in what the dubbed version? Goku goes to the south galaxy, there were still planets there. Dead cities but planets and stars. this debate has been going on for a while I noticed.
people say he one Shotted it, people say he went around destroying it.
People say in the dubbed version he destroyed it, people say in the original it was being attacked. Is there anything 100% official now?
The fact that there's still planets and stars doesn't mean much. On screen we see what, a few dozen, hundreds? Even if there was 200 million+ that would still be more than 99% of the galaxy destroyed. To put that in perspective, let's say New York City was hit with a nuclear bomb. Would it be fair to say that the entire city has been destroyed if the only structure left standing was a small shed near the edge of the city? The limited point of view that we get from Goku going to South Galaxy isn't enough to prove anything.
You also have to take character reactions into context with this. Why would King Kai freak out if there was some guy blowing up planets in South Galaxy? Even if he was destroying hundreds of solar systems at a time, that's no reason to be even remotely concerned. A galaxy is a big place, and from what we understand of the DB universe, South Galaxy is actually a quadrant of the universe, not a galaxy in the traditional sense. That makes it even more retardedly big. That would be like bacteria trying to hurt your finger nail. Why would King Kai freak out unless it was a truly significant amount of destruction?
This is what we know:
In both versions, King Kai freaks out because Broly is damaging South Galaxy, and he's worried North Galaxy is next.
In the official dub, King Kai says it's destroyed.
In the official sub he says it's under attack.
In both versions we see a scene of South Galaxy, "fading out".
I've heard the argument before that that's not what a galaxy would like when it's being destroyed, but I feel like that's really nitpicky. DBZ has always been pretty far from having perfect science. Toriyama and the other people that make it aren't exactly rocket surgeons. It's very reasonable to say that they probably just winged it without knowing the specifics of how to animate a galaxy being destroyed. I think the clear intent of that scene though was to show that something very bad happened to South Galaxy. I really feel like it's unreasonable nitpicking to try and use science to say that that scene isn't showing a galaxy being destroyed, while ignoring the obvious writer intent and context.
