Re: Ultra Instinct "Omen"

Isn't the "Omen" thing only referred to in that Dokkan Battle thing? No where else seemed to use it just "Ultra Instinct". There's almost certainly going to be a "mastered" version of it at some point. Here Goku was basically running on adrenaline. Considering he was gaining on Jiren toward the end...

Re: Why was the Spirit Bomb so powerful?

This feels like a bit of Occam's Razor situation to me. Either the power of the Spirit Bomb increases with the power of the people who gave energy, increases with Goku's own power or both. I think that makes the most sense, since it would explain why the Spirit Bomb remains relevant as a trump card ...

Re: Opinions on Jiren?

The irony of this post as a Broly fan is tremendous hate Broly has gotten for having "no personality" or a terrible character. Despite having a far far more interesting form, power, backstory, connection to the main cast, fighting style, etc etc etc. Anyway the idea that this series needs yet anoth...

There's almost certainly going to be a "mastered" version of it at some point. Here Goku was basically running on adrenaline. Considering he was gaining on Jiren toward the end, give him some energy and time to recover, and round 2 might not seem so insurmountable. Whether it's a transformation or n...

Re: How do you feel about Zeno's "Oooooooh" and "Aaaaaah" during the tournament?

Sometimes they're cute. I liked when they were freaking out over not being able to see Dyspo in 104.

Having it so often in this special was inexcusable though. Once at the start was enough, but after the insert song kicked in, they needed to sit down and stop squawking.

Re: How much longer do you want the TOP to go on for?

As good as the special was and indeed many of the past episodes, it is starting to try my patience. I'm hoping for no more than ten more episodes. There's still a lot to get through, that's the scary part. Most of the major characters, plus a fair few fodder characters are still in (at this point fo...

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

A lot of the hate for her does feel like it's rooted in macho bullshit (how dare they put this girly character in my manly man show!) which isn't constructive. However, it can't be denied that they mishandled her here, which is what's causing these arguments to flare up. Though the animation in her...

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

It seems like there is a lot of controversy over Ribrianne. Personally, while I like her and enjoyed a lot of her first appearances, I think it's safe to say she wasn't used well in these last few episodes. She had no business getting involved with Goku when she still had unfinished business with 1...

Re: goku's new form is still missing something...

I feel like they're building to a mastered version of it. It wouldn't do for this to be the completed form since Jiren still beat it without much effort. But Goku was running on fumes at that point, maybe all he needs is to recover enough to use it at full power and we'll have our endgame. They've u...

Re: Opinions on jiren?

Honestly, I think Jiren works for his intended role. We've never had a character that just doesn't have any elaborate schemes or ambitious goals, or even a major drive to do anything beyond what's necessary, and yet is such a big problem for our heroes. Jiren didn't even bother going after Goku unt...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Amid all the excitement over the special, we also got a dub episode! It was alright. I remember loving that episode at the time it aired, but after 109 & 110 it can't help but feel like a comedown. Still, good voice acting from everyone all around. Good screams from Sabat as Vegeta. We got to hear M...

How much longer will this tournament go for I wonder? We didn't have any knockouts and according to Grand Priest, the clock isn't even halfway down. Admittedly, passage of time in this tournament is utter bullshit, but still. After this, I don't want to go back to the format of the previous episodes...

Re: I find Goku to be the worst character in this show

That bit in the special where he talks about what he'd do with the Super Dragon Balls was REALLY bad. Like, I assumed the reason nobody's actually talked about bringing the universes back with them was because it goes without saying. But Goku "doesn't know what he'd wish for?" Come on man, unless he...

Re: Opinions on jiren?

It's one of those things were I'm not sure if there's something more to him, if he's intentionally bland or just badly written. I think he has potential as a character, and I don't think we've seen or heard the last on him, but for now it's being kept under lock and key. I think they got over-excite...

Re: Mr. Buu’s Voice: English vs. Japanese

Look, it's a bad idea to start tossing around generalisations. Not every dub fan hated Kai. Not every dub fan doesn't care about accuracy. I care about consistency; the indecision about which attack names to use in Kai grinds my gears way more than defaulting to old dub things like Buu's voice, prov...

Yep, the special was amazing. My god I wish we hadn't been spoiled about the next episodes, because the cliffhanger with Freeza was chilling. It's almost certainly a red herring though. Freeza wasn't in this much, but the way he never lost his cool even when seeing what Goku and Jiren could do is am...

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

I wonder, will we get an arc similar to the one with Hit where Goku tries to have a no-holds barred rematch with Jiren? Because Jiren is even more handicapped here than Hit was in the U6 tournament (no flight as well as no killing) and he's still set to stomp Goku's shit in. Also, hiring an assassin...

Re: Mr. Buu’s Voice: English vs. Japanese

Like many of the more divergent Funi dub choices (see King Kai) it's one of those holdovers from a different era of dubbing that they can't really change because people expect it now. Fortunately, unlike say, Linda Young's Frieza (which they did change and rightly so), the approach still fits the ch...
