Well I will make this clear, I am a fan of dragonball, my brother and I both where enthralled in the show when it aired on toonami back when we where still in school. I remember the times I did the kamehameha many times as a child and wished I could fly thought the sky like they do. So many days when I wanted to get home to see the new episode of dragonball Z… Believe me when I curse in frustation that I don’t have TV right now but I have finally a reason (and a very good one in my view) to get one again.
For those that haven’t watched the show when you grew up, or your parents didn’t have the channel (or where sticks in the mud). I will give you a rundown please skip this if you want to watch it yourself, Goku the main character is grown up and married to chichi have a sun called gohan named after his adported grandfather. He heads over to master roshi’s home to introduce gohan to goku’s friends from the dragonball series. Then plot gets crazy as Goku’s long lost brother raddits comes to check up on Goku which should have destoried the human species off earth for as his people are mercs for hire to take over the world… well used to be since their people’s planet and most of their species where killed by friza which is a evil overlord of space and sent many civilations to ruin and most of the time hired sayians to do his dirty work (though watching the show english dub you get confused if he is a “he”) well after raddits is killed, Goku also dies… now the warriors of earth must train for the sayians that where also coming to earth to find out what the dragonballs are…. and if what they heard is true wish for immortalty…. yadda yadda and this is just season 1… which the show isn’t broken into seasons they are broken into sagas which vary in size.
Now, I bet I made it clear how much of a fan I am of this show. Who wouldn’t be able to blow up a planet with their own body has a weapon to do it! yet that be horrible and life and such but still ENERGY CANNON BY HAND TO BLOW UP YOUR PLACE shenanigans… Even darth vadar wasn’t as cool as half of the villians in this show. Hell just one sayian could destory Jedi and sith combined. Oh you have a droid army? thats cute. Would be the responce from Vegeta… I need to see if there is a starwars dragonball z crossover!
and there you go… Vegeta is only using a gun to give him a challange… you’ll know it… then he will get sick of it and blow up the deathstar. Another “Oh you can blow up planets? thats cute” line for you… man I am generating meme’s like no tomorrow…. Wait what was I typing about again? oh ya the DBZ Kai lineup coming to toonami. WOOT!
I am excited, maybe I will get my roommates to get cartoon network/adult swim to we can swim in nostaglia again. You can’t believe the level of awesome I am going to miss.
