Default Re: DragonBall Z

I loved dragonball z, but watching some of the episodes recently the power ups were too long, not enough drama, when it transitioned from dragonball to dragonball z it was kinda weird with the aliens and what not, and gt killed the series. Other than that i liked the series. The budokai series was cool but, burst limit and raging blast sucked. Raging blast is ruined by super saiyan 3 vegeta

What do you mean by clones.?

I see your point.

Well the manga shifted directions because they started focusing more on the Saiyans, their history, etc. Well at least thats my opinion.

the power ups really did take along time now that I think about it. But if you look back they would show episodes like that in marathons and not one episode at a time . Do you get what i'm trying to say.?

And the sseries did leave a few unexplained situations here and there.

I mean in Budakai Tenkaichi, how is Goku SS1 different from Goku SS2. They're both pretty much the same character and fight almost the same way IMO.

And yeah I agree with your manga statement. But I just hate it how you have to rely on super powerful attacks like Kamemeha wave or Spirit Bomb to actually do any damage to your opponent.

Well in the series there was never really a SS2 Goku they kinda just skipped to SS3 but the difference is that he has an electric chidori stream type aura around him. Lol.

True, but it makes it more intense in a way. But the only problem with that is if they miss. But that like rarely happens. I see what your trying to say though.
