  • Alexander Giumą

    And Bleach BRAVE SOULS just reached over 20 millions downloads. You forgot to mention that or are you just simply ignoring Bleach at all now.

  • Trey Titler

    To be fair, they barely covered Bleach when it was still active. Not surprising they didn’t mention it.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Bleach is over, let it die.

  • Bullza

    DBZ is just on a completely different level of popularity.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    It’s almost like it’s an anime that’s been around for nearly 30 years

  • Bullza

    Right because age = popularity….

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    It definitely helps a lot.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Idk let me google it.

  • Just a shame popularity doesn’t equal greatness…

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Lol bro be careful what you write because you know certain fans of other series like to hating on Dragon ball for no reason

  • Zachary Saiyan

    And it’s a shame that you are a hater

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Who said he was a hater?

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    The series gives people plenty of reasons to hate on it, a lot of the hate it gets is deserved tbh. It’s not for no reason.

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Dude go on about your business

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Great rebuttal, I really see your point. You truly changed my point of view. You’re a master debater.

  • Zachary Saiyan

    I just don’t want to talk to the child is this person so going back to business bro

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    What.

  • Linger

    Speaking of Dokkan Battle the 150 million downloads event in Global was pretty bad.Maybe it was just my luck but i expected at least one remarkable card in the 10 or so multi summons i did.It’s a 150 million downloads special event for crying out loud make the drop rates for good cards better.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    What is Dokan battle exactly? Like what do you do on it

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Go on about your business Bro I don’t want to talk to you fam

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    This is my business fam.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Everything on disqus is my business, do you not see the verified account symbol?

  • Linger

    I hate to bring up Rhymestyle but it’s the first review i found of the game and i can’t be bothered to look for a better one.

    I do recommend the game to you if you have a phone.

    youtube.Com/watch?v=y37HoXiU8OU

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Normally I throw up when I hear the name Rhymestyle, but since you linked the video I’ll trust you.

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Don’t got nothing better to do with your life so childish

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Why do you assume that? Because I’m talking to you on here? Well you’re doing the exact same so…

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Nothing exact same thing I don’t go on here hating on other series because popular like you do

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Yeah man, the guy with the Dragon Ball picture clearly hates Dragon Ball…

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    gotta say the new Naruto game looks cool thank god cc2 is not making it or dimps Idk if I will get it though

  • Linger

    If anybody cares Shida confirmed that he hasn’t worked on anything DB related since the new opening so don’t expect him to show up any time soon.

  • dbz

    this game looks great i like the combos in naruto shippuden ultimate ninja blazing

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Shida was the animator who worked on the episode with SSB Goku and Trunks vs Black and Zamasu right? After Vegeta got stabbed and they had that nice tag team fight

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    I downloaded it, based on his video the game seems pretty cool for a mobile game.

  • Linger

    Hes worked on episode 57,66 and the new opening,he also worked on the original Dragon Ball and Z a lot.I think hes a slow animator so if he stars working on DBS today then his cut will probably appear after 8 episodes or so.

    sakugabooru.Com/data/954f0937472b444747edf947372cfb4c.mp4

  • dbz

    yeah i like the gameplay style in this new Naruto game

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    It’s a shame that he hasn’t worked on anything recently, I like when he animates the fights. Oh well, the animation for the recent episodes have been pretty good anyway.

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Dude just because you have a DB character pic that doesn’t mean that you or any other person can be a troll people have pic of certain characters all the time in different video or websites troll saying stuff like this show is trash

  • Linger

    Just found out about this.Someone asked him on twitter if he would want to work on DBS again and he replied with “I will definitely return to Dragon Ball”

    I’m glad he has emotional attachment to the series.It’s good to have an industry giant like him working on it.

    twitter.Com/naoV47/status/850375250806063105

  • Hider Xera

    AfroSenju said he thinks the game should have character creation.

  • Quest(lost, hungry magician)

    My pic is also a dbz pic….

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    It takes a troll to know a troll broski

  • Is that so? Pretty sure that term refers to someone claiming they dislike something that they’ve never experienced, just for the sake of it; that’s not what this is, this is an accurate judgement of a show that I’ve seen myself, multiple different times. And Dragon Ball Z, does not fit in the category of the greatest shows of all time, in fact I’d say it doesn’t even fit in with the shows that are considered good, and this is not derived from my opinion but rather from what the show actually offers.

    Also, I appreciate that you went and mimiced my comment in yours, that’s something I’d do myself, but at least copy it right, just takes away from the effect.

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Smfh

  • Yea, I saw that too but, I don’t feel this game should be the one to have that in, I feel like they need all their focus to be on building a solid foundation with the gameplay, then add that in as more of a side-feature in a later game in the series. Just my thoughts on it, but I do believe that if done well, character creation can be something great, especially for Naruto.

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Who said that I thought Dragonball Z was the greatest show of all time is not the greatness it haves flaws but when you haters love to bash on the show because of DBZ flaws in don’t and never try to bring up the original Dragonball which have a great story

  • I think it shouldn’t it just will make the game look sh1t imo

  • Dragon Ball Z is one of, if not the, most popular show ever, by my statement of it’s popularity not equaling greatness, I am implying that the show is not the best, your comment in reply to that has great evidence that would lead me to beleive you thought the opposite of my statement.
    Follow me?

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    <3

  • It’s just gambling. Some people spend hundreds of dollars and they get sh1t while someone with just 5 dragon stones gets SS4 Goku

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    who gives a sh** lmao

  • Dokkan Battle?

  • Damn auto correct.

  • No,Shinobi Striker

  • Anyone here play Pokemon Duel though?
    The Pokemon mobile game other than Pokemon Go

  • Zachary Saiyan

    Get where you come from

  • Hider Xera

    The people who responded?

  • Hider Xera

    If that ever happens they need to make Uchiha a non accessible clan or make it really hard to unlock

  • Hider Xera

    What Gent said, but imagine Dokkan Battle with cahracter creation I’d cry

  • Hider Xera

    We’ll have to wait and see some people already think it’s going to suck

  • He’s blocked, so I don’t know what he said.

  • I played Pokémon Indigo.

  • Hider Xera

    Shinobi Striker

  • Oh then f**K no.

  • Hider Xera

    They would have to make an original story or something like during the 3rd ninja war or something

  • Or just… no clans

    My thoughts on this would be to have you choose your ninja’s home village, and that’d be what determines skills, combos, missions, etc.
    I don’t get why everyone just assumes that it’d have to have Uchiha’s running rampant.

  • I do NOT want character creation in a mainline Naruto game.

  • Hider Xera

    Why not?

  • Plus their extinct. So they aren’t a clan.

  • Hider Xera

    Most people want clans that’s why

  • Because that’s not what Naruto is to me. One Piece, sure.

  • I wonder what the DLC would be for Shinobi Striker.

  • I don’t think so, in fact I believe the majority would argue against them, since they’d all basically be Uchiha anyway

  • Hider Xera

    One Piece character creation you are a rare person who ate 2 fruit and survived

  • Hider Xera

    The best jutsu are clan locked like Shadow possesion and expansion

  • Hider Xera

    The rest of the Boruto story

  • It’s not that bad mate, it’s just all about how well they implement it, if they go the Xenoverse route, then yea it’s bad, but if they go the Ultimate Tenkaichi route, then that’s a nice added feature.

  • Quit ruining everything.

  • Hider Xera

    You said One Piece could have it

  • I still think it’d be a way better idea to have villages over clans, and the villages could determine your chakra nature, and you’d do bonus damage by using a jutsu that matches your nature, there’s just so many ideas I can see if they were to go with villages. Also, with clans, you’re limited to just the Leaf Village, pretty much, since we don’t know many other village’s clans.

  • Trey Titler

    I’ve messed with it a little. downloaded it a few weeks ago. it’s a fun little strategy game, but I haven’t delved too far into it yet.

  • Yea, it’s pretty fun, and I love the strategy sense behind it. Just wish there was a better way at getting EX’s/Good figures without buying gems, just for a chance of getting 1. Haven’t played it since the Deoxys update though, wonder which new figures they added since then

  • Not with the scientific ninja tool.

  • Not by earing two devil fruits.

  • Hider Xera

    Imagine the power of Luffy combined with the power of Akainu

  • Hider Xera

    In other news. I returned to Dokkan Battle for the first time in months and pulled like 10 ssr characters I didn’t have yet. Guess my luck is off the charts.

  • Linger

    Which characters did you get?

  • No!

  • uhMayzedHD

    I’m good not a mobile person. Only time I play on my phone is when I am waiting for my hair to be cut.

  • Paul Watson

    But Its An Online Battle Royal Game, XD They Didn’t Mention Anything About Story.

  • There will be a story.

  • Hider Xera

    Super Saiyan God Goku the one with dragon fist, Hit, Gogeta, SSJ 3 Goku, Ssj Goten (didn’t know he had an ssr), SSB Goku (I already have SSBK Goku so I was like meh),Perfect Cell, Kid Buu, and I think that’s it so 8

  • uhMayzedHD

    To me mobile games are cancer and that is affecting the console market with there microtranactions and I am afraid console will turn full mobile in 2020 and got people in the comment sections like “There not forcing you to buy it (< This is the most stupid thing on the internet… Like duh)", "It's optinional" and "Rage in comment section saying fuuck this game but still buying it"… Don't they know there action effects everyone else. [Insert Studio Here] What we made 2 millions off microtranactions let's add more. (Not all are bad like Overwatch for example)

  • Merged Super sand Legend

    microtransaction is the only way apps make money
    ads are usless without wifi and setting a price to a game won’t do because people will just easly install it cracked anyway

  • uhMayzedHD

    Everyone that has a smart phone should have internet plan on there phone and when this Pokemon Go thing was trending it was all over + all the social media.

  • Merged Super sand Legend

    people are annoyed by ads
    they just turn off wifi and then you have no ads
    even if the game requires you to be online those kind of games have microtransaction and no ads

  • dbz

    welp I was going to read one piece but I think im going to watch the episodes instead its more interesting than reading the manga I watched dragon ball z and Naruto might aswell watch one piece

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    You can play most games without paying the micro transactions though, they’re not mandatory.

  • uhMayzedHD

    Not all people will are like the dude from Flappy Bird made 50K a day

  • uhMayzedHD

    Yeah a lot do but some just go over the top with it like racing games you do 2-3 races you gotta wait hours or day or you can just pay money to start right now

  • Merged Super sand Legend

    yeaa but games that are good have mandatory microtransaction
    there are only a few games that are good and don’t have them

  • I think it is much faster reading one piece manga then watching it stretch a single chapter for over 20 minutes. I get like 4 chapters done in 10 minutes.

  • dbz

    yeah I might read it then since its faster even tho I prefer to watch it

  • uhMayzedHD

    How was episode one of Boruto? Scale 1-10 and is it worth watching?

  • Merged Super sand Legend

    the games that are the most worth it on mobile are games that were ported from other platforms like the gta series
    or bully from rockstar and other series too

  • dbz

    half of the people who play pokemon go aren’t even pokemon fans

  • dbz

    I liked episode one

  • 8 out of 10. It’s worth to watch.

  • Merged Super sand Legend

    i only play the new yugioh game
    its fun

  • uhMayzedHD

    I know they do things that are trending. I didn’t like Pokemon Go I found it the bootleg version of handleheld version.

  • Linger

    Pokemon Go is handheld.

  • dbz

    I liked it its cool that you could catch pokemon out side

  • uhMayzedHD

    I talking about Pokemon games in general that came out on handleheld

  • Linger

    Pokemon Go is one of the Pokemon games in general that came out in handheld.

  • uhMayzedHD

    I never heard of it to be honest.

  • Linger

    How do you have an opinion about something you’ve never heard of before?

  • uhMayzedHD

    I heard about Pokemon Go – Mobile but not Handleheld. I was comparing Pokemon Go to like Pokemon Platinum

  • Linger

    Mobile is handheld.

  • uhMayzedHD

    Ok

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Well there weren’t any random aliens or anything like the war arc, so there’s that.

  • Linger

    Definition of handheld
    : held in the hand; especially : designed to be operated while being held in the hand

    In case you had any doubt.

  • uhMayzedHD

    I didn’t know they where aliens to be honest tell someone told me I think it was Liger told me they where

  • uhMayzedHD

    I believe you
    I stick to calling phones mobile devices

  • Jellal Fernandes

    let me eat that booty

  • uhMayzedHD

    Question of the day!
    Is a hotog a sandwich?

  • dbz

    anyone watch star wars rebels

  • Hider Xera

    Not really

  • dbz

    yeah I still don’t know if you watch it or not

  • Is hamburger, a sandwich?

  • 10/10 , it is worth watching

  • dbz

    10 I would give it a 8

  • ;-;

  • Konjiki no Yami

    No, it was 100/10.

  • Linger

    Managed to pulled Super 17 on Dokkan Battle.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    100/10 is still 10.

  • I don’t care.

  • It’s more Naruto/10

    Aka garbage and not worth your time.

  • Tsuna Sawada

    Who honestly gives a single f*ck

  • Billy Townhouse

    Wow. At the end of the Naruto Shippuden Ninja Blazing game trailer, they mix the main theme in Naruto that they use often with some hip-hop sound. Does anyone have the link for that?

  • Those are hard to come by.

  • Ryumancer

    I wouldn’t say “plenty”, but there are a few or several.

  • Ryumancer

    That saying is true, but I’d apply that more to Spongebob or One Piece as opposed to Dragonball.

  • Ryumancer

    Yeah I’d say it’s dropped off of the HST and Dragonball took its slot.

  • Hider Xera

    Not really = I’ve seen some clips, but not a whole episode

  • Ryumancer

    This is one of the very few times I would agree with @GoldLiger:disqus. The manga gets to the good plot points and climax much quicker than the crap anime does.

  • Hider Xera

    Lucky

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    UT had it way worse than Xenoverse.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Shida has hella attachment for the series, he’s been working on it since the original Dragon Ball anime.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    In this case, yes. Dragon Ball became the influential work that it did because it brought a lot of modern shonen elements to life that didn’t exist before it.

  • Gotta disagree there, yea the game was worse, but the way they implemented the custom characters was perfect, the whole Custom Characters are everything was a terrible decision

  • dbz

    oh ok

  • Bravo! Is he a good card.

  • dbz

    looks like im reading the manga instead of watching the anime when I finish reading the manga im probably going watch the anime

  • Linger

    His stats are pretty good.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    It’s not even custom character per se, it’s custom male Saiyan. Yeah, you could swap out your combos for other mentors’ combos, but at the same time you could only make a male Saiyan.

    Also I had gripes with the medium and small Saiyans when they went Super Saiyan. When characters that don’t have their eye lines drawn in all the way go Super Saiyan, the defining line gets drawn all the way in. Examples being Goku, Gohan, and Goten. While the heavy hero always had his eyes drawn in all the way, the medium and light heroes just got model recolors and that was it.

    i.gyazo.Com/2b18987ebdad6d802e9f8c025ac6f907.png

    Disgusting.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Merriam-Webster defines a hot dog as a sandwich but I disagree with that.

  • I’m not talking about the scale of what was in the creation, but rather how it wasn’t the main focus of the entire game.

  • Trainwreck

    To me console games are cancer and that is affecting the pc market with there dlc and I am afraid pc will turn full console in 2020 and got people in the comment section like “There not forcing you to buy it” blah blah blah blah, I’m copying this guy who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, blah blah blah blah, his grammar is terrible, blah blah blah, something something, console games dragging down pc games, blah blah something blah.

  • Trainwreck

    There are a lot of games similar to Dokkan, I play something called “Fate Grand Order” quite a lot which is a one of those similar games.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    *fart* what the phuq was that?

  • Rasta Boi

    Every time i try to download dokkan battle & try to play,it wont install or load,any one else having this problem ?

  • Ryumancer

    I’d say “don’t waste your time”. But what you choose is YOUR…choice. O_o

    Sure, go with that. lol

  • Tsuna Sawada

    ??????????

  • Linger

    Normally i don’t like math jokes but this one was good.

  • Ryumancer

    Hamburger is definitely a sandwich.

  • uhMayzedHD

    Console isn’t cancer PC and Console have to coexist. There have to be options to go to if you don’t like that platform echo system.

    Only thing cancerious to the gaming community are fanboys

  • Then hot dog is a sandwich too

  • Ryumancer

    Hamburgers and Hot Dogs are nothing alike though. The bread that uses them is different and the types of meat used are different too.

    The formula is completely unique for each meal.

  • Rodrigo Monterier

    If you’re feeling like a loser, just go check this article

  • And the bread used for Sandwich is different…

  • Ryumancer

    True. But a burger has a piece of bread (bun) on top and bottom. The hot dog has pretty much one big bun that is cut and spread open.

  • NerfectX

    I would also show Bleach: Brave Souls, comparing to Dokkan Battle and Ultimate Ninja Blazing, it’s way better because you can actually control your characters and fight for real.
