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

Watching the 23rd Budokai in the anime makes you root for Piccolo to an extent after seeing his backstory as an orphan. You can tell he's also not a bad guy entirely since he saves a child from death in one scene even as an adult. Especially if you already know how vulnerable he gets with Gohan late...

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

I'm glad we can finally put to rest these arguments that "SSB Evolution isn't actually a real form, it's the same as SSB but with a different aura" with confirmation from Toyotarou that both forms have different hair colors.

Re: What would make a good ending for the series?

The Boo arc is about the most perfect ending you could conceivably think of. People like to harp on about the timeskip and Goku leaving with Oob, but forget that two chapters prior we had a brilliant arc where everyone's characters came full circle and the entire Earth pitched in to defeat the villa...

Re: How did Unseen Trunks get a remote.

Presumably the events all play out the same until Goku wakes up. The fanbase got the idea that they deactivated the androids but truthfully a lot of things could have happened: a) Someone got the idea to go back to Gero's hideout and they find the basement by accident thereby discovering the schemat...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Just a technical question. Could Toronbo make Gas the strongest in the universe considering only how strong Goku, Vegeta and Granolah were during their fight at the time the wish was made? I mean, when they were in a very weakened state, or he is really is stronger than Granolah at his peak? I gues...

Re: The Unseen Timeline

Majin Buu saga doesn't require Cell saga in order for it to happen. I think they defeated the androids in AGE 767. Proceeded to Majin Buu saga in AGE 774. Experienced (or not) the Dragon Ball Super events and eventually Cell will show up in AGE 788 for them, as expected. Because Cell will take his ...

The Unseen Timeline

I was wondering about the events of the unseen time-line. We know the Dragon Team was able to fend off the artificial humans somehow, but we must assume Cell would still be born 20 years later, and Babidi would arrive 7 years afterward. More importantly, outside of being mentioned in one guidebook, ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

Finally got around to playing this game. What a shame. I'm enjoying my time but can't shake the feeling that if this was given AAA treatment it'd be something really special. Even a sequel would improve on a lot of things. This game feels made for the Switch, too.

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.

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...
