I'm happy that Gohan is back to being relevant. No more of that school boy BS.
Man, all Toriyama wanted was to let Gohan study and have a family and enjoy his life as a scholar and all you fanboys want is too see him suffer and struggle ;(

Okay I gotta stop you right there because Toriyama's paneling skills are second to none. There is a reason he inspired a whole generation of manga artists.

I'd struggle to think of any other shonen author in the last 30 or so years whose fights practically leap off the page like his.
You know... I really should just read this manga series in color.

I mean, I've never actually read it before so... Why not?

Also:



Another Piccolo power-up!?

I was actually lamenting about this to my friend yesterday, sadly the only arcs that have been localized in English in color are Saiyan and Freeza.

Trust me, even unofficial versions don't exist as far as I can tell. I've been hankering to do a reread of the whole manga for a while but the fact that the color translation is incomplete just kills me. That said if you've never read the manga at all, it's definitely still a must read even in black and white.

UGH

It's either a read-through of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z in color or another manga that I just read about online.

Of course, I might just ignore those two and go for something completely different at random like I did last time.

I just want a manga read-through at the same level as the one I did for Berserk.

I miss Berserk.

Oh wait I just realised Trunks' hair is blue now. I know the young adult version from the future timeline had blue hair (and it was originally blue in the manga), but they retained the purple hair for the kid version during Super. Weird.
Was it? Pretty sure both Bulma and Trunks had purple hair in the manga

My apologies, you are correct. They changed Bulma's hair colour for the anime and then gave Trunks his original manga hair colour but then made Future Trunks' hair blue in Super, presumably to match Bulma's anime hair colour. What a confusing way to handle everything. Although apparently Bulma's hair was blue in the very first chapter of the manga and then purple after that for the rest of the run.

Edit: And now I've just read that Toriyama started colouring Trunks' hair as blue from the Battle of Gods arc onwards in the manga. I'm just going to stop researching it because I'm confusing myself.

It's a fucking mind map.

Link from The Legend of Zelda series if he were written by Akira Toriyama like he were Goku:



Ganondorf would be Vegeta in this case.

Hey all.

Here's something cool to cheer you up:



And now time for the bad news to bring you down:

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Upholds Delay Following Studio Update

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero isn't looking so hot these days if a new report is right. The update comes straight from Japan as fans were given an update on the film and its status at Toei Animation. The news comes after the studio was targeted by hackers using ransomware, and if the update is right, then Dragon Ball Super has yet to find a release window following its original delay.

The update comes from NHK as the network released a statement to fans about Toei Animation's status. After all, the studio did inform the world it was targeted by a hack last month, and the ordeal forced several hit series to go on hiatus. Now, those shows have been put back on the schedule, but NHK has confirmed Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is still in limbo.

"The impact on production still continues and there's no way to fully recover," the report shared on behalf of the animation studio (via Chronicles). "[The] movie's release date is still uncertain."

Clearly, this is not the news fans wanted to hear, but NHK is handing out some sort of update at the very least. Ever since the internal hack was announced, Toei Animation has kept tight-lipped about the whole thing understandably. The studio's last update did assure fans an internal investigation was being done into the hack. No group or individual has come forward admitting involvement with the Dragon Ball Super hack. So for now, it seems Goku and his friends must wait around until their movie's fate is decided.

Yeah...

At this point: I'm going to just say that May is not a possibility so that I don't get my hopes up. June as well, I suppose.

The Japanese date got pushed back due to the Toei hack right? Wonder what the date'll be for the US

Looking like there'll be an option to watch it Japanese subtitled in the US so I'll see it in theaters for that.

Gonna see if my "they went to CG for this movie because they didn't want to animate Cell's spots frame by frame" theory plays out
