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

It is pretty clear at this point. The promotional material for the movie refers to Broly as the strongest enemy they have ever faced, and "stronger than a God of Destruction?" They are just following the common practice of introducing a new villain stronger than anything they have fought prior to t...

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

Honestly, the bottom since the clothes are torn off and Goku specifically has bandages and Vegeta missing a giant chuck of his armor, something not seen in Dragon Ball before, while the above just looks like Vegeta got a gash on his forehead. A better visual example would be this: the top one also ...

Re: General "Canon/Filler" Debate/Discussion

@ Grimlock: You suggest that I said that "canon" and "continuity" mean the same semantically. Then you misunderstood me, I fear, because I did not say that. I only looked up both definitions and then applied them to Dragon Ball. As a conclusion, I rather think it comes down to the same content at t...

Re: Why are they retconning the original Bardock special? Now it's no longer canon?

Toriyama has writing credits on everything from GT to the movies. No, he hasn't. Only the latest movie have him with story/writing credits. No, that's a bold face lie which gets ignorantly regurgitated around the internet without people bothering to research a shred of information for themselves. T...

Re: Why are they retconning the original Bardock special? Now it's no longer canon?

Yeah it would different if IT WAS ACTUALLY TORIYAMA’S STORY. It is Toriyama's story. No need to yell. From the beginning Super has been nothing but Toriyama retelling stories someone else had already made or made creative decisions on. Super Saiyan Gods and God’s of Destruction WERE NOT Toriyamas s...

Never understood this “crusade” it goes back to the RedLetterMedia Boogeyman BS. The same blatant disrespect to the creators and runners behind the show it’s legitimately irritates me to watch it. It especially boils my blood to see so much disrespect towards Toei Animation and Toriyama simply for ...

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

I think what IS valid in terms of people's complaints is the idea of Toriyama and the other series creators flagrantly disregarding the idea of established stone-set continuity. Now, I don't personally believe that their intent is to intentionally disrespect the established continuity; far from it,...

Re: Why are they retconning the original Bardock special? Now it's no longer canon?

It's simple: if it sells, then it sells. TOEI isn't intrested if you trash it or not. They look at the numbers. People have to watch and sell the merchandise. Do you think if some guys are moaning on an internet board is a base of their concern? Then i'm afraid you are spending your time. Trashing ...

Re: Why are they retconning the original Bardock special? Now it's no longer canon?

Of course, like anything in a story, Goku gets as far as he does because the story needs him to, like any story ever in the history of mankind and just like any other story, its the purpose of the storyteller to make you forget this and get invested in characters & plots. To make things feel like t...

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

Now I have two things to worry about in this movie for the sake of my sanity; Bardock's rebellion scene being shown, and SSBE making an appearance. I wonder what will happen to Frieza? To be honest he still deserves to die... He shouldn't be alive again in the first place.... And why the hell not? ...

Re: Can I just ignore Super's existence?

As it's displayed in the title, can I just ignore that Super has ever happened? I personally don't think it does any honour to a DB continuity, nor do I think that it's how the events should have been displayed in case that there was a continuity... I just can't watch/read Super and figure it as a ...

I wouldn't be surprised if Bardock being removed from facing off Freeza leads into him and Gine secretly running away so they can meet Goku and his family later. Yes, I have that little respect for this series writing. You know what...you may be right. If we don't see him die then they can easily i...

The fandom brought this all on themselves with the Toriyama = good/canon. It time for fans to live with the bed they made with canon/original author debates and blind Fanaticism. Personally I dislike minus, but I’m well past the point of what contradicts what as the author clearly does give a rats b...

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

That sounds eerily similar to Dragon Ball Super. Not only it is similar to Dragon Ball Super, that series doesn't even deal with other concepts, making it worse. I will gladly take the Future Trunks arc and Universal Survival arc over whatever the fuck Super Dragon Ball Heroes is meant to be/trying...

making Super look less like the half-assed piece of literary crap that it is. You must be talking about GT, surely. Which is funny, considering you used it as an example of how a story unfolds ignoring the fact that that wasn't how the manga ended. While "next generation" was implied, Goku wanted t...

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

I’m still shocked that people still hunt for character development and growth in Dragon Ball, or some well written character. Dragon Ball was not very well written to begin with and it still isn’t. Any or all development ended at the Boo Saga. It’s just rehases, different forms, and tournaments now...

Re: Why do people feel Beerus/Whis remove any tension from threats against Earth?

There's no tension because we know everyone is alive at the epilogue. There can actually be tension whenever Beerus and Whis are present now that we're actually reaching levels of power that are a threat to them because they can die. But there won't be, especially when Whis can turn back time, heal...
