Why? Is it not enough that she gets bullied in the show?
>>
ChiChi is better.

>>122301621
ChiChi would marry the very next man to say he loved her.

The Ox King is the only reason she's not a whore.

Bullying is all she's good for

She has no personality beyond that

Because everyone skipped Dragon Ball and went straight to Z.

It's not like anyone talks about Ranfan or that one cute mermaid Goku brought to Roshi's home.
>>
>>122304093
Why would anyone skip to Z?
>>
>>122304329
Because Funi and Toonami execs were retarded and aired Z before the original in murrika
>>
>>122304093
the mermaid was there for half a second
ranfran and blonde launch are the best
>>
>>122304471
This pretty much.

There were people who watched BoG who didn't know who the fuck Pilaf was.

>>122304329

Not that anon, but here in the states, Dragonball wasn't released until the early 2000's. It was skipped not by choice of the viewer but by US companies. Personally I loved it, it answered a lot of questions about the series I have always had.

Point for discussion, the first DBZ movie should have been the 5th DB movie.
>>
>>122304471
>>122304816
Dragonball seems like it shouldve been more obvious to air first to an anime-ignorant audience. its feels like a western cartoon half the time.
>>
Faggot, start listening to your parents. Anime is evil and you should be ashamed for watching this shit.
>>
>>122305055

Well they had succeeded in making DBZ popular here but forgot that it had ended in Japan almost a decade ago. So they released DB and DBGT to extend viewership as much as possible before the franchise wrapped up complete and Toonami shutdown
>>
>>122304329
>>122304471
Dragonball did air before Z in America, but it was localized by a different studio, and aired at the crack of dawn where I lived.
>>
>>122304471
>>122304508
Yep, most "fans" of the franchise seem to have no fucking clue that episode 1 of DBZ is literally just episode 154 of DB. It aired exactly a week after the last ep of DB in the exact same timeslot. Same deal with the transition from DBZ to DBGT. There were none of these huge breaks between releases that newfag millennials assume have always been the standard due to crap like Naruto and Bleach.

Anyone who starts a 508 episode series on episode 154 needs to shut the fuck up about it before they expose themselves for the idiot they are.
>>
>>122305506
Only the first 13 eps, there wasn't a full run until after DB finished airing in shitnami

OP here.

I'm getting to what I assume is the end of the Red Ribbon saga.

I'm not a fan of the whole:

>1st level -> Boss
>2nd level -> Boss
>3rd level -> Boss
>Etc.

Formula.

Just feels like its draging out the episodes on purpose.

>>122305055
Dragon Ball probably would have been a decently successful kids cartoon but it would have never become a phenomenon the same way Z did.
DBZ struck gold because was released to the right audience at the right time.
>>
Are there any other mangaka who literally forgets about one of their characters?
>>
>>122307693
I doubt it, though Toriyama's cancerous personality is half the reason the manga is so fun.
It's constantly surprising you and making strange turns because he made shit up on the spot and had no respect for his own characters.
>>
>>122307522
Sadly, no.

the reason dragonball took so long to reach Murrican TVs was because Americans couldn't handle seeing Goku's shota monkey dick every 5 minutes.

Keep it in mind and pay attention because it comes up again in DBZ. I want to know about Dr Gero and why he turned himself into an android. Also why he kept supporting his generals even after his army collapsed
>>
>>122306600
I found Muscle Tower to be a lot of fun in the manga. The Red Ribbon saga as a whole is easily my favorite in the series.
I've never seen the anime version though, and considering how it's Toei shit pacing isn't much of a surprise.

>>
>>122304329

because that's what they all remember from their childhood. DBZ is what made Dragonball huge in America. DB tried once with harmony gold and failed and then a few years later, DBZ started getting dubbed and put on toonami. THAT is when it got big. It'd be awhile later before Dragon Ball was properly introduced to the states

>>122305799
I think around here it aired on UPN together with Sailor Moon in the mid 90s.
