Because adventuring and fun.

Early Dragon Ball was great, it really went to shit when Raditz turned up.

It captured the dreams of every kid aged 6 to 16. It's not like kids care about whether someone on /a/ thinks their harem anime is objectively better. The only thing that mattered was it was good, best not to over analyze it.
>>
Did Dragonball invent the tournament arc?
Because kid-me loved tournament arcs.

Dragonball
>fun adventuring all around the world
>characters were relevant besides sayians
>Goku was challenged every step of the way
>good comedy, story telling and characters

DBZ
>Goku, vegeta and maybe gohan scream at their opponents or invent a transformation to beat them
>>
Was the Manga already shittastic popular, when the Anime hit?
