I want to watch DB, is it worth it for the fights?


Cant_Remorse

Yes. Yes. Yes. The fights are actual fights and not just ki spamming.


SSJRemuko

yes. but theres more to it than just fights. you shouldnt get into a series, even one heavy on fighting like this "just for the fights".


Fessere

If you like fights where fighters are closer to each other in terms of power levels and more strategic instead of endless ki blasts, then yea its worth it.


Dartsanddurrys

DB fights are probably less spectacular then Z and super fights . I don’t what it would be like going back to the less flashy fights but because I watched it before seeing all the crazy ki stuff they felt way better . The fights are more focussed on martial arts if you’re in to that side . Definitely watch it if you are a fan of dragon ball though


astrowrllddd

I watched clips of tien vs teen Goku and I thought wow I definitely gotta get on this. Choreographed too. What kind of enjoyment came from the show other than the fights? Story will hold me over?


Dartsanddurrys

Story’s cool . It relates to DBZ with red ribbon army , piccolo etc .. first few sagas might be a bit slow and boring but once you get to the tournaments you’ll have a better viewing experience . Tien and piccolo come into it towards the end of the show which is where it’s best. The story is more of an adventure story getting to know the world more then a full blown action show imo, if you are curious about the world of dragon ball you’ll probably enjoy it


MarcamGorfain

What about GT?


Dartsanddurrys

Haven’t delved into GT. I just stuck with the canon stuff but might give it a look if I’m craving more dragon ball


chicxulub237

I would recommend you to read the manga, it's more dynamic to read and understand than anime, but you already watched everything, good to know you liked, welcome to the community


Cant_Remorse

GT is just a fun side story tbh. It gave cool ideas, and that's pretty much it imo.


Etheon44

And ssj 4, which is the best saiyan form we have seen ever


Cant_Remorse

Ssj4 sucks. Its not even a real super saiyan form.


Etheon44

Because it doesn't have yellow hair? The rue super saiyan is one that combines the power of the ozaru with the human form. Perfect idea and best super saiyan, the new gods except the normal super saiyan god, but super saiyan god super saiyan...


Cant_Remorse

I liked super brolys interpretation of "ssj4" its not a super saiyan transformation because its roots is in the great ape form. Its not a super saiyan transformation just because the great ape turns gold. It comes after the great ape.


Tyslice

You should totally watch gt. Now that I'm older I appreciate it a lot more and it's a really cool like alternate reality unless they can somehow make it work again. Then watch super Dragonball heroes! But watching super Dragonball heroes and then watching gt could be cool cause then you'll wanna know about gt characters. Super Dragonball heroes is still ongoing though monthly 7 min eps with a story and they tie a bunch of old villains into it.


PurestEvil5_9

Don't fall for the "canon" trap. GT is a valid show you should watch


yummycoke

nice, if you want some more stuff with super before the new movie comes out then you should check out the manga as it is currently still going and there are two more sagas after top


Neusitzer

IMO super is lacking in character development and a sense of “doom”. I think back to the Android/cell saga and watching it for the first time thinking about how terrifying of a villain they were and how the threat was so eminent when they would be wiping out cities and absorbing the people, I think super would have done better with some darker themes and better animation. Watching super now I feel they moved away from the classic anime tropes and into more “general kids cartoon”


Content_Employment_7

Agreed. Even the darkest Super saga -- the second Future Trunks saga -- contained the threat to an entirely different and already largely fucked timeline for the vast majority of the saga. The stakes were super low the whole time. Shit, they even *lost the timeline*, and the only two people, either real or fictional, who give a shit are Future Trunks and Future Mai.


PresidentRoss

It doesnt help that super takes place before Z ends so there is 0 question as to who lives and d13s


SSJRemuko

you can say dies. you dont need to censor it.


PresidentRoss

Nope. Last time I said I hope a character d13s on this forum and the walking dead my account got locked for 3 weeks


Dartsanddurrys

I can agree with that. Surprised super isn’t actually a darker themed show as most of its audience are most likely adults by now . Probably to do with super coming out so late after Z and wanting a new audience


SSJRemuko

> super is lacking in character development this is just factually wrong. > ...and a sense of “doom” and this. I dont understand personally why people care? The good guys are gonna win and stuff is gonna get fixed with dragon balls either way. "impending sense of doom" isn't required and imo isn't even very fitting for the series except used sparingly.


SSJRemuko

really nice to see a fresh unbiased perspective on the series! glad you enjoyed it all! welcome to the family!


movietvmaster

what site did u watch dragon ball and where do u watch dbz episodes plz tell me thx


Dartsanddurrys

I watched it on animelab. Which I think is only in Australia/New Zealand. If your not from there should be on Funimation
