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

Personally Moro's best form BY FAR was his "Angel 7-3 fusion" form: https://i.ibb.co/FJw5Pdv/de798bk-451e52fb-1cd1-4e0c-83f3-ffd20416c08c-1.png Very regal/clean-looking design. The white fur is a clever detail too. It's a shame that this form lasted for... what? A single chapter? I think this shoul...

It's not about intelligence if his aim is to have a good fight. Again, I point to Piccolo wanting to fight Freeza well before Gohan was in danger.
But he didn't have an opportunity to stop Frieza beforehand

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

It feels completely out of character for him. What about Piccolo leads you to think he would want to preemptively stop them? After merging with Kami, sure, but before? I agree about Kuririn and Tenshinhan, though Kuririn does give a decent argument as to why they should wait to fight the cyborgs. I...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

But my point is Piccolo by trying to stop A17 and A18 from awakening after the time skip is acting how he should have acted back when Trunks presented the android threat It feels completely out of character for him. What about Piccolo leads you to think he would want to preemptively stop them? Afte...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

based on what? He is the reincarnated demon king and was all too happy to poke the bear before fighting Freeza. Who is Piccolo at that point to you? Because years later when given the same task he does it. Piccolo likes fighting but he has proven himself someone who will sacrifice a fair fight for ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

But of course that’s not out of character no that's not, him allowing Gero to build them three years prior is I would say based on what?

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

he is concrete bound! He will try to t fight and stop it when it is in front of him. And we need to draw a distinction between pre and post merge with Kami He tries to stop the androids before fusing with Kami. But of course that’s not out of character no, that's not, him allowing Gero to build the...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

You can point to similar things with Goku but as has been stated the are very concrete bound. Piccolo was also excited to pick a fight with Freeza. That wasn’t OoC. He is the reincarnated demon king But then why does he try to stop the androids later? He likes a good fight but Piccolo is not stupid...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I have, and I don't agree. So much of how Goku is seen by western fans is influenced by the dub. Like this conversation, I see a lot of people dropping context and blowing little lines out of proportion and refusing to acknowledge that Goku putting the world in danger for the sake of a fight is not...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Goku being scared about the idea of Saiyans stronger than Raditz probably had more to do with the situation he was in - Gohan being kidnapped. He wasn't in the state of mind to care about challenges. Now it was, "For fuck's sake, MORE people who can put my family in danger?!" Confirmed by how excit...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I mean what I wrote. He didn't set up the tournament. Zeno did. Goku only made the tournament happen quicker but he didn't create it which is what you stated. That's not setting it up. So Goku is acting out of character to you because he says he's scared once? I'm sure he is frightened but he's als...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

First, it comes from TVtropes.com which basically takes any two instances of something happening, and considers it a trope. And the term implies Flanders is a complete exaggeration which is an unfair assessment as Flanders is quite nuanced. Second, Goku did not set up the Tournament of Power. And h...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Goku wasn't flanderized (such a nonsense term). Those instances you are talking about are Goku helping out people he met along the way. I've already covered this. He doesn't go looking for them. He will help people when he sees them suffering, but he's very concrete bound. He doesn't go looking for...

Goku has been somewhat flanderized as the series progressed especially in Super. Goku always wanted competition but contrary to popular belief he was a good person. Saves turtle for no reason other than to help Decides to save Bora to save Bora and to stop the evil Red Ribbon Army, the prospect of f...

Specifically drafting a story I will always consider planning but oh well. I see your point you see mine.

more appalled by the disrespect to Dr. Strangelove lol
