Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I rewatched Super episode #068 and man the first time I thought it was awful, but a second time it was funny to see how manipulating Bulma could be to achieve her goals. She overtipped the chef from the restaurant to keep Beerus and Whis busy, called hookers to make Roshi give up from his wish, con...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Maybe Super Saiyan God just never was as strong as Super Saiyan Vegito after all. Base Kefla was shown to be above Super Saiyan God Goku. He was tired so it's hard to say if he would still be when he was at full strength but maybe the movie will clear some things up. Super Saiyan 2 Kefla was a matc...

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

https://twitter.com/herms98/status/1070894177292967936?s=21 Well, replacing "attempt" with "experiment" or "trial" still sounds like they're talking exclusively about Broly and Gogeta, and the previous sentence was also speaking exclusively about Broly and Gogeta too, so it doesn't sound like it's ...

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

I frankly think that the ending of the manga was handled extremely poorly. We’re supposed to buy this idea that #17’s wish was his way of sticking it to the Zen-Ohs, except that really doesn’t work when you realize that there is absolutely nothing preventing the little psychopaths from just wiping ...

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

Goku says he may have to resorts to blowing himself up as it's the only thing he can think of. And then Goku blows himself up, but #17 manages to survive by putting up a barrier at the last moment, while Goku also manages to survive because... reasons. Although he regress back to childlike base for...

Re: Goku's kaioken is the worst thing ever for dragonball series

Kaioken, and it's respective multipliers, was created in response to Toriyama realising he made the antagonists to fucking powerful for it to seem believe for Goku to beat them without some kind of ace up his sleeve. It's Power Creep 101. Personally, I'm happy that the Kaioken made a comeback in th...

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

Dragon Ball GT already provided that context that characters who blow themselves up can survive. When? I only remember Goku considering to do it, and then he says that if it doesn't work everyone is doomed, but I don't remember other characters actualy doing it. Official sources has Choutzu and Veg...

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

So I was reading manga ToP again to confirm the 17 thing, and well, I was wrong when I said that there's no screen time about him and Freeza talking with each other much, since in hindsight, it's blatantly obvious he was planning the "self destruct": https://i.imgur.com/Gshv3I9.png The plan is still...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

It feels like there's some goalpost moving here. Vegeta gets a entire episode to himself, not enough. Vegeta gets his own Super Saiyan 4 form, not enough. Vegeta takes part in holding the line in 2 major battles, not enough. Vegeta takes part in another fusion, not enough. All of this screen time a...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

There seems to be this widespread idea that Vegito is far more powerful than Gogeta and I have no idea how this come about but it might not be the case then? According to that anyway then Gogeta is stronger. It's because old Kai says that potara fusion is better than fusion dance, and many took it ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Again, Goku is the central character, of course he's going to get the spotlight most of the time. That being said, it's an oversimplification to say that no other characters get the spotlight. You already mentioned Piccolo, but Vegeta starts getting a fair amount of screen time as the show goes on,...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

That wouldn't explain why Gotenks defuses after 5 minutes, but it is possible that SS3 is just a generally unstable form. Gotenks didn't even defuse after 5 minutes with SS3, he just couldn't maintain it for more than 5 minutes, after that was over, he just went back to base form, still fused, and ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I was fine with him being the butt of jokes for a while, but it got pretty ridiculous by the Universal Survival arc. Not only did Yamcha get overlooked in favor of the Muten Roshi, but when they were desperately looking for a 10th fighter for Universe 7, you’re telling me that no one even considere...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Its weird because none of the stories post Battle of Gods connect to one another, Revival of F, Universe 6, Zamasu and even the Top all feel like they could be direct sequels to BoG and dont have to happen in the order that they did or amongst one another. Without RoF there's no Freeza in ToP, with...

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

Building on Old Kaioshin's point is a terrible thing, because his line was originally him being sour, not 'by the way this will DESTROY THE UNIVERSE' - it completely mismatches the severity of the warning he gave and trying to tie them together just doesn't fit. Yeah trying to amplify how grave tha...

Re: Does Dragon Ball have the largest, least toxic, fandom in existence of fictional franchises?

The thing I find bizzare is that the community at large seems to like the Saiyin chicks, now. I saw more people asking for them to appear in the movie than anything else. They were handled poorly, tho I love their designs and personality. It seems the irrational hate has died down, which is pretty ...

Re: Inconsistencies within the manga

Goku was able to smell Bulma coming from a significant distance, but unable to recognize all the disguised fighters. At the very least that's justified with Jack Chun, since Roshi was using perfume. Was it ever explained in the manga how Future Zamasu was able to use the Time Ring even though he wa...
