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

I hope that Toppo and Dyspo make it deep into the tournament. It's a bit unclear where each stands in the strength hierarchy, and for as much as Universe 11 has been hyped up, each probably deserves at second proper fight (they've had one each so far, Toppo in the exhibition match, and Dyspo against...

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

I wonder if there's a real chance the tournament itself begins by the end of the chapter? I've come to terms with the likelihood that the recruitment stuff likely being scrapped, but I think at least one more chapter (preferably two) of build-up/hype would work well. Especially more of the mastery o...

Re: How many more arcs do you think there'll be?

I'm hoping that either there will be more arcs before EOZ, or if we do skip ahead of EOZ, that Goku/Vegeta will still be the leads. Don't have a ton of interest in the passing of the torch stuff. At any rate, I do expect the 28th TB to be rewritten/reanimated. The core stuff (Goku meeting Uub) will ...

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

I'm inclined to say yes because absorbing the Genki Dama seems to be a nod to what Goku did as a Super Saiyan God in his fight against Beerus. ...although, that wasn't depicted in Toyotaro's telling of Battle of Gods. Then again, neither was Beerus mentioning a person stronger than Goku (until it w...

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

The language for 114 (birth of a new super warrior) seems to imply there's going to be a fusion of some sort. Between Caulifla/Kale? Or the two Namekians? Or the Universe 4 bugs perhaps?

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

I doubt half of what was in the anime will be there. We’ve already seen Beerus use the move without thinking technique in the manga and it doesn’t grant him a new form or aura, it’s a legitimate mastery of the technique and I think the manga will follow suit with it being less special and ordinary ...

Re: Why was the Genki Dama able to defeat Kid Buu?

I always thought it was just strong enough to vaporize him in one go--something no one else had done up to that point. (Though Gotenks, Gohan, and certainly Vegetto may have been strong enough to.) This is backed up, I think, by Goku suggesting he may have been able to defeat Boo in their first fig...

Why was the Genki Dama able to defeat Kid Buu?

So I've been rethinking this recently, and the progression of the perception of what it takes to totally defeat Buu is interesting. We first see Buu regenerate from brutal blows. Vegeta then decides he needs to vaporize Buu to kill him. No dice. Buus bits come together to reform him. Piccolo went ba...

Re: Super Episode 109-110 (8 October 2017)

Aside from how long it took for the servers of the streaming services to get in order, I think the two episodes were pretty exciting. Some thoughts: • I liked how it was observed by Beerus/Whis that Goku was using KKx20 already against Jiren. Nice flashback to the Freeza fight (when he was using KKx...

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

Some questions/thoughts: 1) What are you guys expecting this next chapter? Conclusion of the fight presumably. What else? 2) The recruitment arc felt kind of filler-y* in the anime, or at least more so than the exhibition match. At the very least though, I'd like to think we'd get to see Goku recrui...

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

I really like what this change is setting up to be. It appears it's not another Super Saiyan variant or a transformation at all, and it doesn't seem like it was a matter of absorbing the Genki Dama or ki from someone else. Seems like good writing, as it's the culmination of foreshadowing from way ba...

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

Crackpot theory: That line from one of the pieces of promotional art we saw about the time of the gods being over or something was very curious. I wonder if Goku will reach his new form by literally using up every bit of god ki in his body? Though I don't know if that would qualify as something terr...

Re: Ranking the original 10 arcs.

Ugh. Just wrote out a ton, but lost my content. Should've saved a draft, or written it in another app. Well, I'll put my grades I guess. Criteria for me (not all weighted equally): (1) Quality of writing. If plot-points and character development are coherent, and there is a logical progression, prov...

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

The anime seemed to be moving away from KK as a plot point How if Goku abused it during the recruitment arc and the Zen Exhibition? If anything, it was setting up for him to use a higher level of Kaioken from the start. We hadn't seen it at all during the ToP though, when during nearly every other ...

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

I don't think we will and I hope Kaioken never sees the light of day in the manga. Mastered Super Saiyan Blue > Kaioken Blue. The point in the story is to control one's ki from leaking. Hoping you guys are right. The anime seemed to be moving away from KK as a plot point, but from the latest spoile...

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

Do you guys think we'll see Blue + kaioken in the ToP arc of the manga? Goku did use it in the Zeno exhibition match, and vs Gohan briefly in the recruiting stuff, though he has not yet in the actual ToP, so could go either way.

Re: Do you think DBS is a worthy continuation of DB and DBZ?

I would say so. There is a bit of a different feel though. Arcs seem to be structured a bit differently. I believe Toriyama was writing by the seat of his pants during the original serialization. The result was (beginning with the tone change in the original DB), four very large mega arcs in which t...

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

Fun chapter. Liked the slice of life stuff with Goku, and it was cool to see where Vegeta (& by extension Goku) stands relative to Beerus. I'm beating a dead horse I know, but I really do wonder what the RoF arc would look like if Toyotaro handled it. Hopefully we get a flashback to the Golden Freez...
