It doesn't matter if he was or not, he stil benefitted from Kuririn being there.batistabus wrote:Do you honestly feel that anime Frost was more interesting than manga Freeza, or even manga Frost? I just cannot relate.
Kuririn also disqualified contestants, did some teamwork and showed the audience they should pay attention to their surroundings in a setting like that. You might want to compare their roles but the manga doesn't measure up.
You realize this is a fictional story and you shouldn't be projecting what you think happens in real life, right?Son-Kakaroto wrote:Are you joking? it's the direct opposite for me. I appreciate things like this, because I believe in life there's only ONE SOVEREIGN authority to whom we must all answer too! Our fates be sealed before the begging of time, destiny awaits! In today's culture, it's becoming increasingly popular for people to coalition together because of this beleif in "humanity", "togetherness as One" and all other large-scale collectivist/Marxist movements where it comes from the belief of "If we "believe", we can do anything" or some other cr@p! which leads to people selling away their sovereignty and God-given freedoms to collectivist movements in the hope of some Utopian theory future sh*t where I can be anything I want to be. lol, yeah no. That's why I like toyotaro, he actaullys keeps things consistent and doesn't cheat (fan service - at least during the zamsu arc) to provide cheap fan service to achieve cheap "pretty narratives". He doesn't have insects like Kuririn and tien doing much because they are weak and useless, as it was MEANT TO BE. And to zeno, yeah zeno is the god of everything! By his will is what keeps the multiverse in tact or not. NOTHING else, no character development or "redemption" for him. Why would he care to have one? And what are petty and insignificant mortals going to do to change the attitude of all powerful zeno? I dream I could do stuff like this. Petty unwise and unruly weaklings dare testify and protest against me to achieve unnatural things? absolute not. Those I would rule who be a flower to my kingdom, they do well - those who try to be a thorn to myself and kingdom, they will BEGONE! People ought to accept that some things ought not meant to be. Accept it and makes use of what you have, dutifully improving on what you have and let fate guide you. Not rig the natural orders of things so you can get what you want. That's actual character stagnation!
Kinda like Kuririn taking on ssj blue even though it made no sense and was beyond stupid, it was just to show "it doesn't matter if you're a human and haven't trained all but for just a few months, you can go against ssj blue goku"... all to instill this "feel good" feeling of human empowerment in dragon ball. The same thing in the future trunks arc with stinking tear gas could confuse gods of ssj ROSE black and zamsu? or giving ssj2 trunks un natural wank just because "it's his story so he deserves it". Rigging the system to get what you want because it makes for "prettier" narrative, irregardless of it actually made sense and was AUTHENTIC.
