Did he just not understand how the time travel? Because Trunks and Cell were crossing alternate realities, not timelines.

Time travel hasn't officially been invented yet. Nobody knows how it works. So Toriyama understands it as much as anybody else.

I'm trying to figure out how many fucking timelines there are

>"Main" Timeline where Trunks warned Goku of the Androids and Gohan defeated Cell. Zamasu is hakai'd by Beerus.
>Future Trunks' timeline where Trunks destroys the Androids and Imperfect Cell, eventually destroyed by Zen-oh
>Cell's timeline where Trunks defeated the Androids via deactivation remote, Cell kills him and takes the time machine
>Unseen timeline where the Future Trunks that was killed by Cell got the deactivation remote
>Timeline where Zamasu murders Gowasu and becomes Goku Black, retroactively erased by Whis' Temporal do-over (might not count since it's technically just the original version of the main timeline)
>Unseen timeline where Future Trunks and Future Mai go to live with Futurer Trunks and Futurer Mai

thinking about all this shit gives you a headache

That Trunks had already been to the past. When Cell went back further than him, he created a new timeline which Trunk would later retroactively arrive in.

It's a mystery why the time machine was set to a year before Freeza's arrival.
>>
>>154908108
But the general concept of time travel is moving either forward or backwards in time from your present time. Traveling to different realities is a whole different ball game.
>>154908091
More importantly, why are two different "timelines(realities)" linked to the main timeline? How and why does Cell's machine conviently take him to the same timeline Future Trunks traveled to?

>Unseen timeline where Future Trunks and Future Mai go to live with Futurer Trunks and Futurer Mai
That one is the most retarded one, gonna laugh if its appears in the manga because it would show how hard Toriyama dropped the ball

>Understanding time travel
>Understanding something we don't even know is possible
The way is works in DB, Alternate Timelines are just divergences from the main timeline. I doubt alternate realities are even a thing in dragon ball

I've never seen such a complicated story full of holes become so popular.

How did this man do it?

He is good at drawing fights, like really good.

I think everything would have been a lot better if the zeno palace existed not just outside of the universes but also outside of time. Having multiple zeno kings in different timelines seems dumb, and being able to pull the king from one timeline to another without his attendants even caring really annoys me.
