I missed a good amount of them but Trouble in Arlia DEFINITELY should have stayed, loved it.

Trouble in Arlia always sat sort of wrongly with me. Why would they have an unscheduled stop while in hibernation? And why would they obliterate the planet from orbit? Either the planet was valuable, and that is why the stopped there, or it wasn't, and they wouldn't have taken a detour from their mission.

The planet WAS valuable at one time. If i remember correctly, after the new king took power, the world went to crap, or maybe that's just a dub thing. The unscheduled stop thing never bothered me. It's like, if you are going somewhere and a friend asks you to stop off somewhere because it's on the way anyway, why not do it. I don't think Vegeta or Nappa felt they were losing much time.
The biggest truths aren't original. The truth is ketchup. It's Jim Belushi. Its job isn't to blow our minds. It's to be within reach.

Memories of Gohan. The episode with Gohan's birthday before Cell and flashbacks to him as a baby.

Most of the Saiyan arc filler with Gohan. It added a lot to his training and character more than a simple timeskip did.

Someone knows if Gohan turning SSJ for the first time in RoSaT is filler?

The transformation sequence is filler, but it's still in Kai.

The Other World Tournament and filler of Gohan surviving on his own in the Saiyan arc. That was filler that was original and very well thought out.

Zero. Preferably keep them separate an given proper justice for each series as what they are. Original series to have all the filler it naturally has. Kai having none to stay true to the manga cut version of the show.

Since numerous sequences focusing on Cell's human hunt were retained anyway, I would have preferred the house of mirrors (or whatever it's called) scene be kept as well.

The innards of Buu filler. I really enjoyed that sequence in Z and would have loved to see modern English Vegeta and Goku's banter in that sequence.

The Saiyan saga filler is what was definitely needed the most. You learn about Gohan so much in those episodes.

Most of the filler with Gohan's training in the Saiyan Saga... and the Serpent Road stuff (falling down hell and Snake Princess).

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.
