Re: Is there really a reason to make Mirai Trunks suffer aga

I don't think so, no. But he must suffer to appease the fans, apparently. I'm really flip-floppy on the whole thing. On one level, what they're doing is working on me. On another, I slightly resent that and what they're doing generally. The preview we got from Super #46 does not fill me with confide...

Re: What aspects do you think tarnished the Dragonball brand

You know, even Toriyama is pissed off by Super Really? I heard he wasn't a fan of the animation, but haven't heard anything along the lines of that. I can't tell you the source because it's insider information, but he surely got turned off and reluctant to keep being involved with Super, so they ha...

Trunks would be a fool to pass up on of the beautiful vampires of Dragon Ball.

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

I'm really don't think the earring colour is important at all. We all must know of Toriyama's... unstrict attitude to colouring a design, and clearly Yamamuro's gone nuts by keeping Trunks' hair as blue. EDIT: Woah, I put 'Potara' there for a sec, even though I've been intentionally avoiding that. I...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

I hope this arc isn't so grim-dark and serious like the android saga was I'm with ya. That's something I've worried about since we learned Future Trunks was returning. I was hoping he wouldn't bring his super-serious emotional baggage with him. The key visual doesn't inspire much confidence in that...

My headcanon up to this point has always been that they moved on and didn't bother. I won't mind at all if this turns out not to be the case though.

Re: Does Son Gokuu have a wallet?

Do they even have pockets in their regular outfits? I guess Goku would tuck it into his shirt or belt if he had one...

Either way, I don't think he needs one. There's nothing important he would care to carry around.

eledoremassis02, can you please tell me if the title page for Chapter 005 is included?

Nope. https://...

Re: "This looks/feels like something out of AF/fanfiction"

That's missing my point. Toei always had the opportunity to mess around with colors, because their anime was always in color 100% of the time. Toriyama was crafting his story in a predominantly black and white medium where color changes outside of Super Saiyan's "no shading" wouldn't be possible to...

Re: Dragon Ball 'Super History Book'

I have to say though... Maybe I'm being stupid, but is there a reason we're celebrating the 30th anniversary in 2016? It's the 30th anniversary of the anime. The first episode of Dragon Ball aired February 26th, 1986. But you could also consider it an extended celebration of the manga's 30th annive...

Got the book a few days ago. It is an absolute joy. Got a bit teary after going through it all.
