Re: The Problem with Gohan

I do when that's all he does for the entirety of the story. If all he does is react and do what he's told, you've picked the wrong protagonist. By the end of the Cell Games Gohan developed How do you know? We weren't shown that. We saw at the end of the arc that he had to be told what to do and whe...

Re: The Problem with Gohan

To truly atone, he would have to do more than just what he's told. He's little more than a blunt instrument in that arc. He has to be told what to do every step of the way. That's not a good trait in the central character. The only way he's more capable than Goku is that he wouldn't allow threats t...

Re: The Problem with Gohan

Except that Gohan isn't more reliable. Gohan giving up at that point in the fight for whatever reason isn't a great trait in a protagonist. If Toriyama is trying to make GOhan the hero or trying to give him an arc, he's failing because by the end, Gohan isn't self reliant. He's constantly having to...

Re: The Problem with Gohan

Ah, yes, we've debated about this a few times with neither of us coming to an agreement. I think Gohan was handled well in the arc, they build him up just enough that it wasn't obvious that he'd be the hero at the end (Goku claiming he wants Gohan to be stronger than him, Goku saying he can't beat C...

Re: Why Doesn't Anyone Notice Goku's Character Development in the Cell arc?

I will give you the stuff about helping Gohan control Super Saiyan 2. Goku didn't keep it from Gohan for good reasons. Toriyama did it because he wanted to keep it as a reveal for the audience. I can't think of any organic in-story reason why Goku would keep it from Gohan. I'm sure it's because he ...

Re: Why Doesn't Anyone Notice Goku's Character Development in the Cell arc?

He could have prevented people from dying if the group sought out Gero in the first place. His desire for a good fight is what put the world in danger. He’s a danger to Earth simply because he isn’t pragmatic. Him deciding to stay away isn’t exactly helping this problem, especially since he’s the o...

Re: Why Doesn't Anyone Notice Goku's Character Development in the Cell arc?

To me it kinda feels hollow. There's no real build up to it. Just seems like a way to make a reason for Goku to stay dead. He was so concerned about the safety of the planet that he risked everything in a gambit with Gohan including giving Cell a Senzu bean and not even trying to use the ROSAT to s...

Why Doesn't Anyone Notice Goku's Character Development in the Cell arc?

His decision to stay dead at the end clearly showed huge character growth/development. It showed he grew to believe he's a danger to earth especially because of the Androids. Him Saying Gohan is more reliable than him shows that he also believed his Saiyan nature was dangerous too which is significa...

Re: Why are people so excited for FighterZ?

It looks like another typical fighting game but with Dragon Ball skin to me. It is, and if you look back at the history of the DB games, there wasn't any properly made 2D fighter so far, many of us always wanted a game like this, and it just never happened. Never played Super Sonic Warriors, did yo...

Why are people so excited for FighterZ?

It looks like another typical fighting game but with Dragon Ball skin to me. Dragon Ball games have the potential to be amazing and unique like Tenkaichi 3 or even Raging Blast 2 by capturing the feel of the show but people want a typical fighting game instead? It doesn't make sense to me. What I fi...

Black was decent but he has a strange accent and a little too gruff
Trunks doesn't sound deep to me. It sounds very light actually.

Re: How Good are These Goku and Frieza voices?

Freeza sounds okay, but Goku sounds way too deep and the hic accent just sounds off to me. Kinda like some old cowboy. Try softening / raising the pitch for Goku and dial back the accent a bit and you should be good. Your Frieza is in the right direction but your Goku's voice is way too deep which ...

These are my take on the character. I'd like to have you honest thoughts:

Re: Who do people think that Goku is not a complex character?

To me, Goku in DB is very complex, Goku in DBZ is slightly less complex I think Goku in DBZ is more complex than the Goku of DB, mainly due to the Android arc. Goku is indeed a complex character if you ask me, I went in-depth on why in my character analysis on him: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/v...
