I think it'd still be one of a kind, since a LOT of battle manga's were inspired by Dragonball.

Without dragonball, animes like Bleach, Naruto, Fairy Tale and Hunter X Hunter just wouldn't be around.

Well, it'd probably be like this all the time:

Ridiculously out of proportioned bodies, and it'd probably have a story like GTs, with thinly veiled excuses for the girls to wear next to nothing.

I think we'd have something as big a mountain of dreck as this:
Spoiler for Hidden:

(I realize that a lot of you like that series, but I don't. To me it's a mediocre, unending crap basket that thinks it's Dragon Ball without any of the style.)

While Dragon Ball had a little bit of fanservice (mostly at the start), it only used it for a minor gag. A bit of humor from time to time.

The series never distracted you with gigantic flopping boobs, except for the occasional bit of humor.
And as Zellion say, we wouldn't have a lot of these other series (which in some cases might be a good thing).
I'm glad that Toriyama made Dragon Ball when he did. All these Shonen epics that have come since are just a pale rip off (even when they tend to be good).

If Dragon ball was made in this generation I think it would be with better graphics and had good fan service, but then I would not have been played dbo.

Nice topic. I think Dragonball wouldn't have all the worldwide success it has, because nowdays young people have other 'interests'.

i believe both the anime and manga would have monster tits and the like, but the anime would have alot more, then the manga as that is usually the case.

Toriyama being 21-31 instead of 60, and that he isn't the forerunner for Shounen Manga, He'd most likely follow suit as it sells well.
Sure his fighting would be good, it might be similar to Maken-Ki, or Even Season 2 Rosario + Vampire (both manga don't watch anime as of much)

I read alot of manga and they all have good stories but it's 99% ruined by today's generation where Giant cow monster tits, sells extremely well.
Well not ruined, just ruined by the characters not having that deal of likability as they could kill you with them.

It's the issue with having characters being nicely drawn, but have mountains attached to them.
Google Images (Maken-Ki) for a good example, the art is lovely. the characters look good, the story isn't half bad, then you have the most cringy looking bodies.
for me atleast.



Or, Well it never changed, and he sets a new standard for manga. (again)

In that case dragon ball would just be an regular anime with no fans (well, not much of them).
I'm personally glad because dragon ball is drawn like it is

Filler! Don't forget Filler. Dragon Ball would definitely have more filler like animes nowadays.  :-\

I think you're missing the point. If Dragon ball came out now, it would very popular. Mainly because there wouldn't of been an anime like it.

Most well known mangka's have stated in interview that Dragon ball was their inspiration or what made them like manga's as a child.

So by this fact, most popular manga's (especially the big 3) wouldn't be around.

You have to think about everyhing really.

Sure Toriyama had his own style, but influenced everyone else,
But what if he was influenced by this style now?

Um, they already updated the animation. Did you see Battle of Gods?
And while it was mostly good, the CGI background were awful for the most part (as was the scene where an obvious CGI Goku clashed with Beerus).

To be honest, I'd prefer it to be drawn like the fight scene between Goku and Piccolo in the second movie rather than BoG's style (half the time, while you can recognize the characters, it just doesn't look like Toriyama's artwork anymore).

Also, isn't DBZ still pretty popular? I think the only reason why Kai gets mixed popularity results is because it's a rehash of something we've had for 20 years now. Had it been redone from the beginning, it probably would be the most popular current series.

But if it were just created in this era, they'd probably reduce the series to seasons. If it had filler, it'd be awful, but they'd probably just animate like the first 13 episodes, since that seems to be the method of half of these shows now.
Probably have it end with the first story arc in an ending that ties up no loose ends whatsoever.

Either that or, as SSJGGoku said, an endless parade of awful filler. Which would be sad, because while it had an awful lot of filler, other than clip shows, most of the filler wasn't offensive (except the Garlic Jr. saga).
Seriously, if you don't laugh at Goku and Piccolo trying to learn how to drive, there is something considerably wrong with you.
Also, the Super-Kaioken.

1. As mentioned, a lot of the great animes we have wouldn't exist due to lack of inspiration. (Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, etc.)
2. would have 2-3 seasons of 15-25 rushed episodes(Why we have so many fillers.(Though Bleach's many empty manga chapters don't help.))
3. If we have fillers, they would be less creative and less likely to tie or actually fill in to the current story.(Naruto, Bleach, etc.)
4. Lack of genuine art style.
5. I might not have found my love for anime! lol
