  • First

    Two in a row lol.

  • Anyway just checking on things. Nice trailer.

  • Got to go enjoy lunch. See ya.

  • Elliott Blair

    I wonder if the next pack will be fused zamasu and ssb vegeto?

  • An objectively bad animator

    Meh.

  • An objectively bad animator

    Take care.

  • Black, you spinning ballerina you, pretty good moveset.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Yeah Black looks cool, but I’m not gonna buy this DLC.

  • An objectively bad animator

    Well, you can’t buy the DLC if you don’t have the game in the first place.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Bingo

  • An objectively bad animator

    Shida blessed us with ballerina Black.

    God bless his soul.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Is it 2009? Who says first anymore?

  • Oh so you are going to get the Switch version then? Since it will come with all 4 DLC packs?

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Nope. If I ever do get the game it’d be on PS4.

  • randy191993

    It will. Since it’s the last announced DLC Pack and they already announced at the first pack that SSB Vegeto and Fused Zamasu will be added as DLC. Datamining suggests we will get Goku Black Saga as Story Mode then too.

  • Too bad. You would be missing out on 3v3 local alongside the regular online stuff.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    I have one other friend who owns a Switch and he hates Dragon Ball.

  • For what reason?

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    He thinks it’s stupid. A lot of my friends do.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    And tbh, they’re not wrong.

  • Yet you enjoy the the series?

    Just because he hates the show doesn’t mean he could hate the games. Heck a lot of people hate GT but love GT content in games.

  • Damn got to get back to work. Talk to you all later.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Just because I enjoy it doesn’t make it not stupid. It’s about a boy with a monkey tail who punches people. Later on he grows up and punches aliens, then eventually punches gods. Time travel and androids are involved sometimes too.

    Nah he doesn’t care for the games either.

  • Trey Titler

    It’s honestly hard rewatching the series as an adult. Dragonball not so much as Z and beyond, but only mainly because Dragonball was never supposed to be as serious as the other series. I wouldn’t say it’s stupid though, just extremely cheesy, but hey, that’s 90’s anime for ya xD

  • Trey Titler

    so, who’s excited for E3?

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    When is that?

  • An objectively bad animator

    This year.

  • Popo ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Go away.

  • Trey Titler

    June 13-15. Not sure who’s showing when yet though.

  • Black Clark Kent

    Disappointed that bojack don’t have his full power transformation and no bojack alt outfits for trunks( long hair sleeveless jacket) and gohan(orange gi).

  • I will be if they announce Dark Cloud 3

  • Trey Titler

    Haven’t heard of that series. What’s it about?

  • Well the story is drastically different between the first and second games

  • Oncle SamGaming

    So anyone else here thinks that the Dragon Ball Super manga is way better written then the anime ?

    The last 2 chapters alone set the bar really high compared to what happened in the anime.

  • An objectively bad animator

    I’d say it’s better written as in the story makes more sense and the power scaling is much better.

    But i like the anime more, it’s overall more entertaining to me.

  • Oncle SamGaming

    Actually yeah that’s exactly what I meant xD. Everything makes way more sense. Don’t even see why they needed to pull off the Kaioken x10 in SSB in the anime since they have way simpler ways of fighting their enemies in the manga … And thank you Toyotaro for not drawing GhostBusters Zamasu -__-

  • I prefer both of them, the manga for it’s consistent plot while keeping the technical aspects of DBZ such as power scaling constant and keeping some characters in character mainly Goku.

    The anime cause of the visuals especially when a major fight comes on.

    Both of them are a hit and a miss in some places, I like how the anime handled the BoG arc, U6vU7 arc.

    Overall I would’ve said the anime was better but it turned pretty sour once it hit the Black arc cause it mainly threw aside rules about power that were established from DB and Z.

  • An objectively bad animator

    “I prefer both of them”

    You can’t prefer two things,Soul.

  • I just did.

    Goooo awaaaaay Linger, I don’t need your saas.

  • Oncle SamGaming

    Well I guess the thing is I don’t really understand why the two have to deviate so much. I mean isn’t the manga version supposed to be the ” main ” source ? I think that the fact the anime is done ” before ” the manga is the reason why there is so many differences. It confuses everybody.

    But yeah, you said it, I’m glad that at least in the manga Goku is not so stupid because seriously I cannot stand his demeanor in the anime.

  • The main source I believe is the plot outlines from Toriyama, Toyataro and Toei just expand upon it so that’s why there’s so much of a difference, one of the things the manga has it going for it is that Toriyama checks Toyataro’s storyboards, the anime sadly doesn’t have this advantage.

  • An objectively bad animator

    Akira Toriyama(the original author of Dragon Ball) gives brief outlines to both Toei(animation studio) and Toyotaro(artist and writer of the manga).The outlines are the bare bones of the arcs so both Toei and Toyotaro are free to expand upon it as they wish so long that they don’t change the main plot points.

  • Gooo away Linger, he was replying to meeeeeee!

    Let the great Soul sama handle this!

  • Oncle SamGaming

    Am I talking to two persons or one ? xD You had the same answers lol.

    Anyway thanks for clearing that up to me. But personally I think I’ll stick to the manga version story wise, I like it better. I prefer when things make sense. ( I know, NOTHING in the DB Universe makes sense …. )

  • An objectively bad animator

    My explanation was more detailed and well written.shame on you.

  • STFU! no it wasn’t! you didn’t add the Toriyama checking Toyataro thing! you didn’t even add Sakurada screwing up everything!

  • An objectively bad animator

    But i used cooler words 🙁

  • Oh, good job, you win then.

  • An objectively bad animator

    Glad we can both accept that my explanation was the superior one.

  • Haha, cause we usually discuss stuff like that constantly on here so it’s pretty much common knowledge over here

    Stick with what you like. Right now I prefer the manga as well but I like both the manga and the anime, it’s just the filler that Toei shoe horns in that I’m not so keen about.

  • You freakin’ sunava-

    I take it back!

  • Oncle SamGaming

    Aw man yeah. Don’t really understand why they put filler, the ” manga is too close so we need time ” excuse doesn’t work here since the anime comes out before the manga xD

    I mean between the Poteaufeu arc ( seriously that name -__- I’m french and I find it offensive ) and the baseball episode … I’ve suffered enough with the Shippuuden filler to get through this again in Dragon Ball Super.

  • An objectively bad animator

    The reason the anime has filler is to help production.

    Filler episodes don’t take as much effort to make as main ones so they can me mostly outsourced by other studios while the main staff works on the main arc.

  • An objectively bad animator

    I like how Black’s ki blade makes Star Wars sounds.

  • Meliodas

    The main point of this series is more about gameplay than story. One of the best series on Ps2 imo

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    In the first one this is definitely true, but I definitely feel the story in 2 is pretty compelling and good.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    The manga is personally way too condensed for me on top of I’m not the biggest fan of Toyotaro’s art.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    So Bojack doesn’t get a transformation, lame

  • No Lime Bojack?

  • Anthony_weaver86

    …..what?

  • Ryumancer

    I saw that one coming. lol

    Bamco slowly feels like it’s becoming EA and WB with this bullcrap. lol

  • Goku Black

    F*CK BOJACK! LOOK AT THAT F*CKING SPIN! MMMMMMMMMMM! -grabs sock-

  • Goku Black

    Ha. Ki…blade. xD I wanna play Kingdom Hearts now.

  • Yomi

    That goku black spin kick is… my goodness… so beautiful, so elegant.

  • Goku Black

    Dem spins….mah gaaaaawd. – Eyes shine- +O+

  • Zany

    N-NO-N-NOT BAAAD!!

  • Rodrigo Monterier

    Dimps and their stupid pain sounds
    Btw, its not even the half of the year and its already the third DLC…

  • Anthony_weaver86

    I mean I suspected it myself but was still holding my breath to see if they would prove me wrong

  • Dave Weber

    Next DLC fusion zamasu + black and bojak Transformation 5 dlc pack then merged zamasu + SPEZIAL MOVE for Trunks genkidama sword and then Trailer for xenoverse 3 Comes with vegito blue xD i predict it now xD

  • NinetalesCommander

    I’m honestly not surprised at Bojack’s lack of a transformation. With Zarbon lacking his Monster Form and Freeza and Super Buu missing some of their forms, it’s no wonder they’d do the same here.
    They really need to fix that, if you’re gonna include a character, at least have the decency to include all of what it has. If not, pick someone that doesn’t transform.

  • Koibito888

    I don’t. Along with being way too shortened and too the point, the dialogue is god awful. Toriyama is a very contextual writer even back in the days of Z he just made things happen and it took databook info and fan debate to actually figure it out. SSJ forms for instance, in Z SSJ2 was just ‘Gohan’s hidden power’ until Buu Saga and then even then it was just SSJ2 – wasn’t until the databook that we come to find out it’s, or any form’s, multiplier and it takes watching the show and seeing what they do to understand how 2 actually works, and SSJ3 is still very vague to this day. Toyble is the exact opposite, he writes very much like a fan (which is gross), blatantly explaining everything to awful amounts of detail. When Whis and Beerus collectively explained Vegeta losing 9/10ths of his power for using SSGSS consecutively it didn’t sound like those characters it sounded like a narrator, and that’s how he writes. Everyone is on his nuts because ‘he explains things’ but he does it in a way that’s not DBZ, it’s not good.

    On top of that it’s really annoying that he contradicted both the movies, anime, and his own RoF manga on how SSJG works just so he could bring it back for a plot point that doesn’t really need SSJG. In fact the strategy employed in said last two chapters by Vegeta makes more sense if he wasn’t using SSJG.

    The manga is very much like fanfiction while the anime actually feels like Toriyama’s work.

  • Koibito888

    Well one problem is Toyble screwed up how SSJG works. He contradicted the anime and his own prior work by having them able to get a powerup from SSJG.

    Not to mention it’s a simpler way of fighting but takes far more complex explanations to establish all of the information needed to inform what the manga did, while the anime just sensibly reintroduced a thing we already knew about making it feel more natural to DB.

  • I would’ve been satisfied if they just added his full power form (along with his galactic buster), since that’s pretty much what he’s known for. It’s like adding SSJ Broly but not LSSJ Broly, it makes no sense. Unfortunately Bamco are the anime licensed games version of EA and like to screw us over for more profit.

  • Trainwreck

    The writing in the manga does seem better and more consistent when compared to the anime, but given how terrible the writing is in the anime, that’s not really saying much.
    If anything I’d read the manga over the anime because the manga doesn’t have the pacing of a 100 year old snail, as it cuts away with most of the useless crap.

  • Ryumancer

    Agreed.

  • Yang Guo

    So how many dlc pack is there going to be

  • Koibito888

    I wonder if the level cap will be raised to like 95 or if they are just waiting for pack 4 to shoot from 90 to 99

  • scardro

    I was hoping for a Black Goku sword super like Trunks’ sword attacks 🙁

  • scardro

    Don’t forget the slug doesn’t have his

  • The Barnacle’s Whim

    Huh…that’s kinda how I feel about the SSBK x10 vs SSJG debate.

  • Koibito888

    What, you agree and feel that SSGSSKx10 was simpler and more natural? Or are you saying the opposite, that you feel somehow it took less effort to reintroduce SSJG?

    I would like to hear your reasoning if the latter.

  • Koibito888

    The manga’s writing is terrible. The dialogue is incredibly overexpositional to the point that sometimes it doesn’t even sound like the characters as much as it sounds like a narrator. This is completely the opposite of Toriyama’s writing style. The anime isn’t even any more inconsistent than Z was, it’s just Toriyama’s a contextual writer. He makes things happen and fans usually understand via piecing together info and later interviews and databooks. Fans are just so lazy now that some fanboy comes along and rants out all his explanations in a manga and for some reason people love it. I get it if these people have this problem with the original DBZ but then that means Super is not for those people because DBZ is not for those people. Super is for the people that want to see DBZ continue like DBZ – in Toriyama’s style.

  • Koibito888

    Don’t forget the anime also sticks to Toriyama’s style of writing much more and it also serves to give the character development and exposure that the manga just barely glances over.

    Also a lot from the Black Arc doesn’t ruin power as much as people think.

  • That’s your take on it not mine, I find the manga much more closer to AT’s writing.
    Oh yes it did. You’re free to think otherwise, I couldn’t care less.

  • Koibito888

    It’s not though. Toriyamas style is distinctly non expositional. Especially in the case of ssj forms and the like.

    Literally having Whis so blatantly explain the ‘not able to exert 1/10 of vegeta’s power’ with beerus following up with a ‘so what you mean to say’ paragraph was directly against toriyamas writing style. Not only that but it’s a very common writing style of fanfiction for dbz due to fan fantasy of having things explained for once.

    Not to mention that whole bit contradicted how ssjg actually works in both the movies, anime, and toybles prior work.

    And it really didn’t. Trunks’ form made sense, blacks power made sense, those were just fine in the anime. And forms in the u6 and 7 tournament in the manga made no sense as I mentioned above.

    those things were very much not like toriyama’s work at all.

  • The Barnacle’s Whim

    Oh, I was agreeing with you, man. I preferred the Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x10 as the better choice.

  • Koibito888

    Yeah definitely. I mean regardless of what anyone thinks of each move/ability/form the fact of the matter is it took a lot of new and sudden, out of nowhere explanation to be inserted to explain why SSJG made sense to use here and it still contradicts how SSJG is supposed to work so it ended up not making sense, while with SSGSSKx10 all the had to say was Kaioken and we get it, using a pre-established move and only minor confirmation of stuff we thought anyway (like how using it on regular SSJ could be harmful). It just fit naturally. So objectively it was the better move.

    And then the big thing it built up to still didn’t need SSJG. I mean Vegeta could have conserved even MORE energy and taken Black MORE off guard if he was doing the same thing but from base form instead. I don’t care how much he trained SSJG (which not only should he not have, but he shouldn’t have it now even if he did before), any transformation will always burn even the slightest bit more Ki than base form. It really did just feel like Toyble liked SSJG and did everything he could to bring it back. If that’s the case that’s awful.

    Subjectively though it just looked and felt so much cooler. That aura, how freakin’ hard he went on Hit, that fight was way more amazing in the anime.

    Problem is Toyble keeps doing this stuff. He keeps overexplaining things, skipping character development and buildup, doing all these things that are just not like Toriyama but some of the fans are eating it up.

  • The Barnacle’s Whim

    Yeah, the Goku/Hit fight in the anime was FAR more intense. I agree.

  • Trainwreck

    I agree that the manga has terrible writing, but I find the writing in Super to be worse.
    I also agree that Super isn’t anymore inconsistent than Z, but I’ve never thought that Z was particularly consistent in the first place.
    I’ve also been under the long standing belief that an anime and manga should be able to stand on it’s own merits alone, so those interviews and databooks can go take a hike.

  • NinetalesCommander

    ..Pardon? Slug starts transformed, not the other way around.

  • Koibito888

    How? The manga literally foregoes character development, has all it’s characters completely unnaturally overexplaining things, rushes everything, contradicts FAR worse than the anime and contradicts in areas more important – things Toriyama wasn’t inconsistent about, and completely goes opposite from Toriyama’s style. Sometimes even the characters are contradictory to themselves. The anime does none of these things and honestly these are about the worst things one can do at all to a DBZ project so I fail to see how the anime could be worse.

    Okay exactly so then there is no complaint. But I do have to say Z is far more consistent than people give it credit for, especially when it comes to transferring from it to Super. There were a lot of things in Z that Super calls back to that are things you could figure out long ago by paying attention to detail from Z, subtle things like Goku’s power before SSJG, the design of SSJG itself, the unnatural limit surpassing nature of SSJ2, how Kaioken could/would interact with SSJ, a lot of these rather subtle things Toriyama was extra consistent on. Z wasn’t terribly inconsistent in certain degrees like some fans claim, but yeah Super is no more inconsistent than it but the manga is far more inconsistent on more important things.

    Okay then you believe that Z’s lack of info without interviews and databooks is just fine? That means it’s how it should be. The manga TRIES to be more ‘consistent’ by throwing all this overexplained info to the fans but not only is that info contradictory a lot of the time (which I don’t understand how people don’t realize that) but it’s not like DBZ at all – it very much is like a fanfiction while Super actually feels like Toriyama’s work. That makes the anime better by default honestly. Anything part of a source material absolutely needs to feel like that source material, the anime succeeds in this while the manga fails horribly, so it’s not more consistent compared to the anime at all.

  • Trainwreck

    I disagree with lots of the first paragraph. I find the pacing of the manga more preferable than an anime series that takes 100+ episodes to complete, and I think the manga isn’t overexplaining things, though I agree that the explanations given are far from satisfactory.

    I don’t think an anime that should be standing on it’s own merits alone should be relying on databooks, so to answer your question, I don’t believe Zs lack of info is fine, just the opposite, I think it’s pretty bad. I also think Toriyama is a pretty bad writer. Since I don’t think Toriyama is any good, I don’t agree with your assertion that Super feeling like Toryiamas work makes Super better by default, if anything I’d prefer Super to move as far away from Toriyamas style as possible and try to be more consistent with itself to help it stand on it’s own merits, rather than trying to be consistent with something that’s 25 years old and awful to begin with. I imagine as a fan of DBZ and Toriyama your values probably differ to mine when it comes to what’s important to keep consistent.
    Either way, discussing which of the two is more consistent is like discussing what’s the least smelly out of a cat or a dog turd; they’re both pretty crappy and it matters very little.

  • Koibito888

    To be real, regardless of preference of pacing in general about an anime, this is DragonBall. Not only is this DragonBall but this is the thing no one thought would happen, canon DB written by Toriyama. It NEEDS to be more than a passing fad here and gone after a few months, it needs to be somewhat comparable to Z in length and how long it stays around at least. I mean even if you prefer a faster pacing one can’t claim the pacing of the manga is ‘good’ objectively, it’s too fast. Maybe you prefer too fast to too slow but it doesn’t change the fact that it is in fact too fast. To be real too slow is better because at least it’s around longer and has room for character development and buildup to events, even if it’s too slow, that’s still better than being lacking.

    The thing is though it’s not like that info isn’t there, it’s not just blurted out. Yeah we don’t have the numbers but context explains these things. Spoken word says absolutely nothing about how SSJ2 works other than ‘Gohan’s hidden power’ and ‘Goku trained’, but you can just watch to understand that all Gohan did was literally the same thing as SSJ1 – having a pain of loss moment to spark the transformation. Use logic and it really only makes sense if you have to master SSJ1 to do that, look at it that way and you realize SSJ2 is just a trick, getting SSJ1 to feel like base form (which was stated as how mastering SSJ feels like) so that the same natural response can happen again, just on SSJ1 already. Context hints that one can’t master SSJ2 and it’s only sensible from that point that it’s because SSJ2 is just a trick and not a natural thing. SSJ3 has a lot of stuff like this too on it and the extra info is not needed, DBZ DOES stand on it’s own. Contextually if one pays attention to detail they can know all of that just by watching it. Do interviews talk about this later? Yes, but it only serves to confirm the info that can already be gained there. Does the databook give an exact number? Yeah but not only do we not need to know it, it only further just makes the prior info make sense. Trunks’ new form is the exact same, given every little bit of context shown for SSJG, SSGSS, AND Trunks’ new form, one can tell exactly how all of those forms work without blatant explanation needed, it’s just right there in context.

    But I see your problem now, you just don’t like how DBZ is written. Well that’s the problem, DBZ just isn’t for you then. It’s not your thing. But the thing is, DBZ IS a lot of people’s thing. The things that make DB, DB are why most people like it. They shouldn’t change what makes it DBZ’s style. I mean why should they try to change what makes a thing that thing? I mean hell forget respecting the series or doing it for the fans for a second, that’s just a bad business decision. Why do you think it became such a huge advertisement and success for anime to stick to the manga? It became a fad because it just makes sense to make something for the people who already like it, and it became a success because obviously it’s the people who already like it. Then remembering for a second that yes, a source material should ALWAYS be respected and Super should very much be made for the fans of DBZ, and it’s just silly to even suggest they should change it from what made it DBZ. Seriously if you just don’t care for DBZ’s writing then Super is just not made for you, that doesn’t make it bad.

  • scardro

    Yeah he’s not a giant

  • scardro

    Lord Slug doesn’t transform into his giant form in this game

  • NinetalesCommander

    That’s not the same as Bojack.
    Bojack starts in his base form but does not transform, Slug is the exact opposite, starts transformed but doesn’t have his base form.

  • scardro

    Slug is not in his giant form in this game what are you talking about

    Dammit, I forgot how to.

  • Trainwreck

    Again, I disagree with a lot of that, especially the first paragraph which I completely disagree with, but alas, it would be awfully silly of me to delve into details about a topic which I’ve now likened to a comparison between cat turds and dog turds, so I’ll spare you the boring wall of text that’s almost as long-winded as a 100 episode long anime.

  • Koibito888

    Point is if DBZ already wasn’t what you liked then Super isn’t for you. Super is meant to be the canon continuation from the man himself, it’s supposed to be like DBZ for DBZ fans, it’s not supposed to change things or be different it’s supposed to be DBZ.

    And again it is a fact that all that info IS there in context, it DOES stand alone without databook info or interviews, those just confirm the context outright but the info is already there in series without needing walls of unnatural dialogue.

  • Koibito888

    Also lol ‘consistent’ and ‘keeping with Goku’s character’. I too remember when Goku rathered to know Magetta’s weakness so Vegeta would have the advantage in the fight, consistent… Right… lol. Or when SSJG didn’t work as it has in every other media including Toyble’s previous one. Oh so consistent~

  • Trainwreck

    No need to repeat yourself buddy, I got the points you were making the first time, I just don’t agree with a lot of them.

  • Koibito888

    I just don’t see your logic. Like, obviously a lot of people like DBZ for what it is (that’s an understatement), when making a new thing, the best course of action is to cater to the ones who are into that fandom, the people who like it. It makes the most money and guarantees the most fans. The best business decision is to deliver more of what is already liked. If you don’t like DBZ because of it’s entire writing it literally makes no sense why you’re even here talking about it/watching Super enough to have an opinion. You just told me the entire writing style of DBZ was crap, so DBZ is not for you. Many, many, many people like DBZ, many people don’t have that same complaint, those are the people DBZ is for and as such those are the people Super is for, so this idea that you seem to have expected more from Super, that it should be anything but DBZ, that makes absolutely no sense.

    And you can disagree with the info being there but you’d be incorrect, I can cite you many examples of things that went unexplained but were there in context, just like you said, sparing you the giant wall of text. It is there and that is a fact whether you agree with it or not is all I was trying to get across by repeating that part.

  • Still much better than the anime ¯_(ツ)_/¯ and I know that makes you mad cause I’ve seen you railing on people for liking the manga for it.

    So eh, you can have your little opinion and I can have mine but the manga is far superior at this point to the anime, also let’s not forget AT actually checks Toyataro’s storyboards, the anime doesn’t have this luxury.

  • Koibito888

    Not really. Contradicting the entirety of the main character’s personality in a single sentence and going back on everything SSJG had been shown to be even in his own previous work are far bigger contradictions than anything the anime left unexplained. It’s also a fact that Toriyama never overexplained things, he always left things up to context. So it is a straight up fact that what Toyble is doing is the opposite of Toriyama’s style.

    Also checking storyboards is not the same as checking the finished product. It means he checks the plot points Toyble wants to write in not the dialogue and imagery specifically – nor is Toriyama as particular about the inner workings of things like forms as fans are, but that still doesn’t change the consistency of it in literally everything until the manga. He has however made statements on how he gets to watch the things they do like the fights and the like that he can’t put into writing – so yes he does check over the anime too.

    It might be opinionated on which we like better but it is a hard fact the the manga isn’t following Toriyama’s style or else it wouldn’t be explaining so much, instead leaving it to context, and that it’s contradicted an entire form. Nothing the anime did is that big or blatant of a contradiction to something that important to the series.

    I don’t rail on people for liking the manga, I rail on people for not seeing the facts. People can like it all they want I just wish they would admit it’s faults instead of acting like it’s doing all these great things the anime isn’t. It’s like GT, like it all you want but at least admit how contradictory it was and all the problems with it, and admit that it’s non canon instead of trying to awkwardly fit it in as if being canon is something to defend about it. I mean I do it for the anime too, I admit the anime screwed up making out Zamasu’s whole thing to be like a time loop even though that’s impossible and I admit the manga did well showing he saw the Godtube fight and didn’t have that first fight between Goku and Black. However, this is nothing compared to the huge contradictions and horridly overexplaining the manga does. As for the claims against the anime, the powerscaling makes sense to me and Trunks’ new form makes the most sense out of all the things people complain about. I could even explain those things as well – just sparing you an even bigger wall of text of info you didn’t ask for lol.

    If you like it, that’s fine, but don’t try and pretend like these are things in line with Toriyama’s style or that these HUGE contradictions don’t exist. Just admit they’re there and that you happen to like this difference from actual Toriyama written DBZ. I mean I’m not telling you right now to admit anything I’m using the general ‘you’ but that’s why I rail on people, for denying that these things are things when you can just look at the original manga to see clear as day that they are.

    Lol and I want your next post to actually explain how you think changing the formula for a source material widely loved is even remotely a good idea beyond your personal preference.

    And to try and disprove that that info is in fact there, or consent that I’m correct that it is.
