Good points all around. So then why do you think the series became so popular all over the world to this day?


It was a good Saturday morning cartoon. For children, it was perfect. An adventure with a child protagonist who was fairly likeable. It developed large fanbase of younger audiences and stretched out the anime to go last until it ended in 1997. Fans of the series stayed faithful for 9 years while retaining that good saturday morning cartoon feeling.

Sometimes, you don't want a good plot. You want a simple kick ass shounen. It's like watching a kung fu movie. The story can be pretty bad at times, but your in it to see someones ass get kicked.


And it just did it better than other shows of its kind?

i always felt that the gundam series was classic...i don't rememer there being anything like fighting in space with mobile suits or anything about controlling fighthing machines before the gundams...(someone please correct me if im wrong here)...but then after the gundam series there was stuff like zoids and yu gi oh... i think... and on the whole dragonball/z/gt debate, i dont think its a classic anime in the sense that it revolutionized anime, but it was definately a benchmark for shounen anime since it was so popular since it appealed to a lot of kids at the time..

How can you all forget Transformers?

sure Ranma was great, but once it was done it was done. After Transformers finished, it was brought back again with another great series, and then again and again, untill they opted to just recently do a movie, that was good as well.

so THE classic anime has to be Transformers

ok... lets see.

vampire hunter D. trigun, evangelion, kira, FLCL, ergo proxy, ghost in the shell movies, monster, fist of the north star.

can't think of any others that REALLY pushed other anime's in the past but... that should do it for now. if you want me to back any of them up just ask and i'll gladly do it.

No it wasn't a classic anime. Even if I didn't suck, it is still not a classic anime.
Classic anime has to set a standard of excellence. Even for those who consider Dragonball Z good, you cannot deny that it did not change the way anime was made. The only thing that stands out in Dragonball Z is its popularity. It did not set a standard of excellence like Akira or Neon Genesis Evangelion.


I think DB would be considered a classic anime.

Come on, the whole concept of the 'super human' in DB must have triggered off millions of other anime plots.

without DB we might not have animes lyk

-Naruto
-Bleach
-D.Gray-man
etc.

Without DB the supernatural abilities of humans present in lots of anime would not exist.
Thus annailating animes which include humans with 'powers'.

I rest my case.

actually arx7arbalest is right... the whole DB series did not set a standard of excelence. you people are mistaking popularity for excelence. All DB brought to anime is shows that go on for months with little plot and mindless fighting all rolled into bad animation in general. It brought nothing to the anime scene that was not already there. shows like Fist of the north star, evangelion and vampire hunter D all had something to offer when they came out. they were fresh with new ideas and well done.

just one more thing, to say that DB brought on the idea of humans with super powers is pure ignorence. people have been talking about super humans for centuries. there are thousands of books that delve into humans with superior abilities. I think that if DB had never existed shows like the one's you mentioned would still be in existance.

For me personally, id say
GITS [revolutionary since i believed it made the animes more depth and a greater understanding perhaps]
Akira
Patlabor[perhaps the introductory to Mobile suits?
Cooking master boy [being a cookery fan anime myself, i think this is what revolutionised the world of cooking animes, i.e. yakitate japan!]

Don't mean to start an arguement, but tell me if i'm wrong...hopefully we'll have a gretaer understanding!
