Goku's mother...appearing soon?!

Post by TheDevilsCorpse » Sat Feb 01, 2014 10:03 am

So thanks to the Twitter feed, she uh...seems to have a name now thanks to Toriyama's interview in the Saikyou Jump for the Episode of Bardock "Super Kanzenban", and we're apparently going to be able to see her as well...

She can be found in the bonus pages of the Ginga Patrol Jaco volume out in April.

Finally.I thought that Toriyama completely forgot about Goku's mother.

For your information, it also says that she was not cut out for fighting due to being gentle. She used be a member of Bardock's team and "developed some feelings for" Bardock after being saved by him for several times. It was a rare case for Saiyans who normally don't develop male-female relationships except for for "breeding purposes".

Seriously? I always love new tidbits of information! Here I was only thinking we weren't going to get anymore on her besides a name until Jaco's volume release.

Minor question. Is her pun easy to determine; do we know what she is named after already?

Future Super Saiyan form in Dragonball Heroes?

She's named after spring onion, which is "negi" in Japanese

Ugh, why? This sounds so pointless.

Unless they actually do another Bardock special or something :/

Not going to lie, I thought this thread was an April Fools joke for a second until I realized it's still cold as fuck.

I wonder what kind of response this will get; especially by those who are adamantly against the series needlessly ruining the ambiguity of the story's lore.

We already had a Bardock special that covered the important events surrounding Goku's birth (minus Gine or Raditz being around). I think having her appear in the supplemental Jaco pages is better than anything they could squash in that short, already depicted time frame.

Both this, and the other topic about the new DBZ movie w/ Vegeta sound really interesting.

I have a theory...since its gonna focus on Vegeta, and Goku's mom might appear, it could be a movie about Vegeta as a kid before Planet Vegeta exploded?

Regardless I'm excited. I'm sorta against a complete full-on new series, but any new movies or specials I'm all for it!

I don't know, maybe it's just me but I enjoy little tidbits of lore like this, it might not serve a larger purpose but it provides some information which expands the universe as we know it, and at least it puts the Selypa rumour to rest. I wonder if she'll resemble Raditz at all, if it is that Goku and Raditz even share the same mother.

I don't know if the Bardock TV Special is canon or not but he ignored his son because he was a weakling and that as a father showed he was a dick without any concern for his son. Even Vegeta hugged Trunks before his farewell.

Still, caring about his wife means he wasn't the world's worst father.

Oh yeah, skipped over this on my last reply. Thanks a lot.

So far the interview is proving to be fairly interesting. Revealing Goku's mom and talking about potential plans for a future film. I wonder if there is anything else worth reading on it, or if the rest are generic questions? Seems like every new Toriyama interview is 90% rehash of previous information from repeated questions, and then 10% window of chance for new material.

I took that to mean he was saving her because she was his comrade on the battlefield, and most Saiyans have the brothers in arms thing going on. It only says she developed feelings for Bardock, but not that he did as well...

Always love it when Toriyama drops bombshells like this out of nowhere. 8)

I wonder if she'll appear in a new movie?

So we all thought Goku became a good guy because of the head bump, but it is turning out that both his parents actually had some good in them :think:

But is falling in love "good"? Horrible people can fall in love with other horrible people. All this proves is that they're a little more human than the average Saiyan.

Well then...I stand corrected. That does just make Bardock a huge jackass in regards to Goku (until the whole vision thing started). lol

Also, it says she is too nice for fighting. So she's too nice to be suited for fighting, but that doesn't mean she was born with a low battle power. So. I wonder if that means she's weak too, like Tarble?
