Re: How long can ‘Super’ realistically stretch out the 10 year time gap?

Not a chance this is the last Arc. With licensing and merchandising selling like hot cakes, and 3 whole years left on the timeline before the epilogue, that's more than enough for Toriyama/Toei to go on as long as they want to, as they see fit. They need not mention any passage of time: there is on...

@lord_turbo: Don't think I'm even gonna give a read to yet another bloated chunk of text and full of pretentious factoids and filmsy explanations I'm supposed to automatically ingrain in order to have a bizarre acknowledgement of the sort; for once, I'll take a leap of faith and just assume you are...

Re: Super Episode 111 (15 October 2017)

I think most, if not the majority of us saw this coming, but still sad to see Hit go even though he tries his hardest and put on a decent show. Also, I gotta say Freeza has improved dramatically as a character, he's not acting remotely the same as before, able to think ahead, scheming, analyzing the...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Which clearly begs the question: if you think it's baseless what's your aim here in keeping this conversation up? Wouldn't a normal person say "oh, I think it's baseless, but to each their own"? I mean, at least that's what I would do. At least that's what I factually did many posts ago by now. I'm...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Yet again, I don't see where I said I have actual problems with it, it's just something I'm not willing to buy because I don't really see Toyotaro making this kind of scenario in his own mind. It's more like you are trying to force me to accept it as the one hypothesis which makes sense. If you thi...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

It happens to be exactly my same point in that the figure of speech used is inconclusive. If we want to go even more in detail, Vegeta's general condition of being "unable to use even his 10% in the fight (if he wanted to?)" doesn't even clarify if he actually was outputting it all at once or not; ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

The manga is more than slightly confusing at times, but it looks like you might be lead to read a little too much into the figures of speech. Whis saying Vegeta lost "over 90% of his power" is just there to remind us Vegeta was almost completely depleted of energy; besides, Vegeta losing "99,9%" of...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I haven't see that part in Hajime no Ippo, so I can't comment on that, does he do it without the need of sight? Because to me it seems like Goku's body would still avoid damage even without the use of his vision, especially when you take into consideration what Whis was saying about always avoiding...

Re: Super Episode 109-110 (8 October 2017)

These episodes were interesting, specifically the Belmond, Jiren, and Goku fighting and such. Everything else was classic bad DBZ with useless padding (Goku slowly going through all forms minus SSJ3), multiple drawn out reaction shots, pointless small child level observation exposition from the char...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I simply loathe the "hey, I'm gonna correct you" back 'n forth that are factually "hey, let's confront our ideas on the subject even if we disagree" in disguise. Fair enough. I'd say it depends. Black may also feel cornered because he's fighting someone stronger than him, and his Super Saiyan - bei...

Re: Why have 17 and 18 simply vanished?

I just realized we have not seen 17 or 18 in quite a while. What happened to them? For all the hype 17 got especially for being brought back in the tournament, he only really had maybe an episode and a half of spotlight so far. 18 got some nice wins in, but I still want to see her do more.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Piccolo did say that after Ultimate Gohan had regained his powers that he didn't think that was all he was capable of and that's why they continued training. So he would be a stronger Ultimate Gohan than in the Buu Saga and like I said Vegeta did say that Gohan had the greatest potential of them al...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Technically, we don't know what's supposed to be Black's SS2 hairstyle compared to his SS1 hairstyle and if it's supposed to be the exact same of Goku's. Might also be an oversight, since it's clear Toyotaro always drew Super Saiyans without sparks. That is because, for the third or fourth time, th...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

1. Vegeta has visible sparks against Black. So does Black (I'm leaving aside Black because we have no precedents for him using any form, but if I had to go off what I know, I'd say he was a SS2). And no, since every time Super Saiyan Vegeta was drawn before by Toyotaro he never had the sparks I won...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I don't see how Vegeta or anything about Black from the manga is even remotely related to Copy-Vegeta. Vegeta's SS2 - because he is a "SS2" - who previously was stated to be above Goku's SS3 defeats Black (who's either SS or SS2). There's nothing staying or hinting Vegeta is a SSJ2 and not a SSJ ji...
