This is fucking hilarious. Seriously, why do people hate DBS again? This is the best the series has been since early DB.

muh DBZ big fights and shit. but they forget that the dragonball series has always been comedy first

Because it's badly animated and even the humor isn't as tight as it was once. And despite having next to no fights the humans still do jack shit.

I'd rather have those two there in some forced scenario over all the other moments where it's just Vegeta and Beerus stretching that one gag. The slice of life bits were the perfect moment to reintroduce the old cast and make them slightly relevant again.

He is right you know, it was mainly a adventure manga with a humorous tone, if you take all the adventure and keep only the gags it's really not the same.

This is like inverse GT. That one started trying to bring back the adventure and this one is trying to go back to the humor, but neither did it quite right.

It's like they gave DBSuper 1/100th the budget. The Freeza movie is animated so fucking well.

When Goku fought Beerus on King Kai's planet in Super, it was terrible how badly they animated that.
>>

People can be fan of DB and think Super is ass, because you know it pretty much is. Stop trying to make it a mutually exclusive thing. No budget, rehashing the movies on a shoestring budget, eve more padding than Z.

Except I'm a fan DB and I think Super is absolutely fine. In fact the only bad episodes so far where the ones with Goku fighting Beerus. Everything else has been really enjoyable for me.

Seriously, reading the Z portion of the manga is an entirely different experience. If you can, get it. Super definitely feels a lot more in line with it's pacing. Sure there's a few dodgy episodes and the BoG adaptation was worse in every way but it's leading into a RF adaptation which seems like it actually might be better.

I'd love to see what /a/ would think of the DB manga if it was released today. The Android/Cell saga is well regarded but I swear to god it would be ripped apart to Bleach level proportions today.
>>
>>133136116
If I were to make a list of arcs, I'd probably put the android/cell arc at the bottom. It's not terrible but the Editor was REALLY leading Toriyama the whole way and it shows.
>>
>>133136163
It's easily the worst part of the series. Right from the Android plot getting outright abandoned for Cell out of nowhere.

All of the elements and characters of the saga are great but the plot is an absolute fucking mess.

If I were to go back and "fix" android saga, I'd seperate it from the cell saga. The androids are kind of interesting as villains since they're just bored teenagers. It would have been kinda cool if they were just trying to get to Goku for an arc and once they finally get to him they either decide not to finish him off or basically just become Anti-heroes like Vegeta and Piccolo. Then when the Cell saga starts you're actually emotionally invested in these characters when they get absorbed.
Like Android 16 being destroyed was the trigger that sent Gohan into an uncontrolable rage. Even though him and 16 hardly had any sort of interaction. It'd have been cool if they had some sort of prior story together, Probably Gohan begging him not to kill his dad and the latter complying or even just "putting it off" until his dad can put up a good fight. That would've been cool.
>>
>>133136427
Can we also add in a bit of development for Vegeta so he's not a boring as fuck broken record throughout the saga?

He literally doesn't get interesting again until the Buu saga
>>
>>133136405
>>
>>133130718
The last two episodes were really really good. Comfy, fun, and made me laugh. Excited for the Freeza Arc, but twice as excited for the next installment of the Manga with the Tournament Arc.

I've come to realize that Gohan's progression makes total sense and that he's probably the best overall person in the show. He's the polar opposite of Goku:
>fights only when he needs to, and only to protect (unlike Goku, who just does it for fun), >best father in the series (obviously you can see the comparison between him and Goku), >actually gets a formal education and does something with it
>More sociable than Goku (doesn't just not go see his friends for 6 months, which is how he didn't notice Vegeta was gone)

However, I do want him to at least be written to have kept up with part - time training (maybe with Piccolo?) at lesst after Freeza blew up the planet, and he realizes he needs to take more responsibility in keeping the Earth safe. That, or Piccolo just makes him. I want to see him get into the tournament and win his match.
>>
>>133136253
I never really understood the hate for this arc honestly. I thought it had the most interesting premise out of all the DBZ arcs. When I first watched it I didn't expect much considering they had just come out of an arc that could have easily ended the series. Yet, I found myself much more absorbed with the whole mystery behind the androids and later Cell, not to mention tying in the Red Ribbon Army from Dragon Ball. I enjoyed everything in the Android/Cell saga up to the later half of the Cell games much more than the Freeza saga. I still think the weakest DBZ arc was Buu. Dragged on for too long.

Hate's a strong word. I don't hate it but it's just the worst saga in the series for the plotting. If it had gone more like >>133136427 suggested then it'd be much more interesting. Instead it comes off as a ropey mess with no real direction and no rounded characters.

>I still think the weakest DBZ arc was Buu. Dragged on for too long.
In the anime but not in the manga. In the manga it's fucking amazing and feels exactly like Dragon Ball should. Pace fucking rocks along with literally no down time. It does have it's problems but the anime's shitty adaptation of it give it a worse name than it deserves.

The thing about Buu is that it's one of those arcs that I'd almost say that reading the Manga is a necessity. When you read the manga the action flows smoothly and everything feels concise. Not only that but Buu saga is perhaps one of the most humorous arcs of the entire DBZ half of the series. That and the overarching theme of Goku wanting to pass the torch on to the younger generation makes it a very good arc to end the series on. You can tell Toriyama was having fun with it. I probably wouldn't rank it my favorite arc but it's certainly in the top 5.

I watched Kai, so everything was cut down. And really, with all this build up and secret power unlocking and Super God placing his trust in Gohan, it was a little disappointing for Gohan to only kick Buu's ass for about 1/3 of the ep, and then get his ass handed to him the next.

He's still a pretty cool guy, though.

I'm more used to the fighting driven Z, but I like Super. Toriyama always wanted Dragonball as a whole, to be entertaining. He can do that any way he wants as long as it's well executed.

I would prefer side characters have a chance to be helpful in a major fight as opposed to a power creep that seals off most of the characters. But that's been the direction of the show since Frieza, that isn't changing now.

I really hope the purple suit will come back, maybe with a little redesign.
Having Gohan and Goten with the same clothes as Goku is nice, since they are family, but i think the purple was better on Gohan.

Someone please take Goten and give him some fucking character!
Maybe have him train with the other z fighters or something. Getting tired of Young Goku Lite.

You would think Goku would be hyped to be with Goten, and yet he does very little with him.

Yajirobe has always existed for cheap jokes. He was literally the same thing as Mr. Satan only he could fight better. His role in the Saiyan Saga is exactly like Mr. Satan's in the Buu saga.

They lived together, but we never see them interacting much. He hasn't even been shown training Goten in any of this post-Buu material. And in spite of his childhood it's shown that Goten doesn't care for training when he's older (in the epilogue, the only time where we see Goku training him).

Really, I think Toriyama just doesn't have any interest in Goten at all. Yeah, Gohan got taken out easily in RoF, but he was still there. Goten and Trunks just weren't there. Look at these last few episodes of Super too. Goten only appears for one or two lines, and likely just because he shares a VA with Goku. Trunks isn't even there.

>>133145096
Yeah, the fact that Freeza was already brought back once just to get rekt by Trunks is one reason why RF was so boring. He can't be taken very seriously as a villain, and he doesn't make a good comedic villain like Beerus either
>>
>>133136427
I liked this arc; 18, 17, and 16 slice of life moments with their antics/adventures were top tier.
>>
>>133145136
>Why are you even in this thread if you don't like the anime adaptions? The fuck?
Guessing that's for me. I like the manga. I like BoG and RF was okay. I like where Super's going. I don't think the BoG adaptation was good. At all. BUT I'm fairly optimistic that they'll improve RF.

I don't have to like the fucking awful pacing of Z and to a lesser extent DB to be here. As was mentioned earlier in the thread - The fight with Frieza is 4 and a half hours long and that is totally unacceptable. No one can stand up for that. For that at least, Kai was way better.
>>
>>133141400
Nigga please, call me a nostalgiafaggot or whatever but DBZ wasn't that slow. It's probably about as slow as Super.

Wanna know what happened by the time we got to episode 16? Raditz has landed on earth, has been defeated, we know about Nappa and Vegeta coming to earth and Gohan is starting his training with Piccolo. A lot of "something" happened in those 16 episodes.

In that same time, we have
>Beerus is looking for the SUPA SAYAJIN GOTTO
>A joke that was funny and took a minute to explain in the movie somehow takes up a 30 minute episode

DBZ retardo-padding didn't happen until the Frieza saga, and Super is by no means immune to it.
>>
>>133145352
>call me a nostalgiafaggot or whatever
I will

>but DBZ wasn't that slow.
It was though. Especially compared to the manga. 16 episodes in and Goku still isn't all the way down Snake Way. Granted, like you said - it didn't go full on until Namek but the Saiyan saga is by no means better paced than Super.

>It's probably about as slow as Super.
We're already through an arc and firing through to the second with everything that was missing from the second movie. We've had a taste with the latest manga chapter of what's to come and it's gonna storm through. So far Super is the best paced series. Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of the BoG adaptation at all but to say that it's worse than Z is total shit.
>>
>>133145352
I feel like my biggest complaints about Super can be boiled down to Toei animation. If Dragon ball super was based off of a weekly manga that condensed everything I'd enjoy reading it. But since it's a monthly thing I have no choice but to watch the anime, filler and a Which means it's gonna be a DRAG all the way through. Because Toei can't even pace out an ORIGINAL story that has no chance of catching up with the source material.
>>
>>133145525
>We're already through an arc
You can't just measure by arcs, some arcs are shorter than others and some have less happening than others. Beerus came to earth in what, episode 5 or something? This arc could and should have been over by the time episode 8 came along.

Compare the Saiyan Saga which has
>Radditz landing
>A fight with Radditz
>Goku dies
>Afterlife training
>Gohan trains with Piccolo
>The Saiyans arrive on earth
>Nappa wrecks shit
>Goku saves the day
>He fights Nappa
>He fights Vegeta
Still only one arc but with a lot more going on: of course it's going to last significantly langer. It lasts twice as long to be precise (about 32 episodes) with A LOT more happening.

I agree that Snake Way was fucking bullshit, but Super takes it to a whole new level. For fucks sake, an entire episode dedicated to a rock-paper-scissors joke?

>>133145576
>Because Toei can't even pace out an ORIGINAL story that has no chance of catching up with the source material.
Yeah, that's another thing: Super doesn't even have the same excuse for horrible padding that DBZ had. I have to wonder what Super would look like if, theoretically speaking, it were passed down to a different animation studio. Of course it'll never happen as it's Toei's biggest cash cow, but just think about the possibility.

Gohan was always had this problem. He doesn't think of himself as powerful and heroic than Goku. What happened in the Cell saga was the best example, also he just stopped training after Cell because he trusted Goku's words.
If daddy says Earth is going to be safe thanks to his sacrifice, then why doubt daddy's words?
I hope this is addresses in the universe 6 saga, Gohan should learn he needs to stop relying on Goku so much.

Love him or hate him, at least Gohan has character. With Goten, he's just... kind of there.

>>133146301
Fucking hell man, Toriyama really is a hack. Literally the only reason why Goten and Trunks could go Super Saiyan effortlessly while it took years of training and great mental duress for the rest is solely so they would remain relevant during the power creep of the show. Now that the power creep is no longer important, Toriyama STILL doesn't know what to do with them.

I really wish they were just Launch'd out of existence.

I truly feel bad for gohan. It feels like he HAS to live this life Because he has so much potential. No one's telling Krillin, Tenshinhan or Yamcha they need to train and that if the world gets blown up it's their fault. They're allowed to retire and no one would blame them if the earth gets destroyed. At least when it comes to the fans, Gohan doesn't get that luxury.

You sound like a depressed kid counselor.
Of course it's his fault. He has the responsibility to protect his family, and to add to that he loves to fight to protect, that's why the Great Saiyaman exists.
He just needs to understand Goku isn't going to be there forever, and that he's an adult that needs to act more seriously. He's beginning to understand this.

>>
>>133146759
Well, I can't deny that. Still, they need some serious character development.
Goten is a blank slate aka Diet DB Goku
And Trunks is still a know-it-all brat. They need some development.
For example, I like how they showed some problems with their parents. Trunks in the second Broly movie was scared to face Broly, but was even more scared of facing his dad.
Goten saw his mom turned into an egg and crushed. You'd think that would scar him a bit. Or at least hint that he's a mama's boy.

Come on, Toriyama! Expand on this!

It's not his fault as much as it's the fault of Toriyama, who is a fucking hack.

>From the very start Gohan has been told that he has incredible potential
>By the Cell saga he's the strongest character in the entire series
>Goku leaves
>Gohan FUCKING STOPS TRAINING
Seriously? I get that Chichi is a bitch but would Gohan really do that after just seeing how much damage Cell did? Did he really believe that literally nobody would bother earth just because daddy left?

But let's excuse that, let's excuse him altogether and only look at the bullshit that Toriyama pulls.

>He gets the Mystic training from Supreme Kai which makes him technically the strongest character once again

Fair enough. But if I like to play street ball, it doesn't mean I want to try out for the NBA. Being the Saiyaman is fun because Gohan doesn't really need to try very hard. It's never life or death for him.
>He has the responsibility to protect his family

Roshi also had seemingly retired though (although there's a quote from Kuririn about training with him for the Androids).
>>
>>133146896
I have a theory about why gohan is so weak looking.

Gohan is supressing 99% of his power level at all times. Because he is a scholar he cant walk into class looking buff as fuck. And the reason i make this theory is because when he turns super saiyan in RoF he clearly gets muscular and when he puts on his great saiyaman costume especially in this past episode he has muscle. So I think he is supressing his muscle mass that he accumulated
>>
>>133147098
Because since the Saiyan saga Gohan was showed with the desire to protect his loves one, that's why he fights. When everyone told him to go home you stayed because he wanted to help.
That's what Gohan is.
When his love ones died because of his own fault edgy SSJ2 Gohan happens.

To be fair he was right. Nothing bad happened since Daddy left. Also Goku's pretty spot on.

>Raditz came to earth looking for Goku
>Vegeta and Nappa came to earth because Piccolo blabbed his mouth to Raditz about the dragonballs, who again, would not have been there if not for Goku
> Freeza and King Cold came to earth to get revenge on Goku
>Dr. Gero created 17, 18, 19, Himself AND Cell all for the sole purpose of getting rid of Goku.
>Beerus came to earth because he was driven by a prophecy he would fight a Super Saiyan God, which turned out to be Goku.
>Freeza is brought back to life and comes to destroy the Earth after a brief period of training as a way to get back at Goku and Vegeta.

To be honest, the only villain who showed up on earth without any relationship to Goku was Buu. And even he probably wouldn't have been awakened if Vegeta wasn't so hell bent on fighting Goku.

I don't remember stuff I wrote 10 years ago. He started Dragon ball 30 years ago and he was basically making it up as he went along meaning he probably didn't have a grandiose plan or commit events to memory that would be important. I'm sure he ALSO can't remember much about Dr. Slump.

I hope you are being facetious. In any language, the original medium will almost always have better voices, in part because the animation has been made specifically with those voices in mind. Dubs that are better than the original voices are, in any language, a rarity.

I don't think at any point during the Buu saga (manga) do we see night pass. Although it'd be basically inconcievable to think that all happened in one day, I think it may have only been 2 days max. Buu saga was just a really shitty weekend.

Tenshinhan has a bunch of cool techniques from his two serious battles, like multiple arms and multiplication. It's just that it's all useless in DBZ since he's always facing opponents much stronger than him, so he has to go for raw power in order to achieve anything.

Well, he has the Mafuba too, which could theoretically be useful, but Toriyama never liked villains being defeated by "cheating" methods.
>>
>>133150719
That's what I liked so much about Dragonball. It wasn't about just being stronger than your oponent. It was about how unique and creative your attacks were. Krillin managed to stay relevant for a while because he was so good at manipulating Ki.(ie. Those two ki blasts in the 23rd martial arts tournament, The really slow exploding ki blast that killed the Saibamen, The Kienzan) and Tenshinhan had a lot of cool crazy techniques too. Even Yamcha had the Wolf Fang Fist And the Spirit Ball.
Chiaotzu had his cool telekinesis, Oolong and Puar could transform. Everyone was so cool.
>>
>>133149279
I just noticed Piccolo is barely in Super.
>>
>>133150719

It would've been cool if evil buu were defeated by being sealed back through the mafuba given that he could simply regenerate from almost everything, but that would've made too much sense to work.
>>
>>133133861
That looks like a ps3 game senpai.. How the fuck is that good in any fucking way?
>>
>>133151024
Hmm...I wonder. Would the Mafuba still kill those who used it?
That also begs the question, Kami used it on piccolo, and piccolo reversed it. Neither of them die from it, and if one of them HAD it would've been moot because then the other would've died anyway. So is it just that they were strong enough to handle the strain of the technique?
>>
>>133151010
Who the fuck cares? Piccolo is literally the worst character in the series. He literally doesn't win a single battle in all of Z. Not even Raditz was on his own.

Every time he turns up like when he gets revived during Frieza they give it the AWWW FUCK - PICCOLO'S HERE TO GIVE IT SOME SERIOUS SHIT and instead he hilariously just shits himself.
>>
>>133151010
He was only comic relief in the Buu saga. Just another character who can't keep up with the power creep anymore, but at least his connection to Gohan means he probably won't become completely irrelevant like Yamcha and Ten.

Picked. You could literally cut him out of everything after the Saiyan Saga with relevant ease.

Didn't he beat the shit out of Gero? I mean Gero ran away like a bitch but he was clearly outmatched.

Also didn't Piccolo beat the shit out of Frieza during the scene you're talking about and was only defeated because Frieza had more forms that even Vegeta didn't know about? I mean you can say he didn't win the fight cuz Frieza did overpower him in his 3rd form, but it's not like Piccolo showed up just to get his ass whooped like Yamcha.

At least the series left Yamcha behind because he couldn't keep up. Piccolo exists entirely in Z to show power gap between the heroes and villains.

Dragon Ball Super is now getting good in my opinion now that the recap is over. Shitty animation recapping something already done and done much better was shit. Can't wait for 3 seasons from now where we get to see a shitty Ressurection of F recap

Freeza just one-shots the earth though. The only reason it took 5 minutes in the manga/anime was because Freeza held back too much and didn't fully detonate the core.
in RoF he rips earth's core a new asshole.

I just don't understand why they would have a woman voice a male character.
>>
Did the old Kaio VA die?
>>
>>133154426
Most children, boys and girls are voiced by women. This is true for both anime AND american cartoons.
>>
>>133154426
>>133154615
Because moon people are the worse nostalgiafags, also there are women that actually can voice a male (Oz Vessalius' VA, Punchline's MC's VA). Grandma Goku is just bad.
>>133154615
He was replaced.

The animation is shit and the pacing is awful

>>133156836
Japan has this weird hangup about "once a person voices a character, they must voice that character forever"

Unless they're close to death. And even then they'll wheel them out even though it's very apparent the fucker is dying

I liked this episode, Chi Chi got BTFO nicely. Based Videl.

That girly things line just seemed off for me. She's always been very tomboyish

Probably she meant the "girly things" as in certain specific stuff rather than "doing girly things". Because, yeah she has always been very tomboyish.

But what it truly matters here is that after this, we can finally say that we didn't lose Videl after all. It seems like she just lost in the bliss of her marriage with the love of her life and being a mother, but deep down she's the same old Videl, just with less teenager rebellious attitude.

It's nice to stand up for her like that in.a very casual way and props to Bulma for not taking sides with Chi Chi.
>>
>>133159502
I guess. She just doesn't seem much like Videl of old. Maybe it's one of those things that'll settle in with more time

Think they'll just silently retire Kai's character if/when his VA dies? Haven't seen him in a while.
>>
>>133160947
Probably. They already swapped out VAs for the narrator. And I don't remember Kaio having a part in RoF, so it wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't rock up when they adapt that
>>
>>133134233
>When Goku fought Beerus on King Kai's planet in Super, it was terrible how badly they animated that.
Yes, and then when they had SSJG Goku vs Beerus they had animation and direction comparable to BoG.
>>
>>133157151
>Japan
Then why characters like Bart and Stewie have the same voice when they air them as grown ups?
>>
>>133162517
Stewie always sounded like a grown-up. Not sure about Bart though.
>>
>>133162517
Because of laziness.

And even so if the VAs died they'd just hire a soundalike, not completely scrap the character like Japan does.
>>
>>133162703
>Because of laziness.
It's easier and cheaper to replace Nancy Cartwright but they know that if they replace her even for one chapter all the fans would throw a temper tantrum.
>>
>>133159062

She kind of transformed into a "woman" once Goahn married her. and that was the original DBZ.
>>
Gohan needs to start fighting because it would make Pam respect him
>>
>>133156904
Why are people still saying the animation is shit when it's been fantastic since the last Beerus episode?

Give it up, shit is boring as fuck. This series has been rinsed out.

I like edgy and spiteful Vegeta as much as the next guy, but that worn out, and the movies didn't help as they were playing the same tune over and over again.

Also, the main character fucking died.
And returned in the same episode, but only with a halo, but still, that counts for something.

>Seeing THE PRINCE OF ALL SAIYANS, SAIYAN PRIDE vegeta asa laughing stock is painful to watch.

Vegeta was a laughing stock for a large part of the series mostly because of where his muh saiyan pride took him.

C'mon, man.

You can always go to other threads to discuss things you like.

Granted, with this I'm not saying Dragon Ball, is something so amazing otherwordly.

Indeed.
