If Dragon Ball was to end somewhere during Z, I think Vegeta's sacrifice vs Buu would be perfect. It's an unpopular opinion, but I just feel like it would be incredibly interesting and... unexpected?

Idk if Gohan was friends with Piccolo because he was "pure of heart". I think it's just because he simply wasn't there for the bad stuff the King Piccolo did, he wasn't born yet. So really, its another point for why DBZ's time skip was well implemented.

Dragon ball peaked from Ten shinhan until the frieza saga. Especially from ten shinhan until piccolo Jr. due to the good character progression and not pulling idiotic power ups (except the magical water which it is still better than whatever Z did like 100g and etc., even the filler) they use real martial arts and techniques like the mafu ba and the deaths actually shocked and were devastating. The beginning of Z part still has some of the same qualities, but when they leave for namek things start to go downhill with things like gravity training, zenkai boosts, after image training and even super sayian( although at freeza saga it is handled differently and it is still really important, unlike what the other arcs do)

I'd argue Cell does have character. He was exceptionally good at attacking the main character's weaknesses. It was less that Cell was whining to Vegeta to let him absorb the androids and more that he was exploiting his main weakness. His pride. And he attacked Gohan's weakness of wanting to protect his loved once by attacking them, in order to draw out his power.

With out dragon ball we wouldnt have modern battle shonen. That is a definite fact. How ever just because I like Naruto or My Hero doesnt mean you would like dragon ball. There is two reasons i believe this too be. Number 1: Dragon ball (entire series) has little to no character development. Its always people wanting to fight. The little character development there is isnt enough to compare to other manga. Number 2: It was the easiest to watch anime for an entire generation. This series rides harder on Nostalgia then dieing out rock bands. Thats why it hasnt changed its formula. Thats why in super we get galaxys of flat characters for our heros to beat up. Just like every other saga. I grew up on Dragon Ball Z reruns and Naruto. I love both series. Both for different reasons. I just cant be convinced that dragon ball is better then Naruto. For me I love character development. Both will hold a special place in my heart though.

No doubt the Sayian saga was hype as fuck. The whole King Kai/afterlife plot with a bunch of character development from Piccolo and the other characters was awesome. The battles were brutal as hell too. It was just really well written . Felt more like Dragon Ball than Dragon Ball Z ya know?

To be fair, I was totally tricked into believing that the Cell saga was superior just because of the stellar work TFS did on it. TFS Cell is legit one of my favorite character across all animation.

Actualy, I prefer the Dragon Ball before Z, when Goku was a kid, the earthling warriors were strong and the scale were smaller while the emotional impact were higher

The reason why people like Cell, is because of the Abridged series, he becomes the greatest thing in the entire series.

Disagree on Cell because after Frieza, all of his lackies on Namek and Vegeta, I enjoyed that Cell was just... a monster. And not in the bad, boring way Buu was, like... in the horrific, nightmare almost-Lovecraftian way. He has no goals beyond pure hunger and his goal of fighting Goku only comes from wanting to consume him for power. Frieza, it was a vice and conquest. Vegeta it was power and subjugation. But Cell? He was just hungry.
But also, the reason I like Cell is because it really did feel like that was an ending in the same way something like End Game or Return of the Jedi did. The heroes won, everyone grew and the day was thoroughly saved without a single loose end left to tie up.

I dont know if Dragon ball had a impact in the US as it did in Mexico but growing up Dragon ball was everything. I remember glimpses of the original Dragon ball just like i remember glimpses of my childhood. After we moved to the US and started watching Dragon ball z i was thrown off that they had thrown in rock music during the fight. In Mexico we got the orchestrated fight song that Japan got and i think that only made Dragon Ball that much more enjoyable.
Funny fact. After i moved to the US and i first saw a blonde kid with blue eyes i thought he was a super sayan lmfao

I think the reason why the character problem does not happen with other series is because other series know when to throw characters away and not waste personalities

I cannot deny it. Dragonball was always crazy good. Especially from the beginning. But the best Saga will always be Frieza. Up untill then i was on the edge of my seat. Goku Becoming the legendary Super Saiyan. Pinnacle of his power. You know..when power levels actually still had numbers. When a planet only had 5 minutes before blowing up but that took like 40 episodes to happen. Gotta love it. But it was around the Cell Saga it slowly started to go down. Buu was good but not better. GT was just to slowpaced and weird but i loved the transformation and basically had no trouble accepting it as the end. I mean seriously it had reached the end of the cookie a long time ago. Can't feed you crumbs anymore. And power build ups became a joke..
