Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

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

Not this again... Base Goku in RoF was NOT at SSG level. There is literally nothing on the film implying that. Yes, he was, in the last film Goku's base and SS forms were SSG levek since absorbing that god power into his being, RoF continues on from this with all official supplement and material fo...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Being a direct continuation doesn't mean much, as Halloween 2 is a direct sequel to Halloween, but supposedly the new movie coming out will only act as if the first 1 ever happened. In a similar fashion you could say the RoF movie works the same way with the manga, as if you just watch RoF after re...

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

So Golden Frieza has gotten nurfed and Kale's carrying a big can of woop-ass... One minut your down, the next your right back up again. Can you explain to me how Golden Frieza was nerfed? Final form Frieza is more or less equal with Base Goku. Golden Frieza is more or less equal with Blue Goku. If ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Those outside materials can be retconned. I said if you go off the RoF movie alone, and nothing else, it can fit into the manga continuity quite nicely. Not really since the RoF movie directly continues from the BoGs film where Goku absorbed SSJG into his being and made it his own where in the DBS ...

Re: Super Episode 131 (25 March 2018)

Thank god I'm not the only one trying to reconcile what Zeno is suppose to be with all the characterization we’ve been given of him up to the point. This does not seem like how this was originally supposed to end given our setup of Zeno even back in the Champa arc and feels incredibly lazy and half...

Re: Super Episode 131 (25 March 2018)

By far the greatest annoyance is how they actually wrote 18 genuienly asking 17 if he is alright with choosing to save the universes instead of having his cruise ship . What's with her characterization in this arc, it's been all over the place and mostly not good. To be fair, 18 was always a shallo...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

You said a lot of things but Goku using his friends as motivation WAS reactionary. It was reactionary to get him back to Omen and it was reactionary to get him a second wind here. He still wanted to fight Jiren at his best, he never said he didn't. I said a lot of truthful things you glossed over, ...

Fans Pre-130: "Super hasn't given Goku any character development at all. He's still the same dickhead he's always been, it's sooooo annoying!" Fans post-130: "WTF Toei,show some consistency for fuck's sake. Keep Goku the same he's always been!" No, no, no...That is not what anyone is suggesting, th...

You're living in the 2010s, the decade built on the destruction of artistic integrity and people soaking it up because its "fun" in the most vague, often superficial way possible. All that's left is the "Lord of Rings is getting a sequel trilogy!" announcement and we've officially hit rock bottom. ...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

Why is no one treating Goku's obvious change of motivation, which is in stark contrast to 122, as a progression or development of his mentality during this arc? Since its pretty obvious that's what they were going for. Terrible writing, its the same reason something established in a previous episod...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

The worst part of the episode, however, was the over-the-top melodrama. Characters getting stronger by reminiscing over their past or their loved ones. What is this, Fairy Tail? Dragon Ball had done of good job of avoiding this kind of kitsch shit. It's just so incredibly awful, melodrama like this...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

It's also Toriyama's interpretation that Goku became the legendary SSJ after losing his best friend and obtained God Ki only through the help of his friend and family literally holding his hand. SSJ had nothing to do with his friends putting their trust, support, and belief into Goku to utilize nak...

Not really, that's Toei's interpretation which clashes wifh Toriyama's interpretation. I ain't saying Goku is heartless, but Toriyama makes it very clear through out all of Dragon Ball its not his love for his friends or family that pushes him past his limits, Vegeta's speech while Goku is fighting...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

I don’t understand why some are letting Super’s narrative, character development, plot, etc weigh it down so much in their opinion. For a lot of shows I watch I do value these aspects, just not for Dragon Ball. Why? Because this show is meant to be eye candy first. This isn’t Game of Thrones (admit...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

On the other hand, I’m not a big fan of them going through the whole “power of friendship” trope. That’s way too cliche for a shonen series. It's not too cliche for a shounen series when 99% of shounen is all about "teaching" that lesson. That's like complaining that a horror film has a scene that ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

So the humans are weaker than the ssj kids, let alone their fused ssj3 form. Well, no duh. This is Toei, they put in whatever will look coolest at the moment with no regard for anything else. If you told them "copy vegeta destroyed ssj3 gotenks, and copy vegeta is equal to base vegeta, who is equal...

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

They can't make up another end game without some BS Goku> God of All. Which would be the dumbest shit ever, but definitely possible with Akira and Toei. Zeno is the one character that should never be close to being surpassed, but with DB writing it's sadly on the cards. The series has jumped the sh...

Re: Super Episode 129 (4 March 2018)

I feel conflicted with this episode, I already knew for a fact complete UI wouldn't appear until the very end of the episode, but as for the episode itself it had a lot of flash sure enough, but very little substance, I guess it was decent enough to be an adequate episode. Nothing really bad or nega...
