One of the most
famous anime series of all time. Mostly for its extreme length
array of characters. The basic plot
covers the adventures
of Goku and his friends as they battle ever more powerful enemies to protect the Earth/Universe
comes from the seven magical balls that the characters usual gather together in order to get their wishes granted, usually something along the lines of bringing people back to life.
Apart from being somewhat
repetitive (what show doesn't follow a trend?)it is actually a very decent
and original show drawn in a very humorous
style by the original artist. One of the best things to come out of the 80's.
Usually scorned by the general
public and anime purists because of its mainstream overexposure and americanization by dubbing companies. Most
will claim it was their stepping stone to move
onto bigger and better
things just not to sound like total
n00bs ignoring the fact that DB/Z
is in fact widely
popular in Japan and since 2004 began making a large comeback. It provided influence for today's best animes such as One Piece and Naruto. Most
will contest that, however, rightfully popular, Dragonball Z will probably be around longer than their silly Inuyasha or "deeper" animes.
