Re: Super Episode 111 (15 October 2017)

Vegeta has the most eliminations out of anyone. If he went out now, it would be fine. It's embarrassing; we're a day out from the next episode and I've thought of yet another way they could've avoided the "why didn't they just knock Jiren off" plothole: swap the two of them around. Make it so Hit ha...

Re: How would you rate the current arc now? (Episode 111)

The quality of the episodes since the tournament started have been such a line graph it makes it hard to gauge the arc as a whole. In fact, from about 105 onward it almost feels like we've been zig-zagging between good and bad. If you count the special as one episode, it's been good, bad, good, bad,...

Re: What was the point of Frost being evil?

To perpetuate the racist agenda against Frost Demons/Arcosians/whatever. They call them "whiteys" in Universe 6, and a sizeable faction of the population were furious at one being made emperor. The revelation of Frost's corruption bolstered the Conservative party platform, who called a snap election...

Re: How do you define a good dub?

I'm probably in a minority because I place faithfulness to the original script quite low on the priority list compared to other things. The way I see it, it's never been easier to access subtitled versions of shows, whereas dub have become a premium product. So I can get faithfulness for free, but i...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" (PS4/XBO/PC, 2018, Arc System Works) Official Discussion Thread

The story sounds like...nonsense. But delightful nonsense! Like the Yamcha manga but applied to everyone. So I presume each "arc' has a different protagonist with Goku being the main one? The idea of playing as Frieza and teaming with a league of villains sounds great. Add in Budokai 2 map progressi...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" (PS4/XBO/PC, 2018, Arc System Works) Official Discussion Thread

While I expected Ginyu would make it (and I'm so glad they're including Body Swap and Ginyu Force assists), Nappa was one I was less sure about but secretly hoping for. Having him summon Saibamen is a nice touch. I'm surprised they're taking so long to announce adult Gohan. I mean come on, we all kn...

Re: Do you expect a lot of slice of life fillers again after the TOP ends?

I basically want them to go on a visiting tour (or a Grand Tour teehee) of all the other universes. Obviously you've got to have Universe 6 and Sadala; hell, you could get a whole arc out of that alone. But the other ones would be worth a one or two-parter. We can have an equivalent to the Hit mini-...

Re: Super Episode 111 (15 October 2017)

In defence of all this "stronger than time" shenanigans, this is not the first time a character has overriden Hit's Time Skip simply by being stronger. Goku set that precedent way back in episode 39 when he was able to move during Time Skip in Kaioken Blue x10. Yeah we forgave it because it was cool...

Re: For being a parallel to U7, Universe 6 doesn't really have many strong fighters

I disagree, I'd say Universe 6 has a pretty significant leg up on Universe 7, with Universe 7's advantage mainly coming down to the power gap between Goku and Vegeta versus the others. Goku and Vegeta trained with gods, and Hit still has their number. Cabba and Caulifla learned Super Saiyan late, bu...

Re: Super Episode 111 (15 October 2017)

Rewatching the climax of the episode, I've got say it's a hilarious that we have the big tense moment of Jiren breaking out of Hit's cage, underscored by the tense "Master and Student" track (I think that's what it's called; it played during Roshi's Final Kamehameha scene in 105) and it looks...tota...

Re: Starting poses?

When Hit first fights Vegeta in the Universe 6 tournament, Vegeta says something about his fighting stance being "basic". Given Hit's ability, either he never needed to use anything more "advanced" or he does it to make opponents underestimate him. It looks similar a boxing stance. As for Jiren, I t...

Re: Do you think the tournament filled with so many jobbers was a good idea?

More evidence that 'job' should be struck from Dragon Ball Z fans' word of the day calendar. Here's the thing, in a tournament like this not every character can get a heroic send-off like Roshi. In fact, that would be terrible because it would diminish the impact of that moment. The thing is, this t...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

To be honest, I always expected that. Cool as it is to have some Namekians, I feel like the tournament laid it's chips on the table a while back. If you didn't get buildup in the recruitment episodes, or weren't prominent in the intro, you're a sideshow at best. The best we can hope for from them i...

Re: Opinions on Jiren?

The difference in reception to Jiren and Ribrianne is a fascinating thing. On the face of it, Ribrianne is colourful, dynamic, energetic and fun while Jiren is...none of those things. And yet, everyone who watched 109 grimaced through her portion of the fight and perked up once he stepped in. That d...

And looks like the Namekians will be fodder. I'm not even sure if their fusion would be any good either.

Re: Super Episode 111 (15 October 2017)

It wouldn't be too hard to explain why the other Saiyans couldn't ring Jiren out while he was frozen. He was in suspended animation, which means he theoretically couldn't be interacted with by the outside world. Of course having to include that explanation would've undermined Hit's selfless speech t...

Ribrianne, all is forgiven! For too long, this arc has had an issue with people not taking the stakes of universal destruction seriously enough.

The mechanics of absorption is one of those weird things you're probably not supposed to think about.

At least Buu has the excuse of being magical; either 17 and 18 were digested ...

Re: Super Episode 109-110 (8 October 2017)

There's a difference between surviving something and tanking it. My hope is even if he survives that wound and beats Hit, Jiren will be weakened from it. After the special set him up as pretty much invincible, wouldn't it be cool was if the rest of the arc was about the remaining powerful fighters s...
