Re: I liked Super 17.

... No, Freeza's not the same. We have no idea if he needs anything. We see him drink wine, that's about it. We know he's lazy and uses a floating wheelchair, but I fail to see any evidence to suggest he doesn't require the same basic things everyone else does. Boo's special, he's Cell's logical fo...

Re: Nostalgia - A powerful force

I even dropped One Piece for good. I started to realize that most shows geared towards teens, pre-teens, etc. Sorry for off-topic, but It is really the shame you did. It brings up a lot of important themes. Right now. Of-course anime is pretty horrible mostly after time-skip, but you could at least...

I don't hate Tarble, but he was given so little focus, why I didn't mention him. We didn't even see him fighting.

Re: If you were to see a GT character made canon in DBS Who?

I highly doubt there's 1% of probability of it ever happening in the near future, in DBSuper or anywhere else, but I would more than welcome the concept of having Cell back at least for a few episodes. I would've liked that and there's almost perfect spot for that to happen - Age 786, 2 years after...

Re: Is "Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!" canon?

But Bardock didn't appear in the manga firstly. He appeared originally in Bardock: Father of Goku. Doesn't matter. What we saw in the manga is what happened in the manga, and was expanded in Minus. The TV Special only acted as an inspiration for Bardock's story in the manga, and the design was Tori...

Re: I liked Super 17.

Super 17 doesn't make sense, isn't Cell supposed to be the ultimate Artificial Human? Why not just make another Cell? Wouldn't it be worth it? Or make a time machine and grab another one? Force them to fuse? Super Cell >>>>>>> Super 17. I feel like Super 17 would beat the shit out of Whis if he did...

He didn't change anything from the Bardock we saw in the manga though.. But Bardock didn't appear in the manga firstly. He appeared originally in Bardock: Father of Goku. But yeah, it's certainly possible that we may suddenly see a new version of Tarble's story by Toriyama, though I find it extreme...

Re: Could Gohan really carry the series.

Re: What's your opinion on the new characters?

Kaioshin of Time is a nice change. For once we get a God being female. Kaioshins don't have sexes. She just appears female, thus we use a feminine pronoun. And we already had West Kaioshin. http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/dragonball/images/6/60/West_Kaioshin.jpg/revision/latest?cb=2010112222521...

Re: Could Gohan really carry the series.

There's lots of series where the protagonist isn't having fun doing what he/she's doing and it's still fun. Their sense of fun and the reader's sense of fun isn't mutual. any examples? unless its a gag manga making fun of a miserable protag I can't think of a series where the main doesn't want to b...

Re: Could Gohan really carry the series.

I think he could, as I really enjoyed his spotlight during the early Boo arc, particularly what the anime did with it. However, it would be a very different type of series were it to have continued following Gohan, for all the reasons you pointed out. Re: above: Goku doesn't train to become a savio...

Beerus and Whis are great. Especially Whis, with being so mystic and cold. He makes an impression of being some funny attendant or even servant of Beerus at first, but we learn that there is much more to him, and he actually has his reasons to hang out with Beerus, even if we don't know what they ar...

Re: Could Gohan really carry the series.

The guy doesn't have the gut to train and become a savior. He did it only once, and even then he was forced. He doesn't want to train and fight, this is simply it. He is no Goku and will never become like him. At this point even Vegeta fits being an savior much more than Gohan. So I don't think that...

Re: Is it wrong to not accept DBS/BoG/RoF etc as canon?

There is nothing wrong with that. It is also worth noting, that so far Battle of Gods and Revival of F (especially) seem to have much more involvement from Toriyama than Super, so if anything has considered to be canon, then it should be these two movies. Super is just another GT. I wouldn't call S...

Well, not exactly. Toriyama already referenced Bardock in his manga once, yet we know how all of this ended. It's not the same. Toriyama didn't just reference Bardock, he also briefly explained his story (the manga shows that he was the Saiyan that stood against Freeza & died along with his planet,...

Re: If you were to see a GT character made canon in DBS Who?

I actually like most of the concepts and characters in GT . But they're so specific to it I think it might feel jarring to see them lifted wholesale. I want to throw in my support for the mischief-causing "good-guy" Cell mentioned above though. That's one I've considered a few times. Like Vegeta, h...

Re: Dragon Ball Super TV Ratings Discussion Thread

Either last 3 episodes of Z are cannon or Super is cannon. You can't have both as they're contradicting. Last episodes of Z are officially non cannon at this point. Contradiction don't mean a shit.
