Translation:
- If you don't mind, I'm trying to improve Dragon Ball Super!
- With fanservice and ass-pulled power ups?
- No. With plots and good strategies. Of course, with fanservice and power ups!


I really really really really really REAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLY hope that meme was made before the Kyo Ani fire because otherwise I would beat the shit out of the person who said that Toei should burn. NO ONE deserves that. Especially over shitty fan whining.

EDIT:Tian didnt translate the last part of the meme that said "Toei should have been burned a long time ago #Asshole"
I didn't because I didn't find it important to translate it.

19 years ago I was rushing home from school to watch DBZ on Cartoon Network, and today I've rushed home from work to watch DBS on Pop. I guess it's true the more things change the more they stay the same. :lol:

He's probably referring to the Bardock special. Zarbon was the one who first recommended destroying Planet Vegeta because the saiyans were rapidly growing in strength.
It was actually Beerus disguised as Zarbon #StayWoke

Like with Freeza, where he starts off over 10 times stronger than all his henchmen except Ginyu (because...well, just because), then we find out he can transform and get even more powerful, and then he reveals he can transform two more times, before finally coming out with the fact that he hasn't even been using anywhere near 50% of his power. Oh, and he can survive in the vacuum of space. All this stuff is just presented as the way Freeza is, without even an attempt at rationalizing it, yet the tone dictates we're supposed to take all this silly grasping at straws as thrilling danger. So I guess I don't really take the power inflation in the Boo arc seriously, but I don't take the power inflation in earlier arcs seriously either, so there's no net loss of seriousness. I think a silly story presented as serious is harder to accept than a silly story presented as silly.

I've also seen people blame the manga for adding the line, arguing that the anime was more vague or Toyotarou somehow forced Toei to include the line before he even covered that event himself.

It's truly unfortunate that Toyotarou has the power to bully Toriyama, Shuiesha and Toei around like that.

edit: on the dropped plot threads posted earlier, I think it's likely that Toei never intended to follow through on them and they're just the kind of throwaway lines you insert so if they end up lining up to some detail in the future it looks like they were foreshadowed all along.

Because I can't imagine they thought they'd get to do something so big if it's completely absent from Toriyama's script. Or maybe they just thought they could predict where Toriyama was going/thought they could suggest the idea to him like they did with Broly.

I think that's probably the most plausible explanation. They tried to push this same thread way back in the U6 vs U7 tournament and continued it in the ToP despite having Toriyama's outline way ahead of time and knowing that no "ningen uprising" was going to happen. Then again, it's not like Toei's averse to making completely random changes even when they already know what's happening- see, for example, that scene of Vegeta beating up Gohan in the Freeza arc on Earth and declaring that no one can contest him now, only to be sitting back under the tree and not mentioning the incident when it comes time to follow Toriyama's material again (months after it had been written).

Then again, we have Hearts in DBH with his anti-God plot. Maybe they were setting themselves up to use a character/arc like that, but didn't get their way and he got relegated to Heroes? It's kind of unusual timing for Heroes to get its first completely new characters at the same time there's actually new material for them to cover. And it might explain why things after the anime ended have been very hush-hush and generally weird.

Toei's dropped fanfic plot threads.

Not much related to this context: but there's also Gohan saying he would reach a form that no one have ever seen. Freaking Toei...
