Re: What would you like to see when the anime returns

I want fun character moments and mysteries I'm interested in to theorize about; the two most prominent things I find missing from the manga currently.

The manga is competent, but dry right now, imo. It's like listening to a very talented professor lecture on a topic I don't care about.

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

I agree on Vegeta's new character arc here feeling artificial to fit the plot, and that we didn't need yet another set of dragon balls. Granola has a solid backstory. This chapter on the whole though... it's mostly really well-written, but it's way too dry for me. Where the anime could get so absurd...

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

What I miss is making animated gifs with parts of new episodes. You can't really do that with the manga--not in the same way. Super's filler was a mixed bag imo. Some I liked, some I didn't. I feel like it's what's missing from the manga though, which feels to me too straightforward and sterile. Lik...

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

I'm alright with them splitting Vegeta off to go learn stuff from Beerus. It's a good lesson about how each person has their own individual personality and ways of doing things and how not everyone takes the exact same path, but tries to take the one that best fits them and how you can try somethin...

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

Yes, please! I want Freeza gone; he's just diminishing returns at this point. Let's move on from him. Also not interested in power levels; the sense I'm getting from all this prior to the release of the chapter is yet more rehash/remix: Tuffles + Bojack + Hatchiyack. Not exciting when I can see the...

I'm so relieved! While I can't fully judge until I've read the full chapter, I'm happy with this so far.

Re: DBS treated Goten and Trunks really bad

I think it's a catch-22. They no longer want to show young kids in battle, but if they age them up to where they're old looking enough to be acceptably seen in fights they won't be thought marketable by the companies because they'll say they're too old. Recall even long ago Toriyama had to fight to ...

I temporarily set my account to private; while my Twitter is easily my least-DB-centric account I still occasionally post DB fan art there and don't want to take any chances. Stay safe everyone!

Re: Do you prefer many short arcs or fewer long arcs?

Imagine if we had a new arc in the manga every 6 months! We'd be about to start our 5th (6th if you count Brolli) new storyline next month instead of only our 2nd since the anime ended two years ago. I've thought about this comment occasionally since it was posted - each month gives us 45 pages, so...

Re: 2021 Dragon Ball Wishlist/Predictions

Well, my wish would be for DBS to return in the fall of this year as a weekly animated series, or at least have them announce another movie is in the works. I also wish we knew exactly what happened behind the scenes that caused them to stop working on bringing the series back along with how far the...

Re: Putting Dragon Ball community aside (for a while)...

As someone who just returned from a self- imposed year and a half hiatus, I understand. Breaks are good, and the start of a new year is a good opportunity to do something fresh and different with your free time.

Re: Anyone surprised the original run of Dragon Ball/DBZ/GT only lasted about 10 years?

11 will take you all the way from birth to middle school. I think it's a respectable length of time for a series. Most series usually peak at year 3 or 4 anyway. I'd definitely argue DB wasn't built to last a long time anyway--not like One Piece where they constantly go to new islands that function...

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

I wish Goku and Vegeta had new outfits each arc. Those Galactic Patrol outfits from the covers were a big tease. I hope they get something new for Granola, but I doubt it. They got to change outfits, subtle or not, in Z with each arc. In all fairness, Goku and Vegeta's outfits were updated with the...

I feel like we're already there, and the Jump the Shark moment was bringing Freeza back for the ToP and then bringing him back to life.
