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

Goku is officially retarded haha, imagine saving the life of a universal threat. I hope Beerus destroys him after this. Fuck the Earth and all its people, they have endangered the cosmos way too many times. If I were Beerus, I would straight up destroy Moro and the rest of that accursed planet, the...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

This guy is clearly not capable of carrying the franchise after Toriyama. I would say no one would be able is carry the franchise after Toriyama. The old movies and GT had the advantage of being writing by staff who worked on the original series but not much would come close to peak Toriyama in my ...

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

Time for the usual complaints about the drafts which tend to be addressed by the full chapter, I guess. Though I have to say that I'm having a bit of an "I told you so" moment with a certain plot point in these drafts. (I don't remember if I said it here, though.) I'll avoid mentioning it directly ...

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

Most of what he ignored happened because the Broly movie was written at the same time as the TOP, which is where a lot of the newer forms came from outside of Blue Kaioken. Manga or anime exclusive forms ignored in Broly were Completed Blue, Kaioken, and Evolution and only the last was introduced i...

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

Yes, early Super looks like trash. The producers wanted to quickly capitalize on the movies' overwhelming success and didn't take much time to make Super. However, Super greatly improved by the time of the U6 arc. The original arcs of Super don't look nearly as bad as the retellings... in fact, the...

Re: What is the likelihood of them introducing a Super Saiyan version of Ultra Instinct in the future?

Much like how UI is basically Goku’s “Base form”, there is a good possibility that Toei may surprise us again by introducing us to a “Super” Ultra Instinct state! Would that really be a surprise to many fans? If there was going to be another form after MUI, my first thought was a SSJ White or a SSJ...

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

I doubt most anime look as good as this: It depends what you consider most because I'm not sure if most of Super's quality would be considered above average. I haven't watched a lot of anime but I can't remember any I've seen that looked as bad as Super at its worst. I'm there they exist but they'r...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Looking back on it now, the Boo arc really was the perfect end to DBZ. While stuff like Beerus/Whis and multiple universes now feels kinda natural, it really does make sense looking back for Boo to officially end Dragonball's canon run. Toriyama had a lot of fun with that saga (most of the Boo arc ...

Except Toriyama himself don’t want people to follow his outline to the point he told Toyo to be more creative. Only ‘hardcore’ fans gives a damn about what is exactly is an outline that no one here has seen, yet is treated like the Bible. Even the fan recuts are making assumptions about the outline...

Re: Should DBS Revisit The Concept Of Vengeance Against The Saiyans?

I think the concept of revenge doesn't work as well the more times the cast has been revived. That might be why DBS: Broly was pretty light-hearted since it's hard to take it seriously when Freeza, someone who has been killed twice and resurrected, is trying to have revenge against two guys who have...

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

again this arc didn't touched continuity - well, Goku get a boost. They can explain it differently. So, again, there's no hint or reason they will animate this arc ever. The Moro arc seems to be mostly self contained so it wouldn't affect any future developments from Toriyama. Vegeta learned new te...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Then to be completely clear and direct, if I may - are you saying that you personally have no position on whether Beerus is actually stronger than Broly? That's correct. Honestly that would've saved a lot of time and several pages of back and forth if you clarified that from the beginning :P.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Toriyama already did with the oracle fish prophecy. Goku is stronger than Jiren but has not became a formidable rival for Beerus still. Hence why powerful enemies like Broly are only guessed in comparison to Beerus because he is the benchmark. Since that remains your only argument, I'm going to ass...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Because Toriyama already established that Beerus was the boss over these opponents from the gate. With the Oracle fish's prophecy. For example, there is no way a TOP Jiren, who couldn't beat UI Goku then can handle UI Goku against Moro. The prophecy hasn't been fulfilled yet since Goku has yet to b...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

So it’s still a low-key Beerus-to-SSB Fusion comparison, to me at least. Goku hasn’t fought Beerus at full power himself, but he has a general idea from watching him fight, and he thinks he’s surpassed that level of power; so based on his battle with Broly, he’s guessing he’s around the same level....

Re: The treatment of Vegeta in modern dragonball, good or bad?

I think the only reason they need to be "taught" teamwork is that Goku and Vegeta have been fighting alone for 50 years, aside from the occasional team up, both of them have it ingrained in them to not only take charge but to expect to be fighting alone, which influences why they leave each other t...

It's hard to tell if it's reputation changed with the overall audience since there's always the silent majority for any series don't offer their opinions online.

Re: The treatment of Vegeta in modern dragonball, good or bad?

I like the family man Vegeta in DBS and GT. There were a few moments where I thought "hmm this doesn't sound like what a post-Buu saga Vegeta would say" but I recall those being anime or manga only scenes so I assume they weren't written by Toriyama. I can't remember the exact scenes so it wasn't to...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

You are having difficulty discerning fact from fiction. Toriyama himself said he "always" has the "strongest" enemy in the present. This is a fact of the story. It can't be argued. It's a definite claim. This is not my interpretation of the narrative. It's Toriyama's. Now you claiming that this isn...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

"Maybe" with Vegetto was already debunked when Beerus moved up the fusion power scaling ladder with Broly. So "probably" doesn't mean auto true either. The original manga didn't make guess words like "probably" true to characters who were reserved to be "strongest" much later in the story. So, agai...
