And OLKv3, do you have a link for the RAW chapter? I don't want to wait til the 21 because thats the day of my last exam! Can't be distracted thinking about this new chapter.



Me neither. I hope instead Toppo and Dyspo have more of a tag-team dynamic like what we saw them do against Goku. They don't really need transformations to do better.. but this is dragon ball, so its more likely to happen.

Look above in my post, i posted the raws
Is there a better image where i can follow whats going on?
Sorry thats the best one that has been posted on N Forums

Makes you wonder why they ever decided to hype up Ribrianne, seeing how she jobbed in both Anime and Manga without doing anything relevant.

Thankfully they kicked her out right away in the manga, in the anime she was in our faces all the time, even in Goku and Jiren's fight.

I don't think she was hyped in the manga outside of a promo picture.

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.

By looking at the leaks,U10 got recked by Piccolo,Gohan and #17, sounds cool and disappointing because they turned out to be losers like the anime and Obuni is the only one that matters.Man can Gowasu catch a break here :cry: .

I'm guessing that Toei decided to use her as a parody of the magical girl genre because of her design and that's why she showed up as much as she did.

Piccolo got eliminated in the same goddamn way he got eliminated in the anime.

Fucks sake.

Why wasn't that changed in the manga?

Toriyama-san's outline probably said:

* Piccolo gets ringed out by a bug. LOL get rek'd booN.
"Citation needed."
"too lazy

feel free to take it with grain of salt or discredit me altogether, I'm not losing any sleep"

Toyotaro too scred to go against Toriyama's outline.

The last fight Piccolo has in Super is losing against a fucking bug. Ridiculous!

He didn't even get to fight Saonel and Pirina in the manga.

It goes to show how little importance was put on Piccolo in the outline and how those 2 Namakinas were just created to fill a number count for U6, not play any major role in the story or for Piccolo. I give the anime props for using the 3 better.

Because Toyotaro does not care about him at all to suggest a change(he can't even write him in character in the few times he appeared anyways) and Toriyama has been going out his way to humiliate Piccolo since the Buu saga lol.

It seem as though U7 are cleaning house. It really does seem like it will be the anime all over again with the main cast getting the lion's share of eliminations.

There were a lot of eliminations that happened off-screen. By the end of the chapter there are ony 37 fighters left on the arena.

Piccolo being eliminated by the bug shouldn't surprise anyone, he was specifically mentioned in the interview as an example for 'who loses to who', so even if there were some changes made regarding the elimination order and such, his case at least was a sealed deal. What I'm curious to find out is whether the same reason will be used, aka the hearing thing.

I'm guessing there is more to the chapter than this though....

If Saonel and Pirina are nothing in the manga then Piccolo could have ay least been allowed to interact and eliminate them due to the anime. They might get a little focus in the manga now. Maybe Gohan fighys with someone else against them or they are jusy nothing.

Literally everyone is filler apart the top Pride Troopers.

Cabba will probably get destroyed by Frieza soon and Goku will just mess with Caulifla and Kale again.

Ribrianne is the worst one and how the fuck did she get so much promotion? She was even on that manga cover.

This arc is just a video game with a bunch of levels with the top 3 pride Troopers the final boss. An arcade ladder from a fighting game and it gets harder as it goes along.

I should probably hold off on judgement but even based on those mini scans it seems toyotaro has a really hard time drawing 17.

Very interesting to ser ribrianne and friends gone this chapter all in one go. I wonder if all the negative backlash against the characters influenced him at all.

Gohan will probably solo them at the same time Goku solos the U2 knights, Father/Son kamehameha seems to be part of the outline.

So this kinda breaks the theory of the manga following the same anime order of elimination? 18 going out before Piccolo?
OLKv3 wrote:Ribrianne can't concentrate with Krillin yelling, because he's so handsome :D
Which doesn't make sense considering in the anime she didn't understand why 18 was engaged with someone like Krillin.

Because they just don't give a fuck
