Why did Gohan's character go downhill so fast?
>>
More like Gayhan

More like Gogay

Toriyama wanted to make gohan the new MC but got cold feet partway through
>>
>>160904759
And the series never recovered.
>>
>>160904759
Fact.

Too bad all of the fans are faggots and couldnt let the story progress without the fighting autist.
>>
>>160904759
it was fine until he turned him into a fucking loser.

I formally accept any and all concessions.

>>160909041
And the thread goes up in flames already.

>>160908406
Great Saiyanman was not the way to go about making Gohan the MC.
>>
Are you freaking kidding me!

>>160908406
>story progress
Story ended with explosion of Namek. Everything after that is just fanservice.

>cold feet
yes its the manga-kas fault, thats how the manga industry work, the authors are in full control of their work.

editors made him do it because of gokufags. thats a fact, toriyama made the statement in the dragon ball dictionnary.

making gohan the mc was rejected multple times, with goku coming back to save the day. gohan vs the saiyans? goku gets revived. gohan vs frieza? nope gotta have goku be the super saiyan. gohan vs cell? cant have him win by himself, need goku to sacrifice himself and have his spirit help gohan after that.

for the buu saga there was efforts for either goten and trunks/gotenks or gohan, but that didnt work either gotta have goku come back by bringing back a character thats been irrelevant since forever.

Goku in Z felt like a cheap superman copy, dunno why he's beloved so much in Japan. Gohan was always the better character until he went loser.

Reminder that Chi Chi literally had to bring up two boys, by herself with whatever little money she had, when Goku died.

>>160910139
>cheap superman copy
hardly, that's relatively Saitama
Goku's closer to a Bruce Lee on a whole lot of steroids, minus the cannabis
>>
because Jap faggots wanted it to be all about Goku no matter what even though Toriyama was setting up for Gohan to replace Goku ever since he was introduced.
>>
>>160910139

Monkey King + Superman + Bruce Lee = Goku
>>
>>160902902
The beginning of the Buu saga was supposed to be Gohan taking over, Sayaman and all, but something happened and Goku had to comeback

In the end of DBZ Goku says it's Pan who has the most guts in their house, maybe it was joke or Goku saying he was disappointed with Gohan and Goten for not training as much as they should. The reason Goku becomes so excited with Uub is to have someone to succeed him.
>>
>>160902902
Toriyama and then DBS
>>
>>160908406
Fuck off. Dragon Ball was to end after the pilaf saga. It was and always will be about Goku. Deal with it fags.
>>
>>160904759
what a bum
>>
The biggest mistake was the Great Saiyaman stuff being the introduction to Gohan taking the role of the protagonist.

Whether or not writers intend for it, readers often self insert as the main character, especially in stories aimed at kids, like shonen action manga.

So what happens when you replace the cool hero Goku with a bumbling high school student who's basically a Peter Parker parody without the quips and down on his luck relatability?

If Toriyama was serious about Gohan as the MC, he should have transitioned into the History of Trunk Gohan in terms of seriousness and personality. He'd already gone through a ton of shit, beat Cell, and now had the job of defending Earth on his shoulders. Instead, the guy actually /regressed./
