I may be the only one who cares but I noticed a discrepency between the manga and Broly film with regards to what Gine said about Bardock's worrying about his son. In the manga Gine said it wasn't like a Saiyan man to care about his children, or was that worry about them? Anyway she DEFINATELY said it was unlike a Saiyan man to worry about his children in the Broly film.

She said it wasn't like him to worry about his son. In the film it's worded slightly different but the overall point is the same.

Not (much) related to DB, but why 80's to 90's anime had no problem on having like 2 openings and 2 endings on the original run while later 2000's animes had like 3 openings and dozens of endings?
I mean I'm rewatching InuYasha and for the love of god, 4 openings and I don't know 5 ou 6 endings in less than one hundred of episodes, a little bit too much.

so this is kinda my own thing but i remember for years (maybe due to just me being a contrarian and going out of my ways to find flaws in the cell arc), thinking that the cell vs gohan fight was really bad and that it was a bad way to end a bad arc, and after re-reading it and watching it for the first time, i actually really like it. there's for some issues, but i'm really not sure why i disliked it so much, i enjoy the story it's telling and gohan going SSJ2 has always been one of my favorite dragon ball moments.

i actually just enjoy the cell arc a lot more now in general, even if is still one of my least favorite arcs, because man i used to like straight up hate it, lol.

Probably Dragon Ball Online. Rather than waste away in old age, Goku and Vegeta go to space to have their final battle, never to be seen again. At least, that's how I understand the story to go.

it's from a comic toriyama drew for a magazine at about the start of the freeza, according to the "intended endings guide".

The Android/Cell arc is the only arc in all of Dragon Ball where the innocent people who are killed in the crossfire by the villains actions and the heroes decisions aren't brought back to life.

yeah the wish probably should've been "bring back those who were killed by dr gero and his creations" rather than just people killed by cell, haha. maybe toriyama just forgot about #19 and #20 and all the harm they did :S

all though that still wouldn't include that one guy vegeta killed.....

They ruined this cute meeting by putting a random woman right there. :| They should have faithfully adapted this scene with only Bardock and Gine on-screen.

I also would like it to have as a wallpaper (without the woman).

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:

Nappa's victims weren't brought back either.

There's been a lot of questions I had about where certain characters were in certain arcs, but one in particular that's lingering my mind is... Where the heck was Android 8 during the Android Saga?
