What was happening in Dragon Ball on your birth week?

Postby KBABZ » Tue Sep 12, 2017 7:49 pm

This is a fun one: what was happening in the Dragon Ball franchise the week you were born?

On my birth week, the manga was up to the issue where Ginyu learns the hard way that he can't master the Ki in Goku's body and gets pummeled by Krillin and Gohan. On the anime side, my birthday happens to be the exact date the most infamous filler episode originally aired in Japan. Yep, I am as old as the Bulma and the Crabs episode! :P

Manga: Freeza transforms for the first time and impales Kuririn
Anime: Recoome breaks Gohan's neck and Goku lands on Namek. This one happened on the same day I was born, so both Goku and I arrived on the same day :P .
Both of those moments are cool, I'm ok with this :lol:

It looks like I was born like a month after you or so

I s*** you not, the Goku Jr. special first aired...on the VERY DAY I was born into this world. Again, I S*** YOU NOT. When I first found out that one of the very few things I TRULY enjoyed about GT happened on the day of my birth, it blew my mind like you wouldn't believe.

In the manga, Vegeta had just made his entrance in the android saga and transformed into a Super Saiyan for the first time.

In the anime, they were in the Garlic Jr saga and Piccolo just got macked on and turned into a vampire or whatever the hell they turn into.

Good to know that in the week Vegeta makes an epic entrance, that I make mine. Pissed off and ready to go.

Unfortunately, Dragon Ball Z skipped my birth week (maybe for Golden Week?), otherwise episode 264 would have aired right on my birthday in Japan...
However, Chapter 517 (the antepenultimate chapter in the entire run) debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump #23 on May 9, one day before my birthday so I'll take that as a win.

No, why would it? It's fiction. The strength of the characters is not possible to reach in reality.

I mean, you're pretty open about looking at cartoon porn. Why would you do that? It's fiction. The proportions of these women are not possible to reach in reality.

I can relate! ...sort of. I find it very amusing that the entirety of of Kid Goku portion of Dragon Ball, by far my favourite portion of the series, had fully wrapped up over a year before I was born!

Manga: It had already finished in May. :cry:

In the manga Vegeta told Goku how to defeat Kid Buu by using the genki dama in chapter 513.

Nothing in the anime cause there was a major gap between March 22nd's episode and April 26th's.

Uh, that's a pretty good question. I was born on the 24th of October 1982. Was DB out at that point? Sorry, I'm on mobile data here so can't look around too much right now.

Hmm, well if we re-jigger the question a little bit...

Okay, so the closest I can get is the content of Dr. Slump that was covered in its 9th Tankobon release in December of 1982.

Goku met Bulma on my birthday...but in Dragon Ball time.

Was born on Sunday October 9th, 1988. Here's what happened within this week:

No chapter was released within the same week, but Chapter 196 (Kakarrot) was released a day earlier on October 8th, 1988. Anime-wise, Dragon Ball episode 129 (Time Traveling Goku) was aired on Wednesday, October 12th, 1988.

So, manga-wise, the last chapter before I was born was number 167, just one day before I was born. It's the one detailing the preliminaries at the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai.

Anime-wise, episode 105 was the last one before I was born, where they first introduced Yajirobe.

Meaning, I was born before even the manga reached the "Z" portion!

Manga: SSJ3 Gotenks vs Super Buu

Anime: Trunks flying to Capsule Corp to get the radar / Goku unveils SSJ3

No wonder I love SSJ3 so much

And if the official month/day dates for the events are correct, my birthday falls exactly on the day of Vegeta/Nappa's arrival in universe.

Also not really in my week, but this game came out 8 days after I was born

Supreme Kai: Who are you people?! Don't you know the universe matters more than your meaningless squabble?!

Majin Vegeta: MEANINGLESS, HUH?! WHAT DO YOU KNOW OF MEANINGLESS!? Spend most of your life ruled by another! Watch your race dwindle to a handful! AND THEN, tell me what has more meaning then your own strength! I have in me the blood of a Saiyan prince. He is nothing but a joke! Yet I've had to watch him surpass me in strength, my destiny thrown to the wayside! He's...He's even saved my life like I were a helpless child...He has stolen my honor, and his debts...must be paid!
