I won't waste time reviewing Dragonball because it think that by now most people know it and already have their own opinion about it.
I'll just focus on Kai and the changes it has


Story 10/10.
Ok, so the story in dragonball has never been really complex or deep, but it's still fun to watch.
In my opinion, the biggest improovement Kai has over DBZ is that all the anoying fillers are gone and now the story goes, mostly, acording to the manga. No more eternal power charging, no more eternal "he is so strong" internal monologues a no more feeling that nothing really happened in the last 10 read more

That does not make me upset, as we can all go back and watch the original againl if the original is what we want, but I think that it should be addressed fairly openly. I will also address art, since that is the other big change.

I hope no one minds the spoilers, as I am assuming that most read more
