The recent Black Panther trailer / vignettes puts more emphasize on the few girls around T'challa, and it makes it feel a bit more like an ensemble movie, like a heist/spy team or something, now. Weird and interesting.

Well that was a pretty shitty final episode. It's good that someone's making a series like that, but it'll never had much of an audience.

weren't the names Lapi and Lazuli invented much more recently, way after the manga ended ? I think I heard about it around the BoG movie, is that right ? And by that time everyone (in the English speaking community) was long used to calling them Android 18 etc. In French they're called C18/C17 for cyborg. Then again C16 isn't a cyborg either (and neither was C8 all the way back in Dragon Ball, I'm not sure what they did at the time) but at least that's less noticeable. Either way it's the translation's fault. In Japan they're "artificial humans" and people just call them "number 18/17" (juu hachi gou, juu nana gou).
That would be the most logical, but calling someone "number something" would probably be weird in English. I think they did try that a few times in the French dub but that shit never really had any guideline.

Considering we're not exactly supposed to know what's planned, what's half done and what's dropped, I don't even see where there would be any reason to "make good" about anything. It's not like we're owed a Blue Mary if they make a model for kof14 but drop her in the end. That's a dumb question.

It's realy confusing how Dragon Ball Z used the term Android
Dragon Ball Z didn't use the term Android. Not in Japanese. It's just the translation because it couldn't be bothered to think through the complexity.

The scan does heavily point out "she looks like a Majin" and maybe that's why she's getting chubby with Buu, she likes sweets just like Buu, she turns people into sweets just like Buu, see how much she really really really is just like Buu... And yeah, Super Buu assimilating techniques from people he absorbed was a good point he had. It's like she figured out what Buu could do and decided to upgrade the concept of Cell using him.
(I'm pretty sure she's an Android that obtained the power of a Majin and not the other way around, she has all the Red Ribbon backstory with a connection to #16 and this form is still "#21 assuming her battle form")

Ex: absorb krillin, you get his kienzan. Taiyouken
Fixed, it's the actual example seen in the screenshots (together with the red Kamehameha).

For a site that's not currently offline :
http://www.allgamesdelta.net/2018/01/majin-android-21-is-final-character-in.html
So, a Majinified #21, really ?? Oooookay... She turns her opponent into sweets in her meteor, and she can steal a technique too. Like Krillin's Taiyouken. (also that thirsty AF look, Internet is gonna go nuts all over her)
there's a bit with a picture where she looks super angry and the text is all "so is she an ally or an enemy, who is it that she's angry at ? Play the story !" but I don't think anyone's gonna fall for that ? She's definitely the big bad. But it does say she's getting friendly with Buu (good) though, at least in her Majin form.

Some images of the next manga chapter have leaked. Caulifla, Freeza (looking all beat up and dejected with a beat up but happy Goku, looks like it's just skipping their fight because who cares), SSJ Cabba, but more notably, Gohan is going in his Namekian gear and not his Turtle gear. Will it go with a Namekian Ultimate Gohan ? Or just ditch the whole Ultimate thing that is still not going anywhere anyway, it's just "oh it's okay he's strong again".

WTF Cody stole Haggar's oversized pants. Is that the first time we see some sexy male underwear after seeing the panties of most of the female cast ?
Who the hell is the plushy monst- is that costume for Blanka ??
Sagat looks great.
(there have been a few theories on G's identity, including Greg, Q, and Gill)

Well damn, that Sagat is just amazing.

So, basically Capcom is tailor-making a game without a clear vision, but only to cater to popularity polls?
This particular poll is new and the game is not. Was Blanka always that high on the list in previous polls ? and I think Q has always been around yet there's no sign that Capcom cares about him. And then there's the part where, yes, people actually care to see a grown-up Sakura or a Cody that's actually out of jail because it's been a running meme that none of those fighting game characters ever change, and we're finally seeing some long needed evolution. This is a good thing. It's so dumb to make this out as catering.
As for saying that the game has no clear vision - that's a very unfair thing to say considering all the efforts they're making pushing for a story mode, to fill in a major gap that's been on all players' minds since SF3. They're not doing all that great on that front but it's far better than anything they've done until then since SFA3 (SF3 was bland), it's nice to have an actual story.

I can't believe they found a way to make the Tempest even worse, the final map has zero wiggle room for any reposition or other movement that would prevent your first unit from getting killed after killing the one on the top left.
Def ploy and quick riposte, nice.

People have already written it off. Some people think the trailers are different because of censorship and that is enough for them to not be interested. Obviously they are different due to marketing, something snk are notoriously terrible at.
You say that like the Western audience matters that much. remember this is a game for dressing up waifus in lewd animal costumes for a franchise that is mostly popular in Japan (and just sporadically in Central/South America). The important one was the Japanese trailer, not the US trailer, and they probably did okay for their target.

They should have used the Western trailer for all regions.
But that's pointless. There's a reason people make a trailer for the Western market and another trailer for the Japanese market. You think the West is going to write it off as sleazy because they saw the Japanese trailer, but if Japan had only seen the Western trailer, they'd have written it off for being boring because you can't bully or dress up your waifu in sleazy outfits or something.
Psst, Japan is full of pervs.

Canon is what the author wrote. Toei has always been the one making fillers.
The manga doesn't exactly "follow it to a T" either. For starters, the script they get is apparently not necessarily always detailed (read "the script just says they fight and Goku wins") so at times, both the manga and the anime have to fill in the blanks. And Toyotaro has straight up said that sometimes he takes a bit of inspiration from what the anime did for specific added details (but he doesn't follow that to a T either, most of the time he makes it better), and sometimes he himself also takes some liberty if he thinks he can elaborate on something Toriyama didn't bother talking about - for one, I'm sure Goku trying to learn "Hakai" in the manga is Toyo trying to build up on something that'll come later, but wasn't actually said in the script since Toei completely flew past it. And he's probably free to make his own filler, but given the gap with the anime, he probably shouldn't waste time on that. The only time I remember him doing it is the extra Trunks chapter just before Trunks left, the one where they played video games, and it was for some special festival or whatever that was.
And then of course we don't know to what extent Toyo follows something the anime did that wasn't in the script. For example, the way Zamasu tore up space with a scythe was too weird and random to be straight from Toriyama since that went nowhere, and Toyotaro still used a form of that but a bit less weird (IIRC), but the way Zamasu took over the fabric of the universe led to the decision that this universe was doomed, so it's probably what the script said.

edit - yeah, it's from the Toriyama/Toyotaro interview in volume 4.
Toyotaro explains how sometimes he just has to make the story go from point A to point B, like he just had to get to a point where Goku and Zamasu fight, and he got to make each character relevant (even Gowasu) in the middle to get there however he wanted, he says he goes off script a bit when he does that, he adds extra problems so that Goku doesn't get there in perfect conditions. He gives specific examples of things that were all him, like Trunks having trained under Shin (the healing power), and actually showing red Vegeta. He says the Mafuba part was in the script, but Vegeto wasn't - and also, he had to wait to be told it was OK to do it... Which is weird, it's unclear if he did that before or after the anime did it. Maybe they both take from each other in a writer's chat, if Toei even cares for that ?
Anyway he also says that Toriyama reads Toyotaro's suggestions and makes other changes on top of that, so at this point, if you want a canon, it's definitely not the anime.

canonically still unstoppable until this episode
They still aren't. Remember this is still the anime.
Also technically he only grabbed one, he didn't tank it, there's a difference because grabbing a blade with your bare hand without getting cut is indeed a real thing. Not like that, of course, but it's an anime.
About the arena itself, when it's apparently so easy to destroy, I don't know why no one has dug a hole to pull an enemy through the arena to the bottom and out. I'm pretty sure they already forgot what it was made of anyway.
