It all comes down to character and writing, just because Goku isn't the main character doesn't mean it will be cliche shonen. Some of my favorite parts of DB are when Goku isn't there.
Besides, Goku doesn't have to be taken out of the picture to have a focus on the next generation.
It would only work if it's like Duck Tales with Goku being like Scrooge, imo.
But they've already setup the scenario perfectly, They gave Future Trunks a crappy unsatisfying ending. It's the perfect opportunity to make a "time patrol" spin off. It's perfect because Trunks could travel to any point in time in any universe. It gives Future Trunks and Mai something to do other than exist and I doubt it's a coincidence they survived as a team.
Wow, focusing on time travel nonsense. Thanks for that. I previously couldn't imagine how DB without Goku could get worse.

"That's not true. I visited you five years ago."


"If we didn't drop in on you" actually implies they've seen him more recently than that.
Actually, I never thought it that way, but it changes a bit. It's been about five years since Goku visited them, doesn't mean they haven't seen each other in other circumstances.

About the 13 episode box. It doesn't have to mean the end of Super. If there is a new arc, it would be odd to have this one last US episode separated. I think.
Heno heno kappa!

Yeah basically a dragon ball without Goku isnt Dragon Ball, he is too iconic to be replaced as the main character, even Toriyama who likes to troll people out of their expectations couldnt resist the urge to bring back Goku as it didnt feel right (or so as he said Gohan doesnt fit the bill) I've watched a lot of anime back when DB aired and no one was as charismatic,lovable and memorable as Goku was (even now as I continue my journey in watching every anime that the season pops out 8) )

Though if a new show really happens that would be their chance to actually make it look really good, so better designs, better shading, better colors and backgrounds like in the 2008 special.
Didn't like the color of that special, especially Goku's skin tone.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.

Well, in the official German version Goku' s line is something like " Hey, last time we've met was five years ago." Doesn't seem to be about who usually visits who. Unless the original really does imply something else.

Majikayo in Japanese is slang for "Really?"

Welp, guess I was wrong, the Survivor is clearly Gohan, nobody else fits Goku's description in that second verse.

Gohan is not winning this by himself as that what just be a huge insult to all the characters that train and like to fight. He can't just train for a day and win it by himself.

Wouldn't be the first time.

Plus, Gohan trained off and on since Resurrection 'F'.

you are talking about DBS aka the same series that had Trunks reach hakaishin level and 2 shot Merged Zamasu in his Genkidama mode.

I kind of expected this. Again, assuming Jiren is the mortal who is stronger than a God of Destruction (which I believe is obvious), then Goku being able to exchange blows with him would put him on such a high level.

Jesus. He did not. Merged Zamasu was fallen apart and weakened and Trunks needed the power of others to strike the blow.

I think it became more obvious when MSSJB Vegeta forced Beerus to fight seriously in the manga, and MSSJB wont be able to do jack to Jiren in the manga(for the looks of it), which is why Goku will have a new form, it should put him at least Hakaishin level...

Merged Zamasu said that the final kamehameha didnt do anything, while when Trunks pierced him he said "What is this power?". Yes I know that he needed help to reach the genkidama mode, and it was only a temporary form.

In the manga was a similar thing but with Goku, Goku should be capable of hakaing Vegetto because he was close to deleting Merged Zamasu
