Re: GT and super similarities

I don't know if he got any threats, but Toriyama did say in Daizenshuu 2 (translation here ) that he considered making Gohan the lead before deciding that leaving Goku as the main character worked better: And then the Cell arc ended. Did you think that everyone felt you would put Gohan into the lead...

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

The assertion that Piccolo doesn't get involved in large-scale conflicts anymore isn't entirely true, though. It depends: Piccolo didn't fight Boo, for example, but he did take part in the fight against Freeza's forces in Resurrection F, as well as the Tournament of Power. He just picks his battles ...

Re: GT and super similarities

Right, I agree with SSJmole: Vegeta's desire to surpass, or at least keep up with Goku, was much more of an unhealthy obsession in the Cell and early Buu Saga, whereas in Super (and the Resurrection F film) it really is more of a friendly rivalry (I mean, as friendly as Vegeta gets, anyway). Vegeta ...

Re: Would you guys like a “canon” Shadow Dragon Arc?

Yes, I am not a fan of those rehashes either, and am very concerned that they are the future of dragon ball Even though Dragon Ball has "looked back" a bit with Super and its preceding films, we've gotten a lot of new things too, like Beerus, Whis, the Omni-Kings, Zamasu, the Great Priest, a multiv...

The Orange Bricks/Blu-Seasons are like the cheap unbranded candy you get at the dairy, while the Levels are like the Lindt chocolate bunnies.
I know I'm weak, but... I'd eat 'em both. The candy and the Lindt chocolate, that is.

Re: What happened to Oob?

I don't really harbor any particular favoritism when it comes to Oob. I just think he has potential. At any rate, any continuation would likely have Goku in a co-leading role or as the most prominent supporting character: either way, he'd continue to be a big player. Aside from showing Oob learning ...

Re: What happened to Oob?

Well, despite Dragon Ball and Z being the same saga, I think the change in tone (for a while, anyway) is of pretty significant note. For example, the Freeza Saga (save the Ginyu Force) has an enormous tonal difference from most of Goku's childhood adventures. Although frankly, the tone wouldn't nece...

Re: Would you guys like a “canon” Shadow Dragon Arc?

I agree that making the final villain Shenron-- well, several evil versions of him-- was a very thematic way to close out the series (and ties in well with the Elder Kaiōshin's warnings during the Buu Saga). A canon Shadow Dragon Arc could definitely be fun, sure: maybe this time, the dragons could ...

Re: What happened to Oob?

We need Oob because Gohan chose to be a scholar. And, as the Cell Saga pointed out, fighting-- or more specifically, hurting others-- isn't something Gohan's all that comfortable with. I mention Nam because he's an example of someone with a similar backstory to Oob's whose small arc was something Dr...

Re: What happened to Oob?

Hmm... I'm not so sure. Oob's backstory does resemble that of another character we've seen before in the series, which is Nam's: one was trying to help his village overcome a drought, while the other wanted to end his village's salvation. Of course, Nam never became a lead or was teased as one, but ...

Re: What happened to Oob?

I honestly wouldn't mind a series that takes place during the years Goku trained Oob. It would avoid having the series be another "EVERYTHING IS AT STAKE" storyline that focuses more on the characters. You can even have *gasp* nuance by showing Goku actively struggling with being forced to mature a...

Ah, but you're forgetting a fairly prominent example, at least in the world of the comics, which is Wally West. Although Barry Allen's back now, Wally successfully replaced Barry as the Flash for around 22 years. Many fans do consider Wally the more interesting of the two, and his stories as the Fla...

Re: How much discussion of "canon" was there pre-BOG?

I think the topic of "canon" seemed a little more clear-cut in the minds of fans before Super came into being. A lot fans in other communities I've been in considered the original manga to be the "true canon" and often discouraged people from using anime-only/"filler" scenes to make a point about th...
