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

I get they're probably holding back the big character sheets for Jump Festa, but it feels a bit tone deaf to showcase Karin and Dende at something as big as NYCC. Honestly, from the statements I doubt that we will even see anything big at Jump Festa except for new character sheets. It's only 2 mont...

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

I've got mixed feelings on all this. +More Piccolo is always good. +I like that Pan gets to age +I'm happy about Brolli training with Goku at Whis' place. +Some of the shots (Pan charging up, Goku's closeups) look good +Tank-top Vegeta returns!

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

It extended my participation in the fandom, for personal better or worse, as I was losing interest the few years right before BoG was announced. I thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie from BoG to the end of weekly DBS episodes. I found a lot of what made Super fun for me was the people I hung out with...

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

A main visual reveal makes sense. I think they're saving their first big trailer for Jump Festa.

I haven't thought much about the movie since the initial panel about it, but I like that they're taking risks (or at least it looks like they are by what we know atm).

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

I feel like they're playing it so safe that it becomes too repetitive for me to get much enjoyment out of it; like they're just spinning their wheels. I wish they'd take the characters to some of these other universes and explore that. My highest excitement with an arc shouldn't be my initial expect...

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

I'm guessing they feel it's less risky to do this with DB and assume no matter what it'll still make a lot of money. I can't imagine them making a One Piece cgi movie because despite it being more popular than DB in Japan, OP's not as popular in the U.S. and their goal with cgi is to jump into west...

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

I'm curious as to how the process of producing scripts for the anime differs from this very layered method the manga uses and wondering if that could partly explain why imo the anime had higher highs and lower lows where the manga feels like it's taking the middle road and just playing it safe.

Re: Jun'ya Furusawa's passing.

Rest in peace. Furusawa's art is some of my favorites from the era. Were his pieces ever in an artbook? I don't think he drew enough to fill a standard length artbook of his own.

Re: Was Moro wasted potential? His introduction was really ominous.

Yes, he is wasted potential. I had high hopes when I first learned he had magical powers and then they dashed them pretty quickly by leaning in on the one energy drain technique, not getting creative (imo) again until Planet Moro, and not bothering to do anything fun with his personality.

Re: When should Pan get Super Saiyan?

In the upcoming 2022 movie. They brought attention to her in that panel and gave her an entirely new outfit + aged her up a bit; it's hard to imagine they aren't preparing her to get super saiyan.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Movie #2: "Super Hero" Coming 2022! (Toriyama Scripting!)

The Brolli movie performed amazingly well, but they didn't apply that art style to everything that came after it. Heroes still looks like Yamamuro. General DB promo art still has a variety of art styles. Yes, but there is a huge cost difference between using different 2D-styles and -animators and d...

Re: Think of a plot for the new movie

Is this about guessing the upcoming 2022 movie's plot? If so: More like make up your own idea of the plot, even if it's something that probably won't happen. Sort of like if you were writing the movie, what you would do. Oh! In that case, what I'd propose is more of a wishlist than a plot proper: -...

Re: Thoughts on the new Super movie title?

Imagining when the arcades start promoting Super Dragon Ball Heroes Dragon Ball Super Super Heroes and hoping to hear the commercial speak that entire phrase due to how absurd it'll be.

I'm convinced the title of the movie itself is a joke Toriyama came up with for the sake of it sounding silly.

I wonder if the action is gonna be more like a sentai series this time if "superhero" is the theme. I'm picturing Piccolo using his ability to grow giant so he can fight an opponent's mecha in hand to hand combat.

I'm impressed that it's not Cooler. Redoing one of his movies, or redoing Janemba (or even Bebi) would've been easy money. They took a risk with these hints of story and I'm stunned. There must be some hunger in there though because someone high up doesn't have enough patience to wait another year u...
