KRILLIN. SENZU BEAN.
>I'm so fucked up.
Did they receive money to advertise lima beams?
LET'S EAT ALL THREE!
Why the fuck did they only keep a pouch worth? Or why didn't each fighter have their own pouch of senzu beans? Korin obviously has an endless supply, so whaddafuck?
I think they took a while to grow or something.
Without the beans they would've been dead a long time ago
yea they took a long time to grow and it was basically just that tiny patch of dirt korin had up in the clouds. Yajirobi basically ate 90% of the supply at any given time as well.
>not taking a bag of uncooked lima beans to school
Did you know?
Undercooked chili beans can result in diarrhea so rancid, a fly will hesitate before suiciding into the room.
Probably the worst plot contrivance of the series. Even worse than the hyperbolic time chamber.
You tried eating them while playing DBZ as a kid, didn't you?
Goku is so fucked up.
The only reasonable excuse I can think for this bullshit is that at the later points of the series the power levels were so high and the attacks so strong that a theoretical stash of beans would basically get destroyed by a stray punch/kick or vaporized by ki.
What? They say multiple times that they take a while to grow.
Why can't people on /a/ understand Dragonball of all things?
Why didn't they grow them in larger quantity?
>CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH
They go from "taking a while to grow" to becoming virtually nonexistent despite the fact they would be completely brokenly OP at virtually every point in the series.
Why don't they wish for more?
this is why I don't eat chili beans or chili in general
Why didn't they just get the eagles to fly them more sensu beans
The Fruits of Might were way cooler than Senzu Beans.
No they don't. Krillin had enough to give to everyone at the cell games.
Well maybe if Yajirobe didn't the giant fucking jar that Korin had of them we wouldn't have this problem.
Why doesn't Goku just ejaculate more senzu beans?
I don't recognize that at all.
If senzu beans take so long to grow, why don't they just wish for a massive amount in case of an emergency?
Why don't they wish for infinite wishes?
If you actually read/watched Dragonball you would know that despite how long they take to grow, Korin had a fucking truckload of the things. The only reasonable explanation for their disappearance is Yajirobe eating them all and frankly that's just as bullshit as pretending they never existed.
Get serious, everyone knows that never works. It's like the first genie rule.
Though there's no rule against wishing for more genies.
I don't see how Yajirobe eating them all isn't a perfectly logical explanation. I mean this is a gag manga.
Because they didn't need to, collecting the dragon balls became trivially easy as the series went on.
Why they didn't wish for an infinite supply of senzus is another question entirely, though.
In Dragon Ball, Korin said it takes hundreds of years to grow a senzu bean.
Because the first time he did it, it caused him to become violently ill, because you're only supposed to eat 1 bean a week. The beans kinda go apeshit on your body if you go past that.
Why doesn't he just grow them in the hyperbolic time chamber?
Because of the beans and the dragon balls, there's absolutely no dramatic tension in DBZ.
Because DBZ is dumb
Why don't the beans regrow Saiyan tails?
Why didn't Toriyama just make a better series?
Why didn't Goku's tail grow back when he was revived?
except 90% of the cast got their revives used up by the end of the Freeza saga. And by that point we rarely saw senzu beans outside of the Cell Games.
What if you made a wish on your last wish that the genie had no memory of your first two wishes, would that work?
Why didn't Goku just eat a Senzu Bean to cure his heart disease?
Why didn't they just de-stone Vegeta with a Senzu Bean?
What happened to the healing magic Krillin used on Vegeta in Namek?
The giant fucking jar.
Namekian Dragon Balls don't have revive limits. The only reason why Goku stayed dead is because he wanted to.
apparently Yajirobe is a fat ass and there doesn't seem to be an explanation to why they become scarce
The door would disappear
It's not supposed to be serious
>Why didn't Goku just eat a Senzu Bean to cure his heart disease?
He does actually, it just makes the disease worse
>Why didn't they just de-stone Vegeta with a Senzu Bean?
Vegeta wasn't literally stone, he was already dead. Once your ki is gone, you can't be revived.
>What happened to the healing magic Krillin used on Vegeta in Namek?
Filler, and even then, I'm not sure that happened
Ok, now you're just being stupid.
Earth: Miraculous healing beans, wish giving rocks, the most brilliant scientists that have ever existed, the most powerful warriors that ever existed.
Why hasn't Earth conquered the universe?
Right before Vegeta gets his ass kicked by Frieza again, he has Krillin blast a hole through his chest and then heal him and heal him for a quick power boost.
im so fucked up
Oh right, I forgot about him.
Why didn't the saiyans power up through self-mutilation rather than prolonged training arcs?
That would make for a pretty grim kids series.
> the most brilliant scientists that have ever existed
That's wrong. Nappa, Vegeta, and Freeza call earth a "back water planet" and their technology is far more advanced than the stuff on earth.
They can't. Vegeta specifically mentions this when he asks Krillin to blast him.
And that's why Dr Gero created things far more powerful than Frieza in a cave.
Dende was the healer you chucklefuck.
he used Freeza's data, but that's very true.
So Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta could have just sat in the time chamber together taking turns nearly killing one another?
Well not necessarily self-mutilation, but instead of throwing him out into the wild Goku could have had Piccolo raise Gohan by repeatedly impaling his stomach and force-feeding him the same senzu bean.
Reminds me of those old dwarf fortress threads about throwing dwarven babies into a pit filled with feral animals so that they would be competent fighters by the time they become adults.
Doing that in the time chamber wouldn't be wise but yes.
Although, seeing as how it didn't help much in the long run during the android arc (Vegeta, Trunks, Goku all had near death experiences and still had to train), I think the increase stopped making much difference.
They knew nothing about Saiyans at that point, Piccolo was still evil and I'm sure a 5 year old would go for that and not just beat the shit out of Piccolo for trying it.
Congratulations, you discovered one of dragonball's plotholes, there aren't many, you should be proud.
I still think the funniest thing about Dragonball is how few plotholes there are when Toriyama just made this shit up as he went along.
He's one of the few people to actually do time travel correctly.
You can't use time travel wrong, nobody ever time traveled, you can make up whatever you want and nobody can tell for sure that wouldn't happen in real life
Also, DBZ is full of holes, there are like three of four pointed out just ITT.
Why didn't Goku just wish to be the strongest?
Hell, why didn't Vegeta do it once he was chilling on Earth?
Paradoxes are a complete pile of shit, though.
Saiyans, for the most part, don't like hand-outs.
That seems weird when Vegeta's entire raison d'etre until post-Frieza was getting a hand-out.
>Also, DBZ is full of holes, there are like three of four pointed out just ITT.
My point is that Toriyama actually goes back and explains a lot of shit.
They don't like cheating. Even when Vegeta wanted to be Immortal he wanted to eventually wear Freeza down.
I love DB, though.
Gotta love the slump
Comedy is what Toriyama does best.
does it cure depression?
Yamcha was still down after Gero penetrated him so no.
How is being goddamn immortal not cheating?
living forever doesn't mean you can beat someone up.
Vegeta just wanted to survive the ordeal.
Has Dr. Slump been completely scanned? I've been meaning to read it, but I can't find a complete version anywhere.
That didn't help anyone in the original timeline.
that's because Piccolo's a retard who should stop going places.
They do it in Shaman King.
So many things I never could see.
So many choices falling on me.
Funniest manga ending ever
Oh the memories!
His editors wouldn't let him.
i'm so fucked up
Senzu beans sure are hard to grow.
All they had to do was give one to Bulma and she'd have a factory churning out thousands a day
Or a factory to mass produce Android 16's programmed to protect the Earth.
That's how stories are written. You have some concepts, ideas, goals, then you make it up and patch the holes as you go.
It's not really impressive, it's just how it works. Also Dragon Ball is full of holes, but luckily they're unimportant and totally unrelated to the message.
yeah because vegeta got such a good glimpse at earth technology.
also you never see friezas men using anything like capsules.
there is actually one hole in the whole time travel arrangement. There would be two cells in trunks original timeline since when trunks traveled to the past cell(from the timeline where trunks was killed) was already underground.
I bet that jar of beans was everything Korin was able to grow and harvest in his lifetime.
They're just not that sick like you neckbeard, will you torture yourself over and over to become stronger/smarter?
Senzu beans were the ultimate bullshit
I don't think anyone denies that, we're just genuinely surprised it dorsnt have more plot holes than this.
Seriously, toriyama does make up a lot of rules as he go along
All of Dragonball becomes easier when you realize everything runs on jrpg rules. Senzu's are just max health potions. Lighten up.
The dragon could not grant a wish like that. It could only replenish someones energy to it's original state, i.e. Restoring Goku's energy so that he could give the Spirit Bomb the final push onto Kid Buu.
It's important to note that most if not all of the dragon ball rules are just introduced within the same chapter that they become a "problem " in. Toriyama's way of creating a bit of drama on the fly. "Oh no! The dragon can't bring back to life someone who died of natural causes" comes to mind
Korin did not have an endless supply. He had a big bucket of them when they were introduced but Yajirobe at them all, and so they became scarce and he could only manage to sprout a few at a time.
>waste wishes on more senzu beans when at any moment half the earth's population could be wiped out
>did, didn't work
>vegeta was never a stone, and that's stupid
>krillin didn't heal vegeta, dende did, and freeza killed dende
Not so fast
The rules when the Hyperbolic Time Chamber is introduced are that only two people could go in at once, and they could only spend 2 days(2 RoSaT years) or the door would disappear and they would become trapped forever.
Of course, just as soon as you explain away one potential plothole in Dragon Ball, another grows in it's place.
Bulma's panties would cure my depression
I do believe Viz has all of it translated, but my beef is that they censor things too much.
great posts, shit thread
I'm sure they just said it to prevent Vegeta from abusing an ideal training ground.
They said that in dragon ball.
the image is perfectly clear, what are you bitching about?
This can't end wel
And that's How Bulma cured Cancer
Didn't goku died of cancer or some stupid shit?
>not harnessing the power of a fetus and becoming the super saiyan god
why didn't they just wished for goku to have regenerative powers or even easier
< goku has learned [heal] >
The genie would probably attempt to grant your fourth wish but then wonder why it didn't work
I can't believe all this talk about the senzu beans and no one has brought up that the sound of them eating one sounds like the most delicious thing ever.
