1. You're proving my point. Goku defeating Buu logically CANNOT be about Maijin Buu in general. It's SPECIFICALLY about one and only one Buu. That's the impossible double standard. Even when an excerpt specifies one very specific version of Buu, you just ignore how it and talk about Buu in general. Then we also have to ignore how Daizenshuu says Goku is fellow strongest with some one as he salutes Kid Buu. We don't need to interprete the Daiz text because the text itself answers any ambiguity in another excerpt.Darkprince410 wrote: 1/2) It's not an impossible double standard, especially in the second entry, which can only logically be read as all being about Majin Buu in general. No specifics to be discerned amongst what is said, just very generalized statements that fit Buu entirely.
3) The DBS manga can easily be interpreted, and more logically so, as again speaking of Buu in general. Buu is the mightiest enemy overall at the time, and his actions throughout the arc brought the Earth's population to the brink of extinction, and Goku eventually defeated him with the Genki Dama. Since it's all still the same Buu, from the Pure Evil Buu to Pure Buu, it cannot be extracted from what else is said to pinpoint that it is referring just to Pure Buu.
4) I addressed this in our last argument on the matter. It's a Toei-ism, and they've skewed Goku's personal feats to extremes many times before when it doesn't coincide with what Toriyama wrote or established.
5) And said article is contradicted by Toriyama (the whole "Bibidi created Buu" bit that the article put out). Since this is a retcon from the manga, any source citing it afterward is of questionable veracity at best.
I don't know where you're coming from with me taking a double standard when it comes to statements based on context to determine specific forms of Buu or not, because the statements I've been using establish themselves based on exact time. Rou Kaioushin says Goku and Gohan can't beat "this current Majin Buu", meaning Gotenks Buu (the Buu at the time). Goku says he and Vegeta have weakened Buu considerably, but are still no match for him is in response to Vegeta saying for them to escape right then, after having reverted Buu to regular Evil Buu. Again, setting in stone exactly which Buu is being referred to. There's no vagueness about it because the context is clearly there. In your examples though, again, everything can be interpreted to be Buu in general, and, in turn, allows for Evil Buu to be stronger and perfectly fit the entire narrative of Pure Buu being a weaker Buu overall, and perfect for Super Saiyan 3 Goku, who was weaker than Gohan and Gotenks.
2. The DBS manga can no longer be interpreted any way to have Gohan stronger than Goku or Kid Buu anymore. This Goku/Buuhan scan is specific to the DBS manga and it's published by VJump, the publication that releases the DBS manga. VJump is also owned by Shueisha, owner the DB manga rights.
3. You're relying on an Ad Honimem fallacy. "Toei did it therefore they're wrong." That's your general argument. It doesn't actually matter if Toei did it because Toriyama recognizes the DBS anime (and also the manga) as continuations of his story. So even if you dislike how Toei handles the material, their material still counts. And dismissing it as a Toei thing also doesn't change the fact that the anime in this instance is merely agreeing with what Daizenshuu said decades earlier and what the DBS manga is saying now.
4. This isn't an issue because all the scan is doing is citing the manga. The manga said Bibidi created Buu so that's what it's saying. And these kinds of arguments never hold much weight anyway. Your argument is "This source made a mistake therefore we can dismiss anything else it might have said." That's an impossible standard. Einstein made mistakes. Darwin made mistakes. So using this kind of logic, Relativity and Evolution are questionable at best.
The impossible double standard is actually readily apparent. Goku defeated Buu, the strongest in the universe. That's specific context. It can only be talking about Kid Buu. Using your own words, Goku defeating Buu is "setting in stone exactly which Buu is being referred to." You read that as "Buu in general" when it can't get any more clear than that. So why are you allowed to use context to specify specific verisons of Buu but somehow "Gokud defeated Buu" can be used to describe every Buu ever? That's the double standard. You get to specify which Buu. No one else can. Same applies to Goku saluting Kid Buu as his fellow strongest. Doesn't count. Why?
As already mentioned for your other points, Old Kaio Shin never sees Goku fight and when Goku says he can't beat Super Buu, he's not at full power and he has multiple disadvantages. By contrast the scan in VJump just confirms that for the DBS manga, specifically mentions Buuhan and Goku being on par. That's specific right? The anime ToP arc specifcally establishes that the Genki Dama must be stronger than Gohan which puts Kid Buu above Gohan as well. That's very specific too. Daiz has a picture of Goku saying his feelings are only understood by his fellow strongest. That specifically talking about Goku being one of two strongest. There's no way to get around that either. And all those are very clearly stated and they're all reiterations of what is stated in the Kid Buu saga of the OG manga. That's the strength of my argument. I can tell you what I think until I'm blue in the face but the fact that the manga guide and both DBS versions confirm what I believe is what makes my argument all the more compelling. Like it or not, this is the official narrative.
