and ironically the earth was the only planet in the universe that could stop Majin Buu
Techincally, the Z Warriors made evrything worse by actiively allowing Buu to be awoken.

Any other sane group would have stopped Babidi and Dabura.
Who else in the universe could stop Dabura?
Mirai Trunks stopped Buu's release while working with Supreme Kai.

Most storytelling requires some level of coincidence or you wouldn’t have a story to tell.
Pretty much this. It's why I don't think stories should not feel the need to over explain these sorts of issues.
They do this because a bunch of losers on the internet who though they were geniuses because they realized that a bunch of made up stories fell apart if you looked to deep into them.

BTW, I feel the need to explain the thread's title, in case *somebody* didn't get it. Simply put, the entire of the Boo Saga/Arc rests (amongst other things) on ''Boo being sealed on Earth'', so if THAT is questioned, then by implication the entire plot of the arc can fall apart. Just to clear it up.

BTW 2: Is it ''Boo'' or ''Buu''? Which would be the correct spelling? And how is it written on Steven Simmons's subtitles (can't remember that, unfortunately)?

Technically they are both "correct". The character's name comes from the "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" song in Disney's Cinderella. ブウ(buu) is just a Japanese phonetic approximation of what is typically written in English as "boo". So the name is usually transliterated as "Boo" to reflect this (as in the Simmons subtitles). But of course there are no hard rules for thrown-together magical terms like in Cinderella, and "Buu" is accurate based on standard romanizing of Japanese. "Boo" is considered arguably more accurate because it better represents the name source for English speaking audiences. FUNimation uses "Buu" in their dubbed version.

Thanks for the explanation!
