One of the things I've come to admire about DBZ is that in every major arc, one of their enemies becomes a new friend.

Piccolo comes to Goku's aid when the Saiyans arrive, and ends up becoming a second father to Gohan.

Vegeta ends up switching sides when they fight Frieza on Namek. He ends up marrying Bulma and raising a son.

The Cell saga gave us Krillin's future wife, Android 18.

Majin Buu gave us...Majin Buu.

It even carried over into Dragon Ball Super with the additions of the destroyer god Beerus and his aide Whis to the cast.

I find that one of the biggest themes of Dragon Ball (whether it was intended or not) is redemption. Aside from the (former) villains you mentioned, a lot of people that Goku meets in his journeys start off in kind of a bad place. Bulma starts off as kind of a selfish brat, Yamcha is a desert bandit, Krillin is an underhanded jerk, and Tien is obsessed with power, just to name few. But through their association with Goku, they all become better people. It's a very uplifting and hopeful aspect of the series.

Tonight is the last night of DBZ Kai reruns. Next week is a DB Super marathon, then the week after that is a Boruto marathon, then the week after that will be Toonami's new hours.

Saw the Descendants short Audrey's Royal Return. I will not miss this franchise. That was a disaster.
I'd tell Pumpkin Spice to go back where he came from but I'm not sure he'd still fit in the bottom of an outhouse.
Happy 2nd anniversary to what I believe is Disney’s best program, Parker Plays.
So now entire three and a half minute long music videos count as ads?? No thanks, YouTube.

I really like your avatar. Violet Evergarden ranks pretty high on my list of favorite animes from last year, alongside Devilman Crybaby and Megalo Box.
