Re: So how much time has passed since Buu was defeated?

Saw this on Reddit: In the first episode, they mention that 6 months after the defeat of Majin Buu, the Dragon Balls were used to erase the Earth's memories of Fat Buu, so that he could be seen in public. The narrator then goes on to mention "some time has passed since then". How much time is not s...

So how much time has passed since Buu was defeated?

I've seen people say 5-7 years, but nothing really precise. To be honest, it doesn't even feel like that much time has gone by.

Has anyone compiled all the quotes from the Super anime or manga referring to time passing? Would be nice to get a better idea.

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

As happy as I am to see Gohan getting his Ultimate power back, to me he has clearly overstayed his welcome. He isn't as strong as the other characters remaining, and isn't a returning character like Freeza or #17. That isn't to say he needs to job, but he's had enough featured fights, and it would r...

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

We don't know for sure how the Vegeta/Jiren fight will conclude (I don't expect Vegeta to win, but who knows if he gets knocked out, gets swatted aside, ends up fighting someone else, shows some signs of UI, etc), but I think this next episode shows how Toei wrote itself into a hole with kaioken blu...

Re: [Spoilers] Vegeta exit

If Vegeta goes it makes room for Gohan and Freeza and possibly 17 to fight the pride troopers. Vegeta still being around by the end makes one too many characters. There's only 3 pride troopers. Gohan and 17 gotta go. It should be Goku, Vegeta, and Freeza in my opinion. Strongly agreed on Gohan (I t...

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

A bit confused...

Where are people getting that Vegeta will be eliminated, and Gohan will be one of the final characters standing? If it's on the basis of Vegeta being in the title of 122, Gohan is in the preview summary for 121, so it's possible he's eliminated by U3.

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

Somebody in another thread reminded me of something... So in the previous chapter, we saw Toppo activate his 'god ki'. Do you guys think we'll see something similar from the other god-level fighters (Jiren/Hit/Kefla/Freeza, maybe Dyspo and Ribrianne) in the Tournament of Power? Or is it unique to hi...

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

Looks like the four U6 contestants were named right away, followed by Roshi/Tenshinhan/Krillin. Then 18 and shortly after, 17. Seems the focus of the next chapter then will be recruiting 17, Gohan, and potentially Freeza (unless they give Freeza his own chapter?). Other than that, I'm a little surpr...

Re: So idk if there has been a thread on this but manga or anime as canon???

Honestly it's hard to tell. Instead of being the writer here, Toriyama is writing the original outlines, and Toyotaro and Toei adapt it. It seems there is some editorial process with the manga, with Toriyama reviewing Toyotaro's storyboard, making suggestions, and then after a draft is ready, approv...

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

Maybe a silly question, but I just remembered that as for four figures we saw a couple a weeks ago. What are the odds that the fourth "mystery" fighter who only had a generic silhouette ends up being Kafla/Kefla?

Re: In your eyes, what is a satisfying conclusion for Freeza in this arc?

I'm satisfied with any conclusion that keeps Freeza in the story. If he becomes a GoD? Awesome. If he's brought back to life and moves to the edge of the universe to train? That's cool too. Something with his empire coming back? Sure. His latest return has finally given some depth to the character, ...

Re: How would you feel about Vegito in the tournament?

One one side - no, because Jiren doesn't have anybody to fuse with, and it doesn't seem like it would be fair to fight a non-fused opponent. Yes, the universe is on the line, but Goku unlocked UI, and I believe he expects to unlock it (in some capacity) again before the ToP ends. On the other hand -...

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

Why has Toyotaro avoided doing Kaioken? Does he want to be completely original from what the anime has come up with? They borrowed his God switching tactic, so I think using SSB Kaioken should be no issue. I think either: (1) Kaio-ken was never specifically in Toriyama's outlines, and is just a Toe...

Perhaps he doesn't view Goku as somebody he's chasing, but he views him as somebody on the same level: Android Saga - Goku viewed Vegeta as an equal when he came up with the idea to go in the RoSaT originally Post-BoG/Pre-RoF - Goku didn't want Vegeta to get ahead of him, panicked when he found out...

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

I'm hoping Toyotaro decides against the kaio-ken, or Goku attempts to use it, and it fails. In-universe, it makes sense that it's too dangerous to attempt (and there hadn't been any attempt with the standard super saiyan forms), and if Goku tries it in a moment with the universe + afterlife on the ...

Why did Super Buu become Kid Buu after Fat Buu was removed?

I'm sure this has been the topic of discussion before, but from reading around, there doesn't seem to be a consensus in-universe explanation for why both the Skinny Buu and Kid Buu exist. The formation of the evil Skinny Buu makes some sense. There is some precedent for fighters expelling their evil...

I wonder... Perhaps someone has hit on this already in the thread, but is UI the perfect way out of the strength "arms race" and the tons of transformations we have? If the focus from here on out is on perfecting UI (assuming that it still is extremely rare), it could give Goku, Beerus, Vegeta, Free...

Re: How long can ‘Super’ realistically stretch out the 10 year time gap?

It really depends on what is going to happen with EOZ. At this point we know that a complete retcon is off the table (Toyotaro noted that they are all writing with the epilogue in mind), but it's uncertain if it's going to be rewritten (with the core elements intact), or if it will remain, as is (pe...
