Knowing Toei, I smell some kind of bonus for a re-release of the manga rather than the whole series in color.Mewzard wrote:I still find it funny that Dragon Ball is (if not from a new series, then a later reprint) follow Saint Seiya in full color mangahood, given they were both popular Jump manga released at around the same time in the 80s, made into popular Jump manga that continue to be Toei's best international successes (the one area they surpass One Piece in, lol).
The question about what colors will be used is an interesting one, given that we know that the movie is coming off the heels of this reprint. Will they try to keep things consistent with anime colors? Will they be faithful to Toriyama's semi-inconsistent idea of who should be what color?
And I wonder if this will effect other manga: Jumps got a lot of big manga, some that Toei has made anime of. Will this lead to a full color reprint of Fist of the North Star? The original Saint Seiya? Maybe something else, like Mazinger Z or Getter Robo (I fear the thought of what Toei would do to manga Ryoma Nagare...)? Or hell maybe something like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. That would make some glorious pages in full color.
Also, after DBZ gets colored...what would it mean for Toei? Would Toei keep an eye on sales to see how it does, and maybe use those colors in a future reanimation of Dragon Ball? Not any time soon, but years down the road. With the new Sailor Moon coming out, I imagine anything is possible.
I do wonder if this might inspire Toriyama, watching the excitement of so many fans seeing his work again, to continue the manga. Not weekly of course, Toriyama is far too lazy for that. But, a full colored manga release monthly, or just in batches whenever he gets a few chapters done (...I'm not seriously intending to reference back so much, it's just something I really want).
I made this topic over a month ago, asking about a Full Color release...so is it fair to say I unconsciously won at predicting Dragon Ball news?
Speaking of the manga industry as a whole, I don't think it means much. Even the color version of Saint Seiya: Next Dimension was dropped from Champing magazine (while the volumes are still in full color), because, according to rumours, the other authors complained.
The manga artists often have assistants working for them, it's well possible that it is the same group doing the coloring, but easily someone else following the same standard.kei17 wrote:Then it must be the same person who also does DBSD.

The color palette seems to be the same as that of Dragon Ball SD, so I guess Naho Ooishi is in charge of this.
Not necessarily. Of course I didn't expected it would be completely different from the original manga, they must keep some consistency at least. It is probably look like SD, more of an hybrid of the manga and anime.Cold Skin wrote:Don't we have some proof that it's not anime colors with that sample?
There's Goku's Gi being orange, but that could be a minor hint at that I guess.
But maybe more importantly, when looking at Vegeta breaking his scouter, it seems that his scouter is green, while it's red in the anime if I'm not mistaken.
