Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

In regards to Freeza and Goku. Goku said he spent most of his time mastering Shunkan Ido and Super Saiyan. I only put him marginally stronger than on Namek. Freeza isn't even sure he can beat Goku by himself so that says it all about his power gain. Chapter: 330 (DBZ 136), P13.3-4 Cold: “The Earthli...

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

You know that Monaito didn't need to say the truth to Granolah for him not to work for the Heeters? There's a million ways he could have gone about it instead of letting Granolah work for the people he would detest the most. Saying nothing is awful and puts Granolah in danger all the same. If these ...

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

Did they not talk business or something, otherwise this is a glaring plot hole. I wish people didn't look at stories this way. CinemaSins and other such channels have rotted story analysis to this level. Instead of jumping to the "this is a plothole" conclusion, why not look at the characters? Why ...

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

So Monaito knew about the Heeters connection with the murder of their people and failed to mention this to Granolah? Did they not talk business or something, otherwise this is a glaring plot hole. The Heeters appearance in the past is also somewhat forced, seems to be there to justify a whole of cha...

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

Why is it implied having Goku softened him up? Raditz was born before even showing up in the the panel, what changed? I think Goku must have reminded Bardock of someone. And maybe that someone was also called Kakarot, which is why he had no hesitation when coming up with a name on the spot? As it i...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

Goku in Super has been stagnant; worst inconsistently written. His character struggle to find a new savior of Earth has been dropped, he's aimless besides the ever present need to be stronger. So yeah, I want him to take a step back if there's more interesting characters. Dragon Ball is partially a...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

Pan powering up got me the most hyped, followed by Piccolo getting so much attention. I really hope Goku spends most of the movie punching Broly in Beerus planet and doesn't show up much. I hope this too. I would like it a lot if the movie focused on Pan and Piccolo co. vs Red Ribbon on Earth while...

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

I don’t think Goku has the rhetorical skill to change the mind of someone like Granolah in that way. His way of changing others is simply beating them with martial arts, something he couldn’t do. Not to mention that Goku wouldn’t be able to empathize with Granolah as much as Vegeta. Monaito could s...

It would be so much better if Goku was the reason for Granolah's change, if there's a Saiyan who has receipts about being a decent person it's Goku.

Can't wait for them to make Bardock a time-traveler like in the special and the first ever SSG plus SSJ. Make him even the strongest Hakaishin ever before Beerus and the creator of Ultra Ego. What else? I don't know, crap writing as unlimited potential just like Bardock. :thumbup: Jokes aside, a sin...

Y'all think Bardock is coming back? I think Bardock is coming back.
I'd probably tap out of the series with exception of video games and the upcoming movie. That's would be just..., so..., soulless.

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

That's not fan service. If a character is being involved in the main plot, that is the exact opposite. Considering that Granolah is connected to the Saiyans past, it absolutely makes sense for characters from that period to make a reappearance. I don't care for what they're doing to Bardock, but it...

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

That doesn't mean it'll be bad. The Future Trunks arc and Broly film exist because those were popular characters. Broly is a good comparison since he was a blank slate in Toriyama's story, and while I hated the concept, I loved the end result. We got a glimpse of Bardock in Broly, but we don't know...

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

Why mustn't we? Bardock killed a lot of people, so it is only natural it would reverberate onto his son eventually. Well, the only thing "reverberating" now is the exact opposite of that, but still... Bardock's actions must have some effect on Goku, for better or worse. You can't not have that. Bec...

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

Chapter was alright in a vacuum. Unfortunately it had the effect of deflating my interest in the arc. Why must we explore Bardock? A dead character, who was truly never relevant and will not appear ever again(I hope :silent: ). If a Saiyan showing a smidge of humanity is necessary to turn Granolah o...

At least they weren't playing it safe with Freeza in ToP, because his character was different there to all the other times and it turned out great. But now he's absent for way too long, when he could be used to spice up the story. Freeza's unnecessary return has been mitigated by his later appearan...

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

Hot take Incoming: Akira Toriyama was carried by his editors. The Buu Saga shows that. Its the only arc in Z thats written by an unrestricted Toriyama and its Trash. We know Toyotaro is capable of good writing so if you gave Toyotaro more freedom while hiring a good editor you'd get a better manga....

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

Unless the Heeters plan mixes with this battle right now and Freeza/others external factors are ignored, there's too much not to assume this is at best the half of the arc when the fight concludes.
