Why didn't Roshi train to prepare for the Saiyans?

After Roshi watched Radditz knock out Goku and Krillin in one blow, and then find out two stronger Saiyans were coming, why didn't Roshi join Krillin/Yamcha/Tenshinhan/Chioatzu/Yajirobe on Kami's lookout and train and prepare for the Saiyans?

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

If this happened in the anime it would be the biggest jump the shark moment in Dragonball history. Why do you think the anime writers had Roshi just take out weaker opponents? They knew him fighting anyone major was absurd. To be fair Frost beating him up and not killing him (even if he was holding ...

Re: Has the existence of Ultra Instinct removed any tension from any future antagonists?

The best decision they made is Goku not being able to use Ultra Instinct whenever he wants. I'm glad they're sticking with the Blue forms, even though they're already overpowered.

Ultra Instinct may show up at the climax of the Broly movie but I hope it doesn't, feels like an easy win card.

If Super came out in Japan in the early 2000's like around 2005...would the impact have been different?

So as we know the early 2000's is when Dragonball had a bit of a revival in terms of videogames and merch in both Japan and the dub was at the height of its popularity. What if Super came out around 2005 in Japan instead of 2015? Literally 10 years earlier? It still would have been 8 years after GT ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

The dub seems to have regressed to DBZ Buu saga levels in terms of dialogue and added jokes. Goku singing "Cha La La" had no reason to be there. I fully expect Goku to say, "Look, people popcorn!" and such. The Buu saga dub was better than the earlier seasons and more accurate but still had jokes ad...

Re: Fan Service Tipping Point in DBS

The fanservice tipping point was when Caulifa was powering up her big muscle form and her boobs got HUGE. Boob growth is definitely a fanservice tipping point.

They probably aren't even strong enough to defeat Freeza on Namek, assuming they fought one at a time and not together.

Re: Who are the most popular Villains really?

I have a hard time believing newer villains are that popular in comparison to the classics. It seems mostly due to recency bias. Yep, Zamasu/Goku Black have only been around for what...since 2016? No way are they as popular as characters who have had 20+ years of viewership through different genera...

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

The manga also treats U7 like crap. Outside of Goku/Vegeta, Freeza and 17, nobody has a reason to be there. Krillin and Tien literally do nothing. 18 and Piccolo have extremely brief fights before going down. Gohan and Roshi have also literally done nothing so far, and Gohan will probably easily los...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Buu falling asleep again would be pathetic, not even sad at this point. At this point Toriyama should just literally kill Buu off or have him fuse with Uub permanently like in GT if he has no plans to do anything with him.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

What doesn't make sense is since we know the entire main cast can sense power levels, why is nobody showing up when Broly comes to Earth? You'd think Gohan would at least fly their with Piccolo, I can understand Krillin, or even 18,17, etc. staying behind. Or Buu just doesn't care. Even trunks/goten...

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

I don't get why people complained about the pacing problems of the anime. Outside of a few scenes, it gave almost every character time to shine besides the few obvious fodder characters.

Now that we have Saiyan Saga Vegeta and Nappa, it feels really odd Radditz isn't in the game. He feels left out, I hope Radditz is added in a sequel or something.

I liked this chapter a lot. This is the kind of crazy middle point I thought the anime needed. Would've expected it to involve Jiren, but structurally having Goku and Jiren's battle ramp up in the background (or in this case come in fits; I'm expecting it to be continuous from here out though) to c...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

So is Freeza literally dumb enough to try and attack Earth again right after the TOP when he just saw Goku go Ultra Instinct and knows how powerful he is in general? And since we know Broly backfires on Freeza, are Goku/Vegeta just going to allow Freeza to escape to space again instead of finishing ...

With 4 months of training he'll be Blue level for sure. Worked for Freeza.

Freeza becoming good would be the one thing to make me quit watching modern Dragonball. Like I can't even think of a bigger jump the shark moment besides that.

Re: What’s everyone’s opinion on how the manga has so far handled the Universe Survival arc compared to the anime?

LOL, 90% of the fighters are useless in the manga. Half our main cast from U7 does absolutely nothing, the anime at least managed to give all the main characters some moments of glory (besides maybe Tien), and all those other great teamwork episodes or character development scenes are gone. Plus all...
