Re: Dragon Ball Super Movie #2: "Super Hero" Coming 2022! (Toriyama Scripting!)

But why do people think it won't be good already? If they are indeed taking focus away from Goku and Vegeta and trying something new, both story wise and with 3D, then than means they are taking some risks and it's kinda the opposite of money grubbing. They literally said in the teaser thing that t...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Movie #2: "Super Hero" Coming 2022! (Toriyama Scripting!)

So, everyone is excited that they maintained Goku’s rotating hair in CGI, right? ...right? (The big part is always angled away from the viewer in there-quarters and profile shots, even if that means it switches sides, as in the manga.) Yeah, I'm glad they chose to do this. Games can get away with t...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Movie #2: "Super Hero" Coming 2022! (Toriyama Scripting!)

There's precedent for cool CG from Toei productions. I'll hold out for this: https://youtu.be/LZ1PDm9bhkA I've seen people post this and another clip from Pretty Cure. While the models look really good, it's the motion I'm not too keen on. It looks a little stiff, for lack of a better word. I'm hop...

Toei does have a history of good CG...just never with Dragon Ball. Hopefully this is the project that changes that. Hopefully they'll never release Dragon Ball in cgi...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Movie #2: "Super Hero" Coming 2022! (Toriyama Scripting!)

Maybe they showed Piccolo first alongside Krillin because they wanted to point out the subtle changes they did to bring them closer to their manga look, but the fact Piccolo was also shown without the cape and is getting a home is a positive sign for all Piccolo fans out there that he will too play...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Movie #2: "Super Hero" Coming 2022! (Toriyama Scripting!)

The title will take some time getting used to, but I don't necessarily hate it. I've seen people claim that the characters we've seen artwork for first ( Piccolo & Krillin & Pan ) will be the main cast or something like that, and while I do wish they will get a lot of focus, I don't think them bein...

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

I fairly liked the chapter. Vegeta's technique ended up being essential and that was really necessary for this arc's finale, otherwise a huge chunk of the story that focused on it would've gone completely to waste. That Piccolo played a part in formulating a plan while everyone was either too concen...

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

So what you are saying he'd rather kill him à la Cell, as in while Moro is standing and fighting instead of kneeling and begging because Goku couldn't stomach doing someone in like that? I mean that is perfectly in-character for Goku and I could definitely see that being his reason instead somethin...

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

What if in the next panel, realizing Moro can't change, one punches him to death, ending the story :think: You joke, but that's genuinely how this beat reads? Goku doesn't execute downed, begging opponents, so he gives Moro the chance to go down fighting, essentially. Just in case there's a one-in-...

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

I've no idea how anyone didn't see this coming; we just had a lengthy discussion like 8 pages ago about how likely and in-character this would be. It's almost like people would rather pretend like that's not true so that they can get angry about it when it happens... :roll: Discussing that it could...

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

Remember when I thought the next call-back they were going to do was use the evil containment wave in order to avoid killing Moro. Or just plainly let him go. Good times. I have to take my hat off to them, I'm actually a little dumbstruck. I've managed to predict a lot the story beats in this arc, b...

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

I'd like to take this moment to pat myself on the back for having predicted the exact order of events - Goku gives it a go with Omen but loses- Vegeta arrives and has his moment - Goku's gets his second turn this time with mastered UI. Riveting, I know Concerning the cliffhanger - who else thinks th...

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

You can not like the reaction, but the fact is that they happened and Toriyama directly wrote it. So this is less about how Goku constantly reacts and more personal opinion on how you think Goku should react. The fact is, Goku is an uncaring adrenaline junkie most of the time. He has moments of car...

Knew someone was going to mention Upa’s dad. And no, doesn’t work. Goku was ma d sure, but not overall emotional. He also wanted to bring Bora back for Upa’s sake along with the fact Bora was indirectly killed because of him. Also, Merus died on his terms compared to Bora’s death where he was impal...

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

Again, it's not about Merus, it's about Goku. Even if 'we' didn't get to develop any attachment to Merus, knowing Goku's character is enough to at least understand where this reaction is coming from. Something like this would push him over the edge under the right circumstances. The emotional build...

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

I think you're missing my boarder point. If Goku was constantly more emotional in the Super manga, then fine. He wasn't. If anything, he's less emotional than the original manga, yet only became more emotional than usual when Toyo's personally made OC dies. Which is why the scene doesn't work for m...
