Dragonball Series General Discussion - New Anime Announced!

Postby Seventh » Fri Jul 25, 2014 8:55 am

Since discussion of the anime keeps coming up in the game threads, I figure one of these is long overdue.

So have at it, folks! The English release of Battle of the Gods hits theaters in a month and we now have an ominous trailer for the upcoming 2015 movie, to start things off.

New anime announced!

Is Kai Buu saga worth watching? Has it got to the good parts yet?

Since no one really posts here, what do people say about gathering our heads and trying to figure out what are the power level/sentou ryoku of the guys during Cell and Buu's era?

And then proposing to all DBZ fansites and get smited for it.

I hardly ever hurt my brain when I use it. Reading the Tao Te Ching and figuring out DBZ's BP are two exceptions.

Well, people probably will want to talk as news of the game or movie comes up. As for your previous question, I wouldn't know - haven't touched Kai.

I imagine there are charts for those around, but I'm of the mind that power levels in most things are more plot dependent than anything else. :lol:

The dbz kai version & its fans suck the very lime, it (they) so desperately seek. If you wanna watch the real raw & uncut version of the series, I suggest you look for the Original Japanese version of the episodes, which are A million times better and way more Superior anyways.

While I know a lot of people are just trying to rile other people up, it's probably not a good idea to outright state that you're doing so. That sort of behavior is not the sort of behavior that's wanted for this forum. Please try and play nice.

Randomly, was "Welcome Back Son Goku!" (The thing with Tarble) ever dubbed or released in English?

My brother is showing an interest after seeing the (amazing) movie last week and I'd like to show it to him somehow.

Apparently it wasn't. Maybe it'll get a release with Battle of Gods?

Anyway, something hit me about Battle of Gods earlier, and it's a cross between a theory and a plot hole, but either way it's got spoilers, so read at your own risk.

Spoiler:
There was never originally going to be a Super Saiyan God. Sort of.

Okay, let me rephrase that.

The Earth was supposed to be destroyed due to this premonition.

Wait, no, still wrong. One more time.

Trunks is going to die horribly in a few years in his timeline, unless I'm right.

Think about it. If Vegeta met Beerus in the past (in his CHILDHOOD even), that means that Beerus is thus a character who existed before any timeline shenanigans started when Trunks traveled back in time to warn people about the Androids. Therefore, Beerus would thus be a character that exists in Trunks' timeline as well, meaning that eventually, he'll wake up, seek out a Super Saiyan God, and probably destroy the Earth due to Trunks not taking particularly well to this sort of thing - and due to the fact that he wouldn't have warning that they were coming like Vegeta did, since he would be probably be the first stop they make (whereas in the movie, Goku was, allowing King Kai to warn Vegeta they were coming).

Looking at it like this, it's a plot hole because, as the movie presented it, Beerus' premonition/dream came true and the Super Saiyan God did exist as he predicted... but he predicted it all happened BEFORE Trunks went back in time. meaning that, as I said, the premonition could have never come true originally. So he should be waking up in Trunks' timeline and wreak all kinds of havoc there sooner or later. Or just blow the place up. Or ignore it and go find Tarble. One of these things.

However, this is looking at it from the perspective that Beerus is a being that exists on the same plane as our cast. Now, in some respects, it makes sense to think that he does - after all, the Kais seem to, right?

But wait! What about the line at the end of the movie? About there being twelve universes?

What if this was more than a sequel hook? What if this was more than a "there's even more out there" ending?

What if this was a very very subtle thrown out there way to "save" Trunks?

Think about it! If we assume that Trunks' universe is one of the alternate dimensions that Beerus was referring to, then what if, and this is just a crazy theory, the god of destruction in that universe is someone else entirely? Being an "alternate dimension," what if Trunks never actually caused a rift in the timeline at all? What if he just "traveled back in time," but actually just traveled to a dimension that was already there, being ruled over by another god of destruction?

By saying that there are alternate dimensions out there with people other than Beerus, you can infer that, if Trunks' timeline is one of said dimensions, his dimension's Earth won't eventually get run down by a god of destruction down the road the same way this one almost was. So in that respect, this line could have been put there not only for the obvious reasons, but for people who think too much and would realize Trunks would be in deep down the road.

... Or I'm just thinking too much period! :lol: Still, fun to think about, right?
