Re: Black Goku Backlash!!?

Basing things on Toriyama's comments about white hair and an alternate universe being combined with what we now know as another Trunks' storyline, I'm willing to speculate that Goku Black is likely an inverted looking Goku more similar to Reverse Flash rather than those Black Goku fanarts online. S...

Re: Black Goku Backlash!!?

Guys, this won't be an African Goku, lol. I mean it's possible, but very unlikely. It isn't "Black Goku" it's "Goku Black." Importance is the emphasis of it being a variant or evil version of Goku rather than a reference to his race. Even if Goku Black has black skin (like a shadow) it's highly unli...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

GT being non-canon implies that Dragonball has a canon, which as far as we know there isn't one outside of fan theories. GT is just as "canon" as anything else in the Dragonball franchise. Canon =/= being in continuity with something.

Re: Do you think the end of Z will be re-written/retconned?

End of Z isn't getting retconned. There may be elements reworked and retconned, but the actual premise behind it is still viably valid if they do Super right and go beyond End of Z. There are still several years of time between it and the current Age in Super that allow things such as Bra's birth an...

Re: Anyone consider or want GT as canon?

"Official Product" and "Canon" don't mean the same thing. Of course, "Canon" as it relates to Dragonball doesn't mean anything in the first place. "Canon" was originally used by the Catholic Church to establish which texts were inspired by the Holy Spirit and which were not. Something you kind of h...

Re: Anyone consider or want GT as canon?

GT is canon. Is it in the same continuity as Super? Probably not. But by all means it is an officially recognized product of the series. It was also not a spinoff or parody series or anything of that sort. It literally continued the syndication of the Dragonball TV series. There wasn't a year long b...

Re: Is Goku a superhero?

No. To me the sole thing that sets superheroes apart from regular heroes isn't their superpowers, but how active they are helping others. In Superman's spare time he saves innocent people, in Goku's spare time he trains to get stronger and doesn't help anyone but himself.

Re: Has anyone here been watching GT and comparing it to Sup

No but I do feel generally Super is better than GT in terms of the health of the franchise overall. To me what we're getting with Battle of Gods, Resurrection F, and Dragonball Super is mostly Toriyama. I mean he didn't outright write all the dialogue nor did he come up with all the concepts and ide...

Re: Super's manga by Toyotarō

You know with people speculating about the Super anime getting passed the manga, what if instead of the Super manga staying on course with being an adaptation it becomes an alternate plotline instead? We've already seen other V-Jump manga like the Yu-Gi-Oh manga series do just this where they would ...

Re: Canon and Dragonball

Just my two cents, but I feel that all works based on the Dragonball characters should be considered canon until such a point where it cannot fit into the greater continuity of the overall story. It I.E. If it fits into the stories preceding and following it without gross discrepancy then it should...

Re: Canon and Dragonball

My big thing with this topic is that the only reason to try and define a canon is if you have some specific objective in mind. What is this canon for ? Only once you've worked that out does it become productive to start labeling things "canon" or otherwise. Too often people approach this topic with...

Canon and Dragonball

So a lot of discussion from the fanbase is constantly being thrown around about what is canon, and what isn't canon. In the fanbase, there is a sense of exclusivity and more often than not at times, the term is grossly misused and misplaced. Let's get this straight for once. There is no canon. As fa...

Duh Beerus and Whis are already going to be Z Fighters likely.

As for anyone else it's hard to say. Maybe a U6 character will join into the fray.

I agree but I wouldn't put the GT special in. It's too contradictory.

Re: Do the first 13 Z films fit into the anime canon?

This is how I see the movies fitting into Dragonball anime canon. Dragonball Movies 1-4 - All of them alternate timelines and retellings. Dragonball Z: These all take place in a singular timeline together, but only some actually connect to the anime. Movie 1 - Takes place before Saiyan arc (Canon) M...
