I watched all the movies back to back, on a recent Sunday (there was nothing else to do).

The movies are pretty cool, as they cut down the story into like an hour, so they don't have time for the urghing and arghing rubbish. They just get straight to the action.

Also "DRAGON, DRAGON, ROCK THE DRAGON!"

Favorite saga? - Frieza or Cell
Favorite character? - Vegeta
Favorite scene/episode? - At the end of one of the movies. Piccolo asks "is it over" and Vegeta says "it's not over till the fish jumps"

*fish jumps*

Vegeta then says, in the most dismissive way ever, "it's over."

I liked the Android and Frieza sagas the best.
Krillin was my favorite character.

Has anyone watched GT? I heard it was basically cartoon porn.

Nah, it was just a bad cartoon. Nothing compared to DBZ.

Quote by redh0tchilip3pp
It doesn't really get much more better than DBZ, tbh.

I'm really apprehensive about the film. I'm not so into it so far.

Aaaah. Fond memories of DBZ.
Rushing home from school to my aunt's house every day to catch the new episodes. A time before beer and women.

I'm just looking forward to joining in the protests about Mr. Popo being a black slave.

Seriously though, James Marsters was pretty good in Torchwood, which gives me hope for Dragonball.

And the same company that did the action scenes for the Matrix trilogy is supposed to be working on Dragonball, so thats something to look forward to, somewhat.

I think it will be terribly cheesy, btu the show kind of was anyway. I'm looking forward to it so much, although, I liked DBZ better than Dragonball.

Best scene ever was when Gohan turned SSJ2 and killed all the little Cells with one punch. Or how easily future Trunks defeated Frieza and King Cold. My favorite movie was the history of Trunks.

Is this seriously a movie? This has to be the single worst name a movie has ever had. I immediately thought of anal porn when I read that.

Dragonball> AIDs> Dragonball Z> Dragonball GT


seriously i think Akira Toriyama had a brain haemorrhage when he changed Dragonball to Z


EDIT:

also concerning complaints of the fact in Dragonball Z nothing EVER happens and they just charge up, it's simply down to the fact that every week a new comic would be released

followed by a 20 minute episode the same week

now in a comic a fight would take the whole thing, just to articulate a 'move' whereas in a cartoon a punch would last all of a second

therefore the cartoon needed to lengthen out each episode with pointless "powering up" and incessant chattering because the cartoon was not allowed to go ahead of the story of the comic

One thing I always wondered about is that they can fight for days in DBZ, but never have to use the bathroom. Just thought I'd add that.

Goten and Trunks are the only ones who have ever used the bathroom haha.

How about the fight that lasted for over 4 episodes despite the fact that at the beginning of the fight it was expressly mentioned that the planet was going to blow up in 5 minutes.


God damn I love that show

This adds a new dimension to it. They don't really need to fight, they only have to sit somewhere and wait for the opponent to explode.

Honestly, the only good thing about DBZ was the character development.



nah the only good thing was Vegeta


they ruined all the other characters in DBZ, especially Kuririn and Yamcha

Yes, and the only reason Vegeta was so awesome was because of how well they devoloped his character.

Piccolo is also a noteable mention.

Gohan just failed as he got older though.

noo they gave piccolo a soul

he was the original badass, killin innocent people and being able to make demons and to grow about 50x his original size

Vegeta was just awesome cos he became what piccolo was in DB

as far as im concerned DBZ doesn't even fit with Dragonball canon

i mean Goku was just a monkey boy, and piccolo an evil demon they shouldn't have gone all sci-fi

I loved pickles transistion. The start of DBZ he was still evil, though his descision to change was a bit sudden it worked pretty well. His whole falling pedophillic towards Gohan was awesome. And he fused with Kame, etc etc. I enjoyed his story. His eventual death in GT was done well too. I felt it was a fitting end.
#38
My favorite saga was probably one of the first few.

Krillin, Yamcha and Tien? Yeah, they ruled.

Minor characters FTW.

Pfft nothing in GT was good, Dragon Ball Z was the authors intended ending and it wrapped every thing up perfectly.

GT was a money making scheme that pissed all over DB and DBZ's great legacy

Truth. Tien has always been my favorite. Standing up against Cell with no chance for winning. He's got balls. Probably the only character to match Goku in spirit, even if not in strength.
