Re: The lack of new techs in DBS

Dragon Ball was always like this, though. I too wished Goku and company could learn some new techniques instead of new transformations. Goku using Hakai and Vegeta coming up with Gamma Burst Flash were cool moments in the manga, while the anime had Goku using some cool tricks and moves in the Tourna...

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

It’s no big news that Toyotaro is a big fanboy of Bardock as he also made a fanmanga (Dragon Ball Zero iirc) which depicted Bardock’s and Raditz’ lives before Planet Vegeta’s destruction. In one of his monthly drawings Toyotaro also pictured a what-if scenario which included the Bardock’s TV special...

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

Glad I'm not the only one who thought about that. Though my view is slightly different, instead of Bardock's spirit appearing just like Goku's spirit appears in Movie 10, it would be merely his sillhouette appearing on top of Goku's image. That's what should have happened. Huge missed opportunity. ...

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

This art of Bardock and Goku doing a father-son Kamehameha has been creating a lot of fuss. Before the same happens here, let me address a few things. First of all, I actually find the drawing to be really pleasing to look at. I am happy to see that Toyotaro keeps on improving. Second, this is just ...

Re: How would you feel about Goku getting another Brother?

Some characters can handle, or even benefit from, the "El Hermano" concept, such as Frieza with Cooler or Jiren with the classic El Hermano, because we don't know all that much about them and an imposing big brother can provide them with backstory and depth. Goku is not one of these characters sinc...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Doesn't the existence of SSB Vegito throw a big wrench in the more conservative estimations for the manga's scaling? I mean, he's a FUSION whose base form was demonstrably close to that god-level, AND THEN he can turn SSB on top of that. And yet it's still in contention whether or not he's on/below...

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

The Grand Priest implied Merus has only been deployed to U7 recently. It’s possible it happened when Freeza was already killed, so that’s why he never did something about him. He also had to do everything using mortal tools and not his Angel powers so of course he wouldn’t be able to defeat an army...

Re: SSJ God was supposed to be “a being that surpasses everything”

Well to be honest martial arts in real life heavily favor the heaviest competitor. It’s just much easier to generate power if you weigh more. This doesn’t mean that someone who is slim can’t possibly win a fight against someone bigger because that’s just plain wrong, as of course technique plays a b...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Gogeta was not forced to go Blue, he went Blue to make sure Broly couldn't keep up and to get the kill quick. If you notice Broly punches him in full power and it doesn't hurt SS Gogeta. I went to rewatch the scene and Full Power Broly actually lands a gut punch on Gogeta which hurts him, and then ...

If Base Gogeta = 2% of Beerus, then SS3 G...

It’s so obvious that Merus will intervene, I don’t know why people won’t get it. It's not that people don't get it, they don't want it to happen, and understandably so. The idea of making the established cast look like incompetent idiots in order to make the new guy shine is by far one of the worst...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Scaling Beerus Anime Scaling Beerus in the anime is quite hard and head-scratching due to Kaioken. I think by Broly’s movie (I won’t consider Moro as it would be different in the anime) the scale would be like this: • SSG: 2% of Beerus • SSB: 4% of Beerus • SSB KKx10: 40% of Beerus • SSB KKx20: 80%...

Re: SSJ God was supposed to be “a being that surpasses everything”

The trope of "He is strong but actually looks really weak" is a played out trope that isn't fun anymore. Just because it's a Toriyama idea doesn't automatically make it good. Actually, I think he currently is a detriment to the franchise, as DB Super has shown. He hasn't the foggiest idea of what t...

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

I hope the mastered Ultra Instinct won’t appear as it’s too early and would be too Heroes-ish if it once again shows up only for Goku to not be able to use it again the next time. No thanks. Not that I think it will even appear as it’s clear it’s being saved for Toriyama’s stories. Goku bringing Zen...

Re: Anyone got into Dragon Ball BEFORE Saiyans start to become a thing?

My Japanese teacher was a fan of the manga but he left Japan in the late '80s and never seemed to of caught up, so I think he is still unaware of the Saiyans. I doubt he is due to how popular the serie has gotten. He may have dropped it for good in the 80s, but he must have seen some ads about DB w...

Re: What are the chances of Freeza becoming a genuinely good guy?

Only Piccolo and Vegeta got a redemption. Maybe Buu too. The other are just ordinary Dragon Ball guys, which aren’t exactly bad guys but not either very good people. The androids were never evil in the present timeline so they don’t count. This doesn’t mean Freeza must be redeemed too. I think a goo...

It would be interesting if Moro decided to split off Piccolo, but I doubt that will ever happen. I think ultimately Vegeta will be able to split Moro with the help of Goku. Maybe Buu will join the battle too? I don’t think Beerus will arrive on Earth, but maybe by this chapter already things will ge...
