Dragon Ball is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama and was later adapted into an anime series. The story follows an alien named Goku throughout his childhood to adulthood as he trains in martial arts. In the story Goku searches for mystical orbs called Dragon Balls, if all seven are found a dragon will appear and grant you a wish.
Dragon Ball - Goku is a child during the time of the Dragon ball Series
Dragon Ball Z - Goku is a young Adult during the first part of the “Z” Series. He has a son name Gohan, with his long time rival/friend Chi-Chi. They later have another son named Gotten (who is a splitting image of Goku).
Dragon Ball GT- Goku Gets transformed into a kid again during the GT series. He journeys with Trunks (Rival Vegeta’s son) and his granddaughter Pan (Gohan’s Daughter).
Dragon Ball Kai and Dragon Ball z Kai - The Kai series is basically just a shorter more to the point version of Dragon ball, and Dragon Ball Z to the end of the “Cell Saga“. It is also available in 1080p….
What I Like…
- Action Packed
- Dubbed voice action should be the standard
What I don’t like…
- Pacing was terrible before the Kai series was introduced (15min for grunting is a little extreme)
- GT (honestly I kind of forced myself to watch some of GT series and I Love dragon ball…)
