First got into the franchise via the original Dragon Ball anime, which had a short run in the states when I was a kid and ignited my interest in martial arts. Then Dragon Ball Z exploded and I followed that all the way up to the end. I tried Dragon Ball GT, but didn't really like the whole premise of Goku becoming a kid again and all that other junk. (Not to mention it ruined Trunks for me since he's my main fav Dragon Ball character.)

That said, I'm rather interested in this new Dragon Ball Super coming out, which seems to negate DBGT in terms of continuity.



I personally prefer Dragon Ball in terms of characterizations because the series didn't make Goku such an OP character. Every other fighter character like Krillin and Yamcha (who inspired my interest in Thief classes in MMORPGs) were able to hold their own in battle and not so reliant on Goku (and Vegeta) as they were in DBZ. I'm hoping Toriyama would reference the original Dragon Ball's characterizations for Dragon Ball Super 'cause I feel it's time for Goku to leave the limelight and let other characters shine for a bit. (Please no more Goku and Vegeta clones...)

Well considering they are turning Battle of Gods and Resurrection of F into arcs within Super, Goku and Vegeta are looking to be at center stage for at least most of it.

Le sigh. Oh well, hopefully there's new characters to look forward to at least.

Finally got around to checking out DBS, going from episode 1 to 15 today. Fight scenes are an improvement from DBZ (aside from Episode 5, what the heck happened there??) and it was fun seeing the entire main cast from DB to DBZ there (even if they were just cameos). Pilaf and company were annoying as usual, but found them slightly tolerable. It was also pretty neat to see continuations of stuff from DBZ (Vegeta being a dad, d'aww).

Beerus is an interesting villain. Well, I'm not sure if he can be classified as such since it's his job to remove pointless planets from the universe (even if he was being a jerk about it). I dunno, I don't find him very likable, but I don't find him unappealing either. He is a rather interesting character for the Dragon Ball story.

I see they're still doing the whole fight-last-for-several-episode deal they started with DBZ, but for some reason the pacing of the drawn-out fights isn't that bad. Not quite used to seeing such a classic anime get a modernized look, but I suppose it's an acquired taste.

Heh, even Akira Toriyama is miffed at the quality.

At least he knows what his fans want.

Welp, since Dragon Ball Online was a bust, maybe this might fill the void.

Dragon Ball Unreal

Definitely needs more work in the graphics department, but the ki collision engine is pretty neat.

There’s more teamwork in this vid than there was in all three series lol


If it's going to be an RPG about Goku, it should be Dragon Ball -> Dragon Ball Z -> Dragon Ball Super instead of just focusing on DBZ.
