    Well, it has been ten years since anything's happened. I don't see why they haven't done some specials and some movies since the series ended. I'm excited.

    I'm guessing it has something to do with capitalizing on the live-action movie...

    I would love it if an AF were finally made. I'm dead serious.

    Still, just a single special isn't all that unusual. Now if it were an entire series, then it'd strike me as unusual.

    But the problem is whats the special going to be about? Everyone is dead and Goku is just a guardian now. I guess another Goku jr special could work..?

    That's not really a problem. It could be something taking place between Z and GT, remaking portions of DB or Z, disregard GT entirely and do something else, be like the movies, etc...

    I don't see why continuity would be an issue since all movies and specials in the past have essentially ignored it.

    Honestly, I'd love it to be like the 10 anniversary Dragon Ball movie (Path To Power), only have it remake one of the Z based sagas this time. Maybe a special remaking the Frieza saga?

    Great! Just what the world needs! Another cheapquel to the usual 200+ ep. Shonen Jump garbage anime that centers around a bunch of arrogant, whiny, hyperactive, uber-powerful, scatterbrained, spiky-haired punks and also lacks a real plot and character development:shrug: !

    Seriously, the world truly needs more animated shows that are artsy, family-oriented and doesn't exist just to push merchandise or sacrifice quality for ratings and target demographics!

    Watch History of Trunks. Come back and tell me the series lacks plot and character development. When I notice you cannot do this, continue to not talk. Stereotyping franchises makes you look stupid, and not everything has to be artsy to be good.

    Honestly. I want you to watch Shonen Jump series like Yu Yu Hakusho, Hikaru no Go, and Death Note and tell me every Shonen Jump series is cliche and plotless. You won't be able to, unless you stick by your prejudices and watch them with tinted glasses. You've just proved you don't know what you're talking about, and in cases like this, not knowing what you're talking about means you shouldn't talk at all.

    Anyway, I like the idea of a remade Freeza Saga special. The battle between Goku and Freeza was horrible, and I'd like it done on a proper timescale.

    Exactly, although I think the reason it was really stretched out as it was in the anime was because it was unclear whether the series would end or not.

    I wouldn't doubt it. If any piece of Dragonball should be remade, it has to be that fight.

    Given the choice, I'll take either a whole new story or a Freeza remake.
