Is this arousal-bait or something??

Anyways, I'll just quote Goku on this one: "What do I care about your dirty old fanny??"
He definitely didn't say fanny.

Anyway, any time I saw something like this in anime I just thought "Why, Japan?", but I don't care anymore.

That sequence was so confusing when I first read it. I think my sister put it best. "He's like ten, you dumb bitch."
As someone who watches over K-8 (and some High School)...

I've seen some pretty perverted 10 year olds. Whether they were actually that way, or just regurgitating what they saw on TV is unclear... But regardless, they're definitely not innocent.
Yeah I was horny around 9-10.

Cowboy Bebop definitely helped as well.

I was 16 and relatively new to anime, but I had already seen way worse in even PG-13 rated movies. This was before I got desensitized to seeing them in every other anime. I'd say the No Balls scene was really surprising to see, though.

Forget Bulma's panties, I was shocked when I first saw a clip of her flashing Muten Roshi and showing us her naked butt, making me think Dragon Ball was an adults-only anime! :shock:
the combo of watching the more raunchy stuff first and watching the series in Japanese definitely made me one of those kids who were like "No!! The Japanese Version Is For Adults It's Just For Kids In America", lmao.

that's what fanart and doujins are for
My opinions suck. You should probably mute me to spare yourself having to see them.

Cigarettes and Whisky and Wild, Wild Women are the only reasons to get out of bed.

Because that wasn't enough of a train wreck as is.

God damn it. Now you guys have me remembering all the terrible "cunt boy" Goku fanfics people were writing in the late 00s.

I don't know about FTM Goku stories but I found a fantastic Yamcha one some months back. It was very reassuring to see fanfiction that queers canonically het characters has evolved past the point of being fetish bait.

Luckily, fan content is being married by a more educated base of fans that is more aware of their own queerness. The size and visibility of queer fandom is greater than ever now.

I always felt like the dirty humor in DB are not much different from what you would see in a PG-13 movie like Austin Powers.

Much like Julie I never cared, except I was a 7 year old boy.

It's ill-fitting for me. Dragon Ball is not a bedtime story. And "laid-back old man" is not how I would describe Yanami's narrator. To me he sounds like the kind of uncle that shows up to the birthday party with loads of fruit punch soda and stuffs himself with pizza and ice cream, or takes you out on his boat at the lake in the summer and goes skinny dipping or something.

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:

I thought nothing of it. I was already aware of far more suggestive content.

Oh, I wasn't thinking, it's kind of an awkward translation since fanny means vagina in the UK. 🤷‍♀️

When I was doing my own translation of the manga I wrote it as "Why would I wanna touch your poopy ass?"
