Re: What’s everyone’s opinion on how the manga has so far handled the Universe Survival arc compared to the anime?

I'm satisfied with it, because the expectations for this arc shouldn't be so high for people. It has no story whatsoever and the plot has been the most straightforward (I have ever seen) in dragonball. It was just an extremely long, drawn out Tournament, started for the sake of it, and its bloated w...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

I don't really want that Studio-Trigger, sketchy look for the animation in a lot of the scenes that look like they came out of the teaser. Why exactly would you be against that? I see it only working in close up scenes to make the anatomy looser-looking, like when Broly in the teaser was powering u...

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

I prefer the theory that Paragus might be the one using Freeza's army independently somehow. I don't get why Freeza would work with Broly and Paragus after wanting to get rid of the Saiyans to begin with. Maybe Freeza doesn't know they're Saiyans when they meet them. The worst thing we could have is...

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

I still don't get what a gentle spirit really has to do with anything. I would have preferred something more general like them getting S-cells through fighting, or hell merge it with the Zenkai concept. It just makes Vegeta's desperation on Namek look even more pitiful if he was just wasting his tim...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

Shintani's art style looks ok, but some of the faces look kind of off at times for me, like the entire clip in the trailer of Goku talking with Whis. I definitely love the sheets and color pallets, but I'm not really liking how off model some scenes look in comparison to them. The characters that s...

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

The whole Vegeta thing is whats known as a plot-hole. They’re everywhere in Dragon Ball. Then how can Broly become a Super Saiyan? He's even worse than Vegeta. The S-Cell thing is in fact a retcon-induced plot-hole. How would Cell even have SS power, if he is not peaceful either? It was just unnece...

Re: Disregarding quality, are you happy Super existed

No. At least not the anime and I just don't find it to be sincere or authentic at all from Toei. Ideas aren't anything without good execution because bad execution will always represent how those ideas are used and cemented. People in this fandom seem to say a lot there are good ideas, but then clai...

Re: Super has done a lot of things better than DBZ

Yep. Super focusing too much on just the thought of friends/speeches as a source to get stronger was not DB like. Now I thought the comrade theme fit more in line with DB when Goku, Freeza and 17 fought together to win, it's more realistic, more akin to DBZ. It is. Its the reason why 17 & 18 ended ...

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

Garbage chapter, for me. I hate fast eliminations, and the mange is even worse than the anime on that front. It definitely screams 'plot convenience', although the 'You think she's tough? Well, wait till you see Broly!' theory holds a lot of wait as well. But when you trash your arc in order to hyp...

Re: Dub lines that you find interesting.

I guess I just more meant that they were pretty accurate in translating the lines, including the ones that made Goku seem less heroic. So this one specifically seemed weird to slip through. Sounds like a nitpick to me, the lines are almost identical. When his friends die, he has always put avenging...

Vegitto does not get radically different techniques from fusion. Potara fuse your abilities. Not give you new ones. I felt compelled to reply to this point in particular. What about the energy sword that isn't like anything Goku or Vegeta use? Or the finger beams? I don't think a single one of his ...

Its because Akira Toriyama hadnt hammered out that Goku is Selfish. The anime had plenty of heroic moments and Funimation went with that interpretation.

In the anime it was clear Jiren had the same UI animations Goku did, but they never stated that it was. But they DID stated it. He's Just Strong. Pure, unadulterated STRENGTH he did gain by relying only on himself. It's how he works thematically in the anime: unlike Goku who relies on companions, t...

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

Love how Toyotaro drew Golden Freeza. Makes me wish he drew the Freeza arc (I know I've said this a dozen times in this thread; though I guess by omitting it, he's avoided the power scaling debacle that is 'Saiyan Beyond God'). He does seem like he's weaker in the manga than he was in the anime, wh...

Ok so I am genuinely interested what the character development/characterizations that you liked in GT. We discussed last time Mr. Satan's development which was reasonable enough, and you discussed Vegeta's "development" in GT and I think we kind of agreed to disagree there. You brought up Satan's d...

Re: So I rewatched Dragon Ball GT

It's mediocre, it was at its best from around episode 25-40, at that point it was probably a 6/10. At its lowest probably a 4/10 so overall perhaps 5/10. Any comparison to Dragon Ball Super to me is absolutely laughable. If this is another of the "GT was worse than I thought" threads, I cant agree ...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

Overall, I really do like the idea of them wanting to update things to look closure to Toriyama's Jaco Manga artstyle. I just like the appeal of the more realistic, and smaller body proportions and smoother, curvier lines on the characters over the angularity we've had for so long. What I don't want...

Re: Should Piccolo have trained with Whis?

If they really wanted to develop Picolo, they should have built him up to give Whis incitement to take interest in him. Piccolo could have had a lot to learn from the Nameks or find the creator of the Super Dragonballs to add onto his lore and make him a mythical figure to parallel the Saiyans. Him ...

Re: What’s everyone’s opinion on how the manga has so far handled the Universe Survival arc compared to the anime?

After seeing the anime, I can accept sacrifices made in the manga. So far the manga is more of how I would have skimmed the anime for my interests as most of the characters I couldn't care less about are thrown out accordingly, though thats my bias. I really only care to see Goku, U7, Jiren, Toppo a...
