Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I've long since made my peace with the possibility of the Abridged series ending with the Cell saga. It's been a hilarious ride but all too often do good things come to an end too soon, BUT I've just seen this picture and I need a TFS take on it: [spoiler] http://i.4cdn.org/a/1536610831331.jpg [/spo...

Re: Regarding the Goku vs Cell fight in DBZ...

From a purely action/choreography standpoint the manga version of this fight is actually rather dull imo Now the anime version on the other hand: https://78.media.tumblr.com/311f1b1552793eb9c6304cb2cfd0bae9/tumblr_o3pftj7VRN1uuj1vto1_500.gif Easily one of my favourite fights in the entire franchise

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Sometimes I think back to the poor animation of DBS pre Black Arc and can't help but think about what a fucking disgrace and insult that was to fans especially long time fans of the Dragon Ball series. That one of the most influential anime to ever exist gets a sequel series after decades and for th...

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

Watching the latest Abridged episode made me realize that DB used to pull shit like this all the time for dramatic effect. 16 could hold Perfect Cell, who should already be leagues above him in physical strength. Worse, his bomb could apparently kill Cell off too. Really? All it took was a mad scie...

I think Toyo peaked with MSSJB Goku vs F. Zamasu

It's a shame because I was really had somewhat high expectations for how he was going to portray the ToP

But right now I have zero confidence in him.

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

I can't believe most of Gohan v Kefla was fucking off panel! I heard it mentioned when the chapter was being leaked but I didn't think it was this bad. Yup and more character assassination for Goku so he can 'grow' again... to think that at one point Goku had no kanji/symbols on his gi as he had sur...

Do you think that an upcoming DBS guidebook or any supplementary material would ever reveal how much the weights Goku and Vegeta were using when they trained with Whis were?

Re: Dragon Ball Super's power levels are much lower than GT

I think it’s worth to point that highly dense energy was generated by Beerus’ and Goku’s third clashing. What Beerus did may count as a “nullifying a supposedly universe-crushing energy” feat. Whis also notes that Gods don’t know everything, so they were probably just guessing those clashes could w...

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

A pretty disappointing chapter. Why didn't Toppo casually one shot SSJ2 Goku? The anime did a way better job with Goku and Hit fighting together and Hit vs Jiren He was literally slaughtering him until Goku went Blue and broke free. Hardly. He should've been able to casually one shot him and leave ...

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

First of all Goku and Hit didn't fight together vs one common opponent in the anime. Goku fought Dyspo and then Took Kunshee while Hit at first took Kunshee and then switched to Dyspo, they never went 2 vs 1 on anyone. They still had each other's backs and had a somewhat similar dynamic to this man...

A pretty disappointing chapter. The fight scenes were quite boring. Couldn't Goku decide to "push himself" when the universe isn't at stake?

Re: Dragon Ball Super's power levels are much lower than GT

Super and GT clearly aren't in the same continuity.

No one in GT can one shot a universe with pure power alone or come anywhere remotely close.

BoG saga SSJG Goku would solo GT with ease.

Re: i'm not pissed about super's powerlevels

DBS Power level problems ruined the narrative of 2 of its 4 arcs. Firstly is the Battle of Gods arc, where it turns out Beerus wasn't using 70% of his power to beat SSJG Goku, it was more like 0.7% as SSB KK X 10 Goku is still weaker than Beerus and according to the manga only SSJB Vegito is Beerus ...
