Perfect chance to make up for completely ignoring Lunch exists at all. I would explode if they literally just started the first episode with lunch being up to her old ways.
I'm not too worried about the main cast, just let them be actual characters and be relevant.

I really want to see Mirai Trunks and 17's family. It would be interesting if Mirai Trunks came back due to another conflict or even just to visit everyone and stuck around for an arc or so.

I'd like to see Tao and Android 17 make a comeback.

It's refreshing seeing a lot of people welcoming 17 to return, he isn't as popular among the Youtube community sadly. Recently I have been thinking, what if Launch was in fact 17's wife, wouldn't that be interesting... :think:

The question is, why do we need those characters? I mean, Gine? Come on! Just to see her on the screen?

We have so many uninteresting characters: Chi chi, Puar, Yajirobe to name a few, why do we need to add more? I don't get it. Serious question.

Why do people want more of Son Gohan if he is already "gone"? Why does the author keep him around when he doesn't do anything to him other than having his ass kicked?

It's worth keeping in mind that characters you find uninteresting might actually be interesting to others. I'm not fond of Chi Chi or Puar, but Yajirobe amuses me and I'd certainly like to see more done with him, even if it's just humorous antics. Same goes for Oolong, and Chaozu definitely deserves to finally do something, anything.

@Gyt Kaliba I fail too see how this help plot wise. Take for example BoG movie, if Pilaf gang was missing would it change anything? No, it was used as filler. And I ask, you want them to be used like this? Since in fights don't have any chance.

That didn't answer my question. :3

And yeah, we don't need Gohan anymore cause the way they use him is bad. It's better to leave him out.

I'd like to see 17 again; he was amusing to me and frankly, I'd like to see him and 18 interact now that she's had a child and gotten married. I was also a fan of Launch and Tenshinhan. I'd like to see what they're up to; seeing Tenshinhan briefly during Gohan's fight with Buu was nice. I truthfully wouldn't mind seeing Gine animated but only if it made sense. I don't see her even being s supporting character but I'd like to see her maybe in flashbacks or something similar.

Ultimately though, I really just want to see the current characters we have get some time in the spotlight. I want to have Goten, Trunks and Gohan be relevant again. I want to see if they give Bra some personality, same with Marron. I wouldn't mind seeing the next generation take over if they made the next generation interesting. I want to see Goten and Trunks have individual personalities, not just always together. Pan is intriguing if they give her a good foil to work off of.

Sorry, but if this happens, then there will be no series at all. Akkuman can crush every heart which is not pure (And I am pretty sure that anyone besides Goku (and even that is arguable post Buu), Gohan, Pan (maybe) and Goten aren't pure enough, this of course goes for both Beerus and Whis, and most likely all Gods of Destruction) and Monster Carrot can turn anyone into a carrot with a single touch... No thrill at all.

You missed my point entirely I think. I don't have to see a character fight to enjoy them. There are other things they can do to advance the plot, just like always. Like Kuririn getting 18's remote. Or Goku himself going to get senzu beans for Videl. And I don't have to have everything advance the story either, because I enjoy things like Roshi's perverted antics, or Yajirobe asking if he can hit Chi Chi.

Seriously, why is everyone so focused on JUST the fighting aspects of Dragon Ball? I get it, it's a major part. It's arguably the MAIN part. But it's not the ONLY part. I come to Dragon Ball for the comedy, the characters, the stories, the action, the whole enchilada. But the way some of you talk, you'd be happy with a clip show that was just the characters punching each other for an hour - oh, but only if it totally fits into your power charts you've been making for years.

That actually answers. When we ask for someone like Gine, we don't necessarily want her to appear in this point of story. A flashback, a story of the past are what they mean, not only for character development but maybe to estabilish something. "Appear just for the sake of screentime" is what happened in Dragon Ball Minus, that is not what we want. You should know this.

Now that you reminded me... Why the heck this Nock guy looks just like Pan? :(

I mean, seriously,


He has a bit similar hairstyle, the same bandana and very similar jeans with even belts resembling each other. Did Toriyama just took her character design from him for some reason?

Actually going off an idea I've seen another user post, it'd be really cool to see some of the old characters from Dragonball. What if grandpa gohan was back on the scene, give Goku the feelz.

That already happened a long time back, I don't want them to shoehorn back in things that have already happened I would rather get development for any new characters and for ones that didn't get enough development in the old series (like Oob or Pan or Bra or even teenage Gotan & Trunks)

I love Lunch but she really wasn't ever important to the story even back when she was "relevant" truth is she was never relevant to begin with and the series already has enough comic relief characters so why doesn't she just hang with them instead (just like she used to do in the Tenkaichi Budokai audience) there shouldn't be a big thing made about her return other than a "where have you even been??" moment in which she gives a crazy story about what she did during Z (I would actually love for that to happen)

I wonder if Toriyama could write Towa and Mira into Super?

Surely he can, the real question is: Will he write them into Super?
