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

[spoiler]Well damn my guess about this chapter being focused on Roshi and the saiyan girl duo was pretty wrong. Surprised that we're getting Goku vs Jiren so soon I wasn't expecting it for another few chapters at least. The fight between Hit and Jiren wasn't half bad and I liked the team up with Gok...

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

I feel that's one of the more negative aspects of the fanbase is that some people tend to jump to conclusions about an episode or chapter after reading some leaks and end up bashing it before it even comes out. Yet when the actual chapter or episode is out it isn't as bad as they had thought it was ...

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

Black isn't even a comparison. His manga version is so much better. That moment where he stabs Gowasu in the belly and says he's already killed him twice was the character's best moment, period. Even the way he's drawn is better than the anime's for me, even with just the thicker outlines around hi...

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

Thought I'd throw in my two cents and say that I wasn't a big fan of how the manga portrayed Hit and Black and prefer their anime counterparts. I will say that the manga so far has done a much better job of handling Jiren than the anime did. Speaking of Hit I kinda want to see him and Toppo fight in...

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

Not that it wasn't obvious before but it's nice to get conformation that the dude is a saiyan. Can't say I'm thrilled though as we've already had saiyan villains before and Vegeta is still easily the best one we ever got. All I hope is that the dude doesn't look like Goku and at the very least has a...

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

That was probably due to his awful elimination episode, which I still rank as being one of the worst episodes of the entire tournament pretty easily. For an episode that was supposed to send off a fan favourite like Hit, it was awfully underwhelming in every respect. The direction and storyboarding...

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

I would gladly trade Kale and Caulifa's screen time for more of Hit, the U6 Namekians and maybe even the BotaMagetta dynamic. Toyotaro is already following a semi-predictable sequence of actions. For once let's see something important shift in the tournament that doesn't involve grandstanding the o...

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

If Hit and Dsypo fight each other here I hope that Hit is able to knockout Dyspo and this ends up being the reason him and Jiren fight. Hell I just hope the dude does better overall because his performance in the anime while not terrible left me wanting more. That was probably due to his awful elim...

Re: Super's Manga vs Super's Anime Discussion

I can't really say I agree with people saying that Tien and Krillin being knocked out creates tension, since those two are the weaker members of the team. I'd be inclined to agree if it were Vegeta or Goku getting knocked out right away for example but not with those two. Hell I feel that the manga ...

Re: Thoughts on Ribrianne?

Yeah I'm not surprised with how well U7 did either as you said they are the main universe. I just wish that they would have given some wins to the other universes because U7 being so dominant throughout the tournament killed a lot of the tension the arc could have had, but that's a issue for anothe...

Re: Thoughts on Ribrianne?

To me she was one of the more enjoyable characters introduced this arc and I at the very least enjoyed her antics. Though one thing I found to be a bit odd in retrospect was the amount of screen time she got, not that I'm saying its a bad thing. Let me explain, before the tournament had begun she w...

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

I know Jiren is the main antagonist and all but I just didn't really care for his fight with Goku in the anime, due mostly to how dragged out their fight was in the final act. So I doubt I'll care much for the fight in this version and I hope that it doesn't get as much focus here as it did in the ...

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

I'll be fine with the fodder being taken out so quickly if this does mean we get more focus of the major characters that didn't get much such as Toppo, Dyspo, Hit, etc. But it wont surprise me if Goku and Jiren get most of that focus while the others get some. I know Jiren is the main antagonist and...

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

I think that U7 elimination order will be the same the only difference being which characters eliminate them. Granted I don't have much to back up my claim other than Tien being eliminated by Frost. But since the elimination order is the same as the anime so far I expect Roshi to go out in the next ...

Re: Boobs

Even though Goten basically looks like Kid Goku I'd accept it as its better than a fourth Adult Goku clone. Who knows maybe this will happen, after all we got Blanco to become an actual thing via Ultra instinct, so anything is possible now. As much as I adore Kid Goku, I love Goten's long sleeves a...

Re: Boobs

Guess that means Ribrianne is best girl since she's the most distinct looking female character currently. Jokes aside, as some others have said the reason why they look so similar is due to Toriyama's new art style. Also speaking of characters looking similar to one another I'm hoping that the new ...

Re: I'm happy that the last 3 fighters were not all saiyans

That's why I liked the fight against Jiren as much as I did since we had two non saiyans play a big role in the final fight against the major boss of the arc. Now please correct me if I'm wrong but I can't remember or recall any other instance were a non saiyan has played a big role in the final fi...
