Re: Super Dragon Ball Heroes (Manga) Discussion Thread

I've always been curious about how much freedom Nagayama has to deviate from the game's plots with his manga. For example, during Prison Planet he decided to cut Cumber's tail something that didn't happen neither in the anime nor the game. Since he later had to give Cumber a tail made of evil ki an...

DB /first half of the manga: Goku vs. Piccolo Jr. Z /second half of the manga: Gotenks vs. Boo/Goku vs. Freeza (but only in the manga, for that second one) GT : ...Goku/Vegeta/everyone vs. Yi Xing Long, I guess? Goku vs. Super #17 is the most fun visually, though. Super : Goku/Freeza/#17 vs. Jiren ...

Re: "SDBH: World Mission" Official Discussion Thread

There are some card abilities and robot modules that give a character a chance of reviving after dying; it's how I got through that Beerus annihilation by mere accident. Unfortunately I can't remember which specific card(s) had this ability. Indeed. Always keep modules that either guarantee or grea...

I asked zero mods about this, but I put so much effort into it they can't lock it.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes (Manga) Discussion Thread

I'm making the bold choice to pull this out of the ongoing greater Super Dragon Ball Heroes thread, since it involves a piece of self-contained spin-off media I think deserves its own discussion. I'd also like a more focused spot on the forums for myself and other fans to offer translations and summ...

Re: Was DB:Evolution one of reasons Mai got bigger role in Super?

Feels more like something born coincidentally out of the Pilaf gang's role in Battle of Gods, and Toriyama just continuing to run with the gags he wrote for her and Trunks in that film.

How far is everyone in Arcade Mode and how are you playing it? Just finished getting the Ultra Clear on the Bardock God Boss. My goal while playing is to get both Ultra Clears and Legendary Clears if possible, and use no cards beyond the set of the campaign. Since the bosses were designed for a form...

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

So there is no recognition of Xeno Gohan seeing Pan? That would probably serve as an indication as to where Xeno Gohan comes from. But if there's nothing about it, it may seem like he's the only one who do not come from (a point after) Dragon Ball GT. He recognizes her and calls her by name as she ...

Re: Is Dragon Ball cynical at its core?

Ayn Rand wasn't a cynic. Just felt that needed to be said. No indeed. I usually just build that in there to avoid implying that it's building up rugged, selfish individualism against the ills of collectivism in the way she does, which is what the argument that it's optimistic about its mostly selfi...

Re: Is Dragon Ball cynical at its core?

Dragon Ball , like most Toriyama stories, is cynical about the systems of the world--the Boo arc opens on narration about more and more people getting up to no good as they became too use to peace, because "that's just the kind of beings humans are"; Mr. Satan sells the world a continuous lie; the ...

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

This reads like fanfiction. When Toriyama writes Dragonball, he introduces a bunch of new shit, paying no reverence to the established lore. He, of course, tries to tie things in so that it makes sense, but he brings in new ideas. This is all really self-referential stuff with nothing new. Remember...

Found the chapter fun. Maybe even more than last month's action-heavy one, despite some misgivings. Art-wise, the paneling has indeed gotten better recently, though there's the usual lowering of heads when it becomes obvious there'd be no other way to get both head and body into Toyotaro's chosen fr...

Re: Is manga Kale and Kefla's hair supposed to be green?

Doesn't Freeza wonder if Kale's showing yet another variation of Super Saiyan in the manga? (I can't recall the exact line off the top of my head.) I thought that was indication that there was something visually different about her--presumably the green hair.
