Lmao first the tinkering of FujiTVs website for episode preveiw images now tinkering of source code for the main DBS website? Haha. As much as the fan base can be frustrating at times you gotta love it!

Thats the whole reason resurrection f sucks so bad, Toriyama made that for fans who wanted more action. Toriyama is at his worst when he gives in to fan demands.


We need to as a fanbase accept what Dragon ball is now.
Toyble needs a filter/good bunch of editors, and those must be the Dragon Ball Room people.

Remember how Toriyama needed his editors in order to produce a coherent story? Same thing with Toyble.

Fans always wanted to have a strong female saiyan character, we are in 2017, not in the 80s when most female characters were useless. And wasnt at some point Toei goal in increasing the amount of female fans? Caulifla and Kele? could help and also create more merchadise.

BTW has anyone seen the Top 100 anime ranking? DBZ got ranked below Bleach, Yes, Bleach of all things, and with the latest news about 2 female saiyans, i feel like they want to push Cabba as the Saiyan version of Kirito.
First of all toriyama only had 3 editors throughout all of dragon ball. The best one was torishima. Who if had his way Dragon ball would have ended with Freeza, which is for the best.


I remember when Toriyama's editors made the clusterfuck of the cell saga. That shit wasn't coherent at all. I remember when Toriyama ignored his editors and made Goku grow up. That was pretty balsy.


Fans wanted a female saiyan character, NO ONE wanted a gender swapped Broly!!!!!!!!

Also anime mostly introduces female characters for 2 reasons: shipping and fanservice.

I've gone through the source code of every competing universe, and it looks like Damon (Dahmon?) is the only character currently imbedded for release

It's not working yet, but this is the link to Damon's image: http://www.toei-anim.co.jp/tv/dragon_s/ ... _damon.png

It's still early, but we have to keep checking it until they upload it.

Introducing strong girls is for both male and female fans(Mikasa, Ryuuko, Revy, Kyoukai, Tatsumaki, Erza, Misty/Kasumi,etc)
I sure do love Ranma Saotome, the best female character outside of Lum Invader.

Dahmon:
Can change his techniques.He can disappear and reappear in the air, then reappear on the ground. He is a suicide bomber. - You must wait for this attack and counter that technique. When he changes technique. he moults and leaves behind shedding. An empty cicada - The insect warrior.[/spoiler]
Sounds awfully familiar. :think:
Must be that insect warrior in the intro. The one by all the Uni 6 fighters.

Goku seems to be powering up with a red aura (minute 0:12) and his new card is in his base form, while Vegeta is SSB, Cabba SSJ and also 17, 18 (in their tournament outfit) and Hit appear.
It's nothing. Goku does that charge before hitting the opponent with some punches and kicks. It's the beginning of his action ability (his technique, melee attack).

So maybe Caulifla and not!Brolli might be two people? I hope they are.

Insect ninja could provide an interesting fight.

I really hope Goku can't sense King Kai from the World of Void. :lol: Goku might want to watch his butt too. He doesn't have the best luck with exploding bugs.

If this new Kale is the Female Broli in the opening, then the irony of cauliflowa being similar to broccoli as in Cauliflowa bearing a resemblance to Broli is null and void now. Now that's a bummer.

It doesn't look like broccoli, but kale is a member of the same species as broccoli and cauliflower.

Now I'm also believing there really are 2 female saiyans.

Kales profile is basically the opposite of what Renzo said about Caulifla :think:

That makes it sound like she might be a member of Cabba's squad. Would explain the battle suit-like outfit she wears.

So they should pander only to the sort of characters you like? Most of the girls you just listed are moe, though, and attract male fans.
