Since the databook's and dvd's have started naming arcs, I was thinking it would be nice to move those arcs to one of those two titles. Since this change would require mass editing on all character pages involved... I thought I'd bring it up on the forum first. - SimAnt 00:22, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

It'd be simpler with a bot. ~SnapperTo 04:01, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
Wait... The databooks started naming arcs? --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 12:59, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
Well if you look at the articles, like Sasuke and Sai arc, it says in the first paragraph that the databook called this the "Heaven and Earth Reconnaissance Mission". Anyway, I'm more partial to the arc names we have (I don't care for the DVD titles, and the databook titles have "Mission" in it, which I just feel is kinda bleh.) but I'm sure my opinion doesn't matter.
I will say though, that the databook titles should be used over the DVD titles.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 14:36, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


The Databooks shouldn't differ too much from what Kishi originally decided to call story arcs. Example: Zombie Twins has always been referred to as that or something similar sounding. If the anime differs (more specifically dvd titles) it's usually because the filler is taken into account. I personally have only purchased the single dvd volumes but only 2 major story arcs have passed in terms of what the US has released on dvd boxes.

Sub arcs are based off canon or non canon events. It's all about how people choose to break down a series. According to the old Funimation dvd singles of Dragon Ball Z there are about 15 or so story arcs instead of the 4 MAJOR arcs/sagas.
