Dragonball z is the best

first comment in 2012 then 2013 then 2014 and 2015 and I write this in 2016 :D

Well now I've watched this series in its entirety for the first time since the age of nine. I'm not even sure where to start if I'm being honest lol. It definitely shifts away from the sense of adventure that the original Dragon Ball series had practically immediately with a much bigger focus on battles. It also steps away from the Mystical elements of the original series and goes toward the Sci-Fi genre for 2/3rds of the series but it goes back to the Mystical genre for the last 3rd. While there are plenty of funny moments they tend to be confined to mostly filler episodes due to the fact that DBZ takes a much serious tone than DB. The fights can get pretty intense and a lot of the times the villains keep you on the edge of your seat having you wonder what could possibly they do next or what kind of transformation they could have. While I can definitely see why so many love this series I actually still prefer DB over DBZ. I won't go too much into each part of the series but each one of them gets a plus from me. They start off by completely changing the series by showing that there's an Alien backstory to all of it and immediately showing just how serious it all is, by going as far as to have a character die early off in the series. The Saiyan saga brings along everybody's fav. Saiyan: Vegeta, who along with Piccolo has possibly the best character development. Frieza's possibly the most despicable (while somehow still having some charm) villain in the series, the more you learn of him the more you want to see him go down saga contains what's possibly the most iconic moment in the entire franchise with the debut of Goku's Super Saiyan form. Cell is incredibly terrifying, especially in his first form feeling like something out of a monster movie, he's also quite possibly the most arrogant DBZ villain which made his defeat most satisfying and extremely unique by having someone other than Goku defeat him, it's possibly the best ending for all of the sagas. The Majin Buu arcs shifts it to Mystical themes and somewhat silly elements we saw before in DB, introducing god-like characters, and the Fusion techniques. While some may dislike the Buu sagas I still love them, I really felt it was a much needed change after the first super serious parts of the series and hey it starts getting more serious as it goes. Majin Buu starts off as a silly villain, to a much more serious threat but still comedic and ending with a chaotic psychopathic Looney Tunes kind of animal. Buu ends up reaching levels of accomplishments that no other villain reaches and somehow still manages to be the "most fun" villain. I wouldn't even say any of the arcs are bad, they are all enjoyable and they all have their ups and downs. Personally I really dislike the ending....You'd think that in the end Goku would finally develop a sense about the importance of family and actually learn to love and appreciate his own family in the same exact way that they love him. But instead we get "Leaving to train this stranger, bye guys!" For god's sake, why even leave his family when he could literally teleport to train the kid? One of my issues is that in the Majin Buu arcs there are a lot of...well asspulls that conveniently come out of nowhere with no hint. Some of them are even hyped up to the maximum levels but then they go on to amount to nothing, they don't really progress the story or they're just there. As a huge DB fan I can definitely say it makes me sad to see the original cast of characters just get more useless as the story goes along. Even Vegeta, who's a fan favorite unfortunately always seems to end up falling victim to the Worf effect and being a punching bag for the main villains. But the one thing I will never understand though is why would a "Passing the Torch" theme be hinted at and accomplished only to have the spotlight go right back to Goku for the last villain.... **Number of Filler Episodes:*42 out of 291. I wouldn't call all of the filler episodes bad it's just that I found a good majority of them to be....unmemorable. If I'm being honest I found the famous Driver's License episode, Gohan by himself in the wild and Goku's battle with Pikkon to be the most memorable filler moments. I also have to mention the Garlic Jr. filler saga not cause it's magnificent but that it's unique in the sense that it gives the spotlight to characters that aren't Goku. The filler episodes that I would have to say are horrible are the "Fake Namek" episodes. I'm sure you've heard all the stories that say how much this series drags on, and heard how it's sometimes referred to as "Drag On Ball Z". Let me just confirm that all of those stories are true. You would think that the filler episodes are to blame for this but the biggest issue with this series is the fact that a ton of moments are extended for as long as possible. You'll either have the fights be extended for as long as possible or have about 10 cuts during battles that go back to something that's kind of unimportant. Some examples are: Goku and Frieza's fight going on for 4 hours & 13 minutes, having an episode recap in the middle of the last fight with Cell, constantly cutting back to see what Mr. Satan is doing in the middle of the fights with Super Buu. Unfortunately when the battles get dragged on it sometimes ends up making them feel repetitive, I thought it was especially noticeable in the Super Buu fights. If you'd like to experience this without it feeling dragged out then you may want to watch Dragon Ball Kai. NO Kai is not censored, it was only censored by Nickelodeon when they aired it.

It is very, very slow paced. If it is your thing to watch slow paced shows, then it is good for you. It is heavy in action and the protagonist is decent.

Dragonball z is the beat

The cover for this show is wrong. The current image, featuring Goku in front of the show's various characters, was made for Dragon Ball Z Kai.

The Top Anime Classics To Watch Now (Including Dragon Ball Z)

Detective Conan

This anime is also known as “Case Closed” and as you can guess from its title, it is a detective series. The story has a twist, where the main character’s age has been reversed, so he looks like a child, instead of his own age. He gets into a lot of trouble while trying to solve his cases, especially because he is still only a high school student. He tags along with his best friend’s dad, who is actually a private detective.

Naruto Shippuden

This is one of the first animes I remember watching on my tv. The story follows a boy on his path to become the strongest ninja there is. In his way, there are many enemies that he must defeat in order to truly be the best there ever was. With a lot of enemies and also later some friends becoming enemies, it is a lot to deal with for anyone, especially for a young boy like him.

Hunter x Hunter

When Gon gets abandoned by his father, he must learn to navigate through life without him. His father is a well-known hunter and Gon decides to take after him and become a hunter himself. Besides wanting to look for animals, treasures and criminals, he is also determined to find his father as well. On his journey, he meets a lot of other hunters and encounters things he never expected to see.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
