I completely agree with your take on anime’s RoF, which is why I was pleased to know for sure that Toriyama doesn’t consider it at all.The Undying wrote: ↑Mon Jul 06, 2020 10:18 amNah, the "kakoku" one is the second. There's other continuity nonsense in the anime's RF arc (like making references to anime filler in Z) but those two contradictions are between that and Broly specifically.
I give the extra Blue forms a pass because they're just enhancements of Blue in the manga, but you're right, Toriyama writes DB the way he alone sees its universe. And nothing of value is lost: Resurrection 'F' in the anime is so bad it's impossible to take seriously.
He did, but he just meant the film follows a story that happened to be airing on TV at the time. The audience was only familiar with the anime's take on that arc when the blurb was originally written.
I was worried that his mention of the Namekian Book of Legends meant he put priority on the retelling of his movies considering how they said it was his idea to retell them in the first place, but fortunately that’s not the case.
The manga in this regard does a much better job at retelling Battle of Gods as it’s basically an extended flashback, and Beerus later on even recalls his movie line about Goku being his 2nd strongest opponent (which wasn’t in the manga), and RoF which is just summarized in like a panel or two of dialogue.
I would say that Toriyama for sure is more knowledgeable about Super’s manga which is why it doesn’t seem like his outlines and Broly contradict it, with the only exception being Vegeta not using his powered up Blue form but that’s probably just Toriyama not being particular enough to fully outline and detail the course of battles.
And the script was also finalized around 2017, before that form ever appeared in the anime or manga, and possibly even before mastered SSB made its debut in May 20th 2017.
(Actually Blue is mostly auraless in the movie so it feels like it’s the mastered version too... but why wouldn’t Vegeta use his powered up Blue form which he has shown he can use at will in the Moro arc?)
