K. Where do I even start with this horseshit?
So, first off, I love how all you Vegebul haters automatically reference the episode where Android 20 blasts Bulma’s plane and Vegeta doesn’t do anything. Yes, that was an absolute dick move on Vegeta’s part. No one is denying that. Actually, the first time I saw that episode I was beyond pissed at Vegeta for not doing anything about it.
But, there is something you forgot to mention about Vegeta, and it’s the reason so many of us love him. Two words:
In the Android saga, he wasn’t nice to Future Trunks at all, once again we are all aware of that. But during the Cell games, when Cell was a prick and killed Future Trunks, Vegeta went fucking ballistic. He felt guilty that his son had shown him nothing but kindness and he treated him like shit in return. This is when Vegeta REALLY begins to take a turn for the better with his character development. And obviously after the fight with Cell is over, his relationship with Bulma vastly improves, and he is a good parent to Trunks; he spends time with him during their training sessions AND just like the second episode of Super showcased, he keeps his promises to his son.
Now, about the Majin incident (I mean, I’m assuming that’s what you’re talking about since you can’t spell for shit). Yes, he gave in to Babidi’s mind control so he could return to the way he was before; he thought at the time being cold and ruthless again was what he wanted. He even told Goku during their fight that Bulma and Trunks meant nothing to him, even though Goku knew he was lying. When it came down to it, Vegeta realized in his final moments what was important to him. He DIED for Bulma and Trunks. They meant so much to him that he was willing to blow himself to smithereens to rid the world of Buu and protect his family. It was a completely selfless act, as Piccolo pointed out shortly after. Yes, Buu still lived, but it was such a pivotal moment because Vegeta had always been so damn selfish, and this was the first time ever he was putting others before himself.
Haha, Bulma is the farthest thing from stupid. Her love is what changed Vegeta slowly but surely over the years. She’s patient with him. She’s forgiving. She accepts him just the way he is, flaws and all. She LOVES him with everything she has. And he loves her just as much, he’s just not a super affectionate guy, especially in public. I believe their best moments are spent in private when it’s just the two of them and he can let his guard down.
And how is Trunks suffering? Am I missing something? Because every time he’s seen with or talking about Vegeta he always has a smile on his face. He idolizes his father and it’s adorable. He was thrilled in the second episode of Super that he got to spend that long of an outing with Vegeta, and he was THANKFUL towards Vegeta for it, too.
Also, I just want to say one more little thing. To all the people out there who hate on Vegebul and say Vegeta looks miserable all the time and that he ‘just feels obligated to stay with Bulma and Trunks’, Vegeta is not an outwardly happy, jovial guy. He doesn’t walk around with a smile on his face at all times. That’s not his personality. He is rough around the edges, and even as his character develops, he still isn’t the happiest looking person, though by the end of Z he appears to be much more relaxed. And also do you REALLY think Vegeta stays with his family out of obligation? I mean, really? Vegeta does NOT do anything he doesn’t want to do. If he really wanted to leave and not be a family man, he would ditch Earth altogether and go somewhere else. He stays with his family because he LOVES them. THAT is why he stays. I can’t believe I even have to defend him on that.
Well, anon, I answered you this time. Hope you enjoyed my response as you lurk on my blog :D
