    Alright, so I get that she’s a nagging neat freak, but explain to me exactly her use as a character: she tries to hold Gohan back from ever being able to do what he wants to or make choices, she thinks she has the right to control and boss around anyone and everyone she meets and she’s such a xenophobe that she even freaks out about gohan and Goku being Seiyans and tries to repress their identities to herself and others all the time. so where does my question come in? What the heck was Akira toriyama thinking when he made the character interactions between Chi Chi and the others? Jesus, she’s only a human. All any of the Z fighters had to do if they wanted to get her to pay attention was light up an energy blast and threaten her, and even Gohan should have gotten fed up with her crap and tried this himself? does anyone thinks its logical or realistic that he would ever listen to his mother when he could easily tell her to F*** off while aiming a Masenko in her general vicinity? Would a child in the real world with super powers ever put up with any of this? I know for a fact that if anyone in the real world had a mother like her, and they had super powers, the moment she started trying to oppress them and make them do as she said unquestioningly, they’d charge up their powers, toss about a lot of choice words and insubordinate phrases and then storm off, letting fear do the work for them. What gives? if someone could help me understand all of this, I might just be able to continue to enjoy my show without always questioning the logic behind all of it…
    on a side note: if someone could please explain to me why Hercule was ever allowed to survive after the birth of his daughter, that’d be great, because Hercule’s necessity played itself out the day she was born. I can’t stand that arrogant bastard…and why in the Gods’ names would the Z fighters allow him to play a farce in order to keep themselves hidden? its not like they could be assassinated by any mortal and in reality, any good super hero, morals and all, still would have broken their code just to shut him up forever. anyways…whoops…that was a long aside. more info is always better guys! sorry for any spoilers…*sheepish grin*
