"Villains" laughing constantly.

Universes getting squished.

Angels smiling malevolently.

18 wearing shades.

Must be a new episode of Super.

The action of the latest episode was alright. It's a shame that the Trio De Dangers couldn't really show off their gimmicks again. Bergamo didn't get huge, Lavender's poison was worthless and Basil is nothing without his steroids.

Am I forgetting something or is this barrier thing an asspull? The universe deletion was different from the previous one too. Very likely there is something up and there wont be a need to wish the universes back with the super dragon balls. We also need more frieza screentime to make up for ditching buu.

No, it's an asspull. Goku and Vegeta specifically outright say they developed it(and Gohan apparently) in the like, 3 days they had even though Vegeta had never seen the technique. Never been done before. When the previews came out for the episode people thought it was a new transformation or something.

Why is it an asspull though? Its not something new, when Goku came back to earth from Namek he made a barrier in his finger to stop Trunks sword, and they knew in advance that the yellow furfag had poison, not the best way to handle it, but not an asspull.

>>706336

The durability of your body increasing with your ki and focusing your ki isn't a barrier or new. Goku isn't the only character in the series to have blocked Trunk's sword. He gives his finger a ki charge and throughout the duration of the fight with Trunks they both just look like two full-SS ki Super Saiyan with no distinguishing All of the actual barriers we've ever seen in dragon ball, including the one used by Goku, have been spheres that deflect energy. These barriers don't seem to help defend against energy or help reinforce against physical attacks as displayed in the episode, their ONLY function is to defend against poison. If it wasn't, Vegeta wouldn't have had to dodge another comparably sharp attack to Trunk's sword, the catgirl's claws, when fighting both of them at the same time, and wouldn't have gotten his arm frozen by the beam. Neither Goku or Vegeta either showed any improved durability against the attacks of much weaker opponents to boot.

Beyond a new form of full body barrier it's also an entirely new barrier against something they've never faced before.

>they knew in advance that the yellow furfag had poison

And what is your explanation for Vegeta, who wasn't at the exhibition match, trained alone in the hyperbolic time chamber when he agreed to fight in the tournament, and is specifically noted for ignoring and even getting angry at the idea of planning and coordinating for the tournament, somehow developing the exact same counter measure against something he had no idea would be at the tournament?

Why are you so intent on defending the embodiment of ass pull, the series? Should anyone be surprised over how many decades that a shonen series, DB of all series, had an ass pull?

At best this is inconsistent. Which should also not be surprising.

Yeah, obviously this is the only problem this show has ever had because someone asked "is this an asspull" and I said "of course it is".

I had a strange thought while watching Zeno use the "godpad" (eyeroll). What if, he's actually saving the people from the universes to some kind of "database"?

In addition, we as an audience haven't been given a reason to think of them as a credible threat. Their "fast" guy is slower than the good fighters in U7, their "strong" guy got easily overpowered, and their poison guy couldn't finish off U7's #5 fighter after poisoning the shit out of him.

Yeah, no shit. They obviously should have gone after some of the weaker fighters and waited for Goku and Vegeta to wear our.

In fact the ONLY PERSON in this entire tournament who has any fucking sense is Jiren. He's hanging back and waiting for almost all the other universes to lose their fighters, thus saving his strength for the very end, when everyone else is exhausted from fighting for their lives, for over half an hour non-stop.

Tactically speaking, when you've got two enemy armies and they're fighting each other, you DON'T fucking throw your own army into the fray. You wait until one side is taken out, and then curb-stomp the one remaining. It's goddamn obvious.

The garbage dump that is universe 9 doesn't really have the best people in charge. They got baited hard into gunning for universe 7 and were too fucking dumb to think tactically.

>In fact the ONLY PERSON in this entire tournament who has any fucking sense is Jiren.

Yeah, I could understand people running in like Frieza because it's the sadistic part of their character and they hate everyone they're working with, Goku because being autistic is part of his character, or even Hit who has had experience with inter-dimensional fights before and keeps winning with a special ability you really need to 1v1 him to figure out going all at it and he has a target/job completion mentality.

But Vegeta, 17, and 18 acting like retards makes no sense. Vegeta has shown as early as Namek as late as the Zamasu Arc, that he has plenty capability to work cooperatively and strategically with people to complete tasks for the sake of survival. He could just as easily have fallen into "As long as we know who's in charge here and I make all the calls because PRINCE OF ALL SAIYANS BLAH BLAH BLAH" mode instead of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Sayain mode but he didn't. I could understand if it was a one on one tournament or a one on one threat to the Earth and SAIYAN PRIDE, but it's not.

17's character has no consistent motivations or depth whatsoever so that's kind of an easy write off. 18 is well aware she isn't even particularly strong and has plenty of reason to want to stay around Krillin after training together specifically for the purpose of the tournament for duo moves and being married, but still went out on her own anyways.

He had completely forgotten about destroying any universe at the time Goku reminded him. I will say that Zeno is not really the one in charge.

I think it was around the time that Goku teleports back there to remind him of the tournament when Beerus said he would erase him if he did. He had completely forgotten about everything and didn't know what to do next until Goku reminded him of the tournament and destroying the universes. Even before we meet Zeno, it was said that he had already destroyed several universes during a temper tantrum. I believe that was around the time he was used to conclude the Goku Black Arc.

My best theory is that he's actually more of an ascended God of Destruction, one that destroys whole universes instead of just planets. Therefore, there has to be some kind of Creator God to balance that. The Great Priest is a good bet, just because his relationship with Zeno mirrors the kind of relationship Whis has with Beerus: he's subservient to some degree, while also being much more powerful.

>New episode

>Krillen gets eliminated in a dumb way

sigh

At least he got a "cool guy" moment when he saved 18, but that just gives rise to the question of what qualifies as "flight techniques", as he flew via energy blast. Realistically, nobody who has stamina left should get rung out because they should be able to "blast" their way back in.

I understand WHY flight had to be banned, considering the whole '"falling off the edge of the ring" bit, but it's been handled extremely poorly since it was introduced. It's bullshit when they had creatures that could fly naturally with wings or whatever, and DOUBLE bullshit where there's some magic somehow preventing everyone from using the ki-based flight technique. Logically, since learning that ability, everyone should be using it continually to help move and balance themselves during fights (like when they jump into the air and can change momentum or whatever shit). Suddenly removing it would be like cutting off a cat's tail: they'd be falling all over themselves and unable to properly coordinate their movements.

Really, like with so much else here, Toei just wrote themselves into a corner with that rule, and have had to real way to fix it. What they SHOULD have done is have the ring be surrounded by an invisible cylindrical barrier; if you touch that barrier, you're eliminated. It serves the same purpose of making a "ring-out" the only way to beat someone, without arbitrarily shutting off or banning certain abilities, while allowing other weird shit that accomplish the same thing.

Also, can we go more than THIRTY FUCKING SECONDS without commentary from the various angels and gods of destruction? It's getting extremely tiresome.

Anyway, next week is episode #100. I wonder if they have something planned or if it's just going to be the Mary Sue Saiyan Special.

He did manage to eliminate three others with 18. 3 for 1 ain't too bad. I wish they'd actually give him some more time with Frost though. Some wasted fucking potential having him just thrown off like that without any interaction.

There is only one flying technique. The grand priest specifically disabled it. It has been made clear that recovering with some form of physical propulsion that is not maneuvering in perfect 3D space with ki is not against the rules, such as using wings.

The is no question because it's god fiat.

So there was a whole group of Supreme Kai, including a Grand Supreme Kai.

And even if that were the case, "using your ki to maneuver your body in 3D space" is a simple to understand rule but it isn't really necessary to spell it out that way. Galick Gun and Kamehameha aren't really distinct from each other in any real way even though they're clearly different techniques. I don't think anyone was confused when Whis said, "You saiyans really like to finish enemies off with energy attacks, that's a bad habit."

I don't think anyone would be confused if Grand Priest said, "I've disabled energy attacks." and people started flying and fighting.

The latest chapter is up on Viz's site. I don't know how the official translation team can make so many fucking bizarre changes. If Goku's name wasn't so firmly established I'm sure they'd translate it as "Gok".

>Zamas

>Gowas

>Dabra

>Bobbidi

>Lord of lords

>Zenio

Worse than Niggastream.

The chapter itself is pretty mild. It resolves the arc about as unsatisfyingly as the anime, Zamasu doesn't go full Gygas and try to become reality though. The Zeno button gets remembered when Goku pats himself down for extra senzu beans, Zeno gets called in and he immediately wipes the universe (even though he said "world" according to Viz). The crew escape to U7 and they have an extended recovery time, Pilaf figures out how to adjust the time machine so it can jump to parallel, future timelines. Meaning Trunks and Mai can go back to a future that played out like Future Trunks' minus Zamasu genociding them. Trunks and Mai don't really have a good reason to go, Bulma even tells them to stay but they take off. Future Trunks also says he'll be dropping out of the Supreme Kai apprenticeship so no more healing powers for him. We end with Zeno meeting himself and going off to play.

Honestly the best part was Goku and Vegeta deciding the best option is to go down swinging even though they're both drained.

To be fair, the legendary status has always seemed to exist outside of the normal ssj structure and it's always as strong as it needed to be. In the first movie, Broli was only a bit stronger than ssj1 Goku and then he was dominating ssj2 Gohan in the second movie.

The other universe saiyans being stronger at lower ssj levels can be explained that their base levels are just naturally higher. That is, Caulifa, Kale and Cabba and the other saiyans from their universe are naturally stronger than their u7 counterparts except for Goku and Vegeta.

Power levels have been pretty meaningless for a while now. >>712199 This anon is correct. Super is going to get nearly as bloody as Z.

Also, did Zeno get rid of that Super Trooper with the rope prematurely or did they cut away from the violence before we could see him getting knocked off?

Reading the end of Zamasu arc is like watching something fail twice.

How is this series not worse than GT?

Dragon Ball Super is a mistake by concept alone.

How is muh god status a good justification of Beerus' or Zeno's acts when Zamasu is the villain in one arc?

How is off-screen training a good enough explanation for a bazillion level power up?

How is fighting a bunch of one-dimensional fags with no backstory interesting?

How is forcing an arc to make weaker characters relevant again after making Goku and Vegeta God-level a good idea? And why did they avoided all of the obvious powerups?

People talk about a theoretical Q Gospel written by Jesus himself. I can safely say that Akira Toriyama either senile or doesn't give a fuck anymore. Maybe we identify the key plot points in DBS written by Toriyama and get the general idea, we can unfuck DBS.

>BoG

Limit SSJG to pure saiyans of Universe 7 to have a good excuse to limit it to Goku and Vegeta.

Beerus is obviously bad in his job. Letting Maijin Buu retcon kill the other Supreme Kais was incompetence. Letting Freiza do his job for him while he sleeps. I would have Frieza ask Beerus for a powerup or training due to Frieza dutifully completing Beerus' obligations as the GoD prior to his death. Or have him revive Frieza for a day to explain the powerup?

It's basically the exact same thing as what happened with Star Wars. You had a guy who made a story based on a whole lot of existing mythology and lore, who had other people helping him along the creative process. Then, later on when he became extremely famous, he was allowed complete creative control over his story with zero censure or editing or even alternate opinions, at which point he was only basing it on the story that had already existed beforehand. The quality continues to decline as it becomes more and more "original" and twists into a copy or itself that isn't quite a parody of itself.

The manga normally gets things right but there's still gaps. Here's how I'd change things.

>BoG

Pure Saiyans only.

God Ki can only be damaged/blocked by those wielding God Ki.

Beerus is beyond Buu tier but his strength is derived from perfect Ki control and erasure techniques that let him rapidly shut down non-God challengers.

Overall BoG isn't that offensive, just add in a few asides and you can end a few future issues before they begin.

>Rof

Frieza comes back from the same effort, just clarify the whole, so evil his soul refuses to move on so Shenron can break his own rules. Alternatively have it be the same extra day trick that Baba pulls but done by a Frieza underling who figured out how to make it semi-permanent provided he doesn't over exert himself (tie the so evil stuff into the method), he comes to Earth for revenge but also to use his soldiers to retrieve the dragon balls.

Have SSB be False-God Ki, acting like an imitation with similar benefits but not on the same scale. It can fight Gods but it's not invincible. There's a bigger strength boost and Goku and Vegeta prefer it because there's no ritual required and it's easier to train up as a result.

The fight between Golden Frieza and the SSBs reveals that Frieza has tapped into the False-god Ki without realising (hence the crazy power boost and hell, throw in a line that his soldiers are getting buffed up from his Ki leaking out because he hasn't got it mastered and he's technically dead, giving a reason why they're such a threat still), maybe hint that the GoDs and Kais weren't always a permanent system and there were once many Gods long ago.

Final battle plays out similarly but with Vegeta saving the day while Goku deals with Frieza's underlings who are growing stronger from Ki bleed and have almost gathered the dragon balls. All the Z fighters are involved in trying to stop the summoning and hold off the army. Get scenes of battles all over earth featuring every fighter who didn't come to face Frieza as they chase and fight his soldiers. Nothing detailed, just give everyone some love and service.

None of this death laser penetrating Goku with his guard down UNLESS it's made clear that it had special, mystical, God fighting properties (it did get fired from that guy's ring from Memory). Make the shooter the mystic keeping Frieza present until that scene, then he gets dropped by Piccolo or someone and all hell breaks loose as Frieza realises he's on borrowed time and gets desperate and spiteful.

Earth is ALMOST destroyed. But, a revived Goku and allies stops the death ball while Vegeta ends Frieza.

Now brace for the full power of my autism in the next post.

>U6

Hint again that something caused the Kai+GoD system and that's why U6 has always had only one Supreme Kai. U7 was experimenting with a different hierarchy style. That way we don't need to question the Buu origins and don't need to worry about the other universes having different systems. A brief exchange is all it would take.

Include Buu, don't cocktease that shit. But, have him be the one to fight and lose to Frost instead of Goku. Give us a bit of a spectacle before Buu goes down. Then have the falling asleep gag play out and go from there for the rest of it.

NO KAIOKEN + SSB.

>Zamasu

My real problem is Future Trunks going back to the future and all that shit. It over complicates stuff and I'd rather keep him involved as a permanent member of present-U7. Though we're gonna need to do something about that hair.

Perfect SSB Ki control is almost mastered by Goku, he can get full power from it but it's exhausting. Vegeta has instead mastered perfect activation and uses this against Black and later on in desperation against Fused Zamasu.

Fused Zamasu is "defeated" by Vegeto using the hakai. It doesn't take because he's not a GoD and hasn't got the special privileges they do. Multiple Fused Zamasu occurs and Goku and Vegeta call on Future Zeno to ask for permission to hakai/get someone who can as a last ditch effort but he is so disturbed by Fused Zamasu that he instead erases the universe to be safe.

Start to elaborate on Kai+GoD system through Gowasu, Zamasu, Elder Kai and even Future Zeno. Something like mortals not being trusted with the potential power to challenge their creators as things get too chaotic. So the Kai+GoD system was established and enforced to ensure peace and maintain "balance". This is news even to Whis and Beerus. Hint at Great Priest being up to something when Future Zeno gets back and tournament is brought up.

One more should do it.

>Super Survival Arc

Great Priest is up to something.

Some angels are on our side, some aren't.

Hard to call what I'd like because it's not on yet in the manga and the anime is a mess anyway.

Sub out Roshi for Future Trunks (he's present as an advisor and coaches the team).

Frieza gets brought back by Beerus' suggestion after acknowledging his strength from RoF and we get a bit more info about God Ki and how some fighters might be wielding it or False-God Ki so it'd be good to bring someone who can help there. Nobody is happy and we build towards Frieza plotting his own revival again and usurping a GoD's place or even aiming for Zeno's spot. Turns out Frieza was always aware of the system but never wanted the top spot until he realised he might be strong enough to get there with his new form.

Also, we're raising the team cap to twelve to match the amount of universes. U7 packs Goku, Vegeta, Gohan (ultimate reactivated, nobody but Goku realises that there's some False-God Ki in there), Piccolo, Tien, Krillin,18, 17, Future Trunks, Frieza, Buu (fit or fat, no sleeping gag this time) and it's a toss up between Perfect Cell or a rebuilt (parts brought back by Shenron on Videl's request and built by Bulma but kept secret from the team until the tournament starts) 16. I'd want the last pick to stun the audience so hard that they wouldn't be able to think about alternatives because the last pick is that crazy. Cell would be fun for the interactions but would raise too many questions about his soul and probably piss people off. 16 would be awesome because we could get the full Android team together and have all sorts of fun dynamics to play off. Of course, he doesn't enjoy violence so I think a lot of his combat would be entirely defensive with him only really coming into play towards the late game. So let's say we pick 16 for now because everyone likes rocket punches.

So the tournament is announced during an exhibition match with U9. Stakes are made clear and we still get the whole sequence where Bergamo requests no universes be destroyed if he wins. Setting up Goku as a "villain", which is part of Grand Priest's plot. He accepts the request with the condition that if he detects Goku was holding back then all of U7 is destroyed immediately. Obviously Goku wins, but with a slight detail change; Bergamo isn't just blaming Goku for winning, he's blaming himself for losing. This was the universes' one chance at survival and he wasn't good enough to make it work. He leaves furious at Goku but also with himself. We also get the whole, "I want to see your true power" from Goku again.

We get a year for tournament preparations instead of what, two days? In that time the team forms besides Frieza and 16 (who gets his parts wished back in secret when Videl, Bulma and Chichi get worried that there's not going to be a full team and don't want the boys entering and have their own mini adventure as a B-story in one of the chapters (or as cover stories to tribute One Piece)). Everyone trains and gets stronger, Roshi steps in to share his techniques with Gohan, Piccolo and Krillin but also helps the group out with tactics and synchronisation. Tien politely declines to join as he's assumed a master role and wants to instead use the opportunity as a chance to raise up his school's strength by having them train alongside U7 and impart his techniques upon Krillin (secretly). He doesn't accept his spot until Goku instant transmissions Monaka in closer to the tournament date and then he immediately claims the spot to everyone's relief.

Frieza secretly gets notified early on by Goku, Yamcha, Beerus and Whis that he may be needed (Goku is considering Yamcha until the God Ki argument is made and Yamcha opts to assist with training to grow stronger and pass on techniques as inspired by Tien). The deal for his revival is struck but on the terms that it's only if he's the last one standing. Frieza spends the year in Hell plotting, meditating and focusing his Ki so he can wipe U7 when the last few fighters remain because even he thinks they've got a pretty good shot at victory.

Apparently I wrote a lot more than I thought. One more post.


 No.712314

>>712313

Final post.

The team is formed, Goku realises he miscounted and brings in both Yamcha and Monaka to rock paper scissors for the spot. Both are terrified until the Saiyan wife trio announce they'd prepared for this and unveil their entrant who gets revealed as 16 on the last page of that chapter. Tell me that wouldn't blow people's dicks off.

The tournament itself plays out with chapters highlighting each character's power growth and everyone gets their cool moment. Fighters are immediately erased upon being knocked out of bounds and it's U10 that ends up going first once they lose team muscle. I'd have U9 cling on with Bergamo, Lavender and Basil having worked their asses off in the past year to get stronger (maybe some sort of False-God Ki access with a later upgrade to God Ki on Bergamo as a last ditch effort via ritual from his bros).

The actual plot would arise once enough universes were down, Grand Priest starts his usurpation and used the tournament as a way to cut the numbers of those who might oppose him and his loyal children. Both Zenos are attacked and immobilised, the rest of the tournament are the remaining fighters from all disloyal universes teaming up to stop the Angels taking over. Frieza would try to play off both sides but ultimately sides with the heroes when the Grand Priest offers him a spot as his underling.

The Justice team fight the heroes out of duty and belief that Goku and co are the usurpers (Grand Priest playing everyone off each other and retreating into some other realm with his loyal kids) but in defeat or near it realise the truth and we get Goku, Vegeta, Jiren, Bergamo and whatever other survivors remain taking on the Angels and Grand Priest. Culminating in a new form for Goku and Vegeta and ending with them finally being in synch and mastering their Ki usage (bringing it all the way back to RoF where Whis talked about that shit) to defeat the Grand Priest with support from everyone else.

That's my 3AM fanfiction done. I don't know why I bothered to write all this. I hope you enjoyed the fruits of my insomnia.

I know people are saying the movies were never canon, and obviously that's true, but Super does reference filler only stuff (even in this very episode, with the Yardrat design), and the filler and movies reference each other, so Broly should be canon to Super.

>>712327

That's clearly what it was intended to be, but then I guess the justification for Broly is that while Goku is a super saiyan who appeared after a thousand years, Broly is the actual one prophecised to be born a thousand years after the last one.

Eva started it. Parents vocally protested against the show's content, specifically when Misato and Kaji fucked off screen and when Eva 01 ate an Angel. The backlash caused sponsors to pull out and to move the show from an after school timeslot to an evening one. It's been downhill ever since

Literally all of Super has been like this. A super-edgy God of Destruction who goes around destroying planets on a whim. Goku becoming a Super Saiyan "God". Frieza coming back with a Golden transformation. New kinds of Super Saiyan that just change the hair color to blue and pink. Goku and Vegeta fusing to become Vegetto again using their new Super Saiyan. A new planet (in this case universe) filled with Mary Sue Saiyans to join the cast. A giant tournament filled with all sorts of fighters from all over the universe (in this case multiverse). This is EXACTLY the kind of Dragonball AF-esque shit that my friends and I came up with in middle school. Bunch of idiot 12-year-olds fanwanking over Dragonball, and arguably some of the stuff we invented was BETTER than Super.

The manga has to resolve itself faster than the anime. Having to resolve Goku's promise to Zeno doomed Future Trunks' timeline. The only improvement that the manga made to the ending is the main timeline was also at risk because of the time machine in Universe 12. Future Trunks didn't get stronger. In DBZ, he became strong enough to defeat the two androids in his timeline by himself. In DBS, his only power up is getting healing powers by being a Supreme Kai's apprentice which he gave up mostly because he never intended to be a Supreme Kai anyway (partly considering that the current Supreme Kai will most likely outlive him). DBS fell into the writing hole that DBZ managed to avoid, using time travel to undo any consequences. I wanted Future Trunks to become the new Supreme Kai (he can use the time ring to be time cop that he was always meant to be) but that can't work with the Future Zeno destroys the multiverse.

>>713103

>Literally all of Super has been like this. A super-edgy God of Destruction who goes around destroying planets on a whim.

This. Dragon Ball never had gods that had morality that doesn't align with human morality before. Introducing a God of Destruction is pretty new territory but that means that they needed to be more careful. They keep using the God status as an excuse to genocide but it is apparently bad when Zamasu does it. The manga and movies were a lot more careful about this. While Beerus didn't need to be a good person, he needed to have some kind of bounds, standards, or principles. Gowasu said that his job was to destroy evil in a large scale. While Supreme Kai said that Beerus was suppose to kill Buu. The anime was the worst with it. He destroys planets for arbitrary reasons. He makes unreasonable demands. He takes sides. In the manga and movie, he destroyed a planet for serving him a poisoned meal. In the anime, he destroyed a stone age civilization for not recognizing him and giving him his hunt. In both the manga and movie, Beerus deliberately spared Earth. In the anime, he was going to destroy Earth for Goku not being able to beat him. Not only that he risked destroying the entire universe with that gay-ass 3 punches colliding will destroy the entire universe. Don't get me wrong, all versions made it clear that Beerus is bad in his job. Champa is just as bad if not worse with him asking Vados to destroy for him, destroying planets from other universes, and offering Hit a travel cube. However the anime makes it out that they don't even really have rules. Elder Supreme Kai probably called him out on his shit but no trap him in the z sword.

Fuck DBS.

>>713119

Maybe the reason for destroying universes in the Universe Survival Arc should be all of the fuck ups instead of average power levels because that basically means that the most powerful universes won't even fight. Beerus and Champa suck at their jobs and SSJB Vegito is already stronger than Beerus in the manga so maybe make their fault too.


 No.713173

>>713111

It resolved better than the anime, but had to follow the DBS general story path. So Trunk's world was essentially ruined by zamasu. Staying in his universe would've been a death wish. No matter where he went, Zamasu would've simply killed everything until only he remained. So nuking the universe would make sense. Especially considering that now that everyone is dead there is no way he could ever bring them back to life.
