Re: How did Gohan get that much weaker between Z and Super?

Two factors. First, this first form Freeza is probably much much more powerful than DBZ First Form Freeza. Multiple times stronger. Second, we are probably to assume that Gohan hasn't trained at all since the Buu Saga. When you don't use your muscles, they weaken. So Gohan just isn't the badass he w...

Re: Is there a reason for why the DBS Manga can’t become weekly?

He may be a younger guy, but drawing a manga weekly is an incredibly heavy schedule, with very little free-time and the quality of an artist's work might even decrease due to the increased pagecount. The workload is so heavy that it's actually kinda common for artists to get sick from overwork. Ther...

Re: How would you compare Dragon Ball’s revival to something like Star Wars?

Dragon Ball's revival is much less hit or miss, so I'd say it's better. Super's pretty good all the way through aside from some crappy filler. All 3 revival movies are great. Dragon Ball Fighterz is fantastic. Kai is a great update of Z. Looking forward to that new Kakarot game. Meanwhile Star Wars ...

Re: Is There Any Difference In Power Between Vegetto & Gogeta Anymore?

It used to be that Potara fusions were significantly stronger than the dance fusions, but I think for Super Toriyama retconned that and said that the fusions are equally strong.

So to answer your question, no, it seems like they're equal.

Re: Why isn't Piccolo as strong or even stronger than Android 17 currently is?

Super's power-scaling generally makes no sense, so chances are there's no explanation. Roshi holds his own against Freeza's army even though he's Raditz-tier at best. I like the manga's use of Cell Jr.s, so I'm gonna go with that. Maybe there's something in 17's body or programming that makes traini...

Overall really solid chapter. I liked the stuff with Whis and Merus, the Vegeta training stuff is great too. I wonder if the gator guy is related to Zarbon, they both have a forehead necklace thing too.

Re: Trunks fusing with himself from the other timeline.

Just because they are the same person doesn't mean they're not two different people. Same DNA, different life experiences. Like identical twins separated at birth.

Twins would still separate, so Trunks and Trunks would still separate also.

Re: Evil Buu is Kid Buu?

This is the one major plot hole I've noticed in the entirety of DB. If Evil Buu absorbs Fat Buu, and Vegeta rips Fat Buu out, he should've just turned back to Evil Buu. As far as I know there's no explanation as to why Kid Buu appears instead of Evil Buu. It's a plot hole. Grey Buu wears Dai Kaioshi...

Re: Things that grind your gears

That DBZ isn't on any of the regular streaming services here in the U.S. It's on Funimation but I'm not getting that for one show. The way Kai was treated in general. Inconsistent score, the redrawings look so soft they might as well not even be HD aside from the Ginyu-Freeza 35mm episodes. Buu Kai ...

Re: A proposal about the future of Dragonball

What OP's suggesting seems kind of refreshing though. Super goes past EoZ and Uub/Pan/Goten/Trunks becomes really prominent characters, while the alternate Z can put a bunch of twists on a Cell/Buu retelling, with room for completely brand new arcs set in that time period.

Unrelated question: How hard on the throat is being a VA for Dragon Ball? I don't know for sure but I'd imagine very. Especially in Z where there'd be minutes straight of just screaming.

Plus he doesn't really have much of a moveset, so they'd have to make animations/attacks up. Toppo, Kefla, Raditz, Dabura is a solid pack. Roshi, Zarbon, Mercenary Tao, King Piccolo, Android 19, Omega Shenron could all be solid picks too. Chi-Chi would be low on moveset ideas but she'd probably be c...

Reading some of the reactions to Broly's recasting, you'd think Broly was an interesting character and this was like replacing Downey as Iron Man. Super Broly is actually pretty interesting for DB standards. But Vic only played that version of the character for one film, so his recasting isn't like...

It should end when they get to a good stopping point and tie up the loose threads. The anime ending with Goku reviving space Hitler is a very large loose thread. The movie that sets up a rematch between Broly and Freeza is also a loose thread. So they're clearly not there yet. Plus seeing a U6 Plane...

Re: It's actually amazing that DBZ was successful on Japanese TV

It was my understanding that most fans at the time were reading the manga and the anime was more supplementary, and that's why they were so ballsy with spoiling things in NEPs/episode titles.

Although I definitely wasn't there so someone correct me if I'm wrong

Do we have an explanation or even a theory as to why they threw on some fake grain? Why add fake grain instead of just turning down the DNR to leave a comparable amount of actually real grain? Was it too late to go back and fix so they threw on fake grain to trick us?

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Going super serious/gritty with Dragon Ball is the exact opposite of what they should do. Especially since the series itself doesn't get serious until the King Piccolo arc. Also serious/gritty =/= quality. Dark Knight and Joker are fantastic gritty films. Man of Steel ESPECIALLY BvS comes off like c...
