Never seen a single episode of anything related to it. No clue what the fuck it's about. Multiple series? Worth it /a/?
>>
First two series are okay.
>>
>>179216515
Why are there comparisons if they're the same story continued? Or are they different versions of the same story?
>>
>>179216592
DBZ Kai is a remaster so the same story as DBZ with less filler.
>>
>>179216480
Read the manga.
>>
>>179216673
I've heard one is supposed to be better than the other? Is that gonna be up to me?
>>
>>179216741
Haven't seen Kai so I can't say.
>>
>>179216740
Is there one single mange or are they spin-offs like the show?
>>
>>179216741
Up to you. I'd watch Kai and go back to the filler episodes of old DBZ if you really want to.
>>
Yes op, here is the definite tier list. It goes
DB>DBS>DBZ>DBGT>DBZshitbridged. Anything else is nostalgia glasses.
>>
>>179216774
I guess I gotta start somewhere

So fuck the remaster of DBZ got it
>>
The original series (just called Dragon Ball) is funny and a great time. Nothing else is worth watching
>>
>>179216802
Not him but I'm just going to read DB and stop there.
>>
Watch Dragon Ball and then Dragon Ball Kai, only nostalgia fags prefer Z since Kai cuts the filler and fixes some of the dialogue. Only filler worth watching is the Goku and Piccolo learn to drive episode. To compare how much Kai cuts, DBZ is 291 episodes and Kai is 167.

Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Kai, and Dragon Ball Super, watch in that order.
Avoid the English dubs for all of them, they completely shit on all of the characterization of the original, with most protagonists being unrecognizable.

You can watch abridged after finishing DBZ if you want, fun little parody series.
GT is shit, but the start was good so you can watch that too up until the Baby arc, after Z of course.

>>179216741
The visuals and voice acting are definitely better in Kai, but I love the Faulconer soundtrack, which Kai does not have.

Plenty of people here hate that soundtrack though so it's your call.
>>
>>179219480
If you're going to avoid the dubs then might as well watch z instead of kai, the kai jap dub is pretty bad compared to z

Oh, I almost forgot.
People that skip original Dragon Ball all get the death penalty.
>>
>>179216480
watch it from the very beginning.
one of the greats, shitposting aside
>>
Dragon ball kai has overall better dialogue. I say watch kai and then watch the Gohan vs cell fight in regular dbz.
>>
Read the manga that way you wont be in the part of the fanbase that thinks literal filler is canon

It's pretty good on its own, but it just doesn't match the tone of the scenes most of the time.
I'd love to see an original anime planned with his style in mind though, that be bitching.
>>
>>179219947
Also An Insilated Warrior is one of the top dbz songs in general. That’s shit slaps.
>>
>>179216780
One single manga. But there are a couple side stories that complement said manga and one sequel.

Basically:

-Dragonball.
-DB Minus/Ginga Patrol Jaco (side stories prequel of Dragonball)
-Dragonball Super.

Read the manga:

Don't bother watching the anime (DB/DBZ/Kai), nor the spin-offs (GT, Super). They are not worth your time. Just read the manga.
