he wrote this stuff in the 80s soooooo yeah i can forgive him
also a lot of us are americans he wrote plenty of other stuff thats not as big here in the U.S.
I know I said earlier in the thread: The DB manga finished in Japan in 1995. Well before we even got it. He explicitly said he wanted to move on from DB.
Also, most of these authors have their stories planned pretty far in advance. So details probably slip to the back of their minds in the grand scheme of things.
he is also a good writer. the story is soooo simple yet pretty good.
unlike bleach...... oh this characters popular i cant do anything with them! LET THEM LIVE AFTER BEING CUT IN HALF!
or naruto where they must do a detailed filler arch for every guys past and put a bad love story into it and so many twists that make no sense. itachi was so popular they made him a good guy instead.
as for lets saaaayyy any character who dies in bleach..... they are not really the main characters. the white haired captain.... gets a freakin hole in the chest by a brain damaged wonderwiess and gets to live.

Of course, if it wasn't for the Dragon Balls being able to bring back pretty much anyone, there would likely have been a lot fewer main character deaths in DB.
but they build it into the story as to how they dont stay dead. its a fundamental part of the story. it does get abused. but it is a focal of the story
in bleaches case. its just to please fans.

bleach is just going what the hell mode.... hes this and that and this he is MED'AN Itchigo is def medan
its like with sasuke and itachi.... sasuke now has no actual reason to be a character other than to... continue for the sake of nothing

Can we stop talking about other manga/anime now? It was one thing when we were comparing them to DBZ, but now we're comparing them to each other and criticizing. Seems like a different thread topic to bring it up in.
tori did not like vegeta. but instead of giving him plot armor to please the fans. he wrote him into the main story, made him a main character etc. unlike grimmjow who is still alive it seems and will more then likly have plot armor as to how he is alive and make a brief apperance and not a main character. same for how halibel is still alive or why they had histugiya beat her.
Future Trunks never exists, same with present Trunks. Instead of killing off Future Gohan in F. Trunks backstory, F. Gohan survives and he's the one who comes back in time. Most of the Android/Cell Saga precedes as usual. Although, it might make it a bit strange for F. Gohan to see present Gohan reach SS2.
Buu Saga is where it gets complicated. Imagine all the parts up to Vegeta's death. Now remove all scenes with Majin Vegeta and try to think of a character that could fill in. Probably the closest person they have is Piccolo, but this is after he re-fused with Kami, so any evil in his heart is at the bare minimum, and he seemed to accept that Goku was better than him back in the Saiyan Saga.
tori's favorite is piccolo i could see him making him the majin though
Piccolo, on the other hand, has not only been on the good side for nearly all of DBZ, he also lost most of his bad side during Gohan's training. He showed several moments of self-sacrifice, saving Gohan from Nappa and Goku from Frieza. By the time that he had fused with Nail, his only bad quality left was a short temper. Before Kami fused with him, Kami said that the evil in his heart had pretty much disappeared, and it would be even less after fusing with a pure good being like Kami.
For Piccolo to suddenly say "Screw this, I'm better than Goku" wouldn't make much sense to me. I only mentioned him because the other characters are even less likely. If it was more comedic, maybe for Krillin or Yamcha have finally taken too much of being the butt monkeys, but that would make it hard to take the Majin speeches serious, and Majin Vegeta's were some of the best in the series.
It was a basic concept of DB/early DBZ that enemys become allies... Goku had to beat Yamcha before they became friends, Tien was a badass before he fought Goku and later allied with him against Piccolo. Then Piccolo was really really evil wanting to conquer the world until he allied with Goku to beat the Saiyans. Vegeta is the last one in this row getting beat by Goku & co and then joining them against Frieza.
18 and Fat Buu also were villians but then became friends of the Z Fighter but they never played big parts in the story anymore.
I had sex with vegito.. I am writing this from the afterlife
idk I watched dbz over 10 years ago, and still remembered there was 3 forms of super saiyan.
you think creating it, you'd have a more vivid memory than someone who only watched it as a child.
