I really hope the manga can find away around them.

At least we don't have to hear him go on and on all the time. I wasn't very happy about his silent personality but if cauliflower and ribbon are anything to go by then maybe it's best that way.

What does canon have to do with anything ? seriously ? I'm just talking about the basic quality of both and for some unknown reason you bring that into the mix.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

The first 10 blu ray sets contained 12 episodes, but the eleventh(ep 121-133) will have 13. What's odd is that episode 133 is supposed to air on March 25th, the last week of the anime season.

Ofc it could mean nothing, but it is very suspicous.

It probably just means that they have a set number in mind and are beginning to line up the sets to match it. If Super was ending that soon we would've heard about it.

Kai's Buu arc was made for the Western market. Trust me, we're important.
I didn't mean the market isn't important. I meant it shouldn't be assumed that the fandom as a whole is of a certain belief just because some, or even many, fans are.

Not to add fuel to this particular fire, but there have been cases of shows being cancelled out of nowhere. The Bleach anime comes to mind. Remember, Super barely got any promo at all, it was announced just a few weeks before it began airing or something like that. I think it's unlikely, but people should keep an open mind.

If Super is stopping it is because of Toriyama not wanting to do it anymore. This show makes too much money for Toei for them to stop the show.

Not only Bleach, practically al long running series, Hitman, Toriko, DGM all were announced just barely a month and a half before they ended

I doubt it's stopping. Maybe just a break or name change.

Yeah, the terrible writing of this show is making people upset, isn't this so fun?

So we have two terrible characters, that shafted other more interesting characters from the spotlight, that have somehow mastered a technique that they should have no idea about. Yet again, we're getting multiple episodes wasted on them, meanwhile the Namekians have so far done nothing. And we already know they won't get as much screentime as these two have gotten.

I'm not even sure how fans of Kale and Caulifla can be excited for this? This reads like horrible fanfiction. :lol:

At least they're pushing this garbage right now, instead of later, so that we won't have to deal with it down the line. Just get it over with now.

They will not waste time having them learn how to master Fusion. Just like they easily learned how to control SSJ transformations. We don't need unnecessary padding

Right, it's not like in other cases where they telegraph the finale like it's this huge event, it usually comes as a surprise. The recent rumors about new movies being planned is an odd coincidence.
Again, might mean nothing, but it may also mean something.

It would be a shame if they decided to pull the plug on Super just at it was finally picking up steam.

Hell, Heroes will give you a card or 20 whether you exist or not. Vegeks, Gohanks, and Super Kaioken Xeno Vegito will attest to that. Although Heroes doesn't do anything too daring with the new characters, so you won't see anything like Time Breaker Dark Dragon Ball Super Saiyan Rose 4 Goku Black...yet. :lol:

What reason do you have for why they should have no idea about it?

Kale/Caulifla possibly fusing? The awfulness intensifies.
When someone tells you, "Don't present your opinion as fact," what they're actually saying is, "Don't present your opinion with any conviction. Because I don't like your opinion, and I want to be able to dismiss it as easily as possible." Don't fall for it.

While fusion of Kale/caulifla sounds cool and the ultimate salt maker, it sounds a bit too outta nowhere.
Feels over Reals.

This is currently a provisional title, so I'm not even close to convinced this is a thing yet. That said, I feel this is going to go one of two ways if true. Firstly, they already know a form of fusion, in which case it's whatever. Alternatively, Goku teaches them how to fuse in the middle of this tournament. If that's the case, my "fuck you Super" alarm is probably going to go off like crazy. There's demonstrating a transformation, and then there's teaching a technique that requires precision and balance between two people. It would definitely be horribly contrived at best if it occurred.

But, as always, we should wait and see.
"If you notice this and understand that it's flawed and just don't let it bother you, that's perfectly fine. But enjoying a flawed movie and calling a movie flawless are two completely different things."

Vegeta and Goku are stupid... seriously after this tourney Beerus should hakai them.

It’s not even funny anymore.

Hope as soon as the fusion is over Freeza will eliminate the chicks...

Butt stupid Goku may train Cicada next

This fusion won't come out of nowhere. Hit said the U6 Saiyans are the hope of the team. Cabba said Caulifla and Kale are their secret weapons
They already know fusion. Goku isn't teaching them. They knew fusion the whole time.
