Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

SSJG is a worse offense than SSJGSSJ and Golden Freeza since it was the first new transformation in a decade after SSJ3 and 4, was hyped up by trailers, and has "God" in its title. I get people like that it's cute (I do too), but that went against expectations; the form was a spit in the face to fa...

Re: Would you like to see a redone version of Dragon Ball GT

As far as the brand name goes, GT is barely acknowledged anymore. I personally don't see it happening at all, and I'm not so sure I'd want it to happen either.

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

Some Herms' translated Volume F tidbits from over on Twitter: Toriyama thought he couldn't make Freeza's design any simpler, so he changed the color instead. Thus Golden Freeza was born! SSGSS's blue hair was in order to emphasize that Goku is tranquil in this form, and keeps a level head in battle...

Personally, I don't have a problem with CGI sequences as long as they provide some pretty good fluidity and don't overstay their welcome. I liked them in BoG.

Re: Super Saiyan God absorption

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Goku and Vegeta are the only ones capable of absorbing the form. Beerus did make a pretty huge deal out of Goku's raw talent when he did it.

Re: So what exactly is this SSGSS?

SSJ inused with Godly Ki certainly does suggest it could go beyond SSJGod. It could go beyond it, but it doesn't suggest that it actually does. There's no way of comparing those two forms simply by virtue of them sharing the same ki source. The former choice is too vague in regards to strength. As ...

Re: What if the SSG was permanent...?

I'm more inclined to call the form Saiyan God, just because it doesn't need the Saiyans to be Super ones. The source of it is totally different than of Super Saiyan forms. To be clear, there's nothing wrong with calling it "Saiyan God" if you wish to do so. I'm only maintaining that it's incorrect ...

Re: What if the SSG was permanent...?

Didn't Akira Toriyama say that SSJ2 and SSJ3 are just powered up variations of SSJ? So why discredit the graded forms and exclude them from the SSJ definition because they are also "variations" on the SSJ form? SSJ3 is only slightly different than the other SSJ forms in that it gives them pupils an...

Re: What if the SSG was permanent...?

That was just an example to make a point. Like I said, the only similarities the forms have is that it amplifies power. But you're not making a point. Kaioken isn't unique to the Saiyan race and just manifests an aura around Goku. SSG actually modifies Goku's body, hair and eyes. It has its own fab...

Re: What if the SSG was permanent...?

The only similarities it has to the other transformations is that it amplifies his power. Kaioken did that too and nobody is putting it in the same category as "Super Saiyan". Kaioken isn't unique to Saiyans, so of course it isn't in the same category. This doesn't help your argument. Unlike Kaioke...

Re: So what exactly is this SSGSS?

One suggests that the SSJ form is infused with the SSJGod form. The other suggests that the SSJ form is infused with the Godly Ki. I'm pretty sure that is different. One would offer only the power that comes with being in SSJGod. The other would offer power beyond SSJGod as only the proportion of G...

Re: What if the SSG was permanent...?

The form is still fundamentally different from the other SSJ forms. It's the only one to convert Ki into another type. That sets it out from the other SSJ forms. So you can't really compare them. We can't really say that the definition of SSJ is a lot more fluid than what is believed. Because up un...

Re: What if the SSG was permanent...?

Because the form seems to have amplified Goku's power by converting his regular Ki into a better, more potent, version. Godly Ki. We know that the form imbues Godly ki, we don't know if that new fuel is the sole reason for such a dramatic power increase. We're just told that the user's power is boo...

Re: What if the SSG was permanent...?

How is it misleading? It's a temporary transformation that drastically amplifies the user's current power like every other Super Saiyan form and consumes energy, the only difference is that it boosts the user to heights that are otherwise impossible to reach naturally (for Goku, at least, until he a...

Re: What if the SSG was permanent...?

Simple Question: What if the Red Super Saiyan God was permanent for Goku? Could he power on and off the form? My opinion is that he couldn't. The form in not a Super Saiyan transformation which unleashes the inner power. The Saiyan God in an evolution of a normal being into a higher one as his life...

Re: In GT canon, are there 2 possible Super Saiyan 4 forms?

I've always reasoned that the Golden Oozaru form was somewhat like a natural progression of Super Saiyan 3 considering that SS3 itself does kind of look like it's supposed to head in that direction from a design perspective. Given the fact that Super Saiyan 4 is basically the humanoid form of that, ...

I guess you could still think that Goku was a Super Saiyan infused with godly power when he fought Beerus. While now he is effectively infused with Super Saiyan God's power in its fullest. The name doesn't bother me at all, I'm getting used to it. Well, yeah. That would be the logical conclusion to...
