    Yeah Frost is a good one. I suppose Frieza too.

    His character was awesome but he didn't do much performance wise.

    Gohan should've gotten A17's role

    Either him or Piccolo.


    Piccolo should have fused with uni 7 nameks and destroyed the foddertroopers along those feminazi's from uni 2

    I'm confused on why people are saying Freeza, even people who did like the arc at all said he was dope, and every scene he was in was awesome.

    If you mean powerwise, He helped against almost everybody starting with the Aniraza episode and was helping way before that, and saved his teammates many times.

    I don't think 17 is fanboy treatment tho. Toriyama himself went on deciding he'd win. :catshrug

    You're right.
    Not sure if Toyo will go as it happened in the anime or he will take a different path.

    At this point anything is possible tbh.

    Toyo is a piece of shit, he won't be able to write anything original. It will either be a copy of the anime ending or he will "borrow" another ending.

    I don't get it.
    Why does the fanbase hate him so much? Also, its not like he has not tried different stuff in the manga.

    Frankly I don't like how he can't form a original thought in his head, occasionally referencing older material is cool, I loved his bit with Goku and Vegeta doing their classic standoff poses in the time chamber, but its been a constant reusing of old Dragon Ball panels, not even iconic ones, just random rips. There was even a Zarbon rip off, not even the punch through gut one, lets not talk about the reusing of fancomic panels and idea's. I dislike how he treats the antagonist and his general story telling. I actually kind of like his art though, not all of it.

    I don't hold mangaka to the same standards as to anime staff, anime is a much bigger working project and requires much more time to produce, and even I don't like anime that throw constant references, it just seems lazy.

    Everyone who's got a problem with 17's performance in the ToP and say he received fanboy treatment forget that it's all on Toriyama. It's been stated numerous times how 17's performance was a result of Toriyama's wishes.

    He might've been way stronger than he was supposed to, but he did an amazing job. All of his scenes were entertaining and he's progressed immensely as a character since the Z days. He's also the best team player on the U7 team.

    The only problem I have is how they cheapened his sacrifice and basically just had him pop up like "It's just a prank, bro. I didn't kill myself, lol!".

    It was Toriyama who decided 17's role and since he went from nothing to what he did, fanboy treatment is a good description as he seemed to suddenly go crazy about him. It also describes Toei as the way they presented him is the way a fanboy would. Every line he said they made him look good and the same for every single fight he had. There is also stuff in the anime that will not be in the manga and not in the script so Toei have made him look better. Toei do all non main plot things which is most if the dialogue and fight choreography.

    They did this as 17 was never popular and they tried their hardest to make him popular. It is similar to characters like Kale and Ribrianne who were made to look good in their first appearence and better than they actually are so people would like them.

    Tien's treatment is the simply just the complete opposite of 17's and Toei adding episode 89 and 90 is proof of the hate treatment.

    It is because he wants to see Goku and Vegeta look as good as possible and he will adapt the script to make this happen.
