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

Loved this chapter (for reasons I'm sure many here are aware of :D) I'm a little apprehensive about this "spirit" thing as far as what technique they are planning to give Vegeta is concerned cuz I sure hope it's not splitting and growing bigger (we've seen these techniques before) Anyway, the introd...

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

Really surprised with how strong they've made Meerus. He's shaping up to be this arc's Android 17 (even kinda looks like him) Goku kinda makes it seem like there something else going on with him, so maybe there's a reason why he's that strong aside from shock factor Also, yay, looks like some thing...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Someone mentioned that Ajay tweeted something about finding out that what he was told was wrong. I'm not sure if he ever elaborated on whether he meant release date or the existence of the series as a whole. Either way, we can at least rest assured that something will follow , be it a movie or a se...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Just wanted to point out that Ryota Nakamura, who served as series director for Super when the Universal Survival arc began with Tatsuya Nagamine and then was the sole series director when Nagamine was appointed as director for DBS Broly, is an assistant director for the One Piece Stampede movie. A...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Looks like DBS 2.0 ain't happening in Jan 2020 either from December onwards they've gone back to marketing the Trunks arc again... Both pre & post Broly release the producers talked about movies not a series, Toei denied a new series countless times maybe just maybe the actual people in charge were...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Toei Animation reports that the results of Dragon Ball's profits are falling and One Piece is back to overtake him. I would say "it makes no sense to produce a new TV series because Dragon Ball continues to sell anyway" is... well, bullshit. Source: http://corp.toei-anim.co.jp/files/IR/32_1Q/202003...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

I've been a bit out of the loop the past few weeks so I'm not really up-to-date - what's the consensus regarding the series now. Before people were sure that the series is being worked and that it exists and only the time for an official announcement was up in the air. Is the existence of this supp...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Dragon Ball works better as a weekly TV show. Having a movie every 2 year would kill all the hype Super generated. We should be getting movies AND a TV show. It would give us fans more content and it would also make Toei a lot of money - definitely much more than what One Piece does, yet it’s still...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Huh, I didn't think about the fact that no one from TOEI is attending SDCC. Yeah, that makes an announcement less likely but I guess not impossible? Were TOEI staff present last year when the Broly trailer was released. I know it dropped on TOEI's site first but the event for it was at an US convent...

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

Chapter's out. I still have to ruminate on my feelings toward it, but my initial reaction to it was "meh". There is one line that I'd like to discuss though Esca mentioning that his people can assimilate others, but not split. I wonder if that was intentional or Toyotaro simply forgot about Kami/Pic...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

You and some guys have been saying all the time that Piccolo Jr and Daimao can't be the same person because they're a bit different, well, Daimao and Kami are completely different and they're still the same person, so that argument is invalid. I mean, if you say Piccolo Jr can't be Daimao by any me...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

I think they're different Namakians, just that one got the memories of his father. If somehow your father managed to give you all his memories, you'll still be your own person at the end of the day. That's pretty much what I think too, that the whole reincarnation bit was before the introduction of...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Doesn't matter if they exaggerated the blast zone, it was still a huge blast that would've killed hundreds if not thousands and more to the point, he showed zero remorse. I've looked at the manga and not only did it not say the whole island evacuated in time, but there's nothing that shows Piccolo ...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

the death toll is called out by proxy of Chaiotzu having to explain how he survived (they evacuated the hospital!), Wait, what is Chaozu's exact line? Does he say the whole city evacuated? If the extent of his explanation is the people in the hospital got out, that makes sense to me and doesn't cla...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

I understand the differences in characterization, but Piccolo is clearly evil and doesn't care about collateral damage. I don't read this lack of a body count as Toriyama's characterization of the new Piccolo as much as him trying to protect Piccolo by making the death toll a lot lower. The Piccolo...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

The moon thing worked as a joke for when Dragon Ball was a gag manga, but after the 21st TB this approach is put on the back-burner to focus more on the adventure element (I honestly feel that's why Toriyama decided to revisit the Dragon Ball quest again as the third arc). Certainly by the time Dai...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

And yet he reverses that position with Vegeta , who is arguably even worse than Piccolo. Piccolo has the excuse of being a literal personification of evil. Vegeta chose to do what he did and his massacres aren't limited to a single planet. Yet, he has a redemption arc. Yes, Piccolo redemption was p...
