She could teach me about Communism desu.
maybe he used to
i still think there is a lot of left to explore about him which unfortunately toriyama never realized
Think about it, he is called emporer(or things along that line) Pilaf, he clearly had a LOT of money in the beginning of the series(then wasted it trying to get the dragonballs), one of his henchman is ninja-ish and the other what appears to be wearing a military uniform, and his goal is to rule people. It's likely that he used to have an actual kingdom, but maybe a war or something happened that killed most of the royal family leaving only him and his last two loyal followers alive. In some dub versions he is called "prince Pilaf", which might explain why he is such a shit ruler, because it was his father who ruled that kingdom.
Of course, that is just a theory or maybe "headcanon" but to say he never had a military would be just as much headcanon
> Implying Trunks won't fuck the communism out of her and turn her into a capitalist
So how the fuck did Mai become young in Future Trunks' timeline where Piccolo/Kami is dead and there are no more dragonballs?
Also, where's Pilaf and the doggo? Guess they're not popular/attractive enough to be major characters, huh?
Everything. Saiyaned soon, beautiful children to follow.
Gotta repopulate some how. Hand holding when?
Trunks goes straight for the lewd hand holding every time. He had a hard life and now all he wants is a hand to hold.
would of been nice to have learned a bit more about them. Sadly. that ain't happening now
In the anime Super, the bottom of Mai eyes are rounded, I haven't seen this in any of Toriyama's works for years. I think this is what gives her that special charm. Her eyes also aren't outlined completely which enhances the moe factor. Her reference sheet had specific instructions to draw her eyes that way.
In the manga, however, her eyes are roughly the same but they're flat bottomed.
>Her reference sheet
Mai 's character sheet. here it is.
Wish we had a better version of this
>So how the fuck did Mai become young in Future Trunks' timeline where Piccolo/Kami is dead and there are no more dragonballs?
The wish happened before the Android arc in both timelines. This is supported by different facts, like the Pilaf Gang being unaware Shenron could grant more than one wish and the fact Mai is younger than she should be in both timelines. They were probably turned into 1 to 2 years old by the Dragon very close to the time Trunks was born and that is why Mai looks to have around the same age as Trunks.
>Also, where's Pilaf and the doggo?
As for why Pilaf and Shu aren't there with her no one knows, this was even brought up in the anime but Future Trunks himself doesn't know what happened with them because he never met them in his timeline. He only knows Mai. People think they might be dead, but only Future Mai can answer that for sure.
>Guess they're not popular/attractive enough to be major characters, huh?
It looks like they will have some relevance, though. They are appearing a lot and their absence in the future was even mentioned in the anime.
Well, /a/ isn't a good representative of the Dragon Ball fanbase at all. Outside of here most people don't care about the girls, they are too busy wondering why Future Trunks's hair is blue and why Gohan doesn't like to fight anymore. Also, going crazy over Black having a Super Saiyan White form and surpassing Beerus.
manga Mai demanded it
I think this isn't about capitalism/comunism, it's about the style. Toriyama makes Mai (and previously Oolong) to wear that coat/uniform because that's something that takes part of the chinese culture, just like he makes Chi-Chi, Yamcha, Tenshinhan, Chaotzu wear traditional Chinese and/or martial arts Chinese clothes.
>I hope they release a full version of thisn
I hope so too.
and she returns it too
the Pilaf gang were always my favourite villains so having them back makes me happy and the idea of a couple who have each defeated time in their own way is hilarious, crazy and so Toriyama that I'm pretty enthusiastic about it.
The meta narrative about how Toei removed the Trunks/Mai gag romance from super and Torriyama based an arc around it anyways is also hilarious to me.
Pilaf does not approve of her tasteless jokes though
I don't mind that she isn't exactly like she was in DB.
I'm just glad that she's back, and I'm more than happy with teen Mai design. I love original DB Mai but goddamn, teen Mai from Super is perfect.
As for the Trunks x Mai shipping, I LOVE it.
At first I thought it was bizarre, but now I think it's the best DB couple ever.
it's kinda funny to realise little Mai is back in her teens while future Mai would be 30+. F Trunks did say they were about the same age
F Trunks may even be physically a little older than F Mai because of his training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
if the wish was made before the androids. Mai would be older even with the wish.
If anything. F Trunks training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber closed the gap.
in their BoG and RoF retellings.
They removed stuff.
especially stupid because Toriyama apparently already had plans to expand on it.
making "later developments come more easily"
>Was the Pilaf gang appearing again also something you were particular about, Sensei? They had become children, though….
>Yeah, about that. (laughs) Originally, they were just going to be petty thieves. But since we were going to have the entire cast, I thought [it wouldn’t be great if] some unknown characters just suddenly showed up. So I made them into the Pilaf gang. But you know, thinking long and hard about it after making that decision, they were all getting pretty old. (laughs)
>Mai says she’s 41 years old. (laughs)
>So I came up the idea that if I made them younger, they’d be just right.
>They stirred things up in an unexpected role (?). I was honestly surprised at that romantic development!
>Ah! Well, anyway, that’s the Pilaf gang for you. If they were to keep on appearing as villains, they’d just be easily defeated. So I figured, “maybe if I inject a little romance, the later developments will come more easily~”. (laughs) I hardly ever draw romance.
Toriyama brought them back ,made them young and started trunks / mai
They added F Trunks , F Mai and Black to the character section.
With official art too
Reminder Tao was the coolest villain in the series
before he jobbed against Goku at least.
>he killed the Red Ribbon Army's strongest soldier with his FUCKING TONGUE
>he reflected a sniper bullet by using his sandal
>he chucked a pillar hundreds of miles to reach his destination because riding a jet would be too slow
>he impaled a guy who we just saw got done tanking hundreds of machine gun fire with his own spear
>he LITERALLY ran up Korin's Tower
>most importantly he kicked Goku's ass, the same Goku who fought on par with none other than Master Roshi
I hated how he became a total joke. Also why was 21st Budokai Roshi weaker than Tao while 22nd Budokai Roshi was stronger? I'm pretty sure Roshi is too old and lazy to train.
took them long enough, the u6 guys aren't even full body yet wtf.
also small Mai
>took them long enough, the u6 guys aren't even full body yet wtf.
indeed. They already have the full body art too.
>also small Mai
kinda strange to see Mai as the smallest
shit man, granny briefs got huge
also black taller than goku or goku got taller or trunks shrank?
Mai has always been pretty short though, I guess hanging out with a blue dwarf and dog has its benefits.
for sure. it certainly made me think she was taller.
>I'll try seducing my next girl with cat food.
i'm certain you'll succeed
>all my mai is gone.
come now anon. Should have made at least a copy of your Mai pics
These japs never fail to make me laugh.
wanna lick that mai all over
I'd like to see F Mai's reaction to seeing Pilaf and Shu again.
I loved the scene of him being a fucking badass in the hotel
>fill bathtub with water, throw an egg
>make it boil with ki
>eat a boiled egg while having a bath
So pointless, yet great.
>I'm pretty sure Roshi is too old and lazy to train.
Roshi says himself he trains all the time secretly offscreen.
It's also why he managed to put up a fight against Freeza mooks in RoF.
hope we got more from them now though
y know what? if dragon ball was pro wresltling i would have released majin buu now or long ago and probably try pushing krillin, tien and piccolo
The recaps of BoG and RoF are pretty fucking terrible, but the new content in-between them (Episodes 1-4, 15-17) and extended fights between Goku and Beerus in BoG retelling as well as extended beatdown that Vegeta gives to Freeza in RoF are solid. Universe 6 Tournament was okay and the new Trunks arc is great.
funnily enough, this hentai was the one that got me into dragonball back when i was a kid(i browsed through my brothers porn collection) like 17 years ago or so
i remember i saw how goku turned ssj in that and i thought that looked cool and thus looked up this series
Just imagine someone would tell you Mai would be relevant again.
I bet people in charge became all Maifags after she got a top tier doujinshi out of nowhere some years ago.
The most canon pairing since Gohan x Videl and also one of the most controversial in anime/manga history.
Why is Roshi so based? He's already groped the asses/tits of Bulma, Chi Chi and 18. He even poked Videl's breasts once. It's only a matter of time before he gets his hands on Mai too.
I wonder if any of their husbands know how many times he's groped their wives? Goku probably wouldn't care, Don't know about Krillin, Gohan is too much of a cuck to do anything, but Vegeta comes off as the one most likely to try to kill him. I wonder if Veggie knows about Bulma's past?
>you will never repopulate the future world with your Maifu
just end it all already
>You will never repopulate the saiyan race with your sexy husbando
Makes me wonder what happened to the other non fighters from the main cast in the future. The Tv special showed that Roshi along with Puar, Oolong and the turtle were still alive. Also Chi Chi was still alive in the special too. I don't know if the special is canon or not. But if it's not, I guess those characters are dead too.
You have excellent taste in husbando, anon.
>implying long haired Trunks wasn't sexy as fuck
Oh and btw, and there's a new lewd fanart on pixiv under the tag トラマイ. I thought you anons would like to check it out.
How many humans are even left on Earth in the future? If there are no time traveling dragon ball shenanigans to bring everyone back, Trunks should just impregnate all the women to create a new race of pseudo Saiyans. Hell he could impregnate Chi Chi if she's still alive and make a Gohan 2.0, raising him properly this time.
>the most controversial in anime/manga history.
That's pure bullshit.
Some people, mostly casual watchers magnify the situation because it's Dragon Ball.
We have Inuyasha x Kagome, Edward x Bella, Tenchi Muyo x Whoever, Mizuho x Kei, Nadia x Hanson, Kenshin x Kaoru, Misao x Aoshi, The two (whose names escapes me) from Koi Kaze, Isshin x Masaki in Bleach, Jonouchi x Mai in Yu-Gi-Oh, Hohenheim x Trisha Elric in FMA, those two from Angel Sanctuary, Terada x Rika in Card Captor Sakura and plenty of others.
Even before Super, some people were shipping pic related (or Marron) with Trunks and no one batted an eye.
Then Trunks x Mai ship sails and some western fags (because I can bet most detractors are from the western side of the fanbase), become all weirded out or analblasted.
I mean, yeah Trunks x Mai is an odd pair, but they act like it's something incredibly controversial.
There is no such thing as too old in the Dragonball universe.
We can be grateful for that artist putting in work for a good quality Mai doujin
yeah. but considering how Mai is not the fan-service type and only now got her biggest role since DB. More new doujin might take quite a while to show up
the lack of episode this week is lame..
Mai still best but Panchy is great too
arc has a fight between Cell and Black.
Made possible thanks to time travel crazyness
>Still not read DB manga
fucking plebs, thats why we need a new mod to make /a/ great again
I wonder how strong Bojack actually was. I'm guessing a little below Perfect Cell level before his power up.
why are they so perfect for each other?
>If the next Comiket doesn't provide us with some Mai doujinshi we will riot!
that. and we need a good Mai figure. DB Mai or Future Mai
You better read that shit right now you mother fucker or get the fuck off of /a/
>Both have a thing for weapons
>Are "time" related in some way
>Somewhat smart like his mother
>Considering Trunks is a spoiled momma's boy and probably into older women, she fills his needs pretty well
but his legendary status should be legendary, like killing a lot of people, his power rising as time progresses, and basically ssj3 tier power that takes effort and teamwork to beat
>how does he do it
he just does what he wants and gets his way.
>Checking the Twitter
>Japs have been playing a game of drawing Trunks x Mai in 60 min at midnight
heard it's just because of some special event or something replacing it.
Doubt it will be used to improve stuff
seems there actually is a trunks x mai doujin..
From 2013 even. surprising
>no DBS doujins in the C90 tag.
Come on, Japan!
>Bet they feel like psychics now
released one day after BoG theater release. perhaps the artist saw an early viewing or something?
My guess is that is not Future Trunks in that case.
>where is the sauce
see filename anon
She's not and no one gave a shit before she came back as deus ex waifu for Mirai Trunks.
If you must really pick secondary female characters, then at least have the decency to chose someone like Lunch or Lanfan.
And she proud about it.
>implying you wouldn't
Very cute together
it be a shame if something were to happen to them.
I like both versions
Still. like you said
>But either way I'm glad to have best dragon ball girl back
Toriyama gets his ideas from porn doujins of his oc's, now we know.
>Are there more pages?
just two more preview pages. See link >>144611180
Trunks and Mai's daughter according to some guy
The fact that she hasn't been killed by Black is pretty astounding desu.
how could a kid of theirs actually appear...
>Goku , Trunks and vegeta travel to the future and fight black
>Black gets stronger but loses again and flees to the further future
>Mai and Trunks's kid shows up to fight him
>he recognizes the kid's looks and realises he failed to kill Mai
not close enough
good thing surviving crazy stuff hasn't completely left the pilaf gang members.
I guess that would be more simple and likely
animal earthlings in DB can't catch a break
>My guess is that is not Future Trunks in that case.
in that doujin. Just an older present Trunks , i guess
>80s Mai>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Modern mai
What can I say? They are the same character, but well, and from the design point of view both are fine. It was unavoidable, she had to be drawn in Tori's modern style, otherwise, she would kinda look out of place.
>Toriyama gets his ideas from porn doujins
he truly is a genius
With these comics.
instead of killing them. Black just keeps trolling Trunks and Mai instead.
even if they did. he destroyed the planet after that so.. yeah. dead anyway.
So why did Mai spend like 20 years of her life following Pilaf around anyway? She's a normal human and she follows a little blue elf and a talking dog man and they're basically bumbling incompetent villains.
Why didn't Mai leave Pilaf's group after the original 13 ep arc in Dragonball? Is she autistic?
Mai was literally Team Rocket in DB.You could ask the same of Jessie but thats what it was.Bringing her back for BoG was just so that Toriyama could pander t the waifu fad.Think like this
>Pokemon ends within a weak
>After 20 years a new Pokemon series stars
>Jessie made young and made Ash's son's gf
>Bringing her back for BoG was just so that Toriyama could pander t the waifu fad.
He brought them back because he liked the Pilaf gang. If he wanted to pander to waifufags, he would've made a new or several moeblobs and given them major roles.
Did no one care who he was until he put on the mask?
> inb4 Ginefags
Yeah, it's nice to see her (Pilaf and Shu too) having a second chance at life. I always thought it sucked balls to see them in GT as old people who wasted their lives on retarded world domination plans.
she will be the next dragonball gal after Videl, i'm pretty sure of it
