Does Dragon Ball even have female fans? Anonymous 26200

Ok, so I hate Dragon Ball - I never liked the anime or manga and I never will, I find the overly-muscular designs for repulsive and gross, the basic power system is so boring to me and I despise that it turned into a cash-cow franchize that pumps unoriginal and uncreative movie after movie simply for easy profit-off of nostalgic moid fans. All that jazz.
But… two of the new characters they introduced are… how do I say it… cute? Their names are Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, and for some reason I find their designs for adorable???? They aren't muscle freaks like most male characters, they have endearing soldier uniforms (with capes on top of that, and even if I find this design choise for absurd this just makes them look even cuter) and I feel so much shame - I don't even know exactly what their roles and character are, but the moment I saw them together my brain screamed "SHIP SHIP SHIP SHIP!" I even saved some fanart because of how adorable (to me atleast) they are.
What do I do? I feel embarrassed from myself, even if I'm not going to see the movie and I have never supported (and never will!) the Dragon Ball franchize I feel utter shame just from the thought that I find these two characters cute.
I hate this moid show so much. I'm thinking of pirating the movie when it becomes available online, simply to see what these two characetrs are about.
Are there any DB fans here? What are your thoughts on the series?

Dragon Ball is still going? If I remember well, the author wanted to end it after a few seasons but since it brought good cash, the higher ups forced him to keep drawing it.
I used to watch it back when it runned on TV when I was 3-5yo, so I barely remember anything about it, but I used to really like the background art and coloring of the early seasons. The blue raccoon/cat thing was my favourite character because I thought it was so cute. Honestly I don't even recall what was the plot about, my brain erased everything but the slice of life/filler episodes and the opening/ending songs.

The early series is enjoyable because there is more adventure and it's not just about fighting (when Goku is a kid). It gets really boring and repetitive as it goes on but that stuff is classic imo.

Sadly, yes. There are even more movies planned.
>If I remember well, the author wanted to end it after a few seasons but since it brought good cash, the higher ups forced him to keep drawing it.
It's the first time I've heard this information, but it sound extremelly plausable. I have a lot of respect for the mangaka of the series (Toriyama, if I got the name right) and even if I never gave Dragon Ball any attention I've read his other manga Dr. Slump. I personally feel bad about him when I think about it, imagine not being in control of something you created and see it being turned into a cash-cow.

Maybe I should give the original series a go when I have the time, it doesn't sound so bad by your description.

Yeah, I used to have the Dragon Ball fanbook and they mentioned that. It also says that the reason of why Majin Boo (was that his name?) 1st form is just a funny fat pink guy is because the author wanted to at least have a bit of fun drawing the main villain since he was already sick of continuing the manga.

Poor guy, hope he takes control back and ends the series as soon as he can. Imagine how many other stories he wanted to make but couldn't because of Dragon Ball.

I used to know this one aussie lesbian years ago who was a big DBZ fan. Honestly miss her, she was a really cool person and kinda got me into the show as well, even if I only liked the earlier parts (vegeta/frieza arcs)

Eh most of it is insanely boring. The fights take forever and ever and ever And ever and ever and ever and inch along at a snails pace that makes you want to throw your TV out the window.

I liked parts of it. I liked the trunks saga. Also liked the beginning of gt when they had to go looking for the balls again, with goku as a child. They were all a bunch of weaklings and it made for less ridiculous fights that crawled along and spanned episodes.. I hate the way they intentionally wrote Pan to be annoying.

I really liked all the versions of Trunks, and unlike what a lot of people will say I'm glad he got to live a happier existence in the future.

Ugh most of its a bunch of guys measuring their dicks for 600 episodes though.

Yeah, Trunks' a cutie, but I don't really like his Sayan form.

I would say it's worth a try especially if you like old-school anime. It is made by Toei back when they were good, who also did Sailor Moon. It's similarly comfy with its cel animation and surprising art consistency and animation quality.

Just watched the Super Hero movie on a camrip (pirated version, I wont give my money for a cash-grab), it was pure dissapointment. The only good part was the gammas and they killed Gamma 2.

I used to be friends with a lesbian on lj who was really into dragon ball.

Hey. Yeah, dbz actually does have a lot
of female fans. We tend to hang out on separate corners of the web (for obvious reasons.) rn I’m on a few discord chats with massive no moids allowed rules. We mostly talk about our character crushes there. It’s good fun.

I like the series-dbz kai, anyway, and only up to the end of the Frieza saga. Cell saga is alright. I love the characters a ton which is the whole reason I can’t honestly say I hate it despite its glaring flaws lol…the characters are all so charming, with only a few exceptions

If you don't like anime focused around fights Z isn't for you. Do give the original a try as it's more adventure/gag. I haven't watched Super Hero as I'm waiting for the bluray to pirate it, but the latest Broly movie is one of the most beautiful anime movies of recent times.

As soon as I saw the gamma bots I knew fangirls would be all over them.
Same for me, honestly.

Bluray being out means you can pirate it at non-shit quality.
