I'm guessing that Toei decided to use her as a parody of the magical girl genre because of her design and that's why she showed up as much as she did.

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

Boy I can tell from those spoilers that I'm gonna be pretty conflicted while reading it. But as always I'll wait for the chapter to come out before I start ranting and raving.

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

I'm assuming we'll be getting leaks soon so I'm going to predict that we will see more of the Jiren vs Goku fight next chapter with a dash of Vegeta vs Toppo/Dyspo. But considering how wrong my prediction was for chapter 35 I'm not so sure. Wouldn't mind though if the next chapter ended up focusing ...

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

I myself am not that big a fan of fan service in most mediums so I never liked it all that much in regards to Bulma. Not that I'm totally against raunchy humour either it's just I never found the gags between Bulma or Roshi to be very funny. I think it crossed a line but some others probably don't t...

Re: GT or Super? Which one is the best?

I think another advantage Super has over GT is that it has a Manga counter part while GT did not. So even if you didn't like the anime you have the manga version that you can read instead. Super also has the chance to further improve itself if it continues after the upcoming movie, unless they drop ...

Re: GT vs Super [POLL]

I feel that both are rather poor follow up's to Z but if I were forced to watch one I'd pick Super over GT. Mainly being that Super was able to keep me engaged while GT did not. After posting my general thoughts on the first arc I haven't gone back to it since as I had become quickly bored. Maybe I'...

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

Now this is probably a foolish thing to ask for as this is Dragon Ball but I hope we don't have a power creep in this movie. I'd rather than the villain just being stronger than the previous one that they have a unique ability or fighting style that makes them a challenge to deal with. I guess what ...

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

Just read the tweets from Herms and my interest in the movie has begun to rise once again. A multilayered story sounds neat and it seems like the past aspect will have more focus that I thought it would. Really hope that the new planet mentioned ends up being Sadala. While my hopes have risen for th...

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

One thing I'm rather curious about is how this movie will handle tension. As much as I like Beerus and Whis its hard to have any tension with those two around. As well as that Goku has UI now and even if he gets close to being beaten that form can pop up and destroy the villain. So when the movie c...

Re: it's time to do a dragonball live action movie

I never understood the appeal of turning something animated into live action as to me it always looks terrible. And I mean we did get a live action via Dragonball Evolution and it was pretty bad. Though I do vaguely remember another live action DB movie that was done a while ago but I can't recall w...

I'm just hoping that this movie has a good story as it's the only aspect so far I'm not so confident about. On that topic while I'm still not that interested in another saiyan villain or whatever he turns out to be, I hope the new saiyan brings something interesting to the table. I just don't want h...

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

No prob! We're square. :thumbup: You actually touched on a part of my specific situation. Out of all of my friends IRL, only one of them really likes Dragon Ball as much as I do and he doesn't really think much of Super as a whole - anime or manga. As such, he hasn't kept up with Super beyond watch...

Not to sound like a douche but this is a Internet forum and not an echo chamber so it's no surprise that not everyone agrees with one another when it comes to something.

Well, I was super excited about this chapter this morning and thought about gushing a little here before going to bed, but I thought "Nah, I'll post about it tomorrow. It can wait.". Reading through the thread today, I don't feel excited anymore - just sad. I realize I should have gone ahead and go...

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

Personally I don't really care if Hit got an elimination here or not in this version it's just that his performance against Jiren was as disappointing to me as the anime version. I think the only reason why I slightly prefer him in the anime version is not because of him getting more eliminations bu...

On second thought the fight between Goku and Toppo/Dyspo annoys me some what. So please correct me if I am wrong about this as I am relying on my crappy memory but, the god form doesn't use up much stamina right?

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

Found this chapter to be pretty underwhelming overall and is so far my least favourite chapter of the arc. The only things I really liked was Goku and Hit fighting Jiren together and Goku fighting Toppo and Dyspo. I still think Hit vs Dyspo is the best fight Hit got because I don't really like eithe...

Re: Things that grind your gears

People who bash a character solely because they preformed better than their favourite character did. Saw this attitude quite a bit during the TOP and can't say I was a fan of it.
