We still don't know that for sure. It could be either, but I'm leaning on them being siblings.
If they were, surely Renso would have mentioned sisters when he told Cabba to recruit Caulifla, but he doesn't. And Cabba knows Caulifla and Renso but he doesn't seem familiar with Kale until they're introduced.

Either way, still neutral about these two. I just want the Uni 6 saiyan trio to get Vegeta and Gokû to Planet Salad in a later arc.
I just want Frieza to go and blow Planet Sadal up so we don't have to go there . :lol:
We were stuck on Planet Piccolo in Z, it's only fair the Saiyans get a turn if they want to go there.

I'm still pissed that Cabba, and Hit got knocked out before them. Also pissed that Frieza out-manipulated the guy who was supposed to be the more manipulative version of Frieza. And never forget Bota-Magetta, the wasted team-up. Seriously the original 6 universe 6 fighters were shafted.

There's little to support that I'm afraid. Caulifla would've definitely said something more specific up until now, not to mention Cabba already knew of Caulifla because she was Renso's sister, but I don't recall him knowing about Kale. It doesn't add up too well for now.

Whether people liked it or not, it was pretty obvious Caulifla and Kale were getting a bigger push than the others of their team this saga.

What reason do you have for why they should have no idea about it?
Pretty much by all definitions of logic and rationality?

That's how?

Please, do tell, how Kale or Caulifla would know about the fusion technique? I'm sure you can think of plenty.

Learned it before the tournament as a secret weapon since Cali and Kale are so in-sync that they quickly mastered the Fusion Dance. Or it could be something like the fusion from the 2008 where no dance is needed, Cali and Kale can fused using a special technique since they're soul mates. Or maybe the Kais gave them a pair of earrings.

This isn't hard to do. Used some imagination.

If both characters aren't likable on their own why would they fused ? aside form that, they're getting too much time while others are being pushed to the side.

We thought they'd be out more than once but they're still here so that very well could happen again.
Michsi wrote: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.
Bleach's manga sales had been falling for awhile before so it didn't come out of nowhere. DB's sales as of now have been growing so there's nothing to worry about in that regard.
Michsi wrote:The recent rumors about new movies being planned is an odd coincidence.
The talks about a movie are from fans guessing that's what they're doing based on a site being registered which itself might not even be official.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

Planet Piccolo in Universe 6 would be much better then a Planet full of monkeys. Me and Frieza would greatly enjoy the destruction of Planet Sadal.

I call my best friends “bro” or “brother” cause I’m close with them. But by your logic, I guess we’re related and any other explanation is iffy.

This is extremely subjective and you’re really not helping your case. I respect you solely on your love of Piccolo but your hate on anything Saiyan related is not only unnecessary, but it’s getting to the point where you’re trying to project your subjective perspective of them as something objective, and in turn you’re becoming almost like a parody of yourself.

I love that people are automatically assuming the worst case scenario will happen. This is funny to watch, people are just prepared to be disappointed by DBS. Maybe so they'll be able to be surprised if it goes against their expectations?

I was speaking about the how and when these announcements are made. Meaning that the TOP not having been promoted as the final arc isn't definite proof that they 100% won't be ending DBS with it. Just something to keep in mind.
TekTheNinja wrote: Then why exactly do they often call each other "sis"?
I'm not the biggest expert on the subject, but it's not uncommon in Japanese language to refer to someone you look up to as "older brother/sister", specifically in a gang like environment. Case in point, you only hear Kale use "sis" when referring to Caulifla, but not the other way around.
Also, as someone has already mentioned, gang members call their female leader "Big sister."

The production crew, Toriyama and Bandai are not interested in using those characters. Goten and Trunks are not fighters, they dick around too much. If this bothers you, go make a doujinshi.
If I needed definitive proof of is, I suppose this would be it.

It's been happening all along anyway, but this tournament has accelerated and exacerbated it. All the things that make Goten and Trunks halfway relevant or special are being given away to new characters. Super friendship. Ultra prodigy power. Fusion. I'm not saying that those things should be exclusive to them, but letting the girls do these things instead certainly cuts into any reason the staff may eventually have had to go back to the kids.

In a way, I suppose they were on track to be shafted the moment the universe became a multiverse. A smaller narrative means that we would need to rely on everyone for this or that at some point, including Goten and Trunks; a larger one means that they can be dumped.

I can't even be salty; I'm just really sad. It's like a part of me just died.

Even as just a lurker, I know to ignore that guy. namekiansaiyan is constantly negative, complaining, and whining. Sit back and relax and wait for the DBSuper writers to screw over all the namekians so he can rage and tell us how he won't watch anymore. It's always a hoot.

As for the possible fusion, I guess Goku could try showing them in the middle of the ToP... but that just seems ludicrous. We shall see.

It's like I said before. I can see why people wouldn't like this idea as if you don't like Caulifla and Kale you likely don't want to see more of them. But the raging out and massive assumptions based on just a provisional title is really what baffles me.

Boo Machine wrote:Fusion of the Saiyan chicks. Alright then. Let's see where this goes. There isn't really much for me to say about this because there isn't much information besides that it's a thing that's going to happen.

I will address a couple things I've heard from others though.

I'm confused why the fusion is now fan fic territory. What's so fan ficky about using an already established concept in the series? I don't even care about fusion all that much outside of Gotenks, and I understand people want to see new shit, but the concept of fusion is a thing in the dragonball world. Why wouldn't they use it? It's not fan fiction to use things that are apart of the world.

Some people say they shouldn't know what fusion is. Why? Nothing the U6 fighters ever said or did indicated that fusion isn't a thing they were not aware of. At the very worst Goku just teaches it to them and they learn it in 10 seconds.

It almost seems Caulifla and Kale can't so much as move an inch without igniting rage around here.
This is literally how people should be reacting towards this especially regarding the fusion concept.
Zamasu is the best DB villain besides Freeza (and this is only the case because the current Super arc elevated Freeza to be that good).
