Hey guys. I’m here with a rather interesting post today. Before the release of Dragon Ball Super, the franchise seemed to have died down. Dragon Ball franchise had got the worst ever addition to its franchise. Yes. I am talking about the live action Dragon Ball movie which completely wrecked the Dragon Ball fanbase. It is a pretty well known movie, not because of the positives but because of the negatives. Dragon Ball: Evolution.
It was so horrible that the creator of the Dragon Ball franchise, Akira Toriyama had to come back and start creating Dragon Ball content. He commented about the whole thing in the 30th Anniversary Dragon Ball Super History Book. Here is what he said, “Dragon Ball once became a thing of the past to me, but after that, I got angry about the live action movie, re-wrote an entire movie script, and now I’m complaining about the quality of the new TV anime, so it seems that DB has grown on me much that I can’t leave it alone.”
Toriyama’s anger is legit. Toriyama is referring to the time when he came back in order to help with the script of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. The movie later proved to be the idea for the super hit, Dragon Ball Super. It is a pretty well known story that Toriyama was actually angry about how the Battle of Gods was originally supposed to be. So, he ended up changing the entire story for the movie.
Toriyama wasn’t particularly pleased with the quality of the animation in the series. Toriyama doesn’t shy away when it comes to these kind of things. When all is said and done, I would like to point out that however terrible the live action movie was, it turned out to be really helpful for the fans. It is possible that Toriyama would have never come back.
Dragon Ball Super would never have come into existence. So, Dragon Ball: Evolution did help the fans but it is still a terrible movie and the worst thing that has happened to the franchise. It is quite rightly hated by the fans.
That’s it from me.
Why [SPOILER] Will Be The One To Defeat Jiren!
Hey guys. Speculations are flying left regarding the ending of the Tournament of power. One thing that is common with all the theories is that, the end of the Tournament of Power would mean the end of Jiren’s unbeaten streak. He is super powerful and he is easily the strongest fighter in the Tournament of Power. Now in the previous of Dragon Ball Super which was episode 122, Jiren said something that has raised a few eyebrows. When Vegeta survived Jiren’s attack, Jiren said something rather interesting. Jiren said, “You will never be able to beat me…Your fists are arrogant. There isn’t a speck of purity in the self-righteous way you fight.”
This was one of the two events. Before that, he went on to ask Goku, why he wished to become stronger, and when asked the same, he responded with, “I seek that which lies beyond strength.” It may look like ordinary at first but after reading the whole theory, the outlook completely changes. This is believed to be the reason which will prove pivotal to his downfall. Jiren might actually have dropped a big hint on how to defeat him. Jiren will only be defeated by a warrior who has a pure heart and who has pure intentions. So, power alone wouldn’t be able to take down Jiren.
Jiren requires a powerful warrior who has pure intentions. That’s why so far Vegeta and Goku have failed to defeat him. They fight only to prove that they are the best and continue growing stronger simply to push their limits. Now when you think about it, who has got a pure heart in Universe 7? Goku and Vegeta? Nope. Freeza-sama? Yeah sure. Gohan? A lot of people believe that Gohan will get a larger role and if he is portrayed as the leader of Universe 7.
I don’t doubt that Gohan is the perfect choice for a leader. There are also several other speculations that Gohan will actually win the Tournament of Power. It’s a no-brainer that there is literally no way that Gohan can become so strong that he would defeat Jiren. In that sense, it’s completely understandable. However, what if it isn’t strength which is required to defeat Jiren.
