Having grown up with "Dragon Ball Z" and during my teenage years visiting the local Japanese video rental store and always in heavy anticipation of what was being shown on television in Japan that week and waiting the two weeks it would arrive in the US and watching it in Japanese, despite not knowing what was being said, I enjoyed the series tremendously.
The main protagonist Son Goku was Japan's equivalent to America's Superman. I'm sure the juxtaposition of both Superman and Dragonball can be seen as a baby from other planet comes to Earth, the baby growing up to becoming a boy with tremendous strength and abilities and raised by a loving person who instilled good in his heart.
Granted, Goku's original mission when landing on Earth was to destroy humanity but learning kindness towards people, nature and animals, he became a hero that protected all that he loved from any evil. But most importantly, Goku was a character that was far from perfect. He was a character that was always learning about people, enjoying life but most of all, setting a goal to becoming stronger and developing his skills in order to protect the people and the planet that he loves.
I was captivated by the original "Dragon Ball" series (which featured Goku as a child) and later with "Dragon Ball Z" featuring Goku as an adult.Read more ›
Animation has been cleaned up, colors look fantastic, and audio is clear.
Even Mr. Toriyama himself intended for this to be the end! When you watch the episodes after the Cell Saga ends it just doesn't feel right anymore. Plot holes, sudden halfway plot switches, aborted arcs, continuity drifting and details getting confused, and that happens with long runners!
It's like diminishing returns, or knowing when to really quit when you're ahead. I admit to liking some aspects of the whole Buu saga but overall I don't think it's as strong a narrative because you have too much going on, too many characters and too much to keep track of. More isn't necessarily better, it's quality over quantity. After this I say jump onto the Bojack and second Brolly movies for an epilogue.
