The Dragon ball manga was revolutionary and great. They did a good job with both of the REAL animes (DB and DBZ none of that GT ******** ). It started a new era pretty much. If you read interviews of most shonen writers now, they'll say that they were heavily influenced by the Dragon ball manga. Luffy, Naruto, Gon, and many others all have very strong resemblances to Goku. Kishimoto (the writer of Naruto) even put a tailed beast in his manga named Son Goku and named the Jinchuriki (the person the beast is inside) named Roshi. Those are both names of characters from Dragon Ball. This is all about the manga of course but the anime was pretty well done and stays true to the manga mostly. I don't really see how DBZ isn't a good anime to be honest. If the manga that it is based off of wasn't ever made, most popular manga and anime nowadays wouldn't exist, at least not in the form that they are currently in. Just because the character development and emotion isn't on par with some more emotional anime, it is still great, it just isn't the same type of anime. This is like saying that you think that the Beatles sucked but love Rock music, you can think they're bad but at the very least you must respect them as being revolutionary and understand that the music that you do like is only around because they existed. The other issue I have with this is that DBZ actually does have pretty good character development and a good plot. It's a pretty lighthearted anime/manga but I'd say that I felt strongly attached to the characters at the end of it.


Bottom line is that it is a revolutionary piece of art that truly serves it's purpose (to entertain). It doesn't try to be some deep touching thing the entire time because that isn't the type of anime/manga it is. It's an entertaining and funny story which is all it ever attempted to be. I can respect the type of anime/manga that is deep and emotional that you think about for weeks but I can also respect DBZ/DB as well.

It is exactly to the character limit because I felt like I had to once I was close to it. Some OCD **** .

I knew I wasn't the only one who loves DB and DBZ because of the show itself. Everyone says people who like them like it from nostalgia... Which is 100% false   
   
   
   
   
I love you
