Dragon Ball has had a long, storied history. This is a franchise that extends far beyond Super Saiyans, Battle Power, và villains whose ashes literally need to be obliterated from existence for them khổng lồ actually die. Naturally, a series that’s run as long as Dragon Ball has gone through many phases. Although the original manga was simply titled Dragon Ball, Toei chose khổng lồ split their adaptation up.

Not just that, but the anime extended into an official sequel in the khung of Dragon Ball GT. Even without Toriyama’s involvement, Dragon Ball has been continuously pumping out new nội dung for years. The đoạn clip games took the place of the anime as the “main” sản phẩm for a time, but Battle of Gods and Dragon Ball Super have ensured that the series’ anime adaptations are here lớn stay – even if 2per is still nowhere in sight.

Updated on November 3, 2022 by Renan Fontes: Watching long Ball in order is no easy feat. The anime has been running since 1986, only going off air for a few years at a time before coming back in full force. Even with Super out of comission, the Super rồng Ball Heroes anime has slowly but steadily going strong since 2018. With only a matter of time left before a second Super anime finally happens, now's the best chance to lớn watch through the entire long Ball series in order.

1. Rồng Ball (1986 - 1989)

153 Episodes

Simply titled Dragon Ball, the series’ original anime adaptation is arguably the best of the bunch. Not only does it adapt its six-story arcs far better than Dragon Ball Z does its four, but Dragon Ball also doesn’t suffer from nearly as much inconsistent animation or awkward filler as its successors. What filler contributions Dragon Ball makes tends to showroom depth to the main story, expanding what was already present in the manga.

Interestingly, Dragon Ball’s shift into Dragon Ball Z can be traced back khổng lồ the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai, when most of the staff that'd ảo diệu DBZ started working on the series. It’s noticeable, too. In terms of pacing, the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai is much slower than everything that came before, really getting the most out of every single moment. While this style of pacing would become a massive problem for Dragon Ball Z, it manages lớn give DB's last tournament some added gravitas.

In many respects, Dragon Ball Z is just a continuation of Dragon Ball. The first episode aired one week after its predecessor's last, và DBZ’s introductory episode was even scripted as a Dragon Ball episode–not Dragon Ball Z episode 1. Still, the opportunity khổng lồ rebrand helped pump lifeblood into the anime’s staff, budget, và popularity. For as messy Dragon Ball Z gets, there’s a reason it’s so overwhelmingly popular.

Beyond the at times excellent adaptations of Toriyama’s fight choreography (and the outstanding performances from the Japanese cast), Dragon Ball Z opens with Toei’s best effort as far as Dragon Ball goes: the Saiyan arc. This is a near-perfect adaptation that reaches movie quality animation during the fight between Goku & Vegeta. Dragon Ball Z made a statement early on that it was larger than life. Although only covering four story arcs, Dragon Ball Z would go on to be the longest-running Dragon Ball anime.

Akira Toriyama may have been done with Dragon Ball by the end of the Buu arc, but Toei still wanted khổng lồ milk the dragon for what it was worth. In spite of the series’ decreasing popularity following the end of the manga, Toei went ahead with one last sequel series: Dragon Ball GT. Completely rooted in new material, GT would be an anime-only follow-up to lớn the Buu arc.

It’s worth noting that while GT is not canon to the main series, it is canon to the original anime’s continuity. Toei’s original animated canon for Dragon Ball consisted of the first Dragon Ball adaptation, Dragon Ball Z, và finally Dragon Ball GT. The last episode of DBZ even transitions directly into the first episode of GT with a next episode preview at the over of the former.

Dragon Ball GT was fairly unpopular và remains disliked within the fandom, even if its reputation has improved slightly within recent years. Uninspired, derivative, & generally filled with lackluster fight choreography, Dragon Ball GT was a lousy lưu ý to end the series’ anime continuity on.

Coinciding with Dragon Ball Z’s 20th anniversary, Toei decided to lớn recut DBZ to be more in-line with Akira Toriyama’s original manga. Kai sports re-edited scenes, a lower episode count, a brand new score by talented plagiarist Kenji Yamamoto, và brand new performances from the cast. Some of this is really hit or miss depending on the arc, but Kai makes for a much brisker digestion of Dragon Ball Z.

Fans will miss out on a lot of what made Dragon Ball Z the anime such a great experience, but Kai does offer a nice reinterpretation of Z’s first three story arcs, notably making the Frieza arc actually bearable in animated form. The Saiyan arc isn’t quite as good, but the rescore arguably suits this portion of the story better, and Kai ending at the Cell arc is a fine resolution.

On a whole, Kai: The Final Chapters is a disappointing follow up to lớn the original Dragon Ball Kai. While Kai was by no means perfect, including filler that very easily could have been cut at times, it at least had a clear vision & didn’t have a green tint perverting the entire screen. With Kenji Yamamoto fired, The Final Chapters also suffers from a painfully generic (and annoying) score.

The Final Chapters does not cut enough khổng lồ justify its existence. The animated Buu arc still feels quite bloated, và the Japanese version features worse performances on a whole. If nothing else, the English dub is actually quite good, following in Kai’s footsteps, so there’s plenty of merit in watching both Kai and The Final Chapters in English over Dragon Ball Z.

No one could have possibly expected Dragon Ball Super to suddenly over with the Tournament of Power. The anime is been done for years now, and, while there's been more canon animated content in the form of Dragon Ball Super: Broly and Dragon Ball Super: Super Heroes, the manga has essentially taken the reins as the main property.

Still, Dragon Ball Super is quite an interesting series in its own right. Plagued by scheduling problems, DBS’ early run was generally lousy and a disappointment to lớn many fans. Starting with the Goku black arc, however, Super managed to lớn bring in a good bit of Dragon Ball Z’s tension. By the time the Tournament of power nguồn hit, Dragon Ball Super seemed to lớn be in legitimately good shape production-wise.

While the anime suffers narratively, not too unlike Dragon Ball GT, Super manages to ground itself better within the context of the series. Even when Super’s dropping the ball with plot & character development, there’s almost always a slice of life episode around the corner khổng lồ remind fans why they love Dragon Ball: the characters.

Dragon Ball Super may be over, but Super long Ball Heroes has been keeping the animated side of the franchise busy since 2018. At only around 6 minutes long, it’s important to lớn recognize that Super dragon Ball Heroes’ episodes are a different breed; they tell a story, but really only for promotional purposes.

Still, Super long Ball Heroes manages to bust out some good animation rarely, và the sheer insanity of the plot is honestly kind of fun to lớn indulge in. This is an anime that goes balls-to-the-walls and understands that it can bởi vì pretty much whatever it wants, whenever it wants. There’s merit in that for a series lượt thích Dragon Ball.
