I don't know how, when the 21st (which includes Goku and Kuririn's training) had Goku, Kuririn, Roshi, Nam and even Yamcha to an extent developing as characters. The 22nd had Roshi (whose development wasn't even completed in that arc, but the Daimao and 23rd tournament instead) and Tenshinhan (same as Roshi). The 23rd then showcased how everyone grew up, Tao and Tenshinhan severing their bond for good, Kuririn's maturity and Goku's improvement, among other subtle changes to the other characters.
the best fights,
Are we completely ignoring the fact that Piccolo Jr. vs Goku exists or something?
and best atmosphere is considered the worst.
Best atmosphere in what way? The 21st was a friendly tournament and the 23rd was a battle to save Earth. The 22nd was something in the middle and it didn't seem to decide what it really wanted to be. It feels like the most pointless of the 3, you could easily cram Tenshinhan (or just scrap the character entirely) into another arc and nothing would be lost.

The 3 way tie fucked me up. It's fixed now.
The numbers are still wrong. Now we have 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, and 5.

I can't believe the Buu arc made it into the top 5.

It's great to see it get the recognition it deserves.

The Majin Boo arc is so greatly underappreciated. It has the strongest character development out of all the arcs in the original story, the best comedy, fantastic fights, the anime adaption of the arc is brilliant and filler is pretty damn good.

It's awesome. :thumbup: :P

Darn, I completely missed this!

Ignoring GT because I saw it years ago and barely remember it, I'm surprised with the results so far in part.
I'm shocked that the Red Ribbon Arc was placed so low. The arc has almost everything! It's the best adventure arc in the Dragon Ball by far (not that hard :P ), it hits the emotional notes - Grandpa Gohan reunion and Bora's death -, it has the most diverse set of enemies in a arc and significantly expands the World with the Karin Tower and Baba.
It's really, really good! I guess it's just me.

The low placement of the Champa Arc when compared to the 21st Tenkaichi Budokai and the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai is weird to me. All these tournaments in my opinion belong in the same tier. This shows a phenomenon to me, either bias because the arc is recent and the whole easy discredit of Super or the arc hasn't had the time the others had to ferment with the fans.

Just to participate a little my favourite arc is the Namek Arc and the least favourite is the RoF Arc. Looking at how those GT arcs placed even lower than RoF makes me scared of my eventual re-watch of GT. :?

Also, because this did pretty well, should I do another one ?

YES!!!

The Majin Boo ranked second. I'm even more staggered it managed to beat out the Freeza arc. :clap:

I have no issue at all with the Saiyan arc ranking first, it's a great arc from start to finish.

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.

Well, at least the Saiyan arc won but I can't agree with Boo being number 2. At least the Android arc isn't on here.

Same. I was hoping the Freeza arc would be second but I'll take Saiyan for number one anyways. Atleast the FT arc isn't in the top 5. Almost, but not quite :twisted:

I am as well, I though it was going to be #4-5 but WOW, it was #2, surpassing both fan favorites Freeza and Piccolo. 8)

I guess we can now say that the Buu arc is a fan favorite. :clap:

The Saiyan arc introduced my favorite anime character so I don't mind it being #1. :mrgreen:

Saiyan arc winning warms my heart. Best arc is best. By a large margin too!

Shocked Frieza lost to Buu though. Very surprised by that.

I'm actually surprised Buu got that high considering there are quite a few complaints against it. It's my favorite so I approve. Same with the Saiyan saga being number 1. It so hard to find fault with that part of the story. It's damn near perfect.

Really fun list.

Can anyone who loves the saiyan arc so much explain why? It was great, but it was so short that I'm surprised.

I made a bet with Alee9977 that Vegeta won't be beaten quickly by an opponent. If I lose, I switch my avatar to Vegeta getting beat by hit. If I win, he switches it to Vegeta holding Black by his hair. This will last a month.

I was expecting Freeza to win, but Saiyan isn't a bad alternative. As others have touched on, it's a great arc from start to finish. I'd love to see more of these games. What will be next? Characters? Villains? Video games?

Best fight scenes, no writing hiccups, feels the most like OG Dragon Ball, Saiyan lore, the introduction of Vegeta, and great character development (for Goku, Gohan, and Piccolo).

I'm (probably) going to Chicago for the weekend, so I'll probably do one on Monday. I might do, Movies, Characters, or Villains, I'm not sure, but I want to finish it on Christmas.
