for Freeza to enter the plot at this point, but I hope I'm wrong.

No PS5 for this game? I really hope whatever game BN decides to put out for PS5 is quality. Hopefully they've been working on something since kakarot or before.
Don't own one myself but aren't current Gen consoles backwards compatible anyway?

Re: Was Dragon Ball iconic enough to distinguish itself from its roots?

There was a time when I couldn't see Dragon Ball as a Japanese production This genuinely confuses me. Even in first grade when I didn’t quite understand what anime was I was able to pick up on a distinctly asian motif of the series. In its most whitewashed Saban days. Look at Gohan’s original outfi...

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

No judgement on the story's quality so far, but this is a very odd arc structure. Making this same wish twice in the same arc in the span of a few days is to me inherently off-putting but I'll see where they go with this.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

Do you think we will see Ultra Ego Vegeta in the film? I'm not getting the vibe that this is going to be a super serious story that Goku and Vegeta need to go all out for. I would reckon we might see Blue or UI against Broly at the start of the film but Goku will fight in base/SS/SSG the rest of th...

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

I would not doubt we get powerlevel readings eventually but I just want to note Gas had a huge power-up. From losing to Bardock (somewhere below 10,000) to beating Granolah in about 40 years. Let's keep in mind Granolah was able to effectively blitz all the OG androids updated with 73's powers. 73 i...

Re: Favorite Goku Voice?

Always Nozawa, in particular I like her adult interpretation of the character. Midway through the Freeza arc I feel she really found a consistent voice for a mature Goku. It's interesting to note than even though Goku has been an adult since the beginning of the 23rd TB, Nozawa's pitch and mannerism...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

How strong do we consider anime merged Zamasu? I know by every metric he's implied to be weaker than Jiren but considering how Zamasu was about equal to Vegetto Blue, that's hard to believe. Vegetto in the Zamasu arc should be weaker than Gogeta in Broly obviously, but for comparison a Gogeta Blue t...

Re: Should Dragon Ball Super get a reboot or continue?

It would be ideal to reboot the series following the manga while incorporating the good points in both versions, but that would be time-consuming, would require too much planning, and it would be divisive among fans to say the least. Though at this point I wouldn't expect a Super return for the next...

Re: Making a Good DB Story v. Making a Good Story

I don't consider anything "evolved" if it still takes cues and tries to emulate the aesthetic and style of the original author. That's not "evolving" whatever that means. Star Wars didn't evolve from George Lucas either. Something evolved would be the superhero comics targeting entirely different de...

DB didn't "evolve" past Toriyama, that makes no sense. Every piece of content still adheres to Toriyama's world, aesthetic, rules and style. Even if the man himself isn't directly responsible, every other writer is trying to emulate his style, to various degrees of success. The only piece of Dragon ...
