  1. Sometimes I look at my older comics and I remember there was a time when standard single issues were less than $2.

    Hey there! I went ahead and fixed it for you but for future reference you can hide parts of your post behind the spoiler tag by either: 1. Highlighting the part of your post you want to hide and clicking the eye icon on the post editor (if you're on mobile, turn your phone to landscape mode and it should pop up). 2. You can put the tags manually around what you wrote with [spoiler] [/spoiler]
  3. Guess it's a Kid Buu situation where he shares some things with another incarnation but this time with Goku. I'm alright with this. If anything, if you remove the Genki Dama from his move pool, it'd essentially be Path to Power Goku. I do hope Super Saiyan 4 is part of some special attack, though. Really the only downside is Nadolny won't be voicing him in English. Kinda hoping the final slot goes to like Yi Xing Long/Omega Shelong if they're going to do some GT rep.
  4. At this point, I hope the final DB FighterZ DLC slot is GT Vegeta with a mustache alt.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    Eh, that feels like a bit of a different case. We've known about Joker, officially, for the last three months and they've just teased a bit about an upcoming update to coincide with him. I assume when it gets closer to the update/a potential (at this point, fairly likely) port of Persona 5 announcement we'll finally see something--though by then the character will probably just drop on the eShop.
  8. As I've been rewatching Dragon Ball Super on and off by catching up with the dub, I find I just plain don't like it that much. My biggest issue with it is that they needed to place it before the ending of the original manga/Z when it would have worked fine/better as an actual continuation after those events. GT was already written off as an alternate universe, so it just feels weird to cram all this stuff into a four year period (part of a longer ten year period) that was always treated as not being a big deal and a point where Goku just literally forgot to talk to any of his friends because he was busy preparing to meet Uub.

      I'd honestly rather they just ignore that stuff at this point, Z's ending was never really very good and mostly just evident of Toriyama's fatigue with writing the series. I have a running theory that the only reason they haven't completely overwritten it and GT's area of the timeline is because Super Saiyan 4 is still marketable.

      They will start digging up GT stuff too soon. They're running out of shit to mine from Z lol

    3. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      If nothing else, it would be an impressive feat to see Toriyama improve upon that series' elements as much as he did Broly.

      I mean technically there's still a lot of movie shit to reinterpret. I think we will get some Cooler at least before we dive into the madhouse.

      Salvaging Super Saiyan 4 is kind of a no brainer that I think they're already setting up for. Making Pan an actual character would be nice but I'm not getting my hopes up.

      I don't see shit like Baby ever getting touched but we'll see.

    5. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      My problem with most movie villains vs. Broly is that while sucking was pretty much universal, Broly was at least not a direct takeoff of any previously-existing character. Cooler is just Frieza but blander. Slug and Turles are the same way.

      Super Saiyan 4 isn't something I'm particularly opposed to, I just hate that A. It's called Super Saiyan fucking 4 when that's not even what it is at all, and B. it's colors are shit. I feel like with Ultra Instinct becoming a thing and Broly's wrath form using the Oozaru's power, SSJ4 feels a little redundant, though.

      Pan being a character is fine so long as she's not the character GT Pan was. Honestly with a title change and more focus on Trunks, Goten, Uub, Bulla and Marin, I'd honestly like for them to do a Boruto-type generational thing in the post-GT time period.

      Aside from that most of GT can eat it. All of it's villains are bland, ugly and generic, with weirdly similar facial features and universally-awful color design (is this just something specific to Nakatsuru?). The vague approximation of ideas that are "A parasite that infects and turns the heroes against Goku and co" and "evil dragons based on DB overuse/misuse" and "something from hell" are all decent starting points, but I don't want anything that actually resembles GT itself.

      Oh, and fuck the sentiment of "they just need to follow Toyotaro's manga! Toyotaro will save us!". Dude had his chance and has squandered it time and time again.

      tbh GT could have been overwritten and had parts of it (i.e. SSJ4) salvaged. Even though it's more of a hindsight type of thing, Broli kind of proved they can recreate whatever the hell they want without needing to actually continue the original storylines. I personally think it would have been cool to tie the God and SSJ4 forms together.

    7. Wraith

      Wraith

      Most of the villains are derivative but I don't think that'll mean much if they see a story they could pull from it. I think they'll avoid more direct rips like Turles but Cooler is at the very least an excuse to use Frieza again.

      Broly's wrath form is what will lead directly into Super Saiyan 4. It might even be a form exclusive to him IMO.

      I'm just interested in more female Saiyans that don't suck shit. She probably won't do much in the long run because that's not what Dragon Ball is really about but I'll take fodder to pad out the fighting game rosters at this point. Anything!

      Dragon Ball couldn't even let Goku go for Gohan. As much as I'd prefer it as a generational story that starts from point zero every 10 years or so, I think it'll be Goku's story as long as Toriyama is around and shit as soon as he isn't.

      Toyotaro largely sucks I agree but I like the new villain he's setting up in the latest chapters. Or at least, I like his design a good deal more than the last few villains.

  9. What gets me about this is that this map was specifically done for "Brave New World," a story he wrote and (well, mostly) illustrated. It's kind of weird to learn he apparently rejected this concept later on because it's what opened up how to develop the world of the comic. Like, when did that happen?

    okay but who is asking for this

      "Sonic fans want this" aka "I want this but want it to seem like it's more objective than it is"

      Isn't Mephiles just the prototype Super Sonic from the Sonic X pilot? Mephiles isn't even really his name, it's just the Japanese word for "mystery"

    3. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      @Sean ok i'm bad at reading what's irony and what's not on the internet so pls tell me that was joke

      And as much as people are laughing here, I actually know several people that really liked him in 06 and want him back as a villain. Hell, I actually didn't really mind him, cuz he actually accomplished something noteworthy (even if that did get erased from the timeline anyway).

    4. Ferno

      people capitalizing whole words in youtube video names just scream clickbait imo

    5. Waveshocker Sigma

      @Sean That's Nazo you're thinking of. Mephiles isn't even Japanese, it's derived from Mephistopheles.

    6. Ferno

      Before seeing the cutscene showing Mephiles coming from Shadow's shadow, I still remember thinking that mephiles was the lifeform from the 2nd Ark capsule in Sonic X, a random plot point that was never explained. (back when I was a kid and sonic x was still airing I saw the show as semi-canon at the time. '06 adapting Sonic X things like shadow's rings being power inhibitors didn't help and only made X feel that much more potentially canon to me.)

      Only thing he had going for him was the fact he looked  like something from  Sonic's world for atleast part of the game. Sure  he spent alot of time as a recolored Shadow, but ill take it over the hyper realistic monsters that stuck out like a sore thumb.

    8. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Ok, I'll admit it. I kinda want Mephiles back. I kinda like a manipulative bad guy, besides he was so hammy that it made me like every time he popped up. I did think several times over tje years he could be back (Time Eater I was damn sure of, Ian Flynn agreed if I remember) but alas no. Oh well, he can keep popping up as cameo's in my cartoons.

    9. Ferno

      Ferno

      the only way i'd accept him coming back is if he had some petty "who's more evil" argument with infinite

    10. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      Okay villain

      Okay character

      Not worth bringing back outside of the context of the game

       

      and also he's dead and will never come back

    11. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      There's aspects of him that I like but his design is hella inconsistent in pretty much every area, and he'll always have the stigma of "basically crystalline Shadow" no matter what they do with him. Not to mention actually bringing him back from total timeline erasure is absolute Diabolus Ex Machina asspulling - it's pretty telling that they simply invented Infinite instead whenever they wanted to use that specific edgy niche again.

    12. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      He's gone down in history as being from the game that killed Sonic.

       

       

      And everyone knows Sonic fans think things too litterally.

    13. Sean

      Sean

      @Waveshocker Sigma No I'm pretty sure I'm right. Mephiles means "mystery." Mystery means "no one gets left behind"

    14. Celestia

      Celestia

      Every time I see that thumbnail I have to laugh because I like literally all of those other characters there (except Lyric I guess) whereas the only kinda neat thing about Mephiles is his powers and like...I'd rather just have a new char who can do similar stuff.

    15. Ferno

      Ferno

      he's the only villain who just "shot" the hero like a smart person so he kinda has the edge there tbh

    16. Sean

      Sean

      (tiny galaxy brain) "Why doesn't the villain just shoot the hero"

      (biiiiig galaxy brain) "Why doesn't the villain just date the hero"

      Wait, does that mean Amy Rose si secretly a villain trying to use the tactic of dating the world's hero in order to immediately rise to power and create her own legion of powerful heirs afterwards?

    18. Ferno

      Ferno

      @Sean that just gives "lets crack that eggman wide open" a whole new meaning

    19. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      @Ferno Don't forget "I'll NAIL that Eggman! Can't let him escape!"

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Yeah when I watched the film it seemed like it jumped around a bit even during the Saiyan backstory stuff. The worst example I can think of is the transition (or lack thereof) between Bardock and Gine sending Goku off and Bardock's rebellion/destruction of Planet Vegeta. At most showing Bardock actually staging the rebellion/giving some kind of shout out to the original TV special would have been really nice. That being said, if they made a short manga about young Vegeta and Raditz based on the cut storyboards, I'd fucking buy it (and I hate Dragon Ball Minus).
  12. Zaysho

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Well that's not quite accurate. From what I read, they were storyboarded sequences and they didn't make it past that stage. It did sound like some interesting Saiyan history stuff, but it probably wasn't relevant to the actual story--just more fanservice on top of fanservice (which I'd be okay with if they did include it). I think they would have advertised an extended cut by now since the home release is right around the corner, so I can't say I'm holding my breath. Though here's hoping a storyboard book or something similar comes out.
  13. For future reference, this is the sort of thing Sean already talked about in the rules appended to the opening post. I'd appreciate it if we could avoid these sorts dismissive non-arguments and generalizations because they're tired and drag the topic around in circles (again).
  14. Free will? Pitiful humans! War, segregation, hatred! Is that what you've done with your free will, boy? Don't you lecture me with your $30 haircut, Goku dies!

  15. Probably in the sense that the model looks fine in motion even though the character design itself isn't good. Which is about what I would expect tbh
