One of the great advantages of Dragon Ball Super for it to become a series that reaches many readers since its inception is based on the popularity of the Dragon Ball franchise. It is not an exaggeration to say that Dragon Ball is one of the most popular and successful manga series in the history of Japanese comics. Therefore, Dragon Ball Super has too many advantages to attract readers when the story of Goku and his teammates is inherently difficult to replace in the hearts of fans.
Dragon Ball Super is a Japanese manga and television anime series. It is the sequel to the original Dragon Ball manga and Dragon Ball Z animated series. The overall plot outline was penned by Dragon Ball franchise founder Toriyama Akira. The manga version is illustrated by Toyotarou, and the plot and editing are done by Toriyama. It has been serialized and serialized in V Jump, Shueisha’s shonen manga magazine, since June 2015. A television anime version of the same name produced by Toei Animation began airing on July 5. 2015.
However, after 6 years since its release, 2021 will see Dragon Ball Super have a pretty serious drop in sales and popularity. This comes from the somewhat boring, predictable plot and repetitive motifs. The characters of Dragon Ball Super have not been exploited from too many angles, the main character Goku is still the only fulcrum for the author to exploit. This creates negative signals from readers.
So in 2022, what does the Dragon Ball Super manga need to do to prove its appeal and deserve to be the sequel to the legendary Dragon Ball manga. What readers are most interested in is the plot and exploiting characters other than Goku. The fact that “baby monkey” shines too much, always being the one to solve all enemies no matter who his opponent is will create a sense of predictability and boredom for readers. Dragon Ball Super creates a multiverse system where God of Destruction, Angel, Zeno, villains are created, have great power but are not exploited. Other characters like Vegeta still only act as a background for Goku to shine. Need to change to make Dragon Ball Super attractive, with depth, clear character personality and more closely linked plot, not in favor of strength, the screen transformations are too boring in Dragon Ball. Super.
In fact, in the last chapters of Dragon Ball Super, the “Granola Survivor” section has shown us the author’s effort in refreshing the series. Goku or even Vegeta does not have much to play anymore, but instead is Granola, who will most likely solve it all and is also the main character of this story.
