To make this movie perfect for me it needs these 3 things:

1) At least 1/3 of the movie should be flashbacks. It should take its time in explaining the history of saiyans, their power, the antagonist(s)’ history, and their relationship to Freeza.

2) At least the U6 trio. I’d like more new U6 saiyans but i would be contempt with just the U6 trio. Maybe at the time of the movie, they just so happen to be visiting U7 to train with Goku or Vegeta.

3) Freeza. He’s been left alive for a reason. I believe he’ll become more of a Loki type of character (before Loki was redeemed) who always helps when it benefits him but as soon as he sees a way where he can win, he tries to backstab who he was just helping.

I’ll assume that the following V-jumps will keep revealing more designs. Assuming we get another 5 character designs next month, i’d expect designs for Gohan, (maybe) Krillin, Bulma, etc. What i’d hope for is Cabba, Caulifla, Kale, Gohan, and Gotenks or Bulma.

Its a movie about saiyans so i don’t think its wrong to just want a saiyan fest of fighting rather than saiyans vs saiyans and some earthlings.
I called it that Gogeta, Bardock, and something Broly related would be in the movie before it was even announced that it was a Broly movie. 8)

That's the thing. I'm loving everything in terms of visuals, but I'm still almost positive the plot is going to a total shitshow. Hoping they convince me otherwise in the months to come, but I just have so little faith in Toriyama's ability to write anything of worth after seeing Super. Then combine that with the fact that the entire premise seems like the Solo Star Wars film: a story nobody asked for that exists solely for fan service.

Boy do I hope I'm wrong.

Similar. I don't feel excited yet because I don't know anything big about the plot.

I love the new character designs, but without a story hook it's hard to feel like theorizing.

If there are henchmen he will fight. If others don't get character sheets like this then maybe that is a good sign. He will do something even if it is not that big.

The designs they showed are the expected ones - that is, the ones that typically don't change... ever (especially in the case of Piccolo...). Characters like Gohan, Kuririn and 18 will probably be different.

Whether Toriyama’s script is good or not, I have a lot more faith in the plot thanks to Tatsuya Nagamine being the director. He’ll make changes to the script if he feels it’s necessary.

I really hope we get some kind of story tease soon. I still have no idea what the plot is about other than it revolving around the Saiyans and it’s after the ToP.

Anyone else hoping for a canon ss4 type transformation from the villain? I feel it'll go well with the theme of the movie.

Loving Vegeta's color change in clothing. Toriyama originally wanted to give Vegeta black clothes in the RoF movie (before it was changed to being gray in the anime for whatever reason), so very nice they finally implemented that.

And Shintani was handpicked by Toriyama? No wonder, his designs look as if they were extracted directly from the original manga, which is a definite plus for me :thumbup:

Yes. That and maybe the villain’s super saiyan form is super saiyan berserk like Kale.

The new art showing Beerus with the new style looks actually pretty nice to me. He looks so...cute? lol

That and Vegeta not having bright blue anymore is good, that was an eyesore in Super.

I just want them to just tell give some information on what is the plot. I want the new designs to not be wasted on a bad story.

I would dig this trio being the main protagonists of the movie.

Piccolo’s only hope of being important is if they tackle the whole Namekian Book of Legends stuff.

On a side note, i hope Beerus and Whis are just there at the beginning but leave later before all the real stuff goes down because just the presence of Beerus and Whis automatically lower tension.

And the fact that the retellings don't have Toriyama's finger other than the Namekuseijin book. Filler characters like Gregory appear, when he didn't back in Movie 14. Since there is no official source that says that I must consider the retellings "because the replaced the movies", one can pretty much stick with the movies just fine.
Gregory was created by Toriyama. You don't know that Namekuseijin book was the only Toriyama's addition. What you do know is that the retelling were his idea, and that the sagas after Fukkatsu no F saga do not fit if we, instead of going throught the TTV show, watch only the movies and then jump to the U6 tournament.

And the movie is placed after the Tournament of Power, so the only think that continuity-wise makes sense is going through the TV show, not the movies. So no Tarble (Then again, he may appear and own me hard XD).

No one asked for a lot of Dragonball or Star Wars stories.

Though I understand his worry that the movie may not have a great story, I don't think he should trash on the movie before it even comes out.

Why can’t they change up the uniforms again? I don’t care how iconic it is, a little change never hurt anyone. Even Luffy changed his clothes after awhile. There was nothing wrong with their wardrobe change in the Frieza arc.
