It almost seems strange to go back to where the Dragonball franchise began after such a lengthy and expansive universe of television series’ and animated films followed this 1986 cult classic. Manga Entertainment’s strange decision to release Dragonball on DVD in the UK after its two successors, is admittedly part of the reasoning behind the jarring effect of re-watching the shows first ever season. Having said that, returning to the series’ roots after watching the epic finale with the culmination of 11 years worth of storytelling in Dragonball Gt, does have its up sides.
Dragonball Z is easily the most famous and recognizable series of the anime trilogy, and over time that has made it incredibly easy to forget the superb quality of the franchise’s original show.
