Same concept, but Goku's already gone (not dead though)

Phew! That was a tough pick! :P
So much Goku tho...
Brah I now know what to counter against this much Kakkarot!

Broly, Legendary Super Saiyan Broly, and Legendary Super Saiyan 3 Broly. Take that!

Its less Goku than what we are getting now... LOL SARCASM!

Seriously, while I do like Goku and I dont think he gets too much spotlight. Toei should give more characters the spotlight to everyone.

19 years ago I was rushing home from school to watch DBZ on Cartoon Network, and today I've rushed home from work to watch DBS on Pop. I guess it's true the more things change the more they stay the same. :lol:

1 - Goku
2 - Vegeta
3 - Piccolo

Seriously Goku and Vegeta will obviously be main characters and with high probability Piccolo too.
Other 3 will be Goten, Trunks and Gohan.
If after EoZ, than we will also see more of Pan and Uub.

If I had to pick 3 it'd be Goku, Vegeta & Gohan. I hope Gohan becomes a pseudo-main character once again like in Z (I considered him a dual main character tbh), and I would like for Piccolo, Krillin, Tien and 18 to have more relevance. Maybe 17's role in the story can be expanded up due that whole thing about how he's a park ranger and stuff

Goku, Vegeta, and future (time patrol) Trunks. Piccolo would be great too, though!

Pan, Uub, and Goku for the first saga with a new character becoming the third afterwards.
Don't be too alarmed if I just don't show up for a few months. Hooray for fleeting interests!

If it's during the ten-year downtime, then Goku, Vegeta and Piccolo.
If it's after End of Z, then Oob, Pan and Bra.

I think 5 would be a better main cast size than 3... and I'd want it to rotate. That's what I loved about Dragon Ball, originally. From the beginning of the manga until the end, it rotated its cast quite effectively, although I feel Goku and Vegeta should have both been phased out.

So I guess I'd start with phasing Goku and Vegeta out, let Gohan take the lead while Goten, Trunks and 18 get more development, while also giving more screentime to Boo. Then eventually they'd be phased out for Oob, Pan and Bra.

Beerus is a character who I definitely think can be used more, but with his sleeping it wouldn't make sense if he was constantly active every time a threat appeared. It's a good way to keep him above the threat level of the villains without having him there to solve everything, though.
I'm re-watching Dragon Ball GT in full on my blog. Check it out if you're interested in my thoughts on the series as I watch through it!

1) The kid from Dragon Ball Heroes
2) Gohan's son
3) Kid Boo (or something like him)

It's time to let Goku and Vegeta chill while the new gen takes the role.

1.The kid from the DBH seems impossible.
2.Gohan doesnt have a son, he has a daughter tho.
3.You mean Uub?

rotated yes... but always is Goku.
if goku--- also Vegeta

best a 5 main cast

exemple

saiyan saga
Goku/Piccolo/gohan/krillin

namek saga

goku/vegeta/krillin/gohan/piccolo

cell saga

goki/vegeta/mirai trunks/piccolo/gohan

boo saga

goku/vegeta/goten/kid trunks/gohan

future saga

goku/vegeta/trunks&goten or Gohan/Oob/ possible: Mirai Trunks/piccolo (they need a machine or power up)

Pan is very young, Bra is possibly future Bulma with many fights skills
Favorite Character: Vegeta, Goku, Piccolo
Previously I like: Kid Gohan
I do not like: Adult Gohan
I hope more: Trunks and Goten
I claim for: A girlfriend and a happy life for Yamcha. Women SSJ
Hate: Send all women to take care of children, including A18.
Need more of: Ten Sin Han

problems

Goku and Vegeta are very strong

let them fight their children / students and stare? difficult

it would be like Goku on Namek, they are lost / busy until the end of the fight but finally appear

this solves the rest of the cast have leadership a lot of time (as Krillin and gohan in Namek) , is consistent, because you know that they have immense power and will not sit idly, keeps the interest in the series

When they disappeared in the saga boo, dead both in theory no return much interest waned, and this is real.

Beerus
Whis

Could be a fun dynamic.
