Dragon Ball Z, now with 45% less time powering up.
Dragon Ball Z without the production difficulties, American soundtrack and filler. The ideal TV version of Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball.
Kai is the best way to experience the show and while definelty dated, still holds up and better than most shounen nowadays. First anime
It really is the best way to watch DBZ now, just don’t watch it on Nicktoons like I did…
Better than Z. Less redundant crap
I choose to watch this instead of the longer original. I can’t speak for Dragon Ball Z, but this felt really easy to watch and enjoy.
Read the Dragon Ball manga instead, but since both are exactly the same, I’m going to update this series as finished. 9/10
