And how many 30 year olds have you asked about their tastes? 40 year olds? 50?
At 18 you live in a very narrow world. Don't think that because it's broader than when you were 15 that its scope is in any way exhaustive.
DBZ takes Disney-tier violence to the next level by actually having contact and some sort of consequence. The problem is that that is only "amazing" if all you know is Disney. When you get older and are now exposed to violence in a social/psychological context (where it gets its meaning), you just can't go back anymore. DBZ is, "Dumbfuck and his cheerleading squad fight purely invented villains." 300 episodes of filler -- even the fights are 99% filler.
Violence is the final means to resolve a conflict. In adult entertainment, the conflict (story) is the point and the violence is merely a plot element. But in DBZ the enemies are created for no reason but to generate a fight. The violence is the only point. So you have completely scripted violence with no meaning after. The enemies had no logical place in the universe, no path, they're just there, and only there to be overcome by Goku. And Goku isn't real -- he's a brainless faggot who would never be able to make it in society. He's only there to be the clueless idealist to fight the bad guys.
It is banal and tedious.

No one will ever take your seriously with that username

First off, you can seriously go and fuck yourself for all the "You haven't obtained the grand wisdom that I have in your puny years, child!!!" condescension.
Secondly, Dragonball Z is supposed to be simple. A guy with magic powers getting beat down and fighting his way back is something that people of all ages can enjoy.
Also, you say that DBZ's enemies were "created for no reason to generate a fight". You could say that about any fucking villain in anything, for example, "Bane was created for no reason but to fight Batman.".

As does Dragonball Z. Frieza was a galactic emperor would ruled over many planets and was going to planet Namek to invade and take over that planet as well, but Goku and the gang step in to stop him. It's not all that complex, but it's still a story. It isn't just "Muhahahaha! I am evil and will kill you all! Die!" as you seem to think.

That's a position, not a story. Story would be how he got there; why he wanted the position. Instead we have, "I am a bad guy and I head the bad guys."
Seriously, the Rowdieruff Boys from the Powerpuff Girls have more of a backstory than that, and they were in, what, two episodes?

Bitching about Dragon Ball Z not dealing with social/psychological context is stupid. Why? Because it's a gag action action comic made for kids. Expecting adult complexity in something like DBZ is laughably moronic.
Dragon Ball Z isn't complex, but it wasn't supposed to be. It's like a roller coaster. You let it take you through all of it's twists and turns without having a care in the world.
Complaining about action being the first resort? In an action series? Yeah, seems legit.
You still believe that the enemies were there just for a fight? All of the main villains, excluding maybe Buu, had reasons behind their motives, and didn't just fight Goku for no reason whatsoever. Meaningless? The fight between Goku and Frieza meant avenging the Saiyan race and all of the other people Frieza killed. The fight with Cell meant deciding the fate of the Earth.
"He's only there to be the clueless idealist to fight the bad guys."? .......And Ichigo isn't? Regardless, Goku is still a likable character, unlike Mr. Bland Ichigo. He's not supposed to be a realistic character.
You are one of the most hypocritical people I have ever seen. Bleach resorts to violence first, but it's perfectly okay when it does it. Bleach has terrible amounts of filler, but it's okay when it does it. Bleach is just as shallow as DBZ is, but it's okay when it does it. This is your way of thinking, and it's pretty stupid.

Don't worry, by claiming that nobody hates DBZ, you're bound to get several replies from both anons and users alike expressing hatred for DBZ.

You mean comments from the one user that has multiple accounts and likes to sit in DBZ content saying shit as an anon.

Never said posting pictures of ponies on FJ counted in that category. I'm talking about people who think they're better than you because they watch my little pony, and keep pestering you to watch it and say it's good or whatever. I don't have much of a problem with my little pony of FJ. If you don't like it, just scroll past it.

What sense does any cosmetic apparel make? Why would you wear earrings, for example? Why would you wear wristbands?
Why not just wear uncoloured shirts and track pants, considering they only serve a practical purpose and don't implement such arbitrary and nonsensical things as colour and design?
