Shonen Jump Thread 3:Leaders of the New School

We're back.

One Piece is still running across the battle ground.

Bleach is getting convoluted.

Naruto is over.

Ass Class and Hero Academy are in festival mode.

And I lost track of World Trigger.

Wasn't it roughly 80% being the stated percentage of humans with quirks in this setting? People without unusual abilities are the minority here.

Its not only superheroes and villains that have powers, certainly seems possible for there to be police officers who either never wanted to be a superhero, failed at that whole business and took a different career path or who have quirks that weren't so suited to being superheroes.

Normal humans are uncommon Super heroes and villians, Super people are uncommon in normal jobs.

Exceptions to both rules exist so something like a Question or Batman who can grapple with Supers is very likely.

Thats not accurate, many people in normal jobs in the BnHA world would be 'super',
like the MC's cute chubby lovable mom who has limited telekinesis.

What's normal in our world is basically being disabled in theirs.

Its possible there's heroes in the series who don't have quirks at all which I'm not commenting on with this post,
though they wouldn't have received training at one of these official schools for heroism would they, even people in the support department have quirks like tech girl with the strange eyes.

One of the first things they were taught was to stop holding back to the common baseline like they do in normal society and really understand what they can achieve by using their unique powers in various tasks (to inspire them to think on how they can use their abilities and better control them in the trials they will face as costumed heroes)

If there were quirkless heroes, then Izuku wouldn't have had the idea that without a quirk he could never be a hero. His first little character arc pretty much requires there to be no quirkless heroes.

Like, it's done as poorly as it can be, but Bleach could have almost been interesting again, the idea of using Ichigo's retarded nonsense abilities to frame him for the murder of the soul king would have been great...if you hadn't fought your way in, every good idea is ruined BEFORE it's implemented, like shit Bleach is a really magical piece of garbage.

Except that he learned after the fight and his talk with Midoriya. He's still a rageaholic and easily provoked, but he does try to analyze the situation and even incorporated his teammates into his attacks during the cavalry battle. He's not quite that one-dimensional. Otherwise he wouldn't be here in the finals and we'd be seeing Uraraka vs Smuglord instead.

Battle of Gods was surprising good. Quite amazed by how much it subverted the typical DBZ movie structure. The comedy reminded me of the original Dragon Ball series. Goku losing the fight against Beerus was definitely reminiscent of the message behind the first Budokai arc in DB. Really enjoyed how the film acknowledged that Goku isn't perfect, with his pride being a significant flaw. Along with everyone taking him down a notch when appropriate. Vegeta came out the best in the film; stealing almost every scene.

Definitely looking forward to the new movie now.

Basically, it's part of the whole tongue in cheek nature of the entire movie.
That's why most of the fight is Goku complaining about it until it eventually wears off in the middle.

And yet the next movie is going to play Goku and Vegeta being the strongest and their confrontation with the movie villain completely straight from all accounts, the other heroes will keep on being fodder versus the stupid revived SSJ freiza's fodder.

Its pretty damn lame how the new movie is going even further out of its way to shit on Gohan.
Its even making him rely on super saiyan again for no reason despite now crapping on the concept of the different super saiyan forms from the original series. It's kinda like GT all over again.

If you'll recall, Super Saiyan Gohan was featured heavily in promotional material for Battle of Gods, but only because it looked more iconic; in the actual movie he only uses Super Saiyan during the godhood ritual.

Vegeta/Bulma was the first (at least because I can't think of any other) great big "It came out of nowhere" pairing in a shounen anime. It sparked the creation of fandoms for every single crazy coupling combination in every shounen afterwards. Thus in turn it is at least partially responsible for every shipping war that has ever been fought since then.

Even if it was the most lovable pairing in the world, that is a sin that can never be forgiven.

That and the biobroly clone being a freakish muck monster instead of just that shitty character played straight easily elevates it above the second broly movie.

Dressarosa is indeed gonna be one of the worst arcs and nobody is gonna argue otherwise, I have zero connection to it and it's characters, that said I'm more interested in this than I am anything else because since it's a Luffy power up it will be somewhat interesting.

Gears aren't Super Sayian which are boring color changes and just strength ups, they are generally creative variations on his central rubber abilities. I dunno, it's been a 6 months to a year since I cared about one piece so I at least hope this is interesting.

I like it more than Skypeia at least. Now those where characters I didn't care about.
The only thing I don't particularly like about Dressrosa is the amount of characters he shoved into it. There's just too many to give anything more than a slight gag for character. Which Oda has loved to do for ages, but there becomes a point where there's just too many at once, and all the charm of the character gimmicks get lost amongst themselves. Particularly for the Strawhat crew themselves, who seem to have been just going with the flow sense the time skip. In a lot of ways, this arc is like a condensed Baroque Works arc, but lacking in the interesting character developments.

I think what we need is some strong disclosure as to what happened with the main crew in those two years. Because as it is, they kind of feel distant.

TOKYO (April 28, 2015) – Toei Animation has announced production on Dragon Ball Super (Japanese title; tentative
for English release), the first all-new Dragon Ball television series to be released in 18 years. Following the recent events of the hit feature film, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, Dragon Ball Super will debut in Japan in July 2015.

Reuniting the franchise’s iconic characters, Dragon Ball Super will follow the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain earth’s fragile peace. Overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator, Akira Toriyama and produced with Fuji Television, Dragon Ball Super will draw on its historic past to create a bold, new universe welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers.

Toei would have the most say in this, though. I could see Viacom biding and airing Dragon Ball Super on Spike or MTV. The CW is another possibility. Even Fox/FX is a possibility.

Regarding Funimation, I could see them doing their Dub Broadcast for the streaming site. Or, work out a Space Dandy deal with a TV Network.

Kai was done so cheaply that its only saving grace was that Funimation actually tried with their English dub and made it good.

Nah, I just can't see that. It wouldn't fit in with any of their programming. It'd come down to Nick or CN/AS/Toonami, and I'd consider the latter as the frontrunner.

I more or less agree, but here's the thing:

I SERIOUSLY doubt this is the end for Doflamingo. Dressrosa, yes, but with Kaido around the corner, Doflamingo never being seen without his glasses even once, CP0, and the whole "Tenryubito treasure" subplot being untouched, I wouldn't be surprised if Doflamingo up and leaves.

Having to explain his failure to an even bigger fish would be a good fate, methinks.

Having no connection (good or bad) to anyone with such a large and varied cast of characters introduced in Dressrossa is most likely a failing of your own. Dofa's family, Rosinante, Sr. Pink, Baby 5, Dellinger, new Bellamy, Cavendish, Bartolomeo, Kyros, Rebecca, Ideo, Sai, Chinjao, Hajrudin, Elizabello II, Leo and the other Tontatta,Fujitora. If you didn't grow to like or hate any of these heroes or villains, maybe it's just time to give up your dream of finding One Piece.

It's a fantastic "Angry but goofy" form. I adored it the instant it was leaked on /a/. I hope with all my salty heart that it comes complete with stupid sound effects. You expect it to be all bad ass right? But I want ridiculous "BOING!" and Rubber Band noises.

>91570
Nah. Awakened Zoans were prelude to this, as was Trebol now in hindsight. I would have preferred it stayed with Zoans, to keep them special, but they also got Mythical tier so it's probably better there's an Awakened state for all Types instead of Zoans getting two, and Chopper's advancements. Perhaps there's something unique to Paramecia and Logia a la Mythical Zoan?

>91574
>Arc Climax with long standing antagonist and objectively most powerful fought thus far

But I can't blame you too much. I've wanted Sanji to show up and Zoro on Hody Jones Doflamingo for a while now.

>91586
>No glasses Doffy
Will you fags cut this shit out? It means nothing to see Doflamingo's eyes. Look at Kakashi's face reveal above. Look at Sanji's hair flip swap post Time Skip. No one was like "We never saw Vergo without food on his face, he's far from done."

It'll probably be the end of Donflamingo for at least as long as Crocodile, Buggy, Enel, Rob Lucci were/will be gone.

"Zolo" was never a mistranslation, it was an intentional change to avoid getting sued by the people who own the trademark and copyright on Zorro in the West. Viz kept it because they also do not want to get sued.

I concur. I missed the ship to Doflamingo town when it left long ago, and nothing's ever brought me on board since. He's ridiculously powerful even before it was revealed he was Awakened Paramecia and his arc is too similar to Alabasta and Fishman Island in theme (Shichibukai usurps control of a nation, Luffy and friends confront him on the side of the true and benevolent king).

What it has done great though, is world build. Jesus Christ the world building has been spectacular since Punk Hazard and hasn't stopped yet.

I'm hardly trying to to DoFAGmingo (geddit? GEDDIT!?) things up here, just noting that it's odd that Oda would have a major arc villain never seen without sunglasses despite flashbacks across his life and not somehow turn it into at least a minor point. Think of it as figuring out what Jones's steroids actually were... it'd be odd if Oda never addressed it. But yeah, it's not like Crocodile's hook or Moria's neck wound were ever explained.

But forget that. Sure, it's irrelevant. What I'm really curious about is the "Tenryubito's greatest treasure", how Doflamingo blackmailed them with it, and what CP0 has to do with fucking anything.

You know what I really dig about Luffy?

He doesn't have some dark/evil side he has to grapple with like every other modern Shounen hero does.

Considering that that's when Luffy's from too, then the point still stands. He doesn't have a demon trapped inside (Devil Spirit doesn't count) or is half ghost or whatever.

Does anyone here even read Shounen that started post 2000?

>91650
He does however have a traumatic childhood, can't forget that. Otherwise Luffy is an incredibly admirable ShouHero. He's only on the wrong side of the law because the law is on the wrong side to begin with. Pirate, criminal, is a profession taken because it allows him freedom and that's what he values above all for himself and for others.

It's a low-budget Toei anime, directed by someone who doesn't know how to gracefully cover for a lack of budget. And for some reason they ordered fifty episodes of a series with less than eighty chapters at the time, so it's stretched out and padded even more than the budget would suggest.

It's straight up a downgrade from the manga in every way except for editing out Jin grabbing women's butts.

The OPs are decent though.

Some people are claiming it will be revealed that Sasuke had a genjutsu put on himself to make him forget about his family in order to "protect them". Which is also the reason he's not been in contact for 12 years despite having multiple methods of communication and super powers that would make it effortless.

Of course even if that was the case it will be complete bullshit, since Sakura and the people of Konoha made absolutely no effort to hide the child's identity. Sakura still goes about everywhere telling people she's married to Sasuke, their house and clothing are casually festooned with the Uchiha crest and to top it off her name is Sarada Uchiha.
