Watching episode 6. Agreed, the Piccolo sagas are epic. But I love the early ones too. I love seeing the original Z-Fighters assemble.

I loved the tournaments, and the mercenary Tao storyline. King Piccolo was probably the best though.

my big issue with Z is the fights drag out way too long, and a lot of it is filler powering up stuff with tons of shock and awe gawkiing, like every new power up or staring each other down takes like 2 minutes of play out. this is my first time watching all of this and i have to fast forward thru it at this point, at least so much of the filler in the fighting. DBZ has nothing on Naruto when it comes to fighting depth IMO. the great part about it tho is they take it to levels and twists that you can't really predict all of the time.

i think it lost like 3/4's of its humor after Dragonball. altho there are a ton more fights in Z, but it just drags way too much within the fights. i guess some people love that but to me its gotten way too common and i'm still only halfway thru.

The humor is still there though trust me. It's more serious than DB, but once you move past the Namek Saga there is LOTS of humor especially towards the end of the series.

yeah i just got there with the high school episodes. i like them so far but not as good as Dragonball imo. Goku and Gohan have no personality as they get older, its really annoying to me. i like the writing tho and the scenario's they create and the humor still but still isn't anywheree near as good as OG Dragonball.

whats up with naming a character Satan? is there a japanese translation to that? it just seems an odd name to use for a cartoon. its not a big deal just real odd they'd choose that for a characters name that has no relation to the devil or anything evil really, like its just completely random.

also its pretty dumb to me how Goku's family is poor and worries about money considering Bulma has to be super rich, Goku's abilities, but whateveer, its just a tiny thing i thought

how did krillin have a baby with a android? whatever happened to Launch?

its also tripping me out how much Naruto copied from DBZ, i mean Goku meditating on top of the tip of the mountain, is the same exact scene from Naruto training Sage mode on top of Mount whatever. so many things i'm seeing that Naruto did. i don't hold anything against Naruto for it since its different enough to be its own creation and unique world with great writing but DBZ being Naruto's inspiration is a understatement. i still love Naruto tho

Akira Toriyama's sense of humor was excellent until he sold himself out for less comical but easier to sell DBZ.

It's a joy to watch this show and then go right into DBZ.

That revelation where in DBZ shit gets real when Raditz shows up and tells everyone what's really up with Goku is great. Suddenly the tone is completely different.

I love to see that from Akira.
