The Buu arc is wayyyyy better than the Androids and Cell arcs.

They both have their flaws, but they’re not poorly written by any means. The Cell arc has a problem settling on an antagonist and the Boo arc has a problem settling on a protagonist, but they both do a good job at advancing the series’ arcs and themes in a satisfying manner. The Boo arc especially feels like the most appropriate ending Toriyama could have given Dragon Ball.

How is it necessarily bad that the antagonist changed during the arc?
