Re: At first I didn't care, but now I really wish for Toei to animate Moro arc...

If it was gonna be animated it would have been now, I have said for the billionth time there is no rush for new animated material and the anime is considered the main product they are not gonna allow the manga to sit there with an entire arc done and then adapt it. They didn't even want Toyo to touc...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Manga sales, compared to the anime

This is so silly. Anime release was ¥10-14k per volume while the manga is only a couple hundred yen... It's literally as apples and oranges as you can get, not to even mention the success of the anime wasn't dependant on anime sales. And then you realize the manga volumes made x7 the revenue (¥1,36...

Re: DB and Nostalgia

I no longer have any nostalgic attachments to DB and as a result my opinions on the franchise have changed drastically for example I absolutely hate the Z anime, I cannot stand the Cell arc in general, I cannot also stand the old dub anymore. I guess realised that I can be critical of the franchise ...

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

Toei's animation calendar for 2021 got revealed and DB was last in the Nov/Dec slot with ToP stuff which implies we ain't getting anything in 2021 otherwise why would DB be last and be ToP? I get spoilers but if there was a new series why not have DB be the first month with ToP stuff. It also didn't...

Re: Is it fair to say that Dragon Ball is no longer marketed to kids in North America?

Dragon Ball isn't aimed at kids peroid anymore. Hence why Toei don't have to put a show on air to make DB relevant anymore they have established fans that aren't going anywhere. Back in Kai days more or less all the merch was aimed at kids but nowadays it's all aimed at the adult fans, heck the one ...

Re: I really hate Beerus arc

The BoG retelling completely shits on the piece of crap that is the movie version. The main thing is they fixed Beerus, in the movie they constantly just told us he is this super scary god but in the retelling we saw him doing GoD things before he even went to Kaio's planet! That already adds more t...

Re: Shintani's style doesn't do it for me

Yuya Takahashi would be better but Shintani is cool too, even though some characters may look younger than they should be. We need a talented counterpart like that for the writing department. Current Toriyama and Toyotaro aren't good enough. Toriyama's fine his issue is letting Toei and Toyotaro do...

Re: SAY-IN - SPECIAL BEAM CAN-IN - SUN GOKU - DESTRUCTO DISK | Why does Dragon Ball STILL suffer with these shortcomings

The whole deal with Toei mandating that dub terms must be used for subs going forward was just so mind boggling, as it's basically thing the same FUNi did when they first started releasing bilingual DVDs back in 2000. For some reason even though Steve Simmons already had accurate translations done ...

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

Again Toriyama's SS Broly was a sublte homage it shows the difference between Toriyama and everyone else. Look I love Shintani but he should have stayed out of it and his stupid FP Broly threatened to ruin the film, this is not the Broly of old IT IS IN NAME ONLY and the this stupid green form born ...

it's 2020 and there is still no Kale merch the woman that most people on here claimed was only made to "sell toys". Because Kale bombed as a character in terms of populairty and likely decided to just fully reboot Broly instead. Err, Broly was in development before the arc started. Anyway Kale "pop...

Re: General Website Goofs/Errors

Regarding the History of Rivals post the ticket price reads 1,800yen instead of 800. Also Banpresto don't exist anymore Bandai Spirits absorbed them and only use the Banpresto branding for prize figures. Also think it might be worth mentioning that the SSGSS Goku is a re issue from the March 2018 Ic...

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

I don't think the inclusion of the Full-Power form was any different from, say, including Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan God. I legitimately don't see Toriyama writing anything other than "Broli forces Vegeta to use Super Saiyan and after they fight some more Gokuu steps in and fights as a Super Sai...

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

To me it seems all Toei did was shoehorn the form within the script instead of adjusting the script to accommodate the form and to justify it. Maybe that's what Toriyama assumed they would do. At the end of the day it's all about execution, changes are fine if they are done right or even potentially...

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

Toriyama needs to stop giving his stamps out. Like with Toyotaro and Vegetto he should have told Shintani no to FP Broly instead of "okay but don't make him too muscley" it is quite clear now Toriyama's SS Broly with no pupils was his version of an homage and homages are perfect when done like that ...

Your comment would make sense of Toei ONLY cared about quality. But I don't think that's what will happen. I don't think Toei suddenly has turned into a company only caring about quality.

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

Ultra Instinct was revealed first in Xenoverse 2 ahead of the anime. The whole “main product” talking point (which I’m probably extremely responsible for?) is completely irrelevant and doesn’t even make sense to bring up with the current state of the franchise’s production. No single version is a c...

DB is making more money right now than it ever did on air, it doesn't need to come back. If the manga is going to be adapted it would've been by now. Toei's decision to not bring back Super has nothing to do with the manga, it's all about timing and finances. Once the anime does return, there's no ...

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

I know Toyo isn't and probably never will be nearly as good as Toriyama, but we gotta keep an open mind. As much as I love Toriyama's original work, he's become a corporate yes man now, so Toyotaro taking over completely will be nothing but good news for the franchise. If the Moro arc is anything t...
