Dragon Ball Anime Review Web stories


Dragon ball is a starter anime for many of the anime fans and is also an inspiration for many of the manga writers in the Anime world. IF you have heard the world anime then you would have most probably heard Dragon Ball too. Dragon Ball Z was broadcasted in many countries in the Kids entertainment section but it also made its fan base in the hearts of teenagers and adults too.


Dragon Ball Z’s entire series focuses and revolves around the character named “Son Goku”.  The story moves on with the childhood of Son Goku and the people he meets in his journey.

It is named as Dragon ball because of the main concept that is used the whole story. The earth planet has 7 dragon balls that are distributed all over the world and if someone was able to find all the seven Dragon Balls, he can summon the Shenlong Dragon with the power of dragon balls. The Senlong Dragon is the Dragon that can fulfill any three wishes of the master of dragon ball. After the wishes are successfully fulfilled the dragon balls will again be distributed all over the world automatically.

Son Goku basically belongs from the strongest species in the Universe that is from the Saiyan’s race. As they are the strongest many other species plotted to destroy the Saiyans planet and completely destroy the name of the Saiyan species from the Universe. It was said that the Saiyans get stronger when they are exposed to a challenging and near-death situation.

The potential shown in the Saiyan’s race in the anime is literally limitless. Even the Saiyans themselves are unaware of the capabilities. When the planet of Saiyans was destroyed the Saiyans were able to save two of the kids to continue their species and they were Son Goku and the Prince of the Saiyans Vegeta-Sama. The entry of the Son Goku can be a little too much related to Superman’s story.

But believe me!! Son Goku is way stronger than superman. In fact, he is considered one of the strongest Anime characters in the entire history of Anime generation.

Why you should watch Dragon Ball Z?

Full of action and Awesome fights-

The one and only reason for anyone to watch Dragon Ball Z is Action!! Action and Action!!. If you are not a guy who likes super action series and a lot of fighting scenes, my friend this is not for you. This anime is really full of fights with such intensity that you will have a hard time tracking their movements and locations. As they always keep changing there fighting locations to the land, mid-air, in the lake, between the mountains and even into space.

Get ready to see a lot of destruction and explosions. If you see breaking mountain and planets Ehh!!  Don’t get excited over these petty things. You don’t know what things you are going to witness in this series.

Character Development and transformations-

Son Goku’s new transformation is enough to change the trending topics in the whole anime universe. This whole series is dependents on the character developments and their power-up methods. Let me make it clear for you screaming is the one and only method that the anime creators can think of when it comes to powering up the anime characters. But this anime is on a whole another level. You can hear between 1 min to even 20 min of straight screaming in this anime.

The transformation is literally the best part of this anime. The transformation is named Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3, Super Saiyan 4, and much more. There are things like fusion concepts too in this anime.

Training Motivation-

If you ask any anime fan who motivated them the most to go to the gym and train, you will definitely hear Goku and Goku only. It’s very rare that you will hear any other character’s name.

Son Goku

This anime contains a lot of training.  This anime Distribution is like 70 percent fight scenes 29 percent training and 1 percent contains any other thing that is important to the anime. It is really an anime that can motivate the hell out of you when it comes to training your body. The physique shown in the anime is really inspiring and motivating.


If you like Adventure Anime then you will love this Series as it is filled with adventure, Planets and their species, one of the best Anime ost and of course infinite action and legendary fights. You will find one of the best Villain characters in this anime. Freeza is one of the best anime villains that I have seen so far. I know many of the Dragon Ball fans will agree with me.

No of episodes and seasons-

There are two types of Dragon ball Z series the longer version is 291 episodes long

This series was re-worked and made into a small form (Cut out the fillers) with 98 episodes

The order in which you should watch Dragon ball series-

Pros and Cons-


Apart from all the reasons why you should watch Dragon ball, there are many other reasons for one to watch Dragon ball is that many Mangakas got their inspirations for this legendary manga. The writer and author of Naruto Shippuden(If you want to know more about Naruto then click Here-Naruto Shippuden) were also inspired by this Manga. Dragon Ball Z is one of the most respected series in the Anime world.

This series is also very long and entertaining. The anime is also filled with many funny moments and gags. If you are the person who broods every time when your favorite anime gets over quickly then is the best anime for you. This anime is so popular among the fans that after it ended the Dragon ball fans created the season called the Dragon ball GT And frankly speaking the storyline and the plot was great.

A real life action movie has also been released on Dragon Ball if you are interested Check out its trailer-


The most important thing that Dragon ball anime is missing is a nice story. This anime is all focused on the fights and the training, so this anime really lacks a good storyline. This is the most important thing that any anime would need but still, Dragon ball has done it without the good storyline only on the basis of the legendary fights and action.

The transformation can look somewhat repetitive as they are the same with the same name and with a different no. The Only Difference is the Hair color, its style, and its length. No offense some people find it cool but some of them really find it boring and think that it kills the moment. Apart from them, the screaming during the transformation is a little too much.

The Anime as a whole may feel childish and the moves are somewhat repetitive; though it is widely accepted by all age range people. And though the name of the anime is Dragon Ball the story later is really less focussed on the dragon ball part and you will find the characters later tossing it carelessly and using them for their pleasure.
