Re: What statements in the manga would you change to fix power scalling?

Just one statement for me - I would not have Piccolo be shocked that Gotenks could transform to SSJ *after* fusing. Removes a ton of bloat (instead of requiring base Gotenks post-ROSAT > SSJ Gotenks pre-ROSAT, it just would mean SSJ Gotenks post-ROSAT > SSJ Gotenks pre-ROSAT). Power scaling gets out...

Re: What do you wish was done differently now that Super is over?

Honestly, I probably would need to rewatch. Been so long since I saw the BoG/RoF anime portions. Here are some general thoughts though: • I think I'd have Freeza be brought back to life before BoG. I'd also introduce the Champa/Vados stuff earlier. That way, you have a bunch of things going on at th...

Is Freeza a top 5 most important character in DB-DBZ-DBS?

So I think if you take DB-DBZ as a whole, the most important characters (in terms of how often they appear, relevance to the plot, etc) are probably: (1) Goku (2) Gohan (3a & 3b) Piccolo and Vegeta (5) Bulma or Kuririn Once DBS is included, I think it becomes more like: (1) Goku (2a & 2b) Gohan & Ve...

Re: Now that Super is finished, what is the overall consensus of the series?

The Future Trunks/Zamasu stuff was the best standalone arc, though my issue is you can remove it from the plot, and nothing is affected in terms of the whole story. Still, I think it was written pretty well. Actually, on second thought, I think it has some value: • World-building (U10) gives a thir...

Re: Now that Super is finished, what is the overall consensus of the series?

Honestly, it's really hard to top DBZ at its best. I think the Saiyan, Namek, and Android sagas were very well-executed, and felt pretty epic. We'd begin from a state of peace, there'd be some initial threat or warning, followed by awesome training scenes, high tension, surprising climax and a satis...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Can't believe the big day is finally here. I'm really excited about the possibilities of how this can end. Pretty much any outcome would be terrific to me, aside from Freeza being sent back to hell (even him trying to make a wish and being erased would have more of a payoff, though I'm crossing my f...

Re: i think Akira's time is over with the Dragonball series

There is no Dragonball without Toriyama, GT proved that lol. Spot on. This is how I feel as well. I'm not really interested in Dragon Ball, other than the universe (or I guess I should say multiverse?) Toriyama envisions. It's difficult enough trying to parse out which ideas are and are not his fro...

Hope so. Kind of worried that they'll try something corny (i.e. having his time run out from using Golden too much), would be disappointing if he isn't revived.

Re: The Goku-Vegeta rivalry is the most overrated rivalry in fiction and should be concluded in Super

The anime must have changed directors after the Zamasu arc because I noticed up till then Goku and Vegeta were portrayed with similar levels of prominence. But after Zamasu, Vegeta got dropped like hot coal and was seeming deliberately written out of the show. He didn't have a single fight for 32 e...

In light of the apparent conclusion, I wonder if Jiren himself has UI? Some exposition would be nice.

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

I don't want to spoil the ending for people not keeping up with Herms, so using a spoiler tag: [spoiler]Given that Freeza is either going to win, tie, or finish as the last U7 member to go down, his recruitment was really underwhelming. Much prefer how the anime handled it. Also, I really hope that ...

You know what's interesting? The way it's written, all three of Goku/Vegeta/Freeza look good: • Goku gets Mastered UI, is either the strongest or second strongest in existence • Vegeta finishes with the most eliminations, potentially the most outstanding fighter • Freeza is the last man standing for...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Oh my god, I love this ending. It does make sense though from an out-of-universe perspective. If Freeza wasn't going to play a *massive* part in this, he wouldn't have been brought back. I hope he's brought back to life as Goku promised, since the story is much richer when open-ended. Jiren also is ...

Re: As Freeza remains in the shadows, my theory on Super's "unexpected" ending

I don't know what'll happen, but I'm fine with any result as long as it's not Freeza going back to hell like nothing happened. Him getting a wish and causing chaos, him trying to revolt and getting erased from existence, and him being brought back to life and existing as an anti-hero somewhere in th...

Re: Does it feel weird/funny that Super only has 2 episodes left?

I think a big part of why it doesn't feel weird for many is because there's a movie coming out later this year. The expectation seems to be, that the movie will have the normal cast after the ToP at some point, acting as the planet Sadala arc that has been kind of at hinted at since the U6 arc. Peop...

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

How many volumes do you guys think the manga will be in the end? Assuming it concludes with TOP + epilogue (I assume any additional material would be under a different title, unless the movie is part of the 'Super' branding).

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

You know, prior to the release of Toriyama's designs, I thought that Ultra Instinct in the manga would be more of a technique, rather than a transformation. I mean hell, we see Beerus using it. Maybe the white/grey hair is just a matter of mastering it? I don't know what Beerus would look like since...
