While the original Dragon Ball anime followed Goku from childhood to early adulthood, Dragon Ball Z is a continuation of his adult life, but at the same time parallels the life of his son, Gohanas well as the development of his rival Vegeta. Due to the success of the anime in the United States, the manga chapters making up its story were initially released by Viz Media under the Dragon Ball Z title. Dragon Ball Z' s popularity has spawned numerous releases which have come to represent the majority of content in the Dragon Ball franchise; including 15 movies, 2 TV specials, and video games many of them being only released in Japanand a host of soundtracks stemming from this material.
Dragon Ball Z remains a cultural icon through numerous adaptations and re-releases, including a more-recent remastered broadcast titled Dragon Ball Kai. Dragon Ball Z picks up five years after the end of the Dragon Ball anime, with Goku now a young adult and father to his son, Gohan.
The Saiyans had sent Goku originally named " Kakarot " to Earth as an infant to conquer the planet for them, but he suffered a traumatic brain injury soon after his arrival and lost all memory of his mission, as well as his bloodthirsty Saiyan nature.
Goku refuses to help Raditz continue the mission, which results in Raditz kidnapping Gohan. Goku decides to team up with his former enemy Piccolo in order to defeat Raditz and save his son, while sacrificing his own life in the process. Piccolo is killed by Nappa during the battle, along with Goku's allies YamchaTien Shinhan and Chiaotzu with Chiaotzu sacrificing himself to save Tienand both Kami and the Dragon Balls cease to exist as a result of Piccolo's death.
After Goku finally arrives at the battlefield, he avenges his fallen friends by defeating Nappa with his new level of power. Vegeta executes Nappa for his failure and does battle with Goku, but is ultimately defeated thanks to the efforts of Gohan and Goku's other surviving allies, Krillin and Yajirobe.
At Goku's request, they spare Vegeta's life and allow him to escape Earth, with Vegeta vowing to return and destroy the planet out of revenge for his humiliation at Goku's hands.
While Goku recovers from his injuries, Gohan, Krillin and Goku's oldest friend Bulma depart for Namek in order to use these Dragon Balls to revive their fallen friends. However, they discover that Vegeta's superior, the galactic tyrant Lord Friezais already there, looking to use the Dragon Balls for himself so that he can achieve immortality.
A fully healed Vegeta arrives on Namek as well, also seeking immortality from the Dragon Balls, which leads to several battles between him and Frieza's henchmen. Realizing he is overpowered, Vegeta teams up with Gohan and Krillin to fight the Ginyu Forcea team of elite mercenaries summoned by Frieza. During this time, an evil lifeform called Cell emerges and, after absorbing two of the Androids to achieve his "perfect form", holds his own fighting tournament to decide the fate of the Earth, known as the "Cell Games".
After Goku sacrifices his own life a second time, to no avail, Gohan avenges his father by destroying Cell after ascending to the second level of Super Saiyan. Soon after, Goku and his allies are drawn into a fight by the Supreme Kai against a magical being named Majin Buu summoned by the evil wizard Babidi. After numerous battles that result in the deaths of many of Goku's allies as well as the destruction of Earth, Goku whose life is fully restored by the Elder Supreme Kai kills Kid Buu the original and most powerful form of Majin Buu with a Spirit Bomb attack containing the energy of all the inhabitants of Earth, who were resurrected along with the planet by the Namekian Dragon Balls.

The DC Artists Alley vinyl line is inspired by the comic convention experience and mergesThe series is a close adaptation of the second and far longer portion of the Dragon Ball manga written and drawn by Akira Toriyama.
In the United States, the manga's second portion is also titled Dragon Ball Z to prevent confusion for younger readers. Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of the adult Goku who, along with his companions, defends the earth against an assortment of villains ranging from intergalactic space fighters and conquerors, unnaturally powerful androids and near indestructible magical creatures. While the original Dragon Ball anime followed Goku through childhood into adulthood, Dragon Ball Z is a continuation of his adulthood life, but at the same time parallels the maturation of his son, Gohanas well as other characters from Dragon Ball and more.
The separation between the series is also significant as the latter series takes on a more dramatic and serious tone. The anime also features characters, situations and back-stories not present in the original manga. The series average rating was After Dragon Ball Zthe story of Goku and friends continues in the anime-only series Dragon Ball GTwhich is not based on a manga by Akira Toriyama, but is a project by Toei Animation using the same characters and storyline that serves as a sequel to Dragon Ball Z.
In the U. It was also shown in Canada on YTV around the same time. It aired in the UK, with the same dubbing problem, on Cartoon Network, premiering on March 6, and running on that channel until After the finished run, it was repeated daily, until Toonami merged with Cartoon Network. In New Zealand it was shown in TV3. This re-cut is titled Dragon Ball Z Kai. Dragon Ball Z was marketed to appeal to a wide range of viewers from all ages, and contains crude humor and occasional excesses of violence which are commonly seen as inappropriate for younger audiences by American standards.
When it was first marketed in the US, the distribution company Funimation alongside Saban decided to initially focus exclusively on the young children's market, because the anime market was still small compared to the much larger children's cartoon market. This censorship often had unintentionally humorous results, such as changing all references to death so the dead characters were merely going to "another dimension", and digitally altering two ogres ' shirts to read "HFIL" instead of " HELL ".
Starting with the Captain Ginyu Saga on Cartoon Network, censorship was reduced due to fewer restrictions on cable programming. Funimation did the dubbing on their own this time around with their own voice actors.
InFunimation began to redub the first two sagas of Dragon Ball Zto remove the problems that were caused from their previous partnership with Saban. They also redubbed the first three movies. However, the show still retained some level of censorship, not out of FCC laws, but out of choice by Funimation, so as to cater to the possible sensitivity of western audiences. For example, Mr. Satan was renamed "Hercule" to avoid any religious slurs; his daughter, Videlwas a play on the word "Devil", but Funimation felt that the connection was obscure enough to not worry about.
Main article: Filler. Filler is used to pad out the series for many reasons; in the case of Dragon Ball Zmore often than not, it was because the anime was running alongside the manga, and there was no way for the anime to run ahead of the manga since Toriyama was still writing it, at the same time.
The company behind the anime, Toei Animationwould occasionally make up their own side stories to either further explain things, or simply to extend the series.
Filler does not come only in the form of side stories, though; sometimes it is as simple as adding some extra attacks into a fight.

One of the more infamous examples of filler is the Frieza Saga. After Frieza had set the planet Namek to blow up in five minutes, the final fight between Goku and Frieza still lasted well over five episodes, much less five minutes, although this can be attributed to the fact that Namek simply took longer to explode than Frieza expected. Also, there were many numerous filler scenes that took place while the battle with Frieza was in motion, which accounts for much of the footage during the planet's explosion.
As the anime series was forced to expand 12 pages of manga text into 25 minutes of animation footage, these changes were introduced to kill time or to allow the anime writers to explore some other aspect of the series' universe.

Of coarse it has its flaws, but every great show does!! It has action, suspense if you watched episode by episode on Cartoon Network love, and character development. With me, whatever version I see first, that is the one I enjoy the most.
I prefer the English version over the original Japanese version, just because I saw the dub before the Japanese version.
