I hope SUPER NEVER RETURNS

how you guys like that?
I know what you actually mean, but the first thing I thought was: Do we have a badass over here? :D
How'd ya'll feel if Toei never brings it back except for movies and that'd mean less power scailing and story inconsistency bullshit from you guys

I'm honestly having more fun watching SDBH (promo anime) than I would watching that God awful Moro Saga that's going on in the manga like who the hell wants to watch Toyotaro's fights adapted if they're not as intimidating or as spectacle as Toriyama's were back in the day?
Why would movies mean less power scaling or story inconsistency?

You're assuming that an adaptation of Toyo's fights couldn't improve the choreography or that the fights could look much better when in motion. Plus, aside from a few scenes, SDBH's fights have been pretty bland overall with a lot of stiff gliding and repetitive energy blasts as well as WAY TOO MANY 'We all stand still while the screen shakes to pretend this awkward beam clash has more impact'.

Plus, SDBH fights have as much investment as a video game versus match.
When Super apparently shoves Goku down our throats:

Lol.... Toriyama actually like Toyotaro's fight, a lot people who read manga actually enjoy it, if you didn't then Idk why you reading or watching dragon ball, just remember that Akira himself said "dragon ball is nothing but fighting." that it.

There was a YouTube a long time ago originally ajay prediction would come April but then again he change it to July that is all and it has been said in here 1000000000000 times
So he really did Say Super was in preproduction?
According to sources, Super started pre-production in late 2018.
But the producer said they haven't even gotten anything done yet.

The producer can't say anything until the show is officially announced. Whether or not they've worked on as much as the rumors say is anyone's guess, but they've done something.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

The fact that we cant get the characters to age beyond two babies being born, and majority of the cast can't even change their clothes is baffling to me.
So basically your problem isn't really character growth
Oh don't give me that, you know exactly what I mean. Don't defend the modern stuff for keeping everyone in this ageless, progressionless gap.
I don’t have to defend anything since one of the best written modern manga takes place in a span of two years, is still ongoing after over twenty years, and outside of art style change, they haven’t changed in appearance either and some characters look younger. So I don't have an issue with 'modern Dragon Ball' not aging up characters. Heck, as long as the story is good, I don't care if the entire series that pans ten years in real times happens over a weekend in-universe.

And Super has hardly been 'progressionless' for the reasons I wrote. Characters changed in Super, it just isn't the old guard outside of Roshi and Krillin, and to be frank the old guard doesn't need to change.

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.

In my opinion, Dragon Ball Super will come back in April 2020, when Gegege no Kitaro's season 2 is over and this time there is a good chance that it will be the case since Kitaro never made more than 120 episodes. This is the only niche on which we can theorize. XD
I honestly wouldn't mind Super not coming back until April if it will come back better than ever and the new movie can run alongside it, or better yet be the conclusion to the new series. I miss watching new episodes on a regular basis, but its good to have some downtime to take it all in and for the manga to have a head start.

He also said he's not much of a fan of the 'Fighting' Aspect that's why he gives depth to the stories so readers aren't bored by the fights when it gets to that part you fool

Isn't a seasonal anime the one where you get 14 episodes a season and then it goes on a break for a few months? Toyotaro would have to come up with an idea for an arc and have it all mapped out while the anime is on hiatus so Toei can adapt it.. That sounds like hell. And, unlike with BNHA, we have a monthly manga which already works him hard enough IIRC.

Not every seasonal anime only has 14 episodes a season. Quite a few have seasons more comparable to an American TV season.

Zero context, zero setup. Its in NO way meant to be seen as a "beginning point" for ANYTHING other than the next story arc. It flows precisely and fluidly from where things left off in the aftermath of the 23rd Budokai and mostly hits the ground running from there without really stopping to look back. You're plopping someone into the middle of a book starting at chapter 195 out of 519 for absolutely no good goddamn reason, with very minimal opportunity to look back at much needed context and character/story growth.

14? Thats a weird number for even seasonal anime. Most seasonal anime have 12 episodes and then you have to wait ATLEAST a year for the next season. Occasionally they get 13th episode. Others tend to have 24 to 25 episodes which cover 2 seasons.
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)

I'm not good at telling staff members, but isn't the movie releasing in like a month? By now I think they have it done. And then there is the case of new One Piece arc having DBS Broly art style too.

That's just what he thinks. At this point I don't think anyone knows what's going on with it.

I've been expecting a tweet like this but I didn't think any of them would post it so soon. I expected mid July. And out of all the excuses they could have used I didn't even think one piece was going to be one of them.

Yonkou shares sources with Geekdom and Ajay so does this tweet mean they're at a loss? I get that animators are kept in the dark about a lot of stuff but there has to be a limit. The ones that keep tabs with Geekdom, Ajay and Yonkou don't even know they're working on a different series?

Wano is an arc Oda has been excited to work on in the manga for a long while, so it's not too surprising that Toei would be working extra hard to make sure this arc looks good animated.

What may be going on is that Toei could be giving wrong info to "leakers" on purpose to throw everyone off.
