Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The Universe 6 arc in the Super manga is supremely enjoyable.

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

I'm fairly certain those french websites don't have translators, besides what Google translate provides. That’s what you say, Those french websites are actually the most reliable about Dragon Ball xD But however, I just asked to a Japanese translator* (who is a big fan and expert of DB) to translat...

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

But it really just confirmed what many of us suspected. Toriyama is involved, but his role seems closer to an editor while this arc is Toyo's baby. Without making any sweeping statements, taking into account all the behind-the-scenes comments on the arc so far, and the ways they differ from previou...

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

Fair enough but I still would argue that confirms the initial idea of the arc was Toriyama. How the arc shaped and what it ultimately became we don’t know whether the “culprit” was Toyo or Toriyama beyond designs attributed to Toyo and a secret of a character attributed to Toriyama ( who I assume i...

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

The full first response more specifically says that Toyotaro was surprised in early story meetings by the concepts Toriyama offered (as only the original series author could), and that he feels the arc moved forward with mutual confidence that it would make for a good story. It doesn't (firmly) attr...

Honest to god, thank you for laying out the differences from the arcade game, as I haven't had time to keep up with its new campaigns recently. Mechikabura raising a bird is a new tidbit, though. Apparently (per groundbreaking research), it draws from a bit of background lore in Ultimate Mission X ,...

It's just, like ... a normal face, which is only in three panels. I can take a picture tomorrow, I suppose, but it didn't even strike me as being important.

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

Good point but then again, Pan is a character with a much bigger profile than Oolong or Chammel to being simply added on a whim by the manga author. I'm pretty sure Banco must've given him the Ok to add her. Oolong strikes me as likely having been an authorial whim (which is why there's certainly r...

I vibe on both the multiple favorable Battle of Gods assessments in this thread (it's genuinely very funny and thematically fitting as an epilogue) and the view of Broly outlined in the opening post. I really do think its story works more than it's given credit for, though I also think it could have...

Re: Super Dragon Ball Heroes (Manga) Discussion Thread

I guess, probably of note to very few people, but for those with eagle eyes for lore consistency... The way Hearts describes Lagss' abilities this chapter feels slightly at odds with bio descriptions and earlier content, which imply a full-on magical "glassification." That would fit with Hearts aski...

And lose the chance to print more shiny Pan: Xeno cards?

Is like you don't know how Bandai works.
To be pedantic, this isn't Pan: Xeno, though. It's just Pan ... GT, I guess.

(If this isn't just Nagyama going rogue, she might get Super Saiyan though, which somehow still hasn't happened.)

Probably Gotenks, as utilized in the Boo arc.
