Of course not, trying to avoid spoilers here. I'll take the hint.

As you were, guys.

Man, some of you know nothing about Dragonball. Try going to kazenshuu, the main Dragonball fan forums. Everyone there will school you on Dragonball history, its characters and what the franchise is really about.

You're hilarious, Cubed. Don't ever stop being yourself. Although I do hope this post wasn't aimed at me.

PS. I was a member there for quite some time, under a different name. Nice to know it's still going.

I'm seriously considering signing up again now...

all things aside, i'm totally digging this iteration of the DB universe. I'll watch the English Dub on Funimation soon enough, but for now, I'm enjoying it on Crunchyroll

Go there right now, there's always interesting discussion going on about all the sagas, all the characters, and behind the scenes facts of Toriyama, the manga, the anime, etc:

http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/

They also have weekly review threads for Super. Only decent place on the internet to discuss Dragonball without fanboys or young kids who grew up only watching the dub.

female brolly, what?

I've been waiting forever to see a female SSJ (kind of got close when it looked like videl powered up to SSJ during the Super God arc at the start),,

I don't want to see a retcon of the most pointless villain ever.

where can we find images and info of all these spoilers? so far i like what we'ves een.

LOL, now you're complaining about Dragonball, Vegita-San? Do you like anything anymore?

The new character designs are great. Very Toriyama inspired. A female Broly being introduced in canon is like Toriyama trolling the fanbase and I love it.

Anyway, what is Super about? I keep saying I'm going to check it out, but never think about it until this thread pops up.

Basically toriyama's frig you to hollywood for giving us the horrid dragonball evolution.


it's not bad for the most part, but it's not as epic as dragonball Z.

I'm glad they put in more comedy though.

Super is pretty good but the first 25ish episodes are just episode adaptions of the recent two movies. It has really poor animation too at the start and the movies were stretched out into episodes.

Most people just watch Movie 14 and 15 (Beerus movie, and Return of Freeza), then start the series at episode 28 when the new material starts.

People assume you've already seen the movies, so I'll do a better job explaining.

Dragonball Super takes place some years after the defeat of Majin Buu at the end of DBZ but BEFORE they met Uub in the final episodes. It starts when the God of Destruction, Beerus awakens to find and challenge the Super Saiyan God. As the series continues both Goku and Vegeta gain the powers of the Gods, and the existence of different universes, each with their own versions of Gods of Destruction and other deities, are explained and explored, including the existence of planet sized Dragonballs called Super Dragonballs. The world of Dragonball basically gets a much larger scope as later sagas explore these different universes and different characters.

It's a lot more enjoyable without seeing the movies (even though the movies were better). The episodes do flesh out the characters and explain more things here and there, and if you've never seen the movies, you're not sitting back impatiently saying 'come on, get on with it... get these parts over with' and just enjoy the series more as a whole.

Or people can simply skip the movie adaptions, which started at episode 3 and go to episode 27.

Watch the fillers inbetween though, oddly enough nearly all the fillers in Super have been great.

I'm pretty sure she can do whatever she wants and watch them however she wants.

I did like the movie adaptation episodes just fine, bad animation aside. It did flesh things out more and I liked how they showed some of Freeza's training, which was exactly what I was hoping for when I found out they were adapting the movies into episodes. I mean, I knew there was going to be new stuff afterwards, so I didn't mind waiting.

They're the low point of Super though. Rehashed from the movies with worse animation. It's why Super had such a bad reception when it first started.

However after they end the quality of Super skyrockets. The animation improved tremendously, the Champa tournament was decent, the Zamasu arc was good, the fillers have been great, and the upcoming tournament looks interesting.

I will say one thing about the animation. Sometimes it's great, other times, its total trash. At times it doesn't have that Toriyama/Dragonball feel.

Anyway, I'm ready for the dub to get to he Future Trunks arc.

This tournament coming up seems a little interesting, but at the same time, I'm not thrilled.

Also, man that "female Broly", I'm not excited about. I see a Lt of people saying she will be from Universe 6. I don't see how that could be the case since Cabba didn't know what an Ssj was? Also, it will be hilarious if she turns out to be a troll and not actually a Saiyan.

As long as the other main characters outside of Goku/Vegeta get good fights, I'm fine. Bringing back all the older main characters for a tournament and not having them do anything or lose their fights quickly will piss a lot of people off.

I feel this next arc will "make or break" Super as a whole. Some goodwill was earned back with the Zamasu arc, but this next saga has to be good or else Super won't be remembered fondly.

Well they're going to be fighting in pairs/teams. So there should be some really good fights. I hope 17 and 18 get to team up. Goku and Gohan, Gohan and Piccolo. Hell maybe even Vegeta and Piccolo.

And you could be right about this arc making it or breaking, but at the same time, dragonball has a huge following, there's a ton of people who will watch no matter what they do.
