Ever since this fight, Gohan has given up on fighting and has continually gotten weaker to the point that he can't use his Super Saiyan transformations without straining himself. Gohan can still hold his own against Freeza's soldiers, Shisami, and Tagoma in his base form and overpower them when he transforms into a Super Saiyan.
After Freeza's attack on Earth, Gohan returned to training with Piccolo. During his training with Piccolo before the start of the Tournament of Power, Gohan is pushed beyond his limits and manages to unlock his hidden power once again, becoming stronger than ever before.
Both as a child and an adult, Gohan is known to be a capable swordsman, as well as an adept teacher. Voice actors[ edit ] Gohan is voiced in the original Japanese anime and all other media by Masako Nozawa. Nozawa, who also voices Goku, revealed that she did not know she would be playing Gohan until receiving the script on the day of recording his debut episode. Despite having to voice Gohan, Goku, Goten and Bardock, Nozawa claims she is able to instantly get into the respective character simply upon seeing their image.
Jillian Michaels replaced Henderson in the later part of the Cell arc, while his adult version is voiced by Brad Swaile. Henderson believed her experience playing Goku in Dragon Ball made it simple to develop Gohan's voice, though stressed performing as him was "tiring" due to the action of the series requiring louder volumes. She also remembered scheduling conflicts thanks to her wedding, setting the stage for the studio to audition other voice actors for the part of Gohan, and being disappointed at the role being recast.
Nadolny was called in to audition inwhen the English dub of Dragon Ball Z was recast. She said her most challenging time voicing the character was during his fight against Cell where she had to make him sound as "deep, tough and as much like a man as possible. Final BoutGohan is voiced by Lex Lang. In the Toonami Asia dub produced by Bang Zoom! In a rare English dub of the anime produced in the Philippines by Creative Products Corporation, Gohan was voiced by Ethel Lizano who also directed that dub.
Galang, who was 12 years old at the time he voiced Gohan. Appearances[ edit ] In Dragon Ball[ edit ] Gohan is introduced as the five year-old son of the series protagonist Gokunamed after his adoptive great-grandfather. Described as well-mannered and reserved,   Gohan's story begins following his abduction by the extraterrestrial Saiyan named Raditzwho is also his uncle.
While Goku is pinned to the ground, Gohan's extreme distress explodes with the release of his dormant power, which allows him to injure Raditz. Piccolo then takes Gohan away following the fight and Goku's death, and trains him for the upcoming battle against the two other Saiyans, Vegeta and Nappathough Piccolo is aware that training the son of his greatest enemy will be a risk.
Gohan, along with Krillin and Vegeta, are then forced into an encounter with Friezawho seeks the Dragon Balls for immortality. Shortly after the fight with Freeza begins, Krillin is impaled by one of Freeza's horns. Freeza stops Gohan as he tries to save Krillin, who has now been thrown into the ocean below, and he mocks him, saying it is pointless to try to save his friend since he and Vegeta are both about to die.

Gohan is extremely angered by being unable to save Krillin and attacks Freeza without hesitation. He manages to knock Freeza into a small island below, and then he blasts him with a series of energy blasts before ending the attack with a Masenko.
Freeza is able to send it back at Gohan without taking any damage, but he is once again shocked that a child could produce such an attack. Shortly after this, Freeza transforms into his original and most powerful form. Once he does this he immediately kills Dendea young Namekian who had been secretly healing Gohan, Krillin, Piccolo and Vegeta. However, he is unable to land even a single blow. Gohan is shown to settle back into school life on Earth, waiting for Goku to return home from Namek.
After Trunks kills Freeza and his father King Cold then tells Goku about the Androids,  Gohan goes into the wilderness with Goku and Piccolo to train for the upcoming threat. Gero Android 20 activate Androids 17 and 18 and Cell is discovered,  Gohan enters the Room of Spirit and Time with Goku where they train for 1 year 1 day on earth, however in their case according to Mr.
Popo, Goku and Gohan still had 3 hours left in the room, but they came out having finished their training earlier than expected. Gohan makes the jump to Super Saiyan while he is in the chamber and after they emerge, both Goku and Gohan retain the physical characteristics of a Super Saiyan without any of the drawbacks of its form increased aggression, energy loss, etc.
After Goku initially fights Cell but realizes later that he cannot defeat him, Gohan is called to fight to the surprise of everyone else and Cell. During the fight, Gohan asks Cell to stop the Cell Games tournament and then he tells him about his power.
Cell, instead of heeding Gohan's warning, attacks him in an effort to force Gohan to show his true power. Gohan holds his own for a while until Cell becomes impatient and bored. This backfires, however; he waits too long to finish Cell, who decides to self-destruct when transformed back to his semi-perfect form, as a last-ditch effort to destroy Gohan and the Earth.
Goku, in an act of self-sacrifice, uses teleportation to take Cell to Kaio-sama 's planet. Thinking Cell dead, the fighters lower their guard only to be surprised by a blast that kills Trunks. Cell returns, having regenerated from a single Cell that survived the blast, and also adopted the instant transmission technique.
Right before Cell is about to finish Vegeta, Gohan intercedes which costs him the use of his left arm. I'm sure I'm going to get hate for that but I and many other fans simply don't believe it let alone buy it at all! Frieza Training for 4 months to reach a form that surpasses Super Saiyan Blue?

No way that's gonna just fly by with me, even if he was born with the power to fight Super Saiyan Goku and never trained a day in his life. The worst culprit on this topic is no doubt Future Trunks and our 2 new female saiyans yes the very first females to become super saiyans in the franchise Caulifa And Kale not only gain such an increase from only turning into super saiyans for the first time but then excel at becoming enough powerful to even challenge the likes of goku at his new found Saiyan god power just based on on a Saiyan being born with loads of S-Cells in their genes in the manga And yet they are immediately way below that level of goku!!??
It feels like with certain characters here like trunks, kale, 17, Caulifa etc, gaining these high levels of power to even be able to match their powers towards the main character goku makes me feel that NOTHING feels earned.
If only the show Took some time to develop God Ki, no matter if it's an episode or two, It should've tried its best to fix this new level of power so the show can stay interesting instead what you end up here is this mess and speaking of A mess, I mean what isn't a mess with this show?
Geez I've never cringed so hard at a anime in regards to transformations as much as this one, this is one of the most over used in the shonen genre of anime but its creativity of it now lacks any substance or meaning for any character with a new form in this show and just feels like color pallet changes like throwing multi color sprinkles on top of the worst birthday cake ever. Not to mention The names of some of these transformations are downright awkward to say in face value In short When it comes to power ups and transformations in dragonball it is sadly now become a complete joke when before it really wasn't and at times in this series it can look like a complete Asspull.
Super Saiyan Rage is commonly referred to as an Asspull because we never really got to see Trunks earn the power despite his brief training with Vegeta. If getting his ass kicked about over the place by daddy counts. I stated earlier that I would love if they didn't have the two movie arcs adapted at the start of DBS, and I believe that omitting those two arcs would greatly help in opening up more time for future story arcs to develop.
I would personally have taken the time to dive into Trunks and his hidden potential, I would spend the time showing how he became as strong as he was and why he was worthy of fighting among gods such as Goku, Vegeta, and Goku Black. That way, his form wouldn't be such an asspull because it would have been developed and built up where otherwise wasn't in the finished product.
When you get right down to it the main story plot are not really as interesting or not as varied as it could be in certain arcs there are many places that could of been explored or characters to get a better in depth look into I'm Looking at YOU JIREN The GAY. Even though yes we do get more about the lore regarding the gods of destruction and angels as well as its laws and the order that governs universes and certain species with their own unique traits but we should be given enough information that could keep viewers invested as it tend to deviates to having what is perhaps very common nowadays and that is fake tension or the likelihood of something at stake which lets be honest the show is called dragon ball where the dead can be bought back to the living anyways however what made the previous series standout was how the mood change in the story of when something dangerous was not what the heroes could expect.
But Now the heroes have unlikely help thanks to beerus and whis and granted even Zeno which is a character who is at the top tier of all the powerful characters and yet goku has already befriended him so where is the urgency gone now and where can the danger even esculate from there?
The Dragon Balls were originally created by Namekians and they were programmed to have restrictions, keeping some portion of intensity and stakes for our characters. But now we have planet sized balls that can literally grant anything and can supposedly be gathered quite quick. Taking away these Dragon Balls would keep the little tension that Dragon Ball had left rather than completely making anything possible.
Sure, these Super Dragon Balls could have been created by a Namekian and they have helped moved story arcs forward, but aside from opening up the idea of a godly Namekian they are instead created by some dragon god Zarama, Seriously!
Which is why the pre production, the writing and any concept are lost in the mix and overall damages itself and its chances to make any convincingly good story ideas what so ever and instead decides to shoot itself in the foot along with the fact that this story takes place within a 10 year time skip before the end of Z which happens to indicate in the very least that there was never any tension to begin with.
Now to note, I am not defending nor attacking the animation of Super. There are moments where it looks obviously poor in how its handled, but there are also moments where it's undeniably great. Taking sides would be immature on my part, and the point of this review is to eliminate some very common lies about Super, but in the process some of you may look at the animation differently than you once did.
If you think Super looks great as of now, or if you think it still looks Subpar, I can understand both viewpoints, but for this review I won't be picking sides. Even if there are points where it seems like I'm trying to defend Super's animation, I only do so as there is far more negative misinformation than positive. But before I begin myth busting, it's best that you know many prominent words in this review that relate to animation which are crucial to understanding the topic at hand.
First things first, it's best to make sure that you're aware of the difference between art, animation, and story boarding, because I've seen many people refer to art or story boarding as animation, which they clearly aren't.
Art is exactly what we all know it as, it's a motionless drawing that is used in conjunction with other drawings to create what we know as animation. Animation is the process of utilizing multiple drawings in a sequence to convey movement, but the animation is a result of numerous drawings, not just one. Storyboarding is a basic outline given to the animators which basically tells them how each scene is constructed and how the animators should animate that scene, or if you want to use an analogy, you could say that the storyboard is the skeleton while the art and animation are the skin.
So when you see a bad pictures from Dragonball Super Episode 5, 24, 25 btw there are many! If you really like the camera angles or choreography of a certain scene, the person to praise for those ideas being implemented is usually the storyboard artist rather than the animators, as the storyboard artist builds the skeleton of the episode.
However, this is not always the case, as some animators such as Naotoshi Shida decide to completely ignore the episode's storyboard and animate a scene purely with their own thought process.
But now for the staff positions. Key animators and inbetween animators speak for themselves, they draw key frames and inbetween frames respectively. The difference between them is that a key frame is generally on the screen for much longer than an inbetween frame, so because of that key frames are generally quite detailed whereas inbetweens are very rough, as the viewer doesn't see them for more than a fraction of a second.
There are also second key animators, who assist that episode's animation supervisors by correcting as many iffy frames of art as they can to ensure more consistent quality across the board. The storyboard artist obviously makes the storyboard which is essentially the skeleton of the entire episode. All of these people are what keep an episode afloat, while the higher ups focus on refining their work. Lastly, the higher ups themselves.
The animation supervisor is someone who orchestrates the animators as well as correcting their work to make sure it looks good and consistent, and occasionally animating sections of their own. The assistant supervisor is obviously the assistant to the animation supervisor, often helping by animating a scene in the episode or also providing corrections. The chief animation supervisor has the job to basically take art frames already corrected by the supervisors and correct them to ensure that there is a good bridge between the differing styles of the multiple supervisors.
There is also what I'm going to be referring to as "bank animation", which is basically animation that is recycled to be used across multiple episodes, as a lot of people have noticed that tactic being used recently in Super. However, utilizing bank animation didn't just start recently, in fact it's been used in the Dragonball series for a long time. However, the reason why we're seeing it so often in Super recently is both due to the show's schedule and as a method to decrease the amount of work animators need to put on an episode so they can work on another one later down the line.
But it's not like Dragonball invented this tactic, as it's pretty unanimous among most anime franchises. Something I've seen Many people claim about Dragonball Super episodes is budget. If the budget is high the animation is great, and if the budget is low the animation sucks.
That seems to be people's thought process about how Super's animation works, that a good episode has a large budget, and a bad episode had a small one. It would seem obvious, after all, isn't that how most anime work? To put it simply, all these claims are wholeheartedly false. To begin with, the animation of an episode depends on other factors far more than it depends on a budget.
A typical Super episode relies on the following: That's a lot to take in but in layman's terms it means budget is almost completely irrelevant to how a Super episode looks. If you look at the best looking episodes, they often have very large talented staffs with great supervisors and storyboard artists, are viewed by Toei as important and hyped up episodes, and have many more weeks of time given to work on them than a lesser episode.
A typical Super episode usually gets around six or seven weeks of production, whereas a more important episode gets anywhere from eight to even eleven weeks.

In fact, this holds true for almost any anime in general. Budget isn't really a big factor for animation for almost any episodic anime you've watched. Just as an example, One Punch Man, which has been praised to no end for its incredible animation, had only an average budget as stated by the series' own director, and the reason for the amazing animation quality was actually the hardworking and well organized staff.
In conclusion, budget does not have a substantial effect on the animation quality of most anime, especially Dragonball Super, even more so due to how Toei often has multiple ongoing series that they produce.
Finally, the series' schedule is something I want to discuss. People seem to think that because the animation in Super has become more consistently good recently compared to past arcs, the schedule for the series has improved. But this is not the case, in fact it's a problem that will continuously affect Super far later down the line.
Almost any anime in the industry takes around half a year to prepare for the show's eventual premiere, so that the animators aren't rushed to finish an episode at the last minute and risk losing quality. But Super, due to Toei's poor planning, only had around two months of pre-production at most and aired with only the first four episodes completed.
This is exactly why certain Episodes was so terribly rushed; the series' schedule collapsed on the animators and they had to turn in tons of sloppy work to even get the episode to air on time. Because of Toei's nonexistent foresight, not only did early episodes suffer, all future episodes would have to cope with it.
The schedule for Super means the second animators finish one episode they immediately have to begin working on another, or they sometimes work on multiple episodes at once, or they even have to use bank animation from a previous episode to keep up with the schedule's demands.
Many of the worst looking episodes of Super were almost entirely outsourced, as it was essentially a necessary sacrifice to keep up the quality of later episodes. Episode 90, Frieza Returns one of the most praised Super episodes, had one of the worst schedules of any episode of the series, but the crew pulled out all the stops and managed to make an above average episode regardless. The reason why newer episodes look better isn't because the schedule itself has improved, but rather that the animators are playing it smarter and using tactics that minimise the stress and make sure the episode makes it on time while still looking consistent.
Also, if you look at more modern episodes, even then there are almost no newbies on Super, in fact as Super has progressed more and more animation veterans join the cast. If an episode looks poor, it could be due to any number of factors, many of which I mentioned earlier lack of time, lack of staff, etc.
Now that doesn't mean that there aren't BAD animators, but even then the bad animators on Super still have years of experience and simply aren't able to make as good of work as other animators thanks to Super's schedule. At this point in Super's life cycle, bad or at the very least minimalistic episodes are practically a necessity to make sure good episodes turn out alright.Goku vs Jiren Pelea Full Fight HD Pelea Completa Español
Even if an episode isn't exactly bad, more often than not it's an episode that is mostly story with minimal complex animation, all for the sake of allowing the animators to work on later episodes. Sadly, if these types of episodes didn't exist, Super would be an awful looking mess. Despite all the leaps Super has taken in animation quality, it will unfortunately never live up to its full potential, all thanks to a bad start that turned so many people away right as the show began.
As much as many of us hate to admit it, Super's animation will likely never be up to par with other shonen animes such as My Hero Academia, Hunter x Hunter, or the previously mentioned One Punch Man.
It certainly has shown brief moments of spectacle, but thanks to Toei's terrible preproduction planning and the schedule that will always be a leash around the animators' necks, the chances of getting episodes like Episode 66 are once in a blue moon at this point. The animation quality of Super has improved, and there's no denying that, but unless Super decides to take long seasonal breaks which it never did to give the staff the time to recuperate, there will always be poor episodes of Super.
