What if Dragon Ball Super was Only 49 Episodes?

Post by JulieYBM » Sat Jun 02, 2018 1:35 pm

I've been messing around with this little project for how I would handle Dragon Ball Super if I had about 50% control over the storyline and execution. I've tried to stay within the general framing of the story arcs while also making as many little changes as I want. I didn't make all of the changes I wanted, though, I just focused on cutting the story down to a small length. I'm still not happy with how long my version of the Tournament of Power is but it will have to do since I put so much effort into the character writing. Anyway, I'd appreciate it if you lent me a critical eye so I could improve the story some more. Thank you.

I'd cut out the move retellings and the slice of life episodes which will bring things down to 90 episodes.

Champa's arc can be cut from 14 down to 10 episodes.

Black's arc can be cut from 21 down to 15 episodes.

That leaves 24 episodes for the tournament of power arc which should be enough if you cut out the recrutement and the majority of non-main fighter episodes.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

I'm still working through it. But, I like how you actually gave Sorbet and Tagoma a character arc that actually went somewhere instead of turning them into just another pair of lackies that die.

I've always found the end of Fukkatsu no F hilarious, so I wanted to combine that with my general intention to do events differently from the comic and cartoons. I wrote that ending like a year ago, though, and never ecpected Freeza to return...

Please let me know if you have more to say...

Could have worked. The first two seasons are just rehashes of Battle of God and Resurrection F, so the rest could have been done with lesser episodes.

My version changes and adds a few things, though.

I've done a preliminary version of how I would handle Broli Episodes #50-53. I plan on working out a few more points before posting it, though.

Wouldn’t 4 episodes of Broly be too few?

It's based purely upon what we know about the script that Toriyama wrote so far. If an extended version ever happens then I would of course do some revisions. This is what I have written so far. I'm not pleased with it yet. I really want to remove Gogeta but I'll have to wait until I have a better idea of where Gokuu and Vegeta are going with their growth:
