I'm trying to watch this show but holy shit, this red ribbon saga is super fucking awful. Does the show get better after this? If not I'm just gonna skip to Dragonball Z holy fuck
>>
That's the peak of the series (For the entire series both DB and Z)
>>
>>122472264
It's soo slow, jesus christ man I could runthat shit at 2x speed and I'd be bored out of my mind
>>
Does the retarded as fuck humor ever tone down?
>>
>>122472641
sounds like the show isn't for you, you probably just want mindless powering up if you want to skip to z
>>
>>122472585
>It's soo slow
You're problem is with being a Toei adaptation.
On average the DB anime adapts 1.3 chapters per episode which is terrible. DBZ is 1.1. So you should read the manga it's much much faster.
>>
>>122472585
He's lying. Red ribbon arc was boring even when I was a kid. Tournaments are the best part. Just skip through it.
>>
>>122472585
Read the manga, fortunately the scans of it are pretty good. The Red Ribbon anime adaptation is slow as shit and it's already a long ass arc.
>>
>>122472885
Z was worse.
>>
If you're planning on skipping filler

79-83
127-132 and
149-153

are all filler arcs.
>>
>>122472641
Yeah, it pretty much vanishes after Baba. You're not going to have a good time during the majorly extended Dr.Slump cameo though.
>>
Red Ribbon Army arc in the anime was on average 1.1 chapters per episode and 25% filler.

Read the fucking manga.
The only people who actually like the Dragon Ball adaption are kids who grew up with it in the 90's and have a lot of nostalgia for it. The pacing is fucking garbage, it's poorly animated and it doesn't benefit much from the addition of music and voice acting.

>>122472641
Dragon Ball is a goofy comedy with over the top kungfu regardless of how much as the english side of the fanbase emphasizes the climactic final battles and sci-fi elements.
If you're not enjoying it by the first world tournament then you should just drop it.
>>
>>122472197
No.
>>
>>122472197
I fucking loved the Red Ribbon arc as a kid. Goku climbing that tower and meeting strong enemies was so goddamn captivating.
>>
>>122472585
Just drop it now, DBZ is known for its 30 episode long fights (majin buu was 60) and im talking literal back to fucking back nonstop fighting witb very littke plot, Goku's first SSJ3 transformation was him screaming and charging up for 9 fucking minutes.
>>
>>122476956
>9 fucking minutes.
The truth is bad, but you still feel the need to exaggerate it. Why? And stuff was actually happening throughout the four minutes. It was a pretty intense scene.

>>122472197
Read the manga.
>>
>>122472197
Seriously read the manga if you don't like it.
>>
>>122472197
>Watching dragon ball

Did I somehow go back in time to 1999? No? Then read the fucking manga.
>>
It gets better when the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai starts
>>
>>122480459

Unless an anime adaption is godawful shit like Tsukihime, there is no reason not to watch an adaption.

You're getting a lesser experience and feeling smug about it.

it might be slow but its my one of favorite arcs by far.
>>
>>122480795
The anime is shit. They took 13-15 page chapters and stretch it into an episode just so they could avoid catching up to the manga. Imagine if HxH 2011 and Brotherhood had double the episodes, it would never get recommended.
>>
Keep watching or read the manga from the beginning. The 22nd Tournament arc and the Piccolo saga are fucking amazing.

Long running shonen anime are ruined by horrible pacing. It's the issue you run into when the manga is ongoing at the exact same time and you need to avoid catching up.
Even the best shonen adaptions tend to suffer from the issue and very few of them are better than the source material because of it. Especially anything made by Toei, because both Dragon Ball and One Piece become practically unwatchable in their late arcs.

>You're getting a lesser experience and feeling smug about it.
Animation as a medium isn't inherently better than comics.
They have their own unique strengths and weaknesses and which a story is more suited for should be decided on a case-by-case basis, not generalized.

didn't DB manga ran for like 2 years before the anime adaption?

I don't remember RR being so bad. i pretty much blazed through the entire series in a week tho.

Hoo boy, you're in for a wild ride.

>>122472641
Nope. You may as well drop it now.

boy you learn something new every day.

The spirit bomb actually hit, it just didn't do anything. It's arguably the most worthless ability as canonically, it never worked against any opponent.
>>
>>122472641
>retarded as fuck humor

Explain.
>>
>>122482515
Well, the entire plot of Goku and Chi Chi finding the fan to save the castle is filler. The manga goes from the Piccolo fight straight into Raditz.
>>
>>122482576
i haven't read the manga, so Buu didn't die from it?
>>
>>122482667
He did eventually, but when Goku first threw it at him he was able to push it back. Dende wished for Porunga to restore his energy so he could finally destroy Buu.
>>
>>122482629
gotta say the manga doesn't sound very good. it's almost too quick. i've seen some key moments from the anime in the manga and they were pretty disappointing. like Goku's SSJs transformation was like like 2 panels. at least the anime built up the drama a bit.
>>
>>122482434
It started about a year and a half after or something.
If I remember correctly it was only a few months behind the manga by the end of the Red Ribbon Army arc, though the pacing didn't start getting unbearably really bad until Namek.
>>
>>122472197
Am I the only one who liked the filler in the Red Ribbon saga? I felt like they developed the villains a little better, and made for some entertaining scenes.

>>
>>122482761
Yet most people complain about the characters charging up, screaming and standing around staring at each other forever. That's anime only.
>>
>>122482761
There are people out there that hated Kai just beacuse they cut off filler.

I even knew people that hated that
>>
>>122482891
Why was Blue the only person in the RR army who could actually fight?
