The Namekian Book of Legends sounds like it could've been a great Indiana Jones-type side-story arc for Piccolo and Gohan. It would've been fun; I hope it does come into play.

So we're going to go the entire F arc without any Yamamuro, that's a shame. The lack of a Tate episode during the entirety of the combat part of the arc is also super weird.
Considering he just recently did the movie he's probably burnt out on it, unsurprisingly. It is a shame his episode on BoG arc was probably one of the best episodes.
Yamamuro is busy being the character designer, they don't always work on episodes themselves. He had the same role in Disk Wars: Avengers but never got do do any episode.

It probably will if Toriyama was the one who came up with it.

It is a pretty random thing to say and not further develop later on. I'll be shocked if they don't.

So does the 2016 near the picture of Dragon Ball Super mean it's being released in Korea this year? Quick, someone call in the Korean translation team!

So we've got the firm announcement for Super coming to Toonami Asia, and the possibility that it's coming to Korea (if that's what the picture is saying)...it's still frankly shocking that it hasn't spread to more countries yet. It's been six months since the series started, yet still no word about it being released in many huge markets around the world. What is Toei doing?!

I'm almost certain I already mentioned pages and pages and pages ago that Super was scheduled to be aired in Korea during 2016 after ScholarGohan sent me a link of a report from some event (I think it was for toys and merch, and they only discuss said merch for upcoming licenses). It just got lost in the void because that's not a location most people on this forum would care about it airing...and this thread can move really fast at times.

Maybe Piccolo will find away to become stronger again. Dragon Ball NA already did a similar thing with Piccolo and the Book of Namek.

This is what Super should look like :

It's sad to see that fans who work for fun are able to do a better job then a multi-million dollar company.

It's looks decent. But nothing really to boast about as being superior to everything Super has produced. Despite what people think, Super have produced really good cuts.

Yes comparing a 2min video that the fans took God knows how long to make vs Super that's an entire episode :roll:

Stuff like this annoys me because Super has good shots but people on fixate on the bad

Not to mention it looks worse than anything in Super (bar episode 5).

There's no excuse in the world that can justify Super's quality now.

Why are you ignoring the good shots of Super? Do you need me to post them for you?

The fact your posting a 2 min video as if that proves your point is laughable.That 2 min video took months to make give Toei the same time and they'll do the same because if you didn't know Super doesn't get months to work on hence why it looks why it does at times

The fact there's a Movie version with much higher quality is a good one.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

I hope that's why cause that'll mean they'll do more with the next arc.

No they wont, they dont have 4 months to create a 2 min segment. They have to get full episodes out weekly while doing dozens of other series at the same time.

Then some of those shows should be put on hold.

Stopping it's production until they're either done with something more important like Super or when they're able to make it without sacrificing another show's quality.
