At least they captured how funny Jiren is in that gif. Is the manga translated anywhere? I saw that even oolong appears and does something in the manga version of the prison planet stuff, makes me want to read it

you guys remember yamoshi? lul
Toriyama isn't new to making up stuff when asked something in interviews, but the Yamoshi story was so detailed I'm still genuinely surprised it was just something he said for that Q&A and wasn't even referenced in Broly.

Remember a while ago we discussed if one of us ever got to interview toriyama, just asking him made up dragon ball "facts" to see what he say?

I feel like Heroes should just be called "Dragon Ball Super GT" at this point.

I'm pretty sure that it was stated once that the angels aren't allowed to physically interfere with the affairs of mortals right? That's probably why El Grande Padre just dipped
Toei making Jiren look good. Thought they would have jobbed him by now
Well Jiren is still technically at roughly the same level as UI Goku so unless they were wanting to level up Goku even further than before he should still be able to handle most of what Goku can

New Heroes episode was bad as usual, but hey, we got this out of it.



That's not how timeslots work.
I remember Ajay going into this when he suspected that Super would be replaced when people argued that it could go in another time slot.

And personally liked this episode since Jiren looked bored fighting everyone and only got partly serious so UI Goku doesn’t look cooler than him.

Also, UI Goku punching non-Baby Vegeta is hilarious.

No, Fuji TV assigns what they want to what timeslots they want, usually in conversations with the producers of the shows. Fuji TV and Toei have a great relationship and Kitaro in the 8:30 timeslot would do better numbers than anything else that has been in that timeslot and they would have an hour and a half of popular anime.

I'm actually loving Kitaro, so I'm kind of happy about this. I'd take more weekly Super anime too, but that certainly will come in the near future, while after Kitaro ends it might take another 10 years for a new season and it might not be anything like the current one, which has become something fairly unique.
Same. Straight up folks, Kitaro is a pretty damn good show.

If Super doesn't return this year, it'll probably be next year for the Olympics, so it's not like it'll be gone long.

So what was different last year when Ajay said Kitaro had to take Dragon Ball Super’s time slot because there was no where else to put it?

Damn i am enjoying the insanity of heroes. Goku needs to train with high priest guy in canon. Also need Cumber in canon.

That Heroes anime is just all out insanity. Shame the battles suuuuuuucccckkkkkk, otherwise it would have at least some potential as something to watch propely until we get a new show.

I do admit, an episode where Jiren just goes around the Z+Super timeline, literally curbstomping all the villains without saying more than a word or two at a time would be funny as hell.

What is everyone's thoughts on Goku's portrayal in Super as a whole?

He was always goofy both as a child and in Z but I feel they made him a little too goofy in Super. It's almost to the point where he's like mentally handicapped, but I will admit this tone did bring some laughs when dealing with Beerus like Goku's interactions with Grand Zeno and seeing Beerus sweat the entire time. Goku acting so casually towards omnipresent deities capable of destroying space and time in a blink of an eye is the best parts and works with Goku's overly dumb and naive nature in Super.

I think the only times he was actually serious was when Zamasu revealed he stole his body and killed his family. That and some Frieza / Jiren interactions, but even with Jiren he was treating it more like a fun time getting stronger sort of thing.

You know Heroes is bad when they somehow turned Super Vegeta into his GT jobber self by making him Baby again.

I thought the tournament of power did a good job of balancing his serious side and his goofy side, the rest of Super not as much

He was serious a lot more than that.

It was really extreme in the Future Trunks arc. It's fine everywhere else.

ToP Goku is definitely my favorite Goku in Super.
This. Hell for me, ToP Goku is my favorite Goku tier with Kid Goku.

Eh he wasn’t. He was pretty serious/pretty in character honestly for most of Super. Toei’s is she is that there are some occasions like how he acted where he met Zamasu. But I’m like, he seemed pretty serious when had to be against Jiren, Beerus, Freeza, and Hit of course with Hit it was more of a competitive sense of being serious as there were no real stakes. He treated fighting Jiren pretty seriously I don’t really see how you could say otherwise. He wasn’t really treating it like it was a fun time. Considering he was trying his very best to match Jiren who routinely kicked his ass.

Big J disrespectful as fuck. Legit is Jiren at his best.

Eh I definitley don't agree with all of this though. Black saga is obviously not true for me, but having just read the manga from DB to DBZ, I think he is definitley less silly in DBZ than in Super as a whole.

Nothing is as bad as his Fighter Z depiction though. He is WAY too nonchalant and upbeat about too many of the situaitons going on there, it just makes him annoying to listen to sometimes lol.

I mean he was serious in the Black arc the moment they encountered Black in the future. Legit he’s pretty damn serious during their time in the future when they were fighting Black and Zamasu.

Super Goku is definitely goofier and more relaxed in general than Z Goku. I wouldn’t argue that. Though how relaxed or unserious he is means very little to me as beyond that I find Super’s Goku (outside the ToP) boring as fuck. Z Goku is largely boring as fuck to me too.

FighterZ Goku is too relaxed
