I was watching DragonBall and DBZ. And DBZ was just too much about energy beings, etc. While DB was more martial arts based and had better plots IMO. Aswell as better characters. Anyone agree?

Yup but the whole series sucks overall.

In a way yes, because the human characters weren't completely useless. Perhaps if DBZ gets remade/retold/whatever you wanna call it, they won't get left in the dust.

DB and DBZ are the only good Anime. The rest suck, DBZ sorta lost focus of what DragonBall was all about. Still loved it tho.

Nah... I like Dragon Ball Z better. 
The Frieza and Saiyan Saga is Too Epic.

I loved Dragonball. the over poweredness of the Z series was killed when I could enjoy just a simple martial arts series.

This. After Freeza Saga, Toriyama pretty much lost his creativity involving Dragon Ball IMO.

Story-wise, Dragon Ball is better than DBZ.

#15 Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek (19889 posts) - - Show Bio

Ehh... I personally like DBZ more only because I grew up with it. I understand why people like DB more though.

Okay, I'll agree with you there. The whole future and Android thing was really cool. I didn't really like the Buu Saga though. I would love it if someone over at Jump (maybe not Toriyama, because from what I've heard, he's lost alot of his memory concerning the series) wrote a full arc taking place after either Freeza or Cell, where Gohan is the main hero all the way through (due to how much of a wuss he is displayed as in Freeza Saga although he is hyped up to be a whole new super-breed that gets super-powerful way faster than the regular Saiyans with tons of potential)and Goku is a supporting role, or at least what Vegeta is to Goku in terms of character placement. I remember Toriyama saying he tried to make Gohan the main hero of the Buu arc, and switched over to Goku because he didn't think Gohan fit the role.

lol so freaking true

Dragon Ball. There's more emphasis on martial arts and a lot less flying and energy blasts.

Goku's battle with Piccolo, Jr was awesome, however.

I grew up with DBZ, so I'll give it the win for the sake of nostalgia

I thought dbz what the initial for " Dragon Ball Z " ?

#24 Posted by redbird3rdboywonder (3818 posts) - - Show Bio

@TERMINATORXX: DBZ is the intials for Dragon. Ball. Zenkai.

#25 Posted by Inverno (13043 posts) - - Show Bio

Dragon Ball was average but looking back, DBZ wasn't better: the horrible pacing, very few happened between episodes and they would do anything to stretch out the fighting scenes. When I first watched the Majin Buu Saga, I remembered to have dropped a few times and when I returned very little happened. Really frustrating.

#26 Posted by redbird3rdboywonder (3818 posts) - - Show Bio

Yu Yu hakusho's better than both

#31 Posted by sesquipedalophobe (4689 posts) - - Show Bio

Both shows were incredibly dull and there was only so much crappy dialogue and grunting I could stomach before changing the channel to Judge Mathis. I'd rather watch Big O.

What's better than DB?
#38 Posted by Death Certificate (5438 posts) - - Show Bio

@comicdude23: Keep in mind most of these animes are slightly old

Cowboy Bebop

Outlaw Star

Yu Yu Hakusho

Trigun

Samurai Champloo

Rurouni Kenshin

Fist of the North Star

Berserk

Gundam wing

neon evangelion

fullmetal alchemist

etc...

Not that Dragonball or Dragonball Z is bad but most of these shows are alot better.

DB. It had a sense of humor and the stories were more interesting.

The English version of Yu-Gi-Oh! sucks. But the Japanese version is awesome, and to be honest I like it a lot more than Dragonball.

@comicdude23: I take it you haven't watched the Japanese version at all. You probably haven't watched any of the anime Death Certificate listed, either. In which case, you really have no basis for your claim that Dragon Ball is the best anime ever (which it's not, not even close).

Yeah. Based off of that, I don't think there's a point to trying to argue at all.

#47 Posted by comicdude23 (11399 posts) - - Show Bio

Fact in my opinion. I think DB is the best Anime because it's original.

#48 Posted by comicdude23 (11399 posts) - - Show Bio

The question was: What do you prefer, DB or DBZ? You can either try and convince me of other Anime I will never watch or answer the question.

That's better. You should have said that in the beginning.

I know. If you didn't want people to start talking about other anime, you should not have made that one post about how it's the only good anime. And I said before that Dragon Ball is better than DBZ story-wise.

Also, even though it's not my favorite anime, I still like Dragon Ball and DBZ (but GT not so much) and I respect the franchise and should note that it has had a lot of influence on other anime today.

#50 Posted by comicdude23 (11399 posts) - - Show Bio

GT wasn't needed. I see you like Transformers, did you watch the 1984 series? I like Godzilla too.
