Yes, definitely not as bloody as one would expect from such a scene.
What's interesting about that though, is that in DBZ Kai, King Cold tries to dissuade Frieza from blowing up the planet. Another interesting thing about watching the old Funimation dubs is seeing how far the old voice actors have come in their craft since then. All of them sound more comfortable with their roles and the script then they did back then. I know Frieza has a different voice actor in Kai, but I was referring to Trunks here.
Hey guys, i have a question! No doubt it has been asked before ( maybe even here but i really don't want to search 245 pages and it might not even be there ) anyway!
You know the part where vegeta sacrifices himself in the fight against fat buu ? I think that was a mistake of the maker's part because fat buu survived by putting himself together from the bits and pieces that were left after the blast. BUT as you can see in that video ( if you have it or look for it ) the blast engulfs buu ( he is already inside it, notice the background) it doesn't blow him away so normaly there would be NO little parts of him laying around after the blast.
And he would of died just like he did with the spirit bomb from goku at the end, just be completely disintegrated. Sooo....since the day i saw those episodes untill now i think vegeta should of won that fight and killed buu for good but it was a writer's mistake. Unless someone can clear that up for me now?

I think that the reason vegeta didnt kill him but goku did was because of the nergy difference in their attacks. Vegeta's was powered just by him, Goku's had a lot behind it.
vegetas explosion was not strong enough
plus buu had more "padding"
the spirit bomb was much stronger and buu had less padding
I think this is a pretty good representation of the evolution in quality of acting evolution for Funimation's DBZ, especially since the Original Funi clips are (if memory serves) from Funimation's very first episode of DBZ:
I still can't believe Goku gave Cell a Senzu bean when he wanted Gohan to fight Cell.
It's a threat to Earth, not a fucking game.
Yea thats probably a big difference between DB/early DBZ and the end of DBZ. When fighting against the Saiyans the Z-Fighters did everything they could just to kill them, nobody was playing around. The same goes for King Piccolo and Frieza.
Moreover you shouldnt even start to think about logic in DBZ... of course Goku could have Instant-teleported away from King Kais planet after bringing Cell there, of course Kid Buu could have simply dodged Gokus Genkidama, of course Goku and Vegeta could have picked up Gohan and co. (who were laying just a few meters away from them) when they were leaving earth before it exploded and let Mystic Gohan kill Kid Buu without much effort. In the end it didn't happen and its just a anime
I know buu is squishy and the bullets didn't hurt him, but it seems like they wouldn't have even made marks. Otherwise it seems like every punch that he received would have blown him into pieces.
