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

Does anyone else think that the the End of Z draws near? I mean, Moro is a low angel-level threat apparently. Though his mastery over angelic power is pathetic, his raw power alone makes him formidable. Unless the Grand Priest goes rogue and is the villain of the next arc, I can't really imagine th...

Re: Super or GT poll

I’m kind of shocked that GT is currently leading in the poll. I thought whoever leading would be by a vote or 2, not nearly double as what GT's doing. I really wish Kanzenshuu allowed threads to have polls, at that would give us an accurate image of where they stand compared to one another, at leas...

Re: Super or GT poll

The T.O.P which is one of the worst sagas in all of Dragonball. It's not as bad as Super 17, but it's cutting it close. At least the Super 17 arc had the decency to just be 6 episodes long, that tournament and its build up were 55 episodes. To give an idea how long that is, the TOP arc is 17 hours ...

Re: Super or GT poll

Both are pretty bad and I honestly think it's closer than I ever realized. I think Super is better but only barely. I think the Baby saga is the only well-executed part of GT. The saga is good but it could be a lot better. Super has no saga executed well. BoG sucks and is just a worse version of th...

Re: I think it's time to admit that Toyotaro is a writer.

I think so too. Moreover, his Dragon Ball Super manga is one of the manga I've ever read. What's up with all these threads? Is this what we're doing tonight? Looks like this forum is running out of topics to talk about. We really need the anime back :D Let's hope for an announcement at Jump Fiesta ...

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

Except it took battle damage to awaken Majin Buu. If Goku just went Super Saiyan three there would be no fight. I think you misunderstood me on Freeza. Goku as a Super Saiyan let Freeza power up to 100% [buff mode] just so he could test his power out. Despite Kaiosama telling him to kill Freeza bef...

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

I don't understand all these DB revisionists and their unhealthy passion to make Goku something he is not. Goku giving Moro a senzu bean is not a "mistake." It's a purposeful intention to fulfill Goku's other side; his lust for combat against strong foes. Saiyan Saga: Let Vegeta live. After all the...

Re: How would Future Trunks react if he saw the Dragon Team shoot down Bulma's idea to find Dr Gero with the Dragon Ball

He'd be outraged I feel. He didn't have the luxury of the Dragonballs so he probably didn't have them in mind. However, after being reminded by Bulma's logical idea he'd be furious to hear them hesitate. He'd recommend they at least find it and maybe even warn Gero.

I do find it interesting though because the DBS Broly movie had an absolutely shallow cling to Z nostalgia but because it looked great no one minds. https://images6.fanpop.com/image/photos/33400000/Gogeta-vs-Broly-screen-shot-from-dragon-ball-budokai-3-dragon-ball-all-fusion-33486920-1362-741.png ht...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

Not going to stop anyone from having an opinion on one version of Super or the other, but I am ... pretty baffled by propping up the anime and putting down the manga specifically on a shared criteria of "repeating things from Z in a shallow way" as a negative. Were we watching the same Super anime?...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 10/12/20!)

I would love a DBTV about Dragonball Evolution. The movie is horrible and is honestly my least favorite film. However, its existence is surprisingly important to DB as a franchise and I would be interested to see a video on it.

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

I don't get the sense that Goku cares much of Piccolo does become better at that point, just as long as he doesn't start causing trouble. Goku's aim isn't to better others. He does it by example. The Dr. Gero thing is absolutely in character. He lets bad guys live to fight them later. That's his ex...

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

Goku isn't a superhero. He isn't. However, he is a good at heart person. I think there is more to Goku keeping Piccolo alive then just to fight. He told his son Piccolo Jr. isn't as bad. He probably thinks Piccolo can become a better person and friend. You don't have to be a superhero or entirley s...

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

Vegeta was born in AGE 732 (if you go by the guidebooks) and the planet is destroyed in AGE 739. That's a viable seven-year gap for Tarble and many other Saiyans to be born. So I must ask, what about it "does not make sense"? It can work, the issue I have is how they went about it. Someone as major...

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

Thats not true. Goku is not just selfish. He is pretty selfless. Yes he wants to fight strong people, but don't act like he didn't try and help Vegeta and Piccolo. He over the course of the Namek arc showcases more contempt with his Saiyan roots than in the previous arc. Goku doesn't care what peop...

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

What text or subtext leads you to believe that? There's nothing to support this claim and what you are describing doesn't sound like Goku at all. He doesn't set out to change their image. I think he does. Thats what his speech to Frieza means in my opinion. The reason its seems uncharacteristically...

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

except after first hearing about it he's not cold towards it. He's fine with being a Saiyan. Calling out their actions isn't a sign of resentment. Yeah they were horrible, but Goku's resentment was deeper than their actions. He didn't enjoy the way people viewed him because he was a Saiyan. Essenti...
