I feel this episode is the true end to the Saiyan arc, and possibly "season" (though there's supposed to be a break for a while between two seasons). I was wondering if the Saiyan season would end like in the Anime Comics, which I thought was very abrupt for a Season finale (it ends with Vegeta flyi...

As far as Gotenks goes, Toriyama sometimes draws his vest with bluish "shoulder things" too: in several artworks, in some pages of the manga itself (Gotenks flying around Earth), and possibly on Kanzenban covers, but I don't remember well.

Games using the manga colors?

There are a lot of Dragon Ball games I never played. Basically, I played: ON SUPER NES: Super Butoden 1-2-3, Hyper Dimension ON PS2/PS3: Budokai 1-2-3, Sparking (Budokai Tenkaichi) 1-2-3, Burst Limit Replaying Hyper Dimension lately, I was surprised to realize that it uses the manga colors, as oppos...

As several people said, I guess you have to go through Goku's youth to properly introduce someone to the world of Dragon Ball . But to me, it's obviously the manga that has to be used for that part, the TV series should be avoided for the same reason as Z. When arriving to Goku's fatherhood, I guess...

I always liked the way Cell was always interested in Goku's teleportation. It's probably not the case, but that way it seems as if it was always intended for him to learn it, or that it would play a major role in his life (or "death" - though temporary, or hypothetical I should say). Several times, ...

Anyway, does really any character comments on Gohan strength? Gohan says he's gotten stronger from handling the sword, but Goku doubts that it will be enough to defeat Boo. It is first thought to give powers to its users, but then the characters conveniently choose to believe it made Gohan stronger...

If you're interested, from the French tankobon: VEGETA: "Pff, you must be kidding... No way there can be such a guy..." "Is he an alien then?!" GOKU : "No, he's an Earthling." And: GOKU: "But someone else than us or Boo might make it that far." MR. SATAN: "Ha ha ha, of course they can't! No way!"

It remains to be checked, but it might be their publishing schedule.

Yeah, I've thought of that, but the resolution I've been doing the pages at really is enough for someone who wants to just read the chapters. And what do you mean about limited to thirty days? Well it's a trial, so I can use it for 30 days only. Then, I have to buy the program. The thing is that I ...

Another point you can discuss is that Freezer does state to Vegeta that he fought with the King, saying he didn't have to transform to defeat it, to what Vegeta replies that he was stronger than his father himself at the time. There are several possibilities. Maybe Freezer was just bragging about. M...

SSj_Rambo, that program you use is awesome.

You know, it's common things that the creators of a story have to suit the will of their "superiors", the same goes for TV series for example: if the channel says "no, you can't do that, it's too much" or "rewrite that part, it's too complicated for the audience" or "it would be better if that chara...

Akira Toriyama's comments on Dragon Ball

I always like to have the creator's thoughts about his own universe, characters, how he felt about them, what he liked, what he regretted and all. I like audio comments, and other sorts of comments as well, on a work. Unfortunately, it may be only me, but I find it hard to have much interviews and r...

They made Gogeta into a retarded pile of dumb. Gotenks would've been even worse. It's true that I was surprised and disappointed at the new Gogeta.

It's too bad they didn't show adult Gotenks, to see how he's evolved with Trunks and Goten who have now grown up. It was a unnecessary tease to bring an idea that everyone would be curious to see, it was a moment to make Goten and Trunks shine again for some moments and then "no, no, now that we mad...

I don't know what it says but it makes sense that he gets back home with the blueprints for the remote control, as it is THE way to get rid of them when you're not strong enough.
