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

I like the cover quite a bit overall despite the issues. I've heard people complain about the color scheme. I remember reading an interview where Toriyama complained about the bright colors of the anime while saying he'd prefer a more subdued color scheme. I don't remember the interview, so don't qu...

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

If Moro goes to Earth, I bet Gohan is going to lose to him if a fight happens on Earth. I bet Gohan doesn't appear at all. Toriyama doesn't really think much of Gohan as a character and hasn't really thrown him that much of a bone since Resurrection F. And even in that instance, Toriyama wrote Goha...

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

Didn't Toriyama say Beerus sealed elder Kaioshin away? The Kaiōshin (who create planets) and the Gods of Destruction (who destroy them) have never gotten along that well, but once every 1,000 years they go to each other’s realms and hold a coordination meeting. At this time, they got into an argume...

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

I did not know that, can you expand on the subject? Here's a translation by Kei17 of Toriyama's comment in the 30th anniversary Super History Book back in 2015: Dragon Ball once became a thing of the past to me, but after that, I got angry about the live action movie, re-wrote an entire movie scrip...

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

as far as I remember GT was also considered "official continuation" Yes, while GT is typically called a 続編, to my knowledge it's never been referred to as a 正統続編 the way Super is here. https://twitter.com/Herms98/status/1057917520429015045 It is referred to as a "continuation" because it literally ...

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

I know the go-to DB canon discussion has always been "Shueisha has never specifically said something was canon, so it's whatever you want it to be", but now that they're using 正統続編, it's hard to stand by that. All that said, that has very little to do with why I prefer the manga. Throughout the mang...

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

that something is "official" does not make it canon There is a difference between "official" and "official sequel". The Japanese phrasing is 正統続編.

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

That's anime canon, and doesn't even make sense in that context. This is a thread about the manga. Except that the anime canon is the main canon of Super and the manga remains as side story fluff for entertainment/promotion. Come on, now. At this point, this is just low-quality, antagonistic bait. ...

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

Chances are Toyotaro knows how big of a question he just raised and already has an answer for it. This is exactly right, and this has been the case since the manga first started coming out. People have their problems with Toyotaro, and that's fine, but month after month, this same thing happens. So...

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

so another question/plothole if meerus is stronger or as strong as ssj3 goku why wasn't he in the TOP? clearly whis can sense ki everywhere and should know of him Merus has not been shown to be strong, only fast. Vegeta stated early on in the arc that he couldn't sense Merus' presence, and it has b...

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

Cool to see the prison. Prisoners don't look great, but I didn't expect them to. Still not as bad as the fodder from the previous arc. I got pretty excited to see a bad Metalman. The wish didn't really meet my expectations, but I think it works. While it's clear that Moro doesn't actually care about...

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

One thing I like about this arc is that, in a way, Merus is the main character. He hasn't had the most page time, but I like the idea that Goku and Vegeta are intruding on his story. The arc has been about Merus' mission to recapture Moro. He was planning on doing it without Goku/Vegeta's help in th...

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

Merus may just be my favorite thing about this arc. He's so cool. There have been intelligent characters in Dragon Ball, but none feel as smart and generally competent as he does. I like the dynamic of him having to work with a bunch of idiots who do what they want, like the Saiyans and Boo. I reall...

I absolutely love everything that's going on with Boo. His buffoon-with-no-rules essence is perfectly preserved. I'm most looking forward to seeing what happens with the Dai Kaioshin.

Seriously, what was he doing for three days?
I really think he was learning how to sense the Dragon Balls. It takes him a moment to figure out where the one hidden in that village was, and it doesn't seem that he would've known how to sense them before arriving on New Namek.

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

Every Toei movie is "Bad guy shows up, the heroes fight, there's some hijinks and gags, final fight" That's boring. That's the same formula here. I'd rather more chapters without fighting while both sides do other things, and that way the anticipation of when they come to blows will grow and grow u...

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

According to a Bing translation of a French tweet translating Toyotaro's twitter post, tankobon 9 will have additional pages that Toyo didn't have time to include during serialization.
