    It’s a story about a boy that.

    A simple boy that was sheltered from the world. Poor. Always hungry and never got any social cues.

    He never spoke to people, he never tried. Never felt like he needed to. But whenever the world ever threw anything at him. Be it big like a villain or small he had heart. Will. Strength. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. And yes. Even socially.

    He holds a strength that... most people can’t hold. One could say his naivéte and lack of understanding was charming. To... some people at least.

    One could say he... has a lot in his circumstances. Dragonballs. Kids that love him. A wife. People to compete with him anything he is remotely good at. And whenever he is not and has some circumstances in his favor, one could. Say that... no matter what he stuck to his craft and what he was. He was Goku.

    Now what would Goku do... If you were to take away the Dragonballs, and his family (if they even could care in the first place), keep his hard-headed determination, but... his lack of social understanding and that he was confronted with a world which simply just throws too many enemies and problems with him at once especially ones that are... out of his range of understanding.

    Simple. He’d try harder. So hard that he would dedicate his life to understanding something, if he simply just trained alone, in any way. By himself. Maybe even with books or something else he could find nearly anywhere if he couldn’t experience it himself.

    He’d keep his burning desire and even gain some insight. But does he really. Truly. Get it?

    It’s almost like... that strength may be hollower than he thinks. But he will keep pushing on no matter what to prove his values and will no matter how stupid he looked in the grand scheme of things he’d just keep pushing on...

    No matter how difficult. It was for him to understand.


    Even when confronted with Death. He still holds more strength within him.


    Maybe he will avoid death with the Dragonballs and learn from his mistake...

    Dude take a break

    You act like no one has watched the show before and you try to tell us who goku is.

    You're worse than youtubers who make shitty youtube videos like

    "Ssbe explained"

    "UI explained"

    "Hakaishin Toppo explained"


    Tell us more about chichi in your next thread

    DB Minus is the perfect example of why Toriyama should just strop writing. The biggest crime in Minus is that he made Goku a special snowflake. His parents are special, even by Saiyan standards considering they loved him so much that they sent him to a weak planet to protect him, and he ends up following in their footsteps and likewise becomes a kind-hearted Saiyan who protects his loved ones. But that completely goes against the original manga. Goku was a forgotten and unloved Saiyan deemed so weak by his fellow Saiyans, and by his own parents, that he got sent to an extremely weak planet to wipe it out, but after suffering from amnesia and through Grandpa Gohan's influence, Goku becomes a kind-hearted boy and ironically via hard work and a bit of luck, he becomes the planet's strongest protector, defying the will of the family that never cared for him to begin with. Toriyama is a hack.

    Toriyama was always a hack more conerned about comedy than a good story. Thank his editor for the masterpiece that is Dragon Ball Z. You could see just how childish his writing really was with BoG and Yo! Son Goku and his friends return. That’s Toriyama not held on by a leash by editors. Childish, not very funny and can’t tell a story to save his life.
