Tweek...you got to get out more. Or at least pay attention to most of my posts.

On topic, I did hear that DBGT is supposedly a lot weaker than DBZ. They attempted to return to more of a DB folklore-y, comedy than the action-dramam that DBZ was. Plus, Akira Toriyama (DB's creator) isn't involved in any of it, which smells of rank commericalism. DBZ ended up nicely, and I, for one, think it's done.

That is, unless, DBGT focuses on the second generation of Z-Sensi (Adult Gohan, Trunks, Goten, and Pan.)

I heard that it involves Goku getting turned into a kid again and teaming up with Pan to search for the Dragon Balls. Or something.

I am not that big of a dbz fan, the series just seemed to go down hill after DB. They made one issue of the manga into one episode of a tv show... even if the issue was a sequence of well done fight scenes, actual time 10 seconds streatched to 22 minutes...

 I watch it but I do not go out of my way to watch new episodes.

Man, these peace-time eps. of DBZ aren't very good at all. I really hate Pan (Gohan's daughter), because I hate cute, precoious kids. I hate how everyone's still doing the same crap. And I hate Goku trying to be funny.

I prefer DBZ, especially the Majin Buu Saga. GT is crap in my opinion, thay chose to focus on weak characters (Pan is irritating).

I'm not a huge fan of DBZ, but I have watched 2 of the sagas. The Saiyaman Saga and um..the one that came before that, I've forgot which one. The Cell Saga, maybe? It was so long ago. But it wasn't too bad.

My best friend is crazy about it. She's got posters, the figures the video games, everything. She recommended it to me and I just started watching it one afternoon and got into it.

But like I said, I just watched the 2 sagas. I didn't stay a fan into the Boo Saga and beyond. But overall, not a bad program  smile

When you live in England and your an anime fan yet due to cash flow you are limited to watching the TV, then your choices are limited. So I choose to watch DBZ rather than the accursed Pokemon.

I'll admit I did enjoy some of it but after a while it got very repetative. The pacing is also terrible, you do not need ten episodes just to charge up a move.

I stuck it out til the end of the Cell saga (quite a feat I think) but never watched GT. All I know is Akira Toriyama stopped the story after Z,however he did do some of the character designs for Gt.

Dragonball has helped anime in many ways but there are far better series out there. (if you get the chance watch Naruto it rocks)

You haven't read the shite SI fanfictions in other anime where the authors have been inspired to copy and rip everything off of every anime in existence. Dragon Ball Z is one of these animes. Do you want me to post links?

Also: Dragon Ball Z have the worst rabid anime fans throughout the entire anime genre. I've been to chatrooms people.

I've seen most of GT in Japan, and that pretty much covers it.  The weak bit is the actual "GT" part at the beginning, which was a dull attempt at an original DB throwback.  The second season is where the sagas start up again, and the fusion and level four crap come up.  It gets wild, but the second and last saga wraps up the story nicely.  So don't get discouraged if it's boring at the beginning.

 Well, back when Cartoon Network UK actually thought an action channel called CNX was a good idea, they showed Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop, a couple of fairly formidable adult animes. Unfortunately, CNX is now Toonami, but they still show Outlaw Star sometime after 10pm. It suffers from a lot of anime flaws but it's highly preferable to Dragonball Z.

 Back when Cartoon Network did Dragonball Z marathons on the occasional Sunday, you could watch an episode in the morning, then you could go play video games, go shopping, hang out with friends etc. and by the time you got back it would still be the same scenario. So, long story short: agreed.  wink

There's a side-scrolling platformer based on the original Dragon Ball series called "Dragon Ball: Advance Adventure" coming to GBA on by birthday (Nov. 18) in Japan. Check out the official website at http://www.hotline-web.com/dgb_adav/

Which, I'm sure, will be of similar quality as the rest of the Dragonball games. Uuuuugh.

Can I just say that this series is one of the ugliest looking cartoons I've ever seen? I mean look at those monlithic foreheads! There's more forehead than face!

I love DBZ. Okay not as much as Transformers though.
My favorite sagas are the Saiyan to Buu sagas.

I used to watch it, but I don't like it anymore.  I looked up what was going to happen in GT in 2001, so I really didn't care to watch it.

I used to love DBZ in 7-9 grade, and read up on GT via the internet. Goku gets turned into a kid by Garlic and Gohan's daughter is introduced (she's a teenager I believe). Trunks also has a sister, but I can't remember if she's introduced in late DBZ or in GT...

I doubt anyone likes GT. I myself like the Cell saga right throught to the Buu saga, especially when Saiyaman comes on the scene, he's so stupid  tongue

I'd rather stick to Z, GT is desperatly trying to flog a dead horse.

Here's my DBZ story.

I used to watch DBZ alot, I was a very avid fan. I taped every episode on Cartoon Netowrk. But then I found out from a web site called DBZ Uncencored that Funimation was ruthlessly ruining this show I loved with a crappy dub, removing the origional music, adding stupid lines and so fourth. After that I hated Funimation with every fiber of my being. Anytime an oppertunity presented itself I would curse out Funimation and hate them even more. I then searched the internet for clips from the japanese version so I could experience this wonderful show in all it's original glory, I must have spent hours searching. I found websites with very good content on DBZ. I even wasted a whole lot of paper printing out character bios from Planet Namek. Then I found out the Inernational Channel aired raw DBZ, I then asked my mom to get digital cable since it had IC and we did. They were on the last half of the Buu saga but I was so psyched to see full episodes of japanese DBZ at long last. There were no subitiles though so I printed translations off of another website, wasting more paper and money. After DBZ ended they started showing GT on IC, I taped GT for awhile then realized that I wasen't even watching the episodes and stoped taping it altogether. Then after a few months I found more anime like Rurouni Kenshin, and Inuyasha. When I watched the taped eps of DBZ again I came to the realization that I didn't care about DBZ anymore. The passion of my hatred for Funimation had diminished, and my overall interest in DBZ had diminished as well. Mabey because I got older, or mabey because I found better anime, or mabey because it just got old after awhile. But now I see DBZ for what it really is: A shallow punch-kick light show with the same basic plot over and over and over.

Also you should head over to jumptheshark at www.jumptheshark.com  and look up DBZ. Some of the peole in there have very interesting arguments for and against the show. The amusing ones are the people that try to defend it. One guy in there has a very interesting story about a DBZ freak he knew.

Dragonball .... What's that word again? .... Ah, I know: "bullshit"!

[ironic mode]But on the other hand it's very interesting to see how you can create a 20 minutes episode from a one page script. Slow motion and speed-lines are really really cool! [/ironic mode]  wink
