Seriously, this is kind of a huge part of who he is as a character, and it always has been. I love that he’s training again so he can be strong enough to protect his loved ones and the planet, but I equally love the fact that he’s choosing not to participate in the tournament in order to go to a conference. Because that’s staying true to his character.
If we’re going to talk about Toriyama committing character assassination against one of his characters, let’s talk about Videl. Yeah, she’s not fighting because baby, and that’s fine. But where’s her fiery personality? Where is ANY personality?
