DBS Broly is the last DLC character for the second season pass. There is no release date yet. What do you think about this version of Broly?

Jiren hates Dragons? Talking about Dragon Ball Super episode 127 *Spoilers Discussion*

If Jiren was in Pokemon trainer, he would probably not have any dragon type Pokemon in his party or if he was in Yu-Gi-Oh!, he would be the one to destroy all of Kaiba’s Blue-Eyes White Dragons. If you don’t know what I am talking about, it’s about the recent English Dub episode of Dragon Ball Super on Toonami on Sept 7th. In episode 127 of Dragon Ball Super. Jiren is the last remaining fighter from Universe 11 and he takes on Universe 7 warriors (Goku. Vegeta, 17 and Frieza). Jiren easily dispatches everyone on his own and the god of destruction Belmond tells everyone the reason why Jiren is strong. He tells everyone that Jiren, as a child, lost his parents from an unknown powerful enemy. He was spared and he was raised by a martial artist who taught him and his students to fight. Unfortunately, the same enemy kills half of the students and even his master. Jiren tries to convince the survivors to work together and fight this enemy, but they all leave him. Back in the present, Jiren makes a comment about having the benefits of strength.

Depending on which language you prefer, Jiren’s response is different. In the original Japanese, Jiren states that having strength is important and having incredible strength will forgive everything including the past. However, in the English Dub provided by Funimation, Jiren gives a weird “DIO” speech about strength. He tells Android 17 about having strength and his opinion on the dragon from Super Dragon Balls. He comments that he doesn’t trust anyone including the dragon and all dragons. He thinks his strength will even go beyond time itself

The reason why I am writing about this is because I been seeing people these past couple of days making of Jiren and commenting on the awkward English Dub. In my opinion, as much as I prefer watching Dragon Ball in English, I did think it was kind of awkward. I felt like I was watching JoJo Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders. The voice of Jiren is Patrick Seitz, the same guy who voices Dio from JoJo and Franky from One Piece. Hearing this dialogue made me see Jiren as Dio instead.

What do you guys think about this dialogue? Time to include this text to your Dragon Ball Super memes folder.

Happy 30th Anniversary Dragon Ball Z – My top 5 characters I wish to see canon in Dragon Ball

See the source image

Remember the news that Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama was involve with making the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly? Because of his involvement, fans rejoiced and saw that after all these years, the antagonist Broly was going to be canon and be part of the Dragon Ball universe. Not only him, but we also get see characters like Bardock, Gogeta and even Goku’s mother Gine as canon; Gine first made her appearance in the manga Jaco: The Galactic Patrolman manga in a special chapter called Dragon Ball Minus. This is could be good or bad news since this means that Toriyama retconned the story. Meaning, we don’t see Bardock’s old friends from the movie Bardock: The Father of Goku or we don’t see his Super Saiyan transformation Episode of Bardock. Regardless of the changes, fans was still happy to see these characters canon and part of the main story. Just like I mentioned before with Bardock, this also means that Toriyama changed Broly. In the DBZ movies, Toriyama did designed Broly but he wasn’t part of the past movies and Broly was just another noncanon villain in the DBZ movies like Cooler or Lord Slug. Broly made more appearances in three movies due to popularity and seeing him come back as canon, he is involved with the main story. Now here is the main topic of this post: What if Toriyama said today that he wanted to do another Dragon Ball movie and bring back and character that was originally noncanon? What if Dragon Ball Super comes back and he wants to reintroduce a character he designed and be in the Dragon Ball Super? I have five characters in my mind that I would love to see return. These characters are from the past DBZ movies and filler arcs of Z. This is also a tribute to the 30 years of the Dragon Ball Z anime! Happy Anniversary Dragon Ball Z and thank you for the characters and story!

*Warning: Spoilers!

5. Pikkon (Dragon Ball Z)

See the source image

Remember that epic fight with Goku and Hit in Dragon Ball Super where Goku used Kaioken and Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan together? Before that happened, Dragon Ball veterans saw something similar in the classic Dragon Ball Z anime. In Dragon Ball Z, this anime did have filler that was not part of the original manga. Taking place after the events of the Cell Games, Goku is dead and rather than training with King Kai, he decides to part in tournament where all the Kais come together and pit their strongest warriors and see who is the strongest, in thus this leads to the Other World Tournament episodes.  In this filler, Goku and Pikkon are faced against each other and both are equally matched. Despite Pikkon being stronger than Frieza and even Cell, Goku has an ace up his sleeve. He transform into Super Saiyan and mixed his attacks with Kaioken for a boost.

What I am trying to say is that even though Pikkon is not noncanon, I did like him and I really like the friendship with him and Goku. I am also impressed how strong he is. It was mentioned in Bio Broly that when Broly died, King Kai wanted Goku and Pikkon stop Broly rampaging in the Other World. If Pikkon ever comes back, I would love to see him Super where Goku could team up with Goku and fight with dead warriors for training.

4. Tapion (Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragons)

See the source image

He didn’t show up in the filler episodes but he appeared in the noncanon Z movies. Tapion is a new character introduced in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon,. He is a mysterious hero who is on a quest to prevent the powerful monster Hirudegarn from destroying the world. I pick him because I like friendship between Kid Trunks and him. In the movie, Trunks becomes interested in him and sees that looks like a very cool hero and Tapion soon begins to like him since he reminds him of his younger brother who helped prevented the rampaging monster from rampage years ago. In the end of the movie, the monster slain and as Tapion returns him home, he gives powerful sword to Trunks. In the credits, we see Trunks wielding a sword and slaying Frieza after the events in Namek. I would love to see Toriyama bring back Trunks again and go over the details on how did he get the sword. I could possible see him referred or at least explained in a movie focusing only on Trunks.

3. Bojack (Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound)

See the source image

Remember this muscled green giant? Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound introduced Bojack and his minions and we got see how scary they are. It is mentioned by King Kai that all four Kais sealed Bojack and his servants because they were evil and they had too power to be stopped in the galaxy; however, after King Kai died from Cell because of Goku, the seal is broken Bojack and his crew escapes and decides to have fun by attacking Earth. With Goku out of the picture, it’s up to Gohan and the Z-Warriors to stop him. If Bojack ever comes back, I would love to see him in the sequel/Dragon Ball Super anime. In the manga, DBS is still going and Goku and Vegeta are faced against a powerful energy stealing foe called Moro and the only one who can match against him is Majin Buu. What if while Goku and Vegeta are away, what if there is new threat and Gohan is Earth’s last resort. It was mentioned a while back that Toriyama planned to have Gohan to be the main protagonist in Dragon Ball Z when it first started, but then he became a side character since fans loved Goku more than Gohan. I would love to see Gohan in action and show fans that he still the same kid who once saved the world from Cell. He did come back strong in Dragon Ball Super in the last arc, but I would like to see him fight in a battle of life and death in the same way in Android Saga.

2. Slug (Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug)

See the source image

Goku can’t catch a break with evil Namekians. In Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, Goku and his friends must stop the evil Namekian Lord Slug from freezing the planet. In a similar way like Evil King Piccolo in the Dragon Ball classic anime, Goku is faced against a young Lord Slug in his prime and just like King Piccolo, he is evil to the core and will do what it takes to kill anyone stopping his goals. Goku barely made it out alive when he almost tapped into a Super Saiyan form and Gohan using his whistling skills to weaken Slug. Just like my point with Gohan and Bojack, what if the earth needed Piccolo’s protection. I could see an arc in Dragon Ball Super where Piccolo teams up with Gohan and fight against Slug. Not only Piccolo would get the spotlight, but I would love to see the teacher-student relationship with Gohan and Piccolo.

1. Cooler (Dragon Ball Z: Cooler’s Revenge)

See the source image

Just like Broly, Cooler is another movie character that gets a lot of popularity from Dragon Ball Z fans. Cooler made his appearance in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Cooler’s Revenge and then came back again as a metal version called Metal Cooler in Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler. Cooler is the older brother of Frieza and just like him, he is heartless. He comes to Earth to find the one who killed his brother and he is not doing this to avenge him, he wants to kill to honor the family and his own pride. It’s mentioned in the movie that he was already planning to kill Frieza to shut him up. Cooler will go beyond and even try to kill Goku’s friends in order to see him go mad. Cooler has gotten a lot attention even in the video games that he was added in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 in the PS2 and he came back in the Dragon Ball Heroes anime spinoff where he learned how to transform into Golden Cooler. He is also a DLC character in FighterZ along with Broly and Bardock. In Dragon Ball Super, he doesn’t show up at all and the only Frieza-like character we got was Frost in Universe 6. I would love to see story focusing on Frieza and his race. We could learn about his relationship with his brother and his father King Cold.

That’s my top 5 characters I want to see canon in Toriyama’s movies and Dragon Ball Super. What about you guys? Do you have any characters that you want to be canon? Comment down below.

Dragon Ball Super Broly movie discussion: Predictions, Theories and Possibilities!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a nice day today in the internet world. As we are in September, get ready to enter the fall season. Coming in fall, we have the remastered movie of the classic fan favorite Dragon Ball Z movie Dragon Ball Z: The Legendary Super Saiyan Broly in select theaters. The movie will be playing in September 15th and 17th. More Dragon Ball Z movies and specials are coming this fall in November and they are called, Fusion Reborn (12th movie) and Bardock: The Father of Goku (TV special). You might be wondering why are these movies chosen and are premiering in theaters. Before I tell, let me what’s the special occasion with these DB movies. It’s been announced that there is going to be a Dragon Ball Super movie this late 2018 and early 2019 (Japan will have it on December and North America is on January). The movie is titled Dragon Ball Super: Broly and according to resources, Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama will be involved with the movie and that also means that the fan favorite antagonist Broly will finally be canon to the series.

Masako Nozawa in Doragon bôru chô: Burorî - Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018)

With this said, this is what I want to talk about. I want to talk about the things I noticed with the Dragon Ball Super movie and what I think what we should expect from the things happening around us. First off, let’s talk about what is this movie about. According to the trailer, the story takes place after the last episode of Dragon Ball Super where the Tournament of Powers is over and Goku and his friends are living in peace. The peace is suddenly over when Goku and Vegeta meets a mysterious group led by Paragus and his son Broly. Broly is sent to fight both Goku and Vegeta and surprisingly overwhelms them with his power. It’s also hinted that Frieza gets involved too fighting the monster Saiyan. We do see some glimpse  of the Saiyan Race when we see some babies and other Saiyans.

A movie like this sure gets any Dragon Ball fan excited. For me, I am hyped for 2019 with this movie and I have all the time to wait. While I wait, I took the time to watch this trailer and also research the past Dragon Ball Z movies. After going over stuff, I feel like the new Dragon Ball Super film is going to borrow key elements from these past movies and specials. Here is the breakdown from my information gathering skills:

Dragon Ball Z: Broly the Legendary Super Saiyan – Broly and Paragus is back!

Obviously shown on the title, Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie will have the characters Broly and Paragus and they will officially be canon. Instead of using the same designs from the DBZ movie, Toriyama decides to update and modify the designs of both Broly and Paragus. Seen in the video and pictures, Broly appears with a”barbarian” appearance by donning the Saiyan armor with a fur pel belt. Paragus stll has the scar, damage eye like in the old movie, but appears very old with gray hair and a long beard. It is also shown in the video that he tells Broly to go and attack without any mind device suppressing his rage. It could be possible that Paragus can control Broly. Overall with this point, DBS: Broly and DBZ Broly will still retain the same characters but with updated appearances.

Bardock: The Father of Goku – Possible history on the Super Saiyan God?

Bardock: The Father of Goku is a TV special which tells the back story about Goku’s father Bardock and he saw a vision about the fate the Saiyan race and how Frieza was going to rise and then fall by the hands of Goku.

I feel like this is another thing to point because I feel Dragon Ball Super: Broly is probably give in depth about the Saiyans past and might even mention about Friez’a hate towards the Sayians. Going back to an old post I wrote about the movie announcement, it is hinted that the Dragon Ball movie will be discussing about the Saiyan’s true power. According to Toei Animation site, the new movie theme will be about “the origin of the Saiyan’s power and what it means to be a Saiyan.” It got me thinking, what if we get to learn about the Super Saiyan God as well. It was mentioned in the Battle of Gods movie that a group of Saiyans work together and channeled their energy into one Saiyan that warrior became a Super Saiyan God. The Super Saiyan God was very powerful, but the warrior lost its power and disappeared. Here’s another what if scenario. What if Paragus tried to turn Broly into a Super Saiyan God?We know that Broly is a powerful warrior born with a high power level and was able to transform into a Super Saiyan really early. In the DBZ movie, Paragus used his son’s powers to bring fear other planets and even tried to kill Vegeta in acts of revenge against his father, King Vegeta. What if in DBS Broly, Paragus tried to experiment and use his own son to gain the Super Saiyan God powers? As usual with Frieza, he destroyed the Saiyan race and the planet because he saw how powerful Saiyans get and was afraid they would overthrow him.

Fusion Reborn – Possible new SSB Gogeta?

Last but not least, we have the Dragon Ball Z movie Fusion Reborn. Fusion Reborn is the 12th movie in the series which tells the story about Goku, Vegeta and Pikkon fighting against an evil dimensional warrior named Janemba who is wrecking havoc in the Other World where the dead is among the living. Janemba get so strong that not even Goku and Vegeta could take him on by themselves. The ace in the card is where Goku and Vegeta performs the Fusion dance and become Gogeta and defeats Janemba.

As far we know, Goku and Vegeta are going to be the known Z-Fighters to fight against Broly. I have my specualtions after reading a fellow blogger’s post named bookishnerdygirl who found some interesting information about upcoming updates to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. According to her blog, she found out some information stating that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be adding some more DLC for the game. It’s hinted that DBS version of Broly will be in the game, but it sounds like a “new form” of Gogeta appear in the game. It could be possible that Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie will include Gogeta or for the most part Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta. Gogeta is a powerful warrior because it’s the fused form of Goku and Vegeta who known as the strongest Saiyans on Earth. Besides the DBZ movie, Gogeta doesn’t get much attention unless you play the video games. If Gogeta does appear in this new movie, he will be canon to the series and we might see some new powers like obtaining SSB. In a sidenote, Goku and Vegeta has fused before but with the Potara earings fusion and became Vegito due to circumstances. They became Super Vegito when fighting against Majin Buu (or known as Super Buu) in DBZ. They brought back Vegito and gave him the Super Saiyan Blue in Dragon Ball Super when they fought against the fused villain Zamasu (fused by Zamasu and Goku Black).

Conclusion: Long Story Short

With this extensive information, here is my possible prediction to Dragon Ball Super: Broly. The new movie will be borrowing elements from past movies and will incorporate something entirely new to fans. We will be getting Broly and Paragus in Toriyama’s involvement. We might get more information about the Saiyans, Super Saiyan God and maybe about Frieza’s involvement with the Saiyans. We could see a possible chance of having Gogeta on the big screen and being part of the main story. Maybe the reason why these two movies and special is being brought back to theaters to help refresh the memories of fans and give us hints of possiblities in the new DBS movie.
