Re: What if 17 trained goten and trunks

Actually, I take it back. I don't know that No.17 could do too much training in terms of combat , but to see him teach the kids how to protect the island...that could be good stuff. Presumably, this has already happened! I wouldn't mind more interactions between these characters, but No.17 doesn't t...

Re: DBS treated Goten and Trunks really bad

I really enjoyed these characters in the original manga, but if anything, the Boo arc proved that they were absolutely not mature enough to participate in handing global threats. And unlike back then, Gotenks isn't strong enough to make a difference in Super. That said, young Trunks definitely had a...

My god. This is definitely the most exciting set of draft pages we've seen, IMO.

Re: What if 17 trained goten and trunks

I wouldn't mind more interactions between these characters, but No.17 doesn't train. In the manga, his strength is partially justified by "domesticating" Cell Juniors, but he was merely doing his job. I don't really know what No.17 could teach Goten and Trunks even if he was enthusiastic about train...

Re: Should Toei start making Dragon Ball "What If's" ?

I'll pretty much second what The Undying said. Still, in the age of entertainment companies learning from Disney's model, it's possible the Dragon Ball Room might attempt something like that eventually. YouTube is LITTERED with these types of videos, but I mostly view that as fans living out their f...

Re: Did Kaioshin take the place of Dai Kaio?

Since all "Gods of Creation" are of the same race, it's possible that they all hail from the same planet. Supplemental material gives us reason to believe this, although this source predates Toriyama's invention of the 12 Universes, and this information is never actually mentioned in the main series...

Re: Shueisha, Twitter and DMCA

My guess is that they're doing this ahead of the launch of their new website, which I'm sure they want to be your ONLY source for Dragon Ball news and media. Good luck with that, Shueisha.

Re: Thoughts on Moro's character?

Cell completely lives and dies on Norio Wakamoto's voice, so I don't doubt that this could be the case. On the page, though, I wish he were a little more charismatic than Cell, as I'd wish for all DB villains. (Moro may already be more charismatic than Cell, on that note.) What do you have in mind ...

I hadn't forgotten that he said it took his magic a few years to recover to the point where he could escape, but for some reason I never put two and two together on "a few years ago" being when the evil Boo would have been killed. There isn't much other reason to include a detail like that, so ... ...

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

Disney already owns Dragon Ball in some sense. 20th Century Fox made DB Evolution and owned the rights to distribute all DB films. Fox was bought out by Disney in the last couple years. Disney already distributed DBS Broly. I'm not saying they have their hands in the Dragon Ball Room, or that they e...

Re: What would be the breaking point Super would do that would make you feel like it jumped the shark?

You say that but oddly enough, it isn't Heroes that keeps "retconning" or changing established things for the sake of it. So where are you saying the same thing about Dragon Ball Super? Also, the anime is hardly an indication to anything. Yes, it being just a short promotional anime does play a maj...

I have not re-read Minus for this post (I read it a couple months ago), but I'll share a few thoughts. I know some fans complain about the implications on the lore that come with Minus, especially when compared to Toeis' Bardock special, which even Toriyama says he loved. I get that. As a manga, as ...

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

Honestly, How cool would it be for there to be a dragon ball super spin off that was done by Dragon Garow Lee. I’ve seen his art and its far better than Toyotaro’s best. Maybe some kind of Hit spin off. Honestly I would do that would be very interesting. I quite like DGL's art, but he seems to have...

Re: What would be the breaking point Super would do that would make you feel like it jumped the shark?

I mean, have you considered the idea that maybe it is a bad show precisely because every episode is only 10 minutes long? It's not exactly easy to properly develop the story, character interactions, dialogue, power consistency, etc. in such a small amount of time. I don't think the brevity has anyt...

Re: Thoughts on Moro's character?

I think he's fine. Contrary to popular belief, I don't think we know much less about his "backstory" than most other villains of the series, and I don't think he's significantly less developed, either. Out of all Dragon Ball villains, Boo is probably the most interesting when it comes to characteriz...

Re: What would be the breaking point Super would do that would make you feel like it jumped the shark?

If SDBH had full-length episodes and was the only new DB content, I probably couldn't get through the entire series. As it is, SDBH is terrible, but at least it's only 10 minutes long. I'm content watching the episodes out of curiosity, shaking my head, and moving on with my life. In this alternate ...

Sorry if I was a downer; I am not really a Toyo-hater but this group almost made me feel like one. Not mentioned on this podcast: I had a bet with a real Toyo-hater (a friend, btw) that Gogeta would not be the one to beat Moro. He insisted that I was underestimating Toyo's hackness and I told him t...
