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

Are people really starting to shit on Toriyama and his manga for the sake of THIS garbage fire of a manga maybe looking a bit better? What the fuck? Toriyama is world famous primarily for a very specific portion of his work, and not even his manga. Specifically the Dragonball “Z” anime which as the...

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

Not sure where all this doom & gloom is coming from. Ignoring the trailer everything we've been told about the movie doesn't sound like it's gonna be another RF. Nothing in RF's promotional cycle was interesting or promised anything interesting but here we're told of Goku/Vegeta/Broly having differ...

Guys forget about it , the best scenario with toriyama being involved is the one we’got right now Akira Toriyama wrote: Drawing Dragon Ball again reminded me of two things--how much I love it, and how much I never want to do it again. Exactly, his time is long past. If he wanted to he’d do it himse...

You know aside from them fighting Broly I have no idea what the actual story of this movie is meant to be. The re-introduction/canonization of Broly so he'll survive a clash with the top dogs and will from now on be milked for merchandise by showing up in future stories. I take this to mean the act...

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

Did Toriyama ever draw planet Vegeta in the manga? This may be his version He drew it in Minus. And the planet has very organic/primitive rock structures (same as in Episode of Bardock), as opposed to the hi-tech depiction from the Bardock TV special they apparently are going to follow. I really re...

Re: Is Toei’s Kale supposed to have a crush on Caulifla?

I think the ambiguity is a bit annoying and confusing for casual viewers not used to the modern subtext and undertones of today’s anime trends. At the very least it’s supposed to be ambiguous and are most obvious attraction by a character attempting to hid her feelings. This is one of my most hated ...

Re: Old Broly vs Super Vegetto

Him saying Freeza having lots of potential which he only realized later on does not make Freeza from the Namek arc the strongest in the original run itself when he's clearly overshadowed by lots, and lots of people afterward. Toriyama expecting you to believe Freeza who couldn't beat initial SS Gok...

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

His renewed relevance is precisely why him not helping out in the battle against the Saiyans has retroactively become a problem. At this point, are we just supposed to assume that he was simply too lazy to prepare for the Saiyans? Raditz and all the later antagonists could have killed Roshi with on...

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

Because he'd decided he was at his peak and that the next generation would carry on the mantle back in the Piccolo arc, and the modern material bringing him back into the action and handing him substantial power-ups isn't remotely in sync with his presentation in the original run. Exactly, “New” Dr...

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

The fact that someone of Roshi's level, regardless that he is an experienced martial artist, can even for a second hang with someone like Jiren is absurd. Keep in mind, that this Jiren is on a level that transends time. So the premise that because Roshi is calm of mind that he is able to comprehend...

"...Vegeta is desperately trying to catch up" Ouch I didn't like that bit either, for how long they will force this one side rivalry between Goku and Vegeta?

Sounds like more evidence that Toriyamas newer works don’t hold a candle to his older work.

Re: Super Saiyan 4 Transformation Requirements

From what I understand the glands for the oozaru form are in the tail, thus prompting the reaction. Given that we could assume the concentration of blutz wave replaces whatever the tail does and induces the form on its own. In Gokus case he’s had a tail and the associated glands. Possibly he had eno...
