| I love Dragonball Z

On Kids Next Door tonight, they did a takeoff of DBZ. It was especially funny because the way they drew Numbuh 4 (who was being Goku) was like how people who can't draw very well draw Goku. You know, all fat and stuff.|
I love episodes where each character tells his or her version of the story, and it's animated to match the character's personality. In that KND ep, #1's story was all 3-d like a videogame, #2's was like a comic book hero, #3 was like a little girl's drawings, and #5 was jazztastic Pink Pantherish. And, of course, as I said before, #4 was Goku. There's a similar episode of Ed, Edd & Eddy where Eddy's story involved the neighborhood kids looking especially goofy and looking up to him as a hero, Double-D's story had everyone looking perfect and the other Eds cowering to his scolding, and Ed's story involved mutants.
It reminds me of once when we translated one line of an Aiko song, and Kym thought it implied one thing, my sister thought it implied another thing, and I thought it implied something else.
Another great plot is when the main characters decide to be each other for a day. Like when I used to switch with people on IRC. Man, I miss IRC. Sortof. Like I ever get online anymore.
Anyway, the point is, Dragonball Z is great. Not, like, quality-wise, but you know, it's enjoyable. As far as quality, well, the animation sucks and everything that wasn't in the original manga is crap.
