Dragon Ball Z back to reviews
I feel the same way about this as I did about Sailor Moon. Most of the characters are just stereotypes with hardly any different sides to them or explanations for why they do the things they do or exploration. Especially the villains-they're mostly (with some exceptions) pure evil for no reason whatsoever, do the things they do for no good reason than wanting certain things, and have no other sides to them and aren't very realistic or well developed. The plot is just the same thing over and over again and there's no point in watching it since everyone already knows what's gonna happen. There's gonna be a new bad guy, they'll go "OMG THIS BAD GUY IS SO STRONG WE'LL NEVER BEAT THEM!" then go super saiyan 9000 and beat them. A lot of the episodes are just watching fight sequences of a bunch of flying fists, or them going "THE WORLD WILL BLOW UP IN A SECOND" and 30 minutes later the world still hasn't blown up.

I do understand why it's popular. Cause of all the action and cause little boys wish that was what their lives were like. Wish fulfillment.
You're just one giant walking personification of Seinfeld Is Unfunny aren't you.

I don't disagree with your points but the presentation of this review is abysmal. Do try to organize your thoughts better. Also, your last point is very condescending. You seem to think people must have a childish personal hangup to find entertainment in something you don't. Not a good way to start a discussion.

So you open this review up by bashing Sailor Moon, and yet your username is "sailormoon 22"?

Unsuccessful troll is unsuccessful. Seriously, come up with better material.

Even if the reviewer is trolling, I actually agree with her points. I know people at my high school who still idolize Goku, but say anime is "gay" and "for japanese nerds". I never liked Dragonball Z; Not only was I a kid when it was on, but it was nothing but fighting and filler. I prefered the original Dragonball because of it's humor, but according to Z fans, that makes me a "fag". Not only is DBZ of poor quality, but it breeds bad fans.

I think it's unfair to blame the work for a group of people it may attack. Every piece of work has some bad fans, doesn't mean it was the work's fault, it means that's just the way those people are.

...Yeah, I guess. My bad, sorry.
comment #14480 MrMallard 28th May 12
I should read the original sometime...

Mr Mallard, I think that you should check out Dragon Ball Z Kai, it has none of the filler of the original.

Oh, and Sailormoon 22, go vent out your feelings towards this series, THEN do a review, because you have obviously let your negative emotions and bias taint your view on this.

sailormoon22, to paraphrase A Troll in Central Park: "You're a bad troll, a very bad troll".

.....This is dead already. There is no point "calling out" someone who has been gone for two years.

This was probably made with troll intentions. And yet... he's fundamentally right.

No, but trying to talk to the author on an old review is kind of pointless
comment #23022 Hylarn 24th Jan 14
^ Well, at least he's gone. And good riddance.
