Dragonball: Revelation

We have been going on a Dragonball and Dragonball Z Abridged lately, after catching up on Team Four Star’s Dragonball Z Abridged series on YouTube.  To my delight, Hulu has added all of Dragonball and Dragonball Z to their library.

My introduction to the Dragonball franchise began when I was 11, when I would watch Dragonball Z on Toonami every day after school.  Dragonball was never shown on television when I was a child.

Dragonball Z is notorious for drawing out its story to unbelievable lengths.  Entire episodes are wasted on two men staring at each other and/or screaming at each other.  It is the only television show that I know of where the selling point of a recent special edition release was LESS footage.  (Despite this flaw, my brother and I loved the show.)

Since Dragonball came before Dragonball Z, I expected it to follow this same formula.  I am shocked to discover every episode of Dragonball furthers the plot in some way.  There are clearly defined beginning, middle and ends.  WHAT A MINI REVELATION!

Lets see if I still feel this way when I finish the series.

Let us know what you think!
