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

This isn't about how people refer him or what they think of him. It's about how he presents himself. Cheelay asks who he is, and he says "I'm Kakarot." Not "I'm Son Goku, otherwise known as Kakarot." Perhaps I'm misreading you...but that's just what he said in Japanese. I saw you mention you saw th...

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

Goku lost his martial arts way for a moment, and what did he do when Roshi showed him his flimsy UI footwork? Literally exactly what you just said. How can you say he lost his way for a "moment" now when earlier you said he's ignored/forgotten his teachings for decades(since Raditz) and has relied ...

I don't know why so many people seem to miss this. Well...yes, I do. It's because they get caught up in strength comparisons and become so worked up that they misinterpret what is happening on the page.

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

Somethings I like that weren't mention in the initial summary leak that we got is after Goku gets up from Rage Broly's Giant green blast, Broly actually smiles at seeing him and goes back in. And in the end he also smiles not only being on friendly terms with Goku but the idea of training with him ...

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

You mean how Goku would Master a power up just because he is having a hard fight just like in the TOP. It would be even worse because we literally just saw UI but now a movie later he can now do it whenever he wants. It’s not a new plateau if Goku could just do it one movie later with no actual str...

...and to think there were people who didn't want Gogeta to be in this movie. Holy shit were all of his scenes beautifully animated. People still might not want him simply because he's seen just as fan service and does nothing to further the story besides beating up the bad guy. Animation isn't eve...

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

"God of Destruction" now and they've reverted back to "senzu bean". For the love of god, just have to accept we'll have inconsistent terms in the dub I guess. "God of Destruction" never went away, though. I'm pretty sure it's been used in English marketing of the series. Hell, it was used in the Ba...

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

Toriyama's canon is just a marketing ploy meant to sell stuff to people. Personally I prefer to take an approach identical to comic books, everything is just different takes on the same concept but that doesn't make any version worth less or more than other. Comics are more familiar with the concep...

TKA wrote:It's the equivalent of saying "Darth Vader only beat Obi-Wan because he was a tired old man." Yes, it's true Obi-Wan is a tired old man, but the point of the scene was that Vader had surpassed him.
I thought the point of that scene was that Vader could never surpass him.

Re: Goku's kaioken is the worst thing ever for dragonball series

Is that supposed to be logical? Seems awfully spurious to me. It's just a position. Do you think that King Kai should be able to do all of Zamasu's techniques? If he became a Supreme Kai? Then yes. These positions usually come with certain powers. Kaio-ken itself, though, is something we know he cr...

Re: Goku's kaioken is the worst thing ever for dragonball series

There is no logical reason why Black couldn't use Kaio-ken. Zamasu was a North Kai just like King Kai, the one who created that technique. Is that supposed to be logical? Seems awfully spurious to me. It's just a position. Do you think that King Kai should be able to do all of Zamasu's techniques? ...

Re: Goku's continual evolution in Super.

What exactly are you doing in Zeno's bedroom? Goku's continued progression is my primary interest, and I'd describe his progress in both mediums thus far as glacial , at best. Feels like a treadmill. I largely attribute this to the shifting goalpost that is Beerus. Because his strength can't be nail...

Some of you guys are really underestimating the galactic patrollers... Merusu is the number 1 elite patrolman who is in charge of 104 districts and it's totally understandable that he can, at least, knock out Goku and Vegeta with a "tranquillizer gun". Oh, wow, 104 districts? I didn't know it was t...

I'm still mad that they announced Nappa and Raditz for the movie before Caulifla and Kale. That's a load of BS. You shouldn't expect to see them ever again.

Re: Should the Z-fighters split up after the Broly movie?

No, because most of the “Z Fighters” shouldn’t be playing an active role in the story anymore. I see no real benefit to shoving Tenshinhan or Yamcha back into the spotlight. Their arcs are done and the Tournament of Power basically showed that there’s no meaningful ground left to tread with most of...
