    you get 19+1+14+20+1 = 55 = 5x5 =25. Now mirror the number 25 and you get 52 = 5-2 = Illuminati pyramid has 3 sides. Santa = Illuminati confirmed!

I've noticed a lot of the members here were born around the same time Dragonball Z was airing in English, so I can't imagine any of them saw the original run. I dunno how often DBZ re-runs were, but I was curious how the younger (and even older) members got into the series.

I saw it on its original run for Cartoon Network. 'twas on at 5pm every day and I remember for the longest time Gundam Wing was in the slot just after it.

Me and my dad were channel surfing then we saw DBZ. (This was the episode when Piccolo and Goku fight Raditz) We started to make fun of the show because of Raditz and his weird since of style. Then we just started watching the rest of the episodes and we got addicted.

For me it was on "CheeseTV" which was on "free-to-air" TV in Australia.
It would be on at around 7:30am and i would watch it every morning before school.

I knew about about the series when I was really young from an older cousin who watched it and the video games, but I didn't really care about it until I started borrowing manga from the library. They had a bunch of volumes, most of them from before "Z". Eventually, I just ended up purchasing all of it myself. I didn't watch the anime until Kai started airing in Japan, so that was my crash course in it. I bought the Dragon Box sets when those came out, though, so I had something of an unusual introduction to the series.

I watched DBZ on Toonami with my dad, (watched it throughout the 3rd and 4th versions of Tom I think) anyway me and my dad watched all the DBZ episodes and movie specials. It was a hell of a lot of fun  :)

i actually i got in love with DB/DBZ 2 years ago.
My cousins finished it like 2-3 times , but i just didn't care a lot to watch it with them(i regret that now).
One close friend (arround 800km away though) saw it arround 2 times .
So i just said to give it a try , i loved it from the first episode of DB.
Thats how i got to DBZ and later into anime

It was 11 or 12 years ago, I was 13, 14 years old.. I dont know.. I saw RTL2 (its a german channel) and there was at 19:00 DBZ and it was the end of the cell saga/begin of the buu saga and then it happend..... I loved it, every day on 19:00 I went to watch this, and if my parents banned me from watching tv because of mistakes I´ve made I was very sad, it was hell.

And 5 months ago I have watched the "rest" of DBZ, all sagas in 3 weeks and after this DB  ;D

11 years ago I saw 1st episode of the original dragonball and I didn't like it at first.
My friends all got hyped about it like everyone else around me. I though "Well lets give it a try.."
And my never ending love for DBZ started. We would even escape from school so we won't miss it.
I remember nolife budokai games, making dbz card, board games, parody manga and other dbz related stuff.

It had huge influence on me. It basically encouraged me to watch other anime and get to know Japan's culture better.
I am so inspired by my childhood memories with DBZ that in my free time I am writing my own manga.

All my friends grew up from DBZ and they can't understand why I am still so obsessed with it  ::)

As i said i don't really know how i started watching...i guess i found it by switching through the programms....but the rest of it is basicaly my story xD

Damn...i remember when the cards came out. Sooo epic. A good friend of me and i always ran to the school toilets during the Lunch break to make our Hairs up to the air with water. Then we went out and started fighting...real fighting...fist into his face etc. xD I think i was around 2nd or 3rd class xDDD Legendary times tho. Feel sry for the kids these days who are growing up with shit  :'(

Idk how old I was, I think I was too young to remember when I first watched it. But here in Italy they re-run it almost every year. ;D
It was on right after school so I watched it a lot of times... actually there is one now too, but in the evening. ;D

As a kid i watched it with my uncle i was like maybe 5,6,or 7 but unfortunately my uncle died when he was 14 (i was 7 when he died) Ever since then i've loved the show and till this day i think if my uncle was still here I'd have someone in my family who loves DBZ just as much as me and would understand me.
