Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

My point isn’t that they were doing badly just that there hasn’t been any real big hits at least with figure merchandise in awhile. Granted I think more variety in figures can be created with older material but Bandai just doesn’t seem interested in doing that. I don't know what counts as big hits ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Merchandise sales are not an all time high. If anything if you follow figures sales they aren’t doing as good as they were when new material was coming out. The last figures that did really well were UI Goku when he first came out and movie stuff especially FP Broly. But now they are stuck in a rut...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

mind how poorly Toei and Bandai Namco treat their most profitable franchise. Like it's been already stated, DBS merch sales are at an all time high without there being a series -> this is an ideal business situation. Max profit, minimal cost. Now they can focus on their other IPs like Digimon in or...

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

It's good but I wouldn't say extremely popular. I actually thought it had passed the 1 mill mark a long time ago :?

I'm really curious if the worldwide release of Manga Plus will affect the sales and general popularity. DBS is doing well and always in the top 10.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Oh yes, i'm pretty sure DBS isn't returning soon, i'm just intrigued by that 9 AM slot. We know it's not DQ since it's coming in October and World Trigger is on a different channel. You have any info on that ? Absolutely nothing, I'm afraid. The thing is, Kitaro's one of those shows that can be ext...

I'm going to laugh so hard that I'd cry if they just throw a shitty Buu Kai version of the 1986 series in the 9AM slot for six months.
Heh, Toei acknowledging the original DB series would actually impress me at this point.

Along with what Nanatsu88 said, the only information we've heard from people working on the production of Super 2 from what some consider to be credible sources, (Whether or not you believe them isn't the point, this is just what they're claiming) is that basically everyone involved did a 180 and s...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

It's not entirely impossible theoretically, Toriyama however would have to rewrite the plot to make it fit in a movie. But ... Wouldn't they want to surprise the fanbase with something "new" after years without animated content? I mean .. they already have over-stretched the story big time in the m...

Lol imagine my shock. If we get a new movie in 2021 that happens within the continuity after the Moro arc ... You think they are gonna adapt the Moro-arc in anime format after that? I don't think so. I keep thinking.....what if the movie IS the Moro story ? Even if it's been almost two years ...the...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Lol imagine my shock. I have said it for months now DBS doesn't need to return on air. Right now they are making more off DBS then when it was ACTUALLY airing. So why air the show and incur production costs? The franchise isn't aimed at kids anymore no matter how much Toei say so, it doesn't need t...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

It's been that way for over a decade. Thanks for the info. Guess that means we'll have to wait until February (?) to find out. I generally don't think there's a series in production anymore, however. The movie is evidently not coming out this year either evidently. That would also be asking a bit m...

That series is MAPPA, so it won't take the Sunday slot. I see, so those early Sunday slots are reserved for Toei exclusively? It's been that way for over a decade. Thanks for the info.

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

I kinda clicked here by accident but I might as well- reverse expectations I suspect. The character that seemed like everybody forgot about ending up being so relevant and the last man standing was unexpected. They never went into detail as to why he was as strong as he was (I think the manga tried ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

But TOEI themselves did nothing to mislead anyone. But apparantly a large number of people are. And that's not TOEI's fault. It's fine to be angry, just don't direct it at someone who didn't deserve it. If you organize two DBS Anime special stages at Jump Festa, you surely can expect this creates s...

I agee they shouldn't harrass him. But Horikawa should realize he is talking to a world-wide fanbase [/b]when he is posting such ambigious stuff. I don't think that's fair. Especially since the only tweet of his that could vaguely be interpreted as being related to DB was the one with the TOEI meet...
