The Dragon Ball Super mini Prequel Arc has come to an end, and with it, a fitting homage to the classic Dragon Ball Z Great Saiyan Man Arc. This short-lived arc was a welcome break from the norm, and a reminder of the importance of giving the spotlight to characters other than Goku and Vegeta. With its focus on Goten and Trunks and their adventures, this arc was a great way to show the Z Warriors enjoying a slice of life in peace.
Short Dragon Ball Arcs
The Great Saiyan Man Arc was a beloved part of Dragon Ball Z, and its short duration was largely due to fans wanting to see more action and bigger battles. Similarly, this mini prequel arc was kept short, but was still a great way to give fans something different. It was also a great way to show the characters in a different light, as Goten and Trunks were aged up to the point that they no longer looked like toddlers.
The Saiyans are known for aging at different rates, which is why Bulma is getting older while Vegeta remains the same. This is something that was seen throughout the series, with Goku looking like a toddler for a long time. Fans were excited to finally see Goten and Trunks age up, and this arc was a great way to show that.
Goten and Trunks
This arc was also a great way to show the importance of the side characters. Goten and Trunks’ friends from high school were included in different scenes, giving these characters representation. This was a great reminder that the Z Warriors are more than just Goku and Vegeta, and that the other characters are just as important.
