To interrupt. I'm shocked this thread is 1/3 the length of ASOIAF thread.
No one in this thread is. And I dont care about ASOIAF. At all. The books are 1000x better and the the show is just stupid sometimes. But i dont go in that thread to tell people it's overhyped and i dont care about it. Because im not a dick. How much Japanese animation do you watch? Did you start watching DBZ as a kid?
and it went on for much too long
possibly. That's the only argument of yours I'll take seriously. I didnt much care for the Buu saga, but it had its moment.
all they did was make the villains more and more powerful without logical explanation.
The explanation was there and it was logical. The saiyans were powerful, Freeza was there more powerful leader, the androids were futuristic robots built to fight the future characters, Cell was a combination of all the best fighters including the robots. All logical, all explained.
Plus I really didn't like that I could skip 18 episodes, still be on the same fight, and be caught up in a 30 second explanation.
18 is a bit of an exaggeration, alot of stuff happens in fights, like characters switching off, changing form, powering up, arriving, etc...
And their worst crime, they made death meaningless. If someone dies, no one gives a damn since the dragonballs simply revive someone.
Can't be wished back twice. Except through the Namek dragon balls, which arent always available.
That's a horrible crime for a TV series to commit since it destroys the most dire threats.
Multiple times in the series that is a real threat, plus dying and losing a fighter during a battle is a big deal. Finding, collecting, and using the dragon balls is not instant and cannot be done an infinite number of times.
