you don't have to be a child to enjoy DBZ. It's got great action, fight sequences, great story and amazing characters. Nothing will ever compare to the fight scenes and action in DBZ.

Did anyone else think the series was extremely racist with racial genocide, and racial purity bullshit. I swear most 4channers are racist because of this, thinking they're some sort of special saiyan from Childhood

Naruto, One Peice, Bleach... All much more interesting in combat, also better shows. DMZ is all same all episodes.

Manga Dragon Ball was a pretty fucking good shonen.
Anime Dragon Ball kinda sucked.

I disagree

Powerlevel fights are the dumbest shit, fights where techniques are used situationally and differently each time are more interesting. Think pre soundnin kidnap arch in naruto and one piece. Dragon-ball never really had any internal physics that meant anything.
>>
>>101331407
To be honest, part of the reason I enjoyed DBZ was because of it's raw sledgehammer approach to action. In a manga like DBZ, you expect things to be over the top, where as in Naruto, technique and strategy made fore a better approach to fight scenes compared to its desire to emulate DBZ (funny considering Kishimoto is a big fan of the series) as it dragged on

It's not even the best shounen anime ever produced.

It's not even the best part in its story, that would be Dragonball
>>
Say what you will about Dragonball Z, but no one can deny it's popularity. Even people that don't watch anime know Goku, Frieza, and Vegeta. It's been a decade since the anime ended, and games, movies, and toys, are still made based on it. Even hollywood became involved with the series, with the shitfest known as DBZ Evolution. It has near unlimited replay value, and no other anime has been able to garner an audience on the magnitude DBZ did. Thanks to DBZ, many western audiences became anime fans. DBZ saved anime, and it'll do it again.

I wonder what triggered the world-wide popularity in the first place.

Transforming aliens and martial arts.

It's the french version, sounds effects sucked.

Based Krilin here.
>>
>>101330458
Amusing how there's only 4 or 5 original characters pictured here, all saiyans, the rest being some sort of fusion of them. Really shows how the power level creep and SSJ nonsense ruined the show.
>>
>>101333195
Doesn't change that it's not even the best shounen
>>
>>101333447
was krillin the strongest human? or was it Pan?
on a side note, why was there never a side story with Master Roshi in his prime?
>>
>>101333562
was the best, a vast majority still believe it is. English dub was fantastic as well, which is rare for anime.
>>
>>101333288
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>
>>101333695
>a vast majority still believe it is
Probably because they haven't watched more shounen than DBZ leading to that belief in the first place
>>
I enjoyed it when it was airing on TV but that has been more than 10 years ago.
I prefer Dragonball over DBZ now.

Pan was 1/4 Saiyan.
I think Krilin is the strongest from Saiyan saga to Cell Saga but after that, he stops training and Tenshinhan eventually get stronger than him.
He could defeat him with Kienzan though.

>>101333195
It's actually been almost twenty years since DBZ ended, not a decade

>Ocean dub was fantasic

I sincerely hope you're referring to the Ocean dub, because if you are, then I agree with you. but if you're referring to the Funimation dub, then you just went full pleb

OP did everything better. DBZ has little to no world building(no room for discussion), less innovative fights/abilities and only focuses on Goku to save the day. Nothing unexpected ever happens.

The Dragonballs are also the biggest deus ex machina ever created.

>>
>>101330930
I started watching DBZ was I was like 12 because nothing else was on in the early 00s and this would air around 5PM, where most stations that aired cartoons on weekday afternoons would conclude the time block (Fox, UPN, WB, WGTW, PBS, etc.). Even then, when WGTW was airing something like Gilligan's Island reruns, it would win out half the time.

lol, 3 episodes to charge an attack isn't slow?

i think i'll stick with one piece, stuff actually happens in it~
>>
>>101330930
The story was just a build up for Goku fighting the new most powerful whatever in the universe, the characters were generic and one dimensional the fights were pretty much the same powerlevel aura screaming energy beam HAAAAAAAAAAAA! even today generic shounen have better action scenes.

DBZ was shit, DB is the real deal.

It's not like everything can be fixed with the dragonballs right?

if we are talking about very long series (110+ eps) than yes, dragonball is by far the best one ever produced (followed by sailormoon)
