so not only does the lookout have the hyperbolic time chamber, it has a fucking time travel room

Show thread

good to know the crane hermit and roshi have been enemies this whole time

Show thread

is it just me or does mutaito's dojo look a lot like the tenkaichi budokai place?

Show thread

goku's so strong they have to make him fight himself for an interesting fight during a stretch of episodes with little fighting

Show thread

ok, but that fight was actually badass. it's cool to see goku getting stronger on the loookout. next time: more shenanigans

Show thread

PLEX SERVER: WORKING
GOKU: STILL A KID
DICK: WHERE IT BELONGS

Show thread

remember: when the creepy weird kid has a premonition about something terrible happening: it's probably nothing :)

Show thread

thankfully it just seems like filler, but goku playing tag with popo is cool

Show thread

holy shit, the volcano that this village built their whole religion around is erupting

Show thread

lmao, i quit trying to follow along with the japanese audio being so far behind the show, but i still have the japanese subs on over the dub, and tien's motivation for saving the town is completely different

Show thread

in the japanese version tien wants to save the town because if he can't even redirect the flow of the lava, how does he think he can beat goku, while in the dub he's just a nice guy :)

Show thread

seems like tien wanting to beat goku in a fight is a much better reflection of his current state then him immediately being a cool dude but what do i know

Show thread

dragon ball is a much better show when everyone is motivated by beating each others ass at first

Show thread

i think by omitting the drive to beat a more powerful opponent from certain characters really helps undersell their transformation into good people: this is literally the core of vegeta's character and central to why so many people love him. he's not softened by goku because goku's just that good a dude: by wanting to surpass goku he eventually learns that part of what makes goku so strong is the way he interacts with the world around him and treats other people, and so by learning from that vegeta also becomes a better person in trying to surpass goku

Show thread

to put it in a more pithy way: vegeta's desire to surpass goku is what makes vegeta a better dad than goku

Show thread

yeah good ideas guys, blast the magma with energy beams. works like a charm

Show thread

that was a nice conclusion to see them all combine their strength to beat the magma like that

Show thread

i'm actually really excited for this. it's the last arc of dragon ball so it's bound to be super good and tie up all the loose ends so far. hoping for a satisfying conclusion to a fuckin great show

Show thread

strap in, its the hottest tournament arc yet. we got:
piccolo
tenshinhan
adult goku
and yamcha

Show thread

it's been three years since king piccolo died, and we haven't really seen much of goku and pals since leaving them in their training just after piccolo died. so it'll be cool to see how everyone's grown up

Show thread

the title cards for the budokai episodes are always so badass. i love it

Show thread

seeing goku all grown up for the first time is incredible. my beautiful baby boy 😭

Show thread

damn, the first appearance of grown up piccolo is terrifying

Show thread

goku vs tenshinhan rematch is gonna be awesome. same with goku vs piccolo

Show thread

"we were just talking about how strong [piccolo] looks!" yeah good lie tenshinhan

Show thread

damn poor chi chi, getting forgotten by her future husband

Show thread

having chaozu there to fix the numbers is a really great writing decision. easy explanation as to why everyone is in different blocks

Show thread
Follow

poor chapa-o. he's about to get his ass beat

so the main tournament participants after the qualifier will probably be: goku, tenshinhan, piccolo, tao, yajirobe, and chi chi. thats my guess

Show thread

this episode is called the chosen eight, so we'll see if my predictions come true

Show thread

goku, ten, krillin, yamcha, piccolo, tao pai pai, chi chi, and... some rando??? really thought yajirobe couldamade it

Show thread

oh my god, these matchups are gonna be so good
tao vs tenshinhan
goku vs chi chi
krillin vs piccolo
and that random guy vs yamcha

Show thread

i hope we get yamcha vs piccolo. it would be a shame for him to get eliminated in the first round

Show thread

krillin is a short king but unfortunately there's no way he's winning against piccolo

Show thread

"What are they doing" why, oolong, they're saving on the animation budget

Show thread

i wonder how tenshinhan's arc is going to develop as the tournament goes on tho. that seemed like a really unsatisfying conclusion to all the crane hermit stuff

Show thread

also chi chi could absolutely hand ass to people, god damn

Bulma *nursing baby Trunks* I'm well aware.
