Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Haha, seeing as 11's counterpart Universe 2 is all about beauty in the eye of the beholder I'm sure Jiren does have his in-universe and out of universe fans. But man, it feels like he was designed to be the opposite of the handsome newcomer in both looks and personality. My crackpot conspiracy theo...

Re: One great thing about this arc that we can all agree on

I can definitely agree that the opening is good. One of the lines is even "I'm used to bein' confused!" It's almost as if Toei is self-aware of its own writing.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Based on what we currently know about Jiren, yeah I can see that. If there's anywhere Jiren's lacking to complete the role it's his bland design. His physical appearance has no pizzazz to it. A Mary or Gary Sue usually looks "sexually attractive" on sight. What? Are you saying you don't find his Ar...

Re: How strong will the fusion between kale and caulifa be?

As strong as they want it to be. Fusions are one of Dragon Ball's "get out of jail free" cards, making someone as strong as is necessary for the plot without arousing much in the way of complaints.

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

I haven't worked out a full thought on this, but I've always found it instructive to think of ki/energy like magic. As in mana. It's something you have a supply of, but it's also something that's generated. Goku burned through all his supply, but he's still capable of building it back up. I saw Ter...

Yes, you're right, I was very rude and I apologized in another post..somewhere around here albeit perhaps a little poorly, but so as too not have the hassle of looking for it, I'm sorry for generalizing and coming off as dismissive.

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

The show went out of it's way to give you a reason for what happened using what we know. It didn't make anything up. And even then it didn't stay that way the whole fight. Goku eventually got overpowered anyway! This is totally the middle ground. If someone doesn't want to accept it then that's fin...

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

I like Goku and I don't dislike the girls, and while I don't mind them being involved, it doesn't feel like their battle is taking place during the tournament. I know that sounds weird and it's hard for me to explain, but without the cuts to the Gods talking, I wouldn't know it was a battle royal. ...

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

I re-watched the episode, and it really hammered home a few points to me. I feel I should go over the episode to slowly build up why I felt it didn't really work. First of all, it starts with Goku quite clearly saying he can't use all of his power, as he's still weakened from his fight with Jiren. C...

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

Except we have already seen in Super skill beating pure strength with Roshi and Genos. Piccolo also almost beat Frost despite the power different. We have no indication for how much stronger Ganos was than Roshi, only that he was, in fact, stronger. The difference may not have been that large for a...

Re: Super Episode 113 (29 October 2017)

I know they "justified" Goku being in base and giving a beating to Caulifla. That doesn't fly with me, you can't just ignore well established rules to this degree. . They sure as hell can. This isn't a video game. There aren't any rules that state that "if Enemy saiyan is in state [ NUM ] then user...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

4.) I still refuse to believe Androids 19 and 20 (before 19 absorbs Goku's energy, at least) were stronger than Freeza. I just refuse to accept that Piccolo got that much stronger in 3 years. That's not unpopular. It isn't? I always thought I was in the minority on this one, as most people I hear t...

Things I Liked: -Kale and Caulifla's teamwork was pretty cool. -Goku was, in a bizarre twist of expectations, actually kind of interesting this episode. -Umm... some of the action was good. Things I'm Mixed On: -Base Goku knocking around a SSJ(2?) Caulifla was silly, but they at least gave some sor...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

This is currently a provisional title, so I'm not even close to convinced this is a thing yet. That said, I feel this is going to go one of two ways if true. Firstly, they already know a form of fusion, in which case it's whatever. Alternatively, Goku teaches them how to fuse in the middle of this t...

I made a point to say I don't see a lot of it HERE. But I'm not going to say I don't see it a little and in more subtle ways. I'm not calling anyone out in particular, hell I wouldn't even know who to call out if I wanted to, I'm just saying, it doesn't hurt to try to be a little more mindful about...

Re: Super Episode 112 (22 October 2017)

There is a MASSIVE amount of sexism and overt male chauvinism and even just general toxic masculinity in at least the American Dragon Ball fanbase, so much it's often appalling to read through youtube comments on Dragon Ball videos. Not saying there's a lot of it HERE, but I do think some of the le...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

2) You aren't supposed to like his actions, but does that prevent him from being interesting just because he's arrogant? 3) I get that characters should struggle, but what's better about the heroes losing? 2.) I never said he wasn't interesting, just that I don't like him. And it is "unpopular DB o...

I actually dislike Vegeta post-Android arc. He nearly doomed Earth twice because of his damned pride. 3.) I prefer...

Re: Things that grind your gears

New thing that grinds my gears: people constantly defending any new transformation Universe 6 gets with "well, Goten and Trunks unlocked SSJ and they were kids." I don't know what the popular opinion is, but I have NEVER regarded Goten unlocking SSJ because he got a little scared of his mom as good ...
