  • Anyone else burst out laughing when he said that a DRAGONBALL arc is the best shonen arc in anime history? The thought itself is a complete joke xD Let's be honest. The "story" in this series is absolutely horrible. If you can even call it a story. Not to mention that the characters arent even good either. And the powerscaling is complete bs too. It may be an iconic anime, but it really *isn't* a good one And yes, I randomly stumbled across this video and I had to add my two cents to it

    • @Young_Shaad Don't even bother, it doesn't matter if you completely disprove everything she said and prove that Dragon Ball is a top tier anime, she'll just call you a DBZ fanboy and keep spouting bullshit.

      Cozmix InfinityCozmix Infinity3 ngày trước
    • I mean while it isn't the best the 4 arcs that are S tier are back to back. From the king piccolo - freeza saga this is top notch quality shonen at it's purest so saying it is up there isn't wrong. Now I agree is it the best? No, but it is great in its own way and what basically set the standard, also its hard to have back to back banger arcs, most long running shonen cept maybe one piece and early naruto don't usually have that. Now from a db fan: powerscaling is fine throughout these arcs, now there are some power up bs that does happen but thats more so in the namek saga, if you have a hard time understanding the way they work thats your fault freeza is easily one of the best villains in shonen since you don't need to have this depth to a character for example like pain. Freeza does what he sets out to do and has a great personality. Piccolo character arc is also the big notable change and is also pretty well done. Saying dragon ball isn't good is a personal opinion, you can say it isn't all that but saying it's bad is objectively wrong.

  • I love dragon ball z I swear. The most influential anime ever. Probably exaggerating but I don’t care. When I watch this show all of my brain cells for complex narrative analysis instant transmissions to a different universe bcz I want to be a kid and pretend to blast shit away while I’m watching the show. Not saying the writing is bad but we can all agree it’s not trying to create some deep intellectual messages. It’s supposed to be fun with fun likable characters. Yea super takes a big nose dive when it comes to writing but Dragon ball isn’t supposed to have a deep message like I previously stated. It’s supposed to be fun and it does a good job at it even tho it may not be as good as DBZ

  • Buu being a bad guy was the whole point he is pure evil he has no objective killing people is fun for him and if you watch the cell saga cell's personality is actually present all over he is a cocky overpowered asshole he is thinks no body can beat him and gets beaten by a mere child! He is exactly like vegeta he is a less cocky vegeta we got an example vegeta gives semi perfect cell a chance to transform to perfect cell showing how he thinks he is the strongest and fails prompting him to change making him less cocky trunks is also one of the reason we love super Saiyan the fury the agony of future gohan's death makes him go super angry and go super Saiyan it makes me think trunks is exactly like Goku his friends are dead almost everybody on the planet he is fighting for is dead but trunks story is sadder even by transforming to super Saiyan he is no match whereas Goku was able to atleast save them by transforming trunks had to wait for a longer time then Goku black arrives showing the world the terror of the androids a 100 times more destroying his whole multiverse he in my opinion is the most tragic character ever

  • The reason Naruto had a timeskip is because Kishimoto was getting warn down keeping up with deadlines, so he wanted to redesign the characters to make them easier to draw. The timeskip was mostly just an excuse to do this in a natural way.

    • its where it all started... you cant compare it to any other shonen anime at that time... just take this an example... if your so called best modern shonen is so great.. why are they almost the same?.... because they took inspirations from the previous ones... you cant just compare the anime series side by side and not considering its time..... thats why dragonball should be considered as one of the greatest shonen anime ever created.. dragonball isnt generic... modern shone are generic.. dragonball started it all

  • Buu is great imo. He’s basically what happens if a godlike toddler throws temper tantrums. I like how in order to actually tame him Mr. Satan befriended him. Then adult buu is just so pure evil and sadistic I love him, and kid buu is all primal and just screams and punches himself.

  • gotta disagree about the naruto timeskip. if it was shortened to a few months, there wouldn’t be time for everyone in naruto’s class to become chuunin. the fact that everyone else is a chuunin is a big deal, and the chuunin exams only happen twice a year. it also DEFINITELY wouldn’t be enough time for neji to become a jounin or for gaara to become kazekage. i mean, he could have become kazekage whenever the village decided, but i doubt they would have made him the leader of the village when he was like 13.

  • I've always been of the opinion that the hardcore anime elitists who say Dragon Ball is a "normie anime" and thus not worth watching are just flat out wrong. The reason it is so popular not just in Japan, but here in the West too, is because it is legitimately one of the best, most influential, and fun anime you will EVER watch. It is fantastic and well worth anyone's time, even if you aren't an anime fan. It was my first introduction to anime when I was i kid, now i have hundreds of gigabytes of anime and manga on my computer. If nothing else, it is an excellent gateway drug.

  • To this day, I still think Super Saiyan should've been the peak of saiyan power. They'd just need to learn how to better control it and use it in more clever ways to fight stronger villains. Or if they really need to get stronger, the Kaio Ken allows for a multiplier with a tangible pro and con so that it can't be overused.

  • Gohan going SSJ2 > Goku going SJJ Also, Cell saga has way better character developpement. Or maybe just more satisfying. It's the culmination of Vegeta's and Gohan's character arcs, it explores the humans feeling useless with Tien and Goku finally acts like a father. Cell is a well developped villain also.

Sasuke is easily 10 times as strong as he was before, Sakura like 50 times since she is actually useful now, and Naruto was about 2 times stronger.

  • Wow this just blew my mind. It made me realize goku wants to BECOME the strongest fighter he can, vegeta wants to BE the strongest fighter there is. I know that's so obvious and most kids realize it by 12, but it makes so much sense to me now. Its why vegeta will never surpass goku (come at me), its outward based growth, gokus is inward.

  • Great video overall with the exception of the needless bash of Cell and Buu's characters, a lot of fans feels like Cell is actually the best, specially his brutal first form and his perfect form, his quest and obsession to achieve "perfection" is very interesting to watch, and Buu is exactly a force of evil, and thats what is cool about him, a real destruction force with no reason beyond that, like a hurricane or a meteor. I think all of the main villains in DB are very well done, even Raditz played his part perfectly.

  • I agree with the other transformations like ssj3 but ssj2 is really good because it was tied to an emotional string and made sense the emotional string was Gohan resistance to fighting he hated it he hated killing but he was tired off his friends getting beaten to the verge of death and the the final led that broke him was Android 16’s death which really pushed him over the edge because he was just like Gohan and this was elevated by cell who stands in direct contrast to Gohan he loves to fight and will kill on the fly he is powerful which makes him overconfident Gohan was also known for having unexpected bursts of power which is why the transformation makes sense it also signifies the end of his character arc

    Dragonic MasterDragonic Master2 tháng trước
  • I also don’t agree with piccolo having a better character arc than Vegeta sure I loved what toriyama did with piccolo but Vegeta was simply a more interesting character to see develop first off Vegeta’s character arc was much longer spread into different pieces for each saga we have the thought that he might be a good guy with his motivation crossing that of the heroes in the Frieza saga his acceptance of teamwork and proof that he does care for others in the cell saga and the fall arc and eventual completion of his arc in the buu saga. One thing Vegeta also has over Piccolo is his more relatable like many real people Vegeta was looked down upon other people they rid used him and the fact of even being looked down upon a lower class saiyan broke him. In the buu saga Vegeta was forced to choose between what he wants and what he needs and that is why we as the viewers were so affected because we knew he was making the wrong decision and when he finally admits to Goku being better than him it resonated intensely with the viewer. Last off Vegeta is much more compelling to watch than piccolo and even toriyama knew this, and piccolo is his favourite character, which I why he decided to have Vegeta as goku’s sidemen he had to make the decision between a harsh,stoic character or a brash cocky character which is why I think Vegeta is a better character but that’s my opinion.one thing I failed to mention in my original post is vegeta’s sacrifice which was one of if not the most emotionally rich moments in the entire series because it stood in direct contrast to the man we the viewers once knew and the thought of him dieting was like an old friend had passed.
