There is no new series confirmed, only new episodes of Dragon Ball Kai which will be released this year, the voice actors already confirmed as much, so I don't know why this guy is saying there will be a new series.

No SSJ3 Vegeta, but he will be stronger than SSJ3 Goku at some point because Bills will slap Bulma...no words to express how stupid I think that is.

Oh and btw Dragon Ball >>>>>>>>> Dragon Ball Z mainly because the story line is better and you don't have to wait 5 episodes for a dude to charge up or transform

The problem with DBZ is that because it got so popular, Akira was forced to continue it at times when it made sense to end it there. It is rumored it was supposed to end with Freiza and Goku avenging the Saiyan race as the legendary Super Saiyan with Goku dying on Namek, or at least as a cliff hanger. When Goku explains how he got off Namek in time, it seems like that was a last minute thing the writers came up with to keep Goku alive (at least to me it seems that way). Oh I was screaming as I was about to die, but then I saw a spaceship falling into lava, so I dove after it, and pressed random button, and smashed at the buttons, and I just got away in time.

The Cell saga made the most sense to end it there. The Red Ribbon Army is a major villain in Dragon Ball, so Gero wanting to kill Goku made sense after he defeated them. He created an ultimate being that had everyone's cells, and was stronger than Goku. Throughout DBZ before the Cell Games, Gohan clearly had hidden powers throughout the series, so it made sense to kill off Goku and make Gohan the next protector of Earth and defeat Cell, which he did. However, people wanted Goku to be the hero. So...

They continued with the Buu saga, and Goku kills Buu with the Spirit Bomb, and everyone lives happily ever after with Uub being the protector of Earth instead, and Goku being the hero. By this arc, the "legendary" Super Saiyan was a "child's play thing," since everyone was basically SS at this point. It would have been much better if they ended the Buu saga with Vegeta's sacrifice since the whole arc was about Vegeta wanting to beat Goku, and letting himself be controlled by Babidi to get more power. He beats Goku (mind you Goku holds back because he didn't go SS3). He realized that his family was more important, and that Goku will always win because of his kindness. Nope, can't let Vegeta be the hero in the end. It had to be Goku.

So point of all this is that DBZ's story seems dragged out and inconsistent at times because the story itself was dragged out for the fans. They had to keep coming up with new stories with Akira working weekly, which he did not like doing. He did it for the fans, and I love him for that.
