Dragon Ball, Z, GT, or Super? Which Bulma can you relate to the most?

Fair enough. I can respect that.

I’d say Bulma circa Tenshinhan saga to Cyborg saga was peak Bulma.

Really gonna represent Bulma with just four images? IMO her range is much broader than that considering every arc or two has her age just a little. In OG-DB for example she goes from sprightly teenager to a young woman by the 23rd TB, and this progresses through Z as she becomes a mature mother. This image (one of my favourites) perfectly expresses this:

The reason why there’s four images to begin with is because I wanted to simplify things as well as representing each Bulma in Ball, Z, GT, & Super.

Ok, I totally agree with that! I really do, actually! I would, however, slightly move her peak towards the Bojack Unbound movie. That outfit she wore in Movie 9 was a great way to finish her run as being that hot & cute!

You again with the Movie 9 Bulma, seriously what is your deal? Periodically both on reddit and here you make new posts about Movie 9 Bulma's appearance lol. It's a fetish, right?

Not sure I understand your obsession with Bulma in the Bojack movie but I’d still considered it covered under the Cyborg arc since it was released just before it finished and takes place shortly after the events.

Dude, just quit it! You even made a stupid comment on my Reddit post dedicating to Hiromi Tsuru who passed away 3 years ago & yet you still wanted to talk about me being “fetish” for something. Look, I like what I like, it is what it is, if you have a problem with it then don’t bother replying to me because I’m not wasting time with anyone giving me that nonsense.

Because of all the outfits she’s ever worn, this is the best she’ll ever look. I keep bringing it up because it doesn’t get talked about as much & I feel like it’s ashamed that this outfit she wore in movie 9 is the greatest she ever looked & yet it doesn’t get much love as well as not being put out a lot on merchandise. Call it “simple” or “casual” sometimes even the most basic can look the greatest if you do it right, & that was the case with Bulma in that Bojack movie.

Because it's a single outfit worn in one single movie and unless you've seen the character design sheets you would have literally only seen her shirt for the 3 or so scenes she even had in it?

Holy crap the third image of GT Bulma on the bottom left is so scary. That sinister grinning face of hers there is 31 flavors of nightmare fuel.

As for which era of her i prefer design wise and such, i'd say it's a toss up between Namek/Freeza and Androids/Cell arc.

1.) Find decent priced copy of Dragon Box Z Vol. 4 (Done)

2.) Collect rest of manga

3.) Get rest of Daizenshuu (2-7)

Design wise, I prefer End of Namek saga Bulma, she was hooot with the long hair, and i'm more into dudes, but even I can admit that she was hot

Character wise, I prefer her in Super the most. I especially liked her in the Zamasu arc where she contributed a lot to the plot.

Gonna go ahead and echo my man here. I like how involved Bulma was in the plot in Super, it saved the fighters from having to do the tedious legwork - not that I'd be opposed to that, but stick to your strengths, yeah?

And this is unequivocally her best hairstyle.

She was possessed by Baby and was a Tuffle slave in that shot. Scary.

Yes, but one of the vast number of people on Earth under the control of Baby's implanted eggs in said arc. Just looking at that shot of Bulma's face whenever it comes up as i'm watching makes my skin crawl every time. The first time i saw the episode many moons ago it really creeped me out for sure. To see a more or less main good character like her (albeit by influence of possession) with that expression is so unnerving.

I think all of her designs are fine, I have no specific favorite, but I must say that I was never a fan of her afro hairstyle - her outfit is nice, though.

Here are also some that I find good...
