Re: Super Episode 128 (18 February 2018)

Now I'm actually hoping Goku loses against Jiren to make this arc at least a bit more interesting story wise. There's absolutely nothing interesting about Goku losing AGAIN in Super. We saw that a billion times already, I'm getting sick of it by now: Beerus, Golden Frieza, Frost, Hit, Zamasu etc. G...

Re: Super Episode 128 (18 February 2018)

What was the purpose of this episode? What was its usefulness in the plot? Goku awaken the UI? Well, he could do it on EP 129 himself. Half of the EP was Vegeta being beaten in base form. Jiren could have defeated him with a punch. The flashbacks were not as motivational as they should be. This who...

Re: Super Episode 128 (18 February 2018)

3/10 episode, too much time was wasted on something that should have been taking care of in 3 minutes or less. Repeated frames of Vegeta and Goku getting punched endlessly was unbearable, kind of like checking your watch every so often when a overly long movies keeps going and going. Through out the...

Re: Mastered Ultra Instinct [Spoiler Discussion Thread]

To be fair SS Goku is not a direct recolor, Goku's hair does significantly change shape (Gohan and Vegeta's SS forms are recolors of their base forms) which makes it distinct enough to be considered a brand new thing I mean, that was kind of my whole point -- recolors are fine as long as there are ...

Re: Mastered Ultra Instinct [Spoiler Discussion Thread]

While I do prefer black over white/silver in this case, the "recolor" complaints definitely ring hollow and seem somewhat disingenuous. People often forget that the original Super Saiyan form was exactly that -- Goku's hair was simply changed to a bright yellow color (the out-of-universe explanatio...

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

Edit: Oh, & not only that, but Uub! Uub's a black character who doesn't look like a racial stereotype. Toriyama's clearly not a racist man, even though Dragon Ball's not the most racially-diverse anime/manga series, but when he does, he can draw them as just regular people. Sorry I don't have many ...

You just gotta love the amount effort that toriyama puts into these des...

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

Goku Blanco! Lol, a meme becomes a reality for a different character altogether. A major cause for formation of meme was toriyama had said that he wanted to use white hair. All his new forms were memes waaaaaaay before he came back, especially in the early 2000's with things like Blue being "Ssj7" ...

Goku Blanco! Lol, a meme becomes a reality for a different character altogether. I think it's still a bit too early for Goku to master Ultra Instinct. But, eh, Goku is a martial arts genius, I guess. It's the same mistake they made with SsjG, instead of finding a way to keep it around longer they ju...

Personally, rather than sh*tting on everything like many folks around here, I go with the mentality that a fight's a fight.

Re: Super Episode 127 (11 February 2018)

It looks inconsistent because of how atrocious Toei is writing Super. This is my main problem with not only this episode, but DBS as a whole. If DB/Z was a 7-8 on average, DBS is a 4-5 in comparison. Its a significant drop in quality, but the problem is that I believe people like Zenkai make up a g...

Re: Super Episode 127 (11 February 2018)

The best part about Jiren's backstory is when 17 immediately basically shit on it the moment Belmod finished explaining. I feel like he represented the fans there. "So...you're essentially just a massive dickhead upset about your past? Wow, real impressed." Pretty much, 17 went DBZ:Fighters on him....

Re: Super Episode 127 (11 February 2018)

On the other hand, Jiren's backstory could've not have been more generic, contrived, and poorly executed. We wait ALL this time...and THAT'S what they give us? You couldn't get more cliched if you tried. Just terrible. And what's even worse is that some people are somehow IMPRESSED with that?! Forg...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

But honestly....... Why does Roshi "have to be" close to some fighter's levels to be able to fight them? Why does doing well in a fight "have to be" down to being stronger than your opponent? Why does the power level "have to be" the most important part of a fight between martial artists? Because b...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

That's why I don't subscribe to the notion that power levels need to exactly be within range of each other for fighters to exchange blows and have actual combat mechanics play a role in determining the flow of a fight. The mechanics in DBS is just like it is in db/z, if two fighters of near equal e...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

no matter how much i think about it. 17's power level dosent make any sense. in 10 years he fought nothing but weak poachers and had no struggle whatsoever. his training was probably not much. i mean i can maybe get it that he could go from the ssj1 level that he was to ssj3 bu not more then that. ...

Re: Super Episode 123 (14 January 2018)

People are getting way too up tight about Vegeta's transformation. Is it really a whole lot different from the difference between the difference between SSJ and SSJ 2. Vegeta's hair changed and it's a darker blue, his eyes turned an even darker shade of blue, and he has a new sparkley aura. How dif...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

There's no reason to put 18 and Ribrianne below base level fighters when they both showed things that put them well above them. Super Ribrianne was stronger than base Goku, and her Giant form was even stronger than that. 18 easily defeated that Ribrianne with an injured ankle. Android 18 was gettin...
