‘Dragon Ball’ is not that it stands out especially for its romantic component (and it’s not that we look for it), but yes, it has left us some of the most curious couples in the world of anime. And curiously, one of the couples in the series that has proven to be one of the most solid and stable for years found a lot of opposition even within the anime team at first.
What Vegeta and Bulma what?
When Trunks arrived from the Future with the bombshell that he was Vegeta’s son, it shocked many readers, and even more so when it was revealed that he was also Bulma’s son. Over time and despite the differences between the two characters, they have proven to be a very stable couple, but in his day Toriyama’s decision to “get them together” also surprised the dubbing actors of the series.
In an interview to promote ‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’, the anime’s voice actors took the opportunity to remember some of the most iconic moments in anime. Masako NozawaGoku’s voice, ended up confessing that at the time the couple shocked him a lot.
In fact, he even spoke in his day with Hiromi Tsuru, the deceased voice actress who lent her voice to Bulma, but she didn’t understand it either but that there was nothing to do. The thing continued messing and Toru FuruyaYamcha’s voice actor, even asked Akira Toriyama why Bulma didn’t marry his character instead of Vegeta.
All the “drama” in the end stayed there and Toriyama didn’t make things clear either and continued to write the story and the characters as he saw fit.. She has already had a lot of rain since then and it seems that there are no more objections to the “ship”, although it is curious to know that at the time not even the voice actors fully approved of the romance.
