because back when DBZ was popular most anime watchers today are still kids and DBZ was the only anime airing world wide
so kids in the old days has no choice but to love DBZ

Well not all DBZ fights are like you said,for example the Goku and Cell fight was pretty well animated and so was the Picollo and vs Android 17,Gohan and Buu fight is also a perfect example.The show was also full of suspense and managed to catch our attention.Also the characters were likable and the show was light hearted,no melodrama bs that you find in most anime nowadays.

It's beyond me. I never liked DBZ because I could see the awful pacing of the show. Even when it was on Toonami way back when I never watched it. I opted to go with anime that is...well...good. Stuff like Gundam Wing, Ronin Warriors, Tenchi, and ESPECIALLY Outlaw Star, still one of my favorites to this day.

I'll argue to my dying day that DBZ--while it gave Toonami incredible ratings--also killed it in the long run.

I dont get entirly what you hope to gain from this thread? are we supposed to sell you DBZ so you will like it? Theres a ton of animes out there im sure you can find something you enjoy :)

I see reasons like goku is a great role model, always looking to take the biggest challange he can and overcomming it. Being the strongest but willing to be friends to even your worst enemy. Some of the first and fairly origional fighting, that dosent end in half an episode but over the course of many. Having a power that in my eyes is untoppable by all other powers. And having that long progressive storyline that many of us were able to grow up enjoying.

I think the best thing you can learn from this is, if you dont like something, dont watch it <3

And I guess if you wanted to know what others found good that you didnt then I hope I was able to answer that as well ^^

repeat but doubt anyone is ganna care.

a first most likely, i like it but not in love with it.
one of the only good anime in america, decent dubs compared to many
doesn't drag as much in the romantic talking sense, the battle do drag but that what keeps most peoples interest
simple minded fun

Because its a fun adventure in a fun world. Maybe you will like it more if you see "Dragon Ball" first, and then watch the "Z" series.
You should give it more of a chance before you jump to conclusion, trust me its a great show!

Title: why do people like haruhi

Just as it says. I mean I have seen it.

But i mean come on its not good.

It takes like forever for something to happen and all the dialogue is really lame. all it is is people yelling and then random stuff flashing around the screen. if you don't believe me try to go back and watch the entire haruhi series.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't watch it. im just wondering what you see in it that is so good. In fact some of my friends love haruhi. (not very true)

+ Please dont post things like "STFU haruhi CANS BLOWS UP DE UNIVERSE!!!!!"

++ i have seen haruhi.

I'm sure you can tell I'm bashing haruhi its an anime done bad.


I fail to see the point in your comment. I put this post up because I was wondering why people actually like DBZ. if they are seeing something i'm not.

Your comment is just copying my comment, for what reason?

To get across the point that you didn't like Haruhi?

Because you wanted to sound smart?

Because you wanted to post something but didn't know what to say?

Or is it because you wanted to prove that each person has there own opinion on the matter?

I would be interested to hear your reason for being such a douch bag.


Actually let me tell you a quick story before I reply to your post.

I once sent an e-mail asking a question, and the reply I received back was: Yes.

End of true story, so my reply to you is:

No.

Personally, I watched it for the hilarity. Somethings, like the filler, were boring then. But in hindsight it gives DBZ character. That's not to say other shows should take after DBZ and take forever to get to the action, they shouldn't. But there's a certain magic to joke about how long it took to charge the spirit bomb.

DBZ is stupid, it's so stupid. But it has enough stupid to have it's own charm, and on top of that, there's much worse anime.

It's no where near my favorite series anymore like it used to be(plus Dragon Ball is better) but it's still decent and has some good fight scenes that don't drag on forever(Goku vs. Vegeta, Piccolo vs. 17).

As far as the not going anywhere for long periods, well just about every shonen does that(Bleach, Inuyasha, etc). That's why it's been a while since I got into any of them.

lets put it this way without DragonBall series then Naruto and One Piece would have not been created or will be vastly different than it is today.... the mangaka of Naruto and One Piece stated that Dragon Ball manga was very influential to them and help them dream of creating a similar manga that we all enjoy today

and not only Naruto and One Piece most shounen series now a days have some influenced from DragonBall too
