Re: Would you have liked to see Paikuhan/Pikkon in the Universe Survival Arc?

Yes I would have liked to see him instead of 17. I think he is one character that should be more official. The thing is, we already got Piccolo. That's like saying you'd prefer to have Cooler in than Android 17. Derivative characters are superfluous, redundant. The fact that the writers thus far ha...

Re: Fox Will Distribute Dragon Ball Super Movie in Latin America

I hope they have enough time to dub it. As much as I loved Battle of Gods, you could tell they rushed the dub and it was really awkward in many places.

Re: What’s everyone’s opinion on how the manga has so far handled the Universe Survival arc compared to the anime?

Not a fan, really. I don't mind him underusing the characters (like my boy Tien) or the poor choreography in some of the fights: it's a different take on the story and I like we have two versions of the story, more to watch and all. My main issue is that Toyo's terrible in his presentation. I posted...

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

Finally got around to reading the latest chapter, and... man, what happened to Toyo? I haven't been a huge fan of the manga, but I could still respect he was trying to tell his own version and sometimes the fights were fun to look at, but these past few chapters have been terrible. The artwork is fl...

Re: What in the Universe Survival Arc did you hate most?

I mean would it really make sense for Tien NOT to be punched once by Gohan and be out of the fight? Tien is a human and throughout the entire story the humans were always far far behind the Saiyans. Gohan after his training with Piccolo was extremely strong and it would be irrational for Tien to be...

Re: Has Super impacted your opinion on GT at all?

It hasn't really changed my mind. You may see me joke around about GT being terrible, but I actually quite like it quite a lot. I watched it growing up, so flaws and all it has a special place in my heart.

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

It goes to show how little importance was put on Piccolo in the outline and how those 2 Namakinas were just created to fill a number count for U6, not play any major role in the story or for Piccolo. I give the anime props for using the 3 better. Yeah, even if they didn't matter at the end we got t...

Re: Vegeta's incompetent

I just wanted it to actually mean something. It's Vegeta admitting defeat and putting all his faith in Goku, he's even crying as he gives the energy to him, and then 5 seconds later Goku uses that energy to do absolutely nothing except get destroyed again. I think what accomplished is that it made ...

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

I wouldn't cling too tightly to that image of who Jiren seemed to be in chapter 30. Expect him to reveal a very different face by the end. There's certainly no need to cling to that; I don't doubt that we could potentially see a darker side to Jiren as the arc approaches its climax. The manga is cl...

Re: Dragon Ball Super's power levels are much lower than GT

Gohan has been training since the end of Resurrection F, though. You see him during the Universe 6 Arc, and arguably at the end of the Black Arc where he says goodbye to Trunks. I really don't know why people keep ignoring that.

Re: Piccolo needs a new power-up

I'd love for him to get stronger, but not equal to Goku or the others. The thing I like about him is that he's strong but fights by using his brain and all his awesome techniques. I feel his perfect place would be at around SSJG level, then using all his moves (extending his arms, maybe growing gian...

I'm mostly okay with how the Tournament went, but there's one thing I disliked, and one I outright hated: 1) I really disliked Hit vs Jiren. He had a good participation during the tournament, but the battle against Jiren suffered from poor choreography and was just very boring overall. For a charact...

Re: Kaioken Blue vs Mastered Super Saiyan Blue. Which is Better?

That's just the thing. I see no substance in Complete SSB that Kaioken/Blue doesn't have, nor even regular SSB. Like, what can Complete SSB do that regular SSB can't? It has nothing unique that I can see value in, doesn't really mesh with the concept of SSB I've taken a liking too, and just doesn't...

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

The real message of that is Zamas isn't good enough to be an actual Kaioshin, yet thinks himself so superior (despite ACTUAL Kaioshin thinking what he's doing is 10 different kinds of stupid). That's the irony inherent in the character—he thinks himself a god but he doesn't even qualify as one. Oka...

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

At first the flaw was that you couldn't transform over and over like the other transformations, because the act of transforming took a lot of stamina. That was never the flaw and this definitely seems to be a classic case of misinformation within the fandom. Whis just stated that Blue can't be used...

Re: Kaioken Blue vs Mastered Super Saiyan Blue. Which is Better?

I prefer Kaioken Blue. I don't mind Mastered/Completed Blue, but I do dislike how inconsistent it became from one chapter to another. It supposedly lets you use Blue's full power for longer (because in normal Blue the full power only lasts a few minutes before you get weaker) but by the ToP it appa...
