Dragon Ball is better than Dragon Ball Z.
>>
>>148993829
Yes.
>>
>>148993829

objectively true.

except that red ribbon saga, which was indirectly also the worst part of Z
>>
>>148993829
Not really. Z has better characters, more entertainment value, and more memorable moments. Tip your fedora somewhere else.
>>
>OP unironically enjoyed Red Ribbon saga
>>
>>148993829
You can say that Z starts at the King Piccolo arc. The genre shift takes over after that point.
>>
Z has more character development and better scenes
>>
>>148993829
Everyone who isn't American already knows that.
Seriously, why did you guys get it AFTER Z?
>>
>>148993898
no need to tip anything. you just have terrible taste
>>
>>148993829
This is true. Toriyama is much better at writing comedy than serious stuff
>>
>>148994131
Even the serious bits in db are better.

>>148993829
Is this even controversial? Once you take off the nostalgia goggles, Z is awful.

>>148993898
>Z has better characters, more entertainment value, and more memorable moments
If your idea of entertainment is long stretches of boring filler and recycled plots maybe. Z had some great characters, but so did Dragonball.

I thought this was a well known fact.
>>
>>148994207
Yes, and DB overall has a better balance between serious and funny. And the serious isn't edgy teenage boy stuff like in Z.
>>
Literally the same thing
>>
>>148994374
I wouldn't say it's awful, it has some really good moments. But yeah, overall it's quite mediocre. Each arc is pretty much a long fight on the same devastated arena, with a lot of filler in between. Where did the adventure go, Toriyama?

He probably forgot it.

>>148994380
Man Chi Chi was perfect back then. Another reason DB>DBZ/S.
>>
>>148994450
I blame absurdly high power levels. Turned every fight into a dick measuring contest and rendered everyone who wasn't a Saiyan irrelevant
>>
DB had gr8 fanservice too.

literally not.

Well of course, it's the one that came out before the other and is thus OBJECTIVELYâ„¢ superior. Anyone seeking true, intellectual discourse on the internet must recognise this fact.
>>
>>148994051
Wait, what?
Americans got Dragon Ball AFTER Z? What kind of fucked up logic is that?

Dr. Slump > Dragon Ball

>>148994051
>>148995244
Ashtually, the original Dragon Ball was dubbed first by Funimation, but they only aired 13 episodes before they decided to skip over to DBZ. It's only when DBZ was moved from syndication to Toonami (around the time Super Saiyan Gokou debuted) when they decided to try again with the original Dragon Ball and everyone pretty much treated it as DBZ: The Early Years.
>>
>>148995809
That's some fucked up shit. I can't imagine starting DBZ out of nowhere. No one found strange the series starting mid-story out of nowhere?
>>
>>148993829
>ITT stupid animefags
They're both shit, read the manga faggots
>>
>>148995899
Kids just want to watch cool fights anon
>>
>>148996093
this
>>
>>148996093
But DB manga is great
>>
>>148995809
>Dr.Slump > Dragonball
Fucking this
>>
It's the same story, but it reaches more epic peaks in the second half. The "Z" half.
>>
This is the worst /a/ meme.
>>
>>148995085
agreed. DB is superior
>>
In fun, adventures... yes.
>>
The only ones who prefer DBZ are probably butthurt Vegeta fags. The sense of adventure is so lost in Z due to the stupid power level shit.

Niggas, Red Ribbon WAS the best arc in the whole fucking manga.
>>
>>148993829
DB just feels better.
Also, it doesn't take 7-29 episodes to finish one fight.
>>
>>148995809
Why is New Dr. Slump so much better than the original?
>>
>>148994617
>DB
>Maron
>>
>>148999243
Little Goku going apeshit and leveling the entire RR compound was fucking dope. Even better that it didn't take 50 episodes.
>>
Both shit
>>
>>148995899
>No one found strange the series starting mid-story out of nowhere?
thats your average american weeabo for you
that is one of the reason why any american opinion DB-related must be discarded as soon its made
>>
>>148993829
They are both great. Period.
>>
>>148994531
>Man Chi Chi was perfect back then. Another reason DB>DBZ/S.
Of course. She was younger. Yo do know that human beings tend to get uglier as years pass by, do you?
>>
>>148999685
Have you watched them recently? I had fun throughout DB, DBZ on the other hand had strong parts but made me feel bored a lot.
>>
>>148999655
What can you expect from people who say Faulconer's music is better than the original?
>>
I've had this song in my head for over 20 years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFGY-PciwFU
>>
>>148999850
You and me both friend.
>>
>>148999783
>Faulconer's music

So, americans got the show started half-way and they also had changed music?
Poor guys.

They'll never know the pleasures of the godlike soundtrack:

>>
I think the Buu saga is pretty much something straight out of Dragonball, and is better than a few arc in Dragonball.

I don't get why people hate, it especially if they liked Dragonball.

Kai > DB > Z

Us Americans got cucked when it came to DBZ
>>
>>149000054
It's just too fucking long, DBZ would have been a lot better if it lasted 150 episodes instead of 300
>>
>>149000156
It should have ended after Namek.
>>
>>148993829
You're not taking any risk with this one OP.
>>
>>149000156
That's literally what Kai does.
>>
>>149001148
They just had to go and blow it by putting the shitty crops on the blurays for the last bit instead of sticking with 4:3.
>>
>>148999588
Didn't it all take like just one episode? Maybe one episode extra for the final fight against Black and the aftermath. That was some tight pacing, short and memorable.
>>
>>149001936
Something like that yep, DB was really good.
