Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

He is talking about the trio of Cheelai, Lemo and Broly. Nothing implies we won't see Broly on his own without them.

Re: Do you actually believe that we are currently in some second Dragon Ball golden age?

It feels like Dragon Ball right has never been this popular, I would argue this is it's Golden Age. When your series is so popular and successful that new material isn't actually required, you know you've done something right! One Piece last year with a new movie and a new arc tv series while DB had...

Re: Do you think introducing the silver haired version of UI was a mistake?

I loved UI when it first appeared wanted it to be silver from the start, but now the form's popularity and being over marketed made me like it less, which I know may sound silly but if people have known for a while know that I let marketing (and lack of) affect my narrative opinion on things, simila...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I feel like Toriyama lost trust in Toei after the disaster Super was, and has thus decided that in the future they will have to go back to adapting the manga as they did back in the 80s. Honestly this could be a good decision, especially for those of us who seek a more consistent product between bo...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Lol imagine my shock. I have said it for months now DBS doesn't need to return on air. Right now they are making more off DBS then when it was ACTUALLY airing. So why air the show and incur production costs? The franchise isn't aimed at kids anymore no matter how much Toei say so, it doesn't need to...

Re: Why hasn't Funi released the 2018 remastered movies yet?

Nobody considers DBS "a masterpiece" or at least certainly not to the extent where you can begin to generalise. Your using Hyperbole to get your frankly quite ridiculous view about DBS success, people simply just enjoyed the series stop trying to look for ridiculous reasons otherwise "oh must the ti...

Re: Is admitting to have watched and liked Super like admitting to have done something 'naughty'?

People on the internet think it's hip to hate DBS, it's almost 2020 we had the phenomenally animated Broly movie and people still can't f**king let go of #5 But thankfully I realised the people on the internet are a minute fraction of the actual proper fan base. The DBS retellings were a colossal su...

Re: Toei and Bandai release 2nd Quarter Financials for 2019: DB still on top

Kinda makes me worried they think they don't have to produce more TV series. Franchise isn't aimed at kids anymore, With all the censorship in the anime you'd think it is. Did Toei change their marketing strategy? That's the frustrating thing, Toei are still using the kids excuse when it suits them...

Kinda makes me worried they think they don't have to produce more TV series. That's exactly why they ain't in rush. DB starting making more money once the show ended in March 2018 and has been on upward spiral ever since. Franchise isn't aimed at kids anymore, it doesn't need to be on air to stay r...

Re: Looks like Japan have finally ditched the Son "Gokou" spelling!

I suspect this change is related to how Toei started pushing for Funimation's names in the subtitles earlier this year, which I suspect is part of some push from Toei to have consistent branding worldwide. I'm guessing the goal to ensure that Goku is Goku is Goku, no matter where you look, and they...

Context since 2017 any overseas releases the spellings of Gokou changed to Goku however the Japanese version spellings always remained Gokou ... until now it seems!

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

Super Broly was awesome and the Zamasu arc is one of the most interesting DB storylines, even if it had some flaws (really, they dimension hop TWICE and get their asses kicked TWICE) and the fight choreography was mostly lackluster. I didn't really like BoG but you can't say it wasn't a fresh addit...

It has extremely likeable characters that resonate with people of all ages, world building that captivates the imagination, and at the same time ...

Re: ss4 started trend of overdesigned fan fictiony forms

The word “edgy” seems to get used a lot to describe things that people don’t like. I wouldn’t describe SSJ4 as “edgy”, but I will agree that it’s probably not something Toriyama would’ve ever come up with. Still, I think SSJ3 is just as much at fault in leading to this once popular trend of overly ...

Re: The future of Kaioken Blue and Blue Evolution

Dragon Ball Super Broly was written by Toriyama, while the anime only followed an outline by Toriyama. The Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken transformation was a TOEI thing, so it shouldn't be surprising that Toriyama didn't use a transformation he didn't come up with. Of course, Toriyama also didn't origi...

Just because Funimation give them to another company to sell doesn't mean it's ok to print more copies. They're not "printing more copies" of the original set though, they're releasing a localised version in another market. You have to enter a UK shipping address to even order this version. They ar...
