Can't say I'm really too excited about the new movie.... But a new tv series has made me shit my pants in anticipation :scanners_head:

That said, it has to be better than GT..... God let it be better than GT.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

As much as I liked Dragon Ball series I'm not extatic about new series. Somehow it gives me a Simpsons vibe - Don't push it so far it becomes a farce. Seriously in last movie, an unbeatable god that could destry Frieza at whim but didn't get to it and Goku going Sayan deity? No thanks. I'm not loking foreward to it. The franchiese has ben chewed and regurgitated too much for my taste.

Yes, be better than GT (which I've heard of more than seen, but yeah).

Hmmmm somehow I have a bad feeling about this, but we'll see how it goes. Are the battle of the gods movies going to be canon in this I wonder?

Never understood the Dragon Ball GT hate but..... whatever.

The only thing i want from this is the return of Future Trunks as one of the main characters.

So how many episodes will each fight take? Will there actually be more than one fight? And how much time of each episode will they spend staring at each other?

Mostly because it was terrible. Ugly SSJ 4 form, magically de-aging Goku, Baby, Tuffles, Bluntz waves, a general lack of quality plots even by DBZ standards, lack of Toriyama involvement, etc. Just a heaping helping of bad all around.

I wonder to what extent Toriyama will be involved in the new series? It will be good if it continues the DB/DBZ vibe, but I wonder how it will manage it. Does Resurrection 'F' have anything to do with it? Or perhaps the gods? So many questions!

*sigh*

I wish I could say that I was excited for this...but I'm not. Unless they do something radically different, it just sounds like the same regurgitated "each villain is the strongest being in the universe" schtick that has formed almost every large plotline of DBZ. They need to do some character exploration, kill someone off, have a romance, just mix things up in some way because honestly the standard DBZ formula is stale as shit.

In short: Why?
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

^ Because fans like the same thing regurgitated to them ad nausea.

Or at least they think that's what they want until they see the new Dragonball & realize it isn't exactly like the show that ended 20 years ago.

Ugly monkey form pls. go.

Another question comes to mind: will we get to see mystic Gohan in action? Because man, that would be cool. That was my biggest complaint about the Buu arc, and if they address that . . . wow.

I've pretty much given up asking that question as anyone whose paid attention to my opinion knows I think this should have ended with the freeza arc.

That being said by dbz standards at least battle of the gods wasn't bad, I mean it had problems sure but it was a hell of a lot better the the buu arc or gt, so if this series is like battle of the gods quality that'd be cool.

Speaking of which, an enemy stronger then buu or freeza? I have heard in the new movie freeza has a 100 quintillion power level. By my estimations at best ssj3 goku has a power level in the trillions, so that would be a huge jump to be made with his god form from Gokus regular max to be able to fight something like that, and now were getting something stronger in this series (assuming the new movies are canon to it)

That's a bit much even for dbz...

But don't forget about Vegito and Mystic Gohan. Still lots of room for growth, I think. And what happens if Mystic Gohan goes SSJ? He'd probably blow up the planet!

It's implied that Mystic "form" is his SSJ form, or rather replaces it. After Old Kaioushin finished the ritual, he told Gohan to "do that Super Saiyajin thing" and that's when Gohan became what we term Mystic.

Sounds like one of those made up internet power levels. I'll believe it when I see the movie and read a subtitle of someone actually saying it.

That's a bit much even for dbz...

It's a made-up scale to begin with. :lol: What have these numbers ever meant in real terms anyway? The characters have had (at least allegedly) planet-destroying power since at least as far back as the first battle against Vegeta.

Only now is it ridiculous? :lol:

The only neat thing to do at this point is having the entire main cast have a gangbang to combine their power levels to defeat the bad guy.

That "implication" is murky at best, as it amounts to "go ahead, power up". That says nothing about where Gohan can go from his new baseline form. This is the kid who discovered the ascended Saiyan, after all. If anyone can discover new avenues of power it's him.
