    I enjoy a lot of it for the most part, but after the whole Freeza/Namek arc, it became really silly. I did enjoy the whole Android saga, but at the same time it didn't make too much sense to me.
    SSJ2 Gohan was pretty epic though! The Buu Saga? Lame. DBS is decent, but since it takes place before the end of DBZ, it's anti-climactic since we already know what's gonna happen.

    It's just like Star Wars. Back in the day Dragon Ball and Star Wars were something unheard of, but now people have to accept the fact that there are far better works. Even Toriyama dislikes Dragon Ball and doesn't understand its success.

    @Admiral Ryokugyu Toriyama dislikes Dragon Ball so much he just wrote a movie script for it, and he’s still doing story outlines for the Super manga

    @Marco Polo Toriyama dislikes it. Read his message in the latest Jump Festa.

    He says in the last paragraph " Dragon Ball is nothing but fighting, which to be perfectely frank, isn't something i like that much ". In an interview with WSJ he says that he still doesn't understand why DB is popular, he said " i reread it for the first time in ages, and apart from Freeza arc which was suspenseful i can't see why it became so popular ".

    Dragon Ball (not super) is everything One Piece will never be.
    Son Goku is way ahead Luffy!!!
    Without Dragon Ball most mangas would never get out from their mangakas minds!

    @KKG i disagree with your 2 first statements. I agree with your third one.

    It's more than enough to agree with the 3th.
    Son Goku became a god in the end of GT.
    Unlike Luffy he had no babysitters to defeat his enemies.
    The warrior with golden hair will be remembered forever,Luffy will be just a mascot to sell to some noisy kids.

    Dude are you serious ? Only kids compare the strength of two characters from two different manga. The world of Dragon Ball is completely different than the world of One Piece, seeing you comparing Goku to Luffy saying " he became a god in the end of GT " is ridiculous. The mangaka is the master of his own work, Toriyama CHOSE to make Goku overpowered, it's not Goku who's writing the story.

    It was possible for Oda to make Luffy super powerful but it would have been weird because the character must look like he belongs to the world of the story. Dragon Ball is full of inconsistencies, there's not " death " in that story, any character who dies can get resurrected using the dragon balls, the story is way too childish and simple ...

    That comparison you just made is one of the most absurd comparisons i've ever seen in my life.

    " Dragon Ball is better than One Piece because Goku became a god and he doesn't need babysitters to beat his enemies. " oh lord

    For me personally, the work “Dragon Ball” is nothing but fighting, which to be perfectly frank, isn’t something I like all that much (laughs), but for some reason, it’s this really fun, mysterious work that gets me excited when I’m coming up with a story.

    Tell me all that when you see Kaido defeated by Luffy with no babysitters and plot armor and after that you can call me asshole lol!

    @Marco Polo he dislikes it but he gets excited when he comes up with a new story, so what's your point ?

    @Admiral Ryokugyu His quote seems more like he's not a fan of battle manga as a whole rather than Dragonball specifically. Despite that, he still enjoys writing new stories for DB. He's not in a position where he HAS to write DB content for money either, so that should say a lot

    Is Dragonball over-rated? By some, absolutely. But it definitely still compares to some of the best shonen series today, and some of the more recent content has been some of the best - Battle of Gods and the new Broly movie are arguably the franchise's two best.

    @Marco Polo but " dragon ball is nothing but fighting " as he says, and he dislikes battle manga so it means he dislikes Dragon Ball.

    In terms of plot etc., One Piece is far better because Oda's had pretty much everything planned in advance whereas Toriyama changed a lot of stuff around last minute. But then there's a lot of people who'd say One Piece is over-rated, too

    @Marco Polo moreover Toriyama's original scripts are not what you see in the movie or in Super. Toriyama's first script for Broly was too short, and it was the writers of Toei who expanded it. Same thing for Super, he only outlines it and it's up to the writers to add the characters they need. If i remember correctly, more than 5 characters in Super have not been created by Toriyama.

    @Admiral Ryokugyu I'm repeating myself here but if he genuinely disliked it, he wouldn't still be writing for it. See: GT, all the movies pre-Battle of Gods

    @Admiral Ryokugyu I'm well aware of that, I've been reading and watching Super. Toriyama gives them an outline, and then Toyotaro/Toei fill it in however they like. But all the major story points are Toriyama's work iirc

    @Marco Polo just wanna correct something you said above, and it's a huge misconception. Oda did had not planned " pretty much everything in advance ". To this day Oda still doesn't know how to reach the end of One Piece. The only thing he has in mind is the very end, and he tries to build the arcs in a way to reach that point.

    Anyway, i agree that Dragon Ball was a turning point in the history of manga / anime, and that Toriyama is one of the most important ( if not the most important ) mangaka in history. But now Oda is better than him. ( Oda praises Toriyama more than DB fanboys do xD )

    I forget to tell something here,Goku wasn't overpowered,he was a low class on his planet and he trainned to be strong.
    I don't dislike battle stories,i hate battle stories when the mc's development looks a joke to me.
