Ichigo becomes a real badass once he achieves bankai and gains his hollow powers though.

I love the way the characters progress throughout the show and are always improving. The main characters are powerful, but they're not ridiculously overpowered like DBZ characers, And theres no whole episodes of just powering up bullsh*t either, and the show actually has character development, the cast is big yet the manga and anime both take their time exploring every character, giving their backstory. My favorite characters have to be Rukia, Kenpachi, Ikkaku, Urahara and Ishida, but there's a lot of great characters in the show IMO, though it's easy to be annoyed by the likes of Kon and Keigo.

One thing about the show that's hard to get over is the fact that no one important ever dies, which gets in the way of suspense, then again, a spirit would have to be pretty f*cking hard to kill.

i think i just got over the way the anime was done. i kept on reading the manga for a while but it just seems to have gotten totally pointless

and yea there was none of the powering up bullsh*t, but the manga for dbz kicked MAJOR ass. powering up took a max of a 1 page spread. maybe 2 pages if he so decided to make a really awesome picture

DBZ was great. My favorite of the series was the Freezia or whatever part, when goku first goes super saiyan.

The cell saga was pretty cool too.

IT was annoying how you would have to go through 10 episodes of people just flexing the muscles or powering up their kamehamaha or whatever before they started fighting

HIS POWER LEVEL IS OVER 5000!!

hahha he only made it to 3 in the original DBZ series. it happened at the same time as that. he taught goten and trunks the fusion thingy and then at one point fused with vegita using earings.

THEN dbgt starts after they kill off Buu and meet Uub and by that time the manga had totally ended. Basically DBGT ran entirely off of Akira Toruyama's popularity wave and nothing else.

Wow dude.

your a beast when it comes to DBZ

I remember watching the end of the Buu saga (who the **** is Uub? is he skinny buu?)

and being hyped for GT and then cartoon network never aired it

Who was that black kid in GT?

It's amazing the rationality and ****ty patchwork to the storytelling your willing to put with as a kid
