Why is anything that's from the show but not the comic book filler, not bonus content? It's written by the same people I think, so I don't see what makes it inferior. I guess humans have a tendancy to overestimate the authority of books.

Well, one reason is that filler can't really have any consequence toward the ongoing story, if the manga and anime are being made at the same time, as is usually the case. Content that is made after the manga is finished, and added to the anime, can sometimes be great, because they know how the story ends and how to fit everything together. But if filler is put in for the normal reason of "the anime is catching up to the manga and we need more time," it can't have any lasting consequence towards anything that happens in the future. Because they don't want anything in the filler to contradict what the writers actually had planned for the ongoing story, so filler episodes can end up bland, tasteless, and fan-serving. The Naruto and Naruto Shippuden animes, for instance, are about 40% filler episodes, and when you watch them without the filler episodes the sense of continuity is much better.

99% of the time it is not written by the same people. Directors/ Producers are almost never the authors of the series and as such often have a more shallow understanding of the series and **** up continuity. However, their contracts almost ways give them the creative liberty to create these filler segments, whether in movie or episode form. They're not evil people, I mean I think anyone would love to get to create an episode or movie to their favorite movie.

But yeah, as i recall DBZGT was completely unrelated to Akira Toriyama and he's shunned the entire spin off from existence. In the newest DBZ movie he actually referred to goku's new Super saiyan level as "one even stronger than super saiyan 3" which shows his rejection of SS4 and all other DBZGT events. And of course big fans of the series will side with the creator in this matter.

This is great.

I don't hate dbz but I don't think it's as good as everyone tries to act like it is, yes I enjoyed the show when I was younger but wouldn't watch it again now
#63 to #62 - Rascal (07/17/2013) [-]
everyone has different opinions, i know a lot of things that i wouldn't consider to be good right now like i did in my childhood, but i would still watch it because every time i watch it, i would remember how much i enjoyed it and mainly for the nostalgia

if you enjoyed something during any point in your life, then it's good enough for me

Dragon Ball as a series is the one largest inspiration for me to get off my ass and do something with my life. Is that an uncommon way to see it? Maybe. But it is, and it is also ranked number one manga series ever produced in Japan.

The Anime had a lot of time elapsed for each arc, but that is because they show every literal second of the fights. Is that necessary? Hell no. It caused Cell's killing of Goku. People die as a result of the duration of the fights all the time. It's supposed to show the scale of their power in relative length to the time they can sustain each other or some ****** logic like that.

Kai would have been a solution, but it should have been Adult Swim because ******* Nickelodeon ******* it right up.

I love Dragon Ball. I wasn't even allowed to watch it as a kid, and I love it now free from nostalgia because I just diddly do.

I think what Kai should have done, is just remaster the whole series but make it look like the cut scenes in like, I think it was Ultimate Tenkaichi and with that dub. I would LOVE the series. When Goku becomes a super saiyan, he calls Freiza a "heartless, rutheless bastard." I love it.

Oh and with Falconer music.
#142 to #140 - magmon (07/17/2013) [-]
I wouldn't like that personally, and it would take SOOOOOO LOOOOOONG to animate it all that way. I would love the original audio (which is why I paid too much for the limited run dragon boxes), and the original music, but Nickelodeon was in no position to take on such a violent type of show, and they dun goofed.

Frieza is a terrible villain because all he wants to do is rule worlds.

This was the exact reason I gave up on the bleach anime. I gave up on the manga when Aizen fake-out died the fourth or fifth time.
User avatar #115 - murrlogic (07/17/2013) [-]
Garlic Jr was still relevant then the Driving Episode or the Dating Episode between Krillin and Maron

Or anything episode involving Teen Gohan, Goten, and Videl training

User avatar #137 to #107 - killermuffin (07/17/2013) [-]
Yep. I'm guessing you're thinking about the Dead Zone movie. In between the Freiza and Trunks sagas there's the Garlic Jr. Saga. It was like, 12 episodes I think? I have the series on DVD, and I never watched the Garlic Jr. Saga.

The majority of the internet hates DBZ. The few people who do like it like it only because of nostalgia.
User avatar #74 to #70 - Lainge (07/17/2013) [-]
Okay you're including a rather large group of people when you say the majority.
The majority of the internet meaning, people who have never seen it due to age (too old and too young) and that is a lot of people.
Then you're also including people who have never seen it due to well never watching it.
In any case, you're an idiot.

Hey don't down on the Garlic Junior Saga, he was the ****
User avatar #138 to #65 - killermuffin (07/17/2013) [-]
Aside from being the only villain to actually wish for immortality, his saga was boring. I can never get past when he traps Kami and Mr. Popo in those Klein Bottle lookin' like things.
#75 to #65 - porksammich (07/17/2013) [-]
Damn straight! That filler saga was really awesome! ...except for Kuririn's bimbo bitch of a 'girlfriend'

Krillin. ******* weeaboo.

Don't you ******* dare call me that. I am only spelling it like that because I have read the manga numerous times since I was ten. That's how I learned how to spell it, so get off my back; I'm going by what I know
