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

Please tell me they’re praying to Zalama in this picture. I need the Namekian Book of legends and Zalama to at least be brought up during the time spent on New Namek. https://i.imgur.com/pC5rmjV.jpg Maybe Moro is on Namek to steal the book. They're giving their thanks to the "gods" (神々) in order to...

Re: "SDBH: World Mission" Official Discussion Thread

What the heck is a "blank card"? Your guess is as good as mine. It's not featured in UMX, so it might be something new for World Mission. A card that can be turned into another one? Idk. So, basically... We got companion quests? Great, now I'm gonna spend a fortune grinding Companion Gifts to raise...

Re: "SDBH: World Mission" Official Discussion Thread

Hmm, that's weird. I remember seeing gameplay videos of UMX where people were using custom cards during regular battles. Story Mode lets you equip characters with accessories that can mix and match abilities, so that's probably what you're thinking of. It's one of the things that makes Story Mode e...

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

And everyone involved is interested in keeping things clearly separated and identified, such that video-game continuities don't bleed into manga and anime ones, etc. Huh... Probably might not be in your "translation jurisdiction" for Wiki but that's one of the point of Dragon Ball Online. If such g...

Re: Funimation and swearing

I'm personally of the opinion that they overdo it. Just as it's unnatural to write out all instances of swearing (real people are going to say "hell" and even more colorful things when they're in a pinch), it's equally unnatural to write in as many "damns" and "bastards" as Funimation does.

Really looking forward to the finished Kanzenshuu Wiki. Especially the Dragon Ball Heroes and SDBH sections. Are we finally getting a proper database of information that is sectioned properly by continuities, timelines, and official facts? I can't say exactly how fleshed out the DBH corner will be ...

You might be thinking of Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta and Super Saiyan 3 Broli , which were added to Dragon Battlers pre- Dragon Ball Heroes (alongside Raging Blast 2 , which we also cover in at least one of those news posts). The earliest Heroes new, non-canonical Super Saiyan 3 transformation I can reme...

Do any Heroes historians know what the first non-"canon" transformation added to the card line/arcade game was? Relevant to the in-progress Kanzenshuu Wiki. I want to say it was Super Saiyan Bardock, but I feel like there might have been a game-only Super Saiyan 3 somewhere beforehand. If you know t...

Re: Did Super have to redo Battle of Gods and Ressurection F for their plot?

For what we wound up with--retellings that actually cause more confusion with material to come after than their source movies would have (remember that the Super TV series never even explains why the Pilaf gang are young)--I think it's baffling that this route was chosen over simply re-airing the mo...

Yep, they're out there!

Re: The "Makankōsappō"...How WOULD you localize that?

If I had to give it a translated/localized name, I'm in the camp of "Devil Drill Cannon."

"Demon Spiral Beam" if I'm feeling fancy.

GT has Rilld come back despite having almost the exact same origins as Baby (to say nothing of the oversight of #19), so I'd assume Baby's return was simply hand-waved away to avoid having to deal with the return of the main villain who had just been defeated last arc. Otherwise--robot souls sure a...

So, I just watched the trailer for Universe Mission Set 6 (somehow I'd completely missed it when it came out and thought all those screenshots were just coming from the site), and it's worth clarifying here that it explicitly calls the two "Tsufruians" "artificial lifeforms."
