Looks awesome, but I'm not digging the female character.
So... not... Halo 6?
For the record, the Androids are more like cyborgs. They are humans augmented by machinery. In Japanese they are called Jinzo-ningen which translates to artificial humans.
Also, Marron, Krillin's girlfriend wasn't Bulma's cousin. She was just a random filler character that resembled Bulma.
Also, the Android and connecting Cell saga are the best arc in all of Dragon Ball.
I have no idea how someone who has seen every major arc can come to this conclusion. Even the Buu arc was better.
Every saga pre Buu Saga was vital and pushed the story forward as well as the character of Goku in some meaningful way:
Saiyan Saga: Expands on lore, introduces conflict on galactic scale, and explains some more of Goku's backstory and why he loves fighting so much.
Namek Saga: introduces the strongest being in the Universe and allows our hero to reach a legendary form and defeat him. Story could have ended here, but it didn't. So how can you make another saga if Freeza is already the strongest being?
Android/Cell Saga: what can threaten Goku after he's literally defeated the strongest being in the universe? Introduce characters that tie back to the original series. Red Ribbon armory hits on some nostalgia while also making a plausibly strong enemy that can challenge the Super Saiyans. Introduce time travel intrigue thus expanding the lore some more. Create a villain who is literally an amalgamation of every enemy and friend our heroes have ever faced and have Goku fail which allows him to sacrifice himself in the service of saving the planet while passing the mantle over to his son. Accepting a permanent death and leaving the earth in the hands of the next generation. Dying a hero.
Buu Saga: undoes everything that made Cell saga touching. Goku pays lip service as to how he can't always be the one to save earth and that Gohan and Gotenks need to be the next generation of protectors, yet both children fail and Goku needs to be ressurected once again to save earth. Gohan goes from being the mightiest being in the universe and more capable then Goku due to his half Saiyan half human biology, to being useless. Buu himself existing contradicts idea of Freeza being strongest being alive. Something that isn't satisfyingly addressed until like 20 years later by Freeza explaining that he knew of Beerus and Buu. But didn't consider them as threats since they were both in hibernation.
@njn: The entirety of the Buu saga is pretty disappointing. That's not to say it doesn't have good moments; young Gohan's antics with Videl is some of my favorite slice of life stuff in the series. But I've said it multiple times before, had the show ended immediately after the conclusion of the Cell games, it would have been far better then where it ultimately ended up.
Super Saiyan is a 50x multiplier on whatever the fighters base power is. For the record Goku as a Super Saiyan on Namek had a power level of a 150,000,000.
Also, no one can do Instant Transmission in the series aside from Goku.
Also, Trunks very specifically says you take the medicine once the symptoms starts.
Freeza is significantly more powerful then King Cold. He is actually the strongest person in that Universe with two exceptions that come way later. And there is a reason why they don't count against Freeza.
When Goku goes Super Saiyan he's actually significantly more powerful. But he wants to humiliate him. Which is why he let's him go full power. Super Saiyan transformation has an element of arrogance and hubris to it.
The reworked art from Kai actually made the original DBZ way worse.
The Xbox One S does not change the resolution of Red Dead. It runs in 720P on the S, but with a more stable 30FPS framerate. The Xbox One X is the only system that plays the back compatibility games in 4K. And they run in native 4K, not upscaled.
