Which family would you live with?

Post by Gonstead » Fri Jul 13, 2012 9:28 am

Same as the title. The Son's, Briefs', Kame House, Satan's and Buu or The Lookout?

For another fun addition, which time period would you start at?

Me? Shhhh... thats actually a tough one so I can't really decide at the moment.

With Bulma's I guess? I don't want to see my father being killed when I am a child and starts to live with a demon waiting to confront these guys who are going to destroy the planet.

Bulma's. Pet dinosaurs, people.

Blooma's, obviously, starting from any time period. She's freakin' rich, I could invite my friends round for sleepovers all the time because of just how big Capsule Corporation HQ is, and look at all the stray pets that Dr. Brief keeps in that garden!

Hmm....I might say the Brief's considering that they're the richest family on earth and you have Bulma and that MIL- er.....Mrs. Brief walking around. :wink: I'd only have to watch out for Vegeta.... Then again living in the Son household would be cool, having Gohan and Goten as friends wouldn't sound too bad. The only bad thing would be that I would live in the middle of no where!

Also,
Briefs=Boo saga

Son= EoZ

I'll go with the Briefs...pre-EoZ at least:

1) Goku makes Vegeta look like Father of the year.

2) Gohan went through hell for most of his childhood and almost all of it on his own.

3) The Sons live in the middle of nowhere.

4) Bulma has mad money in the bank, heck I can wipe my ass with $100 bills and that won't cover even 1% of their income. :mrgreen:

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

The Krillin/Roshi household. I don't think I would eat anything in Goku's house and I don't like Vegeta that much.

I'd rather not be in the city. Roshi's place sounds awesome! The only thing that I would not like about Roshi's place is a chance of a tsunami. However, Roshi's house is a capsule house so we can move to wherever the fuck we want to go to.

So yeah, Roshi's house

I'd love to live at Kame House, personally. Kame Sen'nin is the most fun character in the series, and I have no complaints about Kuririn, Oolong or Lunch either.

The Briefs, definitely! Any time period. Sure, it might be awkward to live in the same area as Vegeta, but then again, the Briefs are probably rich enough to afford a Guest Mansion. I'll just chill in that.

As much as I would love to live at the Kame house (Roshi and I would have a lot in common) it just too cramped. Sure you'll have a great view of the ocean... from all sides, but to live with Roshi, Krillin, 18, Marron, and (possibly) Oolong in small island house? Nah.

The Son house is definitely out. I'm not much of a country bumpkin and living in the middle of the woods seems boring as all hell. Plus Chichi would probably force you to do tons chores just to earn your stay. I love cooking, but to cook for Goku and his kin would be difficult.

The Briefs' house is the most logical answer. They're rich, they'll live in a huge capsule house, and it's located in the city. Plenty of stuff to do around there. The only real issue I see is dealing with Vegeta, which you'll probably won't have much interaction with since he's in the GR half his life.

But I'll choose to live alone in West City. Why? Because no one will invite someone they don't know to live with them. :P

Well, since Capsule Corp. HQ is so frickin' huge, you could go whole days without ever having to see the man at all. Not to mention the fact that he just seems to obsessively train in the gravity room most of the time and would dislike you as much, if not moreso, than you dislike him, so chances are he wouldn't want to talk to you either.

I guess adding Kame House is official then.

I changed my mind, Kuririn and 18. Obvious reasons .

The Brief's house would be the best, for reasons that have already been stated: in the middle of the city with plenty of stuff to do, huge mansion with all the luxuries you could ever want (robot maids!), and plentiful eye candy, whether you enjoy catching a glimpse of Bulma, her hot mom, or even Vegeta stepping out of the shower, his body wrapped in only a towel, his muscles glistening with....uh, what were we talking about again? Oh yeah, pet dinosaurs! If you wanted, you could even train a dinosaur to ride on top of a ball :wink:

And then you daydream for so long that you don't realize you're standing in front of Enma's desk after Vegeta blew you away for intruding on his "private time". :wink:

Yeah, even as far back as the first arc, she invites a violent bandit she barely knows, his pet cat, and a shapeshifting pig who previously kidnapped girls and almost molested her, back to her big-ass house.

It's kind of justified for the Namekians, since they literally had nowhere else to go (would you offer accommodation to a bunch of alien immigrants whose motives for residing in your world you didn't know?) and Blooma had the space. But not Vegeta; Tenshinhan was damn right in asking Yamcha how he could stomach living with him.

Talking of immigration, I wonder how people like God (before he became God and practically disappeared from the normal populace) and Vegeta got past. The government of Dragon World's Earth must have some kind of system in place to stop alien visitors from coming in all the time without permission and just staying there. :P

You would think I would choose Bulma's house, but I would either choose Kame House or The Sons' Household. Both of them are pretty cool. I just like hanging out with people. Meeting Son Goku would be a treat. Sometimes I eat like Goku... :lol:

Can I hang with Roshi? He's got a nice house on a secluded island(with beautiful neighboring islands close by). Plus he'd be a very entertaining roommate and he seems to get the most guests so it's not like I wouldn't get to see anybody. I'd want to live there before Krillin and 18 move in, otherwise it might get too crammed. Of course we could always make extensions, Krillin wouldn't be a bad roomate either.

I would never want to live with Goku and his family. One, he's either always dead or away and two, there doesn't look like there is too much to do. I could deal with Roshi's house because it has a beach and I love the ocean. I'd get board easily living in a small house in the forest.

Bulma and her family would be great but I wouldn't feel comfortable living with Vegeta and Kid Trunks sounds like he'd be a pain in the butt. It's a nice place though and I'd probably visit all the time maybe even try to work with her father.
...Wait what are you doing? Are you still reading this? I finished what I had to say, why don't you move on to the next post?
