It was dialog that previously only existed in FUNimation's English dub (and maybe some other dubs), yes. It was not written/spoken that way in the Japanese dialog within Battle of Gods itself.

What is being discussed here is that the Super Start Guide appears to say that Beerus told Freeza to destroy it. This is in opposition to (as noted above) the dialog within Battle of Gods itself, and incidentally happens to line up with what was spoken aloud in the dub.

We have A and B plots it's looking. I like that. I see Bulma's party mentioned there next to Kuririn.

Where are you reading this? In any case, I'm psyched of a Kuririn B plot.

Here, from the previous page. That Kuririn blurb mentions her party and himself. It looks like the This Week In from last time, so that's the conclusion I got. I could be wrong.

Cold Skin wrote: Interestingly, Xenoverse had already taken that road when Beerus and Freezer were meeting on the battlefield:
BEERUS: "Did you destroy planet Vegeta like I told you to?"
FREEZER: "I did it because they were getting on my nerves! I am NOT at your service!!"
That's the best portrayal. Much better than " Yes, I did like you told me, Beerus-senpai".

Even so, there's another problem. Beerus orders Freeza to destroy Planet Vegeta and then wants to fight Super Saiyan God years later?! If Freeza had succeeded in killing all saiyans, there wouldn't be any Super Saiyan God.

These right here get me hyped.
I want to see Vegeta's reaction to this. X3
His position as Gokû's rival has never been threatened before.

If it happens, Vegeta is going to flip because of it. I guarantee it. :lol:

He was already ready to give the stink eye to that bishounen guy at the EoZ tournament before he knew who Gokû was gunning for. I can't imagine how he'll cope if one of the (it's plural, poor Vegeta!) new rivals is bigger taller and conventionally attractive.

He might actually have to temporarily drop his tsundere act and make a move.

Yes! I hope we get to see Cell again, and thank you Herms for your translations.

Not really a problem considering Beerus hadn't had his "prophetic" dream until after he told Freeza that, ergo he had no idea what SSJG was yet.

I would like at one point for Kuririn to call his wife Lazuli, instead of just 18
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.

The questions being:

1. If she even knows her name, or if Gero wiped the twins' memories (which would explain why they never went back to their original families/friends or whatever).

2. If they're going to bring up something exclusively mentioned in an interview not everyone would have read in-series and risk confusing people.

I can't wait to see what they'll do with the Ssjg ritual cause if it still needs 6 saiyans and pan is the 6th then that'll be confirmation that Toriyama will rewrite the story's ending.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

Gregory the bee? Yeah it's him. He wasn't in the manga but I don't see why he can't appear in Super. They already put filler characters in the first episode (Satan's assistants from the Cell Games).

Plus, didn't Toriyama write Gregory's character, along with the whole hammer bit for the show?

Since we have Super Dragon Balls, it's pretty obvious were going to get a Super Shenlong! I can't wait to see what he looks and acts like! :thumbup:

I don't remember about the hammer, but the text description here actually mentions that Toriyama designed Gregory.

Well they did use some in the first episode, so maybe they also use on the others.

Would be hilarious if they used the scene where Veggie and his father were destroying planets, atleast on some forums, that'd make some sweet rage.
