In this post, I want to talk about the upcoming Dragon Ball Super movie and some of the most interesting details that we found out about the movie recently. Dragon Ball Super Broly was announced back in March, and since then we got a lot of new information regarding the film. The most interesting stuff we found is the new character designs that have been drawn by Naohiro Shintani.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly – Update
Now for those of you who don’t know, the previous character designer for Dragon Ball Super was Tadayoshi Yamamuro. Shintani has much better-looking designs, and animators can do a better job with these character designs as well. So a couple of months ago, the new character designs for Goku and Vegeta came out.
We could see both of them in their base form, the Super Saiyan form, interestingly enough Super Saiyan God form, and of course Super Saiyan blue form. The interesting detail here was that Goku did not have the Ultra Instinct character design. But the explanation for that would be the Goku has not mastered Ultra Instinct yet, so he probably is not able to use it, and that’s why the character designs do not feature Ultra instinct Goku. On the other hand, we know that Vegeta has what is called ‘Super Saiyan Blue Evolution,’ but Vegeta’s Super Saiyan Blue Evolution was also not in the character designs.
You could argue that they’re keeping Super Saiyan Blue evolution a secret, but the thing is, he has completely mastered this technique; unlike Goku’s Ultra Instinct. If Goku Ultra Instinct doesn’t feature, that’s probably because he doesn’t know how to do it. Vegeta, on the other hand, has completely master Super Saiyan Blue Evolution and its just confusing that the form hasn’t been listed there. Now recently we got an interview with the director and the storyboarder of Dragon Ball Super Episode 131, Megumi Ishitani, and she basically said the whole Vegeta Blue Evolution form is ‘anime-only.’
When it comes to power, she also said that it is roughly on the same level as Goku’s Kaioken Blue. It’s possible that Super Saiyan Blue Evolution will make it to the movie, but that’s only if Toei asks Toriyama to put the form in the movie, or if Toriyama likes this form of Vegeta and decides to include it.
So what are your thoughts on Super Saiyan Blue Evolution appearing in the movie? Do you want this form to be in the movie, or do you think that this whole form was just a mistake? Let me know in the comments below!
