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

It's interesting to look back and see how often authors recycled material from before. Toyotaro does it a lot but Toriyama shouldn't be exempt from accusation as he's taken shortcuts himself. https://i.imgur.com/i1RihS4.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ut0Oym0.png https://i.imgur.com/208jpwQ.jpg https://i.i...

Re: Bandai's Dragon Ball Super Card Game (ENG)

There was a thead when it was first announced but it died pretty soon. I am not surprised you can only find discussions on FB, things like this seem best discussed on social, I wasted 2 years trying to mantain a merch thread on here until I realised there was way more merch loving people over on Twi...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Goku once trusted the entire fate of the universe to Goten and Trunks yet apparently there is an issue for some people with him trusting Goten with a tractor? :roll: This is what I mean people are so scared to be critical of the original series yet complain about the stupidest things for modern DB. ...

Re: So, have you finally accepted that this is Saiyan show now?

Perfect example is Videl people talk about how modern DB ruined her character except she was ruined in the same arc she was introduced when she was relegated to just being Gohan's love interest on the sidelines, it's funny when people talk about how "badass" Videl was they never mention anything po...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

How is the time frame holding back DB? For starters, they can't kill off anyone who's alive in EOZ. They can't do anything drastic with the status quo that doesn't line up with EOZ. The tension levels will always be low because we know everyone and everything will be OK thanks to EOZ. Cast will nev...

Re: So, have you finally accepted that this is Saiyan show now?

The Saiyans have become front and center, and have (indirectly) pushed the Namekians and humans into the background. But I think that may have been inevitable when they were introduced. Even when they were introduced, the others were still used in meaningful ways. Piccolo for example was sometimes ...

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

Well, it was bound to happen. Bandai has been advertising Migatte no Goku'i for two-plus years now, they're ready to move on to a new form. I doubt they are and even then it is the manga so nothing is gonna get marketed anyway, thankfully. It has been 5 years and SSGSS is still the main mascot form...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

More onto TheNingen brilliant post, it seems Thunderbird purposely ignoring instances during the original run when editors would tell Toriyama to change things that they didn't like or think could have marketing ie Androids being human looking and so worked Cell into the story.

Re: Did The BOG & ROF Films *Need* To Be Remade As Arcs For DBS?

Absolutely and in case of BoG it dramatically improved on the "movie" version. (In fact BoG arc is my most re-watched ard of DBS!) You can get away with movies continuing on from TV but not the other way around so I fully expect Broly to be retold or recapped in some degree if DBS returns as a serie...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

It's not creatively bankrupt, BoG was totally fresh for the franchise. However the rest of Super likes to redo old villains/ideas or tackle ideas fans have been asking for (eg. Evil Goku). Even this new Moro arc isn't totally new, since Moro as a villain is pretty much King Piccolo meets Cell/Buu. ...

Re: 20 years ago today DBZ first aired in the UK

I remember we ended up changing TV providers and my folks didn't opt for the kids package and thought CBBC and Cbeebies was sufficient enough... sadly I missed a majority of the Buu arc until bored one day flicking through the channels came across CNX and they aired the episode Buu turned Vegetto in...

Re: Is Godku a thing any more

Super for me is littered with a lot of problems but i'll be the first to say they are showing improvement with the likes of the Moro arc and Broly movie. However the power scaling is lost on most of us I feel. Hope in future stuff is shown better. Great improvement. Broly's production is leaps and ...

Re: SSGSS Evolution is a Disgustingly Bad, Ugly Transformation

in the movie he abandons his pride ... You're consistently missing the point, so I'll break this down as much as possible: Pride and conviction aren't synonymous. I was specifically talking about Vegeta's conviction and devotion to his family, neither of which were "abandoned" in Battle of Gods. Th...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

Dragon Ball isn’t an ensemble show. So there’s that. Goku's the clear main character but there's multiple arcs where he's not even really a participant until the very end. Toriyama tries to show off the supporting cast often and even tries to make Gohan the main character, but he just doesn't pull ...
