      Honestly, I hate this series. I find it to be really boring and repetitive. Usually when there is a popular show or movie that I don't like, I can understand why people like it and why I don't like it. For Dragon Ball Z, I can't see why anyone would find it entertaining. I used to think it was because of nostalgia, but even nostalgia can't blind people this much, can it? I still think nostalgia plays a big role in why people love it, but there has to be something else. Another reason maybe because Dragon Ball Z influenced future anime like Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach (I find all 3 of those shows to be vastly superior to DBZ by the way). That's true, DBZ was influential. But Astro Boy influenced DBZ. The Flintstones influenced The Simpsons. But no one thinks Astro Boy is the best anime ever nor does anyone think the Flintstones is better than The Simpsons. Maybe it's because both of those shows are older? So maybe years from now people will look back at DBZ and not like it as much? Putting that aside, I guess I should get into why I don't this series. As said earlier, I think DBZ is very repetitive and boring. I'll start with the best aspect of DBZ which are the fights. For a show that's so driven by action, Dragon Ball Z's fight choreography isn't very good. It's a lot of characters dodging flurries of punches that only inflict damage when the screenwriter needs them to. None of the fight choreography is clever. In addition to that, once you've seen one DBZ fight, you've seen them all. Every fight is pretty much the same, just different "power levels" each time. You can compare DBZ to a show like Naruto in which a lot of the fight choreography is precise because the characters' movements have value, stakes, and wit assigned to them in the service of winning a battle. All the fights in Naruto are different. Everyone has their own fighting style. DBZ is the same shit over and over again. I don't see the need of me continuing to say why I don't like DBZ seeing how I just explained why the BEST part of it is boring. And this review would get too lengthy.moreless
    • The best anime ever made

      Ah.. the good old days racing home after school to watch this on Toonami will forever be some of my best memories growing up as a child. This masterpiece completely revolutionized anime in Japan as well as America for a reason. I'm 22 now and this show is still a part of my life. 10/10
