Re: How rich was Goku over the series or does he just do things for free?

They lived in a house right next to Son Goku's house he lived in as a child where money wasn't a requirement for him to survive. He's shown, as an adult, to engage in fishing for their food like it's what they regularly do. Son Gohan also knows how to survive off the land with zero money (or shelter...

Electricity bills, clothes (kids grows up as they age and they'll need new clothes), new furnitures for the new baby, new furnitures as they grow up to be kids and later teens, educational material for their study, they have bills in a grocery store and Chichi said in a super epidode it was expensi...

Re: Dragonball vs Dragon Ball (space or no space?)

I think it mostly comes down to user preference. On Amazon Japan, every time I see "DRAGON BALL" in English, it's with the space (and often in all caps, too). I remember it being very popular here for awhile just to write it out as Dragonball, though. I think if you wanted to be technical, it's two ...

Re: How rich was Goku over the series or does he just do things for free?

Kid Goku didn't know the value of money, so he didn't care for it. Adult Goku knows the value of money, but still doesn't care for it much, as long as he has food on his table. Chichi is the person that worries about it as she's aware of the bills they have to pay, so she instigates Goku to work. A...

Re: Why does New Namek look identical to the original Namek?

It doesn't look exactly the same in the manga, but I would imagine the color scheme used in the anime would be the same.

Re: "Goku never kissed": Do you take it as a joke or (un)funny trivia?

I take it as a one-off joke never to be referred to again. People can take it as canon or not if they want to and it won't bother me either way. Of course, it sort of backpedals on Son Goku's more or less "finally kind of normal" personality in the Boo Arc, but I'm not exactly taking Super all that ...

Re: How would Goku and Vegeta align politically?

They're aware of. and interact with, the higher multiverse and its cosmic bureaucracy. Any sort of politics taking place on Earth is probably petty squabbles in their eyes. That said, Goku has no reason to hate anyone who isn't out to hurt anybody and Vegeta grew up with people simply killing anyone...

Re: What if you gained a Saiyan transformation? Who would you use it against to test your power?

I would test it against those punching machines from the Boo Arc. I'd get a real kick out of seeing how much punching power I have when I'm trying to tap the machine as lightly as possible. If I wanted to test myself against another character, though, it would be Boo Arc Son Gohan. I say this becaus...

Chi Chi's gone back to her old ways of, "My boy needs to study and grow up to be a productive member of society," type of mom. She's probably got Son Goten trapped in the house with his nose stuck in the books just like she did with Son Gohan. Goten was never born in Trunks' future, so Black is cert...

Re: Fans want to see a Dragon Ball reboot

Hey. If they wanna get on board with doing some movies that cover the manga material or a proper version of what Kai was supposed to be, I'm totally all for it. I just ask that they pretty much stick to what happened in the manga like they did with DB and Z. Speaking of DB, hopefully such a reboot w...

Re: How long would it take Goku to master a new martial art?

His learning something like the Kaio Ken and Spirit Bomb is basically the equivalent of learning a new martial art in the world of Dragon Ball. That took him about a year as an adult. It actually took him less than ½ a year, as he first had to traverse Snake Way and then catch Bubbles, which left h...

Re: How long would it take Goku to master a new martial art?

Son Goku learned the Kamehameha pretty much instantly, but it took him awhile to get it looking like Muten Roshi's. Then, he starting doing his own thing with it. That took many years, but we'll skip ahead to when he's an adult. His learning something like the Kaio Ken and Spirit Bomb is basically t...

I could go into extreme detail, but that would be another 1,000 word essay and I want to save that until I have a higher belt rank, more experience, more authority on the topic of Jiujitsu, and an even deeper understanding of the spirit of Dragon Ball.

I'm kind of a fan of the plot and tone of Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!! I got to catch up with some fan favorite characters. There was nostalgia but it wasn't piled on too heavily. Also, a lot of the cast got in on the action in some small way! The problem that needed to be solved wasn't som...

It could very well have been an intentional "accident" to stir the pot a little bit. A good chunk of fans are pretty frustrated that there's no official release still and it's been a year already. However, if they go, "Hey. Post this. Let a few people see it. Then, take it down," it gets people exci...

Re: What would you want in A Kai of the original Dragon Ball

I'd honestly just want a few movies similar to Path to Power. I know some people do the like how Path to Power was executed, but I loved the crap out of it and I'd love to see a couple more made to round out the arcs up through the 23rd Budokai.

I'm 100% okay with Goku Black. All the other Son Goku look-alikes were created in the 90s and I experienced those the majority of those characters for the first time between 1998 and 2002. With anywhere up to 18 years of separation between someone like Tullece and Goku Black, I personally don't feel...
