You can't say that about a hypothetical situation. In a universe where things are fundamentally different enough for an entire planet-threatening super god to never come to power, it's unlikely for that to be the only difference. And if you have any creativity, it certainly shouldn't be.Grimlock wrote: ↑Fri Sep 20, 2019 5:04 pmThe personalities are basically the same. While one of them didn't experiece Goku Black and Zamasu, they are both that tragic character. Trunks went to live in a timeline created by Beerus once he defeated Zamasu, that timeline is identical to the present one and will only start looking a bit different once Future Trunks saga doesn't occur to them (assuming Trunks arrived in that timeline just a bit before the actual beginning of the saga).
Well I'm not here just to please you. Dragon Ball certainly isn't. You're making these rash judgements, telling people what they like is bad and what you like is good on their premise alone, but you dismiss or ignore any discussion on how those premises are executed, because it would hurt your ability to claim your taste is superior. So why discuss?
I didn't mention HS lightly, one recent story features multiple timelines of characters bleeding into themselves. This leads to them becoming ill and frail, having existential crises, and hurting others. All because being two versions of yourself at once can fucking hurt. Your idea of Dragon Ball tackling this is just what design they have. Why trust your judgement of an idea when your best extrapolation of one is a wardrobe change and a haircut?
Sooo it's pretty pointless to bitch about it? If that's what you think, why do you care?
You're saying Dragon Ball should do new things while ignoring new things you don't care about. You're essentially arguing that quality is irrelevant. But you can tell new stories with old material, interesting things with existing plot setups, structures and ideas, but you need to do it well. This arbitrary system of what's an "original premise" is broken, you have to look for good exploration of the ideas presented.
There's a reason GT is "good ideas bad execution" and not "a good Dragon Ball show".
