I don’t think Dragon Ball Z will ever get a super saiyan transformation as effectively breath-taking as it was for Gohan.
Ever since Cell saga ended, Dragon Ball Z as a genre ended up throwing around different forms of super saiyan left and right as if it were nothing. I’ve been starting to notice there hasn’t even been much achievement in turning super saiayn too. It was a struggle for Future Trunks, Gohan, and even Vegeta.
Turning super saiyan was an achievement that came out of raw emotion.
When Gohan managed to reach ssj2 you could feel your heart stop as he stood there with tears flowing out of his eyes and the stares he got from everyone, even Cell, who knew this child had reached something higher than just super saiyan.
What was even better was Gohan was always a sweet kid who showed a lot of power for his age. Not only did we finally see what was hinted since the start in action, we could see it change him.
It was like he was an entirely different person.
He was malicious, he wanted to torture Cell and this is Gohan.
Watching this kid change and fucking kick ass was exciting. It was like this whole side of him that you know if it comes out the person who messed with him is going to be dead.
I love the series to death but it’s lost a lot of excitement since it caved in to particular fan desires and struggles to keep itself afloat among that…I don’t think it’ll ever reach that peak it had during the Cell saga.
But man, the artistic genius that went into the creation of this powerful alter ego was magnificent. I still get goosebumps watching the whole transformation and fight all over again.
Ok this one has an AU-ish side to it so the idea is that once you are in love with someone you can give them your heart and if it turns out they love you too you can make half of your hearts fuse together and then BAM your other half is always there with you . And so at the beginning of the thing Gray is refusing to fuse their hearts together because he is being secure . Everyone have beautiful hearts and Gray’s is so ugly and black and Natsu deserves better
I want a video game where the protagonist’s brother is kidnapped and she has to go through all these worlds to try and rescue him but at the end it turns out he wasn’t kidnapped after all and the villain is actually his boyfriend and they eloped and she’s all like I WENT THROUGH 32 WORLDS TRYING TO FIND YOU, HOW DARE YOU NOT BE KIDNAPPED.
