Based on what we have right now, Caulifla is the smug punk we saw last episode and Kale is the timid hulk in the opening.

Kale is the female ssj from the opening while cauli is the new female saiyan on the team so we're getting two female saiyans.

This is just getting confusing.

[spoiler]This indicates the same Saiyan as the opening, based on Herms' tweet

So what gives?

Toei are definitely getting what they want; people are definitely talking about the product. This is good.

To be fair, in the tweet directly below that one, Herms says that's his take on the matter and that he could be wrong.

True. I guess it does raise the question as to what other species we'll see in Universe 6. A Namekian would be great, to be honest. Adds an extra layer into Piccolo's conflicts.

The scan never implied or suggested Cauliflowa and Fem-Broli are one in the same, that's just what Herms thought it was implying due to the juxtaposition of the visuals in that scan. Him and Geekdom were both deadset on them being the same character regardless.

Yes, they did. It said she already appeared in the opening.

It onyl says that a "female Saiyan has already appeared in the opening" it doesn't specify that the one pictured is the same as the one from the opening.

I wouldn't have an issue with it. Buu technically has shown his stuff more recently than Yamcha.

Plus the below drawing by Toyble shows that Yamcha can look like a total badass in his current look in the current style.

I'm all for it. I wouldn't even be mad.

I see no problem with the show throwing curveballs and subverting audience expectations, if the show always played in a very straight manner it would end up boring at one point.
Lore is NOT story, and it never was, and you should stop spreading this nonsense.
Content is NOT substance.
Bunch of characters doing stuff do NOT make an esemble cast.
Secondary characters are secondary, they do NOT deserve or are entitled to having more screen time.
Fandom Lacks Critical Thinking and is Easily Impressionable with Surface Level Content.

Same. Boo got his time to shine in the exhibition match meanwhile Yamcha hasn't contributed to a single fight thus far so I wouldn't get all bent out of shape about the change, plus I would love to see the Rogafufu-Ken return.

And who wouldnt like Yamcha to fase Basil or Lavenda? Wolf vs Wolf matchups, maybe it helps Yamcha unlock some unknown power :D

Hell no buu shouldn't be replaced at all. What does Yamaha offers despite being the fandom punching bag
While buu offers more variety especially with his fight with basil.
Just have yamcha be an extra team member and everyone's happy.

If this happens, I'd want TOEI to change the OP accordingly. Specifically that Yamcha would be attacking Bergamo in the OP with his Wolf Fang Fist. PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN, TOEI!

So now we may get two female saiyans? Kale the timid from the opening and Caulifla the savage from last episode?

My god, following DB nowadays is a total experience, apart from watching it I mean. This is crazy, I don't know what to expect anymore and that's good. Yamcha yes or no? Two or one female saiyans? Who is Popo? My god..

So cauliflowa is not the broly clone..
Weird they named her that then..

Kale sounds fun, now that should be the end of Saiyans on the team..

They better not pull Yamcha death pose vs suicide bomber again, that meme is terrible

I can see why people wouldn't mind Boo getting replaced, but to have the guy get shafted in a tournament yet again is just plain cruel.
