Also, besides magazine announcements, would there be any way for the news to be released in Japan?
An official website appearing with a link to it on the official Toei/dbs Twitter account.

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

Thirding. Repeating the same song with different lyrics is boring me; as much as I really enjoy Gokû and Vegeta, this is boring me because they're not doing anything new with them. Why not send them and some of the others on an adventure in one of the other universes? They introduce 12 universes ful...

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

Well written Gokû is fun, well written Vegeta is satisfying....I'm not even sure who Vegeta's supposed to be anymore because the writers across Super couldn't seem to agree. You got me interested, which are the moments where you thought Goku and Vegeta were well written as characters? Not saying th...

Re: A Dragon Ball movie done in Studio Ghibli style?

Visually that new Dragon Quest movie looks a lot like Ghibli style Dragon Ball; the human character face designs do at least.

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

I'm the opposite; I feel like I could part ways with Vegeta more easily than I could Gokû. Vegeta's character arc feels pretty done to me and I'm not sure if they could take him in a direction I'd find interesting. Meanwhile an arc without Gokû would be an easy skip for me. You need to have competen...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

It's been quite a time since the last I visited this thread and wow I expected to read thousand of pages regarding Super "return". As a time after I heard from some friends that the anime might return in July, is that really true or we still waiting for an actual confirmation? The second half of Ap...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

I think they'd be quicker to take action on the release date announcement if an image had been leaked in addition to the information.

It'd be harder for Toei to deny 2uper's existence if there were screenshots or promo art leaked out there.

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

I'll be interested to see if Toyotaro brings his manga's art style more in line with Shintani now that the art shift has occurred in the anime.

Toyotaro's current art style has more in common with Yamamuro than Shintani imo.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

60 page Shintani art book is tempting. I may have to wait and see what's in that art book. If it has stuff they haven't posted online before...rough character sketches and larger resolution background stuff. I'll wait a while longer before I decide. Still might go with Funi's just so I can have subt...

But if it is known that he betrays fan-expectation, then wouldn't going along with fan-service betraying the fan-expectation? That sounds a lot like he'd be tricking himself, or a convoluted way of him being nice. Fans won't expect him to give them what they want so he'll give them what they want. ...

Toriyama's on record as preferring to betray fan-expectations in his work; isn't a fan-service arc the opposite of that? Maybe he'll be less involved if this is the case.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

I don't have any interest in the dub, so if all the extras are solely dub-related that's disappointing imo. I wonder what kind of extras the Japanese release will have. I still haven't preordered anywhere. The U.S. shares blu-ray regions with Japan, but I like subtitles and the Funi release would de...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

Because it varies wildly from person to person, "fan-service" is one of the worst descriptions one could use for foreshadowing something Dragon Ball related; unless the plan was to be necessarily vague on purpose. In almost any other anime series it almost always means near-nudity. Here though, I'm ...

Re: Is it Out of Character for Goku and Vegeta to spend 3 years in ROSAT just for a tournament?

They'd already spent a length of time living/training together at Beerus' place; it probably wasn't much different aside from less interesting surroundings and freedom from Whis-related chores.

So no, at that point in time I wouldn't call it ooc of them.
