Re: Do you think Super would have benefited by holding off on Super Saiyan Blue?

As much as I enjoyed the SSB reveal in Resurrection of F (and even more so the reveal that Vegeta had also learned to do it), I do agree that it's a pity Super Saiyan God didn't really get much of a moment to shine outside of Battle of Gods. I definitely think Toriyama and co. could have played a bi...

Re: Uub's role after EOZ

I don't think any series that transitioned to a new generation has ever had as much success as their predecessors. Boruto isn't as successful as Naruto. In some stories, Bruce Wayne retires and passes the torch to an older Robin or new, younger Batman but there's new comics, films, video games, etc...

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

Also, it's cool to think that Kid Buu actually had some god ki. He would need to have a mix of mortal and god since his ki could be sensed. Right, and maybe that's why Vegeta underestimated Kid Buu before Kid blew up Earth-- he could only sense a PART of Kid Buu's power. I did always find it weird ...

Very excited about the movie news. Geekdom mentioned in the video he's still convinced that Super is also returning as an anime series, so we'll have to wait and see if he's right. July's just a month away, so we won't have to wait long to find out...

The OP thing is even more of a dumb reasoning because a) DB & OP are not competing. b) A TV show & a movie are non competing mediums. c) OP has it's own new arc starting in its tv series in July so why the hell would anyone think DBS got delayed for the OP movie :lol: Yeah... well, I'm not sure Gee...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Hmm, I'm curious... when Goku says that Piccolo Daimao's essence was transferred into Piccolo Jr., can we take that to mean Daimao's soul? "Essence" is somewhat vague, so I'm curious if the term used in the original Japanese dialogue can also be interpreted as "soul," or if it's similarly open to in...

Re: Am I The Only DB Fan Who Likes Jiren?

I think I may be the only person in this entire fandom who thinks Jiren "The Grey" is a cool character. It seems no one else likes him besides me which is fine because I always seem to like things everyone hates like DB: Evolution, Spiderman 3 and Zamasu. So my question is am I the lone Jiren fan o...

Re: Return of Brutal fights in dragon ball super 2

The manga has had some gruesome moments in the recent Moro arc. As for the anime, I think Japan's censorship rules have become a little stricter in recent years, right?

I'm going to pick out some of the bigger differences for me from the original post and go through them individually. Hope this format's alright!

Re: Which arcs do you think each recurring character was best and worst potrayed in and why?

I think I'm going to break the format here and pick a single character: Bulma. My favorite arc for her was the Android/Cell arc, since that's where we really got to see her shine as a brilliant and competent scientist. It really shaped her portrayal in Dragon Ball Super, which is the series that I f...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Although 2uper is going to happen sooner or later, maybe Toei and everyone else involved decided it might be best for the franchise to take breaks every few years to avoid franchise fatigue. Super 0.1 is still getting new dubbed episodes internationally and is overall still fresh in fans' minds. Ma...

Re: Why did Super Boo reverted to Kid Boo instead of Grey Skinny Boo after Good Boo was torn out from inside?

If I may wildly speculate... I always thought this was because Kid Boo no longer had any trace of the Dai Kaioshin in his body when good Boo was taken out of him. We know that absorbing the Dai Kaioshin created a profound change in Boo (in both demeanour and strength-- Kid Boo's clearly stronger tha...

Haha, if you don't mind a more comical (and detailed) suggestion, I'd like to throw an idea into the fray... So let's imagine a world where Goku was not brought back to life by the Elder Kaioshin and Bee and Mr. Satan were never shot. Mr. Satan has managed to convince Boo not to harm anyone, but he ...

I get what you're saying, but considering how many sources independently told Ajay and Geekdom that Super was returning (15 for Ajay and 13+ for Geekdom, though I don't know if they share any sources) ... that'd sure be a lot of people either flat-out getting it wrong or deliberately misleading them...

Re: "Call Me Kakarot" Scene Explained! | Dragon Ball Super: Broly

I only saw it as a clever nod to the fact that it's all the original Broly ever said without much else to read into. I saw it as both, actually. It's definitely a nod to the original Broly screaming Goku's name, but I also see it as Goku acknowledging his Saiyan identity (and not just his heritage)...

Re: So how do we explain Fat Buu faring so well against Moro in the latest Manga Chapter?

Those same thoughts were running through my head too, but I'm hopeful the next chapter will provide answers. I do wonder if the passive magic in Buu's body somehow messes with the extra strength Moro acquired through his own magic.

Re: Which dub opening rap is better? GT or One Piece?

Well... the One Piece rap makes me cringe, but the GT one just makes me laugh. It's a catchy sort of bad (well, except the "Aaaaaaaaaaah"), and the melody could be worse. It's strangely charming in its ridiculousness :lol:
