My bad for posting this in the wrong section, didn't know if manga was considered comic in HC.

And Alani, basically. Roshi > Beerus

So do people like Super?  It looks like it has the same level of thought put into it that GT did, and people hated GT.

(I actually liked GT more)

I think Super may handled better on a professional level. It is actually written better and more care has gone into it, but it's WAY more fanfic-y than GT even was. GT actually had better stories; they were just done crazily. Super has crappy stories done somewhat well. So... eh.

Well, the Japanese word for comic is Manga, so there's that.

Also, manga is not movies, TV shows, or books, so it definitely does not belong there.

Wow, that's right up there with "Cody Rhodes likes being Stardust" on how much I disagree with you. :)

I just couldn't get into GT at all. The stories and the characters were just bad.


Super has normally good animation, I liked that Future Trunks got a moment to shine, a bunch of great new characters, Vegeta really has some great moments (the true hero of the anime). And most of all---it proves how horrible a person Goku is as he's constantly endangering countless others because he likes to fight.

I thought it was a good mix of Dragonball and Z, wackiness and fighting.

And the tournament of power was awesome. :)

SS4 > any of the shit "God" or "Instinct" forms in Super.

Also, the whole BS about Frieza training for 4 months or whatever and going from getting shit on by Super Saiyans to being even with SS Blue is stupid.

SS4 is ugly dude! The only time I like looking at that form is watching SlickGoku on YouTube. :)

And nothing tops Royal Blue Vegeta. Plus, even on the Wizardboards, I said silver should have been the next color power up. Gold to Silver, makes sense to me.

And I think Freeza training makes sense. Just from DBZ, I was under the impression that he never did any training at all, he was just born naturally that powerful. So him actually go through four months of hell to get stronger makes sense. Heck, you have the Hyperbolic Chamber where the heroes train for a year and come out a level or two higher.

Return of F was almost EXACTLY what happened in a fanfic called "The Power of One" I read back in 2000. Only major difference was Frieza went and trained in a desert on Earth for 2 weeks, IN SECRET, because he learned a superior way to mask power levels somehow. His form was golden, but I think it was a mix of Final and Koola form.

I enjoyed Super despite it having plenty of flaws. GT had great concepts just poor executions. For example, the idea of overusing the dragonballs and a new enemy arises after all this time? It makes sense for that world. A lone survivor from a planet that the saiyans destroyed looking for revenge? Made sense.

Super had better use of other character, character development, and damn good fights. It had problems with power scaling and some narrative plotholes but its fun that Z has had a sequel and the movie looks great.

Super was a nonsensical hot mess of shit. GT was bad, but damn, Super was
just flat out retarded in levels even worse than GT.
