Post by DHM211 » Thu Jul 19, 2012 1:35 am

I just finished watching 25 hours worth of DBZ! Basicly for this thread you write the longest you'v watched DBZ for and what you episodes/Movies you'v watched. I just watched DBZ for about 25 hours with no sleeping and I watched DBZ season 4,5,6 and DBZ movie 9 bojack unbound.

The longest for me was for FUNi's "season 2" set. I'm not sure how long exactly it was but I watched it all back to back with no breaks.

It was definitely a full days worth, but I'm not sure of the exact hours. It all becomes a blur after a while, you know?

Particularly if it's "sunny"?

I don't believe I've spent an obscene amount of time watching DBZ, maybe one or two discs when I either hadn't seen the episodes for quite a few years or, in the case with latter DBZ, I hadn't seen the FUNimation version.

But I think it's safe to say what I would consider a "marathon" is nowhere near the amount of time others have invested into it.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

Day 3 is when the hallucinations start! Not fun times, especially if you're not preoccupied.

I could stay up two days easily, but I'd never be insane enough to watch DBZ the whole time. The most I ever have is probably three or four hours in a row.

Don't have the patience for it anymore. But back then, I think I watched an entire, or a good share of an Orange brick for a couple hours a couple years ago.

I watched the entire series of Evangelion within a day, but have never watched any DB series that long. I remember reading through the entire manga at one time when I couldn't get up from the bed because of lower back strain, though.

Not for Z, but for DB it must have been something like 22 hours during the summer of last year. I had a few days to kill and I wanted to watch the series so badly through the second tournament. So engrossing that I could just let it sit with a couple episodes a day. Within 22 hours, of course, I went beyond just that one saga.

As for Z, I really don't recall, although it had to have been Kai sometime a few weeks ago - 15 hours. Not overkill, but enough to consume a day from morning to night.

Me and my BF once watched ten episodes of Dragon Ball straight (not Z). It was around the time I started to reintroduce to the series. He watched some parts of Z and GT but he never watched the first series. It was a lot of fun watching it together. We still watch DB on occasion when I'm not too busy.

I've never just sat there and watched Dragon Ball all day, but this is something I plan on doing.

Probably about 3 hours is the most amount of time I've sat and just watched non-stop.

I think, like Castor said a while back, I would marathon Dragon Boxes when I first got them. I probably watched an entire disc at time when I had the time. So I guess that'd be two hours, twenty minutes, give or take skipped openings and endings.

Just like Dragon Ball since Chapter #4.
