Yeah I'm interested in how BRO got "something basically everyone knows" confused with "niche concept".

Characters in DBZ I could name off the top of my head prior to playing that game:

Goku
Gohan
Vegeta
Piccolo

Like yeah everyone knows what DBZ is but saying it's a commonly watched thing is pretty absurd

You must not have watched much Toonami as a kid. DBZ was one of their biggest shows for the longest time.

I don't feel like something that has entered common knowledge can possibly be niche. And goddammit even I watched DBZ and I don't watch anime on principle.

Not that many people watched (or still watch - DB Super is part of the lineup) Toonami

Dude Toonami aired on WB every Saturday morning for two years. It was literally a part of Saturday morning cartoons for two years. So many people watched it

the point is accessibility

to the average kid growing up watching cartoons it was way easier to be exposed to DBZ than Naruto so I don't know how you say DBZ is niche

To the average kid of a specific age range back when anime was barely a thing that registered in the US (Dragonball and Sailor Moon made anime relevant in the US, whereas Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece rode their coat tails after people knew what anime was)

And we're also talking about specifically DBZ which is distinct from DB as a franchise

ITT: people don't believe that different things are relevant to different people.

(I grew up watching Dragonball and Dragonball Z, so it's very mainstream to me, but we're all weird nerds so our sense of relevancy is skewed. I would say Dragonball Z is much less obscure than Final Fantasy or Civilizarion or Blizzard games to a random person on the street.)

The average person on the street won't make this distinction and won't know what Kai is.

well technically dbz abridged is another thing (even though it uses the same characters)
This sig used to be a bunch of quotes about how great I am, but then I realised that that was obvious.

Yes and the pre-merge is about getting cards to make a Yu-Gi-Oh deck that you'll use to play a tournament to decide who makes the merge.
