Re: What really happened to GT?

Just to name an example. The Slam Dunk anime never adapted the last arc (It was "canceled"). We're talking here about a GIGANTIC manga, with incredible sales. I looked it up and it seems to be that the anime wasn't cancelled due to poor ratings or anything, but due to an argument between Inoue (Auth...

Re: What really happened to GT?

I think you underestimate DB... Naruto hasn't stopped since '98 and Boruto is going strong. Same with One Piece. Same with Pokemon...
With that said, I don't know about Japan, but in Europe -Spain & France specifically- and South America, DB has never slowed down. Sure, there's up and downs, but yeah.

Re: What really happened to GT?

Wrath of the Dragon was also the lowest grossing Dragon Ball Z movie at the box office as well. By a significant amount. What about Path to Power? You posted this btw: Fusion Reborn - ¥1.98 billion ($22.7 million) Wrath of the Dragon - ¥1.1 billion ($12.2 million) Fusion came out March 95, and Wrat...

Re: What really happened to GT?

But Super doesn't have a manga to follow, how do we explain that? Sure, there's a manga, of things we already saw in the anime. And how can we say that when around that time Pokemon, Digimon, Medabots and many other successful series that came out at the time had no manga. Sure they were based off o...

Re: What really happened to GT?

Could be, but merely 5 years later they released Dragon Ball Z for PS2 ( Budokai 1) which sold like crazy, and a few years later the Dragon Boxes. For the past 12 years(?) maybe more, Dragon Ball has been bigger than One Piece or any other Anime/Manga franchise for that matter, worldwide that is. So...

What really happened to GT?

Hello! In another forum we are having a discussion on GT & Super, due to the new series being announced. Someone made a comment about Super being super ( 8) ) successful, and that's why a new series had to be made. Which, of course had to happen. Personally, I dislike Super. And GT too! But as we we...

Re: Episode #0433 (28 January 2018)

Hey Mike, do you happen to have a link for the Deen album with Hitori Janai in Bossa Nova? Or the name of the album.

Would really appreciate it! I can't find anything on it except for the song on youtube.

The Dabura take was great! It was intense, that's how Dragon Ball should be.

Anime/Manga Subtle Changes

So in an effort to bring our universe's level up, I wanted to create a fun thread. I am currently rewatching the whole series, starting with Dragon Ball, of course. As I continued through me fun journey, I started noticing things that were changed in the anime, for whatever reason. Now, I'm not talk...

Dragon Ball Z 111 - Vegeta's Space Scene

Recently I rewatched the Garlic Jr. Saga, and came upon the scene where Vegeta senses a Ki in space and flies towards it, etc, etc.

More than likely this has been discussed before, but I can't find the topic(s). So, what do people think about this? Do you have any particular speculation?

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

It doesn't work like that. Being a manga artist is not a "normal" job. These people barely get any sleep at all. You're saying it yourself, you don't how it works.
