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

I wanted Goku Black to have been an actual evil Goku--be it a Goku who had come out of a life-altering tumultuous experience, or maybe something simpler along the lines of a Goku who was being mind-controlled/brain-washed by the true villain of the arc. Learning that Goku Black was just Zamasu doing...

The DB app's stage (for Legends?) is at 11am on the 20th. https://www.jumpfesta.com/amusement/ The next stage event that follows it--for DQ-- doesn't start until 12:30. Whether that means they're gonna fill up that whole hour and a half somehow I don't know. Could it be possible there's an hour bre...

Re: Vegeta's current development is really a good change?

An aside; seeing those old, flipped, Planet Namek scans in all their crunchy quality is so nostalgic. That they still float around the internet decades later despite that quality is something else. Vegeta's been...interesting this arc in that he feels author-possessed at points while waffling in oth...

Re: Dragon Ball on MeTV's Kids Block? Yay or Nay?

MeTV has some talented editors who make fun commercials for the shows they run in a way that reminds me of the old commercials Nick at Nite used to create only with more advanced software. That said, reading the article it looks more like they're aiming for comedy than action-adventure so even if it...

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

I think the latest we could have to wait to learn if there will be a stage or a panel would probably be a few weeks before Jump Festa. I remember last year they announced 2 dragon ball panels really late, so we could get something a few days before. I hope so. Even if all we get is an announcement ...

Re: Animaniacs (2020 reboot) homages DBZ

It felt more like a nod to Studio Trigger on the whole, but I agree about the quick power-up moment being DB-inspired. I didn't watch all the new episodes and didn't even watch in order, but from what I saw the Pinky & The Brain sketches felt right. However, the designs of the humans in the Warners'...

Re: If Goku didn't marry ChiChi, which woman would you pair him with?

I think if they had written Chi-Chi differently--less single-mindedly with more balance between education and martial arts--it could've worked out better. Say she continued training, but also wasn't about to let Gohan get away without a typical education (picture him combining his exercise with math...

Re: So is Vegeta the new Piccolo?

Unless a new character comes along, takes the "Goku's rival" role and sticks around as part of the main cast on Earth for more than just the arc they were introduced in so as to become a part of the Z team, I think Vegeta's safe. Hit, Jiren, and Brolli were all options for a replacement-Vegeta and n...

Re: What is the general consensus of the "Moro saga"?

I had high hopes at the start (Galactic Patrol! Outerspace! Buu!) and it slowly went downhill from when they introduced Moro (not a fan of his character designs or personality) to really downhill once the retreading ground stuff began (Planet Namek again!? All those parts ripped from the Cell and Bu...

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

I'm so happy we've made it to the end of the arc! (Just watch Moro still be alive next chapter somehow though). Two years was way too long to spend on Moro with how much of a breading to meat ratio it had imo. The beginning was so promising in terms of something fresh and then it made that hard tur...

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

I think advertising Moro as a psychic would've worked out better than him being advertised as a magic user. Magic makes me think of powers that are fun and fantastical. It makes me think of an energetic, eccentric personality. I think of the gag manga style characters Toriyama's so good at. It's why...

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

I can't properly judge until I read the whole chapter, but this cliffhanger feels like more stalling. :|

It leaves me wondering what's going on behind the scenes. I'd rather them just put the manga on hold too if it's going to continue moving at such a slow pace.

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

At best, I can see them saying "and Dragon Ball has a bright future ahead, so look forward to it!". A vague statement that more or less would confirm something new, but also, that much is obvious :) This has the best chance of being what happens, imo. The theory of them announcing 2uper at SDCC I'm...

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

I wouldn't be surprised if SDCC is where 2uper is announced. The Brolli movie seemed like it was aimed more for U.S. audiences anyway with its heavy focus on "Here's Brolli vs Gogeta; remember the nostalgic Budoukai 3 opening? Here it is, only better animated!" and the giant Gokû balloon at the Than...

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

Even though the Moro arc is lackluster to many, I think I prefer the anime coming back way after the manga took off with it's own story. I enjoyed having two different versions of DBS but I'm ready now to follow the manga like with the original run. Even if the manga took off with it's own story, i...

Wano is an arc Oda has been excited to work on in the manga for a long while, so it's not too surprising that Toei would be working extra hard to make sure this arc looks good animated.

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

I’m glad I’m not the only one who is absolutely disliking this arc under basically every aspect. I was starting to be under the impression that maybe I started to grow a dislike for Dragon Ball itself considering how overhyped this new manga arc is by the majority of the fandom. Surely not having a...
