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...

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

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...

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

Except the Buu one was hardly the only example and most of them are examples from Toriyama's original manga, who should know Goku better than any of us. And this is the portrayal that is the most constant to Goku's character. He only really gets upset when people he knows for a very long time gets ...

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

Because Goku hate bullies who used their power to terrorized people weaker than them. Same reason he was mad at Vegeta killing the Ginyu Force despite them nearly killing his son. Thing is, if you look at Goku's history of getting pissed. As I pointed out in another post, Goku didn't get this angry...

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

This will sound weird, but for most part Goku always seemed to me like everyone is same to him, be they his own family, or friends, or enemies, like he doesn't really have anyone who is actually important to him, or whom he really despise. That is somewhat in line with how Toriyama claims his mind ...

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

That's the problem. We don't see enough of Goku and Merus bonding to believe that Goku should be that emotional about him dying. It isn't like Goku and 17 despite only knowing each other for less than two days building a bond over the course of the TOP so when Goku thought 17 died it felt genuine. ...

Re: Vegeta spents most of the time being a douchebag in the orginal manga,does a 180 and never suffers for his crimes

No, he really doesn't. However, and I feel like I've bringing this up again and again lately, DB never bothers itself with these sort of moral conundrums. Whenever I read an interview of Toriyama's and he says something like" the DB main cast are mostly bad people than seem like good people" I think...

Okay, I'm going to be honest here. The emotional beat ...kinda worked for me. I was not invested in Meerus at all, but his send off was, IMO, pretty well handled. And Goku's reaction is appropriate.
