I'm not saying they needed it. Just that it helps. Almost always. Hit is a perfect example. Yes, we know almost nothing about his past, but the knowledge alone that he is a thousand year-old assassin is actually enough to make him an intriguing character. There's an implicit intricacy surrounding that piece of information that a punk prodigy gang leader her shy friend doesn't have.
Anyway, I was just giving an example of what could've helped. As I said, I feel like the whole "tingly back" and Kale's ultra bursts of jealousy are what rubbed people the wrong way. It was supposed to show how talented Cauli was that she could find a short-cut so fast and how attached Kale was to Cauli; felt more like the writers wanted to get it over and done with instead of writing a more complex reason for them becoming ssj.
Maybe so. If people are looking for complexity then that's one thing. But as you said, the way it ended up being written does show the Talent of Cauli and the attachment of Kale. It does it's job on introducing these characters and who they are in a way everyone understands. If people don't like that then, that's all well and good, but I suppose my main issue is with those who take that and pretend like it makes them the worst thing ever to ever happen, and that's the part I find ridiculous.
Especially Kale, because it feels like this fanbase has been so trained to hate Broly that anything resembling him triggers some meme-ish, caveman like impulse like with what happened to episode 100. Not one of the greatest episodes by any stretch of the imagination, but a perfectly fine episode that had a really good animated sequence of Goku vs kale, and showed off Jiren with it's only real blemish is having Kale tank the kamehamea for the sole purpose of a Broly homage. But the only thing I ever hear people say about 100 basically condenses down to "Me no like Broly. Kale look like broly, so episode bad."
Maybe I sounds a little bit ridiculous now and I'm just generalizing , but this has become more recent with recent episodes featuring Kale and I see a lot more of "uh oh, are we about to have a repeat of the horrible no good very bad episode that is 100?
Whateves though, at this point I'm just venting about a relatively small issue involving a character I only like ok that may have gone way beyond our initial discussion. So I'll stop rambling like a mad man.
Apologies for going off the rails.
