Far from being a retcon. That information is one that cannot be taken into consideration whatsoever or you'll find yourself in the "headcanon" zone with your own new years in order to "fit" that information (and even then, I think there will still be problems).
If by "three sagas have been skipped" you include Movie 15, then no. I won't give credit to Dragon Ball Super because it wasn't that series that came up with that "story". The same goes to Movie 14. What we see in Dragon Ball Super are merely retellings of something else, not original works. The movies were branded as Dragon Ball Z stuff, therefore they are "Z material". That makes only Universe 6 saga, Future Trunks saga and Universe Survival saga as a legit Dragon Ball Super material.MechaTrunks wrote: ↑Mon Mar 23, 2020 3:34 amI think you're being a bit unfair here. In Super there are 3 sagas that have been skipped in the manga for marketing reasons, but are still part of the story.
And now we're having the Moro saga in the manga, so even not counting the unadapted stories it would be 2 tournaments & 2 sagas with plot, like in Dragon Ball.
I won't consider Moro saga and Dragon Ball Super Broly because it's manga and movie-only respectively, so far. They're not the "main media" for a general audience. I'm sticking to the original anime run, which is from 2016 to 2018 - Universe 6 saga to Universe Survival saga. The same circumstance I'm considering for Dragon Ball, just its anime.
I didn't watch in its entirely but from all I saw, it didn't really feel like a battle royale at all. Do characters even disturb other fights? Does Goku fires a Kamehameha at his opponent, his opponent dodges it and it hits one or other characters, for example? I don't remember seeing anything like that, and well, for a battle royale with a lot of characters involved, things like that should have been pretty common to see. It seemed a very organized "simultaneous fights" rather than a proper battle royale.
