    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!

Personally i enjoyed dragonball much more than Z because dragonball was funny and was generally a better cartoon than Z. My reason for disliking dragonball z is because even early on it became incredibly ridiculous and stupid. Also the pacing was incredibly slow and the fighting in it was stupid.

I like DB more because it was funny and more believable action scenes than Z did. And DBZ just got really stupid and repetitive.

I hate to break it to you, but there's a lot of people who don't even know the original series existed.

As for me, I prefer the manga to the anime, so I get the best of both worlds anyway. You can't have one without the other, since in the case of the manga, it's one massive tale.


"I am the bone of my sword
 Steel is my body and fire is my blood
 I have created over a thousand blades
 Unknown to Death, Nor known to Life
 Have withstood pain to create many weapons
 Yet, those hands will never hold anything
 So as I pray, Unlimited Blade Works."

The manga of the original series was the first 16 of 42 volumes. In the Japanese version, there is no Dragon Ball Z manga... it's all just Dragon Ball. So yes, it is one massive tale.

And though the anime does pad things out a bit much at times with filler, it was rarely as bad as you're depicting. Especially since some of the filler was genuinely good (Goku and Piccolo driving was just filler, and was just about as funny as some of the best moments from the original series).

May those people have shame from bringing shame to DB
A lot of that is simply because DBZ got brought over to the US first, sadly.

When it comes to the anime?
I probably prefer Z, simply because I've only seen the original series with the dub (which is pretty mediocre), and I haven't seen the entirety of it.

That being said, if I were to get my hands on the original series on disc, which I plan to eventually, my opinion could change.

Or I could buy it, and own it legitimately, because it looks nice in a DVD collection, and because I prefer to legitimately own something generally.
Besides, it's not like it's expensive and difficult to track down.

I really can't pick one.

I liked the lack of unpropocional destruction and the fun moments from Dragon Ball but DBZ had a more serious and intense story (at least in my opinion) and I could feel more touched through the series.

I definitely preferred Dragonball over DBZ. Enjoyed the storyline much more and it wasn't as serious and all about "omg the world/universe is going to end" I love both but I enjoyed the humor and character depth that was used in Dragonball. It kinda sucked in DBZ when all the main characters from DB were tossed to the side and honestly for the most part useless or forgotten. Unless you are saiyan in DBZ you were useless. And it appears as the storyline continues in DB Battle of Gods/ Resurrection of F. Unless you are Goku and sometimes Vegeta you are useless. Even Gohan isn't relevant anymore :/

I do hate that too from DBZ but I got distracted and forgot about it completely. Gohan literally get's tossed aside by Buu as soon as he turned Super Saiyan 2. He then does put up a fight against Super Buu but he still lost misserably and he's my favorite character from the series. I hated that "Goku is the one and only hero and the other just help him a little bit by lending him energy" and the "only Saiyans are strong" policy.

Still, DBZ is really good and enjoyable but having Toriyama do that pissed me off a little.

  • Sir, Finishing This Fight.
  • I am a: Kaioken Master
Dragon Ball was better than Dragon Ball Z. Dragon Ball had better fighting scenes, comedy, and morals. The techiques in Dragon Ball were more diverse than in Z. Many techniques like the Kamehameha became too generic in Z. Characters such as Yamcha, Tien, Master Roshi, and even Chaozu had much better roles in Dragon Ball than in Z. Z became too focused on Saiyans or just alien-like creatures in general.

Dragon Ball Z had more intense fighting but i couldn't actually see the fighting half the time because they vanish and when they aren't vanishing they scream at the top of their lungs or shoot some kind of ki blast. Dragon Ball Z also had better character development. Vegeta had the most character development throughout Z. Z also had more memorable villains such as Frieza, Cell, or Majin Buu.

Sorry for anything usual in my post. I'm typing on my phone.

Both are cool but I like Z more than the original, it's more intense in fighting and it have new skills that are bigger. And bigger is better lol(my opinion ofc). And u don't need to be saiyan to be strong, u just need to be alien to be strong or don't wanna be useless

The thing I don't like about dbz is that the comedy is almost nonexistent and the "sagas" are incredibly predictable. And the action is crap compared to db

I prefer Dragonball over Z.
Its goofyness was over the top. Goku always tappin' the bottoms of people to check what gender they have. Agreeing to Marriage while not even knowing what it is, pullin' off Bulma's Top so Roshi is firing his Nose-Blood-Fountain.
I could list more, but there are way too many moments, where I just laughed my bum off. xD

I also prefer the fights. They were more intense, unpredictable and IMHO better written than any Fight in Z. I also liked, that every Character had his own set of Techniques. Sure, they later shared some of them, like Dodonpa, Taiyoken, Flying and/or the Kamehameha, but everyone had his own Fighting Style and usage of these Techniques. Something I really miss(ed) in the "Z Arc".

Also 23th Tenkaichi Budokai. 'nuff said. =P
