I can confirm this answer >>122875840 to be true.

As an expert on the subject, I find Boku no Pico to address the forever permanent and universal human concern of "How much dick is too much dick"

Boku no Pico has been widely recommended no matter the recommendation thread (thinly veiled or not) and continues to be a game changer to this day.

Boku no Pico has been a great influence on a great number of works of not just it's kind but in art in general. Truly it's influence cannot be understated.

As I am an expert, myself and people like myself find it to be a masterpiece worthy of respect and admiration, not just for it's influence and addressing of topics but for the challenge it provides by hiding your copy of Boku no Pico from both the authorities and any unsuspecting family members who may stumble upon the masterpiece.

So in closing, the actual answer you are looking for OP is indeed Boku no Pico and I highly recommend you check it out.

There's nothing remotely challenging about Dragon Ball in any way, shape or form.

So then the concerns brought up by Boku no Pico has just now been validated. "How much dick is too much dick?"
Is there a quantifiable metric in which we can figure out the maximum dick allowable at any given time?

More like part 5 was challenging because ot was so boring and the characters were uninteresting.

You're wrong. It addresses spirituality and daoist purity from the very start. That's what nimbus represents.

Also Challenging yet rewarding is not a benchmark of a classic because it's on OP image. That's retarded. There's nothing challenging about tons of classic literature. Art isn't always designed to be an intellectual study. Dragon Ball is spiritual.

Television does something books don't, too - it shows us animated pictures. It's a feature of the medium. It doesn't make the one superior to the other. Thematically, the medium's impact is much more subtle and doesn't decide the worth of a work.

Do you have even the SLIGHTEST clue how many books have been written, and that 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% are just useless droll shit with no cultural or artistic value?

Literature is like digging through a UNIVERSE of shit and trying to find one single picomote of dust.

As much as I don't want to say this, as someone who has spent too much time studying "classics" and also spent time discussing subjects very similar to this with "experts", I can safely say that the "definition", if you can call it that, is not only tinted by nostalgia but outdated as fuck.
But that shouldn't be surprising. With the coming of the internet and the globalization of the world, there is too much stuff that is simply outdated.
