Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

Have you noticed that a lot of sequels with a "Super" prefix end up being embarrassingly flanderized tropes from the first series? To the point it almost seems fake?

Yeah, welcome to Super DB Heroes. Where Goku trains with the Grand Priest.

Re: GT's Opening Alternative Story

Not sure, but I always wished we seen more of that stuff from the OP. Goku and Trunks vs. that giant looked dope and much better than the entire Luud conflict.

Also would’ve loved to see Trunks using blasters like he did in that one Toriyama GT illustration he did for Jump.

Imagine: We Can Pick 1 GT Remake. Which Will You Choose?

1. A "GT Kai" anime with the timeless Tokunaga musical score; 2. A GT OVA with animation mirroring Super DB Heroes, but the OVA is only 10 episodes, so while major plot points will remain the same, there will be other changes made to facilitate the shorter episode count; completely new musical score...

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

The funny thing about this is that it's damn-near obvious at this point that Toei/Shueisha/Dragon Room want to revive GT in some way. They know that despite the performance of the original GT anime, the fans are in love with the unforgettable elements of the series and are still finding ways to push...

Re: Super Episode 121 (23 December 2017)

Since it seems like the mods aren't going to make an official thread for this episode, I might as well post my thoughts on it here: - The sub here spells it as "Anilaza", I know the r and l problem with Japanese but which one is it really intended to be? His name is a pun on "Lasagna" so it is supp...

Re: So what is the consensus on Jiren as a character?

Years ago, in the Pokemon anime there was a character named Tobias who literally came out of nowhere during the Pokemon League tournament finals and his character was "special" because he had a legendary Pokemon on his team which was unheard of. This character had no background, no story, no motivat...

Re: The New Gods of the Universe Survival Arc Discussion Thread

I don't know if this has been said before, but we all know how Moscow, Robot God of Destruction of U3 has Luud's colors? What if all of his universe's fighters are GT design and based as well? I'm expecting a Ledgic looking guy from U3, but that's just me He doesn't just have his colors. He literal...

So I'm 100% sure Mosco's design is a reference to Luud from GT: https://www.instagram.com/p/BQo5695jpA4/ Toyota you GENUINE FANBOY YOU I swear, having someone who knows the franchise inside and out teaming up with Toriyama who knows the franchise whenever he's forced to remember it is great.

Mosuko is "Cosmo" backwards in Japanese. Mo-su-ko. Ko-su-mo = Cosmo.

Dragon Ball Super's Biggest Star

Up to this point, Dragon Ball Super has more or less met or surpassed everyone's expectations in regards to giving the characters we grew up and fell in love with their moments to shine. From making Future Trunks OP to bringing back [spoiler]Ultimate Gohan,[/spoiler] fans across the globe have been ...

Re: Why I Don't Blame Goku For This Arc

It's not as big a deal as we're making it. Just another reference to GT like Vegito's de-fusion [was to Gogeta's] where the blame is put on Goku and he has to take responsibility. Specifically, with the Evil Dragons.

What Really Makes DBS Pop

Is that it's one giant meme. It's very close to leaning on the fourth wall. It's like the Toei interns all grew up on Dragon Ball Multiverse or a couple doujins and drew inspiration from them. Whereas DBGT was Toei forcing themselves on Toriyama's world, with their own interpretations and developmen...

Re: Something interesting about the Barry Kahn arc

The whole Barry Kahn story in these last 2 episodes felt to me like a rehashing of the Baby Saga (which itself was inspired by the Garlic Jr. Saga with the idea of inflicting humans to make them stronger), the Watagash forms of Barry Kahn goes in the same linear way as Baby-Vegeta went: 1) fully hu...
