Since the moment Broly was confirmed all I saw was pretty much "excitement, joy, booyah, hooray, boom shaka-laka" everywhere. If that was the case, I'm pretty sure I would see more people sharing my opinion, but this is not something I find everyday.

Hell, I was called "killjoy", "you want attention" and etc when I voiced my dislike about the new movie. That shows how excited people are in general.
I don't know what you are talking about. Everyone I saw hated the idea of Broly coming back including myself until I saw AT's interview

It doesn't happen immediately, hence "over time", and even DB had to take a long break after 10 years of continuous publication and airing on TV. Broly's initial run fizzled out by the third movie.

1. Z Episode 288/Kai Episode 165, despite being filler, is one of my favorite episodes, and is a far better conclusion to DBZ/Kai than the actual ending with Uub.
2. Super Episodes 130/131 are the best episodes of anything Dragon Ball related.
3. Resurrection ‘F’ gets far too much hate, and is actually a decent film.
4. GT episode 64 is a phenomenal way to end the series, and is in my top 5 Dragon Ball episodes.
5. Animation(or lack of it) aside, Super Dragon Ball hero’s has to potential to be a great series.
6. Sumitomo > Yamamoto > Tokunaga > Kikuchi.
7. The Soundtrack for Kai TFC is underrated and is actually pretty good.
8. The Tournament of Destroyers arc is probally the most boring and mediocre arc in all of Dragon Ball.
9. Goku SSJ Blue Kio Ken vs Hit is extremely overrated.
10. Berrus and Whis are overrated.
11. Episode 95 of Z/Episode 47 of Kai, while decent enough, is extremely overrated.
12. Kai, despite some sloppy editing here and there, is a far better way to experience “DBZ” than the original anime.

I agree with this 100%! Honestly, I usually stop the series here. I don’t hate the remaining episodes but I don’t think they wrapped things up well. I much prefer it to end on a slice-of-life “they’ll probably have more adventures but here’s the characters we love all back together again” vibe.

-the mark Menza GT opening &general the Dub Version destroyed GT‘s Image more than many people thought

-DBS is the best action&fighting Show but at the same time the most meaningless show in the franchise

- to fit DBS in the 10 years of peace is one of the biggest mistakes ever

-the SSB Transformation is the most boring transformation ever

-Baby is the best villain in the franchise

-Goku Black/Zamasu are better than any DBZ Villians

-Episode 35(DBGT) is the best episode i have ever seen

-Pan&Goku are one of the best Duos in the franchise

-DBGT has the best character designs imo

-Jiren is overrated&boring

I don't think these are unpopular as you think.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

*Zamasu's saga was placed inappropriately. It also should have been longer. At least 30 episodes. Which is funny because it is considered to have 30 episodes but the last 30 have nothing to do with him or Trunks except for the time machine episode in an indirect way.
*Dragon Ball GT was a lot more needed than Super was as it gave Dragon Ball an ending instead of a guy flying away with his student just because "it fits so much for Goku"; GT also has him flying away but there are a lot more things to it that don't give that "that's it?" feeling.
*Dragon Ball Z - Dragon Ball vol. 17-42 - is the worst part of all Dragon Ball.
*Goku and Vegeta are the Original True Pairing and its not like the show makes a secret out of it. And now even Freeza wants to be Goku's mistress.

Just acting naturally made his Zoro, All Might, Kai Piccolo and Armstrong sound great. Doing a goofy voice for Kuwabara, on the other hand, not so much. Just ugh. And I came across a clip of the Attack on Titan Season 2 dub where he played a moustached guy. He sounded more like a caricature than a character. And when it comes to Yamcha, he just overplays the loser aspect of the character.

I think that's the problem with multiple Dub voices of FUNimation when it comes to their Dragon Ball voices. they overplay one aspects of their character and largely ignore the other. that's why i have always preferred Fat Boo voice in Japanese because Josh Martin overplayed Boo's Childish side and made it his only trait and its so annoying to listen to the voice he makes along with the screwed up Third person Tone. Same For Kaio, Kame Sen'nin, etc.


I don't understand how many people can tolerate that grating voice.
actually majority prefers it over sub voice and i don't know why, they just say "it fits Boo's childish side".
I prefer Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, DB/Z/GT Movies, Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball GT in Japanese.
For DBZ Kai and two new Movies I like both Dub and Sub. I Prefer Shunsuke Kikuchi Soundtracks over All other Composers.

-Goku Black is the worst thing in Zamasu saga and entire arc would be a lot better without him
-SSJ Blue doesn't fit Goku at all
-SSJ God doesn't fit Vegeta at all
-Instead of SSJ God and SSJ Blue there should be just one SSJ God form, red haired for Goku and blue haired for Vegeta
-UI Omen looked a lot better than actual UI
-SSJ Rage and SSJBE are the worst forms in franchise and skipping them in manga makes it better (i mean we didn't get to SSJBE yet but seeing how even UI Omen is absent i highly doubt SSJBE will make it to the manga)
-DBS/GT Gohan is better than DBZ Gohan pre-Buu saga
-Gohan and Videl are the most developed characters in Super and the only ones that had noticable change since Z in both appearance and personality.
-DBS Videl is cool character despite not being what actual Videl is and should be (her EoZ/GT versions). Bad Videl, but good character on her own.
-Videl is my favourite DBS character

I don't recall him sounding like his Remastered take in the Kai Saiyan saga.

I feel Troy Baker, John Gremillion and Chris Patton would have done better jobs as Vegeta. His Piccolo I could take or leave; Travis Willingham would have been an excellent choice while Yamcha, probably Jason Liebrecht or Kyle Hebert.

I heavily agree, especially at SSJ Rage, that form is just nasty.

B-but Namek Saga Gohan is best Gohan, how could you!?

I find GT better then Supers manga and anime
Z is better the. Super is every positive category I can think of
OG English dub is way way better then Kai dub
SUPER 17 was an cool character
Goku black and zamsu are underrated in the manga and astronomically overrated in the anime
I consider some of db multiverse ideas to be better then the show (IE gokus mom)
I think multiverse is better then GT, super manga and super anime
I like ssj4 gogeta much more the. Ssj gogeta
Ssj4 is the best transformation in dragon ball history
I liked absolutely no one in the dbs anime and cared little about anyone of them whil I enjoyed characters like Kale, hit, goku while also finding goku black and merged zamsu interesting in the manga
Dragon ball is overrated

-the my Bulma scene in the anime is cringe (max level)

-Friezer has become a joke

-DBS Vegeta is the worst Vegeta in terms of character development

-DBS Gohan is the best Gohan

It debatable. The lore building from Z is done much better in multiverse but in terms of adding more memorable things to the franchise it is GT. I think multiverse is better, but the highs of GT easily exceed the highs of multiverse?

DBS GOHAN IS THE BEST GOHAN? Better be talking about dbs MANGA gohan, dbs anime gohan has like no persoanilitg and isn't cool. Like at all.
