Funny I should run across this today. Last night I watched an old VHS of the first time Buu appeared in the series. It's been a long time since I've seen it and I happen to find this today, pretty cool.
Anyway, I have recently designed a charrie vaguely similar to Buu. Vaguely, meaning that he is an ultimate evil with a lot of style and power. BUT, this guy has no torso. Search 'Nero' on here and you'll see what I mean.
Was his name Majin Buu...or something? ....I don't remember. It's been years since I was forced to watch it by my cousins. I think I liked the childish fat one better. He was more amusing...especially when he was mad.
