Re: Paragus Dragon Ball Super.

To me, Paragus represents a very old-fashioned type of father. Clearly he has become obsessed with revenge and is exploiting his son, but any affect that has on Broly is justified in his view. The revenge that Paragus seeks is for both of their sakes; he wants to restore the honor that Vegeta III s...

Re: Broly's Outfit

I prefer the DBS outfit, but I like them both! New design: -I like the colors. -I like that the different aspects of his costume have purpose. -His collar is to control his power, and it makes you wonder where it came from. Did Paragus make it from parts of the broken ship? Do Saiyans take slaves so...

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

You are forgetting last chapter. Merus said Goku needs to calm his emotions in the face of shock to activate UI. This is exactly what Goku did when Jiren was about to exit him. which obviously is not the only thing necessary ... because now another is the main premise that is much more appropriate ...

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

I really enjoyed how hectic and fast-paced this chapter was. That quality was one of my favorite aspects of the Boo arc, and I'm glad to see that energy continuing here. The action in this chapter was a good balance rough, dynamic, and clean. It feels like Yunba and Shimorekka are especially express...

Re: The Mysterious Merus!!

My based-on-almost-nothing guess is that Merus is a son of the Great Priest who has been sent to live among humans as part of his training before he becomes a full-fledged angel. My even crazier guess is that he will be Whis' replacement as Universe 7's angel and that Whis will take over for the ret...

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

When Earth's forces face off against Moro's B Team, do you think they'll do the battle simultaneously (like in Resurrection F) or one at a time (like the Saiyan arc)? I automatically assumed they would go with the RoF style, but it'd be a fun throwback to take it the other direction. Or maybe it'll ...

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

Really loved this chapter. The plot didn't progress much, but that's exactly what I was hoping for. In fact, this chapter met and surpassed my expectations. It gave me what I wanted while throwing in a few surprises I would never have seen coming. The Yardratian bait totally floored me. I was disapp...

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...

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...

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...
