I never read these 'summaries', i think they are too insane spoilers.

Why even bother to read the chapter if you have basically read the whole script and seen a lot of the key panels?
It kinda takes away a lot from the surprise elements and enjoyment that are still in each chapter.
Seriously considering on avoiding the panel-spoilers too.
I dont mind spoilers, its all about the journey, not the destination, and all that, but its kinda silly that i can come on to discuss being excited for a chapter releasing tomorrow and have the ending spoiled for me in the topic to discuss upcoming chapters?

There needs to be a divide so people who dont like spoilers have somewhere to discuss and people who like to discuss the leaks can, because right now it seems the two groups are forced together and its screwing over the former.

I think a "OPEN SPOILERS" warning in the title would help. Then a spoiler free thread could show up

I agree, it doesnt help that the thread doesnt clarify how spoilers should be handled. But aside from the simplest solution of people using spoiler tags(which they seem adamantly against), the only other option is to split the two camps.

I would make a spoiler free discussion topic, but... am i allowed, is that not a mod thing to do?

It would be nice to have a thread specifically for leaks for a bit of stricter control on the actual spoilers.
That's a good idea. It would also help to separate the actual manga discussion of these conclusive speculations.

This is the spoiler-free thread. Or at least it was supposed to be... at one point... I guess... I think. Looking back at how this thread has been these last few days, I think it'd be fantastic if it could be like that again. Or maybe it should just get straight up locked between when the drafts come out and the full chapter comes out, while there'd be a "Dragon Ball Super Manga Spoiler & Speculation Thread" that could be used in the meantime.

As for me, I will not be giving my thoughts on the chapter - at least not until the whole thing is officially out and fully (professionally) translated and I urge others to do the same.
"Don't mess with DB fans, we complain first and read/watch later" :lol:
Really, though, the amount of premature judging that's been going on is directly silly, with some of it being proven baseless already. Once again, having a spoiler and speculation thread to siphon all that stuff out of this "main" thread would be great, so that we could have more well-informed discussion here once the chapters themselves come out. The rest of your post isn't all that far off base either.

I haven't read any spoilers outside of the drafts, but given this month's discourse, I'm in full support of having this thread routinely locked for a few days before release as it used to be.

I mean after reading the summary my opinion hasn’t changed at all what everyone was complaining about is still awful

It's part of the fun, what's the point of being a fan if you're not going to speculate and get worked up over nothing ? :mrgreen:

It's people riveting on their chance to feel validated in their opinion; to attack the "manga fans" (whatever that means) to prove themselves. My assumption is that everyone here is a Dragon Ball fan, capable of having discussions as equals and not segregate ourselves into little sectors trying to be the "superior faction", ignoring arguments, politeness and even common sense (like having all the information at hand).

Clearly I am mistaken.

I wish we were having fun making up theories or cracking jokes.

I feel like it's important that accurate information be used as the basis for discourse over outright lies fabricated to keep everyone as angry as possible.
I don't know what's inaccurate about saying Goku was nearly begging this goat to change his ways. Even after lying to him and attacking, he still tries to reason with Moro. You've got Jaco who probably hasn't seen a fraction of what Goku's seen telling him it's not going to work. At this point in his "career", Goku should not be acting this way, he knows better.
You were being totally hyperbolic and posted this totally disingenuous claim in all caps:

Which just isn't the case at all. Goku is explaining to Moro where he went wrong and why he lost, trying to get through to him one more time before deciding to kill him.

And is it Goku lecturing Moro that fucks up the situation for everyone? No. And arguably not even the senzu bean really. The actual thing that ruins everything is Goku and Jaco discussing in front of Moro that Merus had ultra instinct. That's the thing that makes Moro realise there's another way to win.

Don't tell me this "wait until the chapter is professionally translated and is officially released" crap. Already read the summaries, won't be much different when it comes out tomorrow. My opinion has changed from a few days ago with Goku giving Moro a senzu bean for the worse actually. It was completely and utterly unnecessary and stupid.

If you don't like us commenting on spoilers "prematurely" go kick rocks. I'm going to say whatever my thoughts are regardless.

This arc has turned into a dumpster fire and has been trash the last few chapters. Its a shame because it started out well.

Almost 2 fucking years of this shit since it debuted now, and the longest climax ever.

I'm ready for this arc to end already.

Hell, get us out of this ten year period lmao. But that's unlikely to happen.

I've come to accept that for me, the franchise ended with the end of the Buu arc, and all this new crap the last 5 years is like DLC for me, just extra shit. If i enjoy it that's cool, most of it I didn't. Nowhere near the same.

After Reading the spoilers, Goku’s decision to give moro a senzu bean wasnt what allowed Moro to recover even stronger. No, it was telling Moro that Merus had Ultra Instinct. Thats what did him in, and that makes my feelings towards Goku’s characterization much much better for this chapter

I read the summary, he gives Moro a Senzu then stalls by giving him a chance. When Moro says he won’t take the chance only then does he decide to finish him except by telling Moro about Merus he gives Moro the idea to get Merus power. I will say the last part isn’t necessarily Goku’s fault but the rest is. The power is too much for Moro but again Goku takes time to finish him and then Moro merges with the Earth making the situation worse

So no it doesn’t make Goku look better at all

Goku’s speech about training is good but it still ignores that Goku gave Moro a chance that caused the situation to become more dangerous in the end.


When people say it wasn’t the Senzu that made Moro more dangerous what does that matter. The point is the Senzu gave Moro time to become a greater threat.

My feathers are hardly "ruffled", just calling it as i see it. You place your own opinion to a higher degree of importance than other peoples enjoyment. Again, i dont personally mind spoilers, but i'm willing to respect that other people do, seems weird you would take pride in not doing that.

I personally preferred the teasers for the anime when it was still running.
Mostly we only had the episode title and a few leaked images, but the images didn't gave away enough to take conclusions about the story.
It was mere innocent speculating. Now everything is given away, before the actual chapter is released.

And exactly what did I say that ruined the enjoyment for other people? Read my posts, I said nothing specifically revealing other than my distaste for this crap.

Goku giving Moro the senzu bean is all I mentioned, which has been talked about on this forum for the last few days constantly. I didn't mention anything specific after I read the summaries.

Still, I hope that Vegeta knows how to spirit fission an entire planet(or at least the part Moro is exposed on) else everyone dies(except Whis and Beerus...at least until Shin gets caught in the blast.)

Goku: You know how you nearly killed all of us and it took the power of angles to take you down ?
Moro: Yes ?
Goku: Well, if you go to prison and somehow find a way to train, you'll get a lot more out of it then simply eating planets.
Moro: So if I go back to prison and happen to escape when you're not looking and start training, I'll be stronger ?
Goku: :thumbup:
Moro: OK then, I'll go to prison. :lol:

Do you see how bad that would be for everyone if he took Goku up on his offer ? No matter how you look at it, Goku's written terribly here.
