Re: Should Super come back as a seasonal anime?

Seasonal would be cool if it means better animation and less filler. Filler can be good sometimes, but Super's was incredibly hit or miss.

Re: Characters you wish were completely removed from Super/sequels

I think the Trunks/Mai relationship is easily one of the worst parts of Super, if I'd remove anything it's that.

Re: Who Should Return Or Be Canonized Next?

I think it'd be cool if they did a new Cooler movie. Freeza being alive presents a really interesting opportunity for those two to have a dynamic, and we'd probably hear a bunch of cool lore stuff about the Cold/Freeza Force days. I think it's possible that Broly's Oozaru power-up is Super's take on...

Re: Who are the top 5 most important characters in DB-DBZ-DBS?

Bardock - Sends Goku to Earth. Freeza - Blows up the Saiyans and is the reason Bardock sends Goku to Earth, he's the franchise's biggest antagonist. Bulma - Introduces Goku to the Dragon Balls. Goku - Yep. Piccolo - Main antagonist for the end of Dragon Ball, trains Gohan in Z, is responsible for th...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

I've seen it twice, plan to catch it a third time during this bonus week. I'm pretty sure it's my favorite Dragon Ball movie. It's pumped me up for this franchise so much, I've even started reading the Super manga which I wasn't doing before.

Re: Should Vegeta ever transition into saying Goku instead of Kakarot?

I'd be fine either way. If they change it it's cool character progression, if they don't then it's just a cool little part of Goku and Vegeta's dynamic.

Re: Should they stop making English version of the songs for the international audience?

They should let the respective dubbing companies do it. Most of the English versions sung by the original singer are really difficult to understand. Their accents are too heavy. Compare the two ENG openings for Super to see what I mean. The second one sounds much better. Funimation's always done a g...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Now that it's been almost a week, here are some additional thoughts: I'm glad Broly isn't described as THE Legendary Super Saiyan. I always disliked that concept in the old movies, because Goku and Vegeta's accomplishments are cheapened if it's implied they're not real Super Saiyans. Broly's just a ...

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

There's so much stuff in Super that isn't in GT that it'd just be a huge box of continuity problems if they were on the same timeline. I like to consider them alternate versions of each other, Super being the more legit or "canon" one since it has Toriyama's direct involvement. But does Toriyama's ...

Re: Will DB/Z/GT Ever Get a Proper Release?

I think they will. Not from Funimation, but from Japan. I think they're bound to remaster the series at some point and that'll probably be the definitive way to watch the series. Whether or not it'll get a release overseas is a different question, it might be something you have to get illegally.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

This is probably the best Dragon Ball has ever looked. Out of the animes, movies, video game animatics, this film tops all of them in visuals IMO. The CGI bits are literally my only complaint as far as animation goes. All the transformations had unique, detailed, and interesting auras, the film over...

Re: Can I just ignore Super's existence?

Sure, you can ignore Super. There are people who ignore the Buu arc, and even some people who ignore everything past Freeza. Consume the franchise how you want, it's just TV. I like Super, I don't think it's near as good as the original series but I don't think it's so mediocre that it should be wip...

Re: How did BoG and RF exhibit in Western cinemas?

My theater played them dubbed. IIRC subbed wasn't an option. It might be for Broly though, since they're doing both for My Hero Academia.

Re: Why didn't Roshi train to prepare for the Saiyans?

He wasn't invited to Kami's Lookout. I guess he could've trained by himself, but this is the man who took 50 years to learn the Kamehameha when it took Goku, Krillin, and Yamcha way less than that.

They don't have another reason to release it again right now, but DBZ's 30th anniversary is next year so maybe they'll do it around then.

Vegeta attaining UI by the end of the tournament makes sense because that means the Potara would be used to get UI Vegito.

I didn't think anything of it at the time, but this would explain why Greg Ayres is playing Frost in Super, wouldn't it? I figured it was just to have Frost and Freeza sound slightly different, but it may just have been because Chris wasn't well? I'm glad he's getting much more money than expected, ...
