I started watching at the beginning of the series, but there was no chance of me missing an episode of the Namek/Frieza saga.

i always hated how Piccolo was never stronger


Piccolo had his moments. The Piccolo and Android 17 fight is one of, if not my favorite fight in the entire show. His transformation after fusing with Kami was awesome. Especially when he met Imperfect Cell. "The Piccolo you know is gone. I am The Namek." Then his entrance into the fight against Frieza's 3rd form. Piccolo

re: The Official Dragonball Discussion.


yeah my only knock on the show is just how far and above being a saiyan was. all supporting characters became worthless very fast. i wish there were other people that rivaled Goku and Vegeta for a longer period of time.

Oh yeah. I had too much invested to not get to see Goku finally go Super Saiyan and finish off frieza.

This part that is kind of a tribute to that idea in DBZ abridged cracks me up:

quote:

Narrator: Meanwhile, back at the ranch.
Bulma: Remember when we used to do stuff? You know? Be out there with them? And help?
*They all agree*
Oolong: And remember the Red Ribbon Army?
*They all remember*
Roshi: And what about King Piccolo?
* They all remember*
Bulma: Good times. Good times… Whatever happened to Launch?
(There is silence)
Roshi: Who?

Well the reason for that is simple. The Saiyans are the premiere warrior race. Humans from Earth keeping up wouldn't make sense. Piccolo, maybe. The Namekian race would have to have other forms to keep pace with the Saiyans IMO.

I don't know if this has been discussed here, but if anybody is looking for a way to watch DBZ without buying the episodes or site hopping to find them online you can go to the store app for widows 8 and search for "Anime Dragon Ball Z full" and download the free app. They have all episodes of every saga streaming. Just started my rewatch yesterday

Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama has a couple Q&A's published in Japan today. There's a "Twel-Buu Mysteries" in Saikyo Jump, and there's bonus material in volumes 4-6 of the new color editions of the Cell arc. What's really grabbed the attention of Japanese fans is that he's revealed the names of Androids No. 17 and 18. 

 

No. 17 is Lapis and No. 18 is Lazuli.

 

Toriyama also revealed that after the Cell arc No. 17 becomes a park ranger at a nature preserve. He's well suited to the work and shows no mercy to poachers! In this happy ending, he's well paid and married to a zoologist with two adopted children.

yeah i mean i get the WHY. but all the show had to do was introduce other races or somehow allow humans to "unlock" power and gain strength. it just really made the show very one dimensional when no other character mattered. i think thats why the cell saga was the best. almost all still had roles to play. hell, tien had a great fight against imperfect cell. its just so uninteresting when only saiyans can do anything at all.

I disagree that humans shouldve been able to step up. After all, their roll was cannon fodder to piss off the sayains enough that they'd snap. But Piccolo really shouldve been more powerful. Also he was a giant green lizard alien demon descendant kami fused badass who trained harder than anyone else. I really wish they had just given him some kind of 2nd form battle transformation that allowed him to keep up with the sayains.

And where the hell is Pikkon's people? They could've made for an interesting ally. Or shite just use the dragon balls to wish pikkon alive and on earth.

Canon or not, Pikkon is a very intriguing character. I'd love any kind of side story revealing a little history of him, and his race.
