dbs broly follows anime or manga?

seems like it follows the manga since kaioken and evolution are never brought up. also toei anime will probably start following toyo manga when the anime returns.

It considers both at a glance, but I'm willing to say that it's closer to the manga, because Kale was telegraphing Broly's concept as a golden SSJ, not necessarily green since that was from the anime, while Vegeta returned SSJB to its aura when he had SSJG already. The movie inherited some of the anime fighting quirks though, such as the characters not going full power from the get go, and moves that go with the flow instead of being handpicked as panels.

neither does have the SSB 100% of manga ...

for me it is clear with the message of the movie

"there are strong opponents in other universes" to show the opponents that goku faced and influenced him.

Universe 2 with ribrianne, kefla and the big three of U11 all that only makes sense in the anime version

Broly also has the green transformation just like Kale

None. Dragon Ball Super Broly follows Toriyama's continuity (the movies), There is no Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Kaio-ken or Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Evolution (all stuff from Toei) but there isn't "Completed Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan" from Toyotaro either.

There is also another mention of Tarble that only happened in Movie 14, while both Toei and Toyotaro erroneously preferred to ignore.

There's also the fact that Freeza didn't know what fusion was when Gogeta explained it even though Freeza already saw Gotenks and Kefla in the anime. Kefla also appeared in the manga but I'm pretty sure she was originally Toei's idea. Also, there's no reference to Kale's berserker form which looked identical to LSSJ in the anime. It seems that Toriyama only follows his own outline continuity and doesn't take into account any anime or manga exclusive content.

Do you know what it's like to put things in a blender and then try to separate them from the end result based on flavour? That's how Toriyama considered things from the manga and the anime when he tasted both. He's not oblivious to the events that were, but he wants to detach himself from the details that Toyotaro and Toei studios introduced, to make the movie as iconic as it should be. This is why the simplest forms were kept in their natural progression just like Toriyama insisted that manga Goku Black had them.

They all knew Kale from the Tournament of Power, and yet nobody commented on Broly's similarity to her, since this is supposed to be his event with Toriyama's corrections to the form, as well as to the character of previous Toei animated movies, from which the anime drew to make an original Saiyan girl fan service-y. The movie was prone to this kind of service through Gogeta though. The character looked more like Toriyama's sketch, but his moves were throwbacks to the old version, and that's a Toei animation thing to do.

Broly follows Toriyama's plot lines. Toriyama doesn't have MSSB or BlueXKK/SSBE Vegeta. Just regular Blue.
