Dragon Ball! by GenghisKwan Dragon Ball! by GenghisKwan
This was one of the show I grew up with. I love all the saga up to Piccolo.  As a kid it was really cool to see all the Super Siyan stuff.  Watching it in elementary school seeing goku turn super felt like I was on drugs. But going back into it I felt Dragon Ball started to lose a lot of its essences after the Piccolo saga.  As most fan knows Toriyama was going to end the manga after Frieza, but because of the success publisher got him to con't the story.  Which reading it again felt there wasn't more story in it anymore. 
This also meant a lot for my sister and me. I had a friend that would bring video tapes of it from Hong Kong.  He would lend it to me, and my sister and I would wake up 40 minute earlier just to watch it before school.  I loved this show still and hope you guys enjoy this fan piece as well :) and check out the 2nd of my Dragon Ball series art

This must be one of the very best Dragonball fanarts I've ever seen :wow:

And seeing such a fabulous drawing warms my heart.

Yeah, I agree that series started to lose its essence after the Piccolo Saga.

I love this so much! You made baby Piccolo so cute. :D
I really can't watch DBZ after the Frieza saga. I feel like all the focus just turned toward the Saiyans and how cool and powerful Goku was, and most of the original team just faded into the background. I wish Akira Toriyama would've just ended it there.

lovely story, same happened to me, I used to search dragon ball in the internet all the time and there was all these images of super saiyan goku, little goku, super saiyan trunks, goku ss4, , gogeta, vegeto,etcetc. I always trying to imagine how is this going to happen and whennnn is this happening!!! I was dying to see it, the day it finally happened ...it was like jhfajshfja I cant describe it! too many feels. I couldnt stop watching goku´s yellow hair after his first transformation with frieza, I wasnt even paying much attention to what they were saying all I saw was his yellow hair and how goku acted super different.
I used to tape every episode also, have many cassettes but all of them have fungus now :(
