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

Thinking too much is not a positive thing. Analysis paralysis isn't something you'd want in leadership. Analysis paralysis only happens when someone is what you described to the extreme. Vegeta isn't (except for the first Broly movie, which heavily mischaracterized him). I'm really just saying Whis...

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

:eh: This is why I don't like them teaming up: the conversations that follow. "Vegetto says Kakarot, so that means Vegeta is more dominant than Goku!" Vegeta has always been sort of the straight man for Goku. And when it comes to fighting, Whis said it best - Vegeta usually thinks before attacking, ...

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

Broly is obviously going to be stronger than the last opponents Goku and Vegeta faced. So instead of needing extras like SSBE or KK Blue, Toriyama has just plain old red and blue, enough to handle incredible opponents. Making the god forms special. All those forms stem from God ki. He’s saying that...

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

I'd like to see the bravery to follow through with the idea that saiyans don't have the same conception of family as humans rather than this "good father" triteness. Isn't this Paragus more or less the same as the old one? He pleaded with King Vegeta to spare his son's life and showed pride in his ...

Re: Going back to Adventures in the franchise

It would be welcome, but it's difficult as long as Goku can teleport. A big part of adventure arcs is the actual journey - and as long as you have a mechanism to move freely, you lose a lot of that. I haven't much of GT, but from my understanding they got around the problem by nerfing the technique...

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

To recap: several people have said that, others have brought up the fact that the name is actually supposed to BE "pot," but they pronounced it like they do in the Japanese version because that's how Japanese works, & it's, for the most part, been settled for now. You may want to review the last se...

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

Toriyama insists saying Goku is not a typical superhero and that's why he didn't like his portrayal in Toei Movies, and then proceeds to make his backstory exactly the same than Superman. I will never understand that man. It's probably because he thinks a character coming off like a superhero comes...

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

What exactly did they retcon? Please don't say the colour of the sky. I mean, if we look outside Earth you'll find it's blue colored, once you are in the planet, you see blue sky at daylight. If you look outside Vegeta, you'll see it's red colored, probably you would see that the sky is red too, ri...

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

You’ll never enjoy any story if you see things only in extremes. Life isn’t all black and white. Roshi can disapprove of Goku’s methods without treating him like a brain-damaged toddler upstart. So many seem to think he was talking down to Goku in that interaction... Condescension is the usual perc...

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

Why can't this dub stop adding in insults that don't belong? When did this happen? Constantly, but I assume you just mean this episode: Toei sub : Goku: "Sure! I wasn't satisfied with that last guy." Funimation dub : Goku: "You're on! You don't look like any more of a challenge than the last guy!" ...

I may be the only one that just realized this but It seems after reading Viz and mangastream Goku did indeed use Kaioken Blue. It's stated by Krillin in both translations that Goku indeed was using Kaioken. Even the aura is Kaioken like. Did Herms ever chime in on these particular events through tr...

JazzMazz said "without being complacent", though; that means he can still have surpassing Goku as his goal, he just doesn't have to be filled with resentment and insecurity. Resentment? Really?

In no way an insult? Poor teacher? Look back to the Cell and Boo arcs for a reminder of where Vegeta gets when left to his own devices; even having to resort to cheating to get on par. Before getting mad at your teacher for your own lack of proficiency, think about where you'd be without them. Whis...
