    And even then it was still "forced" wasn't it?

    Also, yay for TFS updating.

    Back to the thread. Man even the training in GT is absurd. They pull out his tail with giant tongs and he gets stronger? I have all these taped episodes of GT but I can't force myself to sit down and watch them because the show is just so boring : /

    @the0o? Really? When was that mentioned :O

    Whatever. Backwards and unjust moderating to chat thread's rescue.

    Dragon Ball Z 2013 Movie Update" Bils knew about Goku 39 years before the events in the movie.

    Also North American gets DBZ coloured manga. (digital versions) off the english shonen jump website. its like 25$ for all the issues with a year subscription or something. idk, I'm thinking about getting it if someone can grasp an understanding of how it works to me.

    According to the dragon ball wikia timeline, Goku was born in the Age 737 and defeated Frieza in the Age 762, when he was 25. Buu was destroyed in the Age 774, when Goku was 37 (plus a year for Hyperbolic Time Chamber, so 38). Apparently Bils faces them sometime between Ages 776 and 779, so Goku is about 40, and beat Frieza roughly 15 years ago.

    If Bils knew about him 39 years ago, then assuming the movie takes place in Age 776, he knew when Goku was born. Maybe Broly wasn't the only person who listen to him cry as a child.

    So we could infer that he either saw goku as a child or his birth... imagine goku's mom was in the movie, ermergerd.

    Or he saw goku escape vegeta to earth.

    In the video games, Bils always comes in after frieza uses the finisher he used to destroy planet vegeta. I think we're gonna see Bils appear right after the destruction of planet vegeta in a flash back or something

    I've heard that the explanation (I can't remember if it was Toriyama that gave the explanation) is that Saiyan tails are a recessive trait, so few hybrid-Saiyans are born with them.

    Hmm, wonder what would happen if a Saiyan bred with another tailed creature.

    Bils looks like a dog owner



    "Awww, you transformed. Who's a good Saiyan?"

    Anyways, apparently Akira Toriyama wrote a letter saying that the new movie is revenge for the live-action movie (Dragon Ball Evolution).

    Revenge against who? And do you have a source for that? I'd be very interested in reading anything written by Toriyama about the new movie.
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    On the wikia, from the movie's page

    http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Dra...82013_movie%29

    A 30 minute Battle of Gods discussion panel was held at Jump Festa 2013; on the Jump Super Stage, on December 22, 2012. Along with the voice actors Masako Nozawa, Mayumi Tanaka, Toshio Furukawa, the film director Masahiro Hosoda, editor-in-chief Akio Iyoku, and Toei Animation producer Gyarmath Bogdan took part at the discussion which was overseen by former YBS TV announcer Mariko Nakagomi. Masako Nozawa read out a letter from Akira Toriyama saying he tried hard as personal revenge for the live-action film which was bad, and that he and the scriptwriters reworked the story a bunch of times. The character images Toriyama drew for the movie were displayed; he drew Android 18 with purple hair instead of blonde and he had to have this pointed out to him.

    Interesting because in some of the images I seen drawn, (for the movie) Trunks had blue hair instead of purple.

    Toriyama doesn't know his material as well as the fans do. dat feel when no ultimate Gohan.
