Default Re: Naruto the next dragon ball, Or just to overhyped

yea that is what i mean by kiddie, the face bugging out thing. i was gonna try to watch the first season yesterday. i'm gonna give it another shot. i think i might have missed the boat on this one though, i might have outgrown this style. the last series i watched was moribito and it was very serious in tone throughout. im not saying i need it to be dry and serious. i just always felt after watching some of naruto that it was less than, compared to other shows i grew up with and was watching at the time.

i am going to watch the first season, so who knows i might come to like it. i haven't seen it since it aired on tv way back.

Its hard to judge since Naruto hasn't finished yet I mean it could go down the crapshoot just like how Bleach has seriously gone down in quality.

I would say Dragonball beats out Naruto for me but so far Naruto Shippuden easily beats out DBZ because the Cell/Buu saga(still fun to watch) was just rinse and repeat.

DB/DBZ is iconic but Naruto over time could grow to become that.

I can understand how it looks when you watch it on tv, especially disney channel and it's dubs(wow).

It's got all that studio produced filler and it's about kids so they really push it. I never thought I'd be one of those manga geeks that says this but the material is so different often. However when the anime does it's take on some of the more epic/somber moments it really adds and really shines.

You may want to check out the "wiki" guide in order to avoid the filler. I did that with bleach(later on) and I feel I saved myself from hating it.

i feel that if the show is good the filler should be as well. like with cowboy bebop or samurai champloo. the filler episodes were like i said before just fun departures. if i am really engrossed in the world and characters i usually just want to explore it as much as possible, regardless of story arc.

The Dragon Ball Fillers were usually interesting and funny, not the same with Naruto however, but the 100% filler show called Dragon Ball GT was quite bad

i'd say the biggest problem was that the dragonball characters became too powerful, the threats had to keep up. i liked dragon ball because for most of the series it was simple. you train with weights, your speed and strength increased. so the characters were faster and stronger than most people. not until end of the series did we see all these energy beams flying around. then they had to deal with everyone shooting energy in dbz which got more complicated.

i still like dragon ball the best of all the 3 series. i did like seeing them grow up and have kids though. dbz becomes a chore to watch on some sagas. gt they tried to bring it back to the fun and adventure of db, but the characters were just too powerful.

GT did try to bring the anime back to the original, pretty obvious in recreating so many things. But the storyline was just terrible along with the humor. However, GT doesn't affect how I see the series as a whole since I treat it as a filler like I do with any other anime I watch.

Some people here underrate Dragon Ball, sure when you look at it has a lot of problems, but when you look at Citizen Kane or many other classics with a modern view you will obviously find a lot of flaws. DB is a great work of its time and paved the way to most animes/ mangas we see today. Almost every shonen takes something from it, willingly or unwilignly, that how important it was.

At first it seems to do it well, but now it's really tiring that everybody gets a Jesus Christ kind of death.

One Piece is the best-selling manga of all time, having broken every record made by Dragon Ball, in 2012 it sold 23,464,866 copies, while Naruto is in 3rd place, having sold 6,495,240 copies. OP basically ocupies the 1st and 2nd place (Twice of Naruto and Bleach combined)

In the USA it doesn't seem to catch up due to the reputationn 4kids dub gave it, but while Naruto is still more popular in most countries OP is catching up very well and has outsold all other mangas in countries besides Japan.

Another factor is Naruto ending soon, while One Piece still has in least a decade to end. I like Naruto but One Piece is definitelly the new DB, from it's creativeness to the amazing fights.
