732 or 734? I could have sworn it was mentioned that they changed Vegeta's year of birth to 734.

The AGES appear randomly on-screen (as we can see in one of the trailers), we better wait until the movie is actually released so we can get a definitive answer. The spoilers are messed up at this point. Different people saying different stuff and some different interpretation out of them.

I hope they start showing few minute Clips soon like they did with BoG and RoF. All these trailers don’t satisfy me at all. There’s only 8 days left now, so now seems like a good time for them to start showing actual movie footage.
Oh look.. A human being with an opinion.. What are the odds!?

Kids like DB, don't get me wrong but they are not the make or break part of the demographic.
Which is why DB Super when it returns needs to be a seasonal anime with a new timeslot, so we can get more content that appeals to the actual majority demographic of the series (15-34 year olds).

There's literally no reason for Modern DB to be so censored and kiddy from either a financial nor an artistic standpoint, when most of its fanbase isn't kids smh. Other major Shonen series (like My Hero Acadmeia, Hunter x Hunter, One Punch Man, etc) tend to be much more courteous to its adult fanbases than Dragonball does.

What was the last seasonal show that Toei made? I'm genuinely curious about that, because to my knowledge, they mainly just produce things either as longrunning titles or yearly ones.

As for getting a new time-slot, I really don't see that happening considering DB has already found proven success in that time slot.

Kind of expected IGN to somehow give it mediocre to negative score but an 8/10 is really good. I watched IGN's video review instead of reading it.

So Brolli's Vegeta's age now? Ok.
Raditz is still older than Vegeta. Good to know.
Tarble still exists so if they said two or three then there's one or two more uni 7 saiyans we don't know of. Interesting.

The whole Vegeta's pride keeps him from being a purely motivated saiyan unlike Gokû and Brolli. Wow that could lead to some fun dialogue if Brolli ever returns or becomes a regular.

calling it now, one of them is female so the saiyans can have an 'Eve' to repopulate from

I don't think repopulating is a thing Gokû and Vegeta care about. Brolli's already got a small circle of friends (and girlfriend in Chelye?) and even so you need way more than one woman to repopulate an entire species.

I'm not that invested in the topic (I care way more about how Gokû, Vegeta, and Brolli will interact as a group in the future) but since I was quoted, I looked it up.

It's not like the Saiyans need repopulating anyway. If Vegeta was serious about restoring the U7 Saiyan race, he'd just get help getting the Super Dragon Balls to wish back Planet Vegeta and all the Saiyans who were killed by Freeza when it was destroyed. That would certainly be faster and far more effective than trying to breed more Saiyans from such a limited number.

Or hell, Kale and Caulifla come to U7 in order to become stronger so Caulifla can continue trying to prove she's better than Goku, and instead end up encountering Broly and more relationships form.

Nah, if Kale and Caulifla get any romantic development it should be with each other. There's no repopulation going on there.

who said anything about it being goku and vegeta doing said repopulating?

I'm not talking 'pure' saiyans either. There is also the possibility of breeding with the other half breeds from other saiyans. Yes they wont be pure but they will stay majority saiyan. Who knows? this could breed out the problems the race has like vulnerable tails etc. This could extend to Goten and Bulla, a hypothetical Tarble child being with a hypothetical broly kid who then go on to have a lot of offspring.

The saiyans are strongly at risk of dying off, and a female pureblood being able to have a lot of children is at least one idea for the race to come back stronger than just four dudes and only two of them had kids like the Z series info we were given by raditz.

Just throwing it out there.

If there is a female though... there's going to be a lot of doujins...
