Because for some odd reason DBZ takes out everything that is actually good, gross, or sexual

Dragonball was written to have a beginning, middle and an end, whereas DBZ was artificially lengthened by editorial mandate against the Toriyama's wishes.

Dragon Ball also used to have cartoon animal characters. Not to mention it used to be goofier and more aimed to ADVENTURES than constant combat & power-ups too.

I love both, but I have to admit, young Goku is the best:)

DBZ was just repeating itself. Strong enemy, Goku and the others punching his face, 1 million hours powerup scream, everybody gets supersajan, killing enemy, another strong enemy, punching his face, bla bla bla.

I think DBZ is a lot better when it comes to action but the original TRUMPS it with presentation. I'm guessing that it's because we were new to the characters so we expected a lot more. I do adore DBZ more that DB because of nostalgia purposes but if you tell me whats wrong with it I could probably tell you a dozen more examples. Off the top of my head, my main nitpicks are that the stories paced poorly after a while, Almost every character except Goku (well the sayians in general) devolved into cannon fodder, The ending of the Buu saga felt like a MAJOR cliff hanger leading up to DB:GT, Chi Chi was an annoying hypocrite, Bulma became useless (much like most of the more human and non fighting friend characters), and there's a lot more I can rant about.

Dragonball Z, perdió esa esencia que tenía Dragonball, Goku entrenaba y le ponía mas. No usaba tantos ataques de energía ni tenia tanto relleno. Además Krilin era mas bueno y no tan cobarde como lo hicieron después.
Yo pienso igual, Dragonball es mucho mejor que Dragonball Z

Because everything was so round and more mystical. DBZ is like the Michael Bay version of Dragonball sometimes :l The new movie was amaaazing though, animation was stellar and the story was pretty solid.

Haha, yeah! The original Dragonball is so such a fun-loving, goofy adventure! I suppose Dragonball Z is too po-faced and drawn out and full of blah blah. That is my most eloquent analysis.
Gorsh, I adore the sense of dynamism in your drawings! So much life. Rad!

Because Dragonball has a sense of adventure and fun and draws heavily from Eastern mythology, and Dragonball Z is... freakishly large-haired and large-muscled men taking twenty episodes to charge up an attack.

Anyway. Beautiful drawings. I love the liveliness you imbue all of your art with.
