Pretty sure the girls wouldn't hang out more not because "it's shounen" but because certain powerful men hate women.

Women-hating men make cartoons, too.

Re: Could the natural disaster that threatened Namek be related to Shadow Dragons?

The Namekian Dragon Balls spawning their own Evil Dragons would actually be a cool idea for a storyline, especially if Toriyama wanted to pair it with an explanation for the Namekian Cataclysm. Be a hell of a plot idea for a Piccolo-centric arc, too.

Continuity is dumb, pay it no mind. Everything is it's own canon.

Re: Is anyone else dissapointed that Vegeta doesn’t get a new transformation?

Honestly, I kind of like just sitting on Blue for the time being. I only want the characters to have one transformation at a time myself, so a new transformation would mean retiring Blue. Frankly, I kind of like how Blue has just...not ended. Five years and it's still the 'main form'. I really like ...

Re: Your ideal Dragon Ball sequel.

Frankly, I want to see Yamcha drafted into an alien baseball league and just do a Yamcha-led baseball 'sports anime'. It'd be so off the wall for Dragon Ball.

Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

Series Director Kasai Osamu didn't have much of a vision for the series, so I'm not sure what would have happened. I believe the biggest issue with the Super #17 arc might have been the fact that Series Composition (basically the head writer) Matsui Aya was away on maternity leave. Matsui's last scr...

If Beers does become involved I would only like for it under the condition that he not fight but rather by viewing Vegeta defeat Moro he realizes that Vegeta is getting really close to him and he decides to begin training again. This arc has a lot of issues already and the last thing it needs is Veg...

Trying to copy the reckless abandon with which Toriyama writes is foolhardy. It works for Toriyama because he truly has no shits to give.

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

Another painfully slow chapter. Toyo-tarou isn't a genius, he can't just do nearly 30 pages of one fight that clearly isn't going anywhere, especially after it was made clear that Gokuu wasn't going to win in the previous chapter. I really wish the point of this comic was efficiency and not just dra...

I don't think the inclusion of the Full-Power form was any different from, say, including Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan God.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Yamamuro wanted to make Super Saiyan God have large muscles and a cloak. Toriyama wanted Super Saiyan God to be small and not seem much of a threat. While I like Toriyama's design better that doesn't make Yamamuro's idea invalid. Yamamuro was the one in charge of the character designs, after all, an...

Re: Does there have to be one lead writer for the different media of Super?

The one-writer system doesn't really work. The issue is that it relies on Toriyama or Toyo-tarou developing a story without actually thinking about the context it will be adapted into. Further more, it relies on the idea that Toriyama or Toyo-tarou being the best creator in the room. This is clearly...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Toriyama isn't the animation character designer, director, animation supervisor or even a main key animator for the film. It's not his film, he contributed a script, but scripts don't lead projects, directors and animators do. I am mixed as to whether or not the use of Full-Power Super Saiyan worked...

Dragon Ball is the story of Gokuu, so why not show us a Gokuu who has lived for so long he is outliving his companions, almost like a Doctor Who Gokuu?

Re: Your ideal Dragon Ball sequel.

I wanna see a series set around Gokuu after all his friends and family are dead. He's just 560 years old and meeting new people and fighting new foes, like a soft reboot.
