Re: Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

How was he more mature? He still puts his love of battle above the fate of the universe and if you don't see SSJ3 as a retcon, he allows vegeta to goad him into a pissing contest for nothing. Instead of dealing with the threat he helped create he passes the buck to young kids. That doesn't show mat...

Re: Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

That's vague. What made him more like him in DB and DBZ? Because as far as I can tell much of it stems from a mistaken belief that he grew more serious and out of his desire for just battle. Is being more childlike in his glee for training and fighting that unlikeable? In my opinion, Goku was more ...

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

Maybe Ikemoto is the problem. The first volume of Boruto sold a fraction of Naruto's final volume. I haven't read it but I can't imagine the quality of the first few chapters was so bad that sales dropped that much. It could be because it's a new artist so Boruto is treated like more of a spin-off ...

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

Considering how the latest volume sold the least amount of copies and it isn't even half there yet (vol 13), I highly doubt it'll last an additional 17 volumes. Yeah I doubt it will but both Boruto and DBS are the two longest running series on V-Jump and not too far apart in sales so it's the only ...

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

The reason we started getting new content to begin with was due to the old content no longer being able to bring in the $$$ they wanted. Not only was the new animated content able to bring in more $$$, it continued to do so and bring in even more after its conclusion. From a business perspective, i...

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

So we supported the franchise so hard it put the anime in purgatory? Is it just me being too focused on all the negative aspects, or does anyone else feel like this more of a punishment than a good thing? I have no idea. It's all speculation but I was thinking about how it changed from being a guar...

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

If Dragon Quest is delaying the return of the TV series, this will definitely delay the next movie. Again, DB will eventually receive one or both, but that will take far longer than we'd like due to the franchise's current financial success. I remember when it was said "DB makes too much money not ...

A very above it all comment, and I believe every word by the way so I’m not taking the piss, but I remember how hard many people defended this years back. All the videos saying this is the true continuation of Dragon Ball and instant back lash of criticism. I also recall Salagir’s arrogant attitude...

And for those wondering, yes I've come back to DBM solely because of the current state of affairs.

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

Super itself exists to show what happened in the gap between Buu and EoZ. Which is why I feel that it will end when it finally reaches that point sometime in the next 3000 years. We always get predictions at the end of every arc that the next one will finally go past EoZ. I might be one of the few ...

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

That doesn't really give us an idea of long it'll last but Boruto is intended to go on for around 30 volumes and its sales aren't far behind the DBS manga's. 30 volumes is some good length. Here's to hoping Super gets a similarly decent run, despite this arc being the manga's lowest point thus far ...

You guys think everyone Moro and his henchmen killed will be resurrected next chapter? I assume they will but for some reason I think it might not happen after Vegeta freed the people absorbed by Moro including most of the Nameks. I imagine that would affect their mortal score if that's still a thin...

So we're definitely getting more than 16 volumes. How long will this series last?

The completed series I checked were shorter than D...

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

As far as why they wont go past Eoz there are reasons for it. I'm not saying that they wont or that they will but there are reasons. I forgot the actual literary term for it but it's the concept that "at the end of the day everything is the same". Status quo? I do think that's one of the reasons. S...

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

I tend to go with what Chrono says here. The real story as intended by the author has ended long ago. It was the original manga. What we are getting in the whole of Super, is basically 'intended by the franchise'. Purely commercially i don't see any fundamental reasons why the franchise would absol...

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

Toriyama WAS TOTALLY about ending DB at Frieza saga, but Toei pushed a lot about. The compromise is that Tori-sama JUST do broad stuff and Studio Bird instead do the whole work - in fact most of DBZ stuff is Studio Bird work. If the compromise stand still, Toriyama will agreed to continue. Is a kin...

Yeah. That's exactly japanese producers main issue. They are so focused on the goal of telling stories...

Re: Are we going to see a timeskip in Chapter 68???

At this point I think it's only a matter of time, as there'd be no reason to constantly tease Uub if they weren't going to jump past EOZ. However, I doubt it'll be this soon, as we probably still have an arc or 2 before that happens. We already know Uub is appearing at the end of the series. I thin...
