God, I'm so stupid sometimes! I didn't even bother to read the list on the new page, I just assumed that the page I requested included more of the list, because of it's existence! I didn't remember that the old version hadn't translated the actual page.
So, I re-read the whole thing again after sometime through the new HQ scans. So, I noticed that in this AF, Toyble includes both the anime & manga, as well as the movies and the other manga of Toriyama. We see Broli, Tapion & Janemba, and for Janemba to be there, this means that at least all the DBZ movies (except #7) happened. For Toriyama's other manga, we see plenty of characters from them on the list I requested. Cashman, Beelzebub, Neko Majin Z, Kajika, Tocchio, Suppaman, all those are from other manga by Toriyama, and there could be more there that I missed. As for why I say both anime & manga? For anime, GT & Paikuhan are enough. Even if you say that Paikuhan is also a movie character, GT is sequel to the anime, and uses the Holy Water from Garlic Jr. arc, so filler are canon here. But why the manga? In the "final chapter" Goku Jr. & Vegeta Jr. mention Kame Sennin's comments in the manga after the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai arc, and after Cell arc, the ones that he breaks the fourth wall and says that it will continue for a little more. So, maybe in this AF, Freeza killed Cargot, but Goku & Piccolo went for driving lessons too.
James Teal (Animerica 1996) wrote:When you think about it, there are a number of similarities between the Chinese-inspired Son Goku and that most American of superhero icons, Superman. Both are aliens sent to Earth shortly after birth to escape the destruction of their homeworlds; both possess super-strength, flight, super-speed, heightened senses and the ability to cast energy blasts. But the crucial difference between them lies not only in how they view the world, but in how the world views them.
Superman is, and always has been, a symbol for truth, justice, and upstanding moral fortitude–a role model and leader as much as a fighter. The more down-to-earth Goku has no illusions about being responsible for maintaining social order, or for setting some kind of moral example for the entire world. Goku is simply a martial artist who’s devoted his life toward perfecting his fighting skills and other abilities. Though never shy about risking his life to save either one person or the entire world, he just doesn’t believe that the balance of the world rests in any way on his shoulders, and he has no need to shape any part of it in his image. Goku is an idealist, and believes that there is some good in everyone, but he is unconcerned with the big picture of the world…unless it has to do with some kind of fight. Politics, society, law and order don’t have much bearing on his life, but he’s a man who knows right from wrong.
