Re: Why Does everyone Take Dragon Ball So Seriously?

most of us fans just enjoy watching cool fights and seeing the franchise continue I wish someone could actually take a moment to explain why exactly they think it is that just seeing something continue on for its own sake, irrespective of content or quality, is seen as such a desirable end unto its...

Cultures and settings in the series

I think one of the most interesting things about the series is how Toriyama created a world that is like our own yet so different at the same time. What are the different cultures potrayed in the series? If I recall we see Middle Eastern, South Eas Asian, Indian, various East Asian cultures through ...

Re: Why Does everyone Take Dragon Ball So Seriously?

The people who complain about Super on this site and on youtube and other platforms are a vocal minority who consume and analyze the franchise differently than the vast majority of fans. The franchise is not disliked. Believe it or not most of us fans just enjoy watching cool fights and seeing the f...

Re: Why Does everyone Take Dragon Ball So Seriously?

I don't mind BS power ups, since thats one of charms of shounen ;) What i don't like however, is breaking estabilished rules, first you say evil being are going to hell as souls or get reincarnated if they wre really bad, and then you have Freeza and others keeping their bodies, and then Freeza hav...

Re: Did Zamasu ever care about Gowasu? (in the anime and manga)

Zamasu by this point was a fanatic. He was committed to the cause that he believed in and this meant getting rid of anyone in the way. While at least in the Anime when we first meet him he seems to respect his master. But as the story progresses he begins to question his master until he is so consum...

Re: Canonizing the Broly Movies?

Nope, pretty sure that this is a complete reboot of the character which is good. Hopefully this new take on him will have more.depth and be more than just a awful Sayain stereotype

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

Hmm, the designs of the characters remind me of the Cell and Frieza arc and the fact that Piccolo has been revealed talongside Goku and Vegeta leads me to believe that maybe this story is set in the past? Like before the Cell arc. Or maybe an alternate timeline. Who knows, it would certianly be a go...

Everyone has saga's that they like or dislike but what changes would you make to the sagas you dislike to the point where you actaully might like them?

How would you change power levels in the series?

Dragonball has a major issue with power creep. Characters get stonger and stronger from Saga to Saga and quite frankly even for a fictional show it becomes really unrealistic for characters to keep on increasing their power levels exponetioallly all the time. Worst off certain characters are left in...

Re: Could the tournament have been better if it were not a Battle Royal?

I think that a mix between battle Royale and team battles may have worked better. So divide the tournament into 3 stages. The first stage would be a battle Royale, after 48 minutes the top 4 Universes go through to the next round, the rest get erased. You could do this in fewer episodes and the adva...

Re: If Toriyama had stuck to his original plan for the Android saga?

I think Gero may have ended up being similar to Cell, I have a feeling that many of the concepts that Toriyama used for Cell may be used for Gero, for example Gero was an energy absorbing model which was later used again with Cell but in a more macarbe way. So lets say that after 19 is destroyed and...

Could the tournament have been better if it were not a Battle Royal?

Just to preface this by saying that I do love the Universal Survival arc as it is. But I do think it was weird turning it into a battle Royale. Before the arc began many of us thought the tournament would involve one on one team battles between Universes like the Dark Tournament in Yu Yu Hakusho. Wo...

Re: What do you wish was done differently now that Super is over?

Nothing really. Just change the timing of the tournament of power from 48 minutes to 24 hours. Goku needing to rest for a few hours to get back ultra instincted makes more sense then being able to do it in a few minutes.

Re: The Manga is always way better than the anime

This is silly. They are two completly different mediums, comparing them doesn't make sense. Manga and anime both have strengths and weaknesses compared to each other. Its basically like comparing apples to oranges. Its better to compare things that are the same format though. For example in my opini...

I can't wait for Super to end so that we don't have to keep on explaining the same old stuff evety single week. For the last time, Super is consistantly in the top 10 most watched animes and has been so since episode one. It is usually the number 2 shounen after One Piece. Baruto, My Hero Academia a...

Re: Could Vegeta be a descendant of Yamoshi?

The Saiyan population was always very small, its almost inevitable that over time all Saiyans would be related distantly and its perfectly possible that most Saiyans have some of Yamoshi's blood. For example, despite being dead for 800 years 1 in every 200 men is a decendant of Gengis Khan, it goes ...

Re: If you are upset about chapter 34 You should tweet at Toyotaro.

I think the DB community is in shock over how characters we know and love were handle in a way as one of the no names in the tournament. The tournament was hyped up as a chance to see the OG characters get some shine. Yet it was completely wasted and basically shit on by Toyotaro. We live in a soci...
