The early parts of these manga arcs are always the most exciting parts of them. Maybe it’s because they’re full of potential and all the Dragon Ball obsessed bloggers and Youtubers come up with a ton of new, more interesting possibilities than the stories themselves end up being. Or am I being too cynical do you think?
Due to me having major internet issues right now I can’t cobble any images together for this post. I couldn’t even manage to make a title image for it. Hopefully I’ll be back to normal by early next week.
Transitional chapter! Y’know, with the conclusion of the Moro story arc, I’d kind of hoped we’d finally get that time skip to the end of Z which has been at the back of my mind when anything perilous happens in Dragon Ball Super. And what with the events of the previous chapter, you’d think that it’d be closer than ever.
At this point, I feel like I could just as easily see the end of Z arc getting retconned out of existence. Which wouldn’t be the worst thing. Just age Goten and Trunks up for God’s sake.
A while back, when I was first getting back into watching anime and reading manga, I wrote a post talking about the romantic comedy genre, specifically, the harem style of story and my frustrations with it. They were the words of a person not yet versed in the tropes and archetypes that comes from well-worn genre.
That being said, I still feel like they’re words that come from an honest place. Now that time has passed and two of my favourite examples of the genre have ended, I thought I might return to the subject and do a follow-up to it. Bare in min though; I’m older, but non the wiser.
