It's great to see Dragon Ball doing so well! Hopefully that continues for years to come.

Speaking of Money and Frieza, I finally sat down and watched One Piece Gold today...go I wish I liked in Japan. Seeing those two back to back would have been awesome.

I think I'll make it part of my Frieza marathon I''ll do for E93, it feels like a sister movie.

I don't get it what is so special about this Gundam to be Top #1?

Gundam model kits are massively popular in Japan.

So glad to see Super making so much money. I'm not sure if I'd want Super to continue on too much longer (Unless they plan on going past the end of Z), but if they did I wouldn't complain. Maybe end Super and just put out a few more movies instead?

As far as Freeza returning, I'm hyped. I don't think only revealing so many members from the beginning and having the final be a mystery would be such a good idea. People would have speculated and Freeza would have ended up being a possibility in fans' eyes a long time ago. At least this way, it's completely out of left field and the entire base is shocked. Angry or not, it stirs up a lot of reactions. I definitely would have liked Buu to participate, but I'm excited to see how Freeza plays out/interacts with everyone on a team and the other multiverse fighters.

At least Buu got that exhibition match, that was really fun.

I'm actually a little salty that they're making that much thanks to a product that leaves too much to be desired. It is what it is, anyways!

Because fans prefer the fanservice, Black, Trunks really helped improving the sales and now we will get LSSJ Kale, Gohan being God-Tier, Jiren, Freeza, Goku and his new transformation.

Toei will stick to the same formula as long as it keeps giving them the cash.

So their reducing the Dragon Ball Franchise to a toyetic show like Digimon. Don't like that at all, it can even more money with a intriguing well executed story. Because good story's sell.

I think it'll go the Digimon route the moment they start switching up the protagonist, it'd be an improvement over what we have now. At the moment, it's more-so stuck in a Pokemon stage.

I'd say this is probably why I'm losing interest in Super, but I liked most of the Zamasu arc (I didn't like that awful ending it had though) and I like Precure and that's also super-toyetic.

I guess it ultimately comes down to what types of fanservice do it for you on an individual basis.

The Power Levels in Digimon Tri are far worse than in DBS, like Gabumon able to stop an attack from a Mega Digimon :lol:.

Digimon Tri had better OST and animation though.

I just want to see the Gohan vs Goku sparring match, because of the fandom reaction, most fans would defend Gohan because that was always his thing in the show.

If Gohan forces Goku to use Kaioken then the episode reaction will be like Episode 66.

The power levels don't bother me; I just miss having a proper antagonist (probably because I'm used to having them from Z) and I miss competitive, hot-blooded rival Vegeta (again, used to it from Z). Everything else this arc I can take or leave.

If this arc doesn't end up having one (I'm not so sure it won't) we'll probably get one next arc.

I hope so. The antagonists were some of my favorite parts of Z.

Then you really hate DB, because Vegeta did not appear, and it had 3 tournament, I'm being patient, maybe the next arc Will have another cool antagonist​ that is not Boring as the one in z,no regeneration please,act like a b*tch or I'm doing this for the evulz,he better be charistmatic, have a motivation and cool like Black, because we need a cool villain like him again.

I don't hate the original; I like the original DB. I didn't miss Vegeta in the original because he didn't exist yet. I can miss him in Super because he does exist there. I'm not looking forward to the tournament not because it's a tournament, but because we've only had 3 not-movie, TV-series-exclusive arcs and 2 of them are tournaments (maybe I'll look kinder on this arc once we've gotten through another three or four arcs and hopefully have more variety in terms of plotlines). The 23rd Tournament is my favorite arc of the original Dragon Ball. Gokû and Piccolo Jr's battle is incredibly fun to read.

It is an institution in itself. It popularized the mecha genre and made Bandai a billion dollar company. It's influence out does every other series. Yeah, Gundam is in a league of its own.

As for Dragon Ball, while it is great and all that it is doing so well, but fuck I don't want it to go on forever. The direction in which it is going though, I can already see it becoming like the PreCure franchise or as someone mentioned like Pokemon except with a terrible character designer. But, oh well that's not changing.

So, I guess whoever wanted lifetime Dragon Ball content is going to get it.
