Kinda of. He was sorry his assistant had to ink in Goku's hair so he decided SS would have a lighter shade of hair. Super Saiyan was something he worked on the entire arc but it being a form wasn't finalized to closer to its debut.

Makes me wonder what it could’ve been if it had been.

Seems the manga will be covering DBS: Super Hero next.

Maybe it’ll have connections to the movie, but the teaser image they released had Goten and Trunks, not Gohan and Piccolo. Maybe it’ll be a loose and light adaptation of the movie before moving into the next big thing?

There was someone on Twitter that clarified the new arc starts before Superhero, and ends with it. So basically a manga version of Superhero.

Ah okay that makes sense. I have mixed feelings on that. On one hand, Superhero felt like it could’ve easily been expanded. It worked well as a movie, and I was honestly more excited with what’s going on with Black Frieza. I sort of want to get through this ASAP, and wouldn’t mind if it was shorter than the other manga arcs.

I wonder what changes will be made. Maybe Perfect Max Cell?

I think the big revelation will be that the reason Goku and Vegeta decided to start training with Broly on Beerus' planet is specifically to prepare for Black Frieza. One thing to keep in mind there's supposedly only like 1-2 years left between Super Hero and the end of Z. There's not much time left to fit another huge arc in, that's probably why they're adapting Super Hero instead. Plus of course to tie up any discrepancies made by the fact Super Hero was written before the manga arcs.

Here are some of My Unpopular Opinions on DBZ

Heres some Unpopular Opinions of mine


-I Think SSJ4 Is way better then almost every form in Super

-GT has better Animation and better characterazation of Goku then in Super

-I find android 13 highly underrated

-I think Nappa is a better character then raditz though i like Raditz

-U6 sayians shouldnt be that strong and i dont like alot of them besides Cabba and maybe kale

-Zangya is the most interesting and Greatest Character in Movie 9 and she should be canon unlike the bland Bojack

-I think Z Bardock and Fasha have the best sayian armor designs

-I think Janemba is the best DBZ Movie Villain though i Like Cooler and Z broly

-Z Broly is better then Super Broly

-Black Frieza is stronger then Beerus

-DBZ shouldve ended at the frieza or cell sagas

-Cell Saga has the best soundtrack in DBZ

-the BF score for the american dub is still pretty cool and epic

-Super has the 3 worst Archs in DBZ the 1,2 and 4 ones

-Friezas best design is in his first form

-the Sayians Tails shouldve been kept

Why did Toriyama feel the need to make Goku such a callous, braindead moron? Did he really think that good characterization all comes down to getting a laugh out of someone?

That's how he imagined Goku from the start. Funimation decided to make him Superman.

That’s just bad taste on the creator’s part.

I love Zs characterization of Goku

Supers fine to me but they shouldve done his character like Z did
