I started reading the manga again (starting from book 16 when the battles are more crucial and threatening). So nostalgic~♥! ↓
This whole entry is going to be about Dragon Ball so — I apologize to those who aren’t fond of it and might find this boring. (Cries) <;___;>
Baa.. <.___.>lll Moving on…
I remember I used to read Dragon Ball during my primary school days. And now that I think about it — Dragon Ball is indeed a classic anime/manga that will never die out throughout time.
Dragon Ball has been around since 1984 and until today — it is still the most talk and recognize anime that no one will ever miss out. (you have to be an ignorant loser to dismiss Dragon Ball!)
Even though new anime and manga seems to be beat Dragon Ball in perspective of sound effects and drawings — Somehow, when it comes to story line, I personally feel that Dragon Ball’s plot is more deep and most importantly — Original.
Plus, the characters are great. They show development throughout time. Take the main character Son Goku for an example.
He practically grew up in the series and showed major improvement in his martial arts. Although the whole destroying the solar system may sound ridiculous but face it — The story is great. The characters are cool and the humor tickles the shit out of your bones.
Now when I read Bleach, I’m like — What the fuck is Bankai? (Laughs)
Anyway — Let’s talk about… Who are your favorite characters and which is your favorite saga? <^v^>/
Baa~ There are so many fantastic and funny characters. But for me — My favorites are:
Cyborg 18 and Cyborg 17 – Because they are the only villains that are not alienated. (Laughs) Also, I find these cold blooded siblings cute when they act together. No.17 is so boyish and he likes cars (I think he’s into guns too) while No.18 is all about clothes and fashion. Seriously, Kuririn is damn lucky to have No.18 as his wife.. Although she orders him around. <^-^>lll Pretty girls are difficult, huh?
* Awesome fanart of No.18
Then again — Don’t you think No.18 is way too powerful than Kuririn? No wonder he dare not say no to her. (Laughs)
As for No.17, I’m kinda sad that he returned as a bad guy in Dragon Ball GT and that he was destroyed by Goku and No.18. (Cries) Why….. <;__;>
I prefer the normal C17 ↑ than the Super 17. Super 17 looks … scary and freaky.. <=__=>lll
Vegeta -(Laughs) The bad ass in the group. Initially, he appeared as a villain and was a serious threat to the Z group. This son of a B is tough to kill as he keeps getting up after numerous blows by Gohan, Goku, Kuririn, Piccolo and even Yazirobe.
A terrifying character indeed but later, he forcefully team up with Goku and the rest in order to defeat Frieza who was his superior which he hated and wished to rebel against. After defeating Frieza and with no where else to go, he stayed on Earth and lived with Bulma and her family.
Warning: Marry a Saiyan ONLY if you can afford to feed his bottomless stomach!
In the manga, there was no emphasis on how Vegeta and Bulma got together in a relationship. However, the development is shown in the anime.
For those who have yet to see how Vegeta gets alone with Bulma, please watch the video below. ↓
At first, I have no blady idea how in tarnation these 2 could end up together but after I discovered this video on Youtube — I’m like Wow~~! I didn’t know Vegeta could be that lenient to Bulma! (Laughs)
They really make a good pairing. <^-^>/
Plus, he makes a good father after all. The video beneath shows a funny moment he had with his daughter, Bra. ↓
Well… I like the fact that Vegeta has this bad ass and violent attitude but somehow he was able to acknowledge his defeat to Goku and in the crucial battle with Majin Buu, he sacrificed himself and later he also contributed to save the world which he once despised.
Another fact about Vegeta that should never be missed out is his intelligence. He came up with brilliant ideas, plans and strategies to help everyone. I wanna praise Vegeta more but I have to move on to my next favorite character… Piccolo! ↓
Piccolo – From a villain to a faithful team mate of the Z fighters. At first his ambition was to kill Goku and then take over the world. This ambition was brought forward to him from the Old King Piccolo. However, the young Piccolo did not inherit too much evil from his father. He started fighting along Goku’s side after he confronted Radietz, Goku’s brother.
Fearing that Radietz was stronger than Goku and himself, he decided that he needs to team up with Goku to eliminate Radietz in order to avoid interference with Piccolo’s ambitions. After winning the battle with Radietz at the cost of Goku’s life, he was informed that 2 more Saiyans who are more powerful than Radietz will be arriving Earth in 1 year’s time, Piccolo decided that he shall train Son Gohan, the first son of Goku for he sees a potential in him.
Piccolo them built a father-like relationship with Gohan and became unexpectedly attached to Gohan to the point he stood in the way of Nappa’s fire ball attack in order to save him. In the manga book 18 page 38, he mentioned that Gohan received the same fate as himself, who was forced to survive in the wilderness alone. Gohan on the other hand, regards a very high respect to Piccolo that on some occasions, he wears Piccolo’s uniform.
Piccolo is one of the strongest characters among the Z group and even though later on he was unable to battle the stronger opponents — he is the wisest character.
This could be due to his fusion with Kami-sama, his origin form. Piccolo used to be a very serious and an individual with no sense of humor. (He doesn’t even know what love is all about) But later on, he starts having gag moments even though not at his will.
Especially when he has to deal with Gotenks. (Fusion of Trunks and Son Goten)
Last but not least — ↓
Trunks ~♥ -(Laughs) Guess what — Now only I learned that the name ‘Trunks’ was actually directed to ‘swimming underwear’. All this while I thought it was a tree trunk. (Laughs nervously)The Briefs family — Why didn’t I realize that sooner!? <OAO>
Anyway — Trunks is cool. I like Mirai (Future) Trunks more though. The present Trunks is also cute and his friendship with Goten is really funny.
Mirai Trunks ↑
Mirai Trunks suffered a tragic life which involve all the Z characters death leaving him the only warrior left to fight for man kind against no.17 and no.18. Trunks traveled via time machine built by his mother, Bulma in order to prevent the death of the Z group and to save Goku’s life from heart attack by supplying him a medicine that was made by Bulma. Also, he wishes to meet his father for the first time and save him from death.
However, tragically — he discovered that his presence in the current time will only create a new time line and change the order of happenings. Also, the changes he make in that time will not affect his own time zone. So unable to reverse the damage and destruction caused by No.17 and No.18, he then stayed back to fight against No.17, No.18 and Cell because he does not want the current time zone to suffer the same fate as his.
After witnessing the defeat of No.17, No.18 and Cell, he returns to his time zone and easily kills No.17 and No.18. Apparently, the No.17 and No.18 in his time is more vicious and wicked than the ones in the other time. In fact, No.17 and No.18 is the past were revived and continued living in harmony.
Ok.. These are my most favorite characters. As for sagas, After Piccolo’s saga and onwards are my favorites because the battles become tougher and no longer fighting against earthlings like R&R (Red Ribbon) Yamcha, Jackie Chun (Master Roshi) and Tien Shin Han. (Laughs)
Therefore, what’s your favorite Dragon Ball character and which saga do you like? <^.^>v
As a finale, here are some funny *pictures I found. ↓
