    Why Vegeta...why haven't you knocked up Bulma again yet? She honestly looks like a 30 something year old trying to look like a teenager with that hairdo.

    Saitama is fucking over rated, his one punch will only work in his universe so stop using no limit fallacies.

    Well, while it would probably work in the dragon ball universe (Remember, Arale destroying the moon is canon!) It wouldn't do as much as people think. I mean, can he destroy planets with it? Because Goku can destroy planets with a Kamehameha, so...

    Oh, please! The "training" that Saitama did to gain his powers, is stuff Goku's far surpassed. Forget push-up, sit-ups and running--Goku's trained under exponentially-increased gravity, in the afterlife and became a SSJ God. Hell, even Krillin could probably beat Saitama, if some dumb routine exercises is the source of One Punch Man's strength. Saitama is a parody character and nothing to be compared to other shonen heroes.

    While I agreed that the original Dragon Ball's Goku has undergo superhuman training but at this point we still have no idea what is the source of Saitama's true strength, I don't think just normal routine training can make someone into a freak.

    But that aside, why are people comparing One-punch Man with Dragon Ball? While admittedly the former did uses parody of the latter, however, OPM is more down to earth in term of story-line, I mean no afterlife or things like that.

    And Dragon Ball Super look to me to be a spin-off than actual continuation of where they left off.

    Yes, I have heard many action manga artists of today saying they were heavily inspired by Dragonball.

    People enjoy that kind of stuff. Of course they're going to make something similar. But even if it's basically the same thing, it won't be exactly the same. The same thing can be done many different ways.

    Thats because you're comparing the original DBZ to today's shounen series. In the 90s DBZ was more magical and timeless.

    But now with new series appearing, new stories, realities and universes, DBZ doesnt compare anymore yet it still retains its legendary awesomeness.

    Thats also why its considered the King of Shounen.Do you think a series like One Piece would be what it is today if Oda wasnt inspired by DBZ to begin with?

    @23:02 that precisely what I'm talking about mate, people still doesn't realize or doesn't want to believe that series from two decades ago have "inferior" visuals than what we have now, the art styles of manga/anime is rapidly evolving. There is no way to appeal to both new and old fans alike while keeping things as original as possible, hence a spin-off.

    It is not that series from the 90's was more magical and timeless, but that the creators back then have more freedom of expressions compared to modern days where we need to deal with SJWs or feminist groups.

    I am pretty sure many mangaka of this day were inspired by all those veteran mangaka whom brought us great classic works.

    I kinda had the hope that Frieza would be more threatening this time instead of the chump he was in the movie.

    I was fucking wrong. Even fucking GT was better than this.

    20 years ago: Wow! Goku beating Frieza after a new transformation! Great!!!

    Today: Hey, there is a new DB Anime! Right now they are showing... Goku beating Frieza after a new transformation ... ... ... ... wow?

    Anyway. This show is pure nostalgic children anime, nothing more. One Punch Man is (or was) waaaay better show than DB Super. I take Saitama over "blue" Goku any time.

    Saitama "overrated" ??? Please. This character work perfect in HIS universe. If the great Saitama is overrated we can say the same for Goku (+10). Really... SS God just because 4 plus one unborn saiyans gave they energy, thats more ridiculous than Saitama's training.

    The animation quality looks worse, but everthing else looks better.

    Its taking its time, and Freiza didnt die in 30 seconds like he did in the movie. So its already much better.

    Movies whether it's animated or not usually have much bigger budgets to work with, not to forget they also have more time, unlike anime per episode which have a schedule or deadline to comply with, in addition to lower budgets for the latter if the show isn't top-rated.

    Indeed, but the movie could have been a trilogy or something.

    The fighting in the movie was impressive, but way to short, and made Frieza look way to pathetic. Goku didnt even break a sweat, he didnt even try, and he still won.

    Seriously, we're talking about Dragon Ball, how come Toei is not able to put a decent budget for this TV show? I mean, take One Punch Man for example, the animation quality is fairly close to the Dragon Ball movie.

    It's Toei fault if the animators have half or even less of the budget of a normal TV show. I think they hired inexperienced animators to get the work done cheaper.

    Fuck you Toei.

    @00:21 One Punch Man is a recent series and still on-going which is why there are more willing sponsors for this show. Whereas, Dragon Ball is an old series which has always been a show for older kids and above.

    If you are to search Sancom, I think some years ago, there were an article on wages of anime animators, they don't earn much and this job is often outsourced to either China or Korea because it is even cheaper. If you think studios are making big money then you seriously need to change that mindset. They need to pay other staff members besides animators, definitely not an easy trade to be in.

    Is it just me, or does everyone, especially Frieza, look more japanese?

    The creator is Japanese, what is so strange about characters looking more like their race? I mean just go watch any western cartoons and come tell me the characters doesn't look western?

    That is what Character Design for anime does, depending on the skills of the artist, the characters' appearance can look very close to the source material or completely took on another style. This is especially true when the source have inferior looking characters like with most Shoujo titles.

    Its strange because they are rapidly approaching the point where we only know its the Gokus and Vegetas and the BLACK NIGGER LIPS guy because of their clothes and the yellow hair nonsense.

    They certainly don't look like their DBZ counterparts...

    It's strange because in anime do they design their characters like racially ambiguous and rarely make them look Japanese.
    Characteristics like eyes, skin and hair are used like symbolical and not to show nationally.

    The "cuter" look whether in male or female is of eastern theme, note that Touhou mean Eastern. You can find this style even in Manhua (Chinese) or Manhwa (Korean). Of course for series using more realistic art styles like Shingeki no Kyojin, you can see that the characters appears to look more western.

    But since Dragon Ball is set in a fantasy universe not anything like our real world, who are we to insist that aliens must look or act like certain races?

    Man, I hate the animation quality and style of Dragon Ball Super. It's like some second-rate project from college students or fan art done on YouTube. After the original animation's more intricate animation quality and truer-to-manga style, I just can't take DBS seriously. I also don't know why they chose to make Bulma look like she's 15 again.

    It was always a kids show. The difference now is that is Dragon Ball isn't as top dog like it used to be back in the 80s/90s

    I wouldnt call the original DB a kid's show considering there were quite a few ecchi moments with Bulma being naked or topless

    It is a kid's show alright, if you knew Dr.Slump which also have ecchi scenes and Dragon Ball is set in the same universe as Dr.Slump, both series is by the same author Toriyama Akira.

    Yeah, there were a few ecchi moments with Bulma but those were very mild and only lasted a couple of episodes.

    It has always been a kid's show, it's just that kids in Japan don't have the fuck censored out of everything. That's what I was told by Japanese friends. They said the West is scary for trying to shield kids from everything.

    If you can't take it seriously, it could mean you are no longer within the intended target audience age group. I'm puzzled why people keep saying to let this series die but cannot deal with a spin-off story?

    Truer-to manga style you said? But how many youngsters are willing to watch them is the problem, haven't seen enough spoiled brats posting shit everywhere?
