I don't have a clue what you mean.
Goku was far stronger than Uub EoZ, even if we pay no consideration to DBSuper.
That's not immediately obvious. Uub doesn't know how to use his strength and is getting stronger as the battle progresses. Goku stops it before it goes too far.

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

It can if done right and can enhance the experience. Take the use of Bail Organa in Rogue One, and how in his last appearance in that movie he talked about going to Alderaan. Anyone who has seen the original Star Wars (commonly known today as A New Hope) will then watch that movie again and it will...

Except the point about Goku having far surpassed Buu by that point.
A fact that predates Super even being a thought in anyone's mind. Yet, here Uub was in the story.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Fair enough, though I do think it's a fair statement to say the strategies were more interesting.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The climax of the first dragon ball hunt is also all strategy. From Oolong cheating Pilaf out of a wish to Yamcha holding Oozaru Goku in place long enough for Puar to cut off his tail. While I do still think that overall power battle is the deciding factor in who wins throughout DB, there was a lot...

Man that bar for great keeps getting lower and lower. The naked fanservice and the lackluster fight are pretty damning.

I don't even think it was potential as much as latent. He was growing stronger as the fight went along.
There's nothing to take that significance away.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Indeed. Similarly, most of the Tenkaichi Budoukai matches were won with clever technique or other smart fighting, rather than raw strength. Thats not true, the only victories that came from any sort of real "strategy" that I can recall off head were Roshi turning the Wolf back into a man using Kril...

Re: Is being attracted to a Dragon Ball character considered weird?

Being called 'honey' by anyone other than my mom makes me feel uncomfortable. You wouldn't want your partner/spouse to call you honey? But not as uncomfortable as imagining detailed rape scenarios, even those involving fictional characters. Sometimes you just wanna be a female knight who gets captu...

Guldo didn't lose because someone stronger defeated him. He was killed because Vegeta cheated and killed him when his attention was on Kuririn and Gohan.

I'm planning on watching Dragon Ball Super and some other anime. I'm planning on streaming them through Crunchyroll and FUNimationnow via my Roku. What have your experiences with those two streaming services?

Re: My biggest issue with Super

Again, incorrect. Buu was the being Goku thought was the strongest in the universe. As it turns out, he wasn't anywhere close. How does that ending work when he faces WAY stronger opponents after Buu? Easy: Uub came back way more powerful than Buu. I get the logic, but it doesn't work thematically ...

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 3 - DB episodes 11-15

Kuririn's introduction is perfect Toriyama. The filler makes it even better. We're lead to believe he's fearsome only to have expectations subverted. He's also one of my favorite characters in all of DB.

Re: My biggest issue with Super

I disagree in the sense that the story never stated what Uub's true power actually is relative to anything except Goku. So long as Goku keeps surmounting opponents (which at this point is a list of three: Beerus, Whis and Jiren), then we still get to an ending where Goku is looking for his next str...

Re: What if dragon ball was a comic book series?

They aren't separate mediums from comics and animated series, but then I guess you could call them sub-mediums. They aren't genres, and there's no kinds of stories that are inherent to manga or anime. They can be whatever they want. Manga and Anime just denotes being made in Japan. Exactly. :) That...
