I really hate enforcing rules in a thread, but you gotta pick either the whole saga or a different one.

I was making fun of the speedy dub. I'm honestly not sure what they go with.

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.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

I'll take on a few arbitrary groups with a simple reason.

0. Tenshinhan tournament into Piccolo Daimao - Tenshinhan's journey.
1. Piccolo Jr. tournament into Saiya-jins - Piccolo's development.
2. Cell games into Great Saiyaman and Babidi - Gohan's rise and fall.
3. Majin Boo and Fusion into the end of Dragon Ball - A passing of the torch.
4. Battle of Gods and their training into Resurrection of F - A new realm of power.
5. Universe 6 tournament into Copy Vegeta - The expanded roster and abilities.
6. Emperor Pilaf into Kame-senin's training and tournament - The series' introduction.
7. Red Ribbon Army into Fortuneteller Baba and Goku's training - A long development.
8. The aritificial humans into Cell becoming perfect - The timelines' introduction.
9. Trunks and Goku Black into Zeno and Zamasu - A mystery across time and space.
A. Namek into Freeza and his death by Future Trunks - Development of the alien races.
B. Black Star Dragon Balls into Super Baby - The adventure in space and exotic settings.
C. The Shadow Dragons into the end of GT - A nostalgic departure and mystic development.
D. Hell on Earth into Super Android 17 - The characters' closure and cameos from the studio.
E. Tarble into Abo and Kado - Harmless midquel with good animation and no connection.
F. Episode of Bardock - Another look at Goku's father and the legend that he helped build.

Again, I really, really hate enforcing rules in a thread, but either pick the entire Cell saga and a another one or I'll count your votes as, Cell, King Piccolo, Saiyan and Future Trunks.

1. Saiyan
Specifically when Nappa and Vegeta arrive. Last time characters like Chiaoutzu and Yajirobe get involved in battle, Piccolo's character arc, last time we see the great ape transformations, and the humans get a few brief moments to shine before being put out of commission.

2. Namek
Krillin doing his best Solid Snake impersonation, The Ginyu Force, watching Vegeta get the smug kicked out of him by Zarbon and then Recoome, Frieza's forces were just a bunch of fun quirky henchmen and some of the best in the series.

3. Zamasu
Zamasu is tenacious, and somewhat unique in that he thinks he's doing the universe a favour. Trunks manages to get a few moments where he looks very impressive, and I liked the idea of an immortal opponent used to maximum effect.

4. 22nd Budokai
Some of the best battles in the series. Highlight is obviously Goku Vs. Krillin, but we also get introduced to Tenshinhan and Chiaotzu, the Crane vs. Turtle School rivalry, Krillin and Yamcha first showcase the ability to manipulate ki here, etc and it's Roshi's last fighting role...until RoF anyway.

5. 21st Budokai
Bias as hell; but this is where we meet my favourite character in Krillin, and watching him and Goku become friends and grow stronger was a big highlight of the entire series for me. The tournament itself had a few excellent fights; Goku vs. Namu and all three of the eventual Turtle School pupils vs. the mysterious Jackie Chun.

Alright, considering the fact that I'm done puking my heart out, and that voting is almost over, I'm doing my list.
1. Saiyan saga.
2. 22nd tournament (That ending is fine Doctor.)
3. Goku saga.
4. Boo arc.
5. Freeza saga.
Tomorrow, we look at the arc's that got no votes.

Thankfully, I can do mine without giving away anything in Dragon Ball Dissection!

1. Red Ribbon Army: Best adventure in the series. The world is at its most interesting, providing a veritable smorgasbord of fun places and things to do. Manages to weave together comedy, action, drama, battles to save the world, and even a tournament. Goku also really comes into his own, and despite the fact that it's often touted as the most Goku-centric arc, a lot of the other characters have fine moments too.

2. Saiyan: Best fighting in the series. The final series of fights, especially, create a feeling of dread not found anywhere else in Dragon Ball. While Goku is absent for a large part of it, he still feels relevant, and both Raditz and Vegeta serve as thematically appropriate villains for him.

3. 22nd Budoukai: Best tournament in the series (although sometimes I could go for 21st). There's a palpable sense of growth here, the first time such a feeling is explored in DB. It turned what could have been a stale rehash into a fun reunion. The themes of growth and passing the torch are handled well, and nearly all of the battles are just very fun.

4. The Hunt for the Dragon Balls: A whole lot of fun. There's no excess baggage, nothing that doesn't need to be there, nothing that isn't perfectly tied up. There's a great mix of action and comedy. There are a wider variety of problems to be solved and challenges to overcome than any other point in Dragon Ball. And as such, there is a better ensemble of characters with a wide variety of skills and personalities than any other point in the series.

5. 21st Budoukai: For an event that really has no stakes, this is surprisingly engaging. If the main narrative message of the series is to better yourself, then this arc is the best example of that. It has the best training and the best feeling of progressing through the fights. There's a wider variety of opponents, since this is before the cast became overcrowded, and that lends itself to the somewhat unique situation of a minor throwaway character having his own subplot, which is very refreshing.
Do you follow the most comprehensive and entertaining Dragon Ball analysis series on YouTube? If you do, you're smart and awesome and fairly attractive. If not, see what all the fuss is about without even having to leave Kanzenshuu:
