Kanzenshuu Members Favorite Series.

Post by simtek34 » Tue Dec 20, 2016 11:30 pm

The rules are similar to the other Favorite Threads. Super will be so far up to episode 70. I'm counting Kai and Kai Buu as separate series. All summaries and pictures from Toei USA's Website. Here are the options.
[spoiler]Image
Image
Innocent Goku and his friends set out on a quest to find mysterious Dragon Balls, which are scattered around the world. A wish will come true once all seven balls are gathered[/spoiler][spoiler]Image
Image
With Goku facing powerful and overwhelming new enemies, his son, Gohan, joins the action, as they fight bigger and more perilous battles.[/spoiler][spoiler]Image
Image
After another set of Dragon Balls hidden in a shrine turn Goku back into a child, he must recover Dragon Balls from across the universe within one year to prevent the Earth from disappearing.[/spoiler][spoiler]Image
Image
While visiting Master Roshi, Goku and Gohan are attacked by a strange man claiming to be Goku’s brother. The man informs Goku that they are both from another planet. After Goku rejects his demand that everyone on Earth be killed, the stranger kidnaps Gohan. Goku and his friends must once again battle to keep peace in the universe.[/spoiler][spoiler]Image
Image
Seven years after defeating Cell, Gohan attends high school and becomes a great Saiyaman but during a fight, Spopovitch and Yamu steal his energy to revive Majin Buu.[/spoiler][spoiler]Image
Image
With the threat of Majin Buu gone, Goku and his friends live in peace. When everyone gets together for the first time in a while for Bulma’s birthday, Beerus, the God of Destruction appears and the action moves beyond the universe to a new phase[/spoiler]

Mine is... 1.Dragon Ball
2.Dragon Ball Z Kai
3.Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters
4.Dragon Ball Super
5.Dragon Ball GT
6. Dragon Ball Z

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.

1. Dragon Ball - I think the earlier part of Dragon Ball is the best. It definitely goes downhill after the Saiyan Arc.
2. Dragon Ball Z - But it is still this part of Dragon Ball that got me into the series in the first place. While it definitely has its flaws, and the pacing of the anime portion in particular takes a huge nosedive starting late-Freeza, it's still fantastic.
3. Dragon Ball GT - Not great, but at least it pushes the concepts forward.
4. Dragon Ball Super - There have been some episodes I've really enjoyed and even some concepts I have found to be quite inspired. But overall, it's been meh.
5. Dragon Ball Kai - I appreciate the idea, but I could never get into it. And after the music scandal, the whole thing just became an unmitigated mess. I have no desire to own a reversioning of a reversioning.
6. Dragon Ball Kai: The Final Chapters - Beyond caring at this point.
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:

1. DBZ. It's definitely not as good as the original DB, but I can't be objective. Nostalgia goggles AF.
2. DB. Absolutely incredible. The marital arts fantasy concepts mixed with all these other elements is just soooo good!
3. Dragon Ball Kai
4. Dragon Ball Kai: The final chapters
5. Dragon Ball GT: Better than Super
6. Dragon Ball Super.

Dragonball z- Blah Blah, Childhood, Blah blah, Ran home from school.

DragonBall- Little goku on little adventure. Cute and badass.

Dragonball Super- Hey, I've loved it so far. Doesn't feel like the previous series, but I never expected it to. Not after so long.

Dragonball GT- I don't hate it. In fact I like at least half of it. But it's so boring a lot of the time.

Dragonball Kai

Dragonball Kai Boo chapters.

I love Kai and what Funimation did with it, but it's still just DBZ slimed down. I liked the idea as I don't always want to go through the padding of Z, but it has to be at the bottom for me.
SUBARASHII! - Goku Black

I am the Great Saiyaman! Defender of truth! Protector of the innocent! Upholder of justice! Doer of good!

To Infinity, then stop!
