I decided to create an opinion thread on the Cell Saga. I've noticed that while Saiyan & Freeza get a ton of love among serious fans, and while Boo gets a ton of hate among serious fans, the Cell Saga has always been a subject of mixed opinions. Personally I can't decide on whether it's closer to Saiyan & Freeza or whether it's closer to Boo in quality, as I've always had varying opinions on its general quality, so I guess it's in the middle ground for me personally. There are also some fans out there who go on to say that it's even better than Saiyan & Freeza, but while I do hear people say they dislike it more than Boo, that's a rather uncommon an opinion to have in general. But overall, what are your thoughts on the Cell Saga?

Saiyan Saga is more or less a non-starter for me, but I do appreciate it as it's the last time every single warrior had any sort of relevance. The original anime run drags on too far in places during the training phase, and even after Vegeta and Nappa turn up it can be slow at times.

There's parts of Frieza Saga I do and don't like, and parts that drag on, but it's generally pretty enjoyable for me. Again, the filler in the leadup to them getting to Namek sucks, but it's otherwise pretty solid and has a great cast. The final fight between Goku and Frieza is easily the best thing to come out of the series.

I personally think the Cell Saga as a whole is pretty decently paced. I was never really bored, and there was always some sort of surprise or twist. The Gohan vs Cell fight is one of my favourite parts of the series.

Buu Saga is easily the worst part. Some re-watches I don't even bother and just stop at the end of the Cell Saga. Goten and Trunks are super annoying, Gotenks is useless, they nerfed Gohan and made him unlikelable as Great Saiyaman, and the pacing is all over the place. The Faulconer soundtrack isn't as good as the rest of the series in general (but the Super Saiyan 3 and Ultimate Gohan themes are riots).

Cell Saga was good, but it had pacing issues. You can almost split it evenly between the Artificial Humans (Androids) and Cell.

I agree. Androids was to Cell like Saiyan was to Freeza. The only difference is they both take place on Earth, which is why they're considered the same Story Arc.

The problem with Dragon Ball is Toriyama just makes it up as he goes along. The pacing seems bad because he isn't actually planning anything.

And it shows because the editor got in the way of the Cell Saga most of the time.

To be fair, I kind of like the result of the Android Saga where Trunks being all Marty McFly resulted in him being all like:
That's my B.gif


It just creates the obvious issue in the manga where he specifically names them as Androids 19 and 20.

Im not the biggest fan of Gohan while im Fine with him Winning the day the whole passing the torch moment was faaaaar too unearned!
And the reason why its one story Arc not 2 is the same as why Red ribbon is only one Story arc becuase the story didnt end after one opponent!
I would really suggest Dragonball Dissection to all of you!

How was it unearned? His hidden power was teased since episode 1 and he's been a part of every single major battle.

Well from that alone though, it was established by Vegeta/Toriyama in chapter 10 that half-breeds were stronger.

Yeah in the same Statement that uses Super Saiyan in a Completly diffrent Context eventho Nappa should know better!

I don't think Toriyama even knew what a Super Saiyan actually was until he needed to make Goku transform. There was still 3 years between the first time that was mentioned and the chapter Goku actually transformed.
