I agree, but DBZ is still good.
Plus Bulma was in her prime.

Tien could fly
Animal people never went away

Fuck you Dragon Ball was hilarious.

When was it ever hilarious?

The real reason Dragon ball > Dragon ball Z is the far lower power level of everything. Guns where a legitimate danger to a sizable portion of the cast and normal humans where relevant. Granted most of the time the normal humans (ones that couldn't chi a beam together) where relevant to foil how strong main cast members where.

DBZ on the other hand starts with a threat of the entire world dying to the hands of one being. Vegetta blows up an entire planet and moon on the way to earth. (without charging I might add. He does it casually.)

So right from the get go DBZ decides to be superman level and to try to one up itself in threats / power levels the rest of the way through.

Mind dragonball has always been a little nuts.

>>121976956
I don't know what you're implying.
If you're saying DB had better fights than DBZ, then you are right.
DB had actual fighting, DBZ was only powerlevels bullshit, invisible because human eye can't follow, who has the bigger ki attack.
Boooring.

>>121977016
Pretty much this, but I forgive the Namek ark because it allows to reach the super sayian stage which is iconic.
Anything after that is pointless.

Will Viz ever release uncensored/unedited versions of Dragon Ball or should I just double down and buy the Vizbig editions?

Nah, they actually advertised the 3-in-1s as "uncensored" so they are filthy liars and will never change.

Goku met someone who could casually blow up the planet way back when he was just a child.

I feel like DBZ is the perfect example of over-explaining/over-developing something. It's nice when things can be simple and magical. Instead of just "Hey. The reason you have a tail is because you're an alien. The reason piccolo looks like this is because he's an alien. The whole reason you're strong is alien" instead of just...goku being some magic monkey boy. It almost feels like it cheapens his accomplishments because...OF COURSE he's powerful. He's part of a supreme race of warrior aliens.

It'd have been neat if Arale showed up again in Dragonball. Like just a short chapter during the android saga or something.She's such a fun character and I wish we got to see her and Goku interact more.

Come on son, it was funny and serious when it needed to be.

>>121976757
It didn't have 18 or Videl thus rendering it inferior

>>121976920
Just because it still has comic relief doesn't make it comedic

It had teen Bulma, Lunch, Mermaid, and Ranfan.
You lose.

I miss the Akira Toriyama that just loved to draw cute girls with heavy weaponry.
>>
>>121987605
I feel like his new style is really a downgrade from his early dragonball days even.
Everything new that he draws just looks inferior to his old stuff.
>>
>>121987753
It really does. Everything got stiffer and less lively. Also I kinda preferred it when Goku was muscular but not like...RIPPLING. Saiyan Saga Goku was my favorite version for that.

Having just read through the entire manga for the first time recently, I actually think that everything from the 22nd to the 23rd TB was the best overall arc of the story.

>yfw they changed Piccolo's blood from red to purple to pass him off as an alien rather than a demon
but you're definitely right OP, especially about the flying
there's a reason Toriyama had Goku's nimbus destroyed for a while until he got it back. he had to do more adventuring when he couldn't fly.
>>
I just finished Dragon Ball. The latter half of that was even much less enjoyable to me. It was almost completely serious. I loved the lighthearted, comedic, ecchi, fun first half.

Could I get some series recommendations similar to that first half?
>>
>>121991861
the first half of hunter x hunter before it gets all serious business
gon is partially inspired by goku. he has black spiky hair and the first thing he does is catch a fish larger than his own body
it's not a dragon ball rip off by any means though, just inspired by it
>>

Gash Bell?
>>
>>121992049
now that I think about it they did have a similar feeling
>>
>>121982762
tfw Dr. Slump and Arale chan will never be fully subbed
>>
>>121992309
Or the remake, which while it looks worse has 2-3 episodes with goku in them and I'm curious.
>>
>>121992309
The manga's fully translated, IIRC

So we're all agreed, right?

Red Ribbon (Blue > Tao/Red > Sivler/White) > 1st Tenkaichi Budokai > King Piccolo > Emperor Pilaf > Fortuneteller Baba > 2nd Tenkaichi Budokai > Piccolo Jr

Don't be such a pleb op

Fool! Tao Pai Pai could fly with ease!

nigger it's one and the same. The mood changed when the first timeskip happened, not when you started watching toonami.

and the later stuff has some solid martial arts in it, much better than lil' stubby limbs in the early days. read the fucking manga, idiots.

I liked the ending to Jackie Chun and Goku's fight.
