I liked the Cell saga, but it lost me with the Buu saga. That went on for way too fucking long.

The Dende and Popo thing did happen in the anime, but I strictly remember Gohan having a fight with Frieza because he believes Goku is dead, then Goku appears out of Nameks surface again shortly after the wishes have been made.

Probably a difference between the anime and manga then.

Hmm, nah - I can't find it in the manga. I do remember what you mean now, though. I know a few other things were added into the anime for that saga though, like the Ginyu force showing up at King Kai's place and getting beaten by Tenshinhan, Yamcha and Chaozu.

Never really understood this show, but my bro watched it heaps, I thought the fat characters looked pretty cool, so they were my favourites, Android 19 and Mr Popo....

I'm going to see it with one of my mates, she really wanted to see it anyway, and then I told her how much it's supposed to suck, and now we both want to see it even more. Good times.

Never saw the DBZ series
But I've read the whole (42 books long?) manga tho, and I love it!
Played some of the Dragonball games for the PS2 too, and they were great

I just like the whole idea with the dragonball universe, that you can get stronger and stronger ... without limits! ... but still, someone will always be stronger than you!

I'm a pretty big Dragonball Z fan. My favorite saga is probably the Cell saga. There are some great fights in there and I much prefer Cell's personality to Frieza's annoying voice or Buu's...annoying voice.

I haven't seen the movie yet but I can already tell from the trailer that it's going to destroy everything about Dragonball that my childhood held dear. I mean, really, who thought the stupid teen from War of the Worlds remake would make a good Goku? When did that become a good idea?

There's one thing which sums up the movie. And that's Piccolo.

It's not that bad...plus have you ever heard Goku's voice in the original Japanese version? It's awful. He's a better Goku than whoever did him originally...

Anyway there is a re-edited version of Dragon Ball Z being shown in Japan at the moment Dragon Ball Kai, removing the filler episodes and just re-editing to make it zip along better and follow the manga more closely, hopefully a reduction in the 20 minute episodes of people just staring at each other.

Oh yeah, I think it must have been a woman who originally voiced Goku - very high pitched. I couldn't take the first few episodes I watched in the original Japanese seriously. The best dub I've heard is the Mexican one.

That sounds pretty cool, I bought the first series on DVD recently, the Saiyan Saga (probably my favourite) and I'm surprised with just how many shitty filler episodes there are in it. I also forgot that the series had a stupid subplot of the other characters at Master Roshi's watching the Saiyan battle on TV, which just completely destroys the flow of the whole thing... one of many reasons why I prefer the manga anyway - not to sound elitist or anything, I just like taking the story at my own pace (quickly) rather than having to watch three episodes for someone to punch a character.

That was the only thing that annoyed me about DBZ... the episodes in which one of the three things happened:

- one of the characters spent 10 minutes powering up
- one of the characters spent 10 minutes building energy, or in some cases the entire episode
- "you killed ...! you'll pay!"
- one of the charcters stands in one spot, sweating, blabbering in shock, for 10 minutes, Piccolo was especially good at this

Why

Why the Buu saga was a bit annoying.

I just saw it. Why? Why? Why tarnish the image of this brilliant anime with this painfull movie?

Speaking of the Buu Saga, I read somewhere that originally Toryiama wanted to end DBZ with Cell... Makes more sense to me, anyway...

I didn't care about Buu...
