This is the one where they get attacked by androids that are literally walking stereotypes. SPOILERS: After the pimp and the Native American are killed by the z-fighters, who all of a sudden decide to stop fucking around, the redneck one absorbs their circuits and shit and inexplicably turns into a giant purple dude who can only be defeated by a total asspull. Good movie though.

No need for spoiler tags guys, everyone's all up to date on DBZ here.

oddeye
Alright so I guess he is kinda more blue than purple. I originally watched this on a fucked up CRT.

TeenerTot
Ugh. I was working at a toy company when this was popular. We were required to watch a box set of this crap, and I swear, like four consecutive episodes were just ONE LONG BATTLE. Or maybe we were kinda drunk. Or maybe something in-between.
Xenocide
Only four episodes for one battle? That barely counts as a skirmish in DBZ terms.

My favorite moment in all the annals of terrible anime is the time when Goku is fighting this villain, and he announces that he's rigged things so the entire planet will explode in two minutes. Nine episodes later, they're still fighting and the countdown still isn't over.

TeenerTot
Yeah...maybe the boxed set was all one battle, and I just checked out after four episodes.

infinite zest
I was in Japan during the height of DBZ's popularity (maybe it was GT by that point.. can't remember) anyway it hadn't made its way to the states yet and I thought it was the coolest thing. I was also 13 years old. Looking back it was a pretty dumb show but better than pretty much any cartoon (let the debate commence) in the US at the time, and it got me into Akira Toriyama's work in general. In fact, Chrono Trigger was pretty much the reason why I lifeguarded summers and worked at the Dairy Queen so I could save up for a SNES, so that's something.

Of course I was one of those kids, as I imagine most of you are, who would wake up at 5:30 AM to watch the butchered Funimation version, so I stopped paying attention after they got to Namek or something like that. The show meanders, but so do most shows. Overall I like it.

This also needs some sort of "also his balls are" tag.

TeenerTot
I suggest "also his balls are bruised."

Xenocide
Your claim of it being the best cartoon is the raving of a madman, but it was better than any American ACTION cartoon, if only because it hit its peak a couple of years before Batman: The Animated Series came along.

DBZ wasn't what I would call good, but at least it makes an impression, which is more than the glut of toy commercials we got over here could manage.

il fiore bel
"also his balls are inert"?

BHWW
The superior interpretation of this was, but of course, "Buttlord GT".

"OK, now we can fight."
"Jesus dude, can you even move?"

FABIO
Scientific fact: Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy only took off because the SNES couldn't fully realize Toriyama's horrendous art.

"My favorite moment in all the annals of terrible anime is the time when Goku is fighting this villain, and he announces that he's rigged things so the entire planet will explode in two minutes. Nine episodes later, they're still fighting and the countdown still isn't over"

They were fighting at super-speed! Every episode was like 9 seconds of normal human perception time!

Quad9Damage
Of course after Freeza is beaten there's like 30 seconds left and Goku spends it bumbling around for an escape ship as the planet implodes into apocalyptic ruin. The planet blows up. Goku still survives. It's the most deus ex machina moment in the entire series this side of anytime the Dragon Balls are used, and just one of many examples of Toei telling Toriyama "no, fuck you, you don't get your way, Goku lives."

oddeye
Yeah dude, that's what I was told in a Games Workshop when I was like 14 (serious). He wanted to end it numerous times before or something and ESPECIALLY with Freeza but was forced to continue "by sheer pressure from the fans".

When I was a kid I watched the original Dragon Ball (not Z or GT) and it was easily and absolutely my favorite cartoon. It was colorful, creative, funny, full of crazy adventures, great characters and some martial arts fighting.

When I was a teenager this Dragon Ball Z bullshit came along and it completely lost me. Just an endless string of boring, poorly animated fights that just went on and on and on. From the little I actually watched I could gather that the whole show's structure was "Alien superbeing comes along and kicks all of the good guy's asses, until one of the good guys EVOLVES (represented by a change in hairstyle) and kicks the bad guy's ass, until ANOTHER MORE POWERFUL alien superbeing arrives and kicks everyone's ass, until another of the good guys EVOLVES and kicks his ass. Repeat".

Quad9Damage
@oddeye Toriyama also wanted to bring the series back to its slapsticky gag manga roots after Cell with Gohan's wacky adventures in high school, even going so far as killing off Goku (permanently, for real this time) and setting up an elaborate and dramatic "son inheriting his father's legacy" scene that still makes nerds cry.

Again, Toriyama was met with "sheer pressure." 'Dragon Ball' is a lot like 'Supernatural' in the "succumb to the worst part of your fanbase" department.

Quad9Damage
For fuck's sake, the first page of the followup volume after Cell even has Roshi forth-walling with something like "Goku may be gone for good, but that son of his will take his place!" Christ, I'd be shocked if Toriyama didn't feel like the biggest bukkake target after he drew the final panel.

Gmork
Misuse of the "anime that doesn't suck" tag. Also, this isn't Z, must be GT or some garbage because I never watched GT. By that time I was moving on from those kinds of kiddish anime and delving into Key the metal idol and such.
Azmo23
i also watch adult animes for mature brains

oddeye
This is from from Super Android 13 which is one of the god awful dragonball movies.

il fiore bel
Maybe it was supposed to be "anime MOMENT that doesn't suck."

I enjoyed Dragon Ball, but found Z to be kind of cute when it wasn't aggressively homoerotic or being completely stupid and insensitive about the concept of death.

And GT started off so awful that I just gave up.

Gmork
That explains it - I missed most of the movies.

Quad9Damage
I move for a revival of the "Dude you okay?" tag.

Quad9Damage
Must be a different version. The one I remember had Linkin Park playing over it.
oddeye
See my reply above.

oddeye
Actually don't, sorry guv.

Billy the Poet
Wait, the blond screaming guy and the black-haired screaming guy are the SAME screaming guy?
Xenocide
Tell me, Bruce, what do you make of these wild tales of the vigilante "Bat-man?"

oddeye
Can you tell me something about transformation?

Caminante Nocturno
Sailor Moon had much better writing than Dragonball ever did.
oddeye
Never seen that one but from what I gather it's basically power rangers with school girls and little to no panty shots?

Nikon
I agree with Cam.

Knocked the blond right out of him.

Where were YOU when Son Goku got punched in the upper thigh?!!! Blaah blahablah labblahblah labblabblah waxing philisophic about 20 yr old anime while sitting at my cubicle circlejerk.





... And so forth.
Quad9Damage
Getting punched in the balls by a supervillain stronger than Yahweh and the Beyonder combined is an arbitrary endeavor in this series.

Like death.
