There was a time.. a long time ago.. when I discovered the Dragon Ball anime. It was broadcast after 2 P.M. in the afternoon – and every single day I was hurrying back home from school to catch the day’s episode of Goku’s adventures.
I remember I was mystified, I was captivated by the richness of the story, the complexity of it, and I was living the emotions of each of the episodes.
Then.. I started writing down detailed reviews of the episodes, creating a memoir of Dragon Ball facts.
I can’t say what happened to those notebooks.. since this was ages ago..
And here I am.. lots of years after watching the first episode of Dragon Ball, not only re-watching the entire series.. to catch up with the new releases of episodes, but also reading the manga and setting up a series of articles in which is discussed the story of the Dragon Ball universe.
Dragon Ball (1986-1989) was the first anime released as an adaptation of the manga. The series covers the manga chapters 1-194. Dragon Ball Z is set in the chapters numbered 195-519. I watched Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z entirely some years ago..and I wanted to refresh the memory of the story beginning to re-watch the series.
The first 13 episodes consist of the Emperor Pilaf Saga.
