A few cute gochi figures from around♥
A few cute gochi figures from around♥
I can’t believe I’ve to write a defense for Goku! I don’t know why most of the western fans are so happy bashing him for every single reason and coming up with more stupid reasons everytime!!
Most of them are not even familiar with the show itself and have never read the manga. Like some of them in fanfiction.net declared dragonball is NOT canon but Dbz is!!? Just because Funimation aired the later part first there >.>;;
Secondly, I would blame the Funimation’s dub is very poor. Infact, most old dubs are bad- Sailor moon, Card captor(heard from other fans).
A dub is supposed to translate a language to another for other language viewers, not making up most of the lines and dumbing up with poor characterizations. There are too many unnecessary changes from lines to character personality to character age. Eg. Gohan’s age is increased because Piccolo giving black eyes to a 4 yr old kid is abusive than a 5 yr old kid! xD Then again 16 year old Gohan’s age in Buu saga was changed to 18. Also, watch the anime in Japanese with English subtitles since its original and closer to the Japanese manga. Or just check these sites-
Goku is NOT a stupid,brain damaged idiot!!
At first part of the Dragonball manga and anime, Goku is shown to be naïve when it came to certain things like custom, traditions and sometimes basic things too but that was because no one had ever taken the time to teach him such things. His grandpa died when he was very young and had only taught him things that were necessary for his survival in the forest. But one could see the change and his maturity after his stay with Kami and most, after the 5 years gap after his wedding. And well, ALL the fighters (saiyans, humans and even a certain namek) make stupid decisions in android-cell saga (I would blame the mangaka for this.. because he himself admitted he was really confused and disinterested while making it).
He was like an unanimous leader of the Z team… since a 12 yr old kid till becoming a grandpa!
Goku has no feelings and doesn’t love his family!! Please e.e
Goku has feelings , especially more for his family! He has them on his mind even on the most desperate and dangerous situations (be it in so-called filler episodes and even in canon!). Few egs. Here-
When Goku learned for the first time that it was he who had killed his Grandpa…
Now, at one time… Goku’s body was stolen and was left behind in a dying alien body, he was worried about helping his son and friends and getting back to earth safely. But his main worry was how will his wife react to his ugly new alien body!! (I won’t blame Chi-Chi if she refuse to sleep with Ginyu-Goku!!) xDD
And when there was just 10 seconds left for Cell to blow up the earth and everyone was again looking up to Goku to save the day… and again when Buu was wrecking havoc and his time on earth was up (resisting Buu and teaching Fusion) even under all the terrible conditions and pressures, and near his death, he praised his child, remembered his wife and asked to take care of her… It’s the same thing that Vegeta did too but Goku is the only one who gets all the shitty names- Negro dad, King of Absentee fathers,blah blah…
He loves his family and then comes his friends and then the world. Its CANON.
Goku abandons his family and keeps dying or running to stay away from his family.(Bullshit. Period.)
The 1st time he died, he died protecting Gohan and then Kami send him to King Kai for special training that took the whole year! (seriously, do these bashers even watch or read the manga or they just love bashing! :/)
Secondly, he was presumed dead. At first, he repeatedly wanted to come home just after defeating Freeza. But then he didn’t want to come home because he wanted to learn the Instant Transmission and to gain control of his new super saiyan powers, whose power could make him borderline crazy.
Thirdly, Goku actually SACRIFIED AND STAYS DEAD because he FELT THAT HIM BEING ALIVE JUST ATTRACTED EVIL AND THUS, A THREAT TO HIS FAMILY!! In the original manga, he said these and wanted to keep his family and earth safe. He even knew that Chichi and Gohan would be the ones who would be hurt the most due to his decision…(read the manga NOT fanfics or fan edits or just watch it in subtitles!)
Fourth, Goku left with Uub selfishly for training. (Again, crap)
He went to train Uub so he could he could be the next protector of earth and thus Goku can retire from the burden. Toriyama knew he had hastily finished the Buu saga, especially the ending. Thus, after a decade, he wrote a new ending for the series!! (That’s, really something from a guy who never rechecks his work.)
And please, don’t say Goku left them for 10 years with no contact with his family cuz GT IS NOT CANON.
And the comparision thing, Vegeta is the best dad and loves his family more then Goku because he always stays with them. The truth is Vegeta was a terrible dad in Android-Cell saga to mirai Trunks but changed when he saw him die. In the Android part after the 3 years gap, Bulma said that Vegeta didn’t stay in Capsules corp and doesn’t know where he was. In Buu saga, Vegeta is still obsessed with training and now with another mission- making Trunks stronger than Gohan… which Gohan found very scary xDD
Again, in the new movie (which is also co-authored by Toriyama), Bulma complains about both the saiyans obsession with training.
Vegeta is still in his favorite room- Gravity Room even on his wife’s b’day party, rudely argues with his wife in front of her friends…but that doesn’t mean he hates his family. He loves them.
Same with Goku, his saiyan side is obsessed with fighting… but he cares his wife and kids deeply (Though most western fans would remain blind in case of Goku :/ )
Goku cares for his family and loves them. Every time he was absent from his family HE HAD A PERFECTLY GOOD REASON TO DO SO.
Goku doesn’t love Chichi and Chichi loves Vegeta, Picollo,etc. (Again, BS!!!)
Just look at how happy she was to meet him after 7 years!
One main reason why English fans think Chichi doesn’t love Goku is because Funimation’s stupid lines that makes her screech and mad ALL the time with Goku and the post Buu part where they made her explicitly interested in Vegeta and wants to exchange husbands. While in the original, this BS NEVER HAPPENED AND SHE IS ALWAYS PROTECTIVE WITH HER HUSBAND!!
In Goku’s case, just because he wanted to send naked photos of Bulma to an old pervert God to save the world instead of his own wife’s and also lying that Chichi is flat chested, so as not to show any dirty photos of her… many western fans think Goku hates Chichi and loves Bulma!?
Hell, he just wanted to throw any women at the Old Kai’s face to save earth! He first wanted to send Videl before Gohan intervened and then changed to Bulma. And I don’t get it.. why is it so hard for most of them to believe that Goku was lying about Chicih’s breasts to old Kai’s?! He keeps on telling little lies throughout the series! For eg. He tells Vegeta that only two people can train together in time chamber and not alone, so that mirai Trunks can get some time and train with his dad too. But he trained there alone when he was a kid and later Picollo, Trunks and Vegeta trains alone in the room too!
Goku even earns and saves money for his family and no males in the Z warrior has a proper job, excluding Gohan.
Goku also got money for his family by being a farmer and also doing odd jobs ( In an old interview of the Toei and Bird staff, some of them said that Goku and Krillin are self employed). Back then, in some regions and communities in Asia.. a 9 to 5 o’ clock job, like a govt job , etc is greatly preferred and for some reason, those who’re self employed are not readily taken as stable earner. Though this kind of perspectives have changed after all these years. There are still a few (mostly old people) who thinks that.
There, I’m done. Goku always loves his family and his family loves him.
And his friends and rivals respect him back.

*♥* Goku x Chi-Chi *♥*“He loved her in a subtle kind of way. It wasn’t the kind of love you see in movies, with swelling music and giant gestures and running through the streets to catch a departing train. It wasn’t the kind of love that Byron or Shakespeare wrote about, with flowery language and hyperbole and iambic pentameter. It was still and deep, like water that you might mistake for shallow if you just watched the surface. It was entirely his, not dependent on her own feelings for him, and it would still be there whether she, or him, or everyone else on the world disappeared. It was a subtle kind of love, but it was true.” —Jake Christie, Small Stories.
Chi Chi training Goten and making him almost match his strength with Trunks, who had been training in gravity room by Vegeta… is totally BADASS!!! It would have been wonderful to see when Goku was sparing and giving his secret tips to Chi Chi ♥
Chi Chi: COUNTER, Goten! Don’t just dodge my attacks.
♥♥ OMG BABY GOTEN WANTS A KISS TOO ♥♥ why is he so adorable :3
♥ ♥ Cute mommy Chichi and little Goten pics~ ♥ ♥ *adorbs*
I do not know the source of this. You’ve probably already seen it.
"Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t gut you where you stand, wench?"
Chi-Chi had her hands raised above her head, brows creased in growing annoyance as a smile spread across her lips. “I don’t think you’d like my answer,” she replied, peeking over her shoulder to gain a better look at her captor. It was the guy she knocked out earlier on her way to the camp’s vault. They’d engaged in a fight, though Chi-Chi liked to think it was more of him surrendering than anything else, and it ended with her stealing his keys. The young hothead wasn’t even able to land a single blow before she knocked him out with a clap of her elbows. How in Kami’s name had he gotten to her after a hit like that, she’d never know. Perhaps she should’ve given him a little more credit where his endurance was concerned.
"Careful," he breathed into her neck, pressing his sword into her back. Chi-Chi flinched, breath hitching before a growl escaped her throat. "You’re one move away from getting cut down. Now, state your name and purpose, and I just might let you go." Chi-Chi refused to shudder as she felt his grimy fingers dance against her exposed skin before they gradually rested on the knot of her bra.
"If I told ya, I’d have to kill ya," Chi-Chi answered, turning to face forward and wanting so desperately to deliver another harsh blow to his head. Anything to get his slimy little paws off of her.
While normally, Chi-Chi wouldn’t think of stepping two feet outside of her village, she hadn’t had a choice. Her husband, who she never ventured anywhere without, was nowhere to be found. She could’ve easily awaited his arrival, but the village chief, a cantankerous old man whose hands were overused and abused, sent her ahead anyway. He believed that she could handle the job, as her skill set was second to none amongst the female villagers of Kamehameha. She didn’t argue with him when it came to that, but she’d only wished that he’d told her about this place beforehand… Maybe this was his revenge for her striking him in the nose for feeling her up. She only hoped that it wasn’t, as this boy was five seconds away from ending up like him if he didn’t remove his hands from her skin.
"Rest assured, wench. You won’t be killin’ anybody. Not as long as I’m around. Now turn around. I think you have somethin’ that belongs to me."
Suddenly, Chi-Chi noticed a strange gleam in the shadows of the base’s camp, and a grin crossed her lips almost immediately. Finally, she thought, peeking over her shoulder once more. Took ya long enough, blockhead.
"Whatever it is you’re lookin’ for, I ain’t got it," Chi-Chi replied, turning to meet her captor head on with a swift turn. She cringed when the sword scratched her back, but otherwise she smiled, arms still raised above her head.
"I’m sure you don’t, but it wouldn’t hurt to check, now would it?" the man asked, pressing his sword into her neck as his eyes soaked in the supple flesh of her bosom. "Don’t worry. I won’t hurt ya… that much."
"Oh, I’m not the one who’s worried," she said testily. "You, on the other hand, should be. My husband don’t take too kindly to people like you.”
Her captor raised his head in question, his free hand inches away from grazing her chest, but before he could respond to her statement, he was hauled by the back of his throat and was sent flying to the ground in a cloud of dust. Chi-Chi’s hands dropped, where she crossed her arms over her chest, and a frown grazed her features once more.
"I can handle myself, ya know" she bit out, making her way over to her husband and his bruised opponent.
Goku looked at his wife, his goofy grin melting away her frown. “I know,” he said with a shrug. “You should wear more clothes… that guy almost touched ya.”
"Says the guy who’s walkin’ ‘round here half-naked. If anythin’, it’s you who should be wearin’ more clothes.”
Goku’s loud laughter filled the silence as he placed a hand over Chi-Chi’s shoulder, pulling out his trademark staff. She leaned against him, chocolate brown eyes twinkling as they scanned their near-unconscious foe. She wrapped an arm around his waist. “Told ya you should be worried ‘bout my husband,” she said with a wink, flaunting her skin purposefully, as both her and Goku stood over the guard.
"He don’t take too kindly to people like you."
