Re: The differences between Toei Goku and Manga Goku

In the manga Goku killed himself with Cell on purpose, it's a gag, he turned around and removed his hand from his forehead after teleporting to Kaio's planet, something that anime didn't do as he appeared in that pose instantly, his apology to ChiChi was presumably because he promised her that he wo...

Re: Interesting or funny pictures thread

I see it as manipulative, Goku constantly works Vegeta, he stole his kill on Freeza just to annoy him, or said this because he knew that he would be butthurt and try to surpass him. I'm not sure how any of those prove Goku's a manipulative character. Goku not knowing about kissing is just a dumb ga...

Re: Interesting or funny pictures thread

Goku's manipulative attitude, it is interesting considering he's a guy who doesn't comprehend things like love and family. I guess that's one way to interpret it. I don't think that's what Toriyama was going for though. There's no personal gain for Goku and it's for the greater good to get Vegeta t...

What's interesting and/or funny about these panels? Sorry I don't follow. Is Vegeta's development here interesting?

Is Korin giving Goku the magic water a gag?

The first time around Goku gets on Korin's tower, Korin sells him a lesson that there isn't any holy water and strength comes from training, but the second time he's like "heh, jk, here's the water that will make you powerful". Do you think the subversion is deliberate?

Is Goku and ChiChi's marriage turning out terrible a gag?

Same style as Yamcha turning out to be a cheater when he gets a chance to fulfill his marriage dream, normally you would expect characters fullfilling childhood romantic promises to have a happy ending so it would be a subversion of that.

Re: Why Doesn't Anyone Notice Goku's guilt in the Cell Arc?

It doesn't make sense considering how he returned in Boo arc being as much of an asshole as always.
Also this, Vegeta's comment at the end is very clear.

Re: Is Dragon Ball cynical at its core?

No, when Piccolo's words about Gohan's outlook on his plan with Cell finally starts to hit home and he turns around to look at the battle horrified. I don't remember him ever having a moment of self-reflection or realization like that before or ever again. You would think it would make him more sel...

How do you rate Dragon Ball's creativity in fighting department?

I give it good/average from the beginning up to the saiyan arc, and mostly terrible afterwards with some shining moments here and there. Earlier on there was more of a sense of uniqueness, characters actually pulled out things, the gags didn't feel out of place before the stakes rose, there was some...

What was the point of the large guard that Daimao kills inside King's castle?

Neither a gag, neither a worf effect, doesn't give any informations, seems weird to give him so much exposition.

Re: Is Dragon Ball cynical at its core?

Besides Toriyama's comments about poison, he also made other interesting ones, that when he was drawing DB, he was making things not touching on purpose, that there is no such thing as a theme in his work, that DB is pure entertainment and doesn't have any messages. He admits to more or less fucking...

Re: Is Dragon Ball cynical at its core?

Gohan might be the only exception since he seems to be genuinely decent, probably to show just how awful the rest are. Gohan entirely ignored Android 16's last words about protecting nature for him, never thought of him again, and became a permanently arrogant fighter. The moment where Goku asks hi...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

After reading this I'm starting to speculate if Goku is a troll character based on the troll author himself. There is definitely a similarity, Toriyama treats raping Lady Red as an author in innocent manner, just like Goku does about everything, as much as everyone likes to argue that Goku is an in...

I don't remember the thread, but it was something along the lines that BoG was a return of group of friends that you enjoyed while everything else was terrible and you're hoping for the zombie franchise to die with a mention of Goku and direction, though I might misremember something. I haven't seen...

Gaffer Tape I have a read a thread where you said that you were displeased with Goku's characterization starting from RoF. did you miss Goku's asshole move in BoG?
