Who knew 8 minutes could be so jam packed with craziness!

This series is incredibly frustrating. Stuff like Jiren’s return or Goku training with the Grand Priest are really big deals that should be saved for Super itself, not a nonsensical promotional series.

Like, Heart has an interesting motivation in theory, but we’ll never get to see it done well because the idea is already taken.

I hear ya. They even ruined UI by bringing it back so soon. Movie had the balls not to do it yet thanks to Heroes whenever it does make it's grand return in the main anime it will be diminished. It's even on the KV for this promotional arc ffs.

I don't get it, Heroes has a lot of things it can mess around with so why are they messing around with DBS stuff?

Because DBS is new and popular, so they're capitalizing on it.

Being that episode is part of "Season 2" I sorta expected it to be better but it was painfully boring but, you know, I still watch it 'cause it's Dragon Ball. They take ages to release another episode and then it's just.. this. That said, there were some interesting things they did but it was ruined by how frustratingly tedious it was, imo.

8mins might not be enough but they sure could make the episodes a lot better by making it entertaining.

Why should they not mess around with DBS stuff? It's a hot product and they should squeeze every drop from it. That's only good thing not only for us but also for Dragon Ball. They get more money so they can create more cool things like another great movie or another tv series.

Besides, you act like you have no idea what is DBH. It was always like that - mess around with various stuff and create 'what if' scenarios. I understand that some people are pissed that this promotional anime is very short - but IT IS JUST A PROMOTIONAL STUFF. You don't have to watch it, it's just to promote the game, it's not canon in any way. So all the cool stuff like UI, Jiren's return or possible Goku's training with Grand Priest in Super WILL NOT BE DIMINISHED because it's not happening in the proper story/timeline. Just chill out.

The manga/comic book version of Super Dragon Ball Heroes is heading to Spain sometime in 2019.

I know right. Heroes is nonsense that knows it's nonsense. I don't expect much from it because it's just trying to sell me on a card game at the end of the day. I'd rather it remain junk food if it means the proper series gets all the better treatment. Especially after the TOP shit. Why bother giving it stronger resources when that can go to better shows. My only actual condolence goes to not having Dio's VA on the main show. Hopefully he gets a big villain role there some day.
Why Dragon Ball Consistency in something such as power levels matter!

In the manga he expresses some dissatisfaction with Zamasu killing mortals unnecessarily, but shrugs Hit's seeming death off as simply another sacrifice on the path to utopia, so my reading was that he's admitting to a level of hypocrisy/self-contradiction in that he wants the freedom of all mortals long-term, but is willing to kill them in the immediate to achieve it.

The old "I'm going to make a perfect world for even if I'd have no right to live in it myself" kind of motivation.

It does seem kind of inevitable that he and Zamasu are going to have a more permanent falling out at some point though.

Not really. This series pretty perfectly reflects Yamamuro's modern design sense, they're really made for each other. Not that I really want it to continue looking bad by any means, I'm not that petty, but Shintani's talents should be spent improving the aesthetic of better, more important Dragon Ball productions.

I do. He doesn't even need to be the animation supervisor, just design.

Right now I'm just hoping when Super 2.0 appears they continue to use Shintani's character designs from the movie for the series. I'm still worried they won't.

Considering the length of the production schedule at this point and the fact that Shintani is also otherwise nowhere to be found I am confident that his designs will continue to be used, especially given how completely devoted Yamamuro has been to Super Dragon Ball Heroes.

Many thanks! That does make me feel hopeful.

Toei will not give a flying fuck about what happens in Heroes when they're taking Super 2.0 into consideration. Heroes is Bandai's baby and only ever go to Toei when they need some cheap visual promotion of it.

Better question: Will the powerscaling in either of the series be consistent enough to actually tell?

No Dragon Ball series has "consistent power scaling". Everyone's power level has always been, and is always going to be "as strong as we think will make this fight good".
