  1. I’ve only seen one episode of Dragon Ball (the first episode to be more specific) so I don’t have much to say. However, I did seek out the first episode on YouTube so it wasn’t censored. I never saw it on Cartoon Network.

  2. people keep forgetting that Gohan never liked fighting, he only did it when he has to or because he was pissed at the villain.

    and for a fighting series, you needed a protagonist who likes fighting for it’s own sake, so, Goku comes back.

    • And also because Goku was popular with the fans.

      • I think the fan backlash being the main reason for Goku’s return is a myth.

        • You can believe whatever you want, but there’s a reason why Goku and Vegeta have been the focus of every Dragon Ball Z project thus far.

          • if Gohan didn’t like to fight, how else would they fix things besides bringing Goku back?

          • The Real Silverstar

            So are you ever *not* a smug jackass who thinks he’s always right about everything?

            I mean, geez, dude. I want to get along with you, but you make it sooooo difficult. This “You don’t think exactly like me, so you’re WRONG!!!!” attitude that you carry with you not only reeks of arrogance, but it’s just rude as hell.

            Your opinion =/= fact, and an opinion doesn’t magically become a fact just because you and your YouTube buddies all agree on it. You’d know this if you’d ever step outside of your echo chamber.

            And just so you know, no one’s gonna spend the next 8 months debating with you on this.

          • Gohan didn’t like to fight, yet he had no problem adopting the role of The Great Saiyaman and acting as a super hero. Fictional characters can do whatever their creators want them to do.

            Goku was supposed to die and stay dead at the end of the Cell Saga, but the character was brought back because the fans wanted him to return. That’s a fact, whether or not you choose to believe it.

            Earlier your exact words were ” I THINK the fan backlash being the main reason for Goku’s return is a myth.” You typed “think”, not “know”. Therefore, your theory isn’t something that you know for certain and are able to prove, but merely an assumption on your part, and we all know what happens when you ASSume.

            Either provide some proof to support your claim (and DON’T just offer your personal opinions because opinions aren’t facts) or just admit that you’re mistaken. By continuing to take an argumentative stance is only making you come off like an arrogant ass who willingly hides himself from the truth so that he can repeat his dogma unchallenged.

          • he became Saiyaman because he felt he had to without Goku around.

            and the “Fictional characters can do whatever the creators want” is a lazy argument, you still need characterization to be consistent.

            and I am never trying to push my opinion as fact and regret long drawn out arguments but somehow get carried away and get into them.

          • ‘the “Fictional characters can do whatever the creators want” is a lazy argument, you still need characterization to be consistent.’

            That would be fine, except you also gave an in-universe reason for Gohan to continue fighting when you said this:

            “he (Gohan) became Saiyaman because he felt he had to without Goku around.”

            Thus, you defeated your own argument. Thank you very much.

            And the FACT remains that Goku was brought back because the fans wanted him back. You still have yet to offer anything factual to disprove that. Don’t argue the point if you can’t offer a factual counterpoint.

          • okay, I did contradict myself but I could change it to say Gohan doesn’t like to fight when his dad is in the picture and even then, he does it despite hating it.

          • The Real Silverstar

            “I am never trying to push my opinion as fact and regret long drawn out arguments but somehow get carried away and get into them.”

            “Somehow”? ‘Cause of course its never YOUR fault. Someone or something else is always to blame.

            Here’s the “somehow”: your tiny brain combined with your massive ego can’t handle the thought of you being wrong about anything, as that would indicate that you’re not special or the Chosen One, so you keep “seeing” and “finding” arguments which prove you’re right. You’re also one of those people who always has to get the last word in.

            The best thing you can do is ACCEPT that you’re not always right, and others’ opinions can be just as valid as yours. You’re constantly trying to prove you’re right, and that’s very human, but wouldn’t you be happier if you accept that being wrong isn’t that bad? Isn’t it worse to keep lying to yourself? (Because ignoring counterarguments is indeed lying to yourself.) Facing these questions and opposing viewpoints is the only way to become more open-minded. You also need to learn how to let shit go. Earth isn’t going to spin off it’s axis if you choose to walk away from a debate once in a while.

            All too often, your comments are the epitome of a ridiculous sense of entitlement that sadly a lot of people have today. Other people aren’t here to be your ego-fluffers. You’re not the only person allowed to have an opinion.

            As someone old enough to be your older brother, uncle or parent, given the level of immaturity and childishness you typically display in your comments, I have this to say to you: the world in general doesn’t revolve around your ass, and it won’t accommodate your silly “Princess Special Snowflake” complex. You need to get your head out of said ass or you’re not going to be able to survive in the real world. The sooner you crash and burn in real life and get the harsh life lesson you so richly need and deserve, the better for everyone around.

          • this is the last thing I will say but I really don’t want to argue with anyone and I did not mean to imply these arguments are not my fault, I will take responsibility for it, I just wanted to point out a counter argument about Gohan’s treatment in the series.

  3. The Real Silverstar

    Eh, I’ve always liked the original Dragon Ball more than Z. DB was more fun and whimsical. Z was kind of cool at first, but the nonstop emphasis on fighting, training, screaming, flexing and beating up bigger and bigger baddies all the time got old for me real fast.

    Don’t get me started on how the writers keep inventing newer levels of Super Saiyan for Goku and Vegeta to ascend to.
