DBZ is terrible.

#3 Posted by Insignia (137 posts) - - Show Bio

I certainly agree that it is overrated. There seems little true depth in the characters. The plot of each saga seems to be drawn out before finally coming to a relatively rapid conclusion.

It has too much irrelevant filler which seems like a visual equivalent of shovelware.

Yes.

I don't believe in the word overrated. It was defiantly better when I was a kid but it was fun and simple. I didn't have to worry about a confusing plot, all that mattered was that I was gonna see a bitchin' amount of explosions and fighting. The best thing about that show though was that they new killing off characters was bullshit. If someone died they would be wished back in a year at most and that was what fun about the show. But what a lot of people don't get is that it wasn't meant for us, it's a Japanese show. Their culture is completely different than ours and so they like different things. For example do you think superman or Xbox is popular down there?

No DBZ is terrible in general

very overrated but the realistic versions of Freiza is kind of cool/stupid

#11 Posted by santeria_smith (304 posts) - - Show Bio

I dont think it's overrated. i mean its a great anime.. but yes it has alot of problems with it. akira toriyama originally intended for the manga to end after frieza died, with Goku dieing with the planet Namek. But sales were to good so he had to continue.

The first series Dragonball was really good and the story had much more depth to it. the only problem with dbz is that it was drug out to long. which then made each character have to get stronger and stronger, and more super saiya-jins. it just went to shit. but i like dbz and still watch it. but i do think its not the greatest anime/manga japan has to offer.


also. hating on dbz is getting pretty old. in every topic that involved dbz there it a mass of dbz haters. ok we get it. everyone hates it. stop talking about it.

I've never seen it, and I don't have a problem with it. The only problem I have is it seems my friends think Goku can beat anybody....anybody

#13 Posted by Aronmorales (9434 posts) - - Show Bio

I liked it better when I was younger...funny how I didn't like Justice League around the same time...
now everything is flipped around.

#14 Posted by The Devil Tiger (1263 posts) - - Show Bio

Dbz is a good show, but it's true that time show it's mark.

Wathever, there are flaws in the anime : battle or scene too long, inconsisent episode and after Cells there's nothing really much left to see.
 But Goku is to anime what superman is to comics, an Icon of some sort. It's the breakthrough of a genre...like it or not.

Personnally, I tend to think that's te word overrated which overrated ! :-)

How is it overrated? Tons of people hate it now.....

I mean, I don't like it, but it's not like I see people going around on forums talking about how it's kickass anymore.

#16 Posted by Andras (2644 posts) - - Show Bio

I think people make it out to be better than it actually is but their is no denying just how important it was. The manga was much better than the anime......And dragonball not DBZ was a classic.

DBZ isn't overrated.DBZ is the Wolverine of anime.It's had become so popular that people don't like it not because it's almost uncool not to.I don't see how anyone wouldn't agree that DBZ was was phenomenal animation wise for the time it was created.

back when it first came out, but once i got older i looked at it and found out that every single saga was the same,
people come to earth
goku fights
goku gets the crap kicked out of him
goku wins via SB or helps his sone like in cell
it's really just the same idea and every saga they just advance the ssj level

I like DBZ and I don't think the show itself is overrated. What I think is overrated is how powerful they all are. A lot of people think that DBZ characters are the most powerful ever made and no one can beat them. That's where I think it's overrated.

#27 Posted by Alexander Anderson (4030 posts) - - Show Bio

DBZ is a mediocre to bad piece of work with shallow, irritating characters, lame art and some of the worst power-scaling in the history of anime.  But it was the first exposure to anime that many people got, myself included.  DBZ was kickass back in the day when I was 11 and Tom on Toonami was introducing the latest run of episodes in that special way he had.  It was all new and original and I didn't have anything to compare it to.  Now that I'm older I realize that while DBZ might have founded modern shonen, it was hardly the greatest shonen show in history. 

Which isn't to say that DBZ doesn't have some truly great moments.  There's no doubt about that.  It's just not that great as a whole.

@Sparda: the fact that dbz fans create battle treads with ssj4 goku and ssj2 gohan vs superman and wonder woman should tell you right there that dbz is overrated
#29 Edited by jloneblackheart (5465 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like DBZ but I like comics better. I have every episode on DVD, so I can just watch the cool episodes or skip through all the crap. It kind of sucks how all three sagas are pretty much the same plot, just like DC_Marvel says.

I think the characters are overrated on this site and others as far as their strength and speed.

DBGT was total and utter garbage in my opinion and I find it unwatchable.

#31 Posted by Omega-Mekix (594 posts) - - Show Bio

I think that DBZ went a little to far sometimes but overall it wasn't bad. At least it was better then DB.GT  I couldn't stand that series. What was SS4 all about anyway?

When was the last time someone made a post like that in this forum? It used to happen all the time, maybe a year and a half ago. I just don't see it occur much anymore. Not saying it doesn't happen, but it's not like it's popping up every day.

That doesn't mean it's overrated, either. That just means that it has fanboys.....and everything has fanboys.

Goku got his tail back and turned into a golden oozaru (the giant monkey, but like a super saiyan) when fighting Bebi. Pan (his granddaughter) talked him into calming and he transformed into a super saiyan 4, which looks totally retarded. Only pure blood saiyans can do it. That's all I know.

DBZ was awesome GT was trash, do not let the errors of GT judge the greatness that is DBZ , sure they may have had awkward starring contest, but when fight the earth shook literally.

@vegeta: Omega-Mekix asked me what a super saiyan 4 was so I told him all I know. I was letting him know how Goku turned into the SS4 and only pure blooded saiyans can do it. You could probably fill both of us in better, because I only saw like 2 episodes with a SS4, the one where he changed and when he beat Bebi (spelling?)

Agreed.  The main problem is the unbearably slow moving plot.

If they just combined episodes in threes, they could make the entire series three times as good.

Awesome when I was younger. Now it's near unwatchable.
