Filler is IMPORTANT to having good pace and character development.

Mangafags don't understand PACING. Anime is a different medium, you can't just copy+paste the manga into animation and call it a day.
It will feel rushed and inorganic. This is why Kai is soulless compared to the original Funimation dub. Because it tries to stay "faithful" to the manga instead of story-building upon it and having characters interact with eachother organically in occasional day-to-day moments.

Yeah there's some bullshit detours like Goku falling into HFIL and Fake Namek, but then there's
>Gohan and the Robot
>Princess Snake
>Ginyu swapping body with Bulma
>Gohan vs Final Form Frieza
>Gohan vs Vegeta
>Yamcha/Tien vs Ginyu Force
>Vegeta looking for Goku in space
>Goku & Piccolo driving cars
>Yamcha trying x300 gravity training
>Goku in Other World Tournament
>Gohan dating Angela
>Party after Kid Buu's death
..and more that I can't come up with now.
The vast majority of DBZ filler is great, especially if it expands upon lore like the Other World saga (and I'd even throw in Fusion Reborn) which I consider crucial to have a better grasp on the Buu Saga since it's so heavy on afterlife shit.

Sadly this is also why Gohan was the biggest bait and switch in history. Literally anything that made Gohan a character was filler only. And in the original broadcast of Z, this includes one line sentences that are slipped in here and there to subtly pad things out in a natural way. Everything that made the buildup to Cell feel legitimate was only part of the anime. Manga he's just some random kid with no personality except an explosive temper, and his victory comes out of nowhere. No wonder Toriyama didn't see his MC potential.

It wasn't until relatively recently that people started to think anime adaptations should only be the manga but in cartoon form, i.e. advertisements. Older anime always diverged significantly from the manga. Many famous anime directors only became famous through putting their own spin on the original material. Imagine what Sailor Moon or Ghost in the Shell would have been if Ikuhara and Oshii were limited to robotically adapting from the originals. Even people who conceived multimedia properties like Tezuka, Ishinomori or Otomo ended up with entirely different results on the different ends, because 1-to-1 adaptation is impossible and striving for it is counterproductive. Saint Seiya has a spin off movie that was so well receive it got its own filler season of anime, and ended up more popular than the actual manga arc it was making time for. Obviously DB isn't any different in this regard a good portion of Super has been dedicated to "canonizing" anime or film content.

It should be the normal expectation that one same story would naturally diverge in two different media. But modern anime viewers know nothing about art or its history, so it's impossible for them to wrap their heads around this.

Toei made DBZ into the popular powerhouse it has been.
Toei made the legacy.
Toei did the lore and world-building with specials like Bardock.

A lot of people ask me "Why do you look up to and like Bejita so much", and I answer back that I want to be in life as a short man myself.
He comes from a royal bloodline, he always works harder than everyone to achieve his goals, and he has a wealthy and loving sugar mommy wife that supports him in everyway.
