So it is true Super will end with Episode 131?

Post by DBZAOTA482 » Fri Mar 09, 2018 8:25 pm

That's about a week from now and with that in mind, we can say "Finally good ridd... I mean, "Farwell, Super. It's been a long ride."

What will happen with the series after Super is the real question tho...

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

This has been known for months at this point, don’t really get the point of the topic.

I don’t understand how people are still doubting this. It was announced as ending, yet people insist “hiatus / cancelled”

No

It is ending. There has never been any genuine doubt from the cast, crew, or anyone watching the series

They even have "Final Episode" indicated after the title of 131 in Animedia/mage and people still doubt it's the ending. :eh:

Nothing. :eh: There will be no series after Dragon Ball Super so obviously nothing will happen with the "series".

But hey, Dragon Ball franchise in no way will be dead after Dragon Ball Super's conclusion. Fortunately, Dragon Ball Heroes is still a strong on-going series and will continue throughout this year. Xenoverse might continue to get updates. A new minor game (i.e. for portable consoles) might be announced. There will be a new movie (for Japan-only viewers, unless you live in Japan to get to see it this year, otherwise, we're all going to wait until next year). There will be teasers, posters, probably interviews regarding to the new movie in the next months.

You're right, but unfortunately, I don't care about these things at all. (Dragon Ball Heroes, Xenoverse, a new minor game ...).
The movie is still a bit interested, but one movie (every two years?) is nothing.

Super ending doesn't preclude the possibility of another series coming some time down the line, but as of right now there are no indications of another one being planned or in the works. Furukawa and producer Satoru Takami both think (and this is just their personal speculation from what I can tell) that the ending of the arc could be Toriyama's way of setting up some future stories, but if that happens then who knows what form it will take.

Even without their words, DBS has brought the biggest amount of potential to the DB world ever with all its introduced.

Zalama, Universes 13 to 18, Jiren’s evil-doer, all the other universes, the First time traveling mortal from universe 12, Future Trunks and Mai (leading to their own child), backstory of the gods, backstory for Hit, Planet Sadala stuff, etc

DBS has given us plenty to work with.
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)

Dragon Ball's run on TV is over. Donezo. Old news. Why are people still in denial? Let the memories suffice and let's not milk this cow any longer.

You're right, there are just too many loose ends to leave unattended.
Zalama, the other universes, Planet sadala, the first time traveling mortal and the timeline of F Trunks and Mai are what I'm particularly interested in.

Super ends with Episode 131 and it will probably stay that way.....for now.

Is kinda foreshadowed by Bulma. :D

Freeza wins the ToP and trolls everyone with his wish: 'I wish this anime would end right now'. Cue credits.

But of course it's not over. Tell me one thing you'll do when more dragon Ball on TV gets annouced and post a picture. Like eating your underwear.

Of course it's ending for now, but as to a potential subsequent series you seem awful sure there isn't going to be one.

Any further animation will continue to devalue the product IMO. Maybe keep a monthly Manga going. The writing in this past arc(and the show overall) has been objectively bad. So many plot holes and inconsistencies, not to mention poor animation. I think there's a decent amount of people in the fandom that would prefer to let the memories suffice and not do anymore damage to the Dragon Ball legacy.

Yeah, I'm gonna be sticking around for the movie at the end of this year but as far as the next TV series goes... well, we'll see.

I'll always have the older stuff either way.
